Well, what time of year are we talking about? After TO7? Maybe September?

September would be ok, just not the end of the month. Any other takers ?

I don't have a home bar, but I'd be happy to contribute bottles of my homemade ginger syrup to the bars of the hosts.

OK to bring us up to date:

Potential Bar Hosts South to North:

Hinky Drinks- Oakland- TBD
Coco Loco- Oakland-
Mai Tai- Alameda
Bincho- Novato-
TikiWine Bear- Santa Rosa
VampiressRN-Lincoln Hills

How about participants? I know a few....

It would seem a shame to miss thy neighbors bar, is it a crawl or a bar tour? or a Trawl?

Actually Coco Loco and Mai Tai go together, in Alameda.

You forgot Buster's Bali High in Alameda. Not sure if Martiki in Novato is up for a home bar showing at this time given his Forbidden Island schedule.

Mentally picturing the Bay Area (East/South/Northbay) Ohana, I'd say we could easily pull together 12 -25 folks for a cocktail and enjoyment of one or two of the home bars.

It's definitely NOT a crawl -- we'd probably visit only one or two home bars at a time. I know at this point, Sept. works best for us, Haole'akamai and Buster, so calling roll 6 months in advance might be a bit premature?

Okay, how about making your own liquers?

You don't raise the alchol content of the liquid; you're only adding flavor.


And they're even tastier when they're posted to the correct thread!

Nothing official-like, but every once in a while we realize we've got a do-nothing weekend coming up. It always turns out to be a short notice deal, but anyway maybe we can have some folks over again this spring or summer, here on the Peninsula. I wouldn't call our place a home bar, but we've got some fun stuff to look at (and touch? hear? taste? smell?).



Plus within a stone's throw there's always the interesting nearby sites like the former Lanai, the former Lanai Liquors, and the former Villa Hotel. Hmm, maybe those were all formerly interesting. There's also the Bel-Mateo Bowl, with its un-tiki but delightfully themed tall steel totem pole and "Totem Room".

Very nice Randy. I was hoping you'd chime in, but didn't want to volunteer you.
We really enjoyed visiting your house.

The Novato Grotto is a maybe. It's pretty dusty these days.
