Every since I returned to Vegas' Circus Circus after many years past my childhood experiences, I realized - Carnivals and Circuses may SEEM fun as a child but they are oddly sad and depressing as an adult. Add Alcohol to the mix and you have a recipe for therapy. I came here for the Thrillist 4th Anniversary bash so I don't really know what it's like on a normal night, but it seem fine since I wasn't paying for any of my drinks. The DJ was awesome, but again, not sure if that was Carnival or Thrillist. The games are a buck and you can win weird things like Goldfish. Big Cons included walking up a zillion flight of stairs and being turned away at the coat check when I was the next person ... after waiting 20 minutes telling me they couldn't accommodate any more coats? The place wasn't even packed? What the hell.. This place definitely has a wow factor initially but like any novelty, wears off when you are run into a scary woman clown in the bathroom.

As far as El Salvadorian food goes, El Baron isn't messin' around. It really is a night club as well as a restaurant. You can watch people dance, or get up and do it yourself. The best thing I've encountered on the menu are the platanos fritos (fried plantains). The pupusas are alright, although I really enjoy Gloria's just a tad bit better. The slaw here is crisp and refreshing. They carry Tapatio hot sauce, which is a big plus for me. The food is good, authentic and delicious. The drinks are strong. The people are very friendly. Great neighborhood bar/restaurant.

OK. I've only been to Club Waziema once, so maybe it was an off-night, but the food was only a little better than mediocre. And there was some group performing in the back that asked our table not to talk. Weird. In SF, I definitely prefer New Eritrea or Rassela's. But if you're willing to drive, Red Sea in Oakland (Claremont and Telegraph) is the best Ethiopian in the Bay Area.
