Choosing pizza toppings is a lot like being married: if there is an irreconcilable disagreement, both parties take half. Grab a piece of the pie with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of homemade pizza and drinks at Comet Ping Pong.
Comet Ping Pong was featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and has garnered praise from local press, including the Washington Post, for its sustainably sourced fare, homemade pizza, young and energetic atmosphere, and rows of indoor and outdoor ping-pong and foosball tables that patrons play for free. Saucy starters such as the hot wings ($6) flap in time with tunes played live by local and international musicians in a family-friendly atmosphere, and bronzed dough disks such as The Smoky ($13) stuff jaws with bacon and smoked mushrooms until they stop gabbing about the performers onstage.
Microbrews ranging from draughts of Allagash white ($6) to bottles of The Raven Special lager ($5) soften tongues hardened from resolute combat with the Steel Wills pizza ($13)—a mountain of spinach, fresh ricotta, and black olives—and arguments with opponents who insist that their solid titanium ping-pong paddle is legal. Live shows may sometimes charge a cover, which is not included with this Groupon.
