With today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward cooking classes at Cookshop & Cookschool.

Boasting a different cuisine every day of the month, Cookshop’s cooking classes showcase an array of talented chefs as they mince their way through three or more well-scented hours. Either demonstrative or participatory, the classes entice students to absorb cooking-show-esque knowledge or throw caution to the wind and cover exploratory fingers with icing. Voyeuristic taste buds can journey the world, kicking off a global tour with the June 9 Passport to Italy class, a Sicilian romp through roasted artichokes, tomato-bathed chicken, and ricotta-filled cannoli ($49). Dessert fanatics create sugary, edible pets in a participatory Cupcake Magic class—offered June 26 and July 31 or July 10 for kids ages 10 and older ($59)—which creates a baroque fantasy out of the vanilla cupcake with rolled fondant, rosette swirls, icing drop flowers, and frosting caricatures of local government officials. Culinary horizons are further expanded in delectable class offerings such as Sushi ($59) and Indian Favourites ($79), making restless tongues feel appeased and yearning kitchen appliances feel loved.

Vancouver Water Adventures launches guests on Jet Ski and Sea-Doo tours of Vancouver Harbour, Howe Sound, Bowen Island, and Vancouver’s other surrounding aquatic areas; all tours launch from 1812 Boatlift Lane in Granville Island. During the two-hour wild tour, a nautical navigator educates customers on the scenery and wildlife of Vancouver’s local waters from atop a Jet Ski ($119 per person, plus tax). Expert guides lead pairs to the Pacific Ocean for stunning views of the shoreline and potential small talk with local whale pods. Tours equip riders with a snack and drink, fuel, a wetsuit, a life jacket, and a one-day boater’s licence issued to the driver. More experienced riders ready to tickle Poseidon on their own may instead rent ruddered steeds for a two-hour free-roaming excursion.

For tour option, a $25 damage insurance fee or major credit card is required; for rental option, a major credit card is required for deposit.

Today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of global comfort fare and drinks at Burgoo Bistro. Choose from the following locations: on West 10th Avenue in Vancouver, in North Vancouver, and on Main Street in Vancouver.

Award-winning Burgoo Bistro invites diners to luxuriate palates in a menu comprised of global culinary bliss. Extinguish a dead-end flirtation with hunger with a starter of spanish meatballs ($7) or with the menu’s French ambassador of brie fondue with red apple and crusty bread ($13). Myriad soup and sandwich pairings make for potential combinations nearly as satisfying as the coupling of a blazing bonfire and embarrassing high-school-yearbook photos, such as curried-red-lentil soup ($7) alongside a bread-bookended delicacy such as the gooey cheese grillers with four cheeses ($12). Diners can also opt for classic entrees such as the irish stew, which marries Guinness-braised lamb with homemade dumplings ($18), or ratatouille provençale, a mouth’s birthday gift of oven-roasted veggies baked with bread crumbs and chèvre ($14).

Rather than the traditional table flip, diners can wrap up meals with indulgent desserts such as sticky toffee pudding topped with hot caramel ($7). Meanwhile, a vast selection of beer, wine, mead, and fanciful cocktails such as mint juleps ($8.75) render throats clear and yodel worthy.

A luxurious, European-style eight-room boutique hotel, Whistler Alpine Chalet Retreat & Wellness helps guests restore lost relaxation points during two-night stays (a $518 average value, based on double occupancy). Chalet-inspired bed-and-breakfast-style rooms vary from the vaulted ceilings and jacuzzi tub of the Hemlock room to the cozy queen-size bed and private balcony of the Birch room. Delight in the delicious dichotomy of an outdoor hot tub in winter or take in picturesque views of nearby Alta Lake and the cascading mountains beyond. A private butler is at guests’ beck and call to attend to all manner of requests, ensure a stress-free stay, and to practice his best English accent for an upcoming dinner-theatre performance of Batman.

Both mornings, guests wake to a three-course gourmet breakfast, composed of international cuisine prepared fresh by an on-site chef (a $120 value). Four yoga classes (a $100 value), such as the morning Vinyasa Power Flow course, are also included in the stay, keeping muscles from becoming too relaxed and sleeping through their wake-up call.

A maximum of five classes can be redeemed at any single location, and the personal training session can be redeemed at either the Denman Fitness or Freedom Health Studio locations only.

The inspiring trainers with MetaBody lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Fun sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment ideal for both beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Since the pass sets a five-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimen by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
