What You'll Get
Sticks and stones may break bones and be used to build an unsuccessful raft, but they also heat up to make a delicious pizza. Tame the elements with today's deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of inventively elegant fare and drinks at Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge, an east-side 'za spot that serves Neapolitan pies. Half of the value of this Groupon must be used to purchase food.
Backlit by a massive wood-stone oven, the vibrant interior of Crisp is one part lounge and one part bar. The richly sophisticated décor and robust menu work in concert to please nearly all of the human body's 11 primary senses. For those fixed on hanging a fang on a creative slice ($5/specialty slices, $10/one-topping personal pies, $20/one-topping large pizzas), Crisp's eclectic toppings dance on a savory crust fresh from the wood-stone oven. Start with one of seven sauces such as pesto or curry coconut, then dress the circular creation with protein-rich ingredients such as lamb, blackened chicken, or pine nuts. Go light with plucked plantables such as pineapple, potatoes, asparagus, or mushrooms. Specialty ingredients, such as blue crab, scallops, or prosciutto, are also available for an additional charge. Diners can also pass on the flavor Frisbees in favor of a sandwich such as the Balsamic B.L.T. ($7) or a custom-built salad ($4/regular, $7/large), which like most fashionable hats can be personalized with a wide array of fruits, veggies, cheeses, and toppings.
Partner your tooth fodder with a potable from Crisp's drink menu, be it a cocktail, a tap selection—such as Lakefront IPA ($4) or New Glarus Spotted Cow ($4)—or a red, white, or sparkling wine. Those who prefer to act as smoke machine for their own a capella concert of barbershop classics can also take advantage of Crisp's hookah service, though it is not included in this Groupon.

About Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge
Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge’s super-heated Neapolitan-style oven bakes crunchy cracker-like crusts topped with chef-curated ingredient bouquets or build-your-own-pizza creations. The restaurant also transforms into a morning-meal factory for Friday–Sunday brunches, flipping expectations on the heads with funky adaptations of morning classics, such as the breakfast pizza topped with scrambled eggs and a pepperoni-wrapped alarm clock. By night, the eatery doubles as a music venue, with a rotating schedule of DJs setting hips asway with high-octane playlists.
