Happy Instagramiversary to Me Two years ago on December 4, 2017, I relaunched The Search for the Ultimate Mai Tai here on Instagram. The goal was to share my experiences, highlight things going on in the community, and connect with others, This is the 911th post, which averages around 1.25 posts daily (lots of extra posts when I was traveling, mostly). I set a goal to post something daily and have done so with very few exceptions. Hopefully most of them have added value to the community as well. Big thank you to Mrs. Mai Tai @juliebeane for coming along for most of the travels, for being a good sport, and indulging the hobby. I visited 34 tiki bars in 2018, and incredibly I blew past that number this year. 51… and counting. And I have enjoyed most of those tiki bars, too. And have met some incredible people. Thanks to everyone. And thanks to you out in Instagram for following and commenting. To celebrate, I’m finishing the Kon-Tiki Expedition rum list tonight at @thekontikioakland in downtown Oakland. What a great place to kick off year number three, in the city where the Mai Tai was invented by Trader Vic 75 years ago, and where they make a killer Mai Tai today. Just love that bar, the staff, the food, the drinks, the music, and of course the rum. My final rum is Plantation OFTD. You might think you know what O-F-T-D means. Today it means “Oh Finally, That’s Done!" #tiki #tikibar #tikidrinks #cocktails #craftcocktails #rum #rhum #maitai #oakland @plantation.rum
