One often hears people say that San Francisco has more bars per capita than any other major city in the U.S. Is that even true? (Edit- Many you have linked to various articles showing this isn’t factually true, but for many San Franciscans it is emotionally true. Anyway, it’s just something I heard over and over again when I first moved here, probably from people who were drunk.) I don’t know, but there are certainly more bars here than one can easily count. And I don’t plan on just counting the bars, I plan on having a drink at every single one of them.
How long will this take? Is it possible to keep up with bars constantly closing and opening? I have no idea, but here is my plan:
Like all big projects, breaking this down into smaller projects will help keep me from getting overwhelmed. My plan is to tackle one neighborhood at a time, going to at least a bar a week. I haven’t decided exactly what the borders will be, (other than the obvious ones of Bay and Ocean,) but I have decided that I will only count stand alone bars that serve alcohol, (i.e. no restaurants or wine bars.)
Wish me and my liver luck!
