This just in from Will the Thrill:
THE CONGO LOUNGE
5422 College (Rockridge District)510.339.7960

This Friday, May 23, they are having an OPENING NIGHT PARTY till about 3 in
the morning. SPREAD THE WORD VIA ALL YOUR NETWORKS - OAKLAND HAS A BRAND NEW
OLD SCHOOL TIKI BAR! And they want and need your help!

This has been open for a while but dig it: they just got their liquor
license and now they have a full bar of exotic cocktails AND the decor is
perfect PLUS they play authentic exotica music and 50s/60s movies on the TV
behind the bar - meaning they are true enthusiasts! No "Survivor" bullshit
here!

I guess the Von Stroheims picked the right time to movie to Oaktown....

Monica and I already have plans to attend the Rat Pack show at the Lake
Merritt Hotel that night, but we plan to swing by there afterwards to join
in the festivities.

Yeah, but it's not Monica, either- that's Will The Thrill's wife.

Actually I think it IS her given name, or at least half of it is.

Anyone interested in heading out to this place Friday? I've never heard a thing about it before this message. Anyone know anything about it?

I went there a couple of years ago when it opened. The decor was semi-tropical beach vibe, the cheap wine tropical drinks were pretty bad, and the music wasn't anything special. The food was pretty decent as it came upstairs from Rustica. I'm looking forward to seeing what changes they've made.
