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.
