Whipper Snapper has a Happening Happy Hour

I found a great place for Happy Hour in San Rafael that I can swoop by for a drink and some cheap appetizers on my way back to the city after work. Whipper Snapper is the perfect spot for meeting the girls for a pitcher of Sangria and some tapas. They offer a banging Happy Hour specials Tuesdays -Fridays from 5-6 p.m. Certain dishes are just $3 and you get good deals on pitchers of Sangria. It’s best to order a bit of everything and share.

The “Snapper” is the sister restaurant of Cha Cha Cha’s in the city – and the Sangria is the exact same recipe. The red one is good year round, and I’d recommend the white one with peaches on a hot summer’s day while chillin’ on their back patio. The food is tasty and affordable. The tapas are not definitely not authentic Spanish tapas – the cuisine mixes Caribbean and Latin American flavors. Think fried plantains, black beans, coconut salad dressing and cajun shrimp. The atmosphere is fun and the interior is colorful. The place is often packed, especially when there is  live music on the weekends. Whipper Snapper is definitely worth a try – that won’t put too much of a dent in your wallet.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

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.
