Today we go into Max's South Seas Hideway's private ceramics studio to chat with their in-house sculptor, artist and ceramicist, Jerry Berta to learn about their kiln to table concept in which all tiki mugs, volcano bowls, pupu platters and more are custom made in house for Max's South Seas Hideaway. Also joining us for this episode is our old friend Gecko from South Sea Arts of Hawaii for a historic event - the first pouring, molding and pressing of his Ward Warehouse tiki mugs, the first artist made house mug for Max's, the probable first proper tiki bar to ever exist in Grand Rapids, Michigan!

Today we chat with Mark Sellers and Martin Cate to learn all about Max's South Seas Hideaway. Max's is unlike any Tiki or Polynesian bar or restaurant that's opened in the last 5 decades. It harkens back to the days when a Polynesian bar or restaurant was a grand space, similar to the Polynesian palaces of yesteryear like the Kahiki, the Mai Kai or the Kona Kai. Hear about what it took to bring this venture to life and what the future holds for this spectacular space!

Today we chat with musical artist Hale! also known as singer, songwriter and guitarist, Peter Cruz. The last time I chatted with Peter was when he was lead guitarist for island reggae band, Tribal Theory. We recorded this episode on the release of his new solo debut single "Feel That" and sit down for a candid chat about his creative growth, how it has changed and fueled his musical career, and what's in store for the future of Hale Music.
Fun conversations with artists, musicians, entertainers, historians and more in the tiki, hawaiiana, island, surf, lowbrow and alternative cultures!
I am a Tiki, Hawaiiana and Craft Cocktail enthusiast, avid traveler and adventurer, and proprietor of the Desert Oasis Room located in Corona, California.
