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 a natural icebreaker. Revolt against the tyranny of boredom with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Fountini's Bar & Grill in Fountain Hills.
Fountini's Bar & Grill spangles its menu's pages with an enticing blend of pub classics and inventive entrees, served amidst high-definition TVs and frequent live music. Dive below melty layers of cheese, bacon, green onions, and sour cream to discover a crispy foundation of potato skins ($6.79), creating the tastiest outer layer since Saturn outlawed picnics on its rings. Burger artists smother half-pound Angus patties with a range of delectable toppings, including roasted red chilis and melted cheddar cheese ($9.79). To simultaneously enjoy a gourmet meal and an NFL game, as Escoffier always intended, opt for a platter of crab-stuffed Alaskan cod topped with red-onion jam ($17.79) or the Fountini fillet, choice beef tenderloin swathed in smoked bacon and lavender béarnaise atop a bed of horseradish mashed potatoes ($16.59–$28.79).
