Cecil's been closed for a while now, and the #5's a dump. Been years since I hit the peeler bars, but the Penthouse and Brandi's are still considered the standards IIRC. Brandi's is actually the place where Ben Affleck was nailed by the paparazzi and apparently led to breaking up him and Jennifer Lopez, if you're a trivia buff.
Giants tickets should be easily available on a walk-up basis. Hit their website and reserve ahead if you're dead set on getting good seats, though. There is always the small risk of them getting a good crowd on the weekends. Not sure if the Hastings Racecourse is still going around then; if it is, you could throw down a few bets on the ponies before the game, walk the 30 feet over to the old Pacific Mausoleum, watch the Giants while basking in the glory of decades of accumulated Canuck mediocrity, then hit the bars. Just a suggestion.
