Pinball, pool, and punk rock on the jukebox. And what’s more punk rock than drinking at one of SF’s best dive bars on Christmas Day? It might open around 2pm, but it’s up to that day’s bartender, so call ahead: 415.487.1313.
If your out-of-town family wants to go to Fisherman’s Wharf, make sure you stop at Fog Harbor Fish House for a pumpkin pie martini. The bar is open from 11am to 9pm and it’ll be serving seafood as well.
Is it going to be open? According to the bartender we spoke to: “unfortunately.” Still, this spot, which was one of Herb Caen’s favorites, is the place to hit up if you’re going to be in Fisherman’s Wharf. And you can start drinking here around 10:30am.
It's opening at 7pm. Grab two spots at the bar -- one for you and one for the “Play All Day” Elmo doll Santa left under the tree. Or something like that.
If you’re nice, maybe you can hang your stocking by the chimney with care from 5pm until 2am.
