Ok, who wants to join me the Thursday after the Kona opens? Lets meet for dinner at The Alley bar @ 3325 Grand Ave in Oakland around 7:30 pm.
http://eastbay.citysearch.com/profile/1020128/?brand=smx_bar-nc and then head over to the Kona Club around 9:15 pm @ 4401 Piedmont Ave in Oakland. (you just drive up Grand Ave from the Alley and it curves around at the Kona Club will be on the right). ZAZZ!!!

NOTE; I corrected the address for the Kona Club!

There's no doubt that I will practically be living there for a while. So, count me in.

How cool of you to include the Alley! (From up in heaven, "Stormin' Norman" is hurling benedictions down upon ye.) Now the Grand Lake area has TWO great theme bars, and as you point out, they're such a quick hop from each other! It never fails to surprise me how many vintage-loving folks have never experienced the labyrinthine and faintly seedy MEGA-retrosity that is "The Alley".

Of course, I also like Scary House* ...but I'm Irish, so I can't help it.

(Now if a TRUE W.C. Fields-o-phile would just buy ol' Egbert Souse's a little further down the street and spruce it up--Mae West imitators, anyone?!?--Piedmont Avenue would be a hoppin' street for classy boozehounds!)

To get to the point, we might be able to make it. We could drag Paul over. He DO love them cheeep Alley steaks!

I still say Oakland is ripe for a dive bar crawl--not just Tiki! OVERripe, probably...

As far as the drinks go, so far they are pouring like they do at Club Mallard. There is no tropical drink menu (yet), but the bartenders are ready and willing to make anything that they have the ingredients for. They have fresh limes and lemons, and a small selection of good rum. I was drinking daiquiries made with Zaya rum and fresh lime last Saturday. The friendly new bartenders Nanrisa and John were doing a great job on Saturday with special requests. I know that Tage (spelling?), a veteran of Club Mallard, is supposed to be working at the Kona on fridays, and he knows all the classic tropical drinks. I heard that they will have tiki mugs eventually, and maybe a drink menu of select classic tropical drinks.

I plan on being at the Kona around 8, possibly with a friend who goes only by the initials L.T.G.
