Friday I skipped out on work today to start the weekend a little early . Started the evening at the Tonga Room at the Fairmont, the Tonga Room is an upscale Tiki Bar, located in the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill. You pay a premium for drinks cause you're paying for the location which is nice.

The Tonga Room has a buffet $7.00 all you can eat. It was pretty good, ribs, pork buns, veggie rolls, fruits, noodles etc. The drinks were a little disappointing the portion were smaller than my neighborhood tiki bar Trader's Sam and the neighborhood bartender has nothing to worry about. I'm not hatin on the Tonga Room it's a fun change, a Rain Forest Cafe/Bar for adults.

After happy hour we walked over to the Masonic auditorium to see Shirley Horn. She was performing at part of the San Francisco Jazz Festival. Prior her performance the Jazz Festival had a pre-talk it was a snooze but Shirley Horn was a joy to watch. We had great seats and could could see her every move. She sung a variety of songs from Fever to A Song for You with her special style and interpretation. It was very nice evening.
