Sam "The Tiki Texan" Gowdy

After his first introduction to tiki and craft cocktails in 2015,
Gowdy retired from a 29 year IT career to become a professional bartender, mixologist, tiki historian and blogger. He is currently practicing his craft at The Brown Water Cigar and Bourbon Bar in Brenham, Texas.

An entertaining and informative dive into the ever-persistent
question: "Is this blender/frozen drink tiki?" Come join The Tiki
Texan on this excursion into the history and technology that drove the
age of modern convenience, and almost killed the craft cocktail
industry in the process.


Goslings Dark’nStormy Spirited Seas
with Ambrose Gosling (Jeremy Bell)

Friday, June 28, 2024 at 3pm, Waikiki Supper Club, Tiki Resort

Ambrose Gosling from Bermuda will tell us the fascinating history of the Dark ‘nStormy - one of the only trademarked cocktails. He will regale us with Sea Shanties on his concertina, and sing tavern songs written by his drinking buddy, Ben Franklin.

Ambrose will treat us to his ‘Family Reserve Rum’. He may just show you his swizzle stick and grate a nutmeg or two.

Ambrose Gosling may have died in 1857, but his spirit lives on through the medium of Jeremy Bell, who has been working this sweet gig for over a decade. Liquor enthusiasts are often amused by Bell’s bibulous bio :

Started Edinburgh University Whisky Appreciation Society
Wrote whisky articles for Decanter Wine Magazine
Served as The Glenlivet Brand Ambassador for 20 years
Maître Sabre in the Confrerie du Sabre D’Or

Fascinated by all aspects of the 18th century, he has several art history books to his name (

Tiki Vee's Saturday Morning Sugar-Coated Cereal Spectacular 2: 
The Return of the Son of the Thing from Channel 12

Saturday, June 29, 2024 at 11 am, Waikiki Supper Club

Hey Hey Hey...
It’s Tiki Vee’s Saturday Morning Sugar-Coated Cereal Spectacular 2: 


This Ain't No Rerun!

Harken back to the glorious days of youth.
Wide-eyed, in Garanimals, hair all a’tussled.
Of polyester carpet, 8-tracks, and rabbit ears.
Of time spent criss cross applesauce,

basking in the glow of channel 9.
The boob tube will show us the way.
...tee hee...”boob”...
One banana, two banana, three banana, four.
Smurfs, He-Man, Muppet Babies and more.

A big bowl...a small spoon...a gap-toothed grin, smiling through a

mouth full of sugar-frosting.

Crunch, munch, repeat.

So come spend the morning with everyone’s favorite rascal, Tiki Vee.
Your guide to the magical world of green clovers, pink hearts, orange stars, and yellow moons. Enjoy your favorite cartoons, an all-you-can-eat cereal bar, plus the RETURN of CEREAL MILK PUNCH, now in fun new flavors!

A celebration of Saturday morning, breakfast cereals, and Cap'n Crunchified cocktails.


Mars, stars, the Milky Way
When we’re groovin’ I can say.
Pajamas encouraged.
Sense of wonder, mandatory.
Neat, sweet, a groovy song
You're invited, come along.
Hope to see you there.
And that’s one to grow on.
                                    -Tiki Vee.
