Atlaneans? I like that better.
Anyway. I have something imperative for all of you to try. If you get some extra cash and a free Thursday, go to the Hilton downtown and take the elevator to the basement and go to Trader Vic’s. I know some of you have probably done this already, but if you haven’t, you must.
Why Thursday? Well, firstly the Mai Tais are $5 on Thursdays, and secondly Tongo-Hiti plays then, which is the best part (if you don’t or can’t drink, there are virgin drink options, and I have it on good authority that those are very tasty). Jennie and Becca and I went last week, and aside from me finishing my drink and Jennie‘s, too, resulting in massive drunkenness on my part, it was a blast and I’m so ready to go back again.
Did I mention that Tongo-Hiti has a theremin? Well, they do.
I got a little plastic dude in my drink. Apparently there’s a drink that includes a plastic parrot. I will perhaps order that next time. I seriously felt like I was visiting a swinging 50s bachelor pad. It was awesome.
