There are some evenings when we must depart from usual form, fly far from the typical dive bar conventions, and stray into territory not often seen by those on the tour. While this often means far flung destinations (the valley) shady locales (venice) or the edge of the gentriverse (downtown) this week we will be smack dab in the middle of typical dive bar territory but it is the bar itself which is so different.

In fact this may very well be the most unique bar on the tour so far. Tiki Ti, as its name implies, is a Tiki Bar… one of the last of its kind. It doesn’t offer cheap beer or wine (other than a 10-year-old room temperature Amstel behind the bar available for $50, so they say) and rather serves only strong tropical concoctions in the neighborhood of 10 dollars apiece. This is tour worthy, as each drink easily has the alcohol of two, so be careful with your consumption, and plan accordingly. But we caution you, while you may be temped to knock back a Blue Hawaiian (Rum, Vodka, Blue Curacao, & Galliano) followed by a Scorpion (Lime & Fruit Juices, Virgin Island Rum, Jamaican Rum) and then a Stealth (Kahlua, 151 Rum, Amaretto, Grand Marnier, & Baileys) it might not be good for your morning. In addition to the rather epic beverages, you can smoke cigarettes, cigars, and pipes to your hearts content (and lungs determent) as the bar is family owned and operated, a holdover from a simpler time in the golden state.

There is a rumor that the famous Ray’s Mistake (made with Botanic Liqueurs, Passion Fruit, & Dark Rum) is available for 5 dollars before 9PM on Wednesdays, so you may well find us there just a bit before the normal hour. Come for one drink, or stay for one too many. Bring anyone and everyone, and join us for a great time in the middle of the week. If you arrive early or late, look for the people having a damn good time (it’ll be us), or start having a damn good time on your own (we’ll find you, if the friendly regulars don’t find you first).

Carpe Drink’em,

Alex, Damien, & Travis? - WDBT Co-czars
