Nice mug, but I don't know - there are funny puns and then there's outright crudeness.

2 oz pineapple juice
1 tsp lemon juice
3 oz
Clamato® The Original Tomato Clam Cocktail
Dash of TABASCO®

Shake all ingredients together, strain into an ice filled glass. Garnish with a pineapple spear and a celery stick.

from today's las vegas weekly:




What this town needs is more tiki

Word hit the Weekly Friday afternoon that Double Down Saloon owner P Moss has purchased and will be renovating the old Frankie’s bar at 1712 W. Charleston, next to UMC Hospital. The new joint is due to reopen (according to the handwritten sign on the door) as Frankie’s Tiki Room on December 4. Believed to have been built in 1942, the diminutive 1,300-square-foot watering hole currently features a long bar with at least 10 slots for video poker (staying), a tiny elevated stage with a brass stripper pole (going) and a glossy red-painted, low stucco ceiling (also going). Says Moss of the continuance of the legendary Frankie’s name and overall look, “Las Vegas architecture and buildings … everything gets blown up after 30 years. There’s no cultural history here. I would never think of taking something that has been around for 50 years, and that has meant a lot to so many people, and that is really a Las Vegas landmark and just destroy that.” The Double Down itself turns 16 next month!

Many legends of tiki culture and décor will have a hand in the design of Frankie’s Tiki Room, including Bamboo Ben, grandson of Eli Headley, who created the décor for the legendary Aku Aku at the Stardust. Plenty of real tikis have been commissioned for decoration and for functional seating. A menu of 15 original tiki drinks and five traditionals will come in eight newly-designed tiki mugs. “The place is going to be very authentic but with a hint of Vegas kitch,” says Moss. Frankie’s juke box of 100 CDs will have everything from “surf to exotica.” Open 24/7, the Double Down’s GM Chris Andrasfay is charged with overseeing both venues.

I like the font in the sign, I hope they're keeping the "Frankie's" and just adding the "Tiki Room" below it.
