The Morning Roundup: 01/08/13

It’s good to be back! Here’s what we’ve got today.

Fifty-Fifty: Scoutmob’s $25 for $50 worth of Cuban food at Cubano’s is a pretty good deal.  The restaurant gets solid reviews from Yelpers and the Washington Post, and that $50 will cover dinner for two, although you’ll likely have to spend out of pocket to get drinks as well.  The downside? It’s up in Silver Spring, which isn’t the most appealing destination for most DC residents.  At only a 6 minute walk from the metro, though, this is still a viable option.

AND WE’RE BACK! We’ve heard your cries and our New Years Resolution is to get back to blogging. I know you’ve heard this from us before, but we have a plan and we’re back in business. Expect the Morning Roundup Monday-Friday and new features Tuesday-Thursday. This will keep us fresh and keep you entertained. We missed you all very much and we got a lot to talk about. For now let’s hit the roundup.

Must Buy: I’m going to break my rule about posting old deals. Because we’ve been off for so long I need to give you something special.

The Morning Roundup 10/03/2012

Lot’s to see here on this Wednesday. We got quite a few deals of all different qualities.

Must Buy: We like pizza. We like beer. Today’s Capitol Deal gives us both. $12 gets you a personal pizza and two beers at Pizza No. 17 (1523 17th St., NW). Even if the pizza isn’t the best in the city (it’s pretty good), this deal is made on the two beers. You can use multiple vouchers at one time so grab your friends and head on over.

Must Buy: When we lived in Tenleytown for a while our go-to for trivia was Union Jack’s in Bethesda (4915 Saint Elmo Ave., Bethesda).

The Morning Roundup 10/01/2012

Rabbit Rabbit and happy October! It’s a new month and fall is here. The Patriots cruised yesterday, so in return we got you a good deal to start off October right.

Must Buy: Living in the Upper NW (Tenleytown) for a year there were few places I didn’t try. Probably the one I didn’t get to that’s still pretty high on my list is also the recipient of today’s Scoutmob. Blue 44 Restaurant and Bar (5507 Connecticut Ave., NW) always held my appeal, but for some reason I never got around to it.

The Morning Roundup 9/25/2012

We’re back after a few days off. We’re still getting back in the swing of things after the move and the summer. Look for our new feature starting today! We got a few good deals to get you going after a stunning night in football.

Must Buy: Too often we get a bad Indian food deal. Today, we have a pretty good one for you. $20 for $40 from Groupon to Tandoori Nights (2800 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington). This deal will get you two entrees easy with room for an appetizer. With above average food, we’re looking at a nice deal.

One fantastic deal this morning!

Must-buy: Oh man. You know how we feel about El Pollo Sabroso. Today’s Scoutmob for $5 for $10 just makes a trip to their Columbia Heights location even better. Make sure you don’t miss this one!

The Morning Roundup 9/12/2012

Happy Wednesday y’all. The weather is still glorious so I hope you eat outside.

Must Buy (Foggy Bottom Only): Lunch is always a conundrum around my office. Where to eat? Am I sick of this place yet? Why do we keep going to the same three places? These are all questions that can plague you. When you get a good deal, however, it makes your decision easier. Today Google Offers brings you a deal for not one, but THREE lunch combos (sandwich, chips, drink) to Capitol Grounds Coffee (2100 Pennsylvania Ave. NW).

The Morning Roundup 9/10/12

Well hello there Monday. After yesterday’s glorious weather/football day, doesn’t going back to the grind just seem unfair? I know. I feel your pain. RG III was everything you’d hoped for, and my beloved Patriots looked like they may have found some defense. I hope you’re ready we got a lot in store.

Must Buy: I’m a big fan of Mexican food. Tacos are now all the rage. So now here comes The Capitol Deal with a tasty deal for 2 entrees and 2 margaritas for $25. The spot? Capital Hill’s own Mi Vecindad (1129 Pennsylvania Ave., SE).

The Morning Roundup 9/6/2012

A rainy Thursday. Your old pal Micah is hear to brighten up your day. We got a deal that I’m really excited about.

Must Buy: DC is possibly experiencing a Mexican revival. We Tacos El Chilango, the newly controversial Bandolero, and quite a few other good options. Today’s Scoutmob to Casa Oaxaca (2106 18th St., NW) is one of our patented no-brainers. Max discount of $20 is going to get you quite a bit of good food.

Must Buy: I love Kabob. With the platters at most places, you’re going to get so much food.

The Morning Roundup 09/04/12

How is everyone doing? It’s September, you’re back at work after a (hopefully) nice and relaxing weekend. We get it you’re not doing well. You’re nursing a weekend long hangover and you’re cursing the fact that you’re back at work. We understand where you’re coming from. We’re right there with you. We wish we had better deals to brighten your day, but alas we don’t.

Fifty-Fifty: Today’s Scoutmob to Sixth Engine (438 Massachusetts Ave., NW) is one of the classic good restaurant, so-so bargain.
