Description:
I have this old drink menu from the Zanzibar bar located in San Francisco. Looking at the drink prices this place was very much pre-Tiki. Some exotic South Seas drink names with, of course, the special Zombie drink. Amazing how Vic and Don created such a drink craze.






I also snagged this image of the napkin from ebay some time ago, they added a Hula girl to the beach scene.

Ha, TC strikes again: Someone posts an obscure piece of paper ephemera, and -BAM-, we get to see a photo and text from the place! Love it. But hey, what's wrong with that editor, deciding to cut that smiling babe outta the picture!
