The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they realize that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Taste the real thing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, pizzas, beers, and more at Lovin' Cup, located near the Rochester Institute of Technology. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only and cannot be used for other offers or specials (including specially priced events or theme menus).
Lovin' Cup coalesces the experience of tasting a pitch-perfect burger, drinking a harmonious microbrew, and listening to mouth-watering rock 'n' roll. Hungry head-bangers can peruse the popular-music-inspired menu for appetizers such as the "ooh baby olive your way" ($10.99), a baguette served with olive oil, artichoke hearts, and an artistic olive display. Lettuce crunchers will find plenty of veggies in the "rage against the green" salad ($8.49), with black beans, corn, and scallions tossed in a Mex-ranch dressing to enspice the flavor. Signature sandwiches include the "I'm hot for teacher" ($7.99), a grilled chicken panini served with a pesto mayo for dipping or pouring into the shape of Ms. Honey during English class, and the 8 oz. Angus beef "ring of fire" burger ($8.49), named to commemorate Johnny Cash and his ability to consume flaming donuts.
Fans of all music genres from blues to country-Nintendocore will appreciate Lovin' Cup's diverse crop of live shows throughout the week. Check out a regular Tuesday-night open mic, or drop by on Monday for battle-of-the-bands-style entertainment. Stay hydrated while moshing with a barley pop from Lovin' Cup's rotating assortment of frosty microbrews, or look for a caffeine buzz with one of its 18 gourmet coffee drinks, including the "karmal police" ($3.35), an espresso and milk drink concoction with fresh caramel.
Lovin’ Cup’s owners had a dream of creating a place that celebrates life’s pleasures and offers the unique and personal experience each of their customers seeks. And to achieve that dream, it took the combined efforts of all five owners to truly fill Lovin' Cup to the brim, each one specializing in a different area of the culinary arts or entertainment. The crew started with a simple, delicious menu of familiar eats made right, such as Angus beef burgers, gourmet pizzas, and hearty sandwiches. They paired these, with an array of craft beers on tap – plus more than 50 varieties in bottles – and a carefully curated list of international wines.
To entertain the brain's higher functions, they host game nights every Monday, open mic performances every Tuesday, and live music of every genre on Thursdays. Performances rotate between jazz, alt-country, indie, and rock groups as often as they change out their drafts on tap and, presumably, their socks. And finally, the owners paid similarly close attention to the artistic décor of their space, from the polished wood of their wine racks and tables to the mutable collection of art that peppers the walls.
