Get In The Mood (Wink Wink) With $1 Oysters at Waterbar

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Suck 'em down, then get it on. Preferably in the restrooms.

I LOVE going to nice restaurants and being that customer that sits at the bar refusing any other food besides the absolute cheapest things on the menu, which, at the beautiful, yet fairly douchey (a word I reserve for eateries that are not taquerias), Waterbar, are the $1 “Today’s Featured Oysters” from 11:30am – 6:30pm.  The longest happy hour ever, people!  Not to mention perfect for lazy-ass work-from-homers like me who actually, on occasion and if desired, could feasibly stay for the ENTIRE happy hour.  I’m sure the servers would love that.

Waterbar, true to its name, is situated right on the bay and offers some pretty amazing views.  Now, I don’t know how far you’re gonna get taking a date to this place and then telling him/her that the only thing you’re willing to pay for are $1 oysters, so you may have to throw in a few $3 happy hour beers from 3pm – 6pm on the weekdays, which is most likely doable.  I think there’s also some kind of discounted appetizer menu during happy hour, but I honestly have no idea about it due to my blinding devotion to the cheap, fresh supposed aphrodisiacs that I keep hoping will one day get me laid.  Maybe it would help if I took a shower once in a while.

Btw, thanks to Kim T. for the tip!

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
