107 Passion fruit and the Thai Princess

The entire country has been caught up in one of the most debated political races in a few decades.  We don't know about you but it all got to be a little much for us.  So in typical fashion, Sunshine and Pumpkin raise their tiki drinks high and drink up.  Some things are better in the past, yet still give us hope for the future.  Without spilling our presidential opinions to much we do a little commentary and toss in plenty of tropical goodness.  Our cocktail for example is a deliciously fruity rum variation of the virgin Bora Bora punch.  So much better with the booze and as you will hear, Pumpkin gets a little saucy after #2.  Sunshine shares some highlights from this years Halloween party.  Including some of the fun tid bits that party guests left behind.  And, it may sound a bit early but we give a good holiday shopping tip or two for your tiki friends.  Good ol Trader Vic has a gift package waiting for you.  Lastly we share what has become Sunshines favorite new podcast.  The quiet village podcast is full of great exotica and some good DJ work to go with it.  Check it out NOW!

104 Sarah Palin in the lounge

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if crazy people were pulling all the strings?  So do we.  Thats why we spend so much time this week talking about Sarah Palin and her crazy ass run for the white house.  Jesus Christ already, we get it.....you are exactly what America needs.  But here in the lounge we aren't quite going along wit that.  So, first we had a cocktail or two.  Then we roll played to see what might really happen if Sarah Palin were in the white house.  Then we cried.  Not everthing this week is so heavy.  Sunshine gives some party planning tips for Halloween and keeping it tiki.  If you try making our cocktail of the week be sure to prepare the holiday brew a day ahead.Drink of the week: Island Trick

102 Dr. Chao's panda juice

Theres nothing better than a show just coming together. Although the first few minutes were a bit difficult due to the unpredictable nature of a certain someones canine, it all worked out. Pumpkin had her pooch Charles join us this week and he certainly didn't mind making plenty of noise. For some reason he wasn't too keen on the cocktail. We tried a pomegranate lemonade type concoction that is sure to please anyone who isn't looking for a complicated beverage. Sweet and tart and still packed with plenty o' booze. Speaking of drinks, Sunshine tells the listeners about a new iPhone application call "Drinks." This handy little app has over 4500 recipes and you can add your own, perfect for the bartender in all of us. We also discuss the Red Cross current ban on gay blood, the unexpected electrical usage of your wall air freshener and plenty of other shenanigans.
