Al Kocab

a.k.a. Albert J. Kocab

Al Kocab, who died in 1994 at the age of 64, is closely associated with the Mai-Kai.

Mai-Kai founder Bob Thornton was so impressed with Kocab's art and design work that he got him involved designing many projects.

Al illustrated Happy Talk, a humor magazine that the restaurant published semi-regularly. He also designed postcards, lamps for each of the dining rooms, dining chairs, annual souvenir calendars, the Shrunken Skull Shrunken Head Mug ("dangerous and deadly"), the Abelam Mask Mug for their Coffee Grog, and the Mai Kai Tangaroa decanter.
