Today's Special

On The Blackboard—San Francisco

BBQ Tasting Menu at Southpaw
Time to loosen up your belt—but not your wallet—for Southpaw’s four-course Southern tasting menu ($35). Score a seat at their kitchen counter and let the BBQ feast come to you. Picture: beef “dinosaur” bones, juicy beef brisket, smoked pulled goat with salsa verde, and a peanut butter ice cream sundae with carmelized rum bananas and bacon carmel sauce. While you’re there, join their Whiskey Book—it’s like a special club where you’ll sample their diverse whiskey collection. After sipping on 40 of your choosing (over time, not in one seating—you’re not a monster), you get to walk away with a bottle of your favorite.

When: Sat 3 PM–11:30 PM; Sun 3 PM–10:30 PM; Mon, Wed 5 PM–10:30 PM; Thu–Fri 5 PM–11:30 PM; closed Tuesday
Where: 2170 Mission St., San Francisco, CA 94110
Telephone: 415-934-9300



Shuck n’ Jive at Bergerac
Dine like an oyster king every Wednesday at Bergerac, where you can fill up on freshly shucked mollusks for $1 a pop to the tunes of a live blues band. Since you’ll need something to wash them down with, the generous folks at this speakeasy-inspired spot are offering pisco cocktails ($6) and, for those who are extremely thirsty, pisco punch bowls ($25) as a refreshing pairing. And if pisco isn’t your preferred poison, sip, or rather, chug a drop shot of Fireball in cider.

When: Wednesdays 7 PM–10 PM
Where: 316 11th St., San Francisco, CA 94103
Telephone: 415-255-9440



Happy Hour Happy Meal at Plum Bar
If you thought you were too old for a happy meal, you obviously haven’t been to Plum Bar. This uptown Oakland–based watering hole rewards customers with a special happy hour treat: a cheeseburger made from ground rib eye steak with smoked paprika fries and a shot of Four Roses bourbon, plus a pint of draft beer, all for $19. Toys are not included, but we have a feeling you’ll be okay with the whiskey. And in case it’s not enough, they offer $1 off wines and draught pints, and $8 cocktails.

When: Mon–Fri 4 PM–6 PM
Where: 2216 Broadway, Oakland, CA, 94607
Telephone: 510-444-7586



Eight Kinds of Ramen on Ramen Street
For one weekend only, indulge all your noodle soup cravings on Ramen Street, the highly anticipated (and arguably tastiest) event at this year’s J-Pop Summit. Six ramen traders from Los Angeles (Tatsunoya, Fujin Ramen, Mattou Seimen), Las Vegas (Monta Ramen), Japan (Horaiya), and, of course, San Francisco (Men Oh), will set up shop on Post Street, serving their famous fresh noodles and incredibly flavorful broth—for just $8 a bowl. And if Toyama black shoyu ramen and tonkotsu soup don’t sound appetizing to you, there will be also be a spicy miso ramen burger on the menu.

When: July 19–20, 11 AM–6 PM
Where: Japantown, 1698 Post St., San Francisco, CA 94115
Telephone: 415-567-4573



Throw Back Thursdays at Two Jack’s Seafood
There are happy hours, and then there’s Throw Back Thursdays at Two Jack’s Seafood, a soul food institution in the Lower Haight. Chef Nik Cooper, the second-generation owner and chef of this family-run spot, is paying homage to 1977, the year the restaurant was established. Every Thursday, munch on burgers ($2.25), oysters and catfish ($4), chicken wings ($3), red snapper ($3.60), fries (70 cents), and beers ($2), priced just like they were when the Southern comfort food joint first opened its doors. Word to the wise: Get there early—you’ll have to fight off loyal customers like Questlove for a table.

When: Thursdays 4 PM–7 PM
Where: 401 Haight St., San Francisco, CA 94117
Telephone: 415-431-6290
