Over Fifty Years of Tiki Tradition – Tiki Ti – Los Angeles, CA

On February 12, 2014, in Los Angeles, Wine & Spirits, by satnightfoodies

Where Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards meet there is a tiny tiki bar straight out of time. Picture a long dark bar, tiki trinkets everywhere, many of which have been provided by their customers, blinking lights, a waterfall, bottles of booze and smoke-filled air. Turns out, if the establishment is owner-operated, customers can smoke. Now, why […]

Home of the Original Pina Colada – Caribe Hilton – San Juan, Puerto Rica

On February 5, 2014, in Caribbean, Travel, by satnightfoodies

Kim and I recently were able to visit the home of the Pina Colada in San Juan, Puerto Rico at the Oasis Bar of the amazing Caribe Hilton. Beautiful location, super friendly bartenders and great drinks. However be careful to ask for a handmade Pina Colada, as the normal ones we found out are from […]

Disneyland Knows Tiki – Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar, Disneyland Hotel – Anaheim, CA

On January 12, 2014, in Orange County, Wine & Spirits, by satnightfoodies

We’ve been on a real tiki bar kick as of late. We enjoy the nostalgia that they invoke and so we started to look up tiki bars to experience them wherever we travel. We were recently turned onto a new tiki bar by a friend’s Facebook check-in and were surprised to discover it was practically […]

Great Setting for Cocktails at Grand Central Terminal – The Campbell Apartment – New York, NY

On November 14, 2013, in New York City, Travel, by satnightfoodies

This is a very fun spot at the world famous Grand Central Terminal in New York City. This bar is a popular hangout for locals waiting to catch the train after work. If you get in early you can grab a seat but it’s standing room only after the 5 o’clock whistle. It’s a fun […]

The Original Tiki Drink Company – Don's Dagger Bar at Don the Beachcomber – Sunset Beach, CA

On October 13, 2013, in Orange County, Wine & Spirits, by satnightfoodies

Kim and I have been on a mad hunt discovering different bars across the U.S. We are working to get them posted when we have time so we can share what we’ve found with you. Most of the time the bars we seek specialize in craft and vintage cocktails. One throw back of the vintage […]

The Hawthorne in the Hotel Commonwealth – Boston, MA

On June 27, 2013, in Boston, Travel, by satnightfoodies

When we planned our New England foodie tour, we knew Boston would be our opportunity to not only have great food but explore great craft cocktails. We did a lot of research prior to the trip and The Hawthorne, located in the Hotel Commonwealth was one we kept coming across. I can tell you that […]

Finally a Neighborhood Bar in the OC – Wild Goose Tavern, Costa Mesa, CA

On November 9, 2012, in Orange County, Orange County, by Mrs SNFoodies

When I first got wind that a new bar was opening in Costa Mesa, I was not that interested. But then I heard that it would have good pub food, cocktails made with fresh ingredients, a pretty extensive whiskey collection as well as small-batch spirits, they had my attention! I anxiously awaited its opening day […]

A Little Luxury and the Feeling of Old Hawaiian Hospitality – Mai Tai Bar – Waikiki, HI

On October 12, 2012, in Hawaii, Travel, by satnightfoodies

On our recent trip to Oahu, we decided to go to some new places in addition to the usual stops we always go to. The hard part about that is we now have more places we want to go to when we come back. Pretty soon we will want to visit every place on the […]

A Not so Hidden Gem on the Central Coast – Justin Winery – Paso Robles, CA

On January 11, 2012, in Drink Recommendations, Paso Robles, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

I was first introduced to Justin Wines by a friend of mine. Every time she had a get together she would serve wines from Paso Robles, and so through her, I became quite a fan of Justin as well as other Paso wines. Jason and I kept telling ourselves that we needed to make a […]

Life is Too Short for Bad Alcohol – Library Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel – Los Angeles, CA

On November 30, 2011, in Drink Recommendations, TV Food, by satnightfoodies

Kim and I have a saying, “life is too short for bad alcohol”. You know what we mean if you’ve ever gone to a bar and they serve some concoction made with vodka that tastes like rubbing alcohol and a syrup made mostly of artificial flavorings and color. It is a bunch of wasted calories […]
