Hello NE Tikis. I've been hanging around the tiki bar for too long without a posting - yes, this is my first. Perhaps it's the thaw in this New England winter that's releasing me from my cocoon. Perhaps it's because I've been handling my Hawaiian shirts to often as of late. Perhaps it's because I've been listening to Martin Denny again and again...
Anyway, I just stopped by to say hello. I'm pretty excited to read about the New Tiki in Westford, MA. It's been years since I've visited. I think I'll stop by this week for lunch. Also, I'm glad to see that there are some close-by memebers.
(Boxboro: my old town & Lowell: the city where I work.)
Speaking if work; it's time to get back - but my thoughts are certainly miles and miles away.
Cheers!

Speaking of glue--what's holding the NE Tiki Movement together? Is no on going to the Hu Ke Lau but me and Bargoyle? Is there a Jimmy Buffett concert on the 24th or what???


I plan on showing up, and I might even have the wife convinced to come, too.

We have a number of folks in the area. Perhaps we need a date for a gathering at the New Tiki?

How about April 7th, two weeks after the Chicopee meeting?

Or sooner, or later... I'm easy.

New Tiki trip sounds great. The 7th doesn't work for me though (family obligations for easter weekend).

I'll start a new thread on it...thinking the 14th if that works for everyone.

Now, back to the issue at hand....

HUKELAU!!!! CHICOPEE!!!!!! March 24th!!!!

C'mon gang!!! I'm telling you, the floor show is something you'll be talking about for years to come.

Pappy, post the link to your vids of last years v-day show. Lets get these people motivated! I'm a little disappointed with the enthusiasm (or lack thereof) on this one, and maybe those vids will convince everyone how they NEED to go to this show.

So, we've got Me (& Jess), pappy (+1?), and Scottes (+1?).... Not that we wont be a roudy little bunch, but come on!!! Lose yourself in the polynesian (and grand funk railroad) rhythms!!

Now, who's in?

Dont worry about tickets. i think they just add the $3 to the bill (or at least they used to). If not, I'll charge em, and everyone owes me a drink

Only 1 show, at 7pm.

I figure we'll gun for the 6pm seating, that way we can be somewhat done with eating and concentrate on boozing & watching the show! Might be able to make the lounge before hand, but with the st pats parade moved to the same day, we'll be barhopping in downtown hartford for most of the day, so we'll see how that all works out.

hula & tiki cats, lookin forward to meeting ya!

So, I've got the head count at 8 (barg+, pappy+, scottes+ hula+). If anyone else wants in, speak up soon. I'm making reservatioins tonight. i can prob change em if needed, but boy do they get pissed!!! lol.

Oh, and if anyone wants to join us sat morn/afternoon in hartford, give a holler. We'll be in front of "Black Eyed Sallys".

Ok, so I called last night to make our reservations for 8 (since no-one else jumped on the band wagon and I felt I couldnt wait anymore) and I was told that there were only TWO seats left. I didnt get em. The guy suggested calling back tonight (which I did) hoping for a cancellation, but I was told tonight that it is now oficially SOLD OUT.

Sorry folks. I really thought there would some last minute additions so I wanted to wait until the last possible moment to book.

looks like I waited too long.

on the plus side, its good that the huke is selling out that show. guess there's some interest in western mass afterall.

Anyone wanna do something else? We can prob still meet there just for dinner (no show) or hit some other place.

Once again, I'm so sorry. i really didnt think this show would sell out at all. Completely my fault.

i feel like such a schlub.

Sorry

Well, all is not lost. We didn't spill any rum.




How about pulling in the New Tiki and doing that this Saturday instead of waiting? And then we can switch back to the Huke on the 14th? And now we know to reserve on the 1st!!

since I can't do anything this weekend and I really want to try New Tiki, I'd prefer if you wouldnt switch it up to there.

but who am I?

I think we should keep the New Tiki as planned (as much as I'm excited to check it out). The owner is prepping for us based on that date, and SB can make it then...its not always easy to drag those Maine-iacs down from up north!

Pappy, whats the place in Newton?

And if all else fails, the bar is always open at The Lono. The owner is kind of a schlub, but the drinks are good
