6804 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia

Today’s Groupon is to the Greenheart Canopy Walkway at UBC Botanical Garden, on Southwest Marine Drive. Choose from the following options:
•$22 for a family admission, which includes two adults and three children (a $49.28 value)
•$11 for one adult admission (a $22.40 value)

The Greenheart Canopy Walk measures out more than 308 metres, with heights reaching up to 17.5 metres to give visitors a bird’s eye view of the rainforest without uncomfortable ocular transplants. Embark on your own self-guided expedition, or head out with a tour. Tours take off every hour, guiding visitors through the lush biodiversity that surrounds the walkway, which was made using “treehugger” technology, a system of interlaced cables that leave trees physically and emotionally unscathed. Breathe in the bounty of Pacific coast rainforest as you greet an eclectic ensemble of treetop mosses, lichens, birds, and insects via sturdy treetop-cradled path.

After examining the final frontier, peruse through the garden shop for souvenirs served up at a 10% discount. In addition to helping you gain appreciation for the majestic beauty and power of nature, today’s Groupon allows parents and wacky aunts to send kids out into the wilderness until they can start fires with their eyes.

Concerning the schweineschnitzel, crispy bread crumbs envelope an escalope of pork with a fried bear hug as a duo of sautéed potatoes and seasonal vegetables whisper sweet nothings to the buds of expectant tongues. Spaetzle, a traditional German noodle, tag teams tummies along with pork schnitzel and a spicy gypsy sauce, and the kalbsschnitzel recruits veal, potato salad, and green asparagus to quell hunger pangs with smart, Germanic efficiency.

Classic depictions of the German countryside and clean white table clothes further imbue Deutsches Haus with an authentic German flair, unlike claiming to be a descendant of Einstein after failing a math exam.

Inventive interpretations of upscale Italian eats populate Tramonto’s savoury dinner menu. Travel toward taste with a starter such as the foie gras ($21), with Kashmiri-spiced poached peach and caramelized Belgian endive, or attempt the ahi tuna tartar ($13), accompanied by cucumber cups, tobiko, balsamic reduction, and a tomato chutney. The caprese salad ($13) recruits a herd of buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, and balsamic to outrun hunger pangs, and the sockeye salmon ($29) stars as a main dish, steamed and raised with braised leeks, potato gnocchi, tomato confit, and a vermouth cream sauce. The wagyu beef (available at market price) asserts itself as a favourite in the meat-seeking mouths of carnivores, and the chicken ($27) comes stuffed with truffle and goat cheese. After an exciting meal, saunter into the luxurious casino and take your chances at making $10 grow exponentially, like a colony of chinchillas or a love for reality cooking shows.

Sleek black walls, selective lighting, and oversized windows imbue Tramonto with the essence of effortless luxury. Its location within the River Rock Casino Resort adds to the elegance and allows diners to delve into gambling endeavours without having to walk outside into the unlucky atmosphere.

Reviews
Vancouver magazine featured Tramonto and OpenTablers laud the eatery with eight Diners’ Choice Awards. More than 100 TripAdvisors give River Rock Casino Resort a four-star average.

McLean’s Restaurant
http://www.mcleansrestaurant.ca/
200-332 Water St., Vancouver, British Columbia

Former Canucks goaltender Kirk McLean conceptualized his namesake restaurant as an upscale arena filled with inventive and fresh brunch, lunch, and dinner plates. Evening eaters can coordinate a blind date between taste buds and the albacore tuna tartar ($10), where avocado and finely chopped tuna charm mouths with their complexity and crunchy nori seaweed chips swoop in to stave off commitment. The spinach and ricotta ravioli ($21) finds a home in creamy white wine sauce tartified with a teasing of sundried tomatoes. Sweet brunch items include a brioche cinnamon French Toast ($12), with candied walnut, Chantilly cream, and maple syrup, while the savoury side stands up with the Pacific Benedict ($15), which plops smoked salmon onto a couch of soft poached eggs before getting showered in a finish of hollandaise sauce.

Grey flannel booths, black and white photos, and vintage hockey memorabilia create a comforting contrast against the flat screen TVs showcasing hockey and competitive knitting matches. The well-manicured outdoor patio adds to the upscale yet laid back vibe, reminiscent of the slouchy King of France.

Reviews
Vitamin Daily, Savvy Insider, and Follow Me Foodie featured McLean’s Restaurant, and four Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average rating.

An excursion to Maan Farms tractor-pulls families along on hay rides; sends dates wandering through a corn maze and pumpkin patch; and grants goats, ducks, and other livestock a chance to steal visitors’ hearts in the petting zoo. Kids can expend energy on a giant wooden slide and sandbox area before romping around the crooked houses play area or exploring the corn maze. On special Flashlight Nights, daring souls can try to navigate the spooky labyrinth after dark with only the help of their brave, bright beam. After perusing Maan Farms’ pumpkins, guests may purchase their favourites in a range of sizes to accommodate all seasonal needs, such as designing a festive centerpiece or adding on a cozy backyard guesthouse for the holidays.

Eight 1/2 turns its back on microwaves and deep-fryers to serve up fresh, locally sourced Pacific Rim fare. Dive forkfirst into dinner with a small plate such as the four-cheese macaroni ($7.50), bringing together mascarpone, brie, parmesan, and bocconcini—the John, Paul, George, and Norman of the dairy world. Turophiles can quench further cheese desires with a thin-crust pizza such as the marketplace ($10.50), boasting goat cheese and roasted vegetables atop a tomato and pesto base, while meat-mavens can peruse eight 1/2’s array of large plates. The grass-fed steak ($18.50) pairs a 10 oz. free-range slab of beef with roasted-garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies, while the lemongrass mussels ($16.50) steams the bivalves in lemongrass, galangal, red chilies, fresh lime juice, and Thai basil. End dinner with banana bread pudding ($7.50), or fuel up for a night of street-corner breakdancing with a selection from eight 1/2’s wine list or collection of cocktails and beer.

Nestled in a century-old building and adorned with century-old flat-screen TVs, eight 1/2’s elegant interior wraps its guests in a cocoon of exposed brick walls, soft lighting, and wood beamwork.

The friendly and experienced staff populating each location offers a bevy of beautifying body-care services in a serene spa environment, which makes Spa Utopia an ideal place for first-timers and experienced faux tanners alike to darken a pale or wan pelt. During the St. Tropez tonal transformation, an experienced professional will douse your dermis in an even coat of colour via a hand-held melanin-mister that spreads the airborne glaze around all of your body’s nooks and bends, achieving a well-balanced tan. The potion, which is aloe vera based, leaves the skin moisturized and with the look of a healthy, UVA-free glow, without any orange undertones, unsightly streaks, surprising sticker-stars, or phantom faces lurking in darkened or uneven spots.

St. Tropez tans typically last for up to five to seven days, which makes this deal ideal for those embarking on a wedding, business trip, or temp assignment in the mailroom. Call ahead to reserve your spot, and be sure to wear loose-fitting, dark-coloured clothing for the post-tan dry-off period.

A test patch may be required for sensitive skin.
