How were the cocktails??
the drinks were excellent! they had a "limited" menu which consisted of about 25(!) different cocktails last night, and all the ones we tried were great. We only had one drink that was made a little off, and it was becasue it was too strong, so really... nothing to compain about!!!! they said there is going to be alot more cocktails availiable in the future, so plenty to look forward too.
it was the best run, pre-opening party i have ever witnessed, very smooth...
oh yeah, the place looks awesome and has a great juke box too!

My beautiful wife Alexandria & I just got in from another long and fantastic night at Frankie's! I'm doin' real good at my new studies on "How To Be A Drunk-O"!
Anyhoo, here a bunch o' pictures for everyone to drool over...
One of Buzzy's Chairs next to Billy The Crud's Squid Attack Tiki
Looking at the bar past more of Buzzy's chairs.
Two sides of "The Booth" with & without flash so you can see all of Ben's exquisite work.
Some of Ben's Masterful ceiling work.
Bosko behind the bar, and one of Leroy's final custom tiki's. Notice that instead of holding a war club, Leroy's Maori is holding the Ace Of Clubs!
Oceanic Arts, Bosko and Ken Pleasant flank the bumper-pool cue rack and the best CD Jukebox in any bar anywhere!
This one's for you, LakeSurfer! The only way to tell which restroom is the Women's is that the mask on the Women's door has lipstick on, and the door-handle has boobies!
Crazy Al's Masterpiece with Bosko behind the bar again, Ken Pleasant on the far wall, Master Schmaltz's Red Maori, Buzzy's chairs and Billy's Squid Attack Tiki all backing him up.
My Wifie Alexandria LOVES Da Maori!
The last thing you see as you stagger out is this superb carving by the one & only Benzart!
Well, that's it for now. More to come after we go again tomorrow!

Anyone going who could pick me up one of the souvenir tiki jackpot necklace and some matchsticks? Is there a way to buy stuff from the place via the net?

Hello. I was lucky enough to be able to design one of the mugs and got to go to the invitation opening. The place is amazing and I'm proud to be a small part of it. Congratulations to everyone involved.
