Have you noticed the weather lately? We have. Its time go start getting ready for that Summer BBQ/Luau or any other theme you like. Sunshine and Pumpkin naturally gravitate towards the tiki side of things but to each their own. On the podcast this week we toast the traditional tack of the American/Hawaiian Luau. A mai tai here and a pina colada there. Maybe a blue hawaiian or two to wash it down. You can feel good without a nice lei and a few grass skirts. Pumpkin just reminds everyone that plastic leis and grass skirts are a tragedy. Go for the real thing and use those skirts year after year. Buy yourself a few nice silk leis and hang em on any old hook till you need them next. Other subjects this week include Quiznos and their dirty after hours commercials….which we like, Malibu rum offers free applications for the Iphone, Steve Zahn is a funny guy and not bad to look at either, and the usual poor taste in vocabulary continues as Pumpkin gets buzzed.
It was just a matter of time till Sunshine entangled his love for Star Trek into the Zen Tiki Lounge. Just back from seeing the new movie, Sunshine has lots to say while Pumpkin is off on her usual tangent. It’s choose your own cocktail this week, much like the old series of books…choose wisely. Another hot topic this week is very sweet. Simple syrup isn’t the only bar sweetner out there, try honey orange syrup, organic orgeat or maybe fresh made lime syrup. All perfect for a Spring/Summer cocktail. Make one, make them all. Your guests will know you mean business with your booze. We also give you a few more reasons to hate Oprah and Marth Stewart, perfect.
The show is a tribute to Summer and all that goes with it. BBQ’s and booze, what better pair? We read some listener email from England, give some advice on parenting and use dirty body part names for no reason at all.
You know you want to listen.
