Best Excuse to Eat Carne Asada Before 11 a.m. on a Sunday

ACME Bar's Meat Shake

On weekends, you have the option of upgrading ACME Bar's already delicious Bloody Mary into a "meat shake." This means that, in addition to a few skewers of whatever garnishes the bartender decided to stack his or her station with that day — chunks of pepperjack cheese, pickles, or peppers, for example — the meat shake is also topped with a skewer of two pieces of salty, umami-rich carne asada. The drink is already a meal in a glass, but the meat ups the ante even more. It's worth noting that the meatless Bloody Mary is already among the best in the East Bay, with just the right amount of spice. You probably weren't looking for another reason to day-drink on the weekends, but if you were, now you have one.
