Let's do lunch:
Eat lunch squatting in an alley -- no, seriously. SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody says gorge on a waffle-and-fried chicken box and red velvet cupcake at takeout-only Little Skillet (360 Ritch at Townsend, 777-2777).
Mingle with crusty barflys and hipsters lugging Urban Outfitters shopping bags while scoring free happy hour nibbles and drink specials at Dave's (29 Third St. at Market, 495-6726).
Its MySpace page welcomes boozehounds and lushes. They can save serious coin by guzzling $3 happy-hour well drinks and drafts while taking aim at Buckhunter's Call of the Wild video game: Buckshot Bar and Gameroom (3848 Geary at Third Ave., 831-8838), 5-9 p.m.
