Smuggler's Cove
In 1999, Rebecca Cate inadvertently fueled Martin Cate’s madness by famously uttering words (which she thought were a joke) about making a spare bedroom a home tiki bar. Since then, however, she too has been swept up in the tiki fantasia, first as an enthusiast, then helping Martin open and run Smuggler’s Cove. The opportunity to coauthor the book “Smuggler’s Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum, and the Cult of Tiki” allowed what had been just a weekend and vacation escape to turn into a full-time journey. Rebecca earned her PhD in personality and social psychology from The University of California at Berkeley in 2006, and spent over a decade leading large-scale studies of behavioral health interventions as well as topics related to retirement and longevity.
