Martin & Rebecca Cate from Smuggler's Cove will present "Exotic Cocktails and the Cult of the Tiki Bar" @ Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall in Washington, DC Thursday, August 24th. $55 for members/$65 for non-members (price includes "tasting"--whatever that means). Program time is 6:45 p.m., which should give attendees plenty of time to continue the fun afterwards @ Tiki Thirstday in Bethesda. Get your tix quick--sure to sell out. PM me if you want help.

Around the corner...

Just a few more miles, you can do it!

Without a car, it feels a bit farther. Especially when training doesn't finish till after 5:00

New Hampshire people walk that far to visit the outhouse. I've seen their fitbit charts, it's the only explanation.

Can't you sign out a Crown Vic P71 from the motor pool? It would be a 30 minute drive.

Clearly you aren't familiar with D.C. traffic. I'd probably be better off driving straight from Fresno.

Aren't you authorized to use the lights and siren? Can't RJR sign your qual?

Only in role play.

Maybe these New England heroes should send a Paul Revere down to get me.

I'd consider driving out there to get you. Can you fly back Friday from Pax River or Andrews?

I'd say jet pack. But, I bet that section of the motor pool is tighter on using those to go bar hopping than the FOM Test Labs is with their portable memory wiping devices at holiday parties.

I'd also say we all remember what happened there. But, we don't.

Thank you. I had no idea the Smithsonian had tiki glasses in the collection. I actually met an archivist that works for the Smithsonian this weekend! She's a tikiphile.

it blows my mind to know that the Smithsonian once had 2 moai just sitting outside the entrance in the elements.

Kahiki Inspiration, perhaps?
