Yeah, I gave Mr. Smiley a ride home, since we both live in the East Bay, and that commute home was not Zazz. The freeway onramp was in plain sight, about 2 to 3 blocks ahead of us, on Bryant. We had a chance to cut down an alley and shoot down 4th Street and get on 101 to go over the San Mateo bridge.

But Bruce and I both said, "Naw, that would be much longer, let's just get on the on-ramp two blocks in front of us." Well, they closed off that onramp before we could get there, and diverted all of the traffic around to the 1st Street onramp instead. Take my word, going down the peninsula and crossing over the San Mateo Bridge will save you at least an hour, if not more. We definitely regretted not doing that as we listened to Bruce's newly autographed Jean Jacques Perrey CD for the 25th time.

Wow! what a great show! Otto did a fine job of curating this one, and the artists work is amazing, YEAH!! We could only stay for a bit, the baby pineapple needed a good meal, but this years show was even better than last year, if that's possible. If you are in SF in the next few weeks, you should really check it out. Our only regret is not having won the lotto so we could buy a bunch of stuff!

just getting back to things here at home.......
What a fantastic night of tiki! i missed the initial trader vic's sloshing, but got over there for a Martiki Mai Tai.... $5!!

why one of my favorite pieces barely had a tiki in it.....?

Hu&Han holding up the Munk Machine

"ya, Unga.... I did this all in a Week........."

the inspiration behind the birds....

in the hut....nice work

a bit o' work but by 4:30PM it was done



the art critics.....

"my head would look nicely shrunken up in there..."

inspector Jab and Smiley

Heather, Isabel, and two hangers on....

the middle is Justin, the Gallery Owner, who i spent a week with... he's the greatest, but he may not want to see me for a while...

i could have never made it to the finish line with out this local long time SF Tiki/burningman artist, TIKI TOM... he just showed up and said what need to be done to get it done...... awesome!

Man, what a crazy night! Things got of to a riotous start when we arrived at Trader Martin's and got to revel in *that* whole development. Our progress to the art show was, uh, slowed. Very exciting. Once we did make it to the art show, it was jam-packed -- I never did get to properly explore the tikified alcoves (are those permanent installations? they look great in the pics!). It was really too crowded to properly enjoy the art, but hey, that's how openings work. We'll have to make a return visit to enjoy the show again. It was, however, a blast. Afterward, we got a bit to eat at Original Joe's, and then the siren call of the Hinky Dink's Fizzy brought us back again into Martin's clutches at Trader Vic's. Actually, by that time he was off, and got to relax with us for a while. A grand night on the town!

Here are my pictures:

And some selections:


Ahhh... tiki


Unga Bunga spotted these tiki door handles and grabbed this pic, I'll add them to the tiki door handles thread


He looks right at home, doesn't he?


Smiley makes me smiley


This is about as close as I got to the alcoves -- darn that Hinky Dink's Fizzy!


The Munktiki art offerings


Love this pair


FASENCO! Tonga in Cheeki makes an appearance


The ringmaster, Otto


Otto an' me (pic from my friend Laura)


Ahhh... more tiki


Tiki an' Smiley, in similar states of repose


Martiki off work


Okay, I've gotta say, I think jab looks dead sexy in this pic. I wish it was a little less blurry.


Patrick was kind enough to sneak us into the men's room, which has better decor than the ladies' room

Thanks Humu, but who wouldn't look sexy in front of all those bottles of booze? Perhaps it was also the steak glow from the Porterhouse I ate at Original Joe's.

I must say the Hinky Dink's Fizzy threw me for a loop as well. It must have been the champagne. Or the 2 mai tais, Tonga punch, sips from the Kava Bowl, shot of rum, shot of Fernet Branca and beer at the art show, or the manhattan I had at Joe's!

We stopped by Ewik's ( "aka" Eric Rider ) Studio on the way home and checked out his latest stuff.

If your in San Francisco do stop on by the Shooting Gallery and check it out . Tiki Tony's and Crazy Al's Installations must be seen in person for maximum effect. Also experience the THRILL of MUNKTIKI VENDING MACHINE !
