Today we host our first ever food challenge inside the Desert Oasis Room! As fans of spicy foods and the show Hot Ones by First We Feast, we thought it would be fun to try a hot wings challenge of our own and so we threw out the challenge on our social media pages and welcomed a group of brave souls to run the gauntlet with us. Starting from a mild Frank's Red Hot at 2,000 scovilles to the insane Last Dab at over 2,000,000 scovilles, listen and hear what it was like as each wing went from, "mmmm that's good" to, "holy hell that's f*ckn' HOT" and learn who threw in the towel and who made it all the way through to the end!

113 Tonga Hut 60th Anniversary

In 1958 a little bar in North Hollywood opened on Victory Blvd named "Tonga Hut." Back then, a gallon of gas was a quarter, the average cost of a new house was $12,000, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president of the United States and The Beatles hadn't even formed yet. Since the Tonga Hut has been open, the Berlin Wall was raised (and demolished), Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, television went from black and white to color to high-definition digital, reggae was born, disco was born, hip-hop was born, new wave was born, grunge was born and the United States has had 11 different presidents. And all that time, the Tonga Hut had it's doors open, welcoming visitors from near and close, far and wide. On this episode we chat with drunken revelers, fans and supporters from the Tonga Hut's back lot as we fondly celebrate 60 years of Tonga Hut good-ness!
