Kelly the most inventive barkeep around. I know whenever you're pouring it's going to be great. And last night was no exception. Really good to see you and everyone should look forward to sampling your concoctions.

Hey thanks to everyone on Tiki Central who came to support Hiphipahula on her first day at the Tonga Hut! We had a great time and it was a hit! She'll be back to start our contest to see who can get their name on a permanent plaque at the legendary Tonga Hut. The rules are simple: come hang out with Hiphipahula and try a featured drink from the Grog Log. If you make it through the whole thing you're in! Starting Saturday Sep 19th with the Ancient Mariner. Thank you & good luck!

"..contest.."

"..make it through the whole thing you're in.."

What? I'm slightly confused here

One example of each drink listed in the Grog Log? Who's gonna keep track of that?!

Kelly, Please consider creating a Tonga Hut signature drink i.e. The Drooling Bastard?

Jeremy please PM me..I want to present The Tonga Hut with something cool.

Cheers! Greg

Well G, I'm happy to say most definitely, The Tonga Hut DOES have Original Drinks on it's menu and has for quite some time invented by our own Tiki Centralities they are,
The TONGA LEI -created by our own PiPhiRho!
The GINGER FLAME -created by Suzy atomikitty ! come on in and I'll serve you one all dressed up...ask and you will receive

As far as New Original Drinks We are already on it as I type! Jeremy and/or Ana will explain the The Grog Log competition better. This is an opportunity to see your name in lights so to speak... making the Tonga Hut an even better Tiki experience for you!..."Making a better Tonga Hut for the Love of Tiki"

Remember to come in SATURDAY'S 4-8pm & try a menu full of Original Trade Secret Drink Recipes from Hiphipahula and Trader Tom & Hiphip! I appreciate all of you and all your support plus, I get to hang out with you all! So I will see you Saturday!

" I just got back from Tonga Hut. I have been going there for the last ten years or so and I have to say it keeps on getting better and better. I like going there in the early afternoon when it is quiet. I had a Voodoo Juice that was out of this world and the bartender had just gotten the ingredients to make the Hibiscus Hula Cocktail, I tried one of those as well, a little too sweet for me but very good tasting. I have to say I feel real lucky to have Tonga Hut so close to my house, it is the perfect tiki bar. It is old, authentic, it has great music, it it is full of locals old and young, it has tropical drinks, it is dark, the TV shows old time movies and no sound, there are lots of tikis and artwork everywhere to enjoy and best of all, it doesn't pretend to be tiki because it is a real tiki bar from the 50's..... "

I did a "Drooling Bastard" drink for the 50th Anniversary. I'll send Kelly the recipe.

And yes, there are several drinks on the Tonga Hut menu that are unique to the Tonga Hut. Kelly has already mentioned the Tonga Lei and Ginger Flame. There is also:

- Squirrel in Paradise (or something like that)
- Sum Ting Wong
- Voodoo Juice

and maybe some others as well.

Hey I have been promoting this place for a long time.

[quote} from 2006

I finally got a chance to go to the Tonga Hut last night. I highly recommend the place. Nicole the bartender made the best rum filled drinks in different tiki mugs. When the owners called in and found out we were TC people they bought us free drinks. The music was exotica great. The decor was great. I saw a Kirby painting on the wall as well.We met some nice people there also. For what it's worth this is one of the last remaining true tiki bars around in Southern California. I think we should support it and keep it going. Maybe we should organize a get together for all TCers to see this place and all the changes the owners have made here. I think the place needs more recognition from us since we want to see original tiki bars have staying power.
