After Capri Sun began creepily transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, cocktails rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate cocktails, or "nature's Capri Sun," with today’s Groupon. For $20, you get $40 worth of decadent cocktails and creative fare at Helix Lounge in Hotel Helix downtown.
Helix Lounge serves wine and champagne by the glass or bottle and deals in cocktailery with a refreshing roster of "Helixers." The Pajama Party ($9), Helix Lounge's signature martini, mixes raspberry vodka with lime juice, Sprite, and champagne. Or cross-pollinate your taste buds with the Curious Bee, a refreshing botanical blend of Hendrick's Gin, St-Germain, fresh lemon, and a touch of honey ($9). Lounge lizards can loaf on plush chairs and soak up evolving mood lighting or repose on the outdoor patio catching remnants of moonbeams.
Helix Lounge’s chef Stafford Mather digs into the DNA of American dining to fashion a helicoid of homegrown favorites. Commence a march through the menu with Captain Stubing's shrimp cocktail ($10) or fried Chesapeake oysters ($11). Then wash down starters with the half-pound British Bulldog burger ($14), topped with sautéed onions, mushrooms, and blue cheese, and served with choice of waffle fries or greens. Other sandwiches include the Cadillac grilled cheese ($9) and the open-faced Hot Brown turkey sandwich ($12). Guests long to see a showdown between crustacean, pig, and dairy cow can opt for the shrimp-and-bacon mac 'n' cheese ($12), while the TV Dinner ($18) unleashes grilled organic chicken with mashed potatoes and carrots on honeymooners and American bandstanders.
