Eggnog Martinis, Underground Market and Late-Night Indian Burritos
The weekend is this close.
Kasa Opens Sequel in the Marina
Now you have two options when the craving for Indian burritos (kati rolls) strikes. Expect all that's great about the Castro outpost in a bigger space where you can also get Indian sangria, and linger until 2am on weekends.
12 Days of Xmas Cocktails at One Market
Technically, the Twelve Days of Christmas don't start until the 25th, but instead of putting off a good thing, the folks at One Market are starting the holiday drinking early with a daily rotation of 12 cocktails. Each day features a deal on a different cocktail, like Friday's Eggnog Martini for $6 or Hot Buttered Rum next week for $2.
