Giants fans and San Francisco residents, we know how pumped you are about your Giants sweeping the first two games of the World Series. And we know you're going to need a place to camp out to watch the next three games against the Detroit Tigers. Fortunately, your neighborhood bars are taking care of that with Giants-themed cocktails, happy hours, and plenty of flat-screens to keep you satisfied.

If you're not going to watch the game at Pete's Tavern (on our list of America's Best Sports Bars), these are the places you should definitely hit up for all of your World Series madness:

Brasserie S&P, Mandarin Oriental
Throughout the World Series, the S&P Brasserie (located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel) will be shaking up a special cocktail in honor of the Giants. The gin and tonic refresher ($16) is made with Rusty Blade Gin, Sensei saffron tonic water, a lemon twist, and a burnt orange peel. No, there aren't any TVs to watch the game on — but you'll feel uber classy as you cheer your home team on.

EPIC Roasthouse
In honor of the World Series, the steak house will be offering two specials for Giants fans. First, they will be offering $2 Anchor Steam (a San Francisco institution) and its lineup of beers every game day all day long. For those looking for a cocktail, there is the "Out of the Park" which features Bulleit rye, St. Germain, Pear Likor, lemon, and a dash of peach bitters. The cocktail is topped with PBR beer and served in a Pilsner glass with a lemon wheel garnish, offering a nice mix of high and low. The cocktail is priced $10. And, if you can't possibly wait any longer after dinner to check in on the game, EPIC’s upstairs bar, Quiver, does have TVs to watch the game.

Oola Restaurant and Bar
We can appreciate a good farm-to-table restaurant getting in on the Giants fanfare. Enjoy a special Giant's menu featuring a "Go Giants" cocktail, offered at the bar and lounge throughout the series. Wear Giants apparel and receive a VIP treat from the bar.

Players Sports Grill & Arcade
If you're needing a traditional sports bar vibe to cheer on the Giants, Players is your best bet. With more than 35 HDTVs and more than 200 sports channels, Players Sports Grill & Arcade has room for dozens of Giants fans to congregate. Grab one of their 15 beers on tap, Players hot wings and potato skins, and settle in.

W San Francisco
If the Giants do make it back to AT&T Park for game six, you can get in on all the action nearby at the W's Living Room Bar. There's two big-screen TVs, San Francisco-made suds on tap (Big Daddy Speakeasy IPA) or by the bottle (Anchor Steam, Speakeasy Prohibition Ale) as well as variety of brews, wines on tap and liquors made right in the Bay Area. Plus, TRACE's executive chef Paul Piscopo has created some gourmet "cracker jacks" for spectators to enjoy.

California Road Trip: From San Francisco to the Oregon Border

While many people take the coastal road from Los Angeles to San Francisco, why stop there? A trip from San Francisco to the Oregon border is really one of the most spectacular drives in the world.

While many people take the coastal road from Los Angeles to San Francisco, why stop there? A trip from San Francisco to the Oregon border is really one of the most spectacular drives in the world. As I make the trek, I see so much jaw-dropping beauty it’s hard to know where to begin. Whether the road opens up for incredible ocean views, snakes through emerald-green hills, ascends or drops around heart-stopping curves, or makes its way through the majesty of some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world, it’s a drive for the ages, with plenty of lovely little towns to stop in for an hour or the night. It’s technically about a 10-hour trip, but I’d suggest leaving much more time, as you’re going to want to stop frequently. Take your time, several days if possible, and enjoy every moment.

Let’s begin at the beginning: the Golden Gate Bridge, which is a great start to any trip. While this is for the most part a journey into the world of natural beauty, we’ll begin at this marvel of man-made beauty. As I drive across this gorgeous bridge, the city behind me, the Marin hills in front, and the water below, I feel a sense of adventure and excitement.

