Hope everyone is okay and safe today.
Martin, you are the funniest guy I've ever known. Perfect Hoopty outfit and acting job.
We had a real Hoopty incident as well. Only in Modesto. I'll let someone else elaborate.
Thank you everyone for coming and thank you Scott and Colleen.

cleen and i just wanted to thank everyone for an incredible evening! we really had a great time and look forward to seeing everyone again real soon. may the hoopty spirit be with you all year long!

i want to extend very personal thanks to martin's central valley cousin who paid a visit to the dark marq. perhaps he can attend the whole evening next time!

and last but not least an apology to the jab, my booze brother, who went missing from the hooptylau for a while. i think the shock and confusion of the hoopty-van having the gas siphoned from it may have contributed but that is still no excuse on our end! publicly i say i am truly sorry for the mis-communication.



we were so busy driving and hosting that we did not take any pics. so if you have photos please post them here!


thanks again everyone!!!!!!

cleen and dh

Thanks so much to Vic and family and hat and collen for such a great time.

Martin i'm afraid that you may have to bring your cous Billy Ray Buffet with you from now on. I knew you were talented behind the bar but thanks for many heart laughs.

Tikihula - what can I say? Thanks for kicking down a great tiki--someone was hoping I wouldn't be able to fit it in my car.

I think a new program is in order. NO JAB LEFT BEHIND!!!

When we found out that the missing Jab got a room at the Townhouse we found out Where Would Jab Dream. Earlier at the bar we noticed What Would Jab Drink.

Here's a few pictures from the day:

THE HOOPTYLAU SONG

1948, 2005
Lyrics & Music: Jack Owens, Mr. Smiley




Oh, we're going to a hooptylau
A hoopty, hoopty, hoopty,hoopty , hooptylau
Ev'rybody loves a hooptylau
Where the "JERK" is the work of the bartender!

We'll throw our dollars right onto the bar,
but save some for later in case they've siphoned you car!
Oh, we're going to a hooptylau
A hoopty, hoopty, hoopty,hoopty , hooptylau
Ev'rybody loves a hooptylau
Where the "JERK" is the work of the bartender!

He was sitting at the bar wishing
The bus would pick him up
After an hour or so of swizzle swishing
The Jab figured he's out of luck!
Oh, The Jab was going to a hooptylau
A hoopty, hoopty, hoopty,hoopty , hooptylau
Ev'rybody loves a hooptylau
Where the "JERK" is the work of the bartender

I had a great time! It's always a party at the central valley.

I feel bad Jab got left behind. Who was his Hoopty Buddy? I guess not everyone was in Girl Scouts, where you get assigned a Buddy, and you always keep an eye on where your Buddy is, especially when boarding buses and siphoning gas...

Special mahaloz to drunken hat, cleen, jungle trader and tikihula for their amazing generosity.

Fo Shizzle that was some hooptyness like I ain't ever seen. Another big ZAZZ going out to the Drunken Hat and Tiki Cleen for all there effort puttin this together and drivin'. Also a big thanks to JT and his ohana for hosting and giving me a place to put my little monkey noggin at the nights end. Dr. Z good to see ya again and thanks for the no hangover pellet packs. Those things are awesome! Big RAZZ to the Jerkies who tried to run off with our gas. Glad to hear that The Jab was not a victim of a shanghai and now a part of the Mootown siphon crew, you had us worried man. It was also a real honor to meet Tiki Cleen and The Hats neighbor Cuzzin Clem. (Funny how his breath smelled of gasoline though.) It was great to see all of you again, I had a blast hangin' out, drinkin'and eating Chongolian Beef and Al-amari. One more big thanks to Tiklihula for all the awesome prizes and the DVD. Here are some of my pics, enjoy!

Good song, eh! we'll sing it next year I hope!!!

I think this is my favorite tiki event. I just love being at Minnie's with such an incredibly fun group of people--and Jungle Trader's amazing oasis and Tikicleen and The Drunken Hat's incredibly atmospheric home bar, the Dark Marq...even The Tiki looks better every time I see it, especially now that they're gradually putting up their old mask collection again!

