If you want to feel like you're in the tropics, but don't have the dough for a plane ticket to Fiji, check out the Kon Tiki Restaurant and Lounge and its signature drink, the Scorpion. This aptly named, thoroughly delicious citrus and rum concoction not only stings, but after a couple of hits, anesthetizes its prey with lethal efficiency. If you're a sissy, one of these babies will eliminate driving as a possibility, and if you're made of sterner stuff ... ah, well, let's just say you should have taxi fare in your pocket just in case. They just go down so damn easy.
