Updates and events

Posted by TraderTiki on March 7th, 2008 — Posted in Bilge, Events, MxMo, Site

Just a few notes on up and coming events and site changes.  Nothing so thrilling as opening a new bottle of Ron Añejo Aniversario, but just some niftys nonetheless.

First off, I’m going to give the old heave-ho to the google ads.  This should speed up the site a bit, which is worth a bit more to me than what the ads generate (just less than a bottle of bottom shelf booze).

Second, a reminder that Mar. 18th is the next Tiki Third Tuesday at Teardrop Lounge!  Yes, it’s a recurring monthly event, with a special menu of tiki drinks and tropical cocktails put together by yours truly and slung by the magnificent bastards behind the bar at Teardrop.  The special menu is available all night long, and rumor has it the drinks may even show up as nightly specials now and again, so be sure to drop in and let them know I sent ya.  I’m not even sure I can express in words my gratitude for their dedication to the evening, and the culture of the cocktail,so head over there and express it for me with cash!  The cocktails and conversation you trade it for are well worth the investment.

Last, I’ll be hosting Mixology Monday in May, with the theme of RUM!  So post a review of an exceptional rum, make a fancy new rum drink, grab an island and talk about its various rums, work up a rum combination that’d make Donn Beach drool, just go for it!  Damn you Rick for coming up with such a fantastic theme for this month, I’ll have to whip up something really deadly for that.

Nice Tiare, I’ll have to throw that together.

I’ll take it the sherry in the garnish is a typo?

okay, 3 things.

1) what a fantastic site you got going on TraderTiki… I’ve gotten a bit of a tiki bug lately and your site has given me lots of drinks which my customers are now the beneficiaries of…

2) just went to the Teardrop Lounge for the first time last week and had a great time. wish i could make it for your tiki party, but if it’s a monthly thing, i’ll try and get down there for one…

3) thank you for the Aku Aku!! it is one of my new favorites and will be gracing our cocktail menu very soon. everyone who has tried it at my bar has freaked out over it….

cheers and great work

I like to hear that the Tiki bug is spreading. With all the focus on classic cocktails lately, we can’t forget the 40 some-odd years that Tropical drinks dominated the scene!

Let me know next time you’re in town, I’m always up for meeting people at Teardrop, and of course the home bar’s always open.

The Aku Aku is just lovely, just like the Missionary’s Downfall. I’ll have to get up to Seattle and check out Union sometime in the near future.
