Gobble appetizing atoms with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eclectic bar fare and drinks at The Hornet. Today's deal is not valid during happy hour (3 p.m.–6 p.m. daily, and 11 p.m.–close Monday–Saturday).
The Hornet’s kitchen, open until midnight daily, romances taste buds with its eclectic menu of sandwiches, brunch fare, and drinks. Inspired by years of deep-sea can-can dancing, the Aloha ahi tuna burger ($13) greets visitors with a double kiss of lemon-cayenne aioli and spicy wasabi dressing. Fish-'n'-chips' flaky fillets bask in Guinness batter before flipping onto guests' plates ($11), and honey-stung fried chicken ($12) sweet-talks its way into diners' mouths with its crispy repartee. The brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays encourages diners to enjoy double bills of bourbon-banana french toast ($10) and egg-and-bacon Broadway breakfast ($10).
The Hornet's sprawling space, live weekend music, and full bar stocked with top-shelf spirits have earned rave reviews from Westword's resident nightlife assessors. Guests can plan future Mexican getaways as they sip mayan mojitos filled with strawberries and mint ($9) or time-travel to 1940s New York without using time-traveling suspenders as they imbibe brooklyn cocktails of ginger-apple vodka and cran-apple juice ($7.50).
