Supervisor Chris Daly has gotten plenty of attention recently for his plunge from politics into the barman's trade. Daly, who is now co-owner of the Buck Tavern on Market near Gough, will be at his new digs from 4 p.m. on tonight for an inaugural drinking session.
We called Daly to see if there will be any special speechifying, drink specials, or extra bouncers to mark the occasion. His answer: None of the above, with the exception of one extra staff member to handle the large number of patrons he expects. “I know a lot of people” who are planning to stop by, Daly says. (Expect plenty of City Hall types, but don't expect Mayor Gavin Newsom to take a dive off the wagon in Daly's honor.)
