Aloha.

I met with Allan the other day.

Sam's is on it's road to recovery.

They're doing what they can to get the doors open so,

don't get all snippy if there is slight change.

MAhalos

Bamboo Ben.

The world outside of TC needs to know. How about posting updates on the official webpage?

Shootz! If Ben is there, then we have no worries! For those worried about updating, I'd have no fears. Ben does top notch work! If the place is getting cleaned up, and the new owner(s) are willing to put some dough into a bit of refurb, then kudos to them.
Can't wait to get back to Sam's and get me a scorpion!

Part of me wishes I never left the OC. The other part steps in it.

Mahalos all around to the ohana who are keeping us in the loop. Sam's was closed the day we stopped by when I was out for New Years last year and I was afeared that an opportunity was forever lost. Now it looks like all is well with the World. Good luck to the folks re-opening this OC gem.

Interesting question. Is a de-tikified, or reduced tikified, Sam's which is open better the incredible classic tiki bar mecca, complete with thatch, that Sam's used to be when open?

Is a new watered-down version a ongoing humiliation to the memory, or is any tiki, in whatever state (although if Bamboo Ben is involved it probably will be good), better than no tiki at all?

Dr. TikiMojo,
I am both insulted and offended by your ridiculous photo. What gives you the right to mock Polynesian culture by mimicking the traditional Maori Ta Moko tatau? Your photo is pure buffoonery and in bad taste!!! It borders on dressing up in "Black Face"!!!

Get educated!!!

Is that what that is supposed to be?
I thought it was a leprechaun/Celtic marking of some sort.
Guess the hat threw me.

Hey what do I know?

Except uke chords.
Those I know.

Dear Dr. Tikimojo,
I too, am greatly insulted and offended by your photo. You see, I am 1/235 Cherokee Indian. As far as the tatau issue goes, as a Native American I could care less. However, what offends me is the fact that you used the medium of photography. You see, I saw on an old movie that redskins think that when you take a picture, you are actually stealing the soul from the person being photographed. Therefore, what gives you the right to steal the soul of the person in the photograph? This is as bad as doing the tomahawk chop at an atlanta braves game.

Watch more TV!!!!

I'm also a Spanish moor, so watch out or I will rape and pillage your culture...

Oh, too late!

Just curious: I thought Dr.TikiMojo's pic was of Eric Idle from an old Monty Python skit. Am I correct?

The hat reminds me of those the Beefeaters wear at the Tower of London.

Come to think of it, Bamboo Ben's picture is a little disturbing.
I want to swab the decks and shiver some timbers every time I see it.

tj, I don't think that's Eric Idle.

Buzzy you're way-out.
I'm highly aware of the PolyPop and tiki revival. Hell, I'm a big supporter!!!
But, the question that I ask myself is "Where and when do I draw the line?"

I strongly take offense to the images that perpetuate negative stereotypes. That photo is ridiculous (regardless of who it is). If you’re someone who believes that it's okay to show images of “drunken Indians”,“lazy Mexicans” or "savage Polynesians" then perhaps you should evaluate your own insecurities and short-commings.

Once you’re done justifying your ignorance by your blatant disrespect for other cultures, perhaps you'd be interested in the truth.

I'd like to invite you, and anyone else, to an educational Polynesian event.
PM If you’re interested.

MT Out!
