Soo, I'm turning 21 this Monday, and I want to look for a great bar for my first "real" drink.
I'm NOT looking to get hammered! What I'm looking for is a bar that produces great cocktails and has a diverse selection of beer (BF is a big IPA fan). I was hoping to find a place that makes a good Old Fashioned or Negroni, since I wanted to have something classic first.
So far, I was thinking Blackbird or Social Kitchen & Brewery.
Since I'm obviously not a barhopper, I'm hoping you knowledgeable Bay Area chowhounds can help me celebrate my birthday in style. :)
Also, quick question: how much do you tip for a drink?
