Make glorious music that makes inanimate objects jealous with today’s Groupon: for $87, you get a small-group introductory DJ course followed by one hour of practice time (a $175 value) at School of Remix on Dunlevy Street.

A host of professional DJs armed with a suite of sound-shaping implements staff School of Remix, a mixing and scratching academy where fledgling DJs earn their wings. Turn fertile brainwaves into tuneful soundwaves with the aid of an hour-long introductory course in DJing, where knowing soundsmiths illustrate the principles of beat-matching, simple mixing concepts, proper use of equipment, and techniques to induce crowds to pump fists at the ceiling rather than your face. Professional DJs from Vancouver’s club scene lead School of Remix’s one-on-one sessions, where their encouragement and individual guidance sets neophytes on the path to party demigod-hood.

Students can use their home compu-portals to view the School of Remix studios, where they may someday raise lost beats from the grave and commune with the ghosts of mixes past. School of Remix also employs one of the only living humans certified to teach Ableton music software in Western Canada, who passes on his knowledge only to those who prove their valour in singles tennis.

Regal recluses can also settle into the sunny, spacious loft, with elegant eggshell walls and a private bar. Situated near the waterfront, satiated saturnaliasts can meander through the surrounding environs for languid window-shopping or a romantic stroll through Portside Park.

With more than 425 exhibitors, celebrity guests, and three stages of events and attractions, the BC Home + Garden Show quells decoration disquietude and home-repair rancour. The show, like a sole human at a stuffed-animal tea party, dutifully plays host to the latest product lines and features displays on interior design, renovation, and home entertainment. Bryan Baeumler, host of HGTV’s Disaster DIY, and a gaggle of other celebrity guests and local experts answer questions and lead seminars on the dos and don’ts of renovation, design trends for 2011, and programming homes to narrate apocalyptic sci-fi tales.

After cutting a swath through the dense forest of gardening implements and vintage lamps, grant foraging feet a rest at the patio lounge. Parched gardeners can test their new watering cans with a cocktail upon the lounge’s artificial lawn, and appreciators of the fine art of crafting fine art can peruse the urban market, a gallery and shop displaying the fine arts, pottery, and sculpture of local and West Coast craftspeople.

Though reviews for the BC Home + Garden Event are still growing, the national Home + Garden Events series has more than 3,200 Facebook fans.

http://phreshspa.com/

Today’s Groupon to pHresh Spa + Wellness Club, located in Davie Village. Choose between the following options:

– For $150, you get three bikini-line or French laser hair-removal treatments (up to a $330 value).
– For $99, you get three lip, chin, or underarm laser hair-removal treatments (up to a $237 value).

The staff at pHresh Spa + Wellness Club heaps healthy spa services on Vancouverite visages. Laser hair removal toasts unruly hair roots into oblivion with the aid of a smooth jazz–gentle laser cadence, courtesy of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology. The spa’s equipment efficiently flows photons across façades, allowing for a speedier silkening process. A special cooling process chills and soothes skin during treatment, saving clients the traditional postsession polar dip.

Beach bunnies in need of defurring can achieve swim-trunk worthy contours by opting for a bikini or French treatment (a more comprehensive version of the bikini), and clients with undesirable above-torso feathers can zap away at lips, the chin, or underarms. Let go of fleeting Sasquatch lookalike contest daydreams and buy two Groupons for optimally smooth slates. This deal is valid for both new and current clients of pHresh Spa + Wellness Club.
