Understood, but this thread is primarily eating, as are most published Groupon deals.
If not, then I'll just post links to the updates.

This was not on Saturday night. It was sunday night. And it looked like they are having a set promotion for a little while at least. Signs about it all over the store and on every table.

Thanks! I'm actually in the Beck building and will probably use the cafe here, although it isn't Mehadrin.

It'll also allow me to boost my ego through increasing my post count.
After all, a man is defined by the amt of his postings.

Speak for yourself.
I mean, gee whiz, if I can't be proud of size 15 shoes, then I have to rely on my post count.

(And if I sound giddy, it's b/c a project I worked on for the last 2+ yrs was just sent out to the shuk!!)
