Today's deal gets you a $60 worth of sushi and more at Ami Sushi, located inside the Bamboo Lounge, for $30. Use your Groupon between Sunday and Thursday and get a free round of sake bombs for your table. Bring three friends or more and you can use two gift certificates for $120 worth of sushi, plus the round of free sake bombs, all while talking about friend stuff such as barn raisings, Monopoly strategy, and unsuccessful dental procedures.
Ami Sushi's menu is full of delicious specialty rolls (starting at $9). Try the Under a Rainbow (crab, cucumber, and avocado wrapped with tuna, salmon, yellow tail, and shrimp), Samurai (crab, shrimp, cucumber, cream cheese, and masago wrapped with salmon and avocado), or Ninja (tempura shrimp, snow crab, and cucumber wrapped with albacore, avocado, and stealthy-but-delicious ninja sauce).
Ami also slices up a sea-fresh variety of nigiri, sashimi ($7 for 5, $17.50 for 16), and happy rolls. Salad lovers can order the spicy tuna salad (ahi tuna, cucumber, kawaiti sprouts, gobo, masago, esame dressing, $8) or poke salad (marinated tuna, salmon, and yellow tail on wakame salad, $9) or the classic seaweed salad ($3). Sides include edamame ($3) and miso soup ($2.50).
The restaurant features a gently skittering soundscape of drum 'n' bass and global dub that might spur creative diners into ordering in haiku or with a 12-minute performance-art piece that involves a sushi mat and reading excerpts from an episode of AfterMASH.

Haikus are an ideal form of poetry because their short length and formal structure forces their writers to condense complex ideas and feelings into limited space. When you need to say a lot in just a few words, try the following useful haikus:
“When Trapped in a Well”
Help, I am well trapped
That is, badly trapped and here
In a well no less
“When Conceding the Presidency”
I thank supporters
I must thank wife and children
To dustbin with me
“When It Becomes Clear That The Future From Terminator 2 is Happening”
Only solace in haikus
Now I’m exploding

T-Lounge defies expectations. Though Japan, Italy, and Mexico are literally dozens of miles apart, the eatery brings their foods together on its eclectic menu. For example, gourmet sushi rolls are served with steaming plates of fettuccine pasta or chicken quesadillas. On Saturdays and Sundays, the kitchen converts to breakfast food, serving omelets and breakfast sandwiches, and their deli serves healthy sandwiches piled with freshly sliced meats and veggies. T-Lounge serves numerous varieties of beer and wine—such as draft Guinness Stout—and also doubles as an art gallery, which features work from local artists such as Stacy D'Aguiar or Kansley Pye.
