Check out discounts before wetting your whistle

Thirsty for a break from holiday shopping or even just the holidays? You can get $1 off drinks at 111 Minna or Madrone Art Bar if you live in the Bay Area.

Those are just two examples of discounts available on a list Shop SF offers to Bay Area shoppers if they flash their bartender, barista, chef, retailer etc. with a local zip code.

The City launched the shop local campaign in 2008. It also offers discounts at museums, hotels and a bunch of other places.

Check it out.

But you only have until the end of the year to get a $1 off that drink; that’s when the promotions are over.
