Happy Hour: It's What's for Dinner (and Your Cell Phone)

Foodistas who aren't embarrassed by the word "mixologist" like to proclaim we've entered a new Golden Age of Cocktails. It's also the rebirth of the happy hour: Raise a chocolatini glass to Lehman Brothers and Countrywide Financial for helping bring the five o'clock drink deal back into fashion. You no longer have to hunt for $3 wells and $1 oysters ― only the best of their kind.

Which is what we've been doing. If you haven't seen the SF Weekly's cover story this week, Matthew Stafford, a stalwart of our food pages, has searched the city for 30 of SF's best food and drink deals.

Yeah, there are mango mojitos aplenty, but he also finds pickled

quail eggs at the Alembic, potato curls with arugula pesto at the Epic

Roasthouse, and $3 cheeseburgers at McCormick & Kuleto's. For the

price of a burrito, you can get buzzed and full at the same time. Pick up a copy of the paper and circle your favorites, or download our iPhone/Blackberry/Android app.

And the hunt isn't over. Stafford found another 20 that we'll be highlighting on SFoodie in weeks to come, and we'll keep looking for more to

feed the blog and the app. If you discover a drink deal you think we should know about, tip us off.
