We’re big believers in celebrating the tiny victories. So when your office surprise-installs cold brew on draft, take the money you saved by not buying coffee all week and go to One Eared Stag. Stick with a few of the hot and cold starters, like the dumpster salad with bacon and fried bread, because the entrees can get pricey. They also do family-style fried chicken dinners, which are the best excuse to get out on a Monday night. Or you can always order the “meatstick” too, their gigantic secret menu burger. Finishing the whole thing will be a tiny victory in itself.
