Wow!!! Indeed what a great night!

Pablus was there! And performed a couple of tunes out on the back patio, and basically closed it down for the evening.


Suzanne ordered the last drink needed in order for her to finish the menu - a Mystery Bowl! WE all join in to lend a helping hand.


Although she really didn't need any help. Before you know it, the Mystery Bowl was gone!


And Suzanne is rewarded with a shot of Diplimatico rum, and the World's Coolest Bumper Sticker. Which you definitely don't want to be sporting on your bumper in Alameda!!!


Pablus gives Basement Kahuna a call, and the next thing you know, we're all drinkin' Concubines! And the love starts flowin'!!!








Lastly, when we dropped the Drunken Hat and Tiki Cleen off at the Days Inn in Alameda, here is a hood ornament on one of the vehicles in the parking lot!


Again, what a great night! Pablus, good luck on your travel stint. BK, thanks for sending out the drink recipe. Suzanne, thanks for the Diplimatico! Everyone, thanks for being you!!!

RATS! My chance to meet and listen to the infamous Pablus without going to Florida!! Wish I would have known in advance and I would have gotten in gear to be at FI last night. Sorry to have missed you all. It's always a fun night when drunkenhat and tikicleen come to visit too. You guys sticking around tonight too?

Awesome place.
Thanks Denise and Mike for letting us stay outside an extra hour.
Hope the angry neighbor was lulled to sleep by our soft uke tones.

Ukebox was there - my very favorite ukulele artist - and we had a little throwdown.
What a player. He has a new CD out that I can't wait to give a listen.

It was great to meet some of you and re-establish relationships with others and particularly nice to see BooLoo there looking resplendent.

My favorite part of the evening was actually bringing my wife into the scene... a little.

Mahalo, o people of Forbidden Island. Your shores now hold fond memories for me that I will revisit many times as I move on to distant islands.

It was such a fabulous surprise to get to meet Pablus last night! My favoritist moment of the night was when he was singing his beautiful Forbidden Island song on the back patio by the light of the tiki torches. Thanks for serenading us!

Oh, and I can't believe I actually allowed someone to take a picture of me wearing my glasses! I must've forgotten I was wearing them. D'oh!

Oh yeah, the drinks.

A perfectly poured Demerara Dry Float led to a Mystery Bowl.
Then the Captain's Grog and a Zombie. (not together)
A Declared Treuse was exquisitely tart. Thayer's own in(ter)vention.

Fugu for 2. Sweet and deadly.

Then the Concubine. Sublime.

The nightcap was a slight pour of some dark rich rum, possibly the Pampero, with a touch of lime and pineapple.

That's a few more than I had intended to drink, but I always say that.

Thanks to the mixologists that make FI what it is. A premier establishment serving artistic cocktails with loads of FRESH MINT!

Wow!!! What a night with Pablus and Ukebox jamming the ukes in the back. I met so many people last night and felt so very welcome. Mahalo!!!

Pablus bon voyage and hope to cross paths with you and your wife again.

I'm not sure if I find it odd or not that the only song I played all day yesterday and today was Forbidden Island, not realizing pablus would be there last night. Binars strike again.

Glad a good time was had by all. Looking forward to making it out there sometime soon. Until then, I'll mix another Mai Tai and get back to my uke.....

What a night, indeed! Thank you to everyone who shared the Mystery Bowl with me, and celebrated my completion of the menu... whee! I did need help with it, which was gladly given, and the Diplimatico was fantastic! I was sad that I wasn't able to finish it, but I know it went to a good home. What beautiful, beautiful music were we treated to on the patio! I'll never hear the Mikado the same way again. I was enchanted by how well the Gilbert and Sullivan lends itself to the ukelele. And the Forbidden Island song.... oh! I MUST have a copy of this!

An unforgettable night, no doubt. Thank you for posting the photos, Mai Tai! I will miss you all so much when I'm in Texas. Hopefully Hanford will announce the SF Crawl dates soon so I can play my trip home. (hint, hint )
