Today!!!
Me...I know, big surprise. It will be our third night in a row at TH.
Looking forward to seeing some not-so-regulars...and regular regulars too!
In case you couldn't make it out for Amy's birthday last night, I'm sure we'll be continuing the celebration tonight as well.

You all still have a couple of hours to make it to the Tonga Hut. Amy (Happy Birthday) and Jeremy are great hosts and the place looks vintage and fresh at the same time. We had all four of Marie's signature cocktails and they were all very complex and excellent....rivaled anything at Tiki Ti and Smuggler's Cove. Marie and the other cute bartender were making drinks from the Grog Log too. Bigtikidude was spinning a mix of tunes that we love (Surf/Exotica/Hawaiian). Good to see everyone on our too short visit and hope to see you all again soon.

That was kind of surreal seeing Marie behind the Tonga Hut bar and BTD spinning the tunes. Mentally I associate them both with Tiki in the OC and not the Valley.

But... I liked it !!

Great cocktails Marie, I especially enjoyed the Tropical "sazerac" (I forget the name ).

And yes BTD, you did a good job too.

Great time last night!
And, here's some photos to prove it...

"Ok boys, I'm back, what'll ya have?"


"What's she making?"


Love Potion #13


"It was about this big."


BTD's pick


"Excellent choice."


"Hey, I remember when I used to do that."








Too much reverb for one booth...


...it spilled into the next.












"It was about this high."


One last round...


One last song...
