The raw, foot-stomping power of a tantrum is responsible for the creation of many wonders, such as mashed potatoes and wine. Enjoy the tasty aftereffects of an angry rant with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wine and American cuisine at The Wine Cafe in Mankato.
The wine gurus at The Wine Cafe instill their deep love of the grape-fermented drink in others with a long-winded wine list and a tastefully matching menu. While slurping down a glass of Woop Woop's Australian chardonnay ($6), diners can snack on deluxe sandwiches such as the salami-stuffed and tapenade-topped Italian ($6.50–$8.50), or accompany a build-your-own pizza ($11) with 16 available garnishes and Gnarly Head's California zinfandel ($6/glass). Chunks of grilled bread and kalamata olives swim in a tasty pool of mediterranean spinach and artichoke dip ($8.95), but only because all the other pools are closed for the summer. For dessert, save wear and tear on your teeth by ordering a banana cream cheesecake ($3.50) and imagining how good it must taste while sipping Casillero del Diablo's merlot ($7) or a beer.
Diners nosh in a fantastical setting with vine-draped ceilings inside a multihued rustic wonderland, and each cozy table offers a wonderful setting for two or an extremely intimate setting for 26. Live music and karaoke fills the string-lit halls of The Wine Cafe every Friday and Saturday.
