Much like silent-film theaters and do-it-yourself dental schools, butcher shops remain a quintessential part of the American neighborhood. Taste the tradition of take-home meat with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of premium meats at The Meat House, with locations in Albany, Saratoga Springs, and Clifton Park.
The Meat House strives for community involvement by promoting local events and charities and serves up a selection of organic, all-natural, grass-fed meats to calm carnivorous cravings. Meat options include freshly butchered beef, lamb from the Midwest, Virginia-bred pork, and exotic meats such as buffalo, alligator, and ostrich—or as it's more commonly known, the megachicken. Customers can run up meatometers with marinated steak tips ($19.98 for 2 lb.), and poultrygeists can enjoy the clucking curse of lemon-and-pepper chicken breast ($11.98 for 2 lb.). The Meat House's premium proteins are dressed with signature marinades, using a process first conceptualized by a team of synchronized-swimming bovines.
