Primary Day, Part 2: Drinking Liberally



I was amused by this article in the New York Times a couple days ago. Not that there's any sort of political angle to this blog, I just like it when people getting together to drink and talk become newsworthy. I was curious whether SF had a Drinking Liberally chapter. Unsurprisingly, we do. Here's the information and sign up list.

Happy Hour at O Izakaya




I hadn't been to a true happy hour in years, but the other day I stumbled into the one at O Izakaya. Beers, well sake and well drinks were each $3, which seemed like a pretty good deal (I drank Sapporo). What was a great turn on, though, was the food, priced on a special happy-hour $5 list. We sampled the seaweed salad, ultra-fresh hamachi and the tempura/beer-battered onion rings and loved all of it.
