The digit: 13. The number of burgers on Flagship's menu.
This Lakeview bar from the owners of The Stretch and Cortland's Garage has all the trappings of a traditional sports bar, from the wooden high-top tables to the bartenders in logo tank tops. But burger fans will want to take note: The patties here are the work of the same chef who's behind the popular burgers at Cortland's. There's a wider selection of toppings -- including mac `n' cheese ($12) or pear and gorgonzola ($12) -- plus a line-up of draft beers and a cocktail list ($8-$12). If you're really thirsty, order one of the 32-ounce Mason jar cocktails ($14). Specials include daily $15 domestic buckets, $3 Blue Moon drafts and seasonal bottles on Thursdays, $15 Miller Lite and Coors Light buckets on Fridays and Saturdays; and $3 16-ounce Busch Light and PBR cans and half-price Skyy vodka bombs on Sundays.
