There is definite interest on the part of Waitiki for the Friday Show. We would get ourselves there and back. Just interested in the hang, and the warm-up. We're all about the warm-up!!!

Sox, PM shows as gone through, but unread. Login & then there should be a little flashing envelope in the upper right of the screen...next to personal messages. I'll email it to ya too.

MAYOR!!!

Glad to have you aboard! I know Mr. Ho cant make it, how about the Prof & Smilin' Jimmy?

Wish I could get out to the Block next week to see ya, but too much going on to take off for an island for a few days (such is life).

You guys got any public gigs in New England after you're back from FLorida? Or is the Tiki Tour the first one? ...if thats the case, we may have to remedy that somehow.

AloooooooooooooHA!!!!!

Hope those who went to Hukilau had a fun & safe journey, and welcome back to our Northeastern shores!

I figured I'd whet everyone's appetites with a quick peek at some of the Raffle items our TC vendors have been generous enough to donate.

Lets start with.......

Mugs....


Anyone out there like mugs?

Well, here's a nice Skull Monkey donated by Munktiki:


And our friends at the Farm (Tiki Farm, that is) also sent along some nice raffle items:


and



and




We also got some mugs from our buddies at Bartiki:



and



and the limited edition Bartiki logo mug as well (#89)



So, now you're saying, "But Bargoyle, what am I gonna put IN those mugs if/when I win them?"

Well, the good people at Triple 8 distillery have got you covered there (and they've even thrown in something to wear while drinking!). We've got two bottles of their Hurricane Rum, distilled right here in New England!! And that bottle on the left is a super rare vintage 2003. Good luck finding one of those in the wild!




"Zowie Bargoyle!! Thats great! I've got a mug full of rum, and I'm clothed, but what can I do to occupy my time while drinking this fine rum out of this wonderful mug?"


Dont fret! The many artisans of Tiki Central have got you covered there as well. Do you appreciate Art?

You will, after you see the wonderful hand signed prints that Sam Gambino has donated:



Whats that? You've still got some wall space that isn't covered with Tiki? Then Henrik over at VanTiki has got a super cool way to fix that. Check out the killer hand made tiki tiles he was nice enough to donate:



Or if those arent spooky enough for you, he sent these as well:



"Zoinks Bargoyle, the Tiki Central artists are amazing. I want to cover my entire house with their work"

Well, right you should!! And with the stuff donated from the Thor Stor, you'd be well on your way:

We've got a DOZEN different 11 x 14 matted prints (ready for framing)



As well as FOUR 9x18 Idol prints, and TWO canvas Idol prints!!



and, as if that wasn't enough, they also threw in a bunch of Wobblers!!



"Sweet Jeebus, Bargoyle, thats pretty cool. And I LOVE little trinkets like those wobblers"

Then boy-howdy are you in luck, as Stuff-o-Rama was kind enough to give us some cool trinkets. KeyChains...Shag Hint-mints...'fridge magnets...oh my.



and in case you can't see any of it well, they also sent along this super-swank Hula-Girl Lamp to light your way:



"Heysuess Marimba, Bargoyle. Thats quite a bit of stuff you've got to raffle off. But what about carvings? I didn't see any carvings"

Whoa, settle down there friend. We've got carvings. Flat Earth Trading has seen to that.

We've got a nice big mask for your wall



or maybe you wanna jam out on the Tiki-tar?



Or have that little bit of wall space that still needs covering?



And thats just the begining! New raffle items are comming in all the time. Some of our own NE Ohana are making special items to add to the raffle, and we havent even got into Swag!!!

And in case you were wondering, EVERYONE gets a raffle ticket with their admission to the bus.

Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase at a reasonable price ($5 for an additional arms length of tickets, or something like that)

I cant thank all the TC vendors & Artists enough for their generosity. Please support these people with your spending money whenever you can.

See you all in August!

OK, maybe now I am the one drinking too many mai-tais.

Was there any new discussion about arranging Friday transportation to see Waitiki for those not willing (or more accurately probably not able) to drive to and from the hotel?

If not, how far is the show from the hotel? Is it taxi-able without a huge cost? If there are others in the same boat arriving on Friday, let me know and maybe we can arrange a mini-van taxi or something.

Excellent job on the swag and thanks to all the contributors. The stuff looks unbelievable.

By the way, the Hukilau was a good time and there was talk of the NE tour. In fact I was able to meet others coming along - looking forward to catching up and raising another drink or two.

In fact, here's a picture of me with my Mai Kai mystery bowl. Yes, I am an idiot, staring at the bowl and not the girl, but it was hot and I was thirsty.

Hory Clap, Bargoyle! Dat sum swank schwag dere! If I weren't already coming to play, I'd come just to ogle da mugz! And the Gambino prints, and the trinkets, and some of the other things, not to forget the drinks, but...

Can't wait!!

Friday is the HuKeLau Polynesian Show. Waitiki will be attending (some of em at least) but not performing.

Right now I have a bus reserved to drive us from The Super 8 to the HuKeLau on friday night. Anyone who wants in on the HuKeLau Bus is gonna have to shell out an additional $25 ea, and the bus will be leaving the Super8 at 4.30 on friday afternoon. We need at least 20 people or it doesnt happen.

This will be the cheapest way to get to the show from the hotel. A cab will cost at least triple that, each way. Its about 1.5 hr drive, so refreshments WILL be served on the bus (Mai Tais, I think), and with the way the Huke mixes drinks, us bus people will probably be the only drunk ones at the show!

So, at last run through, the people who wanted a friday Hukelau bus were:
Bargoyle+1
Pappy
Johnman+1
Granite+1
Leisure +1
Martiki-bird+1
Tikicat+1
Paige+1

So, thats 15. Anyone else staying at the super 8 on firday night who wants in? Primo? Thunderlips? 5 more and we are go.

um, is there any way to buy raffle tickets if circumstances have occurred that make it impossible for you to attend the tour but want to support the effort?

hmmm?

Since the Sat. bus is sold out, I am wondering if it is possible to hit the last couple of stops by car including the Waitiki concert, and stay at the motel, or if this participation is only possible via signing up for the now sold-out bus package.

Thanks,
Kiki
P.S. It IS the weekend right before my birthday!
