Yesterday, I paid my first visit to Springfield Butcher (in the strip mall with Trader Joe’s). I heard that this business (which has been in Springfield over 30 years) receives fresh seafood deliveries every day except Sunday, so purchased a $26 Groupon for $13, and headed to the shop. The certificate expires March 22, so you will have to use it relatively quickly. I purchased two crab cakes and some salmon, and both were very fresh and tasty. The crab cakes are of the type that contains filler (scallions, red bell peppers, and I’m assuming bread). It is nice to have good source of fresh seafood closer to me than the Springfield Wholefoods.
By the way, Groupon has a President’s Day deal that gives you $10 off of a $40 LOCAL certificate through tomorrow (2/17/14) with the code “10OFF40LOCAL” so I did a quick search to see if there are any good deals above $40. It turns out that they have a Cherry Blossom Dinner with Drinks or All-You-Can-Eat-and-Drink Brunch for Two or Four at Mezè in Adams Morgan for $49.
