SUPER EGO: A jaunt through the TL and Union Square's most dangerously divey splashdowns

Don't bogart that dirty! Martinis won't be the only things that are tipsy after a jaunt through downtown's dives

RJ's Sports Bar (701 Geary): Korean women behind the bar (it seems to be Bush corridor de rigueur) who speak excellent Spanish and have incredible dance moves (don't ask me how I know, but this was the biggest surprise of all). Another bar that allows indoor smoking, despite a sticker, in plain sight, that contradicts such actions. A man came in and requested that the bartender fill up his empty Gatorade bottle with Anchor Steam for $5, and without a second thought, that call was answered.

High Tide Lounge (600 Geary): Free food ranging from kimchi, chicken wings, and sushi rolls to stuffed peppers, pad Thai, chow mein, and something that resembled an egg roll but looked more like a snuffed out cigar. I didn't ask questions. In the midst of our revels, we happened upon a petite woman taking a little catnap in the corner of the bar. Despite sleeping on a cold linoleum floor, she looked quite peaceful. Definitely not dead, though ... we checked her pulse.

I saw you and your douchebag friends out at these places that night. Maybe if you didn't block the doorways and act like complete idiots you would find most patrons to be normal neighborhood folks. Do us all a favor and stick to your hipster bars.
