Without proper nourishment, table-tennis players are prone to errors, losses, and, in certain cases, hunger. Stave off a defeated stomach with today's Groupon. For $7, you get $15 worth of eats and thirstquenchers at SPiN Milwaukee, located in the historic Third Ward. Making table-tops feel special, the recently opened SPiN Milwaukee offers 13 table-tennis courts, complete with Olympic-quality flooring, as well as a casual bar, lounge, and restaurant where sphere-clobberers can whet their whistle and re-energize. The menu brims with nutrient-packed edibles, such as strawberry salad ($9) with toasted almonds and shortcake croutons and the crispy BLT ($10), concocted with savory pancetta meat in a cherry tomato marinade. No matter the time or day, guests at SPiN will have no trouble grabbing a game, a bite, and the attention of Olympic scouts who had originally shown up for the elegant décor.
