This is the view from the Presidio Yacht Club. Yes, it's the actual view. Note the sunglasses and gloves in the foreground. This place has tasty burgers, fine beers, and the most unbelievable view. And it's a dump.
I mean that in a good way. I love dives. It's like any bar in Nordeast except it has a really, really nice view--oh, and four burgers and fries with eight beers will set you back less than $75 sans tip.
The other nice thing about it is you can do this super cool ride to the Marin Headlands rolling across the Golden Gate Bridge, climbing Hawk Hill, zooming down to Rodeo Beach, and then screaming back through the tunnel to the bar. If the road isn't to your taste there is some tasty single-track about 3/4 of a mile up the hill after you have crossed the bridge
If you are visiting San Francisco you must ride to this bar. They have a web site. Look it up. Call ahead. When we rolled in they had opened early for a friend which turned out nice for us. We knew they opened at 4 pm and we rolled in at 3:20 in hopes they were open and they were. Picture taken December 18th, 2009.
Don't say I never did nothin' for ya.
