    I think this will be my first stop when I get off the plane in San Diego for Tiki Oasis.

    Ha! This was going to be a Day 2 stop for us (thinking about hitting False Idol and Cat Eye Club on Day 1). But maybe we should move this up...

    I had already thought about stopping by a liquor store when I got into town, because I would like to have some room booze for the weekend...this just kills two birds with one stone for me, lol! ;)

Trader Mort's serves as a sort of gateway to tiki-heavy Shelter Island, where you can also find Humphrey's Half Moon Inn

. This is a small liquor store, and the selection isn't fantastic, but its vintage feel makes it charming nonetheless. The upstairs wine area is easy to miss, but features a few more tiki artifacts.

It's a liquor store, with a fantastic tiki exterior.

There was a nice little tiki mug and swizzle stick section. They also had a few dvds for sale.

The rum selection has dropped to the same level as the average mom & pop liquor store. Or worse. We were there a month ago, and for the life of me, I can not see how they stay in business.

Simply put, there is very little reason to go in other than to say you've gone in.
