Employees at Indigo Wild liken their work environment to recess, with dancing and laughing and sometimes dogs — up to 16 at a time. The old brick warehouse that's home to Zum Bar offers tours at 1 p.m. Thursdays by appointment. Inside the playground-cum-business (3125 Wyandotte, 800-361-5686), you can witness the from-scratch soap-making process, which includes something that sounds complex and mysterious: "saponification." If the heavenly scents provoke you to purchase some Zum, be sure to look in the scrap bin, where soaps with imperfections — bars that came out as ovals rather than circles, for instance — are sold at a discount. We can hope that the tour concludes with a game of Red Rover. For more information, call 816-285-4224.
