Book Description

28 Jan 2002
Cocktails and Appetizers to Seduce and Entertain; In Shag Party, Adam Rocke and Shag, tiki culture's most acclaimed artist, have devised eight soirees, accompanying each with drink recipes and simple 1950s-era appetizers guaranteed to transform any lounge or bachelor pad into retro heaven. Each Shag-illustrated party revives the sophistication of postwar pop culture. Themes include Tiki Luau, Halloween Party, Bongo Beat, New Year's Bash, South of the Border Samba, Las Vegas Night, Seduction for Two, and Night Club Night. Fans of the Mai Tai, Side Car, or Manhattan will find it hard to resist this pop art collector's item.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not what I expected 12 Feb 2002
By Peter J Molnar - Published on Amazon.com
I have been waiting for this book for several months, and was a little disappointed when I finally got it. It features 8 party ideas, such as Bongo Beat Bash and Island Luau. Each of these sections features several interesting cocktail and appetizer recepies, as well as related Shag artwork. All of this is OK but more than a bit sketchy. Except for a bare-bones introduction at the front of the book, there is nothing from the writer on how to throw these parties; even some basic fashion, decorating or organizational suggestions would have been good. I can plan a tiki party with the best of them, but it's still nice to consider other ideas.
Not bad overall, but also not a shining example of retro chic either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shag art and awesome appetizers! 30 May 2002
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
If you love Shag's art like I do you may buy this book just for that. Let me tell you there is so much more. I had a party this weekend and made three appetizers from this book and there were no leftovers! Jalapeno poppers made with corn flakes!!! CRAZY! If you are adventurous and love to make your guests happy this is a great book to get! Also get Shag's Tiki drinks...the Horny Monkey is a crowd pleaser as well!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Mish-mash of frivolity 6 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Despite a couple of good recipes to add to my files, this book is useless. Get the recipes off of the 'net and save your cash for barware. Add this book to the ever-growing pile of uninspired eyecandy issued forth from the Shagmart.

5.0 out of 5 stars dig this funky art 27 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I love Shag's bold style and bright colors. This is a great book to just toss on a coffee table. All my friends pick it up just to flip through the art. It's a real eye catcher and conversation starter. I bought his last book, Tiki Drinks, too, and both make a nice little collection to have on display.
