just back from Las Vegas, Sunshine shares his experience of ordering mai tais from 6 different sin city casino bars just to see what would happen. Some bars were certainly better than others and those you may think would serve the better drink didn't necessarily do so.

Be there September 29 from 11am to 3pm for signature ZTL cocktails, great food, LIVE podcast recording and you may be chosen to play Whats In Kalani's Bra!Read More

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.
On this episode we share the winners of the Circa Caliente room crawl. 14 rooms joined the crawl and participated in the inaugural year. Below are the winners of Best Drink, Best Decor and Best Overall Room. To all who participated we send a huge Mahalo for your hard work and dedication to such a fun event. Without all of our hosts the event would be 14 cocktails less fun. Cheers!Read More
On a much needed trip to Laguna Beach, Sunshine Tiki and a dozen friends in tow re-visited the Royal Hawaiian. We had checked out the tiki classic after it reopened in 2015. On that visit there was a lot to be desired. But, after seeing all the work that Bamboo Ben had put into the place and with his strong recommendation we gave RH another go. Without giving much away, we had a great time. Listen to the podcast to hear our experience recorded during our visit.Read More
