While traipsing around San Francisco, running errands and popping into open houses (what? it’s okay to look), we managed to work up a little appetite. So, we stopped in for brunch at The Tipsy Pig to grab a quick bite. I have to say the name drew me in, but the menu is what got me to agree to stay.
To me, this place was like a grown up sports bar. There were plenty of other restaurants and bars nearby that were filled with loud SF fans… and I really can’t be bothered with that. The Tipsy Pig still had all the games on their several scattered TV’s, but I didn’t have to worry about a drunk jersey clad fool falling into my breakfast.
Speaking of booze, I don’t drink beer, but I could be persuaded with the way they named their sizes: Piglet (10oz), Pint (15oz), and Tipsy Pig (20oz). How cute is that? Oh, and apparently, they have a pretty extensive selection of beers for those of you who are interested. Instead I opted for a Mary Pig (bloody Mary) and my dining compadre tested out the root beer float (an adult beverage version). Both were delicious.
For our midday snack, we ordered the Pig’s Almost Famous Smoked Bacon Mac and Cheese (it was good… but I’ve had better) and the Pulled Pork Sloppy Joe to share. I was pleasantly surprised with the pulled pork and for a great recipe to try at home, click here.
So what would be a great outfit for a day of strolling and shopping? An outfit that won’t get you thrown out of an open house, but will still be comfortable when you curl up in a booth with a bloody Mary? I love colored skinny corduroys and a snuggly sweater. Throw a big fringe bag over your shoulder and wedge booties (still the height without the pain) and you’re good to go.

Everybody’s gettin’ tipsy.
