Squirrel Hill tiki bar Hidden Harbor will unveil its long-awaited signature tiki mug, a limited edition creation from the legendary tiki artist "Crazy Al" Evans (read more about his work here). The artist himself will be at this event, and you can expect some sort of drama, as the bar teases: "Will he be parachuting in from a helicopter? Will he be wearing a shirt? You'll just have to come to find out." Mugs will be available for purchase for $125 each (a more affordable version of mug will be available online; stay tuned to the bar for details).
