Tonga in the Times

Sweet Fancy Moses! How do we get Martin Cate to head up a revamp of the Tonga Room.

Back in March, the SF Chronicle broke the news (to me anyway) the Tonga Room was doomed.

My main man Nate Dumas from PDT and The Clover Club in NYC was visiting and we went up for one last Scorpion Bowl (beautifully horrendous.)

Today, the Times revisited the subject...with pictures even.

Am I the only one that sees the recently barless Martin Cate as our last, best hope for the Tonga Room.

I am starting a damn Facespace group!

Mahalo, amigo. I would love to get my hands on the Tonga and save it- I have a whole business model for that space in my head ready to go that could bring back the magic. Unfortunately, I fear there are too many, shall we say, "structural" problems in place at the Fairmont that would make it impossible. I can still dream, though. :)
