Man, you guys are ruthless with Robert. It's his opinion of the bar and since this is a forum for tiki, it should be all right to air it out without getting squashed. Everyone has a certain level of expectation of what a tiki bar should be or how it should operate. I've been to a tiki bar in S.F. (that will remain nameless) that has been there for years, but serves pretty lame drinks and has a decor that could be best described as "Hawaiian outhouse" with a smell to match. Now, I don't expect to be served a drink in a tiki mug or scorpion bowl, but they should be able to make a cocktail better than I can at home or provide a little eye candy at the very least.
Here's a question for the TC community:
Just what is your threshold for what constitutes a Real Tiki Bar?
By the way Doug, the Kona ROCKS and is a real tiki bar. It just needs a sign...
