You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of San Diego: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (25 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
With today's Groupon, you can enjoy delicious food from local fisheries and environmentally sustainable producers at Sea Rocket Bistro in North Park. Open for dinner every night starting at 5 p.m., Sea Rocket offers fresh seafood and a wide selection of local beers and California wines to complement any meal, birthday party, or your acquisition of issue 129 of The Amazing Spider-Man.
Named for a variety of wild arugula that grows on the city's beaches, Sea Rocket serves a menu that changes with the seasons and the local ingredients available. Try the sea urchin bisque served in a spiky purple sea-urchin shell or the fish carpaccio served with lemon, olive oil, salt, and greens. If you're not culinary-adventurous but want something just as delicious as sea urchin, get the ten buck tuna melt or lamburger served on ciabatta bread. Vegetarians can dig into the fettucine primavera or the beet and goat-cheese tart (made with even parts beet, goat cheese, and tart). If you want something smaller, check out the tapas menu.
