My god this weather is shitty! Call it climate change, call it armageddon, call it much-needed manna from the heavens but just call it off!

With the perpetual deluges we've been receiving lately it's not crazy to want to crawl under the covers and never come out. Especially since our two modes of forecast ping-pong back and forth between torrential downpour and 90-degree sauna. However, rather than attempting to avoid the unavoidable, what better excuse to hole up in a hole in the wall – just do it quick so that you can tell your boss and family that the rain and road closures forced you into it.



Here's a list of some local bars in which to escape the Great Flood 2.0.

Timbo's 

This humble burger joint with an incredible jukebox and modest beverage selection is the perfect place to escape the rain ... and the Pearl crowd. It's located right off of Broadway, backed up to the shopping center and possesses $2 draft Miller High Life and $2.50 pours of Shiner, Miller Lite, Alamo Golden Ale and Bud Light. They've also got $2 bottles of Pearl, Michelob Ultra, Dos XX, Blue Moon, Shiner Bock and Bohemia. For the easy-to-please wine drinker white zin, chardonnay and cabernet are $3.75. Timbo's, 1639 Broadway,

Concrete Jungle

This tiki-themed craft cocktail bar is the perfect faux-beach getaway. Complete with straw huts, human-sized tiki decor and a patio to watch the rain, it's the ideal spot to hide out and get sloshed, complete with miniature umbrella. Concrete Jungle, 1628 S. Presa St., (210) 373-9907
