Prepare for grilling season with today's side deal. For $10, the friendly folks at Propane Taxi will happily deliver a new, full propane tank and haul your empty one away on a day of your choosing (a $22 value).
Seven days a week, the Propane Taxi's tank swappers spread out across the DC area to pick up and drop off their precious cargo. When designating a delivery date online, customers can provide specific instructions on how to access their home tank, which means there's no need to be home. The propane experts will safely escort a new tank to the predetermined location and, if desired, can hook up the new tank for an additional fee.
Some old tanks have undetectable wear, which is why all of Propane Taxi's replacement tanks undergo a thorough inspection and come equipped with an approved overflow-protection device. Skip the hassle of hauling your tank for a fill-up and upgrade to a newly filled, expertly inspected tank with today's deal.
This Groupon is for new customers only. Additional shipping options and spare tanks are not included in this offer.
The Washington Post profiled Propane Taxi, and Metblogs and Greater Greater Washington bloggers wrote about its convenience:
- A passing complaint two years ago by his sister-in-law about how three Leesburg stores were sold out of propane tanks changed Jason Sabloff's life. Was there, she asked, no one to deliver this summertime mainstay? Was this, he hoped, an entrepreneurial niche just waiting to be filled? Sabloff, 36, had been looking for a way to launch his own business, and here it was. – Annie Groer, Washington Post
- The local hardware store doesn't stock tanks, but before we had to venture far away by car, we discovered Propane Taxi. They drive a tank to your door, exchanging it for the old one (or giving you a new tank if that's what you order, as we did). I placed the order on Friday afternoon and had the tank by lunchtime Saturday. These sorts of businesses make it possible to accomplish more of life's tasks without driving. – David Alpert, Greater Greater Washington

Inspired by visits to museums and amusement parks with their own kids, Thrill-O-Rama's owners Buki and Bibie mustered together an array of activities that entertain youngsters without skimping on education. Each of the facility's nine play zones features its own creative pastime, such as science experiments, educational computer games, age-appropriate reading, and a video-game lounge stocked with a Wii and an Xbox 360. A semi-enclosed toy-filled play space boosts toddlers' motor skills, and a multilevel indoor playground lets older kids shed their wiggles in a bounce castle or on a 15-foot inflatable rock mountain, which formed when an air mattress was stored under tectonic plates. Staff members guide kids through exercise, cooking, and filmmaking classes and adhere to strict safety guidelines to yield a secure play setting. The on-site café fuels romps with a selection of finger foods, drinks, and desserts.
