You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Omaha: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
When hunger's hordes besiege your stomach walls, the best defense is to flood your inner moats with beer before crushing the attacker under mighty slabs of grilled meat. Today’s Groupon will help you stay king of your body-castle: for $25, you get $50 worth of all-American fare and drinks at 94/95 Sports Grille on Omaha’s west side. There's no buy limit, so feel free to make 94/95 your second living room.
94/95's name is a homage to the two years in a row that the Cornhuskers won the NCAA national football championship. Owner Clester Johnson played on those teams, and he and expert chef Chris Morgan are focused on bringing the same high honors to their premier Omaha sports bar. 94/95’s menu features a wide range of options that includes salads, steaks and chops, seafood, sandwiches, pastas, and pizzas, as well as a noteworthy wine list. Slow down hunger’s advance with appetizers and salads such as the stuffed mushroom caps ($8), crab cakes ($8), and spinach salad (half for $6, full for $8) before establishing a solid running game with a black ham and Boursin burger ($10) or a pulled-pork sandwich ($9). Meatheads, meanwhile, can mix things up with 94/95 specialties such as chicken roulade ($14), baby back ribs ($15), 14-oz. ribeye ($24), or mustard-syrup-glazed pork chops ($19). Sailors who have been stranded in Nebraska ever since the Pacific tide receded from Omaha can pass the time with a seafood order of grilled salmon ($18) or walleye almondine ($16).
Since watching sports live on TV is much more fun than having friends reenact highlights the next day using plastic army-men figurines and high-pitched voices, 94/95 has strategically placed an array of crystal-clear flat screens for your viewing pleasure. With upscale décor and a sports-oriented environment, 94/95 is the perfect place to go the next time your monocle-sporting brother and fantasy-football-addict sister are in town.
- I had the Mediterranean Pasta…had a huge portion, it was super. My DH had the backyard burger with fries, awesome. Waiters [sic] recommendation for wine was a hit as well. – FairNorma, TripAdvisor
- Drinks are solid (not too strong, but never watered down). They've got a good selection of all types of liquors and more variety on tap than a lot of bars I've been to in Omaha. – Ben W., Yelp
- For dinner, the food is great and the atmosphere is high class. For watching sports, its [sic] the best place in town, with like 15 HDTVs and comfortable seating. – Whitney, Google Maps
