Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet cheese, coffee, and more at Cork Café Wine & Coffee in Cypress. This Groupon cannot be used towards alcohol.
Cork Café Wine & Coffee offers a wide selection of imported cheeses, desserts, and more. Nestled within its intimate interiors, free WiFi keeps patrons knee-deep in digital data while loading Texas spicy red- pepper hummus ($7) and aromatic cheese plates (four selections, $27) into their dental USB ports. Share savory plates of salami or prosciutto ($5) and mixed green olives ($5) before indulging in an array of sweet treats, such as raspberry-champagne truffles ($5 for four) and slices of chocolate-turtle cheesecake ($6 each). Sip on a selection of gourmet teas ($3.50), fair-trade coffees ($1.50–$1.95), and espresso beverages to ward off sleep and the nudity nightmares that follow. Check the event schedule for live music performances, during which taste and smell are dutifully accompanied by their curmudgeonly chaperone, sound, for a sweetly awkward, PG-rated tri-sensuous evening.
Cork Café Wine & Coffee provides a cozy, low-lit environment for off-line and online chatting, with comfy seating surrounded by a sea of sloshing wine bottles. Though today's deal is not valid for alcohol purchases, Cork's extensive wine list offers a variety of reds and whites to pair with food or splash on white leather pantsuits.
