A large Drooling Bastard statue sits in a fountain inside the Tonga Hut tiki bar, North Hollywood, CA. Plaques with the names of the members of the Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard surround the statue. To become a member of the Loyal Order, you must drink all seventy six cocktails in Beachbum Berry’s book “The Grog Log”.
This mug is a copy of the Tonga Hut Drooling Bastard statue. The mug was produced by John Mulder at Eekum Bookum for Tonga Hut North Hollywood’s 65th anniversary. The mug has a dark brown exterior and a red interior with the words “65 YEARS - 1958 - Tonga Hut” on the back of the mug.
Eekum Bookum made one hundred 65th Tonga Hut anniversary mugs and a portion of these mugs were produced as the “Bloody Bastard”, a dark yellow with a dark brown wipe exterior and splattered with red blood spots.
