Our hearts go out to our friends across the Pacific, but sometimes love isn't enough.

  • Vintage Japanese and Asian Go Go fliks on the bar TV!
  • Sponsored by Effen Vodka who will be sending in the "Effen stewardesses" to accompany us on our flight
  • Proceeds from Susan's award-winning Effen cocktail, Sakura Daquiri, will be donated!
