Why have a glass when you can have the whole bottle? That is our philosophy most evenings, anyway. Thankfully, a number of our city's restaurants share our slightly lush-ish view. Here's where (and when) to head for half-off bottles of wine.
The Wine Kitchen: Mondays are no longer the worst day of the week. Stop in at this aptly-named Divisadero spot and choose from roughly 40 selections. Snack on rosemary and lavender almonds and pork rinds with paprika and avocado, or make a night of it and stay for dinner. 507 Divisadero Street
Café des Amis: If you've been dreaming of a good bottle of bubbly or wistfully wishing you could afford that beautiful Burgundy, Tuesdays at Café des Amis is the place to quell your expensive tastes for half the price. Don't forget the oysters. 2000 Union Street
Liberty Café: The Tuesday night deals continue at this favorite Bernal Heights café. Its menu is small, but when you're drinking a vibrant Napa rosé for $18, this no longer seems to matter. 410 Cortland Avenue
Perry's: Both the Union Street and Embarcadero locations offer two nights of discounts. On Monday and Thursdays, head to the Union Street location, or stop in at its downtown sister on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Between the two, that's four glorious days of cheap drinking. 1944 Union Street; 155 Steuart Street
Cinecittà: The North Beach ristorante promises a taste of Rome; drink a bottle of red wine at its sidewalk table on a Monday or Tuesday, and see just how right they are. 663 Union Street
