Trad'r Sam was next on the agenda:

It was more like your neighborhood dive-bar with a hint of tiki:



WooHoo found another person celebrating his birthday

The Scorpion Bowls were very tasty!!!

A fun dive bar that probably had more of a tiki history in the past!

Saturday started at Trader Vic's Emeryville....Very awesome experience! Too many wonderful artifacts to mention so here are some of the highlights:


We found some Tikis out front to welcome us



Let's go in...














Our host Deborah made sure we felt welcomed!



The Mai-Tai made "the old way" was THE BEST!!!!

Everything was perfect!

We hated to leave, but there were other tiki temples to visit!!!!

Then we made it to the Conga Lounge
to meet up with the owner Mike and his charming wife Denise.

We had no idea what awaited us at the top of the stairs...


It was a very inviting and warm tiki tropical paradise




We hated to leave! The Pizza was fantastic and again, the hosts were top-notch!

Mike & Denise...We'll look forward to seeing youat the Forbidden Island Sunday evening??? Mucho Mahaloz again!

It's Sunday afternoon and it looks like it's Forbidden Island this evening and the Tonga Room tonight, then we're outta here! (And we're taking this fabulous weather back with us!!!) LOL!!! It's been great to meet up with some of the NorCal TC Ohana! You all are more than welcome to partake in our hospitality when you venture down south!!!

It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you both over the weekend.
Pity we couldn't do any of the SF Tiki with you. Oh well, next time.

Happy Birthday once again, Woohoo!!
We feel honored that you chose to spend it amongst us.

Looking forward to drinking with you guys in the near future!!

Mahalo!!

I bet! You guys really did up the Bay Area the right way - and most of it without a car!

It was great to meet you two. Glad you got to experience some Ohana Nor Cal style. I'm still full from that Philly Cheese steak sandwich! Cheers!

Mahalo Soccertiki & Woohoowahine: Wonderful photos, looks like you guys hit them all. My Wahine and I are starting our Bay Area crawl on St. Patrick's Day. Great tip on the happy hour at the Tonga Room. I'm a little sad that the new Trader Vic in SF has so little Tiki, because we are staying just blocks away from it. But, it looks like Emeryville more than make up for it. Thanks again! Tiki Leki

By all means check out the T.V. in S.F.! We just weren't impressed with the food and drinks... And we were expecting more. There is definitely some decor worth seeing and there may be better bartenders when you go. Just so you know, the happy hour is only from 3:30 to 5pm... The Tonga room is definitely the place for HH!!!! And Conga Mike is right about the pizza (and munchies) at The Conga Room are a must try. It's always the right time to stop by the Forbidden Island! Friendly staff, great decor and tasty drinks!

I have to say, the thought of a "tropical drink" is not appealing after 4 days lava bowls, scorpion bowls, tonga punches, mai-tai's, fog cutters and "mystery drinks"!!!

On second thought...Gimme an old school Trader Vic Mai-Tai!!!
