I am excited to see everyone.

In addition to Helz drinks, I am going to test drive the Rottin' Zombie, so bring your favorite Zombie mug and bring something warm incase it gets cold later.

C ya Sunday.

Meant to post yesterday, but I forgot my password…
Enormous thank you to Fink and Mrs. Fink for another great time and their generous hospitality! It was also fun to see the posse and to share many laughs during the movie. It is one that I will be adding to my collection in the near future. Stayed tuned for some pics that Helz will post of the 2.5...

Thanks to the Finks for being such wonderful hosts and excellent zombies. Also thank you Helz for mixing up the Pain Killers. Joyce now thinks she is an alcoholic!

Gotta admit, it's nice to hear some enlightened Tiki perspective in a major newspaper.

Despite some of the colourful background on Boyd, this jackass Flomberg took aim at the only Tiki bar that we have had in Denver for years. I can understand the problem he had with the bar's namesake, but this so called journalist had a personal vendetta and what's worse, he elaborated on a situation and fabricated a story to meet his own selfish needs.

To further clarify my point, the bar was operated by parties other than Boyd Rice and Flomberg's shaky article on the place was unfair to everyone else involved. True, any press is good press and Flomberg probably helped business more than he hurt it, but I am sure that was not his intent.

For what it's worth, without Tiki Boyd's the Tiki scene that we have enjoyed in Denver may have been set back untold years, as it was a great meeting place.

Dave Flomberg is an arch enemy of Modern Drunkard Magazine, Tiki and in my opinion he is an enemy of local culture in general. Shit fire. Compare my critique to his. Maybe I should turn his ass in for plagerism. Moreover I am sure he didn't mind paying $14.00 bucks a drink as the paper picked up the tab.

That is my rant.

No offense Helz. Thanks for the pics and the article. I just get steamed at this guy.

Check out some of the banter over at Modern Drunkard on this.
It is old but very interesting.

T.F.

None taken at all. I didn't know any of the guy's backstory...I was just commenting that he seemed to at least know what Tiki is and is suppoed to be. But it sounds like he's a typical "About Town" writer...can't get after it himself, so he just "comments" on what other people are trying to do.

Matterhorn,

Sounds like a blast, but unfortunately, school nights are pretty rough for me. I definintely want to give it a run with everyone, but just can't get it done this week.

Also...

Just a little something I stumbled across at the ARC this weekend I thought you all might enjoy....



There's some cool info Zulu posted about this place out here.

Amazing find!

I am curious about your opinion Matterhorn. Hope you have fun. Thank god the drinks are half price. Geez, it's not the Mai Kai or nuthin'.

T.F.

Well Joyce and I hit the Shag bar last night. It was a slow night (only 9 patrons including myself and Joyce.) The bar looks pretty nice but has no soul and no passion. It looks like any number of other modern bars with exposed ceilings and an industrial look. The furniture is retro mid century modern pieces and there are exactly four tikis in the place- two small carved palm pieces at the entrance, a Moai chimnea serving as a planter on the smoking area and one mask on the wall. The best touch was the collection of fezzes and Tiki Farm mugs over the bar, although tough to see due to no spotlight or indirect lighting on the case. One of the walls is just painted with paint splatters which I guess was their attempt at being Modern. The most striking piece is in front of the bar is a solitary stripper pole. I did like the restroom and the doors with the male and female symbols.

I had two drinks the first was a Vicious Virgin which was pretty good but way too sweet with sprite and cherry flavored rum and I could hardly taste the rum. The second was I believe called the Bahia Bama and was a coconut based rum drink. Although slightly better, it did not have the shaved coconut as promised on the drink menu. Some other drinks included a take on the Mai Tai called the Shag Tai, a whole page of Martinis, a Hawaiian Planters punch, and a Sailors Grog. It appeared that the only thing the bartender does is pour the mix and add the rum. The full price cost of each drink served in a hurricane glass is $14 with larger size for 4 people priced at $35. I was glad it was half price night for the drinks.

The music was a mix featuring videos and included Reel Big Fish, U2 Sunday Bloody Sunday from Red Rocks, Bachman Turner Overdrive, the Fray, The Cure and more which were played off a video juke box. Definitely no exotica or even surf music on a supposedly tiki night. All in all it was kind of a disappointment and I do not think it will last long before it is changed into something else. If they wanted to do a true Shag bar, they should brighten the color palette on the walls and finish the ceiling and walls. And they definitely need to add some plants or trees or something more organic and living to take away the whole industrial feel to the shell of the building.

Hi all.
I will be in Denver on a press-check friday and saturday nights this week. Any ohana want to meet up somewhere and hoist a mug?
Contrarywise, is there any tiki scene event going on this weekend I could attend?
Otherwise I will just be wandering around seeing the sights (always better with company).

Drop me a line.

Thanks!
