Starches, Shots, and Shuffleboard: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
Animal fats and starches: They're not just for breakfast anymore. SF Weekly critic Meredith Brody suggests lubricating your brogue with the Irish breakfast (eggs, Irish bacon, pork sausage, pork pudding, fried potatoes, baked beans, and Irish soda bread) at the Village Grill (160 West Portal at Vicente, 681-5299).
Think of the name as ironic. Seriously -- they're really, really nice to you at Grumpy's American Pub (125 Vallejo at Front, 434-3350), 'specially when you're hammered silly on the $7 beer-and-a-shot happy-hour special, available 4-7 p.m.
It's lovably fusty, and you can play shuffleboard. Grab your best vintage fedora and drink in the Mission's hipster scene at Doc's Clock (2575 Mission at 21st St., 824-3627). While you're at it, save a few bucks during happy hour, 6-9 p.m.
