Description:
I have this old drink menu from the Zanzibar bar located in San Francisco. Looking at the drink prices this place was very much pre-Tiki. Some exotic South Seas drink names with, of course, the special Zombie drink. Amazing how Vic and Don created such a drink craze.

I also snagged this image of the napkin from ebay some time ago, they added a Hula girl to the beach scene.

San Francisco News-Call Bulletin - April 29, 1942:
"Guests watch Mickey de Torrie, ace mixologist and co-owner of colorful Zanzibar, mix super concoctions. This friendly imbibery is in St. Francis Wood, Ingleside section, at 1926 Ocean avenue.".

Ha, TC strikes again: Someone posts an obscure piece of paper ephemera, and -BAM-, we get to see a photo and text from the place! Love it. But hey, what's wrong with that editor, deciding to cut that smiling babe outta the picture!

Cool matchbook from the Zanzibar.

A better version of the matchbook.
