Though spinning massive amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough spinning to the pros with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of pizza and drinks at The Rock Wood-Fired Pizza & Spirits on Columbia House Boulevard in Vancouver.
This classic-rock-themed restaurant and bar––outfitted with neon signs, checkered buses, and guitar-playing skeletons––serves up a menu sizzling with the seductive whispers of more than 20 varieties of wood-fired pizza. Stained glass windows and a marginally creepy stuffed crow overlook diners as they gorge on burgers, calzones, or pizzas, such as the Bat Outta Hell, a fiery concoction layered with an herb cream-cheese spread, hot cherry peppers, spinach, chicken, roasted pecans, and Cajun spice. The Wild Child, a doughy saucer eclipsed with garlic butter, mozzarella, blue cheese, and sautéed spinach, silences the nags of square stomachs. A kids' menu allows amateur earthlings to munch on meals such as a peanut-butter-and-jelly pizza, while adults sample the 18 signature cocktails and six beers on tap, including the Rock Steady Red, The Rock's signature microbrew with four different caramel malts and Tettnanger hops.
