Not sure what you're getting yourself into? Here's the description from the e-mail blast:
A glowing blue sign above the front doors welcomes diners into a huge, swanky restaurant and sports bar with a gargantuan menu and beer list to match. The Icehouse menu mingles Far East fare and south-of-the-border savories with a sprinkle of American tastes to glue it all together. Start off with the slow-smoked hot-chili-garlic grilled wings ($5 half dozen, $10 dozen) or the Thai beef salad, a bounty of shaved cabbage, soba noodles, carrots, cucumbers, and sesame-ginger dressing ($12). Fulfill your dark desires with the blackened pepper-jack burger ($9 small, $12 large), which you can scotch tape to a cup of chili. Seafarers can sample a catch of oven-roasted rainbow trout ($12-$16) with smoked-tomato succotash and sweet-potato fritters, while pig-farers can nosh a savory smoked- and pulled-pork quesadilla, topped with cheddar jack, caramelized onions, fire-roasted salsa, and sour cream ($9).
Your Groupon is also good for drinks, which you can guzzle in modern sporty style among pool tables and two floors of hi-def TVs while a translucent roof shines rays upon the noggin of your unsuspecting neighbor. Icehouse's beer-slinging bartenders pour a dazzling array of more than 200 brews, including local suds such as the Big Boss Blanco Diablo on draft ($4.50) and the Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale in a bottle ($4). Or expand your beer horizons with a Japanese Kirin Ichiban ($4). Icehouse also features a massive outdoor patio for those tired of the monotony of indoor weather patterns.
What a great way to try out a new spot on the cheap!