Heading through the low-lying hills of Marin County, the one-and-only Muir Woods and a series of beach towns appear. Ready for lunch? Stop in at Pelican Inn, just before Muir Woods and a short distance down to Muir Beach. You’re less than a half hour from the city, but we’re at the beginning of your “take it easy and go slow” classes, so here’s the first lesson: British food with a California flair. Who ever thought you’d be eating shepherd’s pie nestled between the ocean and lofty coastal redwoods. Two miles later, a stop at Muir Beach Overlook gives me a taste of more wonders to come, as I walk down a long trail dotted by purple and yellow wildflowers to the end of a cliff, seemingly suspended over the craggy coast. I look back, and I’m amazed at just how many shades of green there are in the plants. I look ahead to the pounding of the blue/green water against the jagged swoops of land. It’s the first of many such moments on the trip.

There are more such moments in Point Reyes National Seashore, which contains 71,000 acres spreading over a hundred square miles of bio-diversity. The lighthouse is its most famous landmark, and hopefully by the time you go the restoration of this lonely monument out on an isolated spit of land will be complete. You can choose from among dozens of trails through Douglas fir and open meadows, a visit to Pierce Point Ranch (where several hundred Tule Elk roam around), or of course a stroll along such stretches of sand as Drake’s Beach or Sunset Beach. Birdwatchers have a (pardon the pun) field day here, as this park actually contains over half of the species known in the United States. Flower fanatics come in spring for vast panoramas of lupine, California poppies, and wild irises. Whale watchers flock to the headlands to see these amazing creatures during migration months, while those who can’t be there during the right season can be content with the large populations of California sea lions and harbor seals that reside there. In short, there are worlds to explore in this huge and all-encompassing park, where a short drive brings you from agriculture to wilderness to beautiful coast.

Stop in the nearby Point Reyes Station, which is the epitome of a Marin County town. I love walking down the long main street past shops offering jewelry, basketry, art, and flowers. The one-and-only Toby’s Feed Barn offers just about everything you can imagine, from souvenirs to plants, artwork to agricultural supplies. There’s even a wonderful coffee bar where you can grab an espresso and sit at one of the picnic tables outside to enjoy it among the locals. If you didn’t stop for lunch yet, you might want to visit Cowgirl Creamery and grab some of the renowned cheeses at this woman-owned business. If you plan ahead, you might even find a cheese tasting or community dinner. Even if you don’t, though, do drop in and pick up the triple-cream Mt. Tam or award-winning Red Hawk, along with some baked goods from Bovine Bakery up the street, for a picnic lunch. As you’ll see, we’re about to find some primo picnic locations.

Between Marin and Sonoma Counties, the road actually travels inland for a large portion of the trip, though much of it does go along Tomales Bay, the world-renowned producer of oysters. I drive through tiny towns like Marshall (population 50), past bayside oyster shacks, and through the hills. It’s not until I enter Sonoma County that the road heads back toward the coast. The first town I come to is Bodega Bay, and if it has a familiar air, it might be because Bodega Bay was the location for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. Stroll through some of the gift shops, head down to the harbor for a crab sandwich and delicious clam chowder at Spud Point Crab Co. and have coffee at appealing little Roadhouse Coffee. Then let’s get back on the road, because we’re about to come to one of the most gorgeous drives you’ve ever done.

This Yapping (Mad) Dog Has His Day

Christopher Russo on the air in his studio in midtown Manhattan on Monday afternoon, the day his beloved Giants won the World Series.

Two minutes before he took the air Monday afternoon, Christopher Russo calmly walked into the studio of his Sirius XM show, "Mad Dog Unleashed," carrying a tuna sandwich on rye bread. Not long after, he started to scream, uncoiling his body so violently that his hands ended up above his head, convulsing in tremors. A twisted smile plastered his face.

"Ahhhhhh—good afternoon everybody!" he squealed, getting louder and higher-pitched as he made four words last seven seconds.

Then the talk-radio host known as Mad Dog—or, to his callers, just Dog—began to dance. Bruce Springsteen's "Radio Nowhere" filled the studio. Dog strutted five paces back and forth, performing the riffs with an air guitar, as if he were on stage at the Stone Pony.

