Sometimes you just get one of those feelings. I didn't know why at ta time, but I had a feeling that I needed to be at Longmont's Blue Agave. I put on the blue rattlesnake skin pattern dress and drove to this restaurant not knowing what awaited.

I showed up and had nice bacon wrapped shrimp. While at the bar drawing, I bumped into the most successful restaurateur in Longmont. After shots of expensive blue tequila and spirited debate on tacos, the fellow California refugee invited me and others to a V.I.P. at his new tiki bar: Swaylo's.

I showed up with the tablet early. It was a good thing I did. The place was packed. By the end of the night they would have completed over 250 covers. While there, I drew the most classic of classic tiki drinks: the Piña Colada.
