One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half right with today's Groupon to the Stars Restaurant and Lounge. Choose from three options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of new American cuisine and cocktails
- For $8, you get an adult seating for the Thanksgiving buffet ($17.95 value)
- For $5, you get a child's (12 and under) seating at the Thanksgiving buffet ($10.95 value)
Located on the top floor of Crowne Plaza downtown on East Fifth Street, Stars nourishes sight appetites with panoramic views of the city and dazzles taste buds with a multifarious menu of new American cuisine and crafty cocktails. Dishes knock top hats and monocles off cultured palates with flavor waves created by grilled shrimp caprese salads bolstered by buffalo mozzarella and vine-ripened tomatoes ($13) and tooth treating bites of seared NY strip with spinach and crispy red skin potatoes ($22). Enjoy the $25 for $50 Groupon anytime, or free up time for stressless parade watching by bringing the family to the Thanksgiving buffet, with seatings at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. Load plates with professionally carved turkey, sweet potatoes with toasted-spice walnuts, and never-canned cranberry and sweet red onion relish, then return home to the unequaled bliss of a kitchen packed with unsullied pots and flatware.

- High atop the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Dayton sits Stars Lounge, undoubtedly one of the best spots to enjoy a nighttime view of the city, live music, cocktails and a sampling or two from the appetizer or desert menu. – Craig Shrolucke and Alexis Larson, ActiveDayton.com
