  • Who doesn't love tater tots? The morning-after hangover is your problem.
The place: Horizon Restaurant and Lounge, 498 Broadway (at Kearny), 576-1118

The hours: Wed.-Fri., 5-10 p.m.

The deals: $3 beers, $4 house wine and well drinks, $5 well martinis, and $6 premium cocktails; hearty snacks for $3 and $5; bottomless $20 tumbler/stein/wine glass on Wednesdays and Thursdays

The digs: Sprawling hyper-cool oasis for lookers and loungers amid the grit and neon of Kearny and Broadway. The sleek, low-slung black and bronze setting features deep leather sofas, a 70-foot black marble bar, splashes of cobalt neon, and a thrumming, self-aggrandizing vibe. Expansive dance floor too.

The verdict: Horizon's Wednesday and Thursday night all-you-can-drink deal has to be one of the city's most tempting happy hour options.

For $20 you can sip the beer, house wine, or well drink of your choice and to your heart's content, as long as you stick to the same hooch (no switch-outs); the morning hangover is your problem. If you're not ready to make a night of it, opt for the entirely reasonable $3 beer/$4 house wine or well drink/$6 premium cocktail deal instead. There are also plenty of tasty snacks available for between-sips munching at only $3-$5: loaded tater tots, sweet potato fries, Wagyu sliders, Kobe nachos, truffled cheese fries, beer-battered calamari, Buffalo wings, fried zucchini, jalapeño poppers. All in all a cheap and tasty way to get smashed and happy.

Overall grade: A-

  • 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.'"
