Over in the elite section of San Franciso's Historic Mission District, Pi Bar opened its doors last month. And it's garnering rave reviews. Well, SFGate's Janny Hu liked it, anyway.

The vibe? " More brew pub than pizzeria," while jumping on the dark wood bandwagon. The scene? "Very local. Plenty of Mission hipster types." (Wait, what does "hipster" even mean these days? Aside from a kneejerk response from those outside the 18-to-25-year-old age bracket and folks who intentionally dress down, that is.) Pizzas? "Pies start at $14 for a 15-inch small, plus $2.50 for house-made meats and $1.50 for veggies."

Cheap! Ish.

And the best part of Pi Bar? "The aptly re-named pi*r*squared deal gets you a cheese slice and a pint of beer for, you guessed it, $6.28. It's available during the 3-6 p.m. happy hour," reports Hu.

Pi Bar is at 1432 Valencia St. (at 25th Street). Open 3 p.m. to midnight daily.
