It's been my experience that after 9pm on Saturday, people won't notice/care if there is ice. I'm really looking forward to this.

Oh yes, Tane will be working his magic on the other side of the bar during the art show premiere. I'm just the master of my own domain as far as my drink menu goes. The lovely Violetgirl will be assisting, but I'll be doing all the measuring and shaking. To reach my goal of 150-175 drinks, the menu will consist solely of 4-ounce cocktail drinks, perfect for perusing the fine art.

To whet some appetites, here's what's in store:

They look delicious. Is the room crawl only on Thursday night? I won't be there until Friday afternoon so I'm afraid I'll have to miss this.

I'm sure I'll be able to find the "corruption" on my own. Good to hear that some will be hosting a Tiki Bar Room on Friday Night as well, even unofficially.

Feeling your pain Hayward. I am working on my punch recipe. Lots of research.

The big question and commodity will be ICE. Any thoughts or past experiences on the inevitable run on, lack of and sources for ICE. I just have this feeling it's going to go fast. Maybe we can figure out how to bag and stockpile some?



Some tips from a local for those looking for ice, liquor, fruit and other foodstuffs:

Head west over the 17th Street Causeway (about 2 miles from the Cabana) and you'll find a treasure trove of merchants at 17th Street and Cordova (just before U.S. 1).

Go left (south) and you'll find a big plaza with a Total Wine superstore (lots of rum and liquors available) plus a Publix supermarket (good fresh produce).

Go right (north) and you'll find a Crown Liquors and Winn-Dixie supermarket. Also, just west of Cordova on 17th you'll find another liquor store. And all of the above should have ice.

If you don't have the means to venture off the beach I'm pretty sure there's a 7-Eleven within walking distance to the north of the hotel plus some smaller liquor stores. But don't forget that everything on the beach is geared toward tourists so it may be pricey.

The Sun-Trolley is a FREE bus. It picks up and drops off directly in front of the Bahia Cabana (I think every 15 minutes) - and drops off at the Publix shopping center. You can not make it any easier!! Just park and car and forget it!!

Lots of restaurants and shops along the 17th Street Causeway. Take the Trolley North to hit the Strip or Beach Place.

Ooooooh, as a California girl who loves ice cream and has no source of Blue Bell within 1000 miles, I see lots of ice cream in my future next week! If anyone has a hankering for Blue Bell, just come find me and I'll be more than willing to accompanying you on a Publix run. Tropical Florida air, Tiki drinks, and Blue Bell homemade vanilla. I'm going to be in heaven.

You can have the Vanilla, I want the Cookies & Cream!

I was a happy puppy when Blue Bell finally made it all the way down here to SoFla.

Will there be a compiled list of rooms and times somewhere for those of us who will forget to look at this thread in a week?
