250 Zen Tiki Lounge LIVE from Tiki Caliente 4

After many months of waiting and testing cocktails, Tiki Caliente came and went.  The weather in Palm Springs was perfect for cocktails by the pool all day and all night.  The ZTL crew enjoyed hitting all the room parties.  Special mention to The Hair of the Dog Party and Flaming Tiki, two of our favorite rooms and cocktails.  Music by the Martini Kings poolside with Sonny Moon were another of the big highlights.  Meeting Sonny Moon at an after party later in the evening was the bees knees.  The Hula Girls played Sunshines favorite song Volcano.  That makes him very happy.  And for those that were lucky enough to see the Deadbeat Daddies on Friday, you know what a great performance it was.  Great to see them at the event and the first time we were able to see the guys live.  Then of course there was Moai Man, Listeners carrying around their Big Orange Richard mugs by PopTiki, our funner than fun room party, using pool floaties for innuendo, the LIVE podcast with great listeners in our hotel room, and so much more.  Listen for to hear everyones favorite tiki podcast game show "whats in Kalani's bras."  As if that isn't enough we open up the mic to our audience for LIVE listener mail and sip the two fabulous cocktails you see below.  Cheers and Mahalo Ginger's Passion
