I forgot to ask: Does this mean you will be the primary bartender, Martiki, or are you only putting the menu together?



No, Mike, Mano & I are all owners and I will be the manager. Rest assured that the bartenders will be top of their class and will know precisely what to do.

Wow - I'd better start donating to the highway patrol retirement fund now to help me get back to the south bay after the many great evenings I hope to enjoy there w/ my tiki pals.
Congratulations to all 3 of you and Martin thanks for the fine beverage the other night.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, but according to MapQuest this is

Total Est. Time: 2 minutes Total Est. Distance: 0.47 miles

From my office.

I think I'll go walk by now!

This is such fantastic news! And to think, how fortunate it is that it will be so close to where I live! Looks like I'd better get the guest bedroom in order (and see if I can get my home bar finished as well).

Tell me about it!

The many tikiphiles in Alameda are lucky ducks.


Indeed!

We're planning on spending enough time there to become honorary Alameda citizens.


You're gonna have to learn the Alameda secret handshake. That, and re-learn how to pronounce Versailles and Buena Vista. Or just end up moving here.

Ok...that's very cool. A 10 minute walk from my desk to the front door.

Great location! Can't wait to see what you guys do with the place.

zazzzz!!!

i HOPE I'm not jumping the gun a little bit, but the reason that the SF Crawl was pushed back to summer this year is to work on a plan to visit the new tiki places in the SF area plus the old faves. SOOO, the powers that be needed MUCH more time to plan the event, and I am here to announce that this years SF Crawl will be TEN STRAIGHT DAYS to fit in all the tiki exisiting in the SF area!!!





Just kidding!

Congratulations indeed!! That is great news. Too bad it is so far from LA or I would visit before or after the Tiki Oasis this year. Oh, well it'll have to wait till a San Francisco trip. Good luck on you venture!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Alameda was already Tiki Island once Otto and Baby Doe moved there, then Monica Tiki Goddess and I moved in downstairs from them, plus my pal Eddie Muller (Noir City) lives on the island and has his own backyard tiki bar, plus...IT'S AN ISLAND!
And it's staggering distance from the Thrill-Tiki Von Stroheim/Viharo Pad! Now I'll have a reason to actually leave my house!

WARNING: Alameda cops are like Fairfax cops (home of Vise Grip's) - not much to do. My wife actually got stopped recently for riding her bike through a crosswalk. That's how bored they are (which is good, really, compared to Oakland where you could ride your bike through crosswalks all day and they wouldn't notice unless you shot up a few pedestrians while you were at it, and even then....). Not to throw a wet blanket on the excitement, but as a resident, I feel it's my duty to warn you: don't drive over 25MPH (I mean like not even 30) before or after you hit the Webster Tube or the Park St. bridge (the bar is pretty much in between.)Otherwise, this is pure perfection. Congrats, kids, Otto and I look forward to helping out with the promotions and maybe hosting a few events.

What kind of drinks would it have?

I will go to Alameda! (especially if there's a Puka Punch involved)

Harry S. Midnite (or was that MacArthur?)

ps Something seemed fishy last night, and it wasn't just that Bong Bongo soup flashback nightmare I had.

pps where's Alameda?
