Wow wow wow!! That's crazy! What a fun story to be able to tell. This night looks like an absolute blast, I'm extremely regretful that I won't be able to make it. Hmmmm... perhaps if I put on a dog costume I could fly crate class? Have a great time, you lucky souls who can be there!

As Cheekytiki knows, I won't be able to make it, which is a complete bummer. It looks like a really great night out, with a fine line-up of talent and lashes of rum. At first 50 ($90)
seems a lot of money for a night out, but when you remember how much Vic's charges for food and drink, throw in a mug, and consider all the entertainment on offer, you realise it's a bargain.

Well done to Cheeky for having the brass balls to organise a Tiki event of this size and scope in the UK. The size of the Tiki contingent over here is extremely tricky to gauge, so it's a real step into the unknown. Previous Tiki events have been low-key affairs where no money has been risked, so this kind of event takes things a whole lot further.

Good luck to Cheeky & hope everyone has a great time!

All I can say is I hope this a smashing success, and hope that you can do it again next year, would be fantastic to be a able to plan for it with more notice. Be proud that you have the looks for just a amazing event. By the by, is the only way to purchase a mug by buying a ticket? Mahalo!

Wow...

The Legend and I were at Trader Vic's this weekend, and that's when we found out about the Luau! I'm not sure I can afford Trader Vic's twice in one week!The mug looks so cool as well! awwww! We asked the manager about it and there were 50 tickets left on Sat night...so don't worry if you haven't got your ticket yet (tho it'll most probably sell out soon!)

I so wish that I found out about it before!

Hope you all have a great time tho, would've been good to haev met a few more faces off the board!

Hey Pickle,
Shame you both can't make it, I did try to contact you by PM.
Hopefully if all goes well we will do it again next year and try to give more notice beforehand.
Thanks Woody, shame you can't come either.
As for the mug, they are only available if you go to the event, sorry.

If anyone's in London for the London Luau on Saturday, and you wanna buy some booze, check out Gerry's at the end of Old Compton street. They have a vast amount of spirits and those hard to find cocktail ingredients. Cash only though.
I'll be popping in to pick up some more rum and orgeat.

I've just woken up after what can only be described as a complete sucess.
We had fantastic shows from all of the acts involved, the fisherman even played Warren Zevons, Werewolves of London.
Cyril Lefebvre is the Best and Kevin Ancell even joined in on uke.
The Tahitians, Terii Nui, were as always brilliant. If you guys in the States don't get them over to play you are misssing out big time.The guys are great and the girls are soooooo beautiful and talented
We auctioned off the bottle of Wray and Nephew 17 yr old, and someone walked away with it for only 100, apparently on the open market this was worth up to 3000, the other small bottle we were given WE DRANK but everyone had a taste. And for all yo doubting Thomases, Joy Spence is going to send a letter of authenticity to us, the winner and on i will post it on here.
Trader Vics did a fantastic job too, next year they want to do something bigger, and also maybe take it to some of their other places in Europe.
Thanks again to everyone for coming and we will see you again next year, now I just have to find the rest of the Fisherman ( I only seem to have one)to take them on a tour of London.

We are just waiting for ours to be developed, we didn't have a digital camera with us.
Anyway, we have given most of the fisherman back to you, Brian is still here with his wife but leaving tomorrow.
thanks again to all who came, it was a really posotive experience.
Photos to come from us at the end of the week, we have Barry McGees exhibition on Thurs to finish the film, then I will post them.

Fantastic time cheeky, really enjoyed it. Great to catch up with everyone, food was excellent, the drink was flowing (bad hangover the next day), the music and dancers were amazing, the fisherman - wow - superb - the cover of Nellys Hot in Here was really cool. Well done to everyone involved, cheers Cheeky, heres to the next one!
