  1. This is the only place I've heard of people having trouble using a groupon. Some friends had trouble using this last time if the food to booze ratio was not correct.

      Last time they required you to purchase $15 of food for each $15/$30 Groupon. The rationale was that that way they wouldn't run afoul of MA's restriction on discounting booze (ie, they could claim they discounted to food 100% and the booze 0%). I was under the impression that this was in the fine print last time, but it's not there this time. In the discussion, there's this:

      "Hi, this is Tom, friend of the Bones.

      Nathan, yes the certificates are good for food and drink – but not just drink, you have to be sitting down and ordering food too."

    2. They sold out sometime early this afternoon. I didn't know they could sell out of them, but I can see why they'd need to at some point. Apparently I got one of the last ones too, because they were at almost 9000 sold when I bought mine and apparently cut them off at 10,000.
