Her choice for happy hour: After work, my coworkers and I like to head to MICHAEL MINA for the Ahi tuna tartare at the bar and an “On the Whim” cocktail – best $20 you’ll ever spend at a bar in SF! The tartare is a classic, and the bartenders are mindreaders when it comes to creating the perfect cocktail you’re craving that evening.
