One Mint Julep
It's hotter'n hell here in Chicago, and no sign of a letup. Too hot,really, to spend too much time in front of a computer. Having lived outside of the MidWest for a time, I had forgotten about this wonderful humidity thing. Y'know, when it's cold you can add more layers. But when it's hot, and yr lying naked in a bathtub filled with ice, that's about the best you can do.
What helps, though, is perhaps a nice Zombie. Maybe a Mai Tai. a Rum Runner, or a Beachcomber. Of course the classic Pina Colada and/or Daiquiri can't hurt either.
It's a Tiki world in the good ole summer, and to help you mix your favorite Rum drink and dance the sweltering nite away, I offer the swinging island surf sounds of The Tiki-Tones. My ice is melting. Time for a refill.

When its' hot out, Independent record stores have the coolest tunes.
