Sure, our San Francisco Giants are all but assured of missing the playoffs in 2011, hordes of true Giants fans came out in droves and proudly sported their finest orange and black threads, paying tribute to The Beard, The Freak, and the rest of our Jints at Brick Yard last night for the Let's Go Giants Rally Cap Pep Rally Yelp Elite Event. Brick Yard is a neighborhood sports bar and lounge in the Marina, which boasts rustic brick and redwood throughout and offers healthy organic California cuisine.
Yelpers clad in Giants garb were able to watch classic baseball movies while sampling Brick Yard's colorful array of organic bites. An-Nhien applauded the plentiful and amazing Shrimp and Corn ceviche seasoned with fresh guacamole and jalapeno as well as Brick Yard's Butter Lettuce Cups full of juicy chicken, crisp celery, raisins, cherries, grapes and yogurt. George A couldn't get enough of the ribs, marveling at their mind-blowing crispy outside. Julia D's dad was also smitten with them and described them as "buffalo wings, but ribs."
Not only was piquant food flowing throughout the evening, but the drinks packed a punch as well. Sailor Jerry and Hendrick's Gin represented with delicious cocktails such as "The Bomb" and "The Gigantes," all served in hip stainless steel Sailor Jerry take-away cocktail mugs.
At the end of the night, yelpers posed for fun photographs by Brick Yard's massive back wall Golden Gate bridge themed mural and three lucky costume winners walked away with a ridiculously huge tote-bag full of Sailor Jerry swag, including bottle openers, buttons, tote bags, and stylish (and coveted!) pirate tees.