"Are you alive?" he bellowed, leaning into the microphone. "Are you alive!" He rolled up his white shirtsleeves and gripped the table in front of him, palms up. By this point, all nine of the station's lines were jammed with listeners phoning in from Merrick, Long Island, to the Bay Area.

This was all because the San Francisco Giants, the team that makes Mr. Russo most rabid, were one win away from celebrating their first World Series of Mr. Russo's life. That night, they would beat the Texas Rangers, and at home, Mr. Russo would jump up and down again, his hands over his head in triumph.

Vieux Carré Cocktail

Named for the French Quarter in New Orleans (a.k.a. the Vieux Carré), this sophisticated, spirits-driven cocktail is a lot like the Big Easy itself: a fun and potent blend of diverse elements.

What to buy: Bénédictine, a gold-colored liqueur first produced by Benedictine monks in the 16th century, adds a sweet, aromatic flavor to cocktails. Peychaud’s Bitters were created in New Orleans around 1830 by the Haitian apothecary Antoine Amédée Peychaud. They’re lighter, sweeter, and have a more floral aroma than angostura. Find both at well-stocked liquor stores.

How Eating Vegan Got Easy: Recipes That Resonate Now

STIR THE POT This comforting peanut stew from YouTube star Rachel Ama has a flexible ingredient list and a delicious mix of spices that fills the kitchen with its aroma.

NEARLY 450,000 FANS subscribe to Rachel Ama’s vegan cooking channel on YouTube. It’s not hard to see why. Appearing in her family kitchen, the Londoner makes up dances, punctuates her jokes with sound effects and cooks brightly colored, approachable food that ranges from vegetable pastas to Caribbean rice and peas. Many of the viewers who email her tell her they’re not vegan. They just like the look of the food.

Ms. Ama’s success—and that of a generation of vegan cookbook authors, social media stars and restaurant chefs—reflects a flourishing of this kind of cooking unimaginable even 20 years ago. The food is visually striking, global and farm-to-table. Its appeal is clear to omnivores. When so many of us are immobilized in our houses, cookbooks like “Rachel Ama’s Vegan Eats,” Bryant Terry’s “Vegetable Kingdom” and Joy Yonan’s “Cool Beans” are top sellers. Perhaps we’re all a little vegan now.

For a raw foodist of the 1910s or an activist vegan punk of the 1980s, to cook without meat, dairy, eggs or honey meant adopting a spartan diet that leaned toward the brown and chewy. But beginning in the 1990s, rumblings of change could be felt at the high end of dining. At Millennium, which opened in San Francisco in 1994, Eric Tucker approached vegan cooking as a creative challenge: Without the flavor props of animal proteins, how could he make vegan food intensely savory? He drew robust flavors from vegetables by caramelizing them, amped up the umami of sauces with miso and dried mushrooms. Still, this kind of cuisine was considered niche.

By the turn of the millennium, other versions of veganism were gaining traction in the U.S. and Britain, influenced by immigrant cooking traditions—spice-rich Jamaican ital cooking, Vietnamese and Chinese Buddhist vegetarian food. And food-justice activists and hip-hop artists were embracing the potential of vegan food to nourish communities where racial and economic disenfranchisement had, historically, taken a toll on health.

Health concerns have been a major driver of the mainstream vegan upswell of the past five years, too. One influential publication based on large-scale epidemiological research, T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II’s 2005 “China Study,” found plant-based diets prevented or reversed heart disease, diabetes and even some cancers.

After serving in Iraq, I discovered a career in bourbon, where I followed distillers and broke news in a category blossoming before my very eyes. This passion led to my bestselling books 'Whiskey Women, Bourbon Curious' and 'Bourbon: The Rise, Fall & Rebirth of An American Whiskey.' Like any business, I diversified my writing portfolio to wine and other spirits, penning the books 'Rum Curious' and 'Mead: The Librations, Legends & Lore of the World’s Oldest Drink.' But my core has always been bourbon, which is why I am the curator for the Bourbon & Beyond Festival and am the editor-in-chief of Bourbon Magazine. I am also a Captain at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and lead a lot of private tastings around the world. But wait, there’s more: As an avid wearer of ascots, I am hopeful in their return in neckwear apparel.

