Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, bourbon, and beer at Current.
Current specializes in gourmet burgers with rich, decadent flavors that make ideal companions for an array of top-shelf bourbons and specialty brews. Prime the digestive toboggan track with a shareable starter from Current’s delectable menu, such as the signature beer-battered onion rings with creamy rémoulade dip ($8) before moving on to the main event—your choice of a half-pound ground-beef, turkey, or black-bean burger. Eyes and stomach battle over enormous offerings, such as the Current burger with pepper jack, bacon, grilled onions, and bourbon glaze ($11); the Hangover burger piled high with cheddar, bacon, chili, fried egg, and onion rings ($11); and the Barnyard burger, a supernova combination of cheddar, chicken tenders, sliced turkey, traumatic hayride memories, bacon, and grilled onions ($12). Those suffering from hamburger allergies find solace in a dinner menu rife with comfort-food options, such as shrimp and grits ($18), blackened-chicken alfredo ($15), and a seasonal market-price steak.
Like a rescue shelter for heady after-dinner elixirs, Current boasts more than 50 bourbons to clamor for the attention of the discerning snifter sipper. Bourbons range from rare top-shelf offerings to smooth and affordable options from labels such as Knob Creek, Jefferson’s Reserve, Buffalo Trace, and Grandpa's Dusty Jug of Regrettable Rye ($5–$16/shot). Enjoy a specialty beer from Current's crafted compendium, which includes Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and Bell’s Two Hearted Ale ($5/bottle). Live music Wednesday through Sunday inspires diners to put down their drinks on the elongated wooden bar and dance feverishly amid rows of brick spectators.
