But the downtown(ish) drinkery is stepping it up and offering a bona fide piece of art for a buck less than a Benjamin.
Iconic tiki carver Leroy Schmaltz has created a limited series of signed/numbered mugs ($99), dubbed the “Lucky Leroy”, to celebrate FTR’s fourth anniversary. Based in Whittier, CA, Schmaltz is generally acknowledged as the godfather of tiki carving, and is credited with keeping this Polynesian/pirate art form as a true slice of Americana.
Meet Mr. Schmaltz, grab a Bearded Clam ($9), a Thurston Howl ($9), or a Mai Tai ($9), and help owner P Moss celebrate their birthday on December 1st. Bring your own grass skirt.
