Congratulations, you finally got your friends to commit to a game. Now rather than ask the group where they want to eat beforehand and spark a never-ending text debate, make things simple and tell them to meet you at Declaration. The menu here includes everything from salads and sandwiches to chicken wings and pizza, so everyone will be able to find something they like. This place serves weekend brunch too, in case you want to skip the burnt bacon at home and just head here before a day game.
