The heat of summer is here in The Coachella Valley and that means most of your paycheck is going to the electric company for the pleasure of not melting in the middle of your own home.  But just because you are short on cash, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself this weekend.  Here is a list of local Groupons your broke ass could use:

Almost half off Caribbean / Creole food at Dhat Island Rancho Mirage:
http://www.groupon.com/deals/dhat-island-4
Dhat Island’s Redland’s location has been packed just about every night for years. That’s because the food is legit (chicken fritter appetizer with “House Josh Special Sauce” is especially tasty). Now there is our very own Dhat Island in the old Marie Calendar’s building in Rancho Mirage and they are getting 4.5/5 stars on Yelp.

40% off Mexican Food at Huerta’s in Indio:
http://www.groupon.com/deals/huerta-s-restaurant
Huerta’s has 4 out of 5 stars on Yelp and you hey LA Kings fans: you can get a shrimp cocktail served in a Stanley Cup replica

Burgers and malts at Woody’s for 50% off:
