Trick Dog's Newest Menu

Trick Dog has come up with its most esoteric menu yet. This Mission cocktail bar with its wildly creative, themed menus (changes every 6 months), takes us on a trip back in time to the late 60’s and 70’s. Fellow Tomatoes, I hope you will remember the iconic counterculture manual, the “Whole Earth Catalog”, because their take on this “rag” is called ‘The Whole Dog Menu” and it will bring back memories and make you smile.

It was essentially a magazine filled with recommendations for tools for hippies, geared towards commune-dwellers and promoting self-sufficiency. The categories within, mimicked in Trick Dog’s menu, covered topics like “Shelter and Land Use,” “Community,” and “Nomadics.” Cocktails in the menu fall into those categories as well, with drinks like the Commune Life, Serendipity, Intelligent life in the universe – you get the picture. Like the original Whole Earth Catalog, the Whole Dog Menu features essays, including one from author Rita Bullwinkel, and students at 826 Valencia, the nonprofit that aids students in writing skills.

Like all of its previous menus, the Whole Dog Menu will be available for purchase ($25) with proceeds supporting the Bon Vivants Scholarship . Check out the whole, wacky thing when you visit.
