40 Tiki-Ti (the Sequel)

A few months ago we released a podcast with Mike Sr & Jr of the legendary Tiki-Ti in Hollywood, California. It was founded by their patriarch, Ray Buhen, one of the original bartenders at Don the Beachcomber, the bar that started tropical craft cocktail mixology and kicked off a decades long era of Polynesian Pop.

I got so much positive feedback from the episode and many requests to do a sequel. Listeners simply wanted more stories about Ray Buhen and the old days of Tiki, so we sat down to record a sequel and in this episode we bring that sequel to you. Mike Sr shares more stories of Ray, the other bars he bartended at and the celebrities they've catered to over the years, including Howard Hughes, Clark Gable, Jack Palance, George Lucas and more!
