Coffee is often called a miracle drug, not only because it cures numerous diseases including ataxia and ear splints, but also because it has the amazing power to either wake you up or help you relax. Wake up or unwind with today's Groupon, offering $10 worth of buzzy beverages at Rooster & Moon Coffee Pub for $5.

Trade in today's Groupon for two 16 oz. bags of any of Pablo's fresh grinds such as the best-selling Danger Monkey, a full-bodied house blend of African and Indonesian coffees that instills drinkers with the pep of an early rising orangutan. Or, take a caffeinated jaunt around the globe with pound bags of coffee sourced directly from Sumatra, Kenya, Guatemala, and other international locations. For java junkies unable to wait until they get home to soak up a fresh roasted cup, today's deal also scores buyers a small drip coffee, which can be enjoyed during the ride home, or in Pablo's cozy neighborhood storefront, complete with a checkerboard ceiling and hundred-year-old wooden floors.
An "experience that is thoroughly unique—insane, even." That's how the Denver Post describes navigating the gaming options inside Punch Bowl Social's 24,000-square-foot home. Besides classic bar games such as billiards, pinball, and darts, the emporium encompasses skeeball, board games, and a 1980s-style arcade. If that's not enough, a full-floor shuffleboard court and an eight-lane bowling alley add to the mix with comfortable leather seating framing play areas.
To match Punch Bowl Social's eclectic entertainment, its culinary team crafts equally fun and varied diner bites. On the weekends cooks focus on breakfast options such as mixed berry waffles, cast-iron skillets, and biscuits and gravy served with cage-free eggs. Lunch and dinner options include chicken and waffles, street tacos, a patty melt, and a catfish sandwich with jalapeno slaw. A special menu of pickled foods includes okra and jalapenos and helps game players make just the right puckered face to distract competitors from scoring. To complement all the eating and playing, bartenders serve local drafts, canned beers, adult milkshakes, and signature boozy punches until 2 a.m. every night.
