Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of barbecue, American, and Italian fare at Sauceman's in historic South End.
Engineered with locally acquired ingredients, the dishes on the menu at Sauceman's enumerate a catalog of tasty barbecue, specialty burgers, and flavorful pizza. Bite into a sandwich interlaced with thinly sliced beef and woven into a river of barbecue sauce ($6.25 for small, $7.75 for regular) or dine on the Hungry Man's Good Deal, which binds a half-pound of charbroiled burger with melted american cheese on a kaiser-bun foundation and, despite its misleading title, can be enjoyed by women and boys who are not legally men yet ($7.95).
The breaded pork tenderloin fuses a deep-fried plethora of pork with bready goodness on a kaiser bun ($7), and the cavatelli pasta houses a mélange of penne regatta and rotini noodles under a scrumptious canopy of marinara sauce and melted mozzarella ($5.75 for small, $7.75 for regular). The 13-inch white pizza, a whirlwind of provolone and sliced tomatoes under garlic and olive oil ($11.65), can be used to trace circles on the pavement to simulate the scene of a crime involving a man with a volleyball head.
