On today’s Happy Half Hour podcast, hosts Erin Chambers Smith, Troy Johnson, and producer Archana Ram discuss local dining news, like the opening (this week!) of Bo-Beau’s newest location in Hillcrest, the new Chinese spot Village North on Convoy, and Wrench & Rodent chef Davin Waite’s new menu items made with—wait for it— banana peels.
Today’s special guest is Tommy Baumann, general manager of Bali Hai. We chat with Tommy about the resurgence of tiki culture, working in a restaurant family, his favorite tipple on the menu besides the potent Mai Tai, and the upcoming Tiki Oasis event.
