Let's do lunch:
Grossed out by the hot dog-sloppy torta Cubana Anthony Bourdain mashed into his face last week on No Reservations? Go classic, says SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody, with a hot pressed Cubano (pork, ham, Swiss cheese, mustard, and mayo) and fried sweet plaintains at Paladar Café Cubano, 329 Kearny (at Pine), 398-4899.

Drink therapy:
So you're even forgoing car camping at Clear Lake in this suckiest of economies. Console yourself with happy hour drink specials (3-7 p.m.) at log-cabin-rustic Bigfoot Lodge, 1750 Polk (at Clay), 440-2355. The upside? Unlike camping, your fellow merrymakers at the Bigfoot will have showered that morning. Probably.

Synchronicity, or something altogether freakier? The Giants game against the Mets hits the HD flatscreen at 4:10 p.m., almost the exact minute Martini Hour drops at MoMo's, 760 Second St. (at King), 227-8660. Score $4 specialty martini, drafts, wines, and shots till 7 p.m.
