Okay, so maybe you didn't have a quirky English granny who crammed her cottage with gilt-edged bric-a-brac. Experience the next best thing, says SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody, by tucking into the shepherd's pie at Lovejoy's Tea Room (1351 Church at Clipper, 648-5895).
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred m-i-i-i-nutes -- live out your Rent fantasies, girl, while getting hammered on a boho budget: Cop happy-hour drink specials at The Mint Karaoke Lounge (1942 Market at Duboce, 626-4726).
