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 $5, you get $10 worth of bar and grill fare at The Longbranch Saloon.
The Longbranch Saloon lures revelers with a laid-back neighborhood atmosphere and anchors them in place by filling their stomachs with a cadre of comfort sandwiches and fried finger foods. The sourdough steak-burger's ($7) half-pound sirloin patty arrives charbroiled with an entourage of veggies, prepared to entertain an audience of screaming taste buds. As four big-screen TVs broadcast big-time sporting events and vizsla puppy cams, patrons chomp on beef-brisket sandwich baskets ($4) and extra-large buffalo wings ($7 large) slathered in chipotle, boneless, or inferno sauce. After dinner or in between bites, diners can transform into pool sharks by playing a friendly match of nine-ball or hustling a clone on one of Longbranch's pool tables.
