ABRA-CA-SEXY!

June 29th – July 5th 2009

What do you do when the economy is in the dumper? Well if you’re not thinking straight you decide to return to stand-up and a working vacation in Fabulous Las Vegas!! But in July? Sure!! Where you then proceed to eat it twice a night in front of people who actually paid to be there. In July! It didn't really matter though since I was in Las Vegas for the first time in 2 years and there were new things to see. Tiki-Kate stopped in for a little while and we checked out BLT Burger at the Mirage - WOW that place is good!! I ate there more than once but would have preferred to have eaten there every day. How about Frankie’s Tiki Room? - What an AWESOME place that is! Good drinks! Fantastic atmosphere, 106° outside and maybe 65° inside? Great job Bamboo Ben. Plus I was able to get some of the new Moss swizzles!



I also tried the Rhumbar at the Mirage and I can't say enough good things about it. The cocktails I had - The 1944 Mai Tai, The Hemingway Daiquiri, a Caipirinha and The Tortonga were all excellent! Is it Tiki? No but they serve their Scorpions in Mai-Kai bowls, If that helps.

Q: Did you do any gambling while you were there?
A: Only on the Tahiti Joe’s Mai Tai.
Q: Did you win?
A: No.

The Kahiki Kai at Frankie's, it's coconutty but it 's good and The Hemingway Daiquiri at Rhumbar. I really should've had more drinks.

I was blinded by darkness and waited for about three minutes before I took another step.

Great travelogue, Boris. Las Vegas is one of my favorite decadent escape places. And I love how dark Frankie's is. Everyone looks good in that light.

Baking in Bakersfield

August 30th 2009

Q: Why Bakersfield?
A: Well Bakersfield is home to Bill Lee’s Bamboo Chopsticks, as in Bill Lee’s Bamboo Chopsticks O.M.C. Three Face Bucket Mug fame.



Knowing it was still there we had to take a look, it’s more like a P.F. Chang’s now with Terra Cotta Soldiers instead of bamboo but the food was good and the Mai Tai (Kinda Fruity but finished strong.) came in a coconut mug so I was happy. In a place like this you start thinking the thrift stores must be filled with those bucket mugs right? Wrong! and now I know that if you think Tiki-Kate is going to concentrate on finding shirts while you can concentrate on finding mugs you’d be wrong, WAY WRONG! I zigged when I should of zagged and Kate finds a Trader Vic’s skull mug! In Bakersfield? I’ll go start the car.



Q: Okay seriously why Bakersfield?
A: If that’s not enough for you then how about the Rice Bowl sign next door to Bill Lee’s? You gotta love that.



Q: You know this is Tiki Central and Not Giant Restaurant Sign Central right?
A: Fine you want Tiki’s we went looking for Tiki’s ~ the
Lanai Gardens has some and even though it looks like they’ve seen much better days they’re still very cool. Speaking of cool it’s like 100° out here and we’re 2 hours from home so I'll go start the car.
