What You'll Get

If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Polycephalify your palate with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican food with a Californian twist and drinks at The Creek and The Cave, one block northeast of the Vernon-Jackson 7 in Long Island City.

The Creek and The Cave's menu offers burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and other classic Mexican eats stuffed with fresh California flavors. Take a tiny hop to the opposite coast with a Baja quesadilla (goat cheese, avocado, and jalapeños, $6.95) or golden-fried flautas (pulled chicken and cheddar jack with pico de gallo and sour cream, $4.95). Then bound without abandon into the Pacific with a seafood taco with grilled or beer-battered shrimp or fish and cabbage salsa ($3.95) or its larger cousin, the seafood burrito ($9.95). Add one of The Creek and The Cave’s signature sauces such as chipotle mayo or mole for $0.95 and a four-ounce serving of homemade guacamole for $2.95 to complete your tongue's callisthenic taste routine. You can also use your Groupon toward The Creek and The Cave’s expansive brunch or happy hour.

The Creek and The Cave is a laid-back eatery with clean white walls, bright bubbly lights, and simple bare-brick walls that can’t weep. It boasts an outdoor patio as well as a stage for hosting deliciously free events. Improv and standup comedy by groups including Casual Sex Offenders happen several times a week, as do films and theatrical productions such as musical Jaws (check the calendar to see upcoming events). Users of the mobile app Foursquare can get a shot at creating a flashmob and earning a swarm badge at The Creek and The Cave’s 7 p.m. party on Wednesday, June 2.
