Time to dust this thread off again!

Ok, Waitiki is playing the 23rd at the Milky Way (1 week from today!!) Cd release party. I am soooo there. Anyone else up for it? Show is at 9, maybe some kowloon dinner beforehand?

Lemme know if you're in.

Pappy was gonna do recon on the Tiki Hut.

Any word on that pappy? Worth a night out for the fine folks in the NE TC?



Good news and bad news:
A) The Tiki Hut in Leominster is closed and the storefront is empty.
B) But it was a dart room, pool room, live band venue, "knucklehead" bar anyway.

Interestingly, you can device for yourself whether A or B was the good news or bad news!






Funny thing about that spot in Leominster where "Tiki Hut" is/was is that it had been a real Tiki bar back in the day. My grandparents lived in Leominster when I was a kid (70s/80s) and I am 95% sure it was an Aku Aku, it might have been another name but was Tiki for sure. If I recall correctly there were Moais out front but I may be confusing it with my memories of the Moai at Aku Aku (RIP) in Cambridge. I am 100% sure my fascination with it back then infulenced my adult Tikiphilia. It definitely has not been Tiki since the 90's, so sad it fell so far.

I ran into the Kappy's in Leominster the other day, and noticed a large Chinese restaurant at the back of the parking lot. I don't remember the name though, but it looked old and the outside had that look that implied it might have been Tiki. Alas, I didn't have time to run in (though I did grab a bottle of Zacapa 23 at Kappy's).

Is this the same place that you guys are talking about?

That Chinese place is the Singapore, it is not Tiki but it has first rate Chinese
decor - lots of beautiful lacquered woodwork and etched glass - and really good food, as for drinks the old guys used to make pretty good ones but last time I got one it was mediocre.

That Krappy's Liqour has been carring lots of the Trader Vic stuff lately, they were pushing the Kona Coffee liquer last time I was in there. Check out this gift
pack from Xmas I found there.

From the looks of the last few messages it looks like a trip to Leominster is in order. At least for a stop at Kappy's to help restock the bar.

Bargoyle - I'll be at the WAITIKI show next Weds. See ya there man!!!

Anyone else want to hit WAITIKI on 5/23/07?

Pappy's on board too. We may be heading in together, do a kowloony diner or something.

I know you've got dinner plans already johnman, but if anyone wants to meet up from some grog & grub on wed (even if you're not gonna do the waitiki show) let me know.

AloooooooooHA!

I feel ya Scottes. I took Thursday off. Priorities.

No shows in Mass until the Tiki Tour.

There's Block Island on June 12th (love the Block...nothing like cocktails on the ferry at 9 am!!) but thats a Tuesday....perhaps another day off is in order?

Sorry, nothing on the booksbetween the Hukilau/Block Island week and the CD release. Actually, other than a couple of private parties and the Bus Tour, there really is very little on the books for the rest of the year. We have been kicking around the possiblity of another webcast gig.

Once we get through this next month or so, we will be contemplating our next moves. Stay tuned!

Great Show!!!

CD is Fantastic! I also listened twice.

Pictures to follow (if they're not too blurry)

Bargoyle, YOU are hilarious! You need to tow an Airstream for nights like this.
