    It’s happening again…

    I’ll be touring the west coast starting August 5th in Tacoma and ending August 13th in Palm Springs.

    Celebrating a year after the release of the Mai-Kai book, I and my editor Mrs. Swanky will be visiting the west coast.

    First stop will be Seattle and in particular Tacoma Cabana. I’ll be doing a presentation there along with the book signing Saturday August 5th starting at 4PM FB Event here, tickets for presentation online here and at the door.

    Next we head to San Francisco and a book signing at Smuggler’s Cove on Monday August 7th at 6PM. Rumor is we will visit Humuhumu’s Balhi H’ai as well.

    From there we jet on to LA and a signing with Bob & Leroy at Oceanic Arts on Wednesday Aug. 9th from 2 to 4. That’s leaves time to get over to the Tiki Ti for the toast to Ray.

    And on Friday at noon, I will give a presentation at Tiki Oasis, and then on Saturday at 11 I’ll be signing books at Tiki Oasis.

    From there we go to Palm Springs for a book signing at the Tonga Hut Saturday at 7PM.

    We are looking forward to exploring all these places with the ohana and signing lots of books. Come visit us when we are in your city!

  • Leilani Hawaiian Rum

    Many years ago at the World’s Longest Yardsale,¬†an empty bottle of Leilani Hawaiian Rum turned up. Sven Kirsten said he has a display that held the bottle and was looking for a one to put in it. That put me on a search.

    Tiki TI

    At the Tiki Ti you may have seen this. It’s an “adapted” display. A few years ago I happened upon the display in mint condition. Now I was in the spot Sven was. Until last week…

    Behold the Leilani Hawaiian Rum display, with a vintage, unopened bottle of Leilani Hawaiian Rum!

    LHR2

    Yes, that state tax seal is intact. Beach Bum Berry ranks it as one of his favorite white rums. I have tasted it via a few airline sized bottles over the years. I think I will keep this seal unbroken for a long time. I love having this perfect display in the bar!
