Scoutmob Giveaway: $100 to Spend at Weird Fish!

I mean, all fish are weird when you think about it. One of the first things I do after I wake up in the morning (or afternoon) is check my inbox for those daily deal coupon offers.  More often than not, though, I’m like, dude, I don’t WANT a Brazilian

All-You-Can-Eat Wing Wednesdays at Double Decker

FREE Appetizers at Sugar Lounge

I discovered Sugar Lounge after they turned me down for a bartending job, which was my first indication that these people know what’s up because I was grossly under-qualified for that position. This place is probably the best happy hour spot I’ve found in the city. They have $3 beers
