And the Mai Tai war goes on…..come and listen to what Beachbum Berry, Steve Remsberg and Ian Burrel (UJ Rum Ambassador) has to say about this matter while shakin`up different samples of Mai Tai recipes for us….oh YUM!

We will also see vintage slide-show images and new information learned after the publication of Jeff’s most recent book, Beachbum Berry Remixed.

  1. It was an enlightening and entertaining symposium. Basically, Berry refreshed the theory that the title of King of the Mai Tai belongs to “Trader” Vic Bergeron, although he may have been influenced by Donn’s Q.B. Cooler. Samples of each were heartily consumed by the sold out audience, all while Berry used an antique harpoon as a pointer for his slide show. Great fun.

  2. Maybe next time you can plan a family holiday with the Tales as a side activity for the grown-ups? bring along a babysitter..

  3. Some great sessions for you guys lucky enough to make the trip. I’d love to join you all there but I have a feeling if I left my wife with the kids for the week she would have the locks changed on the doors by the time I got back!
