Happy hour spots in San Francisco

This map marks my second foray into the map-making field, preceded by the map of outdoor eating places below. Not too surprisingly, this map also involves food and liquor! Although, unlike its sister below, this map concerns itself with identifying establishments that have happy hour and what those specials are. This came about when I was driving around with friends around 4pm the other day and we spontaneously decided to go hit up somewhere for happy hour. We originally wanted to go to a sushi happy hour but no one could think of one, and a sudden assault upon our cell phones to produce one came up fruitless. We eventually ended up going to Palomino, which has a great happy hour!

Since beginning this map I've been informed of the existence of MappyHour, a website that purports to do the same thing but on a worldwide scale, complete with a very slick and clever interface. I've noticed that a lot of the establishments listed on their map actually don't have any happy hour listed and it seems to focus more on just bars than bars and restaurants, which is more what I'm after. It is, however, a great site and very well-done. If you have any suggestions for additions please let me know!
