Starting this July, Rickhouse in San Francisco will offer a summer drink menu, because apparently the fifty cocktails on the regular menu are all seasonally inappropriate. (I kid!)
The regular menu isn't online, so those of you reading from out of town an get a glimpse of how it looks with its tiki bar-reminiscent descriptors (and low prices).
Note: Root beer and absinthe! Again!
