Prime viewing for the Polk Street parade.
The place: Parrilla, 1760 Polk (at Washington), 359-1212

The hours: Daily, 4-7 p.m.

The deals: $9 pitchers of sangria and margaritas; $2 draft Dos Equis

The digs: Friendly, fun-loving hangout with live music, dancing, Wednesday night trivia, and a menu of pan-Latin specialties. The dark, earth-toned quasi-Southwestern interior is pleasant enough, but try to snag one of the popular sidewalk tables and take in the passing Polk Gulch parade.

The sangria's just okay, but hey, it's cheap.
The verdict: The sangria's just okay but the margaritas are pretty tasty, and a pitcher of the stuff goes very nicely with a few friends, a sunny afternoon, and a platter of snack items. Viz.: albondigas ($3), garlic lime fries ($4), grilled corn on the cob ($4), fried plantains ($5), taquitos ($6), fondue for two ($7), guacamole and chips ($7), nachos grandes ($7), hot wings ($8), and calamari with chipotle aïoli ($8). On Tuesdays tacos are $2, on Wednesdays the beer's $1.83, and at Sunday brunch the Bloody Marys cost a mere $3.65. The bar features two dozen tequilas and is a fine place to kick off any Polk Street pub crawl.
