FOODIE (AND DRINK) FRIDAY! Our Next Stop of the Lounge Tour!

Last week we posted our plans to hit the Outer Rim at the Contemporary Resort.  After this we will hop on the monorail we get right off at the Polynesian Village Resort and head to The Tambu Lounge and after that take a peek at the Tiki Terrace outside at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto.  This second part is all based on the weather though.  If it's really nice, we will stop there...........if it's chilly or rainy, we will stay indoors.

Trader Sam's Grog Grotto does not open until after 4pm, and we will probably be there before that time.

We really love Tambu Lounge though, and it holds a special place in our hearts as it was the first thing we did when we checked into the Polynesian when we stayed there in February of 2010.

I know I just really want a Lapu-Lapu, which is the Myers's Original Dark Rum and Tropical Fruit Juices served in a fresh Pineapple topped with Goslings 151 Rum.  If not that one, I think the Tropical Macaw with Coruba Coconut Rum, Melon Liqueur, Pineapple Juice, and Cranberry Juice will work!......... I also know we have several other stops to make before we are done with this lounge tour.  I have to pace myself.  If we get a bite to eat there I should be "good" to go!

           Those chairs next to the window in the corner by the bar was were we sat on our first visit!
 Such great atmosphere at this lounge!

Tropical Macaw is the center drink.  So pretty!
I think the drink to the right is the Island Sunset, but I am not positive. Photo

The Full menu at Tambu is posted below.  Snacking on some chicken wings sounds pretty good to me!

 Since Irma (the hurricane that is) just had her way with Miami.....this week, I thought I would share these photos of Miami from the cruise port before we took off on 10/31/14.

Hi again all!  As I stated last week, we will be talking about places that we are going for our Lounge Hopping Tour in February.

Today we will be featuring our stop after we leave Jock Lindsey's Hanger Bar that was featured last week.  We are planning on hopping a bus from Disney Springs and head over to The Contemporary Resort, and make our way to The Outer Rim Lounge.

I really love the Outer Rim and look forward to having a cocktail there again.  The last time we had drinks there was 2012 when we were early for our reservation at Chef Mickey's.  I had a very delicious Pina Colada!  I loved sitting by the windows as day turned to night, and how different the view is at that time of day.  I think it's a super nice lounge to relax in.
