Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza is more adept at being edible than being wall art. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and more at the Mellow Mushroom in Murfreesboro.
Unlike unmellow mushrooms that make you take hour-long showers and nag you for tracking mud in the house, the Mellow Mushroom makes pizzas. The joint specializes in surrounding your dining experience with a dazzling atmosphere, artwork oozing with pizzazz, crisp bottles of happy beers, and the kinds of pizzas that got all the best solos at the fifth-grade choir demonstration. Sip on a cold draft of beer while ogling the Mushroom’s spread of Kosmic Karma pies that merge sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, feta, fresh tomatoes, and pesto ($10.99 for a 10’’); gourmet white pizzas with the harmonious offerings of olive oil and garlic, sunny-dried tomatoes, provolone, mozzarella, feta, and onions ($11.99 for a 10"); and the Magical Mystery Tour, brining pesto, portobello and button mushrooms, spinach, feta, and jalapenos back together for a reunion jam in your mouth ($10.99 for a 10").
Prove to your family and family physician that there’s still something in this world alluring enough draw you out of your stromboli-marinara bed. The time you spend patiently waiting for your piping pizzas can be passed by sharing a half order of garlic and parmesan or cinnamon-honey pretzels ($4.99 for a half order), among other craveable munchies such as The Brutus salad ($8.99).
