The place: Tortilla Heights, 1750 Divisadero (at Bush), 346-4351.

The hours: Daily, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The deals: A different drink deal for each day of the week, plus $13 margarita pitchers and complimentary chips and salsa Monday through Friday

The digs: Proto-Cabo cowabunga hangout with mounted sombreros and surfboards, thatched-roof booths, wicker barstools, and Christmas lights the year 'round. Hypnotic reggae adds to the tropical Western Addition ambience.

The verdict: Every day there's another reason to drop by this fun and festive (if not especially authentic) Baja Norte getaway. On Mondays there are two-for-one pints of Sierra and Dos Equis. Tuesdays offer $1 tacos and $10 pitchers of beer. On Wednesdays, margaritas are just a buck apiece, and on Thursdays and Fridays you can chase $4 shots of Milagro tequila with $2 cans of Tecate cerveza. Pitchers of Dos Equis are $10 on Saturday (Milagro shots are $4), and on Sundays, vitamin-rich sangria is $12 per pitcher from 3:30 on. That's in addition to the weekday $13 margarita pitchers and the warm, crunchy chips, which are accompanied by three excellent salsas (tomato-cilantro, green chile, and smoky habañero). Sounds like a party!

Overall grade: B+

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
