Friday evening, the Kung Fu Saloon is of course pretty full. Very good selection of drinks. Wanted to go into a private karaoke room, but unfortunately too long waiting list. Good place for evening/night entertainment.

Columbus day weekend... Day before a holiday off, and dead. I don't like overly crowded places, but I like places where people are. The drinks were good, they don't skimp on liquor. And I didn't go for food. I will say I loved the music......More
