A Handful of Tasty, Greek Mumbo Jumbo, and Liquid Price Busters: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
Watch today's televised Giants game against Houston with something altogether more delicious in your hand than the clicker. SF Weekly critic Meredith Brody suggests the house-cured pastrami on New York rye with artisan Gruyere, pickled vegetables, and fries at Acme Chophouse (24 Willie Mays Plaza, King and Third St.).
Looks like somebody's been surfing Wikipedia: Pres a Vi (One Letterman, Building D, Suite 150) is calling its happy hour "bakcheia," some Greek concept of self-liberation through the ecstasy of wine. Ponder that while sucking down $3 bottled beers and featured drafts, plus $6 cocktails and $10 wine flights, 3-6 p.m.
Like a used car dealer, John Collins (650 Gough at McAllister) is ready to roll up its sleeves and make some deals. Try $2 domestic bottles, $3 drafts and imports, and $4 wells, Guinness, and Boddingtons, plus a buck off everything else, 5-7 p.m.
