"Trannihunes!"

Unfortunately I am extremely sick, so no cocktails tonight. Grrr. I hate viruses. Sorry to miss y'all, but hope to maybe make it at least to the Conga for a bit tomorrow...

Thanks Martin!

I popped into Vic's last Friday for late happy hour (a brilliant concept!) and enjoyed a tasty Tortuga and a superb Reverb Crash. In the capable hands of Martiki I was reminded why this drink won the TC drink contest by a landslide. Unfortunately I spent my entire wage packet over the weekend (mostly on records at the Fall sale at Down Home Music in El Cerrito) so I can't make it tonight or tomorrow. Pooh.

Another great night at the SF Trader Vic's! I'm so glad to have this night every week, we're really enjoying it.

I'm very happy to report that Trader Vic's "Monday Night Football" thingy attracted pretty much nobody, while we had a nice tidy gathering of tikiphiles. Yes, their $3 beers and $1 hotdogs may have been a fantastic value, but that's not what we were there for -- we were there for a tiki atmosphere and quality tropical beverages. Thankfully the MNF thingy was set up in the Havana Room, so there wasn't a garish television set in the bar killing the mood.

I would *love* for this to serve as an interesting illustration to Trader Vic's regarding where their true power lies; I'm quite hopeful that through the football season, our Monday tiki group will outdraw, outspend, and outclass the football thingy.

Thanks once again to Martin & Lars! And to whoever came up with Bongo Bongo Soup, and with whoever was the person that person turned to after creating Bongo Bongo Soup to ask "what do you think?" Many might have said "it looks & smells like the underside of a pier!" but this fine soul was able to get past that, and deliver the positive reinforcement necessary for Bongo Bongo Soup to make its way onto menus. To the proud men (and women?) of Trader Vic's history, I salute you!

I'm glad you approve- I should have asked, but I hoped you wouldn't mind. It seems appropriate, after all! It's popular among the staff as well.

I've also been known to roll out the occasional Beachbum's Own now and again, and a few of my own deadly weapons, which are currently not ready for release into the wild.

Yes, MNF was officialy a bust. We'll see how it does next week. But I am pleased to report that Martiki Monday had 400% more attendees than MNF.

See y'all next week! Or tonight!

Hey! Are any TC'ers planning on going this Monday, which also happens to be Halloween? Coco Loco, Mr. Smiley, and I were wondering, since they have a big Halloween celebration nearby at the Civic Center. Could be fun...

Is Martiki bartending on Halloween?

We wanna be here earlier in the evening, in case any cute little kids come by (or funny lookin' ones). We'll aim for the 2nd happy hour, we'll probably be at Trader Vic's by about 8:30 or 9.

I will be in costume around 6:15pm. I may leave at some point to check out the Civic Center stuff and I may come back later.

I'll be in San Fran from 11/23-11/26.
Probably the worst weekend because it's Thanksgiving but ya never know!

Let me know if anyone wants to meet up on 11/25!

I read about all of you folks and your tiki adventures on the West Coast, it would be cool to partake in some of them while I'm out there.

Cindy- you gotta bring the mug costume tonight. It will blow their minds.

Bruce- I am afraid of your costume.

I am working tonight, and Clem is not visiting I'm sorry to say.

See everyone tonight!

Boo!
