It's in Beachbum Berry's 'Taboo Table'



It is currently one of my favorite drinks from Jeff Berry's books. Guests like it, too.

Hey all -

Apologies for bumping an old thread...

But suppose Damon's was to do a bit of a graphic design refresh - logo, menus, website, etc.

What would you like to remain, and what should go?

Are you this Dave Stolte?

And are you working with Damon's on this project?

I'm that Dave Stolte (and this one http://homebarbasics.com and this one http://wexlerofcalifornia.com).

And yes, working with Damon's on a little design refresh. I'm super-sensitive to the history of the place, how important it is to the regulars there, and to Thor's fun artwork he's done over the years. The goal is to pull together a lot of mismatched visuals, give it a little upgrade, and call it a day.

Hopefully ditch the stuffed-animal monkeys if we can.

I'll swing by Damon's this week and take a final look and drop you whatever notes I can come up with. I don't work far from the joint and am a graphic designer although a zilch of an illustrator.

Cheers Keith!

I think it would be a dumb idea to charge ahead with this project and not include some thoughts from Tiki Central!

Somewhere someone is starting a "Save The Stuffed Animal Monkeys" web site...

I have Dave's bar book, and I share it with friends who are new to home bartending. It's a good no-bull book which gets down to business quickly without a lot of flowery underbrush and makes it much less scary for folks who are new to the sport.
