Sun-Dappled Eats, Cheap Beer, and Bonding with Strangers: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
WTF, buddy, you're living in a Mediterranean climate -- eat like it once in a while. SF Weekly restaurant critic Meredith Brody knows the perfect place to start: the ezme and iskender kebap at A La Turca (869 Geary at Larkin, 345-1011).
It opens at 6 a.m. -- you know, just in case you didn't make it to the liquor store last night. By 5 p.m., the barstools are warm and squishy, good time to show up for a cheap cold one. The 500 Club (500 Guerrero at 17th St., 861-2500).
It's like Cheers, only the regulars sometimes vomit in the restroom. Make a bleary connection over nightly beer specials at Shanghai Kelly's (2064 Polk at Broadway, 771-3300). Check the Web for details.
