Just in case you might not know this yet...If you're flying to SJ and going in/out of Terminal C, check out Martini Monkey. They have great, well-made tropical cocktails. The bar is behind the security gates now, so only ticketed Terminal C passengers can go there.

More about it here:

Martini Monkey is indeed fantastic. And I, too, have been to TV's Palo Alto - yes, not much Poly decor, but the food is excellent, drinks excellent, and the bartenders I've spoken with are friendly and know their stuff.

I think the PNG artifacts at the Palo Alto TVs are a fabulous collection, actually.
