Drink Up, San Francisco

Well, it’s Friday afternoon, which means its time to start thinking about happy hour. You know Fridays get a little boozy around the MPSF blog, and we’d like you to get in on the action. Here are some suggestions for drinky things to do tonight and beyond:

Noisepop, that totally cool music festival that you forgot to get tickets to and now is mostly sold out, is going on right now and tonight they are hosting two happy hours, one at 5 p.m. at Noisepop headquarters (Thee Parkside) from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and one at the Diesel store from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There’s another one at Diesel, same time, on Saturday.

Thanks to Myopenbar.com for the tip: Saturday at Artists Television Access there will be a fundraiser for Creative Commons. For $6 you can get in, mingle, catch a film and drink lots of champagne.

Don’t forget, Sparky’s has cheap beer (like $1.50 or something) during happy hour, which lasts something like 5-10 p.m. They serve things like Pyramid and Sierra Nevada, so it’s a good deal.

Similarly, Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe in Emeryville sells $1 beers all from 9 p.m. to closing time at 1 a.m. But it’s in Emeryville.

Finally, for oenophiles, Bacar may be thought of as somewhere between Mecca and Nirvana. If that’s you, you should probably get tickets early for a “sommelier supper” with wine director Mickey Clevenger March 16. You get dinner and a tasting of more than 20 wines.
