The Morning Roundup 9/18/2012

Welcome back to the roundup, and Happy New Year to all my friends in the tribe. We were out yesterday eating matzo ball soup and apples and honey until we couldn’t eat anymore. But we’re back and we have deal (yes I know, you read that right).

Must Buy: Who doesn’t love smoothies? They’re delicious, filling, and won’t kill you. Today’s Groupon for $5 for $10 to Jamba Juice is good to go. You have three locations to choose from with this one so wherever you are in the city should be within a not terrible distance from smoothie goodness.

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).

Welcome back to Monday. We apologize for taking Friday off, but the deals just weren’t there. So we turn the page and enter the last week of August. Scary. Football season is inching ever closer.

Must Buy: There is rarely a really good sushi deal. Often you’ll get a “lounge” type deal to a place that serves mediocre sushi. Or the bargain just won’t be there. Today’s LivingSocial for $20 for $40 at Sushiko (2309 Wisconsin Ave.,NW) is both a good bargain (for sushi) and has some tasty food.

The Morning Roundup 8/23/2012

Welcome to Thursday. We are now officially less than two weeks from football season. Can you feel it? Let’s get to it.


Must Buy:
Yesterday Groupon had a late deal that I want to tell you about. It’s very similar to a deal we ran a few months ago, so I’m going to mostly plagiarize myself. I’m a big fan of a prix fixe menu. I often am overwhelmed by choices, and restauranteurs generally know what’s best on the menu. This menus, however, can often be expensive. Today’s LivingSocial Groupon deal is anything but.

Welcome to the middle of the week. Nothing much to say about it that any other Wednesday. So… to the deals!


Scoutmob:
I am not H Street Correspondent Evan Chiacchiaro. However, I do enjoy a good burger. Today’s Scoutmob to The Big Board (421 H St., NE) screams Must Buy. It excludes Happy Hour (as is often the case), but does have a lot to offer deal wise. The burgers are serious stuff. $10 discount will get you two burgers easily. The drinks are not crazy expensive so you won’t break the bank here.

AND WE’RE BACK! After a week off, I’m back in action and ready to eat. You’ll hear all about my adventures in Iceland later this week. But first we want to get your week started off right with a few deals.

Must Buy: The Capitol Deal always intrigues me. They often have pretty interesting combination deals, and today is no different. Today they’re offering $22 for an entree and wine flight at Station 4 (1101 4th St., SW). This means three glasses (or tastes as is usually the case) and an entree for $22.

Happy Friday. Today’s my last day before vacation. You’ll hear some dispatches from my adventures in the coming week. But for now let’s part ways with some deals to tide you over. I’m going out on a high note with two Must Buys.

Must Buy: In a city not known for it’s pizza there’s a few places that have good deals and pretty good pizza. We’ve written about a few of them before, but today’s LivingSocial deal is for $14 for $30 to Flippin’ Pizza (1745 Connecticut Ave., NW).

Happy Wednesday. It’s only three more days until the weekend. You can do it!

Must Buy: I’ve never had food from New Zealand. I know they eat a lot of lamb, but beyond that I’m at a loss. So that’s partly why today’s Scoutmob to Cassatt’s Kiwi Cafe & Gallery (4536 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA) is so intriguing. With a max discount of $10 at lunch or $15 at dinner you’re going to get a good amount of food, a lot of which looks mighty tasty.

Avoid: A lot of times you’ll see restaurants featured on multiple deal sites.

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a great birthday weekend, thanks for asking. Let’s get back into it. We have a few deals, but unfortunately they have some issues.

Must Buy: I love Chinese food. I especially love discounted good Chinese food. Today’s Google Offer of $15 for $30 at Fusion Grill definitely is discounted, and by the looks of it pretty good. You’re going to get a lot of food for your money here, which is what you want.

Fifty-Fifty: Today’s LivingSocial to Teak Wood (1323 14th St., NW) falls under the classic category of good restaurant, weak savings.
