Here's a link to the great Frankie's article in the "Daily Fiasco"

http://dailyfiasco.com/tag/frankies-tiki-room/

...and here are the accompanying "Private Grand Opening" photos that go with it:


The Two Kings Of This Castle; Moss & Ben


Moss & Ray looking pissed that someone all ready broke one of his tikis!


Da Boyz In Da Shack! Ben, Al, Moss, Ray, & Buzzy out front.


Just one of the many gorgeous views inside.


Our Pal Al...


Ben and Moss from a more sober moment of the evening.


Our Saviour...


The infamous "Bearded Clam" mug by local Tattoo Artist "Dirk Vermin". I heard a rumor that this one is gonna be changed and that these will be the first super-collectable mugs from Frankie's.


Squid's Slot Machine Tiki. Note the hand-painted metallic coins in the mouth. Now that's quality workmanship for ya!

Well, I'm off to Frankie's for Grand Opening Nite #3... Aloha!

And if you don't pay your tab, they sacrifice you to one of Buzzy's chairs!

Does anyone know if they have their own parking lot? Or where is a good place to park?
Thanks.

The opening of Frankie's Tiki Room was amazing last night! It was packed to the max and looked fabulous! Bamboo Ben did a great job! And Frankie's Tiki Mugs are to die for! The bartenders are the best in Vegas... No doubt about that!

Moss as always looked handsome!

I'm going back tonight to party with my Tiki friends!

<3

I was a lucky pup to be at Frankie's (for the press and artist's party on 12/2) and I have to say...Bamboo Ben and ALL the contributing artists have done an outstanding job on creating an atmospheric Vegas-influenced Tiki bar. I would definitely call this place "Tiki with and edge"! The jukebox is fantastic (always a plus in my book! Bad music = bad time) and Rumshaker (a wonderful girl!) has created some terrific drinks. Another bonus: the mugs. They are completely unique designs and Holden has done them proud! They are HEFTY and beautifully crafted! Truly collectable, folks! I am so happy to have a new place to hang out when I visit the "adult Disneyland" that is Las Vegas. Good times, good times... Thank you, Moss! (You were very gracious to this Tiki journalist.) Oh, and thank you to Bamboo Ben, Tiki Ray, Crazy Al and Mr. and Mrs. Smiley for showing this girl such a good time that night. Hope to see you all soon again! -- Kari Hendler (Tiki Magazine)
