thoughts on drinking, life and mixing the two.
This year’s Tiki Oasis has been a smash! Parties, people, atmosphere and wicked sugary hangovers are the norm with these fez-wearing and fun-loving folks. This year’s theme is Exotic Espionage and Polynesian Pulp. The hotel hallways are full of spies and secret agents who have made it their mission to get rum drinks into the hands of the people. I really am impressed. Hotel rooms are converted to party rooms with bars, music and lighting.
Crawling room party to room party is great and sometimes the hallways in between break out into migrating scrums of drinking and revelry.
We met some great people and had a wild time. My bitters were very popular and as always I am touched by the support and love of the drinking crowd. The nice lady modeling my bitters bottle makes beautiful eye-popping corsets at Butterfly Frillies Corsets.
While I didn’t have a room of my own this year, Rob Burr and I busted out the travel bar and took over an ice machine. In minutes, we had created a pop-up bar and were pushing punch and slugs of Plantation 5 year rum. Huge thanks to Mark Berge, James Teitelbaum, Dave Stolte, and many, many others for stopping by. We got lots of love and had loads of fun – can’t wait to pop up again somewhere soon.
Ready for Another Round?
