Ship Canal Grill offering $12 for $25 worth of Food and Drink via LivingSocial Ending Soon

Usually I think it’s probably quite tacky to post coupon or deals on a forum but I figured this is a local restaurant and folks may want to try to support local businesses. A coupon definitely helps sweeten the deal when trying to contribute our local neighborhood economy.

So here it is. LivingSocial is offering for the next 2 days a $12 for $25 coupon good for food and drink at Ship Canal Grill. For those of you that don’t know, Ship Canal Grill occupies what used to be Kristos at the north end of Eastlake Ave. Reviews on Yelp have been positive and can be found here.
