Happy Hour Sports Bar
2519 Market Street, Sherman Heights
If you blink, you'll pass it. Just listen for Mookie and Runt. The dogs will bark their heads off at you, the first time. Beside their dusty yard sits an ancient little wooden building, max 10 feet wide, weather-worn chocolate brown, hidden by a California pepper tree. No sign. But open the door anyway. Inside is maybe the friendliest bar since Lonesome Dove. Ask for Mike. During the week, expect only hot dogs, but weekends, he cooks great bargains. Down-home dishes like the pork chop plate, Swiss steak with mashed potatoes, gravy and corn, and BBQ spare ribs. During the football season, he fires up an outside BBQ. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday. That's when Mike takes off for Mexico.
