The Founding Fathers held their initial meetings in a neighborhood tavern, which explains why the Declaration of Independence's first draft had a long, rambling subsection devoted to how powdered wigs are natural icebreakers. Revolt against the tyranny of boredom with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, burgers, and pub fare at The Evergreen Bar & Grill in Morrison.
The Evergreen Bar & Grill festoons tables in its expansive dining room with specialty pizzas, burgers and sandwiches, and traditional crispy bar eats. Patrons can plunge fingers into bottomless shrimp baskets ($10.95) for inexhaustible wells of deep-fried shrimp primed for dipping in pools of house-made cocktail sauce. Diners can bedeck personalized pies with two toppings ($5 for a 9"; $8 for a 12"; $12 for a 16") or more (+$1–$1.50/topping), or sift through the classic pizza's morsels of sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, and extra cheese ($10 for a 12"). Bacon and fried onions don tangy barbecue coats atop a third-pound patty and layer of american cheese on the Roadhouse burger ($5.95). The philly wrap ($5.95) mingles philly steak or chicken with mozzarella cheese and sautéed onions and peppers, swaddling its contents in an edible embrace to shield them from cutlery.
As they tone their jaw muscles with chewing reps, patrons can follow sports events on The Evergreen's stock of TVs and slake their thirst with drinks served over a forest-green bar. Pool, darts, and skee-ball keep nimble hands busy every night until at least 2 a.m.
