Well, my favorite Tiki bar in all the land, the Tonga Hut, has a not-so-secret club called the Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard (which you can read about on the Tonga Hut website). In order to gain membership, one must drink every drink in the Grog Log over the course of one year (not all at once). Once you’ve completed the task, you get a plaque on the wall, and a fez, and a special coin that gets you a discount on drinks, and the undying admiration of all your peers.
Like many things in life, I’ve left a chunk of this until the last minute, and I have until August 13th to finish up the list. Follow along on this Tiki smorgasbordÂ over atÂ Instagram and, new to the dauntingly long list of social media applications I need to post on, Periscope (look for the links on Twitter, I have no idea how to link this up yet)!
So please, pull up a virtual barstool and join me for a few rounds of Tiki cocktails this summer.
