I used to live in SF for almost 3 years. You must go to Tongo Room in the Fairmount Hotel. This is #1 on your list. Then there's Bamboo Hut, Trader Sam's, Trader Vic (in Oakland and Palo Alto)--I think Lilo Lounge closed since I left. Enjoy!
Also, I LOVE your Otto's t-shirt. Thanks for makin' them! i am going to Argentina for a week and this is going to be my vacation shirt!

Don't miss Trader Vic's in Emeryville, or Mr. Vise Grips Bamboo Room in Fairfax. See the S.F. Crawl Tiki Events thread.

I don't know if Vise will be back to his summer hours yet- right know the Bamboo Bar in Fairfax is only open Fri/Sat.
tastysp, we'll come out for a drink or two- just post again as you get closer to your trip.
I'm just trying to brace for pablus' visit right now.

If you're heading out to Oakland, stop by Conga Lounge (located blocks away from Rockridge Bart station) We opened our little contribution to Oakland's Tiki culture last June and it's a great place to listen to exotica/lounge and sip on a Mai Tai. We are open Wed thru Sat from 5pm onward. Head on by. We'd love to buy you a drink and chat about Tiki culture in NYC.
