Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare for dinner at Piper’s Alley in Clinton Township.
At Piper’s Alley, a diverse menu brims with comfort food made from scratch daily to complement nearly 40 beers from Michigan breweries and from around the globe. Appetizers such as pan-seared saganaki, made from either greek kasseri cheese ($7.49) or spicy pepper jack ($6.49), kick off meals as sports events kick off on the bar’s 50-inch high-definition TVs. Lounging amid wood-paneled walls and salivating plants, patrons slice into 18-ounce rib eye steaks ($19.99) or fajitas made with marinated chicken and bell peppers ($10.99). The Alley burger ($8.99) emerges from the kitchen to the sound of heraldic trumpets, its half-pound patty slathered with marinara and guacamole under parapets of cheese and applewood-smoked bacon.
Beers from Dragonmead to Stella Artois flow from Piper’s Alley’s taps, and patrons breathe in fresh air on the patio or enjoy entertainment events such as Trivia Tuesdays and live-music Thursdays, when DJs spin the latest dance music and juggle vintage chainsaws. The kitchen keeps its ovens on from 3 p.m. to midnight every day of the week.
