Winter Zombie Night at the Aloha Alcohula (TM)

Last Friday, the Aloha Alcohula (TM)* had a little impromptu tiki drink gathering - featuring nothing less than Zombies made from the original c1938 recipe by Don the Beachcomber. And featuring nothing less than your intrepid hostess' homemade cinnamon syrup & falernum (#8) to boot.

Winter Zombie Night was dedicated to two people: the joey Zone and the lovely Adrienne at Stop & Shop who risked life & limb to retrieve the last 4 existing bottles of lime juice from the very back of the tallest shelf in the store. Your hostess wasn't able to milk enough limes for the Zombie-making without further damaging her delicate little wrists.

The joey Zone did a fine, fine job of giving an extensive tour to Mike & Sandy of 9th Wave fame, all the while explaining the provenance of every single piece of tchotchka - some of which I didn't even know, such as the fine lockers I purchased to house CDs & DVDs that apparently had belonged to a strip club in the past.....(we suspect it was probably the Log 'n' Lantern. )

So, thanks to those who came & drank and didn't throw up little fruity bits!

*Best tiki bar in Willimantic

I missed tjZ drinkin' the hard stuff?! Damn!

Can you just put in a pneumatic tube between Albany and Willimantic so we can just jump in and show up at the Aloha Alcohula moments later? I'm tired of missing all the fun!

Miss Wendy assures me that the latest decor must be seen to be believed.

Yeah, joey Z drinkin'!
And after we got home (I drove, of course), he had to shovel the ice and snow plowed in front of my parking space so I could park. He was ready to puke his guts up in the snowbank!!!

What a man!

I think we need a special Albany-to-Willi TARDIS....shall we triangulate with Wendy over the winter break to bring you back to the Island Retreat in Willimantic*?

Hmmmm....jZ made it sound as if the Zombie merely rolled off of his back....guess it just rolled around in his gut! Whatta man, indeed!

*AKA, the best tiki bar in Willimantic

Gotta get the TARDIS out of the shop. Lost the sonic screwdriver and now we're all in a kerfuffle. Perhaps we can borrow one from the Doctor.

Oh, and AA -- the best tiki bar in Connecticut!
