Plus: Buy two, get one drinks in the Castro, and a cider celebration in Oakland.


CENTRAL SUNSET—The underserved insomniacs of 19th Avenue now have an all-night convenience option in Loop, which features both the standard offerings (Doritos, sodas, candy) and some higher-end stuff (froyo, fresh fruit, wine). They also have coffee and free wi-fi. [Hoodline]

CASTRO—Remember that whole Game of Thrones-themed cocktail menu that Blackbird whipped up for the winter? If you want to try it out at home to impress your holiday party guests, here are three of the recipes (including the Milk of the Poppy and Mother of Dragons). [Mother]

CASTROCafe UB, the artist formerly known as Urban Bread, is doing a hot drink promotion for the holidays: they'll give you a punch card where every third drink (including Ritual coffee and espresso, Steven Smith teas, and hot cocoa) is on the house. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND—A Cider Celebration is in order for the holidays at The Half Orange, featuring six great ciders that beer-loving owner Jay Porter sussed out in a recent tasting. They range from local (Tilted Shed) to international (Eric Bordelet) and run the gamut of styles, from off-dry to semi-sweet to bourbon barrel aged. Tomorrow only, they'll all go for half-off, all day long. [EaterWire]
