Bullitt Bar Oct/Nov Mondays to Benefit Bread & Roses

Enjoy Good Cheer, Food & Drink – Bullitt Mondays to Benefit Bread & Roses

What better way to start out the week than to get together with friends and enjoy your favorite drink and some Monday night football at one of the trendiest new lounge bars in San Francisco? What if you could do that, while at the same time giving back to your community? Well, you can!

Join us at Bullitt on Monday nights in October and November and 10% of all your purchases will go to Bread & Roses. This three-year old Nob Hill bar, located at 2209 Polk Street between Green and Vallejo, is named after the famous action movie starring Steve McQueen, and has been described by the SF Thrillist as “a bar that McQueen would want to hang out in;” that is: hip, yet unpretentious with a good selection of whiskey and beer for relatively low prices.

Our many thanks go out to bar owner, Duncan Ley for making this benefit possible – being a caring community partner is what makes Bullitt so special, and we look forward to future collaboration. Please check out Bullitt on Facebook for more info.
