5 new SF happy hours you should definitely hit up

Daisy Barringer

A typical morning around here involves waking up, walking the dog, showering, booting up the computer, and then pondering where to go for happy hour. If you're anything like us (which we suspect you are), your morning isn't too different. Except you probably actually shower, and you don't need to ponder the whole happy hour thing since we've got five new SF ones for you right here:
