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
Now in our 8th year of shenanigans behind the Zen Tiki Lounge bar, all of your hosts gathered once again for our annual Holiday Spectacular. It would be pointless to try and describe the evening in words. Best to give you the cocktail recipes, a few pictures of some vintage and not so vintage snacks, and send you on your Merry way. All of us at the Zen Tiki Lounge podcast wish you the most fabulous of Holidays filled with inebriated shenanigans.
Few things are more intoxicating than Halloween in a tiki bar. The lights are already dim, the cocktails already strong and the mood couldn't be more foreboding. Enjoy our annual Halloween podcast with cocktail recipes and exotica that you can copy/paste to create your own shindig for 2 or many. Cheers!Read More
