John-O's right (as always) - Albies has steaks done to order, a pianist playing requests and...

like I said about King's -

Malted. Flour. WAFFLES. Mini and XXX.

OK, Albie's Beef Inn is good, Adam's (at least the last time I ate there they could not
make good scrambled eggs, how hard is it, not hard I say!)

Cammo is there an " Original Pancake House " in the area?, because that's a good breakfast place in my book
I eat at the one near Fallbrook.

Enough of this food talk. Save it for Breakfast Oasis 2014 !!

In the meantime here's an interesting Hillbilly Pop Culture factoid...

What fictional hillbillies share almost the exact same time line as Mid-century Tiki (and pre-Tiki) style ??

Li'l Abner !!



This daily comic series debuted in 1934, the same year Donn Beach opened his Beachcomber Cafe in Hollywood.

The strip was written by Al Capp and continued to be published in newspapers for an astonishing 43 years, ending in 1977. The previous year we saw the opening of Trader Vic's Atlanta, the Bahooka in Rosemead, and the Chef Shangri-La in Chicago. I think it's safe to say those were the last establishments of the original Tiki period.

So for every day you could imbibe in a Zombie cocktail, you could enjoy the daily exploits of Li'l Abner and the wacky denizens of Dogpatch. I never really paid attention to the strip during its original run, but I have discovered its satirical loopiness in reprint collections.

I understand the characters even traveled to tropical islands. I wonder if they encountered any Tikis there ?? In over 15,000 published adventures, I would have liked to think so.

And I'm looking forward to one of the T.O. room parties serving up this iconic concoction this July...



EDIT - And here's your mixer...

Interesting post, Grog. And this has nothing to do with it, but I though it was worth mentioning.


Just want to remind everybody that "Hulabilly is an American music style derived from the blending of ROCKABILLY and Haole Hawaiian music."

I feel like the enthusiasm for this theme is heavy on the HILL-billy side of things. Don't get me wrong, I love hillbilly. It co-exists and pre-dates rockabilly... Just wanted to make sure people realize that ROCKABILLY is the big theme driver for this year's Tiki Oasis.

Don't make me take your Top shelf, well crafted, positively wonderful vintage cocktail
away from you John-O (Hey that's tasty!), you know that Hulabilly & Hillbilly are not the same thing!

Anyone who says different will be getting a visit from poltergeist Elvis (Polter-Elvis? Elvis-Geist?)
and he shall be a rock-in & sway-in in anger!

Thanks Spike for getting this out there, as my initial reception was Hulabilly is not the same as Hillbilly, yet that is where a majority of posts are going with the latter theme. Know your themes!

Now you know what to do...

I have to agree. Hula billy not hillbilly or straight rockabilly. Usually I'd say do what you want - but with this, it's too easy to loose the main theme. I would suggest - just a suggestion- we try to pull it off true to the spirit of the thing.

Well so much for my "Why the Beverly Hillbillies are Tiki." post.

Damn purists !! I'm going to Hukilau instead.

Sounds like a perfect course! I'll bring a finishing "medal" for you! Can't wait!

Fantastic! I can't wait to see what the "medal" is! hahaha! I'll warn you: I usually go pretty early!

The King's Inn waffles are known all over town, they use a malted flour and you can get them full size or "mini" which go great with a cup o' joe first thing:


They also have a GREAT mexican food restaurant called the Amigo Spot that serves some of the best tamales in town, super sizzling high-rise fajitas, and happy hour specials. The food comes with little mexican flags on it. You arrive at the Amigo Spot from outside across a drawbridge.

It's a mid-60's motel maintained perfectly. I find it bizarre that people coming to Tiki Oasis complain that the King's Inn is an "old place" with "strange headboards" on the beds but they'll "stay there anyway." ?!?!?!?!?

They dress up someone in a Waffle King costume on weekends who walks around waving at his subjects.

The heck with the St. Louis Arch, THIS should be a national treasure.



mmmmmmmmmm, look at those waffles! Thanks Cammo
