The duelling glove was originally an invention of chefs who would slap turkeys with oven mitts and demand electric knives at dawn. Taste the edible creations of culinary innovators with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of alcohol-infused fare and cocktails at Sip Resto-Lounge on Granville Street.
A self-dubbed "resto-lounge," Sip fuses the best of both worlds as a classy, upscale eatery that transforms into a sleek urban nightspot after 10 p.m. Even the culinary creations are inspired by cocktail concoctions, as each dish on the menu is marinated, flambéed, drizzled, or smacked in the forehead with booze, including the SoCo spicy chicken ($11), a crispy chicken breast slathered with a Southern Comfort chili sauce. Guests who snag a seat at the open-kitchen bar are granted a front-row view of comestible courtship rituals, as various liquors, wines, and beers butt heads to win the hands of edible ingredients. Select a specialty cocktail from the drink menu and swallow some liquid courage before treating your date to your blues rendition of "My Heart Will Go On."
