Eating out at a restaurant enables people to avoid cooking for hours at home, washing dishes, and rubbing their own feet during meals. Relax at dinner with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Chinese cuisine and cocktails at Lao Shanghai.

Award-winning Lao Shanghai's menu overflows with authentic Chinese cuisine created from seafood, duck, beef, vegetables, and noodles. Patrons can bounce their forks on top of Shanghai-style jellyfish ($6.50) before diving into Chef Tony's specialty dishes, such as whole shrimp sautéed in a brown sauce ($11.95). The dry chili spare ribs ($10.50) and hot bean sauce drizzled over twice-cooked pork ($9.50) are spicy enough to cook an egg on your tongue. The restaurant's shiny gold walls provide an ideal backdrop for salt and pepper bean curds ($8.50) to perform plays such as A Christmas Carol for audiences of salt and pepper shakers. Cool off belly motors with a Tsingtao beer ($4.25), a banana freeze smoothie ($3.75), or a kiss from Mr. Freeze.
