The Sycamore: Your Neighborhood Mission Bar

There’s something special about local, corner bars. I’m not sure why that fact that they are situated on a corner makes them feel cooler – but the Sycamore in the Mission definitely has that cozy, neighborhood feel. The Sycamore is a great gastropub that seves awesome food and some good brews to wash it down with.

Come in a grab a beer at  Happy Hour and get $1 off all drafts. They only serve beer and wine – but they have quite a selection. If you are really dying for something harder, you may be able to score a baby bottle of Underberg.  The patio is a perfect place to hang out on a warm night, or nestle yourself into a sofa when it is too cold to go outside. The red and black interior has a kinda rocker feel to it, and you can find some good jams on the jukebox and play boardgames.

I like to get the mix-n-match sliders for $3.50 a pop, and you can add fries or a salad for just $1. For brunch, the Pork Belly Donuts are all the rage, battered in a Maker’s Mark maple glaze. They also serve bottomless mimosas for $12 on Saturdays and Sundays. Once you drop in, you won’t want to leave until they close!

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
