Unless, of course, you have access to a bar that appears to be engineered as the living room you so richly deserve...
Introducing The Brick Yard Restaurant & Bar, your newest hangout that encompasses the trifecta of creature comforts: game watching, upscale pub food and beer, opening Saturday morning in Cow Hollow.
Fortuitously opening in time for this weekend's festivities on Union Street, this is where you'll want to go to kick things off at 10am with a pint from the 24-deep list and pork sliders as a prelude to the block-by-block beer gardens that await.
And since the whole exposed-brick, tufted-leather and wood filled place looks like it was plucked from your living room, you may find yourself returning to watch games (their flat-screens are bigger than yours), nosh on chorizo pizza and pretend that the bartender is your personal beer robot.
Post-dinner, there's the lounge with a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge towards the back that's ideal for unwinding—scotch in hand—in one of a dozen leather club chairs by the pool table. Or opt for a spot on the heated outdoor patio overlooking Union Street for the rest of the night.
The festivities might be winding down by then.
