Dirt Cheap Margaritas and Tacos at Underdog’s

So if you’re like me, you’re always looking for great happy hours in the city. This past Friday, I went ahead and tried a bar close to SF State. Normally, this means that I either end up in a pub with a bunch of bros or an old tiny hole in the wall with really disgusting and depressing men. I mean, lets face it, the Sunset is not bursting with amazing nightlife.

But then I checked out Underdog’s Sports Bar and Grill and I’m convinced I’ve found my new near school bar hangout.  On Fridays, they have $.50 margaritas. $.50! Now, granted, the ones they serve you are only a bit larger then a shot glass, but they serve you two at a time and they aren’t too bad. I downed three sets in about 30 minutes without really trying and I definitely had a buzz going.  The place was packed with people, but the waiters made their rounds pretty frequently, so I was happy.

I also decided to try some of their tacos, since I had heard their kitchen was a satellite of Nick’s Crispy Tacos in Russian Hill. I tried the $5 taco sampler, which gave you one carne asada taco, one carnitas taco and one chicken taco, and they were amazing! They were street style and bursting with flavor, and definitely filling.

So lets see…I managed to get full AND get my drink on for less than $10!?!?! How is that for a recession special?  Plus, they have California Burritos!!

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year, she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze, get at me.]
