Shoot, I had to look up "bandy" in the dictionary. No longer a common word I guess. Perhaps it should read "bandy about their drinking". I agree, "bandy their drinking" isn't right.
1 : to bat (as a tennis ball) to and fro
2 a : to toss from side to side or pass about from one to another often in a careless or inappropriate manner b : exchange; especially : to exchange (words) argumentatively c : to discuss lightly or banteringly d : to use in a glib or offhand manner —often used with about <bandy these statistics about with considerable bravado — Richard Pollak>
3 archaic : to band together

Well, I figured I'd chime in since I actually made it out there on a recent family trip to Disneyland. I had two drinks while I was there, the Big Kahuna (because I wanted the mug) and a Pupule (I think that's how it was spelled). The Pupule was good but nothing spectacular. I really liked the Big Kahuna, enough that I've been trying to recreate it, unsuccessfully. I agree that it was a little light and fruity, but I thought it was great. Anybody have the recipe?

Popped in last night for a couple of cocktails. The place was DEAD, but for the most part so was all of LA Live.
At least it was a quiet relaxing environment, when I was there last it was like a USC Frat party.
The Mai Tai and Navy Grog were pretty good, not great, but pretty good. A lot of the other drinks all seem to taste the same to me. The burgers were very tasty. Happy Hour is a great deal but it's only during the week and ends at 6pm.
Here's question for you all. Does anyone ever ask them to substitute the TV rum with something else? If so what? Will they even do that?
