If you work in the Financial District and are currently avoiding work while trying to figure out where to go for happy hour on this fine sunny Friday, you're in luck. Per Diem (43 Sutter Street), the new bar/restaurant from The Brick Yard boys, is open for the first time ever today. Happy is from 3 p.m to 6 p., so you might as well just call it a day and head over now.
Also open right this very moment, in the Ferry Building, is Prather Ranch's meat-centric takeout joint, America Eatery. Stop by for an early dinner or check it out tomorrow while you shop the weekend farmers market.
