Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon to Bocci's on 7th. Choose between the following options:
• For $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare for dinner, which starts at 5 p.m.
• For $5, you get $10 worth of Italian fare for lunch.
The cuisine connoisseurs at Bocci's on 7th sate appetites with heaps of fresh pasta, protein-laden sandwiches, and other Italian favorites. After sipping a daily soup and nibbling on house-made focaccia bread ($5), track down enticing entrees such as grilled chicken fettuccine alfredo ($12.25) or wild mushrooms that burrow into ravioli and roll gleefully in cream sauce ($13.25).
Midday meal-seekers can take a break from arguing about whether whales sing or merely hum, filling their mouths with a veggie calzone ($7.25) or bacon cheddar burger ($7.95), which arrives bedecked with fries kept free of trans fats ($7.95). Cool off overworked molars with a Ninkasi Spring beer ($3.75) served in a chilled glass, or an original concoction such as the Ruby Rain Drop ($4.75), a blend of vodka, cranberry syrup, and grapefruit juice poured directly from an opening in the clouds into your martini glass. Booci's is not open Mondays and Tuesdays.
