Like motor oil, a common enemy, or rhubarb-pie potlucks, alcohol has long been known as a powerful social and mechanical lubricant. Keep your conversational wheels from squeaking with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a liquor tasting, your choice of cocktail, and a 12-inch pizza at Captain Jacks (up to a $29 value), located downtown.
Captain Jacks pours a plethora of liquors and cocktails in a comfortable nautical-themed environment. During the liquor tasting, parched patrons receive a flight of four samples of their choice of scotch, vodka, rum, or bourbon, after which they choose a favorite based on taste, color, or flammability. The bartender blends the lucky liquor into one of several cocktails—such as the Corpse Reviver or the Scorpion—and serves it alongside a steaming, gooey 12-inch pizza. Captain Jacks is headquarters for the American Outlaws U.S. Men’s Soccer Support Organization, attracting a multitude of fervent fans and bestowing the bar with boisterous ballyhoo and unparalleled people-watching. Convenient paid parking resides above the building for bar-goers that feel secure knowing their cars can be reached by ejector barstool.
