Cambridge Brewing Company experiments with hops and barrel-aging processes to create house beers on-site. You don’t have to look hard to catch a glimpse of their brewing tanks and kettles—they’re as much a part of the décor as the exposed-brick walls and pine accents.

The Boston Wine Expo’s Grand Tasting event unites varietals from nearly 200 wineries around the world with cuisine from more than 40 local eateries during four hours of culinary harmony. Attendees can sip more than 1,000 red and white elixirs culled from the grape-producing and wild-cork-taming regions of North America, Europe, the Southern Hemisphere, and the Mediterranean. Samples from Boston-area restaurants such as Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Sandrine’s Bistro complement each swig as vintners enlighten enophiles on current winemaking trends. Throughout the afternoon, top gastronomic maestros tread two stages during live demonstrations that divulge recipes and directions for finding the secret compartment hidden inside every wine bottle. Lifestyle exhibits and a full schedule of seminars enlighten guests on topics ranging from cheese-and-wine matching to the diversity of Italian varietals (not included with this Groupon). A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit local charities.

The food at Mediocre Deli & Pub isn’t mediocre; in fact, it’s “well above mediocre” according to the Portland Press Herald, which added that its unique name is “a badge of deli confidence, eye-catching and ironic.” Owner Aaron Plourde and his wife Cindy may have a sense of humor about the deli’s name, but his deli’s food is downright serious.

They stock their sandwich station with five kinds of cheese and a huge variety of fresh breads. Design-your-own pizzas heap savory meats, cheeses, and veggies atop freshly made crusts. They also dish lighter eats, such as salads, kids' meals, and Maine-style italian sandwiches.
