Forbidden Island Alameda

Posted by TraderTiki on August 30th, 2007 — Posted in Bilge, Places, Rum

Here’s a short video I found on YouTube, shot at Forbidden Island, starring Martin Cate, the man, the myth, the martiki.

I have no idea what’s with the music though.

I am passionate about Forbidden Island, because so is the man behind it. Martin took his hobby, and made it his profession. Every square inch of the place shows his dedication to perfection in attempting to recreate the atmosphere of a classic Tiki bar (within the restrictions placed by the cuonty of Alameda). Not to mention that a few of my collectibles are still on “permanent loan”. When my wife and I were moving to Oregon, I distinctly remember searching for my big pufferfish… only to recall it had been left in Alameda. The better for the bar, for Ohana!

If you haven’t been, I strongly encourage you to visit, and throw some dollars down for drinks made in the true classic tiki style.