16 Tiki Bars You Have to Visit

The island-inspired cocktails are making a big comeback. Check out these iconic spots plus what to order.

Frankie's Tiki Bar, Las Vegas

Let's be honest, Vegas is known for its excess and Frankie's Tiki Bar embodies that with a Polynesian twist. Pull up a stool, order the Kapu I'A and don't forget to purchase a commemorative glass to take home. Their selection is incredible.

Hale Pele, Portland

Hale Pele is located in the cocktail mecca of Portland. With the volcano theme running throughout the bar, order yourself a Lava Flow. This visual masterpiece is a strawberry variation on the Pina Colada.

Honi Honi, Hong Kong

Lucky enough to find yourself in Hong Kong? Head over to Honi Honi for the authentic tiki experience. Try the Dragon Fire cocktail which is prepared "blazer-style." This means the spirits are warmed and set aflame as the bartender "rolls" (pours) them between two cocktail shakers.

Don the Beachcomber, Huntington Beach

Kokomo, Helsinki

If Anthony Bourdain likes this place, so should you. He visited on No Reservations and rightfully so. It's the first tiki bar in Finland, and the best. Stick with the classics or venture out to one of their original works.

Beach Bum Barry's Latitude 29, New Orleans

It's hard to select only one place to visit when you go to New Orleans. But the arguable cocktail capital of the U.S. has this brilliant bar. "Choosing a favorite at Latitude 29 is not an easy task," says Ann Tuennerman, co-founder of the famous Tales of the Cocktail festivals. "You really can’t go wrong up and down the menu. But if you pushed me to pick just one, I’d say the Pontchartrain Pearl Diver."

Mahiki, London

"Mahiki is a tropical escape from reality in Mayfair London. The closest you can get to holiday in Hawaii without a plane ticket," says Georgi Radev of the Spirit of Tiki Team in the United Kingdom. Check out their signature drink: the Honolulu Honey featuring Honey Cream.

Maikai, Ft. Lauderdale

With epic Hawaiian stage shows, you are in for a treat at this Florida hot spot. The owners recommend the Black Magic cocktail featuring coffee and rum flavors.

Otto's Shrunken Head, New York City

NYC has hundreds of bars but Otto's Shrunken Head is the…head…of the class. Kelly and Paul from the Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en Show know their tiki and recommend the namesake cocktail, Otto's Shrunken Head. "Great downtown vibe, friendly folks, fabulous decor and delicious (strong) drinks."

Porco's, Cleveland, Ohio

Cleveland has extraordinary bars that are under the radar on the national scene. "One of my favorite drinks ever is the Jungle Bird," says Shane McGrath, president of the Greater Detroit U.S. Bartender's Guild. You'll adore the beautifully decorated bar and patio at this Midwest tiki treasure.

Shameful Tiki, Toronto and Vancouver

Spanning the Canadian coasts, with Vancouver and Toronto locations, is Shameful Tiki. If you dare, order the Mystery Bowl. The drink requires two or more imbibers and comes with a fair warning and lots of hoopla.

Smuggler's Cove, San Francisco

One of the modern kings of tiki is Smuggler's Cove in San Francisco. Camper English, founder of, recommends the Jet Pilot. With a gorgeous bar like this, you can't go wrong with your selection. Grab their new book on the way out and bring some tiki home with you.

Three Dots and A Dash, Chicago

Every night this bar is organized chaos with lines wrapped around the building and energy-pumping music. It's not your typical tiki bar. Yet the drinks speak for themselves. Order a Chief Lapu Lapu, for you and your friends, off their delightfully retro menu.

Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, Disneyland and Walt Disney World

Trader Vic's, Emeryville, California

Jungle Boy, Melbourne

A speakeasy-style tiki bar is the clever combo you find in Melbourne with Jungle Boy. You have to enter through the secret entrance in a sub shop and the bar only seats 40, so be patient if you can't get in this popular spot. Try the Zombie with an "American" style sub.

THEN AND NOW: What 11 of MTV's most well-known 'Real World' stars are up to

When the first season of "The Real World" aired back in 1992, viewers were glued to their televisions, watching a group of unknown twenty-somethings who were thrown together in a New York loft and told to "stop being polite and start getting real." After 26 years and 32 seasons, "The Real World" has left its fingerprint on popular culture and paved the way for countless other reality series.

It's easy to fall in love or despise the characters you watch fight, fall in love, and drink (a lot) each week. But what happens to them after the cameras stop rolling?

While some of "The Real World" alums went back to their hometowns and resumed their normal lives, others used the show as a platform to launch themselves into the spotlight. If you've ever wondered what happened to some of your favorite housemates from the iconic reality series, read on to find out where they are.

15 Hulu Original Series to Binge-Watch Right Now

There are plenty of shows to watch on the streaming service, but its original series are some of the best on the web today.

If you&rsquore only using Hulu to rewatch every episode of ER, you&rsquore missing out. In addition to hosting the archives of beloved TV shows and airing new episodes of current ones from major networks, the web-based streaming platform also produces its own award-winning original series in a variety of genres. From true crime limited series to episodic coming-of-age comedies to dramatic miniseries adapted from best selling novels, Hulu likely has a show to binge for whatever mood you&rsquore in at the moment. To help you narrow down your choices, here are some of the best Hulu originals shows to stream right now. Oh, and if you don't have Hulu, click here to sign up for a free trial.

This 12-part miniseries is based on the 2018 novel by the Irish author Sally Rooney. As Marianne and Connell navigate their final year of high school in Country Sligo, they begin an on-again-off-again relationship that continues through their time at Trinity College in Dublin. For anyone who has experienced young romance and its volatile moments, Normal People is equal parts relatable and heart-breaking.

This 2020 reimagining of the Nick Hornby novel stars Zoe Kravitz in the role popularized by John Cusack in the 2000 romcom of the same name. Instead of playing a lovelorn record shop owner in Chicago, like the movie, Kravitz plays a record shop owner in Crown Heights, Brooklyn who tries to figure out why her past relationships failed. Hulu modernized some aspects of the story, but it is just as charming as the movie you know and love. So far, there&rsquos just the 10 episodes of season 1 to watch, but Hulu hasn&rsquot said no to a second season yet.

The winner of multiple Emmys and Golden Globe awards, this adaptation of Margaret Atwood&rsquos dystopian science fiction novel is one of the original series that put Hulu on the map. Now with three seasons, the show has moved beyond the book&rsquos plot but still centers around life in the former United States after fertility rates are decimated and women capable of giving birth are held as slaves. Elisabeth Moss stars as one of these &ldquoHandmaids,&rdquo as they&rsquore called, who is assigned to the home of one of the regime&rsquos commanders. A fourth season has been ordered, but production was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Based on the 2005 novel by John Green, Looking For Alaska is an eight-part miniseries from Josh Schwartz, the same showrunner behind The O.C. The teen drama follows Miles &ldquoPudge&rdquo Halter as he starts an exciting new life at the Culver Creek Boarding School in Alabama. There, he meets his roommate Chip &ldquoThe Colonel&rdquo Martin and falls quickly in love with Alaska Young, an enigmatic young woman.

Based on the 2017 Celeste Ng novel and released as an eight-part miniseries in March 2020, Little Fires Everywhere is about two moms&mdashElena Richardson (Reese Witherspoon) and Mia Warren (Kerry Washington)&mdashfrom different backgrounds raising their children in Shaker Heights, Ohio. The fires in the title refers to the burning of the Richardson&rsquos home that happens at the very beginning of the series, but the show is more about motherhood, race, and mistrust than a strict whodunit. Not surprisingly, it&rsquos earned comparisons to Big Little Lies, HBO&rsquos award-winning drama that also stars Witherspoon and hits on somewhat similar topics.

