Come hear the silky smooth sounds of Alameda's own The Jab, as he spins the night away at Forbidden Island this Tuesday July 18th starting at 7pm.

Expect a mix of lounge/exotica/rockabilly/garage and anything else that pops into his well-coiffed head.



Forbidden Island
1304 Lincoln Ave (at Sherman)

You got it. I just pulled their mini-LP with "Ring of Fire" off the shelf to bring.

I'm looking forward to hearing The Jab spin.

I'm also looking forward to watching the room spin as I continue working my way through the FI drink menu. 23 down, 16 to go.

What Would Jab Do?

Well, one thing he did, he put behinds in the seats, Forbidden Island was hopping. For a Tuesday night: super hopping. The talented DJ got spinning vinyl around eight or so, and it was cool tunes, so many fine selections, from then on. At least until 9:15 when yours truly had to depart, as I am old and need my sleep. Unfortunately, due to my "early bird special" departure I did not get to enjoy any Wall of Voodoo (but Dean came through and had the EP on hand), next time! Loads of fine music nonetheless.



The man himself. It was "Nautical" Jab this evening. Ahoy!

Earlier in the evening I was commiserating with Tofu Joe, perusing the FI menu and analyzing the finer points of finer cocktails. We were soon joined by two of Scott's/Thayer's friends: Chris and Maria. A fine pair, indeed. After some small talk, an initiation was at hand. Hey, I been around a little, someone breaks out the flaming eyeball and the matching shirts/fez...I go with it! There was a cult, and it was cool, but I forsook the Kool-Aid...I had a fog cutter!



The flaming eyeball rocked! Even if "flaming" and any random body part does remind me of a trip to TJ in '88. I remember an oath back then too....maybe there's a connection? Nah, no chance, even though I left early I know there wasn't a donkey around. Martin is a stickler for that health code.



One more montage of the evening's DJ Jab fun: Tofu Joe sucking down some flaming eyeball (don't ask, it ain't on the menu); Fog Cutter, a fine well-done tropical libation; Scorpion Bowl, Maria's favorite, as bowl drinks go; Classic Daiquiri, a good one, I really like the daiquiris.

You know what this means, only two to go! Wait, three? No, two. A zombie, the mystery bowl, and the summit is mine. As long as my Sherpa sticks by my side and the weather stays agreeable, my lap through the Forbidden Island menu is finished some time Saturday night during the Crawl. Show up, join in the fun...help me knock out the mystery bowl. You may just see a ritual or two. Three, no...two!

Non-Alameda Resident, No Car, Long-distance, Champion!

My parents would have been so proud,
midnite

Hey, wait a minute! Bartender Jim told me no one was as close as me to finishing the menu, well, except for the five people who already have. Apparently, he hasn't been paying attention. Gee, now I feel like I drank that Fugu all by myself tonight for naught.

Here's a thought ... does anyone know if a wahine has finished the menu yet? Maybe I could set that record!

Let's see, if I go to FI every night this week and drink 4 drinks each night, then I could help Midnite with that Mystery Bowl on Saturday and we could finish it together. Hmmmmmm. Always fun to finish together

JenTiki -

If you are set on trying to do this, I'll accompany you . I am nowhere near finishing the menu BUT it's something I can aspire to! And even if I am the first runner up wahine to do it, it will be all right by me....
