Day 197. Tiki Iniki Velvet Gorilla

Again I feature a mug from a Tiki bar I’ve never been to. But my friend Ben Spalding has. Tiki Iniki is the creation of legendary musician Todd Rundgren, who moved to the Hawai’ian island of Kauai and opened his own restaurant and bar there. My buddy Ben was kind enough to pick up this Tiki mug for me on his last trip to Kauai. This big beauty, the Velvet Gorilla, was commissioned by Tiki Iniki and designed by Derek Yaniger, one of my favorite artists here in the Tiki Lounge. It holds a whopping 26 ounces of liquid refreshment! Mahalo, Ben, for thinking of me in your travels.
