Recorded over lunch at a local diner, today we sit down for a chat with Johnnie Velour. Johnnie Velour is a mug maker and ceramicist who has a rather unconventional approach when it comes to tiki mug making. That is, he doesn't sculpt his mugs but rather, throws each one on a potters wheel making each piece a unique, one of a kind, piece of hand made art.

We talk about how this came to be, his bartending background as well as his father's bartending background who also helped usher in the early Tiki cocktail movement, having worked at many of the now famous Polynesian Pop Palaces of yesteryear including Don the Beachcomber, The Luau, The Seven Seas and The Tahitian!

On this episode we record live from the Tiki Wonderland holiday art show at the Tonga Hut in North Hollywood. If you've been there then you've probably seen a wall full of decorated name plaques next to a fountain fondly named, "The Drooling Bastard" and the names on this wall belong to a drinking club called, "The Loyal Order of Drooling Bastards." To become a member of this club you have to pass the challenge of drinking all 78 cocktails in Jeff Berry's, "The Grog Log" and do it within a 12 month time span. Do that, and you get inducted into this special group. Today we talk to about a dozen Drooling Bastards to hear their stories about their journey to bastardization!

Today we have a late night chat with Scott "Tikipop" Taylor and "Tiki Rob" Hawes. Well, it was more of a late night for me because of the time difference and on top of that, I was battling a cold, so I apologize for the gravelly voice! In any case, it was still fun chatting with these guys. If you don't already know, Scott and Rob are tiki mug makers from the Hawaiian Island of Maui. They tell us what it's like to live in Maui, how they found their way to the islands, how they got started making tiki mugs and more!