Created by Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, PEN15 is about two best friends navigating the 7th grade in the year 2000. This comedy is just as cringy as it is funny, especially because Erskine and Konkle&mdashwho were both born in 1987&mdashplay fictionalized versions of their middle school selves opposite actual 13 year olds. The show tackles issues of insecurity, peer pressure, and puberty all just as awkwardly as you remember it.

Ramy Youssef, an Egyptian-American stand-up comic, won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Ramy Hassan in the first season of this Hulu original series. The comedy is a fictionalized version of Youssef&rsquos real life as he navigates the challenges of growing up Muslim in America.

After growing apart after a friend&rsquos death, a group of six teenagers are brought back together when they realize their parents are part of Pride, a villainous enterprise that carries out ritual sacrifices of humans. Part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Runaways has three seasons on Hulu which aired between 2017 and 2019, which will likely be all we get as Marvel begins to consolidate its shows by only launching new series through Disney+.

Saturday Night Live&rsquos Aidy Bryant stars in this Hulu original series about a young woman attempting to launch her career as a journalist, while trying to find love and maintain healthy relationships with her friends and parents. The one thing she is not trying to do is change her body, despite what the rest of the world wants her to think. Shot on location in Portland, Oregon, the show has received rave reviews for its depiction of self love and acceptance. It aired its second season in January 2020 and Hulu has already renewed it for a third season.

Launched in 2004, this drama starring Kristen Bell as a teen private investigator in the fictional seaside town of Neptune, California ended up being cut short after only three seasons. Thanks to a dedicated fan base, the show&rsquos creator was able to bring the beloved show back as a feature film in 2014. Hulu picked the show up for a fourth and final season in 2019. Set more than a decade after the original series wrapped, the show brings back favorite characters like Logan, Wallace, and Weevil as Veronica and her dad Keith try solve the mystery who is responsible for the bombings terrorizing their town.

With three seasons under its belt, Harlots is one of Hulu&rsquos most critically acclaimed original shows even though it receives a fraction of the buzz of hyped up series like The Handmaid&rsquos Tale. But all the more reason to pay attention to this whip smart period drama set in the brothels of 18th century London. The plot centers around two rival madams trying to protect their lucrative businesses. It&rsquos lurid and campy, but also feminist and empowering.

Patricia Arquette won both a best supporting actress Emmy and a Golden Globe award for her portrayal of Dee Dee Blanchard in Hulu&rsquos true crime drama The Act. The eight-part series tells the real story of how Dee Dee Blanchard, a woman who likely had Munchausen syndrome by proxy, abused her daughter Gypsy Rose Blanchard (Joey King) into thinking she suffered from multiple illnesses when in fact she was perfectly healthy. After discovering this lie, Gypsy asks her boyfriend to kill her mom, a crime for which the real Gypsy is still serving a prison sentence today.

This 20 episode docu-series follows the lives of sports mascots from the high school and college levels to the minor and major leagues. Through the two seasons you get to know what it&rsquos like in and out of the suit for mascots like Lou Seal of the San Francisco Giants&rsquo baseball team and Bango the Buck for the Milwaukee Bucks NBA team.

This dark comedy starring Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner ran for three seasons on Hulu starting in 2015. The pair plays essentially what are fictionalized versions of themselves: Two comedians in New York who seem to hate everyone but each other. The series earned comparisons to Seinfeld during its run because of how self-absorbed, unlikable, but ultimately hilarious the main characters are.

Instead of being based on one Stephen King novel, Castle Rock&mdashnamed after the town in Maine where it is set&mdashbrings together themes and elements across King&rsquos canon as well as featuring actors who have starred in other adaptations of his work. You&rsquoll recognize Sissy Spacek from Carrie and Bill Skarsgard from It, though they play new characters here. So far there are two seasons streaming on Hulu and the series is pending renewal for a third.
