  2. The adminstrative buildings are on the backside of the island behind the Adventurer's Club - and the Rock and Roll Beach Club. If you walk down the stairway beside the Adventure's Club, you will see a bridge along the side of the island to you right while walking down the stairs. The three windows, that you see above the shop on the opposite side of the street from 8-Trax, are windows of adminstrative offices. Anyone can walk into these offices, there is a stairway connecting the offices with the "Missing Link" store. There is also another walkway leading from these adminstrative offices to the small side stage.
