Pusser’s Rum is a world class, award-winning aged dark rum with a distinctively smooth and well-rounded taste. The blend originates from stills in Trinidad and Guyana and is heavily influenced by wooden pot stills that were signature of the Royal Navy beginning in the 1700s and still in operation today. Pusser’s Rum is rich and aromatic with a full bodied, complex flavor. It is crafted in small batches and continues to win accolades amongst its peers. Pusser’s Rum is one of the most historic and traditional rums still available today. (Link site to graphic)
THE CAT EYE CLUB
A crispy cool scorpion bowl in the glow of a Mondrian glass wall with crazy hep beats softly lulling in the background? Don’t mind if I do!
If that sounds like a dream, keep reading! The Cat Eye Club is a retro cocktail lounge & tiki bar located in Downtown San Diego in the heart of East Village across from Petco Park. Cat Eye Club is inspired by the late 50’s, early 60’s nightlife culture. It pays homage to mid-century cocktail trends with an emphasis on classic and tiki cocktails.
Gaucho Rum exemplifies a zest for adventure similar to what Frank Miller (Partner of Cat Eye Club Cocktail Bar and Tiki Bar) and Ray Digilio (Master Distiller of Kill Devil Spirit Co.) had in mind when they set out to create it. What were they in pursuit of? Perhaps it was to concoct a rum that rouses someone to strap a shark under each foot, grab a partner and water ski to that magnificent oasis in the sun. Others speculate that their motive could have been originality; an all-out quest to formulate a signature rum that rejuvenates classic cocktails and can also be enjoyed neat. Either way, these natives invite you to bask in the big, tropical, sweet, smooth taste of a spirit made 100% from cane to glass here in San Diego, California. (Link site to graphic)
PARTY ON MONSTER ISLAND
From rubber Godzillas tearing apart the South Seas to surfin’, Go Go dancing Frankenstein and Wolfman, creatures have always been lurking in paradise. This year Tiki Oasis celebrates our monster brethren from King Kong (1939), Godzilla and Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) to the famous monsters of Hollywood (1932-1950s).
Like lovers of Polynesian Pop, many of the classic monsters we know share the Modern Primitive ethos. Some were discovered in mysterious, exotic, tropical lands but others originated in urban areas and frolicked with average humans.
While Godzilla loved to visit major metropolis’ like Tokyo he lives on and originates from Monster Island.
The original king of the jungle King Kong was a modern primitive and could be seen cavorting on major architectural landmarks when he wasn’t picking up on chicks in his hometown.
Even the Creature from the Black Lagoon left the Amazon and visited the US.
The classic city monsters made famous in films (The Mummy, Frankenstien, Dracula, Wolfman, The Invisible Man) later got hip to the times and joined the beach/dance party scene. Not only did monsters leave their remote islands and come to the beaches, the Hollywood monster crowd threw their own shindig.
Don your rubber mask and join the monster party at Tiki Oasis 2016!
