Hey everyone, welcome to the inaugural edition of Groupon! Each day, we feature something great to do in Chicago while offering an opportunity to win a huge discount. When I say, "win," what I mean is, you don't just get the deal - we only get it if we get a certain number of people to sign up. That's how we work - we guarantee our partners a large number of sales, and in return, they give us the best prices around.
We built Groupon for people like us, who have lived in Chicago for years, but don't take advantage of many of the great things this city has to offer. So we figure, while we're at it, we might as well get it at a discount and pass on the goodness.
We're keeping things hyper-local this week, featuring businesses at (or around) 600 W Chicago Ave. Kicking things off is a great offer from our friends at Motel Bar. If you buy this Groupon, it will get you two (2) of their excellent pizzas for the price of one (1) - $13 - on ANY TUESDAY from now until a year from now. Tuesdays also happen to be the day Motel Bar offers $3 Goose Islands. So we're talking pizzas and beers for you and a friend for less twenty bucks.
This is kind of a no-brainer - you all eat at Motel Bar anyway (and if you don't you should), so you might as well get this deal.
So sign up by clicking the "JOIN" button above. We'll collect your information, but you won't win the deal, or be charged a dime, unless at least 24 other people join. So your job isn't done. Send this to your friends, coworkers, and relatives to make sure you get this awesome discount. Act fast this deal is limited to 100!
And please: Don't forget to tip your waitstaff and spay or neuter your pets.
Tomorrow: Another great deal from a company in the building
The Motel Bar
As the first deal Groupon ever featured and modeled after classic hotel-lobby bars of yore, the Motel Bar cops the décor of yesteryear and combines it with a full service bar, menu of American eats, creative cocktails, and signature motel martinis. Servers ferry trays of burgers, flatbread pizzas, and pub-fare appetizers through a glitzy lounge with exposed-brick walls, vinyl seating, and hanging cylindrical lighting. The eatery's outdoor terrace allows claustrophobes to sip cocktails in peace and lets staring-contest champions challenge the sun.
