Ken, Concord is not far from The Conga Lounge and Forbidden Island. If you're going to go, let me know when.

Concord is close to Emeryville TV's, too! Heck, you could hit the Tiki Tom's, head to Oakland, Alameda, Emeryville, head over the bay bridge and hit the tiki establishments there! Somebody's got to be your tiki tourguide!

Tacky


Why am I not surprised that the person recommending hitting Tiki Tom's has the word "Tacky" in their name?

Seriously, don't waste your time on Tiki Tom's, either the one in Walnut Creek, or the one in Oakland. The only decent thing about either place is the service and the somewhat appropriate live music on weekends. The drinks are nasty and the decor utilizes lots of cheap mass-produced balinese masks, some Florida-style, brightly-colored, big-toothed tikis, large television screens showing sports, and lots of neon beer signs. The food is only so-so.

If you want to make the most of your tiki time in the Bay Area, focus on Forbidden Island and Trader Vic's Emeryville. If you still have time after that, and haven't been there in a while, a happy hour stop at the Tonga Room wouldn't hurt. The Conga Lounge isn't bad, and the best part is that you can get pizza from downstairs delivered in the lounge. The only thing going for the Kona Club is the decor and its proximity to Vic Bergeron's final resting place. Just about everything else about it is wrong, including the music selection, the pool table, and the clientele.

Hope this helps.
