December 31: at home in your pj's or out on the town? January 1: running a 5K or marathoning movies? The new year comes with a lot of choices, so we don't blame you if you have decision fatigue. One place that will make things easier is The Bird in FiDi/SoMa. The menu has just one item: a fried chicken sandwich loaded with celery, house-made apple slaw, mayo and pickles. Your only choice is whether to get it regular or spicy. Okay, you might also have to decide whether you want to wait in line — but we'll tell you right now you do. This no-frills joint focuses on the essentials and is definitely worth the wait. It'll be the best decision you'll make all day.
