With the return of spring comes the return of spacebird humans who left earth for the harsh winter months. Today's Groupon gives migratory cosmonauts a chance to revisit their wintery retreat year-round. For $10, you get $20 worth of eats and drinks at the Space Room Lounge on Hawthorne Boulevard.
Blast off the cosmic journey with an order of Pluto's potato skins ($5) topped with bacon, salsa, sour cream, and cheddar, or dip into the heart-healthy hummus plate served with pita chips and celery ($4.75). In dedication the perpetual nighttime of outer space, the Space Room's menu celebrates that elusive earthly phenomenon known as "morning," with hearty breakfast items served all day. Top off an evening at the theater with the chicken fried steak served with eggs, toast, and either hash browns or home fries ($8.00), or marvel at your dining companion's dangerously adorable UFS (unidentified flying sliders—either pulled pork or cheeseburger served on ciabatta buns, $6.75). A pulled-pork burrito ($6.75), "paranormal" mac 'n' cheese ($7), and deli classics such as a French dip ($7.25) and corned beef and sauerkraut reuben ($7.25) please grub-hungry bellies, while the Space Room's full bar shakes it up with specialty cocktails like the Purple Alien (muddled lemons, grape vodka, grape juice, and 7-Up in a fish bowl, $6.75) and the Dirty Cowgirl (whiskey and butterscotch schnapps, $6).
Dine under black lighting as glass-entombed aliens preside over the meal, or read up on the history of space travel and UFO spottings in the ancient newspapers pressed under the glass table-tops. The dining room, which closes at 7 p.m. for minors, serves food until 1 a.m. Invite your friends for a trip to the Space Room for a heaping serving of late-night grub and celebration of mankind's recent peace treaty with the moon.
