100 Martin Cate
Today we release our 100th episode and chat with Martin Cate! To listen, click here:
In October of 2016, we launched this podcast from Inside the Desert Oasis Room, hence the name. For those that don't know, this podcast was started as a fluke. I actually had a different type of project in mind and when the first episode hit a couple of snafus, I temporarily launched it as a podcast and never looked back. Since that initial launch, we've released a new episode every week without fail and fast forward to today, we now bring to you episode number 100. I honestly, never expected to still be podcasting 2 years later! I never envisioned sponsorship, merch, mugs, event appearances and room parties or even doing this full-time as a profession but here we are today! None of this would be possible without our sponsors, guests and patrons of the show. So for that I offer my humblest gratitude to all of you. THANK YOU!
And because of the unexpected origin of this show, I thought it would be fitting to have the esteemed Martin Cate, tiki and cocktail authority, be our guest on this milestone of an episode. Why? Because when I met Martin almost 20 years ago, he was a sales rep for a logistics company. Never did he ever think he would not only open a bar but end up owning, co-owning and running 5 of the world's premiere tiki bars including Smuggler's Cove, False Idol, Hale Pele, Lost Lake and Whitechapel. We recorded this episode from my suite balcony at this year's Tiki Oasis where we won Best Decor and Best Suite Party in conjunction with our sponsors Tanduay Rum, Tonga Hut, Bahooka Underground and John-O.
