Keep up with SF's once-golden boys on 30+ screens, while pigging out on their all-you-can-eat "Tailgate Buffet" starting at 9a, nearly six hours after that chick who only sleeps when it's raining calls Matchbox Twenty and tells them she's lonely... look, if a song's on Now That's What I Call Music 23, you listen to it, alright?!?
Catalina Lounge is a low-key dive with cheap pitchers, pool, darts, shuffleboard, inexpensive pitchers, and a nice array of big screen TVs -- plus specials on pitchers.
Tavern at the Beach can be found in Pacific Beach, offering a great beer selection, taps at the table, and a menu with double battered bacon.
Miller's Field is a huge, very popular (watch out for the line on Saturdays) indoor/outdoor spot that's great for catching a game, a mason jar of your favorite poison, or a bite to eat (or all three!).
Right on the Pacific Ocean, Shore Club's got great bar fare as well as boozy slushies sure to cool you down on any summer (or any other season) day. There's an open air rooftop patio, and the kitchen is open late night, slinging greasy yet elevated eats (think in terms of sauteed lobster tacos) from 9pm until close. It’s a good thing, too, because you can work up quite the appetite during those Wednesday night goldfish races, which don’t start until 10pm.
The coolest part about Side Bar is that if you don't feel like waiting around or sipping on a cocktail that's 87% ice, you can take a mixology class right here. Learn to make your own drinks -- use as much ice as you want, and wait for nobody! Because it's San Diego, and the majority of clientele is female, there is obviously bottle service. If that's not your cup o' whiskey, then just enjoy the music and see where the night takes you...
If you're a country boy, or girl, get down to the DD to ride the bull and take some shots. After you've completed those two tasks, repeat.
