Groupon Meh

The Pearl's organic Chinese restaurant Seres is so not having it when it comes to working with Groupon: "After finding out that not only does Groupon take 50% of total sales plus bank charges, we won’t receive full payment for 30 days, and we can’t limit how many Groupons are sold, we decided it was not a fit for us." So instead (civil disobedience!! or something), the restaurant is offering its own 50% off gift certificate deal while cutting out the middleman: Guests can visit its Facebook or Twitter account for a secret password to claim half-off deals directly from the restaurant.
