$5 for $10 Worth of Gourmet Soups, Sandwiches, and Salads at San Francisco Soup Company

Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to organic romaine lettuce. Get a sailor's worth of energizing fresh produce with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of entree salads and gourmet soups at San Francisco Soup Company. Click here for valid locations.

San Francisco Soup Company’s menu floods appetite ravines with signature soups, sandwiches, and entree salads crafted with an eye toward sustainability and seasonality. Sharpen leaf-shredding teeth on the organic greens found amid the grilled-chicken chipotle salad’s heap of roasted corn, jicama, black beans, avocado, and blue-corn tortilla chips ($8.95) or the leprechaun-taunting rainbow salad’s layers of candied walnuts, roasted beets, and crumbled blue cheese ($6.99). Spoons willingly capsize into the noodle-strewn sea of Grandma Mary’s old-fashioned chicken soup or slip into the vegetarian depths of split pea soup ($4.84–$5.30). Straddle the great divide between handheld fare and flatware-assisted eats with a combo meal ($6.91) that pairs soups with sandwiches, such as the havarti-blanketed roast beef on a dutch crunch roll.

San Francisco Soup Company also gets the day started with morning tastes, from fresh-fruit yogurt parfaits to organic steel-cut oatmeal. The eco-friendly eatery prides itself on sustainability, filling its soup cauldrons with locally sourced ingredients and fresh, organic produce. The family-owned restaurant stays true to its values with practices such as food-scrap composting and using biodegradable takeout packaging (made from potatoes, corn, and sugar cane).

$80 for a Custom Detail at AJ Auto Detailing ($160 Value)

$80 for a Custom Detail at AJ Auto Detailing ($160 Value)

Unlike cats and germaphobes, automobiles need to be reminded to wash themselves. Drop a blatant hint to your lazy ride with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a custom detail on a regular-size vehicle at AJ Auto Detailing on Coleman Avenue (a $160 value).

Treat your auto to some pampering and upkeep with a custom detailing that includes a hand wash, clay bar treatment, two coats of high-tech carnauba wax, and a mini detailing of the car's interior. This carriage-coddling package is listed as the High-Tech Carnauba Wax (Includes Clay Bar) service on AJ Auto Detailing's website.

First, tires, wheels, and fender wells are cleaned before a careful hand wash employs a purified-water system and slew of wash shampoos to remove all traces of dirt and Jello residue. The car is then blow-dried with controlled air pressure and hand-dried with soft, clean, nonscratching chamois. Next, the doorjambs and moldings get shown a little love while the tires get dressed and the windows are squeegeed and cleaned. A clay bar, a hand-applied product, then safely removes bonded surface contaminants such as road grime, industrial and nuclear fallout, tree sap, and bug residue from the paint's finish.

After the vehicle cleaning, AJ Auto Detailing applies two coats of hi-tech carnauba wax, leaving the car with an intense luster and shine. A mini detailing of your ride's interior follows, granting auto innards a thorough vacuuming and wipe clean, followed by a meticulous dusting of the visors, gauges, dashboard, and instrument panels.

Freshly beautified buggies are also treated with an antistatic spray to enhance their glow and repel dust. In all, the process takes about an hour and 15 minutes, leaving you plenty of free time for errands and keeping tabs on the most recent Beanie Baby valuations.

This Groupon is not valid for super cars worth more than $100,000 and classic cars made before 1970. Paint on cars must also have luster.

$24 for $50 Worth of Women's Shoes from Chinese Laundry

Without shoes, human feet would be forced to adapt, developing thick soles for protection and 6-inch heels to satisfy our innate need to tower over bears. Allay awkward foot evolution with today's Groupon: for $24, you get $50 worth of women's shoes from Chinese Laundry's online boutique.

Lauded by style magazines, Chinese Laundry’s array of footwear frames feet in styles ranging from elegant to everyday using eye-catching lines and innovative materials. Complement cocktail dresses by slipping toes into a choice of evening items, such as angelic, gold Willy Shimmer heels ($49.95), and dark and racy Haughty suede heels ($29.95) or wear one of each to engage gams in existential debates about good and evil. A range of daytime togs such as wedges ($29.99–$170), flats ($14.99–$89.95), and sandals ($14.95–$150) pair with jeans, shorts, and sundresses effortlessly, and sleek stiletto Faith boots ($59.95) drape legs in luxury while keeping out wind, rain, and subliminal messages instructing feet to do the mashed potato.

