Below: Sunshine Tiki takes you on a quick preview of room party hosted by Zen Tiki Lounge at Tiki Caliente 10 in Palm Springs, May 2018
Those of us who attend weekend long tiki parties often have a hard time explaining to others what we did for 3-5 days. The best way is to show you. Below you see lots of fantastic cocktails from all those who hosted on the crawl this year at Tiki Caliente 10. Room themes were outstanding as you can see. Pirates, mermaids, casino, Godzilla and Monkeys just to name a few.
After months of schedule planning we finally made it to the Tacki Tiki home of Tiki Trail. Jeff and Vicki welcomed us into their home tiki bar for cocktails, wonderful food and a great time. The Tacki Tiki is the home bar of Jeff and Vicki Ballard, many years in the making and full of kitsch and shared memories. Like many home bars each corner is filled with items collected from travels and personal interests. When you listen to to the podcast you will hear us talk about some of the significance of the various pieces of decor in the bar.Read More
