After getting back to Canada and dealing with the cold on almost a daily basis I was ready for another leg on the Tiki Road Trip. Back to LA and first stop was Trader Sams at the Disney Hotel.
This place is really a great place in so many ways. The doors carved by Leroy from Oceanic are only a hint of what lies inside. The decor is Enchanted Tiki Room / Jungle cruise with lots of cool little things on the walls. Even a little Indiana Jones. Several of the drinks are delivered with some crazy antics. It makes the place fun and way more interesting than any other Tiki bar. The bartender Kelly really knows how to make a great Tiki cocktail. Also they usually have several great tiki mugs to match their signature drinks.
The drinks went down rather quickly and I had a serious buzz going real quick. Met Gene MacDonald, Swag Master of South Pacific Promotions. He showed me lots of cool tiki projects he had going including some stuff for Shag. What a nice guy and his stuff was real good quality.
Stopping in the next day after touring Adventureland a met another great guy. Nomeus from The Florida tiki scene. After grabbing a 151 swizzle together we made plans to meet at Tiki Ti a couple of days later...

Soma more visual treats of what Disney actually did right.




A couple of nice works of art for the collection. The Shipwreak and Krakatoa


When the Krakatoa is ordered this Volcano puts on a show. The Shipwreak in a bottle is very cool too.
