Taking shots at this Mission-based drinking mecca is a must. The beer-garden patio is a studied tableau of hip scenery. Plus, the mascot is none other than a death bunny. While this biker dive has more bicycles than Harleys, this is a bar we come back time after time for the 40 beers on tap and the legendary bloody marys. They are served just they way like it — strong and at 9 a.m. And we don’t grumble about the kitchen service. A trip to Zeitgeist isn’t complete without the tamale lady and you know it!
Zeitgeist, 199 Valencia Street (at Duboce Avenue); 415-255-7505.
