I am super excited about the tour!! I can't wait to see all the other home bars and meet all the LA tiki officiants!
We (actually just Mark) have been working really hard on building our tiki bar. We bought our 1957 Palmer and Krisel house just four months ago, but fortunately it had a very cool free standing bar right in the middle of everything!

Mark is pulling out all of his old Trader Vic's recipes to plan potent drinks for each stop. He is very picky about his Mai Tais and squeezes all the juices by hand and makes his own simple syrups.

I have planned some fabulous pupus for each bar, too. My famous coconut cupcakes and Little Brownie Brownies will served as well.

I look forward to meeting everyone on the the big day!

Very Best,
Gem

Two weeks and counting!

Have you got your Crawl clothes all laid out?

The Home Tiki Bar Crawl is getting closer!
I hope you all have been practicing your "crawl".
There's still time to make a reservation.
Don't wait till the last minute to slip in under the wire.

i'm really looking forward to this. i'm hoping that in a smaller group setting, i'll get to know some fellow TC'ers ('cause i'm kinda shy).

Yeah, I'm wondering how many are going as well. I'm tiki-shy, too. Hopefully after a few rounds I can loosen up!

We're actually a pretty fun and mellow bunch, although I have heard it said that we tend to be a bit "hoity toity".

If we didn't have previous plans we would have done this tour. We have been to the first home bar pictured and it (and I'm sure the others too) should not be missed. I won't spoil anything here, but wait til you see it in it's proper lighting.....very moody. Best home bar I have ever seen. If you have not signed up for the tour ... do it now.

It is almost here (and our bar is almost done!!). We finally got to meet Murph in person, at a little pre-crawl juicing and tasting last night, and he is the very nicest guy! We are really looking forward to meeting everyone else tonight! It sounds like a super fun group of people will be attending. The bars sound amazing!!

Well, I had better get baking. Only nine hours to go!

P.S. Trader John, Please contact Murph to see if there are still tickets. I think that we have been sold out for a while but there could be a last minute cancellation.

Cool pix, Joe Kona!

I am so EXITED about this tour!! I can't wait... all day yesterday I was thinking about it, and I realized I was looking forward to it as much as I anticipated Christmas Day when I was a kid... but this will be better, because there will be tropical drinks and tikis, plus the chance to meet some fellow TCers in person!
