DC is full of status snobs. Find the right guy who has confidence to use a GroupOn and keep him :)

Make it part of the pretext for asking for the date: "Hey, I've got this Groupon for this great new place--want to go with me?"

I think it's one of those things that if a person didn't like their date would share with their friends afterward - but if they liked everything else about the person, wouldn't care at all.

Or maybe I'm just naive.
