This momentous occasion should not be all about that damn mug! It deserves its own thread, please post all photos and Tiki Ti accolades HERE.

This tiny bar was an important place of germination for me and Jeff Berry and lots of other people before we really "knew" Tiki!
I feel very gratified that I was able to contribute to this important event by designing their first Tiki mug, thus having things come full circle for me.

Thank you for everyone who came, from the farthest reaches of O.C. and the Valley to even San Francisco and Sacramento. See you again tomorrow same time, same place. And Thank You, everyone, for the kind words about the mug, too.

I'm glad someone got a snapshot of this guy...



In the 1930's when all of the Tropical cocktail classics were being invented, he was considered "The Man behind the Man" (or in those days one of "the boys").

He may have actually have been THE MAN !!

Thank you Ray Buhen !!!

And to Mike Sr., Mike Jr., and Mark for keeping the Tiki torch burning since 1961.

Quite a shock to see Dr. Shocker drinking in broad daylight. I miss SoCal!

Brilliant photos as always, Tom! I only wish we could've stayed longer. What an honor it was to be there to help kick off the anniversary. I'm raisin' my mug to toast another 50 years...see you in 2061!

no I didn't really drink all of those drinks,
I only had 2,
but I didn't do the Ray's mistakes,
I had a Zombie,and a 151 swizzle, and they kicked my ass.
going back for round 2 today.



Good times,
Good Drinks,
and Good People,
here is to many more Years for the Tiki Ti and the Buhen family.

Jeff(btd)

Had a wonderful time at the Ti yesterday.

It was everything our tiki thing should be, IMO .....Celebrating one of the last remaining icons of Polynesian Pop - The Buhen legacy.

Everyone was in a great mood, enjoying the cocktails, and getting their hands on that great mug....a long overdue thing for the Tiki Ti.

Great job on the mug design, Sven...another home run.

Congrats to the Buhen's for 50 years and 3 generations of greatness.

Forgot to post this pic of my wife's raffle winnings during Wednesday's festivities....



Now I just need to get a car worthy of one of these frames (yes, she said she'd share).
