Check Out Hipster Thursdays

Alright Mission Dwellers. This month is dedicated to you spunky guys and gals. Whether or not you rock tight jeans, a messenger bag, or flannel (before it got mainstream, of course), we’ve got the ultimate hook up for you.

Check out Uber! When you’re cruising to the co-op to get your groceries or leaving the club…kick the bouncer in the balls and ditch the stoggy corporate fatcats…we’d like to present…the future.

—> Hit one button on your iPhone (or any mobile phone) and you’ll get a slick private driver in about 5 minutes! With you all in mind, we’d like to announce…

< Hipster Thursdays! $5 Off. >

What: $5 off any ride that ends in the Mission.

When: Thursdays from 6pm – 10pm until the end of February.

Why: We <3 the Mission & want to pay for your PBR.

Where: In the Mission, boundaries below:

Give your fixie a little breather and ride home in a comfy town car! Oh, the irony we know you’ll appreciate. And, for the non-Missionites, this darling district is worth getting to know. Below we’ve put a little guide to some of the Mission’s best establishments. We’d love for you to add your favorite venues in the comments.


Here are some of the best eats, dives and sites of the rockin Mission District to explore:

Pancho Villa: Quality Mexican food on the cheap, with a seriously impressive salsa bar! Who doesn’t love a little late night burrito with a car waiting outside? This combo is not only a Mission classic, but an SF classic! Be careful of hot sauce that will destroy you!

3071 16th St.


Zeitgeist: It’s probably SF’s favorite dive bar, with a GIANT outdoor patio, diverse beer selection and the infamous Tamale Lady! Zeitgeist hosts a pretty solid live music setup from time to time as well.

Dolores Park: The perfect place to lie on the grass with a date & sip on some wine. “Alternatively,” heads up for the guy selling marijuana truffles. The view from the top at Church & 20th is amazing (definitely one of the best in the city).

Elbo Room: Amazing music venue and great meetup spot for drinks. “San Francisco’s longest happy hour” from 5pm-9pm everyday. Drink up! $2 draft pints and $1 off all other drinks. Put your $5 off toward that madness!
647 Valencia St.

Bi-Rite Creamery: Organic, locally made, DELISH ice-cream. When the cravings hit, Uber will be there fast, and BiRite will be there with the craving quencher!

The Roxie Theatre: The oldest movie theatre in San Francisco (over 100 yrs old!), this is a great place to catch an independent or underground flick. Coming soon: TWO, by Albert Brooks & Monica Johnson
