Inspired by early 20th century chili parlors, Hard Times Cafe aims to preserve the tradition of delectable, hearty fare served in a friendly, lively community eatery. Elevate taste buds to new heights with an order of legendary grilled wings in one of five flavors, including original Texas, chili-lime, honey-barbecue, and eternity ($8.99 per order). Hard Times Cafe serves four distinct varieties of chili. The authentic chili mac is served over spaghetti with your choice of accouterments ($7.49–$8.89). Burgers, sliders, and chili dogs are easily transportable by hand or hovercraft, and savory steaks and other suppertime favorites provide more refined nourishment options. To reward you for your literary prowess, every Groupon reader who texts HTCGRP to 59925 gets an additional coupon good for one order of bar nachos. Combine this offer with a Groupon, or save it for a subsequent visit.

Tea With Mrs. B's fun-filled classes will give kids of all ages the skills they'll need to participate in school, make meaningful social connections, challenge their corrupt, incumbent class treasurers, and succeed in their future careers. Tea with Mrs. B offers monthly sessions for boys and girls, consisting of four weekly classes that each focus on a specific topic such as communication, body language, and correspondence. During each hour-long class, kids will learn a lesson or two, make a corresponding craft, and usually sit down for tea and snacks to practice table manners and conversational skills that don't involve boorish renditions of Alec Baldwin's monologue from Glengarry Glen Ross.

Flaxella sprinkles its menu of wholesome bites with flaxseed, a natural source of protein, fiber, and heart-healthy omega-3s. Start the day with an invigorating flaxseed mocha ($3.25–$3.95) or a sunrise sandwich, which tops a croissant with a fresh egg and a serenade from a rooster ($3.75). The veggie delight sandwich whisks antioxidants to mouths on a rainbow of red tomatoes, yellow squash, and roasted green zucchini ($6.50). Instead of dining in a sleeping bag, make lunch snugglier with the Dakota Roll-Up ($5.75) or a bed of romaine salad with a chicken-salad pillow and a flax-vinaigrette blanket ($6.25).

Cuteness is a legitimate business plan at Frosting's treat boutique, which is minimally dressed in cream-colored shades throughout both indoor and outdoor seating areas. The cupcake flavors ($2.75 each) come in 26 varieties and, like the seasons, rotate daily. Nibble on the edelweiss, richly almond tasting and topped with further almond buttercream, or crunch into the french-toast inspired Frenchie with a buttery maple dollop up top. There's even a few gluten-free flavors, such as the densely choctacular and fudge-topped cioccolato and the flavorful coconut-dusted snowflake.
