FREE Surf Films and Pizza at The Riptide

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

It’s probably pretty hard to be broke if you live all the way in the Outer Sunset because those cab fares can’t be cheap. But like any decent neighborhood it must have its share of cheap neighborhood bars, otherwise people wouldn’t live there, right? The Riptide must be pretty rad then because I keep hearing about their awesome events, but I can never make it all the way out there. Their site claims it’s only “20 minutes from downtown” but that’s like 2 hours if you’re taking the L – Taraval.

But! If you’re already out there enjoying what has been voted as the best fireplace in the city and the smoking lounge with an ocean view, perhaps you’ll also enjoy their Wet Wednesdays with FREE grub and screenings of surf films. FREE food is crucial, because I imagine it’s tricky getting someone to deliver a pie out there.

    Riptide is our local hangout: there’s a pizza joint (Brothers Pizza & Indian food) right next door, and Bashful Bull Too diner across the street. Perfect after several pints.

    Is Brothers the place that has the chicken curry pizzas?

    Also, the Riptide’s site says “ask about our reduced cab fares to and from the Riptide.” Any idea what that means/how reduced it is?
