the sandbar is a relatively new bar/restaurant in brookfield...a suburb of chicago that's not far from where all the action will be....they regularly host a slew of bands like the astronauts, cocktail preachers and other surf/lounge type acts, as well as some rockabilly.....

Anyone who is interested in vending their wares at Exotica should get on board while there is still space. Vintage and/or original Tiki, Hawaiiana, aloha attire, etc. is ideal. There is a limited number of spaces available and booths are very reasonable.
For more info email: bamboolodge@comcast.net

There are still a couple of spaces available. Anyone interested contact us for more info.

Starting this Saturday at the 3rd Annual Gala Tiki Show & Party there will be a limited number of tickets for Exotica 2007 available at the DvA gallery. Everyone who purchases their ticket at DvA will get a limited edition serigraph from Exotica 2005 featuring the art of Dr. Alderente. These are special prints with an experimental blue pearl base-coat instead of white stock background that was used for the edition. If you plan to attend Exotica this summer and have been waiting to get your ticket, here is a great opportunity to grab your ticket and pick up a rare print as well. There are less than 2 dozen of these pearlescent serigraphs and they will only be available at the DvA gallery.

We'll see you at the opening.

Man, I sure wish Haole Kats!!! would have been able to make the Chicago trip financially viable for us again this year. We just couldn't work out the numbers to do it, or we sure would have. Although there was no Exotica, last year's road trip was a blast, and The Sandbar was a highlight. The Sandbar is a VERY nice room. Nice vibe, GREAT food, nice stage -- with great amps and an incredible sounding VINTAGE drum kit already on it!!!

If any of y'all go, try their ribs. I was very impressed with the quality of the meat and how perfectly done they were.

Man, if we weren't so busy, I'd be tempted to just grab a cheap flight and come as a participant...

Any word on the vendor list? Is there going to be a tiki mug for this event? Inquiring minds want to know.

Not shy to say I'll be vending at my 2nd Exotica... I really missed it last year... the music, entertainment and the people are all great!

I'll have my handcarved tiki masks and wallhangers (which made their premier at Hukilau and were a big hit) handcarved tiki idols, tiki signs, leopard fur tiki shields and a wide variety of handcarved tikis in sizes from 10 inches to 5 feet. Stop by and say hi and pick up one of a kind tiki creations that are all handmade right here in the Tiki Heartland!

We are not doing a mug for the event. Exotica is not going to try to sell attendees anything. Rather, we are giving something away for free! The first 200 people through the door at FitzGerald's on Saturday will get a free Exotica 2007 poster. It's a 4 color print designed by Duke. It measures 11" X 17" and each of the limited edition will be signed and numbered.



You are welcome to spend your money with some of the vendors who will be showing and selling their fine wares. These include:
Bamboo Bimbo's Beach Boutique
DvA Gallery
Lake Surfer
Night and Day Vintage
Rick's Vintage
Spinout Records
Tiki Terrace
Trader Daves' Shack

We are looking forward to a great time.
-Amy

Any news on whether Chef Sahngri-La will be open in time for the event?

I went there last night, and the "Closed until further notice" sign was still on their doors (I heard reports at DvA Gallery last weekend that the Chef was closed, so it has been well over a week now).

Anyone have insight?
