The Menu

The Pirates Post Office

Back in the day when travels from point A to point B meant weeks, months and years on the open seas, sailors, swashbucklers, and pirates used barrels set on remote islands as a means for getting messages back in the direction from which they came. On a recent trip to the Galapagos Islands, we were treated to one of these original Pirate’s Post Offices. Here is how it works:

  • Grab one of our Tropical Thunder postcards at the bar, or bring one of your own in
  • Write a message to a friend, family member or colleague – no stamp necessary!
  • Drop it in the mailbox
  • Choose a card that was left inside
  • Hand deliver the card you picked

Community Caring

$1 from each and every cocktail sold from our menu will be donated to the San Francisco Clean City Coalition, a non-profit that offers transitional employment opportunities through community improvement activities such as neighborhood greening, event recycling and graffiti removal.

Guests are also able to make a donation at Tropical Thunder’s Pirate’s Post Office.
