Few 19th-century mansions still remain, as rain, hail, and hungry hordes of children regularly descend upon their candy-coated surfaces. Take in an old home’s sweet sights and refreshing bites with today's Groupon to: for $14, you get two cocktails and an appetizer at the Juicy Olive Lounge, located inside Golden Oaks Mansion in Lake Geneva (up to a $28.95 value).
Built in 1856, Golden Oaks Mansion houses a grand staircase that delivers guests from boutique inn rooms to the Juicy Olive Lounge, where a friendly staff doles out a menu of specialty drinks and tasty bites. Settle down at the bar to graze stuffed mushrooms (a $8.95 value) or a shrimp cocktail (a $8.95 value) and woo a host of decadent cocktails, such as the Creamy Tea-ni, a chai-infused orange vodka and cream martini (a $9 value), or the 1856 Cosmo (a $9 value), served on a napkin-shaped time machine. A green-apple martini (a $9 value) serves to fuel nibblers as their pita chips comb the artichoke and spinach dip (a $7.95 value) in search of famed secret gardens.
