The Crissman Tiki Mug - First Edition - Green - by Eekum Bookum - for Le Fern

in 0 collections

From Rory Snyder:

"Come to Le Fern on Saturday, November 12th, for cocktails, food, live music and our latest mug release! Le Fern opens at 4 p.m. that day, and the release of our brand new mug, 'The Crissman', will start at 6 p.m. From 8 to 10 p.m., we'll welcome the Slack Key ‘Ohana band who will be the perfect musical accompaniment to our night. If you’re still lively after all this Hawaiiana hoopla, you can wander next door to The Reef after 10 p.m. (when they will reopen after a private party) for a tropical nightcap. All of this merriment is the perfect pre-party for Sunday’s big Alohana event! But you need more details, so here they are: 'The Crissman' mug is beautifully crafted by John Mulder and his Eekum Bookum Tiki mug manufacturing wonderland. Modeled off of the one of the Ed Crissman-carved Tikis inside of Le Fern (which was purchased during this year’s Oceanic Arts auction), this gorgeous green Tiki vessel is a limited edition run of only 100 mugs. Its name pays homage to legendary Oceanic Arts and Caliente Resort Tiki carver, Ed Crissman, whose fine carvings can still be seen on the grounds of the Caliente Tropics Resort. Le Fern opens at 4 p.m. and the mug will be released at 6 p.m. If you want to add this one to your Tiki mug collection, we suggest you arrive early, and enjoy some of Le Fern and Sancho’s fine food and drinks! The mug is $99, and only one “The Crissman” mug per person will be sold, so that as many of our guests as possible can acquire one."

*NOTE: A brown Second Edition was released on December 21st, 2022, also limited to 100 pieces.
