According to a recent study, attempts to sing with one's mouth full are the number-one cause of choking and dates storming off in clothing ruined by half-digested cheeseburger chunks. Today's Groupon lets you both eat and sing in the recommended order: for $25, you get $50 worth of seasonally inspired fare and drinks at Paradise Piano Bar and Restaurant in Long Beach. This deal is not valid for the happy-hour menu or other special pricing.
Paradise shakes together a vivacious vibe, live music, a seasonally inspired menu, and specialty drinks into a fun-feast every day of the week. As a professional ivory-tickler keeps the air filled with sing-alongable tunes, you'll be free to sample Paradise's popular mac 'n' cheese balls ($8) or a variety of pizzas ($7–$8), paninis ($11–$14), and seafood entrees, such as the pan-roasted salmon ($21) bathed in a sweet coconut-curry cream sauce. Along the way, lubricate any creaky conversations with notable libations and a variety of martinis, including the X-Rated Martini ($10)—made with X-Rated liquor, G-rated soda water, and a splash of Chambord with a lemon twist. You can also order wine by the glass ($5+), by the bottle ($21+) or, in the case of Coppola's Sofia ($6), by the can.
Paradise's theme parties throughout the week extend the party personality of the weekends well into the weekmiddles. Tanked Tuesdays afford an opportunity to wear a sleeveless shirt and enjoy the restaurant's baja menu, including legendary $6 tacos filled with seasoned chicken, pork, beef, or crispy white fish. On Fridays, the bar's big screen showcases movies at noon and 3 p.m. with plenty of drinks doled out by bartender David. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, cure the brunchie munchies with steak and eggs ($13), a grilled 6 oz. sirloin with three eggs any style, hash browns, and toast, or the smoked-salmon benedict ($12). DIYers, meanwhile, can don their hardhat and leather tool belt of vegetable peelers to construct an omelette of their own mastery with three eggs and any three meat or veggie options and one of four cheeses. Though the bar's clientele leans gay-ward, everyone will feel like they belong in Paradise Piano Bar's all-inclusive atmosphere, so treat your champion karaoke team to a celebratory dinner with today's Groupon.
