What You'll Get
Without knowing thy neighbors, it's socially reprehensible to picket for a cup of sugar, siphon lawn-mower gasoline, or demand an autograph on the photo of their sleeping face. Get acquainted with your surroundings with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a one-hour carriage ride for two (a $100 value) from Elegant Carriages, followed by $40 worth of dinner for two at Washington Platform in Cincinnati (a $140 total value).
Elegant Carriages escorts visitors along scenic Cincinnati byways in exquisite horse-drawn carriages. Before or after dinner, riders can get picked up straight from the restaurant and enjoy the peaceful streets of Cincinnati in an open-air buggy without the roofed confines of a car or paddywagon. Drivers are dapper, horses are groomed and pro-neigh, and the route is carefully guided to ensure maximum safety and sightseeing surprises.
Housed in the renovated confines of a saloon built in the 19th century, the Washington Platform crafts a savory menu of inventive seafood, steaks, sandwiches, and homemade desserts. The black forest pretzel sandwich, a marriage of hot roast beef, grilled onion, and melted swiss cheese hugged into a pretzel loaf ($8.75), features life-saving succulence and enough packable energy to thwart a double-crossing wolf mother. Blue crab blue penne pasta frolics with creole-spiced blue-cheese cream sauce ($12.95), and tempura shrimp slap tail-fives amid cocktail sauce or honey mustard ($19.95). Homemade desserts and a wide selection of beer, sparkling wine, and stoic wine elevate the meal from standard to exemplary with every spiraling bubble.
