Burgers and brats are staples of backyard barbecues, along with bobbing for apples in kiddie pools and taking turns throwing a Frisbee toward the sun. Gear up for grilling season with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of meats and more at Gepperth's Market in Old Town.
Gepperth's Market's butchers have been carving aged and tenderized meat, molding specialty game burgers, and stuffing sausage casings with ground veal, beef, and spices for more than 100 years. Prime rib steak ($20.99 per pound), american lamb chops ($16.99 per pound), and dozens of handmade-sausage varieties ($4.99 per pound) can be packed to a customer's specifications and stored in chest freezers, and veal shanks ($16.99) cut for ossobuco can be used to stave off the bruising that stems from typing too hard. In addition to custom-sheared proteins, the shop carries a wide selection of hand-formed beef burgers ($4.99+ per pound) and exotic venison, bison, and elk patties ($10.99+ per pound).
