Friends, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not really into club-y, lounge-y type places. I much prefer the dive bars that are so dark and filthy that none of the other patrons can see — literally — that I haven’t showered in days and wouldn’t give two shits if they could. Oh, yeah. My kind of watering hole.
But sometimes I have friends, and sometimes those friends have birthdays. And naturally, those friends decide to celebrate those birthdays at places like The Ambassador. And sometimes those friends end up sucking face with three different ladies and not remembering I even showed up to those birthday celebrations at a place I would never, ever venture into of my own volition. Sometimes.
But I’m glad for these experiences, because I actually do kind of like The Ambassador now (and not just because I’m 98% sure my birthday friend contracted the herps there). Now, don’t get me wrong — I’m not likely to head over on a Saturday night (roofie central!), but I WILL return for another birthday or, obviously, FREE booze.
Since I’m now fresh out of friends with birthdays, it’s even more exciting that FREE booze is what SF Weekly‘s Super Happy Hour is offering on Thursday night! From 8pm – 9pm, you’ll have the chance to pound as much FREE alcohol as you can fit inside your stomach without puking! Good thing I don’t have to work on Fridays.
Incidentally, The Ambassador has a great Tuesday happy hour — from 6pm to midnight, you can snag $2 beer, wine, well drinks and bar food. Always looking out.Free Drinks at SF Weekly’s Super Happy Hour at The Ambassador Thursday, August 12, 8pm – 9pm 673 Geary St. (btwn Jones & Leavenworth) [Civic Center/Tenderloin]
