My first time was at The Lanai in San Mateo, CA. It was about two weeks before it closed down. I assume I had a Sidewinders Fang (their signature drink) but I may have had a Zombie (like the name). I thought the place was incredible-I was floored! Unfortunately, I was barely 21 and a very cheap SOB and thought spending so much at bars just to drink was a waist of money, when one could spend less at their own home. I didn;t look at the big picture. In this case, the Ambience! I never went back. About a month or so later, I read they were having an auction, but I had to work that day and didn't have the two weeks notice that my company demanded. My , how my life may have changed if I started my Tiki collection (with the exception of the cheap one I got in Tahiti in 1973) back then!!! No warehouse could hold me!!!!
