Vodka’s resemblance to water has led to countless mix-ups, resulting in clean but wobbly-kneed jeans, delicious bubble baths, and surly houseplants. Give a burst of life to tongue greenery with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bar fare and drinks at Red Square Vodka House, located on 82 Avenue. Red Square brings a sophisticated, fur-lined vibe to downtown Edmonton, with a menu of Russian-inflected bar-fare mainstays. The vodka penne with a choice of tiger shrimp, chicken, or kubasa in homemade vodka-tomato sauce ($16), is a stern-but-loving vanquisher of hunger and imperial tyranny. The chicken Kiev, a breaded chicken breast stuffed with garlic and herbs and served with a Russian side salad ($10), causes patrons to tear their iron curtains asunder in exultation. A host of flat-screen TVs broadcasts a deluge of games as you crown yourself czar of nightlife with a selection from the bar, which boasts a bevy of domestic, imported, and extraterrestrial pours (prices translated into Earthspeak upon request).
