Here is Nate our Staff member jumping on the cowbell - GO NATE
Tonight we at Tiki's Grill & Bar we are playing host to a group of 14
guest that have traveled across the country. Their goal was to visit
all 50 states. At each state they visited they would buy a flag and
add it to the table top display.
Tonight is there victory dinner for accomplishing their goal. We are
very excited they chose to dine with Tiki's.

With a procession going to Kumukahi
Dancing are the beautiful ones with Hi`iaka
And Kapo-Laka in the verdant grove
Moving ahead are the dancers toward me
And to the sacred presence of the divine
In the name of Hi`iaka-in-the-bosom-of Pele
Source: This is a formal entrance/exit dance used for kahiko. It
honors Hi`iaka the youngest and favorite sister of Pele, and the major
patron of hula. Hi`iaka learned the hula from her friend Hopoe on the
big island of Hawai`i. Kapo-Laka are the god/goddess of hula. Kumukahi
(first beginning) is the easternmost cape in Hawai'i. The `iwa bird
(frigate bird) is symbolic of a lover, dancer or handsome person.

SAMURAI SLINGER with BACARDI DRAGON BERRYNEW HAPPY HOUR 2-5pm $1 Shot Special at Tiki's Grill & Bar • 1 ½ part BACARDI DRAGON BERRY Flavored Rum
• ¾ part lemon juice
• ½ part simple syrup
• Shake all ingredients with ice.
Strain into a SINGLE shot drink glass.BACARDI Dragon Berry brings together the classic taste of strawberry and enhances it with the exciting and dynamic flavor of the exotic dragon fruit.
The pitaya or dragon fruit is a fairly easy to grow tropical to subtropical fruit in the cactus family, native to South and Central America. It needs to climb on a trellis, rocks or a large tree. Its three sided stem has rows of clusters of stubby spines on the stem ridges. The flowers are very large, white, aromatic and last only one day (Fig. 1). Although it is not of large commercial importance, it is fairly common throughout the world's tropics. It is well adapted to wet climates as long as its soil has good drainage.
There are at least 20 named varieties. One of the most common is the Costa Rican Pitaya. The fruit is dark purple both outside and inside. It is mildly sweet with an indistinct flavor. This is in the genus Hylocereus, as are most the commercial varieties. (Fig. 2) The flesh color varies greatly from dark purple to white to completely transparent.
These plants are not hard to start from seed but take an extra year or two to bearing that way. Some varieties must have genetically different plants present (started from seed) in order to set fruit.
