As San Franciscans try to understand what the words "fall wardrobe" really mean, a quick PSA to remind that drinking never goes out of style. Here, there are seasonal cocktails, classic drinks, bartenders that mad dog your booze requests, and those who will gleefully jabber on about market-fresh syrups and housemade tinctures for hours. Eater has culled through the best and the worst of them, bringing you the Eater Bar Heatmap. Consider it your back-pocket guide to the new and old essential bars of San Francisco. As always, state your proposed additions and subtractions in the comments, or send us a good old-fashioned email.
