Dollar Oyster Happy Hours in SF?

I am on a hunt to find all of the dollar oyster happy hours in San Francisco.

So far I know about The Grand Cafe on Geary: 3-7 M-F, The Elite Cafe on Fillmore: 4-6 every day, B Restaurant on Howard (not sure of the time and days) and the Hog Island Oyster Co in the Ferry Building: Mon and Thurs 5-7.

I've done some internet searches and the results can be elusive. I thought I'd turn to the experts for some additional suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

      Thanks, this link will keep me busy for awhile! I guess I need to search "$1" not "dollar" going forward.

        No problem -- someone told me the best way to use the admittedly lame search function was to keep it to one word if poss so I used oyster. BTW I noticed that the 2nd to last entry references Jeanty at Jack's, which I believe is now closed...

          Thank you. Yes I definitely call ahead of time to make sure the venue is still open and the happy hour still stands. I spent one afternoon searching around the Tenderloin/nob going on one-year-old information for a restaurant that had since closed and learned that lesson the hard way.

    2. Neither Grand nor Elite are on the list on that previous exhaustive thread. Thanks!

        Sure! I have been to both in the last couple of weeks and Grand has better drink specials, along with other small, quality dishes for the non-oyster eaters in your party or to supplement your oyster order. There were two oyster varieties, and both were very small, but quite delicious.

        Elite has only beer on happy hour, wine by the glass is more expensive, starts at I think $7 and not too tasty for the cheap stuff. Only oysters on happy hour. There were two types, both small but delicious. Then there were about four or five other types of oysters on sale for $2 each.
