The Riptide's New Year's Plunge: Dive Fearlessly Into 2013


Tuesday Jan 1, 2013 (noon–1pm)


Ocean Beach

Taraval St at Great Highway




Hailing itself as "the Bay Area's best little honky-tonk by the beach," the Riptide has a number of particularly alluring qualities going for it: a hunting lodge-type feel (complete with mounted moose head), an expansive brick hearth, hearty bar drinks, a comfort food menu, and a regular lineup of boot-stomping bluegrass/folksy live acts — all mere steps from the foamy waves of Ocean Beach. All of these factors mash together into one potentially beautiful New Year's Day afternoon as the Riptide invites you to plunge fearlessly into 2013, and not just in the metaphorical sense. At noon, gather your courage, your friends, your balls, whatever might help you in your quest to submerge yourself in the frigid waters of the Pacific Ocean in January. Then reward yourself with a $10 souvenir shirt, a round of back-pounding, and a restorative drink by the Riptide's roaring fire.