$10 for a Filipino-Mexican Fusion Meal for Two from Wow Silog Truck ($21 Value)

$10 for a Filipino-Mexican Fusion Meal for Two from Wow Silog Truck ($21 Value)

Food trucks offer a simple option for mobile mealtime, as diners can avoid the messy splatter of foodapults and the pureed sandwiches of large hadron colliders. Pass on flavorless God particles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a Filipino-Mexican fusion meal for two from Wow Silog Truck (a $21 value). Each meal includes:

  • Two silog-style burritos (a $7.50 value each)
  • Two banana fritters (a $1 value each)
  • Two specialty drinks (a $2 value each)


As part of this deal, Groupon customers may also receive a burrito, specialty drink, and fritter (a $10.50 total value) during their next vist, for an additional $4.

Featured most recently on 7x7, Wow Silog Truck freights freshly made traditional Filipino breakfasts from hotspot to hotspot in its signature ruby hauler. Wow's Bomb Burritos embrace silog fare in portable flour tortillas, easily smuggling locally sourced fillings of garlic fried rice and fried Niman ranch eggs into public libraries. Patrons chose their meat filling from five savory options including filipino-spiced pork sausage, thin slices of marinated beef, or spam brûléed in muscovado sugar. Special sauces add original zest to burritos with a mildly spicy red sauce and tomatillo-avocado salsa verde. Palates balance sweet and spicy with alternating bites of burrito and turon, a saba banana hand-rolled in muscavado sugar before pan-frying into crispy fritter form. The big red truck's eats can be washed down with guyabano, mango, and calamansi juice, as well as iced green tea and sarsi, southeast Asia's take on root beer. View Wow Silog Truck's schedule here or online, updated regularly to give patrons enough notice for daylong fasting in anticipation of its arrival.

$29 for Four Indoor Cycling Classes or Virtual Rides at Cycling Fusion Marin in Sausalito ($80 Value)

Riding a stationary bike combines the safety of a fitness center with the thrill of mountain biking, just as riding a stationary goat combines the safety of a petting zoo with the thrill of encountering a pack of hungry wolves. Get your adrenaline pumping with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get four indoor cycling classes or virtual rides at Cycling Fusion Marin in Sausalito (an $80 value).

The pedal professors of Cycling Fusion Marin lead a calorie-busting schedule of morning and evening stationary-bike excursions. In each 30- to 75-minute session, intrepid instructors or training videos lead groups of beginning to advanced students through intervals and drills to build cardiovascular health and muscle strength. Virtual rides, held every third Thursday, employ the studio's 103" HD screen to teleport exercisers to the trails of Italy or the coast of Hawaii, where they’ll spin and sweat before thumbing a return ride with a jumbo jet.

Students interested in tracking progress can purchase accessories to take advantage of Ride Journal, a web application that uploads useful statistics for future study. First-time riders are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early so their instructors can teach them how to fit their bikes to individual specifications and exorcise any ghostly spandex shorts haunting the seats.

Botox and Skin-Rejuvenation Treatments at Visage MedSpa and Facial Plastic Surgery Center. Three Options Available.

Botox and Skin-Rejuvenation Treatments at Visage MedSpa and Facial Plastic Surgery Center. Three Options Available.

From infancy, skin is tasked with protecting the body against summer’s heat, winter’s cold, and Grandmother’s pinch. Keep your outer layer looking awesome with today's Groupon to Visage MedSpa and Facial Plastic Surgery Center. Choose from the following options:

  • For $149, you get 20 units of Botox (up to a $300 value).
  • For $270, you get 20 units of Botox (up to a $300 value) and a Visage PRO Rx Face & Hands treatment (a $280 value; a $580 total value).
  • For $140, you get a Visage PRO Rx Face & Hands treatment (a $280 value).

At Visage MedSpa and Facial Plastic Surgery, the skilled hands of Dr. Alex Rabinovich and his staff administer facial treatments and Botox that enhance appearances and clear complexions. The 60-minute Visage PRO Rx Face & Hands treatment covers skin with a blend of products customized for individual skin types, using a sonic brush cleanse and multilayer peel to shake free dead skin cells and impurities before a face mask helps even skin tone. A gentle sonic brush cleanse relaxes hands as aestheticians train oxygen infusions onto faces, stimulating cell turnover to banish fine lines, uneven texture, and middle-school memories.

Twenty Botox injections relax tense muscles between eyebrows and around eyes, as well as forehead muscles tired of bench-pressing heavy bangs. The procedure takes about 10 minutes, and results can be seen in about two weeks. Alternatively, Botox can be injected into the underarms to curb excessive sweating during job interviews, first dates, and trippy Magic School Bus expeditions into your own armpit.

Visage MedSpa's urban décor matches its modern treatments. Sleek furnishings and an exposed-brick wall make for a comfortable but professional setting, which is also equipped with an outpatient surgical facility for cosmetic surgical procedures and monthly reenactments of syndicated hospital soap operas.

Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
