The Morning Roundup

The Morning Roundup 6/18/2012

What a lovely Monday we have on our hands! After a wonderful weather weekend (that I hope you spent outside grilling) we’re back in action. We have a lot of good things coming your way this week here on ETD. We’ll start off the day with a few good deals and a few non-traditional deals.

Must Buy: If you love pig, then we have a very fascinating deal for you this morning. The Capitol Deal is offering a number of interesting packages from the Pig of the Month club. With a number of packages to choose from (all at great prices) you can really spice up your summer BBQ with great meat.

Sticky Rice: Millenium +12

We here at Eat The District talk about sushi a lot. I have a small theory as to the nature of not only our personal infatuations with this cuisine, but with our love of sushi as a community; not just as a metropolitan community, not as an American community, but as a global community. The reason that we, as a race, love sushi is because when it is done right, it is arguably some of the best food on planet Earth. Sushi is a testament to simplicity and how far we can go with just fresh ingredients. Put simply sushi rocks.

MMMMM...

Flying Fish: Pleasantly Confused

A sushi bistro speakeasy? Who is that bartender in suspenders and a bow tie hanging near the sushi chefs?  Is that Karaoke I hear starting.  These are just some of the questions you will have upon your arrival at Flying Fish in Alexandria.  This place is confusing.  Perhaps you would say that it is ‘confused’, that this restaurant isn’t quite sure what it wants to be.  It throws your mind into a bit of a jumble.  The dissonance of restaurant genre is disconcerting.  But after my visit, I walked out thinking mostly, that I had just had some of the most interesting maki rolls that I have ever tried.

The Morning Roundup 5/22/2012

Welcome back. You survived Monday, give yourself a pat on the back. The weather is looking pretty gross once again. The deals? A little better.

Must Buy: Scoutmob’s 50% at RedRocks Pizzeria (1036 Park Rd., NW) is a typical no brainer from Scoutmob. Good food, not overly expensive, and no committment to buy make the Columbia Heights spot a slam dunk. Good pizza with a good beer selection sounds like a recipe for a great night out. The food is a little pricey, and you’re only getting $12 off but we still say yeah to this one.

Not a good end to the week for deals.  Here’s today’s one big no-no.

Avoid:  Unless you’re eating at Oh Fish! once a week, there’s no reason to buy the Capitol Deal’s sushi punch card.  Avoid this gimmicky offer and spend that $5 on lunch somewhere else.

Well, that’s all we’ve got this week at Eat the District.  Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you on Monday!

$1 Sushi Happy Hour

Sushi doesn’t exactly scream cheap eats. In fact, there’s something a little bit frightening about eating inexpensive raw fish – it raises far too many questions in my head, at least. Why is this so cheap? Is it old? Is it low-quality? Do I really want to be eating bargain raw fish? It doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. When you’re eating sushi you’re willing to pay more to know it’s good, and a night at a sushi place typically turns into an expensive affair.

Welcome to The Morning Roundup

Good morning readers. Welcome to our first ever morning roundup. Evan explained it to you yesterday in his introductory post, but I’ll repeat for those of you that didn’t read it (shame on you!) or need a refresher. Every morning we’re going to attempt to make sense of the all the daily deals that flood your inbox. The notable deals (we won’t flood you with every single food deal on offer) will be labelled with Must-Buy, Fifty-Fifty, and Avoid. The sites we’ll focus on (because we have to draw the line somewhere) are: LivingSocial, Groupon, Scoutmob, Google Offers, and The Capitol Deal.
