On Friday, I'm heading for San Francisco with my wife and in-laws. We're actually spending four days in Napa/Sonoma, but if I'm lucky,
I can probably sneak in a Tiki excursion.... So, where should I go? I'll probably have to go during the daytime and whil I've been to SF,
I'm not terribly familiar with the area. I need tiki recomendations!!

I will say that I am a complete sucker for Mugs I can't get anywhere else, so that would be a big bonus.

So, with one day, in-laws to consider, and an insatiable hunger for mugs, what one bar should I hit???

You say during the day? Unless you can get over the FI on Sunday, you'd be heading over after 5pm.

Kona Club in Oakland is awesome! It opens at noon on weekends and 2 pm weekdays and they have a kewl mug...

One day, there will be a cure for tiki,
That's the day I'll throw my rum away...

If it has to be before 5:00pm, go to Trader Vic's in Emeryville. The only other thing open before 5:00 is Kona Club, which has great decor, but that's really the only thing it has going for it. The music, clientele, drinks, and overall atmosphere are quite a disappointment. At Vic's you get good drinks, good food, good views, good mug selection and availability, and the historical aspect goes without saying. If you can be in the Bay Area after 5:00pm, go to Forbidden Island in Alameda. That's where you'll get the best decor, drinks, service, music, atmosphere, and a mug that is not available online or anywhere else. Go to www.critiki.com and do the research. The ratings for the tiki locations in the area say it all.
