Jason is the Boozy Doodler. A gifted tattooist. Black velvet painter. Menu graphic artist. Tiki cartoonist. Cocktail tinkerer. Prop master craftsman. Tiki bar glass designer. If it’s tiki, he’s doing it.
Jason and Casey invited me to stop by for a Jungle Bird at the TaBoozy Lei, their home bar located in New Braunfels, Texas. Once I stepped inside, I didn’t want to leave.
The bar has a vibe that’s classic. Jason and Casey’s creation has layers of collectibles, an A-frame thatch feature, beautiful large Tikis, and masks from local carvers. It also features Jason’s own creations of skulls, motion activated ships in bottles, and art; as well as Casey’s touches of leopard and zebra prints to the vintage lounge furniture and floor.
