just back from Las Vegas, Sunshine shares his experience of ordering mai tais from 6 different sin city casino bars just to see what would happen. Some bars were certainly better than others and those you may think would serve the better drink didn't necessarily do so.

Be there September 29 from 11am to 3pm for signature ZTL cocktails, great food, LIVE podcast recording and you may be chosen to play Whats In Kalani's Bra!Read More

We like to please our listeners. A few requests rolled in recently to have another co host join us on the podcast. Someone from the tiki community who is also fun behind the microphone. Susan Nelson stepped up to the invite and joined Sunshine in the Zen Tiki Lounge for a fun hour of drinking and conversation.Read More
This episode of ZTL is very special. Pumpkin has blessed us with her "witty" form of conversation which is usually enjoyed in small doses such as this one hour podcast. The show begins with a perfectly appropriate summer libation, the Sand Trap. After just one Sand Trap, Pumpkin becomes mentally stuck in her usual low brow rolling thought train that includes bedroom things she does not do, memories of being a mall rat and a strange rant about Yma Sumac running into a volcano.Read More
Place Holder: full blog notes in progress...please listen and enjoy for now.
Below: Sunshine Tiki takes you on a quick preview of room party hosted by Zen Tiki Lounge at Tiki Caliente 10 in Palm Springs, May 2018
Those of us who attend weekend long tiki parties often have a hard time explaining to others what we did for 3-5 days. The best way is to show you. Below you see lots of fantastic cocktails from all those who hosted on the crawl this year at Tiki Caliente 10. Room themes were outstanding as you can see. Pirates, mermaids, casino, Godzilla and Monkeys just to name a few.
