Mennu at Tonga Room

Mennu at Tonga Room, originally uploaded by chicagodust.

Here's a picture of me drinking a Volcano Bowl in the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar in the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The place is like two Disney themes at once: The Tiki Room with Pirates of the Carribean; like a Polynesian village near a docked boat. There's a pool in the middle of the bar, and in the middle of the pool is a small ship where undersized Polynesian musicians do live covers of Madonna songs, or at least so I'm told. I don't know about that though, since there was no music there late on Monday night. There were, however, constant indoor rainshowers. Every once and a while some indoor thunder and lightning would be followed up by movie-set rain which would noisily fall directly into the pool. It was playful, interesting and fun.

And thanks to Flaggs for helping me amass KNOWledge about SF. It's as though I was born there...
