Mahalo for your visits and kind feedback, Wendy, Marlene, Jesse and hang10tiki.

Yesterday afternoon, husband and wife Tiki aficionados TikiHardBop (George Jenkins) and TornadoTiki (Chris Kridler) visited the Blowfish Bar, to our absolute delight. They had just come from the nearby Flagler County Library at Palm Coast, where Chris had given a presentation on her storm chasing experiences and talked about her new book,
Funnel Vision.




After plying them with rum cocktails, they regaled us with their New Orleans adventures at Tales of the Cocktail. George recently posted web links on Tiki Central to news stories and video clips of the event reported by Chris on behalf of the The Times-Picayune.

Our rum cocktails were simplified Zombies prepared to the recipe on page 169 of Beachbum Berry’s Remixed, except we doubled the specified amount of the dark Jamaican rum. We used B.G. Reynolds’ Don’s Mix, Myers’s Original Dark Rum, Cruzan 151 Proof Aged Rum (no local availability of Lemon Hart 151), fresh limes and fresh mint sprigs. Our featured appetizer was Shrimp Avocado Salsa, served with tortilla chips. Our “happy factor” climbed right to the top of the meter after a few cocktails...




-Tom

We both had a really great time and are really looking forward to the next opportunity to visit the bar, hopefully without the tropical disturbance!

The local news posted the following article after TornadoTiki’s (Chris Kridler’s) presentation last weekend at the Palm Coast library...

Palm Coast Observer August 8, 2012




Tikification of the Blowfish Bar’s new head continues with the addition of “Tangaroa and the Sea” by zerostreet (Robert Jimenez)...








I expect that Nick Camara is grateful I didn’t submit an entry in response to the “Do you read your Tiki Magazine in interesting places” column...




Florida’s tropical weather season is in full swing right now. After a late afternoon thunderstorm yesterday, we were able enjoy our sundowners while gazing at a rainbow on the oceanfront deck outside the Blowfish Bar...

Hey Tom! Thanks for posting the pic, including the remodeling ones! Lots of fun to look at! And I gotta say that Shrimp Avocado Salad sounds awesome!

Fun to read about the awesome guests at your lounge. Storm chasing is certainly not for the average Joe...what an interesting career. The art looks great in the new bathroom.

Jon, please do add us to your next Florida tour. The bar is open on your arrival.

Robert and Marlene, appreciate your visits and comments.

The Blowfish Bar celebrates the arrival of two new mugs from the Land Down Under. These are the creations of Melbourne, Australia artist Robbie Toth (Swizzle). They are variations of his “General Ra Ra” line of mugs, named for a military character...






When I asked Robbie on how he came to name the mugs, he related the story...

Quote:

General Ra Ra is a drunken story. I was out with a friend at a bar, where I knew the bartender, and I ask him if they had any DEMERARA rum, and he said 'What? General Ra Ra', so naturally we all had a good laugh and that's where it comes from. If/when I make some more mugs they will have military names, the next one will be called Corporal Punishment because I like having shots of a particular OP rum and making friends have it without telling them.








It pains me to no end to report that Ben Charred/Chard, the Blowfish Bar yard Tiki carved by Ramay “Keylo” Lewis, has been heisted. Sadly, Ben, we only knew you for a short time. You always had that beautiful smile...




-Tom

That's unfortunate! Hope the thieves get theirs & that you guys recoup in tiki at least ten fold!

It's a huge drag about the stolen Tiki, but, as always, thanks for giving us a look at all the work that goes into your beautiful home.

I hope that tiki comes to life and bites the thieves in the butt. Great stuff, thanks for the peak into the further progress.

It is so sad that people steal. We have had so many parties/crawls at our home without ever an incident. It wasn't a real tiki collector that took it just an opportunist. So Sorry ): Wendy
