Unlike a fork and knife, a pair of chopsticks requires only one hand, allowing you to carbo-load as you break the world record for waving at cars. Say hello to this Groupon.

$15 for $30 Worth of Hookah, Japanese Cuisine, and Drinks

The menu includes baked scallop rolls with crab, avocado, cucumber, and spicy mayo ($15), 12-piece sashimi samplers ($15), and Shabu-Shabu hot pots with Aurora Angus ribeye ($16 for 10 pieces). Customers can also gather around a hookah ($20 for new, $9 refill) with up to three flavors such as apple, mint, sweet melon, and tangerine dream.

Lotus

A Buddha statue sits serenely against one wall inside Lotus, a spot that's part art venue, part restaurant, and part indoor hookah garden. Stalks of bamboo support the bar and the tables where diners grasp sushi with chopsticks or submerge thinly sliced steak, seasonal vegetables, and other morsels into Japanese Shabu-Shabu filled with boiling kelp water.

Fruity smoke drifts through the open space of the hookah garden, melding with fragrant steam from cups of hot tea. Egyptian rugs and massive cushions create an opulent, relaxing vibe for puffing away or sipping a cocktail.

The shabu shabu was good, the rolls were unique and fresh, and the hookah was great also.
