Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a membership card from EatJXN (a $20 value), available for pick up at one of four locations: Sweet Tree Yogurt, Lemuria Books, Sneaky Beans, or Patty Peck Honda.
Like a hiker trapped beneath a Twinkie landslide, the Jackson-based blogger behind EatJXN nibbles, munches, and feasts his way through mountains of vittles, eventually presenting the tastiest and friendliest locally owned eateries to his reading public. The EatJXN Card allows readers to take advantage of those endeavors with discounts and perks at 19 different restaurants in the Jackson metro-area.
Sweet Tree Yogurt in Ridgeland dollops out active-culture frozen yogurt, with toppings from mini swedish fish to fresh kiwi, at 25% off for cardholders, while Sneaky Beans coffee shop in Jackson up-sizes members' frappes and espressos. EatJXN adherents can relish an entire order of barbecued shrimp and rib-eye steak for 10% off at Ely's Restaurant & Bar or savor one serving of softshell crab at 20% off at Underground 119.
Tote the EatJXN card conveniently through explorations of Jackson cuisine by pocket, keychain, or trained messenger seagull. EatJXN donates $1 per each card purchased to Extra Table, which funnels incoming aid to nonperishable purchases for soup kitchens.
