The Sunset is almost never a destination when it comes to nightlife, which is probably why places like the venerable Riptide are so fond of specials. Not that they’re all that worried about drumming up business anyway, since their following is very loyal and pretty local.
It’s touching nonetheless, that they have a weekly industry night every Tuesday with two-dollar booze and beers. It isn’t exactly clear how they decipher who’s in and who isn’t in the biz but the bar is pretty mellow and cheap as hell anyway, so it’s probably not crazy exclusive. Maybe, a little bit of a trek if you’re not close, but the L-Taraval is right outside if you feel separation anxiety from central locales.
They usually have some sort of grub going on as well if you’re hungry.
