We lost both , the monterey park location is now a public storage place. Doies theDVD have good footage of the older park? One picture is mentioned for the book and some text, but thats it....

Correction: The Tiki Archeology interview with Danny and all the live footage were shot at the Lake Elsinore "Tikis", the second one, the one that never opened.

In the Book of Tiki, all the photos with dancers in it are of old postcards and brochures from the first "Tikis" in Monterey Park, all others of Tiki statues and remnants are from the SECOND in Lake Elsinore....simply because when I began my research, the first "Tikis" was long gone.

When the first one was around, no one went around photographing all the TIKIS...sheesh, what a WEIRD idea!

I'll take both, lead me to your book and DVD, come next paycheck, as in this friday!

drove by the paintball park. Front gate closed was old wood, already threw me ghosts of what was, what could have been...

maybe the world can use a tiki haunted house? never been done before

[EDIT] Bleah, the 8 ball store wont take my shopping wants! Do you have it on Ebay perhaps?

Errr....I was afraid that that might be the next question.
'Fraid you will have to wait a while for the DVD, since the last batch is all sold out, and I am currently marooned on the exotic shores of the Bavarian Alps. No rescue in sight until Christmas either.

But I owe two more copies from doing trade business at the Oasis, so once back, I will get cracking at making more.

And I am certain the remaining landscaping of the Tikis/paintball park would make good haunted house environs!

Oooh, stuck in Barvaria for Octoberfest? How terrible! I know you miss everyone here, and everyone here misses you, but there are worse times & places to be stuck in (February in Chicago leaps to mind, as does August in South Texas). Enjoy a nice beer, sing a song or two, laugh for a few minutes and we'll do the same. Let me know when you're doing it & I'll try to coordinate a visit to Karl Strauss' Brewery Gardens for the same time.

A while ago I was talking to a friend at work about carving tikis and she asked me if I had ever heard of the "the tiki's" in Monterey Park. She said that she, her husband and some friends decided to check it out one night. All she could remember from the experience was that there was TONS of mediocre food, and tikis everywhere. She said it was over the top of being way over the top - an experience that really stood out as one of a kind. I promply brought in my copy of the BOT and showed her the tiki's section and she was blown away that polynesian pop was this popular.

A few weeks later, she gave me this photocopy:



(damn shutterfly cropping this...is there somewhere else I can upload this so it doesn't cut off the edges?)

She told me that she had made a photocopy of the original paper add for the weekend that she went (she doesn't have the original clipping - I already asked) but she was surprised that she still had this.
