I went to the one downtown. I read an interesting article in the NY times about the founder of Groupon and they mentioned ``Companies have been overwhelmed or even destroyed by running a Groupon special``.
That got me thinking about what Derfster said, and I seem to recall that Metropolitan Grill sold over 700 groupons. If it`s true they have to give $30,000 worth of food for $7,000. They`re a pretty big outfit, I`m sure they can handle it but I`m not sure that the numbers would work for smaller businesses. So if I had another groupon I would use it fairly promptly.
