It seems I'm going to a "tiki bar" tonight that my wife's friends are all excited about. They had me check out the link...

I see at least 5 major things that are incorrect, can you name them?

1) No tikis
2) Neon lighting
3) Chocolate Kiss Martini
4) "Are you a sports fan?? Then come check out the Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings on one of our five brand new flat screens."
5) Plastic beer cups
6) $10 Mojito
7) Besides no tikis, what do they think makes this a tiki bar? Not even thatch,bamboo or anything.

Hmmm even thou I do not want a choclate martini and most nights I would rather not have the TV on in the background looks ok to me. A not so good tiki bar is better than a red onion any day. Good company can make up for a lot of the down falls. I say go and make the best of it.

It's a trick question. There is no tiki drink.

"Tin Fish Tiki Tini - Vodka, Southern Comfort, Amarito [sic], Pineapple and OJ with Grenadine"

Sounds gross.

Hey FZ!
Just don't think of it as a tiki bar, since obviously the only thing tiki about it is four letters that they put next to "Bar" on the sign.

Think of it instead as a pretty view of a harbor with a nice outside bar with drinks that you can't afford to buy.

No - wait.

Scratch that last part and get your wife's friends to buy all of your drinks. There actually are some yummy cocktails on the menu if you overlook their names....and get them free.

But avoid this one: "Tin Fish Tiki Tini - Vodka, Southern Comfort, Amarito, Pineapple and OJ with Grenadine." That's the vomit-maker.
(I'm hoping "Amarito" is a typo rather than Amaretto flavored *something.*)

Ok, wait -

I just read the food menu:
$2 per oyster.
$1 per buffalo wing
$7 for chips and salsa.

$7.00 FOR *CHIPS AND SALSA*!!!????
I've been appalled at seeing $2 for that combo (they're free on most menus in Texas), but $7.00?!?!

OK, like I said: your wife's friends are picking up the bill. 'Nuff said.

That's about the only way I can stomach the new "Trader Vic's Lounge" in Beverly Hills. By forcing myself to consider it only as a very nice hotel pool bar.

But at least Trader Vics Lounge serves good quality tropical tiki drinks. Even though they are also not affordable ($14 Mai Tai and up, up, up!) to many.

This place...looks like your standard lightly decorated hotel marina or wharf bar.

If only they were. Based on a long history of the bill being split "evenly" , tonight I'm asking for separate checks! Perhaps the chips & salsa were flown in this morning from a Texas border town?


But I do agree with your mug 1/2 full view of the situation, everything is better next to the water.

They open at 12 noon?

any bar worth their salt opens at 6am

even with the word "tiki" omitted from the name, I'd stear clear of that place.
