A beautiful work of art Martin and Notch.
Congrats all around!

All you need now is a wahine serving drinks and I will have my pay check direct deposited to the Smuggler's Cove account.

I tried 3 drinks, first the Dat Dat Dosh (too sweet for my tongue), second the Rum Barrel (I bought the barrel), and my favorite of the 3 was the Chi Chi Pache. She could serve me that one anytime.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention an idea... Suppose they rig up a bucket and pulley system between "the hut" upstairs and the ground floor bar. Then you can lean over the railing, request a drink, and have it prepared and elevated right to you. It could be done!

Well, I wrote something earlier but it got lost in the ether...
Anyway, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Sunday 5 pm pre-party.
I dragged along three (non-tiki) school buddies.
My friends who have never been to a tiki bar, were thoroughly impressed...I, who have been in quite a few bars, was extremely impressed.
Excellent job Martin, Notch and everyone else involved.
We sat at the street level bar, and ordered 4 drinks:
Port Au Prince, Captain's Grog, Puka Punch and Zombie.
All of them were very good, but the Puka Punch and the Zombie were my favorite.
After that, I ordered a level 3 Pain Killer, which was tastey, but I think a level 4 would have been better. Then, the Rum Barrel - oh my god, was it good and spicey. Naturally, I bought the Barrel mug.
My friends left, and I told them I'll forge through on my own...
I strolled down to the downstairs bar, and as I finished my rum Barrel, I realized I should try one of the original creations. Martin suggested El Pampanito, and that was another home run. Excellent drink.
At that point it was time for last call for the time slot, so I dragged my feet out into the stormy SF weather to soak the alocohol with Sushi from Japantown.

This was a great experience, too bad it's so far from San Diego my home town, as this is now my favorite place to get a drink.

I came home tonight to find a package waiting in the mailbox from a friend in SF. Last April I drug a couple of friends out to FI and they totally loved it (they'd been to Trad'r Sam many times as it is just down the street).

Somehow they got tickets to the very first preview (neither read this forum).

Long story short... in the package was a SC swizzle AND the cocktail list. OMG! How many visits does it take to get through that entire list? I want to try everything.

Looking forward to my next trip to SF so I can experience SC in person.
