The mug includes a wahine with prominent, exaggerated features; it's my understanding that it will be used for a signature drink - "The Bearded Clam".

Here's the mug - already on eBay:







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

Is this place going to be a Tiki Dive Bar, or a Tiki Biker Bar?

Naaaw, do I look THAT mean? I am not mean, more like troubled:



Troubled by the weight on my shoulders of having to perpetuate the Polynesian tradition of ancestor worship, retelling the tales of the forefathers, reminding the youngens to heed their traditions.

It is this scowl that many old Tikis display, warning the followers to remember the tradition. Well, it is possible that I am turning into a Tiki in the process of being the guardian of the tradition:



..and earlier:



(...and Ben, this is on no way to imply that YOUR work is not a living, breathing, beautiful example of your forefathers' tradition!)

1943 is pre-Tiki style, I don't care about that. And last time I checked it was 2008. And because we all LOVE the well thought out, inspired architecture and design of today, we congregate here, to UPDATE all the ugliness of the past, right?

Don't try to pigeon-hole me into that backwards corner, Ben, my bottom line is if it is done right and with an understanding of the style, a modern Tiki Bar CAN be great. And from all I can tell so far, this new Vegas place looks like it got it right...probably in part due to your help.

That mug thing is a question of how far everyone's individual definitions of good/bad taste reach. I think it's a funny concept. After me and Otto met Florian Gabriel he was inspired to draw a similarly racy mug design for Otto. The difference is that that one never saw the light of day, some would say that was for the better, some not.
