Best Bar to Bridge the Generation Gap - 2009
Despite San Francisco's cornucopia of bars, watering holes, and dives, few drinking establishments in the city can tout a balanced age demographic. Face facts: Most bars cater to a younger set. A few have a token old guy, sometimes welcome, sometimes not. But the 3300 Club in the Mission runs the gamut. You've got your twentysomethings; then there's the collection of drinkers who could be anywhere from 30 to 48; next are the folks counting down the days to their first Social Security payment; and, finally, genuine old people! They talk to you and everything. Some buy you lottery tickets. Most, inexplicably, have dogs with them. It's just like the real world, but you're in a bar.
