A few deals for your liquid consumption radar: first, ~ONE MARKET~ is offering $2 martinis during lunch on weekdays. All you have to do is buy a lunch entrée. Limit two per person (no three-martini lunch for you, babe).

~RISTOBAR~ in the Marina has launched a new brunch menu, with $4 mimosas and Bellinis (brunch is Sat-Sun 11am-3pm).

And FiDi workers should know that the ~ROYAL EXCHANGE~ is celebrating its 40th anniversary next week (August 27th-31st). Guests will be able to eat and drink at 1972 prices: $2 Bud or Bass Ale on draft, $4 martinis or Manhattans, along with $4 roast beef or turkey sandwiches, and $3 hot dogs. And on Friday August 31st, you can order $2 well drinks and beer specials (8pm-10pm). Go crazy.

And good news for ~THE ICE CREAM BAR~ in Cole Valley: they finally got their beer and wine license. Check out the menu here—the “adult” beverages will be available as of Friday, like the Peaches and Dreams (Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale, peach syrup, five-spice tincture, cream, acid phosphate). FYI, since this is a preliminary menu, the fountain drinks on the “remedies” menu will be in the $9-$14 range. There will also be sherries and ports.
