Our first giveaway competition here at the Tiki Lounge! 😎 The prize for this competition is a pack of six (6) very cool tiki swizzle sticks by Brian Rechenmacher, otherwise known a B-Rex!
Here is Brian's official description of these neat sticks...
Pick up my newest swizzle stick. It is 8.5" tall and has a break off point towards the bottom so that you can shorten it for Mai Tai glasses or Tiki Mugs AND also use the bottom Tiki as a fruit spear.
They'd look great either in your drinks 🧉 or displayed in your collection!
Woohoo, my new painting by El Gato Gomez arrived safe & sound in one piece! :cool:
I couldn't resist, the price was just too good to pass up. Even though I'm working from home during the great "Quarantiki" I have some extra time because I'm no longer commuting to the office so I'm working on cleaning up & reorganizing my home office area. This painting will be on the walls. 👍
You can check out El Gato's works at her eBay page linked below. She does a lot of retro-style painting & prints that really is great for anybody into MCM or 'space age' styling.
PS: The thread title is what El Gato listed the painting as.
