... drinking a polynesian cocktail (correct term?), you preverts

Question is, does one consider the actual drink, whether it fits the lexicon of BB Grog Log etc., or whether it was in an actual Tiki establishment?

I'm pretty sure my first-ever-in-the-whole-world polynesian cocktail was in a chinese restaurant called Magic Wok in Central West End, st. louis, during college. The drink was a Scorpion, coz it matches my zodiac sign It was fine for a n00b, and the jones for the fruit/rum drink was well established.

I'm pretty sure my first "in situ" drink was a Tiki Tumbler at the Honolulu. Nuff said, it rocked and it was the first time I got a tiki mug froma drink I actually bought.

take it away - although let's give condiments a rest - ?

Yeah, I was going to say " I remember my first time, it was cold, dark, and I was alone".

I remember drinking from my Dad's home made Mai Tai in a Tiki mug. I thought those mugs were so freakin' cool. Actually I still think they're pretty cool, only now they're in my house, which really is even cooler actually. I was maybe 4 or 5 and living in Guam. No wonder I ended up like this.

I don't think this was my first tiki drink, but it was my first well prepared one. It was a Trader Vic's Rum Barrel in a quiet corner booth of the Washington DC Vic's in 1994. sigh...good times.

Let me see...........

My first time was at a bar in Ala Moana (I think it was called Mai Tai's) on the island of Oahu. My friends called the drink a bomb-bu-cha-hana-hou-tikiblast. It was served in a mini kava bowls. I think I had about 7 bowls. Those were the good old days.....

I haven't had adobo in ages. Last time was at Yakitori II (
http://www.yakitori2.com )in San Diego. It's not on their menu any more. I first had it at Yakitori, which was one of the few restaurants on Guam way back then. (In case anyone is wondering, the others were McDonald's, Shakey's Pizza, and some German place that I can't remember the name of.) I think adobo is a Philipino dish originally. SPAM was common and I know I've had it, but not in 20+ years.

As for Dads, well the Mai Tai thing was cool. Being gone for 9 months at a time on a sub, not so cool.

Trader Vics, Washington, Scorpion

I don't remember the year because that's the year I started drinking to forget how many years had gone by.

I just made a batch of Scorps at the Lagoon Lounge™ (Alnshelly Limited) last night. Along with that fantastic raw fish salad, from the New Zealander's recipe found in the archives here.

Probably a mai tai somewhere, but my first real polynesian/ tiki drink was a Zombie at the Tonga Room about four years ago.

I remember my parents drinking them at restaurants, but they weren't sharing tastes because I was too young. I didn't see a tiki mug in a restaurant until about 25 years later when TGI Fridays had a tiki drink promo. I ordered a Mai Tai. Don't know what happened to the mug though.

It would have to be the Tiki Love Bowl at a place called At Random in Milwaukee. It was shared with a beautiful brunette that came with me. Not much longer after that we got married.

I'm gonna assume that Blue Hawaiis & Ti-D-Bols don't count, so I'll have to say a standard Hawaiian Hotel MaiTai in Waikiki in 2001.
