Owl Tree — FREE Food During Weekday Happy Hour!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Head here to binge on FREE snacks after work!

I don’t hang out in the Union Square area often.  It’s too loud and schizo for me between the tourists, the crackheads and the street performers gyrating to Michael Jackson songs and beating the shit out of trash cans.  But one bar I will brave the thousands of Street Sheet hawkers for is Owl Tree.  It’s not really much of a dive-y bar like most of those I frequent — in fact, it’s pretty cool, with its exposed brick walls, etched glass owl decorations and crotchety old bartender.

But the real draw of Owl Tree is the fact that during Monday through Friday happy hour, which runs from 4pm -7pm, they not only offer some FREE Chex-pub-mix thing, but near the back of the bar, set out on a golden platter looking all like it was set out by Jesus especially for you, is also FREE salami, cheese and crackers.  Is anyone as excited about this as I am?  No one stops you from going back, like, a bunch of times either.  Drinks aren’t dirt cheap, but beers are pretty standard and you get $1 off during happy hour.

Another cool thing about Owl Tree is that there’s an awesome separate upstairs room that you can reserve for FREE on your birthday, your graduation, or for the celebration of your herpes test coming back negative.  For FREE, why the fuck not?

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 eharmony.com 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.

    A tip to save some funds when enjoying movies it that instead of going to the movies on a busy sunday look at leasing your dvds. The standard price to rent a DVD is less than fifty percent of the cost of just one movie ticket at your average theater. Another bonus is that you might possibly hire about 4 movies from your local video store for the equivalent amount as 2 tickets at the movie theater.
