bender’s bar and grill
I’m a huge fan of Bender’s Bar and Grill. It’s one of the last great divey rock n roll bars that’s still left in San Francisco. I’ve rhapsodized about them before, but to be succinct, I love that the drinks are cheap, the food is good, and the bartenders are the perfect mix of sweet and surly. Also, the walls are covered in signs from many of my favorite businesses that have closed.
Twenty years from now, when your kids are old enough to know better but young enough to not give a fuck, they’ll be searching for places like Bender’s. Places where the religion is loud rock and roll, the sacrament is stiff drinks, and the scripture is graffiti tagged on a bathroom stall.
I am extremely excited to announce the release of The Delicious Card! Delicious cardholders get awesome deals at over 30 of your favorite SF eateries! Membership is a great way to explore new places, support local businesses, and support local journalism.
