After fighting through an endless onslaught of rain, I swaggered into Russell's (Su Bau Cafe) to get some eats. As I was perusing the menu, I felt that something, or someone, was definitely missing from the restaurant. To quench my curiosity, I slipped through the crowd to one of the employees and asked, "Where's Wayne?!" She responded that he was the new big Kahuna at Tropics Restaurant and Bar. Feeling the sudden shock of being left out of the loop, I ran all the way to the Tropics with my arms a-flailing.

Tropics is located at 11, Ching Ming Road, across from Cocona Pub. Wayne, a former Australian rugby international, was standing behind the bar serving drinks with a wink and a smile. The bar was busy as the patrons were taking advantage of an all-you-can-drink-and-eat special for NT$350. It was then that I decided to use my position as an influential local columnist and charm the bartender into giving me a few free drinks. The answer went somewhere along the lines of "piss off".

Hoping to lick my wounds in private, I laughed off my suggestion as a joke, ordered a beer and sprinted to the little boys room. The break allowed me to regroup and notice that the rain had subsided. With this in mind, I took my act to the outdoor patio. Thanks to the good conversation and a pleasant aroma wafting from the barbecue, I soon settled in for a great evening.

After several wee nips of courage, I retired to the bar to listen to DJ Steve Taylor and watch the rhythm of the dance floor. A big-screen TV and deceivingly roomy sitting area makes Tropics Restaurant and Bar suitable for both parties and small crowds alike. I ended the evening giving Wayne a piece of my mind and buying NT$100 beers. Tropics Restaurant and Bar gets five beers out of a possible six on the Paddyboy Bar rating scale. So stop by and experience a little of Wayne's World. Have a good one.
