I am looking for an unfancy spot that can accomodate a dozen or so - we don't need to sit together, so no private room or big table is necessary - nearby the San Francisco Motorcycle Club (the vicinity of Folsom & 18th on the edge of the Mission). Lots of people will be coming from outside the area so something specifically San Franciscan would be great. Originally I wanted to cram a bunch of people into Pearl Oyster Bar but that's too far away. Burritos? Taco truck crawl? I dunno. Any ideas are appreciated. Must be walking / stumbling distance. We are not fancy people, so nothing dressy.
After our evening group event at the Motorcycle Club we were planning on Nihon Whiskey Lounge or Medjool's roof (i know the food is nothing special, but they take big groups without a reservation and the roof is nice) for late-night eats and drinks. Anything else around there that I should know about?
