UPTOWN—Get in on a good Groupon: Today's featured restaurant is modern Indian joint Marigold. Enjoy a three-course prix-fixe dinner for two for just $22 (normally $55). You can buy up to three Groupons and if you go with two other couples, you can use two Groupons at the table. Sucks to be that third couple. [Groupon]

DOWNTOWN—Fight off the sudden blast of wintry chill at Henri while sipping their newest cocktail, the Mexican Derby. A riff on a horchata, a traditional Mexican rice beverage. This one, happily, is spiked. The $12 cocktail is made with cinnamon-scented rice water that is blended with
Maker's Mark bourbon, Carpano Antica vermouth, egg whites and molasses-flavored
Bittercube Blackstrap bitters. Can you say bring on the cold? [EaterWire]

PRINTER'S ROWCustom House Tavern wants to get you drunk ... for cheap. On Dec. 4, the anniversary of the repealing of the 18th Amendment, a.k.a. Prohibition, the restaurant will offer a trio of classic cocktails—the Dorflinger, Vieux Caree and Bolo Cocktail—for just $5 each. And chef Perry Hendrix will serve tasty bites, like duck terrine and bacon caramel corn, to ensure you don't fall off your stool too quickly. [EaterWire]
