Happy Hour: It's What's for Dinner (and Your Cell Phone)

Posted By on Thu, Apr 29, 2010 at 3:29 PM

Foodistas who aren't embarrassed by the word "mixologist" like to proclaim we've entered a new Golden Age of Cocktails. It's also the rebirth of the happy hour: Raise a chocolatini glass to Lehman Brothers and Countrywide Financial for helping bring the five o'clock drink deal back into fashion. You no longer have to hunt for $3 wells and $1 oysters ― only the best of their kind.

Which is what we've been doing. If you haven't seen the SF Weekly's cover story this week, Matthew Stafford, a stalwart of our food pages, has searched the city for 30 of SF's best food and drink deals.

Yeah, there are mango mojitos aplenty, but he also finds pickled

quail eggs at the Alembic, potato curls with arugula pesto at the Epic

Roasthouse, and $3 cheeseburgers at McCormick & Kuleto's. For the

price of a burrito, you can get buzzed and full at the same time. Pick up a copy of the paper and circle your favorites, or download our iPhone/Blackberry/Android app.

And the hunt isn't over. Stafford found another 20 that we'll be highlighting on SFoodie in weeks to come, and we'll keep looking for more to

feed the blog and the app. If you discover a drink deal you think we should know about, tip us off.

  • 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.'"
