In homage to the institution of Wednesdays at Tiki-Ti in Los Angeles, we'd love to start spending Monday nights at the San Francisco Trader Vic's. Mondays work great, because Martiki tends bar that night, and like Wednesdays at Tiki-Ti, it's a slow night and we'll get the run of the place. Also, unlike weekend nights, we're more likely to have Mondays free on a regular basis.

So! Starting tonight, Hanford & I are going to be hanging out at the bar at Trader Vic's in San Francisco on Monday nights. I think the happy hour goes from 4-6:30, we'll probably try to catch the tail end of that, and we'll hang around until we're good & ready to go home. Might be a couple hours, might be all night, hard to say. Come on by & join us if you can!

Ditto!

I think we can actually make it. Probably more like sevenish due to rush hour avoidance techniques, although on the other hand we might just leave earlier instead.

I mean, we're bored. It's been far too long since we had any fun.

Alohabros, you have been posting FOR OVER A YEAR and all you can say is "super". I think you meant to say ZAZZ!!!

It looks like I won't make it tonight. I am getting behind at work and need to get caught up. I should have gone to work on the weekend but I missed the bus.

Next week for sure.

Not only was it zazz, it was easy! Traffic from the South Bay was a breeze, and there was parking available on the street (though we didn't notice until after we'd handed the car over to the valet -- dangit!). Turns out the happy hour goes from 3:30-6, and we got there just as happy hour was ending. Thankfully, the not-very-relaxing modern latin jazz (it's not bad music, it just isn't very conducive to the sort of no-contact-massage experience walking into a good tiki bar can be) was quickly swapped out for some much more suitable Mai Kai Gents. The cocktails were truly top-notch -- Trader Vic's generally has fairly reliable quality, but Martin somehow manages to still go one better and make these cocktails perfectly. It's clear that he's really enjoying his time behind the bar at Trader Vic's -- every other group at the bar got the same care and consideration from Martin that we did. And, of course, the company was fab -- thanks for coming out, mrsmiley, tikivixen & Bill! Mig & his better half tried to join us, but got hung up at work -- they'll join us next week, hopefully. We left just as the second happy hour was starting, at 10 -- perhaps in the future we'll manage to hit both happy hours!

See you next Monday!

Martiki,
Do you take job apply for bartenders in your place ? I'm so jealous about all of you having a tiki bar (and not a lousy one) where you can go every week...

I told Martiki that ALL the Vic's need to hire qualified TC folks to staff their bars nightly - and see how their revenue will go up!!

As part of my new health regimen, I will be there every Monday for my therapeutic Painkiller. Thank you Martin!!! it doesn't get better than that.

Oddly, we too had perhaps the quickest and easiest trip into SF ever. And, er, we also failed to notice the ample street parking. Whoopsie. NEXT time fer shure.

All in all, a wonderfully low-key, relaxing, tasty evening. But I do vote for bridging those happy hours when we're not so Huki-hooptied out. I am impressed by the really tony swankiness of the new Vic's. I also feel faintly unworthy . I don't think I could walk in there un-dressed-up.

Hope more folks can join us next week...we'll party in the Queen Kamanawannaleiya room!! snort
