There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of tapas, pizza, and other international eats and pours at Classic Jack's on 17 Avenue Southwest.
A casual gastro-lounge, Classic Jack's welcomes diners to perch at the salubriously stocked bar and pepper drinks and conversation with local, organic fare. Meander past the tall picture windows and settle into a high bar chair, a prime vantage point by which to view the big game and ensure meals are not attacked by baby giraffes. Peruse a menu of sumptuous entrees and burgers, such as the salmon vin blanc with portobello ravioli ($16) or an Applewood-smoked cheddar burger ($14) made with Alberta beef, caramelised onions, and triple-smoked bacon. Pay homage to mountaintop yodelling or every Celine Dion song ever by ending meals on a high note, with desserts such as the baked-to-order homemade apple pie, served with a dollop of Mario's vanilla-bean gelato ($6).
