When Brian and I first started dating about nine years ago, our first venture out of Phoenix together was a day trip to Tucson. We both had Tuesday’s off at the time and drove down to visit his friend Brad, who has since become a good friend of mine too. We coined the day Tucson Tuesday and although MANY trips to Tucson have been made over the years, I think that was the only time we’ve ever been on a Tuesday :)
Yesterday we went down for the day to visit Brad and his fiance Misty. I finally got to meet Niner the cat (the pilot in me is in love with this name!), although Brad has kept me current via Twit pics.
After lunch we stopped in Kon Tiki for a drink. This is an original tiki bar from the mid-century tiki craze, having opened in 1963 and still packed with mostly original decor!
I was getting a kick out of the 2-page drink menu because it was full of vague descriptions like “this tropical blend will sneak up on you!” I finally settled on a pineapple concoction, if you follow me on Instagram you know pineapple cocktails have been my latest obsession.
The restaurant and bar industry is so fickle, I love finding a place that has survived through the decades. Think of the stories those walls could tell!This entry was posted in travel and tagged Arizona, Kon Tiki, road trip, travel, Tucson. ← don’t loan me a book… EVER. birds of a feather… →
