Pre-order copies were mailed out last Thursday; they should be arriving soon (if not already -- sent Media Mail -- kinda slow).

I'll have 135 copies with me at Hukilau this weekend.
The official book signing is at about 4:15-ish on Friday at the Yankee Clipper, right after my 3:30 seminar. It'll wrap up about 6:30.

mahalo






James could you put on some lipstick and kiss my copy.

Scored a copy of the book last weekend in Chicago straight from JT at no less than the Hala Kahiki. What a detailed book - so much more in there than the first volume! I have only browsed through it so far and barely scratched the surface.

Some unfortunate news - looks like I won't be at Oasis this year, after all.

I really wanted to do some book launch events on the west coast, but it looks like that won't be happening.

Midwest events are still in the cards.
Stay tuned.

So... anyone west of the Mississippi River who wants to buy a copy from me directly is encouraged to do so at:

Tiki Road Trip in Columbus for HOT ROD HULA HOP


Hi everyone!

The Tiki Road Trip caravan will be rolling through Columbus this weekend, so that James can hook you all up with copies of Tiki Road Trip 2 during the Hot Rod Hula Hop 3 event.

HRHH a third-annual Tiki fanatic gathering (which also incorporates a vintage car show) presented by the Fraternal Order of Moai (FOM).

More info on the event is here -

http://www.hotrodhulahop.com

I'll be there all weekend; book signing will be Saturday afternoon on the same premises as the car show. Zooooom.

For you Clevelanders, I'll be up in the land of the burning river visiting some family on Monday through Weds, and will check out the new (not Tiki but still exotica - or so I am told) Vhooda restaurant in Parma. Tikiphiles are invited to come out and say hi (and pick up a book if I have any left). Email for details as I figure them out (time and day).

I will end the week in Fort Wayne, Indiana at the new Kahunaz Lounge on either Wednesday or Thursday night (TBA). Again, Indiana Tiki people are welcome to come out and say Aloha (email for details, etc).

Hope to see you this week - midwest Tiki is the best - we're the ones who need it the most!

As always, mail-order autographed copies of Tiki Road Trip 2 are available here:

Vhooda is a disaster, a joke.
The Mayan temple look in the main dining room was sorta cool, but I took one look at the very pricey menu (the food seemed TGIFridays quality from what the people around me were eating), the manager I said hello to was brain dead, and the (very sexy) bartenders told me that they discontinued the tropical drink menu in the (almost) tiki bar because it was too much trouble. I bailed out of there and ate in Lakewood at Melt, which was pretty good (not at all Tiki).

I checked out Flower Child (small antique mall), which is about 2 blocks from my old pad near the Cleveland-Lakewood border, and found it to be very cool. Wish it had been there 15 years ago when I lived over there...
Lots of Tiki stuff in there, but I am being *extremely* selective about what I buy these days, so I just got a little Maori mask carved for the New Zealand tourist trade.

Both of these places, and a lot more, will be in my next article for Tiki Magazine, which will cover the Midwest.

Tiki Road Trip: Chicago (9/13), Milwaukee (9/22), Atlanta (9/29)

Aloha!

Tiki Road Trip 2 author James Teitelbaum will be doing three big book signings in the month of September!

The first is at Tiki Terrace in the northwestern Chicago suburb of Northbrook, on Thursday, September 13.

Live entertainment and vendors will also be on hand, and of course it is Zombie Thursday too - two-for-one Zombies all night long!

The fun starts at 7:00 p.m.!

Tiki Terrace is at 1 S. Wolf Rd., Prospect Heights, IL (847) 795-8454
For directions, see the Tiki Terrace web site:
http://thetikiterrace.com/tikievents.html

Note that this is James' ONLY scheduled book signing in his home town of Chicago this summer, so come out and say hello.

Just up the road in Milwaukee, James will be signing at the excellent Foundation bar on Saturday, September 22.

The Bikini Beachcombers and the Cocktail Preachers will be spinning tunes, and once again there will be vendors on hand to sell you even more Tiki swag for your own home lounge (you DO have one, don't you???).

Foundation: 2718 N. Breman, Milwaukee, WI (414) 374-2587

Finishing off the month, the Tiki Road Trip caravan takes to the skies for a trip to the amazing Atlanta Hilton, home of one of the best remaining vintage Trader Vic's restaurants. Their regular Tiki Torch Nights event takes place on Saturday, September 29. Trader Vic's will be unveiling their new menu that weekend, so come have some food.

There will be live music, James scribbling on books, and lots more. This Trader Vic's is always a pleasure to visit, and I hope to see all of my southern 'ohana out for a Mai Tai that night.

Thanks again to all of you for your readership and support!

mahalo nui

James T.

Tipsy, I was gonna wait until the second edition has completely sold out to announce that the third edition comes with a free bottle of rum, and every cover hand-painted by Shag, but that'd be letting the cat out of the bag too soon...
