Knowing how to create a tasty cocktail is a must for any singleton or savvy host looking to liven up their next book-club meeting. Seize this opportunity to learn top techniques from the pros, and savour your new skills on a Saturday night at home or at the home of vacationing neighbours.

Today’s Groupon: for $99, you get 20 laps around a full racecourse and an instructional briefing (a $199 value) at The RaceLab in Chilliwack.

The RaceLab provides Vancouver-area thrill junkies an outlet of fast-paced kart racing with professional instruction and high-powered vehicles. The geared karts forgo the typical lawnmower engine in lieu of a 28hp, two-stroke Italian machine capable of reaching 130 km/h, allowing grass cutters around the nation to rumble a sigh of relief. To complement the speed of the four-wheeled frames, racers trace the lines of the Greg Moore Raceway, garnering adrenaline as minivans look on with bitter jealousy. Before embarking on the 20 lap vision-blurring ride, a professional instructor briefs Formula One–inspired karters on proper handling procedures for their vehicle. Racers must be at least 16 years of age to participate, and all customers must make a reservation.

Tapenade Bistro cloaks each experience in a tasty tapestry woven from fresh Ocean Wise-compliant seafood, threaded with French and Mediterranean influences and brocaded in idyllic views of Steveston’s charming fishing fleet. The bouillabaisse ($19 for lunch; $27 for dinner), a stew of fresh fish, prawns, diver scallop, Salt Spring Island mussels, clams and shellfish, shows off chef Alex Tung’s talents for harmonizing flavors even as he elucidates them, while the coq au vin ($26), a Cornish hen accented in smoked bacon and fleur de Dijon spaetzle, will leave taste buds tingling with euphoria. Vegetarians can swaddle mouths with pillows of the gnocchi tapenade ($20), and a range of appetizers like beef striploin carpaccio ($11) and beet salad ($10) ensures that, unlike tipsy ballerinas, meals get off on the right foot. A six-page wine and drinks menu lists myriad choices for pairing entrees and plying imaginary spouses.

Ocean Breeze Spa

http://www.oceanbreezespa.ca/

Today’s Groupon: for $75, you get microdermabrasion and a mini facial (a $155 value) at Ocean Breeze Spa, located on Mainland Street in the heart of Yaletown.

Ocean Breeze Spa stands as an oasis of indulgence for the modern urbanite. Even if you follow a rigorous skin-care routine, you likely lack the tools necessary to really probe into your pores and de-clog them from all the makeup, dirt, and gunk trapped inside. Ocean Breeze’s mini facial can help silkify canvas-coarse skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, tautening the dermis, and getting rid of bothersome blackheads in one soothing swoop. If you’d like a treatment targeting your specific needs, an upgrade to a customized facial is available—just apply the value of the Groupon and pay the difference. Today’s package also treats spa-goers to a microdermabrasion treatment for a velvety visage clear of dull, freeloading dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion revamps worn countenances with micro crystals that diminish visibility of sun damage, acne scarring, and inconsistent pigmentation. In addition to your mini facial and microdermabrasion treatment, you’ll get a 20 per cent discount off any hair service purchased on the same visit.
