On Wednesday night some of you asked about the custom embroidery I did for the bartenders' shirts at Forbidden Island. Here's a link to an old thread about my sewing:

I meant to mention Cyn, you did an awesome job on the shirts.
I really wanted to buy one (not for sale) so I settled for a t-shirt.



The embroidered shirts are so cool, that I can't even get one!

I have to imbibe in, let's see, eleven seperate drinks. Saturday then, eh?


I have journeyed to the island, the mysterious and taboo Isle de Alameda. A full recap and candid snaps to follow, but here's my effort on the cocktail menu.

With the help of a long straw, several diversionary tactics, "Hey, is that Tom Jones!?!", and sitting in front of the talented mixologist, Sonya, I was able to kick-the tires on the following:


Headhunter
China Clipper
Leilani Volcano
Forbidden Island
Hawaii Kai Treasure
Krakatoa
Sidewinder's Fang
Monkeypod
The Combover
Saturn
Classic Mai Tai
Painkiller
Banana Mamacow
Chamborlada
Island Mai Tai

Some real fine cocktails, with a few stand-outs such as the Forbidden Island, Hawaii Kai Treasure, and of course the Sidewinder's Fang.

Alameda is far, but worth it...

Impressive Hanford, especially considering you had about a dozen beers there as well!

Thank Jab, yeah, I haven't counted my duplicates either ... I've had quite a few China Clippers and perhaps a few other duplicates.

If we're listing (and after this list, I'm definitely listing)

Forbidden Island
Neptune's Garden
China Clipper

Fugu for 2 (or as Mai Tai puts it "Fugu for 1..make it a double!")
Pirate Grog
Monkeypod
Coronado Luau Special
Sidewinder's Fang
Painkiller
Hawaii Kai Treasure
Krakatoa
Classic Mai Tai
Island Mai Tai
Banana Mamacow
Coconut Kallaloo
Painkiller

Lots and lots of water and a coke. Humuhumu made sure to point out that the coke is excellent. This is important to some.

I'll be there tonite to add a couple and to witness the Jab beat the menu. A mighty endeavor!

Aloha,
See the post on "Welcome to Forbidden Island",page 11, on the General Tiki Forums for the results of "The Jabs" quest to be the first to drink his way through the thirty eight items on the Forbidden Island's extraordinary menu.

As it was announced that the Jab was finisihing his quest to drink every drink on the menu, a group of people started chanting "SLURRED SPEECH! , SLURRED SPEECH!" as opposed to the traditional "Speech!,speech!"

Staring down my opponent.
