So, WHO is gonna be up at 7:00 am on a Sunday!? I don't know what demographic this air time is aimed at, except maybe church-goers, but it can't be the drinking Tiki crowd.

Though I do believe that their interest was fueled by the craft cocktail revival, probably the recent Smuggler's Cove accolades. So I recommended to consult my friend Jeff Berry, but the 4-5 minute segment had only enough budget for one trip, which was to L.A., to make use of the greatest variety of Tiki representations to be found in one area:

They covered the Tiki authority (moi), the classic old cocktail bar (Tiki Ti), a fine home bar (Alan Smart and Michael Uhlencott's Hale Kahiki), and the restaurant bearing the name of the founder (Don The Beachcomber's). I really pushed Oceanic Arts, too, but for their limited time slot it would have been too much material.

I have no idea how this will turn out. I tried to explain the reasons for my love for the subject, but might have ended up a little too intellectual. But they can cut around that, I know Art had lots to share, and Alan mixed them a Beachbum Berry drink, and the Buhen boys at the Ti were expertly slinging their bottles as usual.



Never had that much equipment in my house before! Well, one thing is for sure, I think I represented Sophista-Tiki's wonderful A-frame shirt well.

Kewl! We watch every week. Best part of Sunday. Out here in the East it is on at a less godforsaken time. Like 9-10:30 or something.

Very cool, mainstream media mixed with Sven, the Tiki Ti, and Don the Beachcombers. Will be travelling down south this weekend but will get the DVR set for this one. Thanks for the heads up.

(Nice shirt, need to get me on of those Sophista-Tiki originals).

Sven, Maybe they will give you a Tiki Show out of this. Who Knows Reality is what TV is about now! Congrats!

This is one of the best shows on TV. It was one of Tiki-Kate's favorite shows and they actually did a great piece on Tiki-Ti a year and a half ago. I'm looking forward to it.