There's something truly vintage about Hooptylau, too. Didn't anyone else have a moment there where it seemed entirely possible that thirty or forty years ago, a happy horde of Alohawear-clad partyers descended upon Minnie's en masse and tippled themselves silly? We are upholding a tradition here!

It was great to see Ookoo Lady and Krustiki and Dr. Z in their FAAABULOUSLY hoopty outfits--I love it when the wonderful SoCal ohana venture northwards to party!! And it is always fun to see folks experience Minnie's for the first time.

I'm gonna let the pics speak for themselves where Martiki's charismatic Central Valley cuz is concerned!!! I'm still laughing.

Scott, Colleen and Mike the Tiki Benefactor--your generosity is unparalleled. I owe you guys a billion drinks...hey, maybe at HUKILAU '06! if not waaay before.

As if all that tiki goodness weren't enough, we had a great breakfast at Turlock's Googie gem Latif's the next day...AND, I found three gorgeous Hawaiian dresses in Stockton on the way home! Dang!

But Dangergirl is right...next time, we each get assigned a "Hoopty Buddy"!!! good grief...sorry, Jab!

Here's a link to my Hooptylau Fotki album:

HOOPTY!

And here's some visual tidbits of delight:


Al and his lucre loose in Modesto!


"Hoopty, man, hoopty."


JT's oasis by moonlight


The REAL Minnie's crowd


"Whutchu sayin' ta me boy??"

hugs to all,

tikivixen

Perhaps it is still a mad pipe dream, but I fantasize about ENTIRELY taking over the Modesto Tropics and The Tiki at some mythical future date. I mean, hey. Problem tenants? Unpleasant clientele? The answer is simple: crowd them out! If we fill the entire damn hotel, who could conceivably bother us?!?

Heck, we'd probably SCARE everyone away. Yes, we are "THE TIKI CULT"!!!

Funny, Hanford kept telling me that to drink the Jerk, I had to first practice siphoning gasoline. You know, suck on the hose until the gasoline reaches you mouth and then stick the end into his car. I then had to follow it with a Jerk. 151 is a great chaser for 91 (octane).

What a blast- Rebecca and I had such a great time. Mucho mahalos to Hat, Cleen, Vic, Cheryl, and Mike for everything.I just wish I hadn't passed out when we got back to the Dark Marq, because it looked like a lot of fun. I hope my cousin wasn't too much of a pain in the ass. He can get a little rowdy at times. But he wanted me to tell everyone that he's available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.

Lots of excellent pictures will follow shortly.


Whenever you're watching a Jerk get made
You gotta be careful, they're siphoning away.
Don't keep your eyes on the jukebox
or the stuffed pig's head
Keep your eyes on The Jab
He's kinda sneaky
Just keep your eyes on The Jab!



Chongolian BEEEEEEF!!!!

Man, I love Hooptylau! What a great time, with some of our dearest friends. Many, many mahalos to the drunken hat & tiki cleen for making it all happen, and for being our sober chauffeurs for the evening. Mahalo also to Jungle Trader & his wife for opening their lovely home to us. Tiki Hula deserves some mighty mahalos for offering up many wonderful prizes, any one of them would have made a great grand prize, his generosity was truly amazing. Mahalo to the hoodlums of the Central Valley for providing the just the right Hoopty touch to the evening's festivities. It's the buddy system or bust from now on -- we were all a bit panicked when we realized that our dear jab was on the loose on the mean streets of Modesto, wearing naught but white pants and a wee beach robe, his chest hair exposed to lord knows what sort of abuse from the gas-fume-crazed Modesto natives. Minnie's was fab as always, though they could use a few more lightbulbs! I nearly burned the joint down in an effort to make enough candlelight to read our menus! Despite its strange allure to men whose taste I otherwise love & respect, the crazy curly hair is *not* going to become part of my regular repertoire of hairstyles -- my Modesto 'fro & jumpsuit is only for Hoopty, baby!
