9. Any party bus driver to Napa
You knew what you were in for, but you came anyway. Thank you for taking our ADHD music requests, for dealing with that one girl who sat in the front seat and decided to flirt with you, and for ignoring whatever it is that went on in the bathroom. God, we hope the tip we left you was big enough.
10. The person on a bar crawl that is keeping theirs and everyone else's sh** together
Let's all face the fact that bar crawls are actually pretty much the worst, whether you're on them ("Shots at six different Polk St spots??? Um, yes!"), or just an innocent bystander who was already there ("Wait an extra 30mins for that whiskey ginger I just ordered at Tonic??? Um, yes!"). The one person who saves it, though, is the person in charge -- the saintly saint who makes sure everything keeps going and doesn't derail and totally screw over one bar with an influx of people inexplicably in golf attire.
11. The group that last-minute cancelled their reservation at State Bird Provisions, NOPA, or Rich Table
We cannot even imagine what cooler night you somehow seem to have planned, but you just made ours so much better by your sheer absence. Now, our extremely slim hope of showing up and praying for an empty walk-in table has just been realized, and us plebeians who don't know how to get reservations to these spots will actually get to see why everyone loves them so much. Basically, we heart you.
12. The guy who knows the password to the Wi-Fi
Thank you for not judging us for just wanting to get on the internet without ordering anything (we'll buy something to eat in a second, we've just got work to do).
Joe Starkey is Thrillist's San Francisco Editor, and would also like to personally thank any server/bartender who's greeted him with, "What can I get you, handsome?". He knows it's flattery, but it'll get you everywhere. Like following him on Twitter.
