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!
