Akuuuuka Luuuukaka... or whatever those music people (Waitiki) say when we all have our cocktails (in approved containers).

Mega Mucho Mahaloz to:

Myself; for knowing how to get on a bus (which later felt like an airliner) and how to eat and drink.

the Bargoyle; I could not have gotten blottos at so many grottos with out your lovin' leadership.

the Paptacular Pappy the Sailor...

I remember the bus ride
Rainin' down as cold Mai Tais
Shadows of a hat
A face through a window
Imbibing all the night
The night goes into

Mornin', just another day?
Sippin' people pass my way
Lookin' in their eyes
I see a hazy memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Pappy

Well, you came and you took lots o' pictures
But I sent you a lame thank you, oh Pappy
well, you greeted me and gave me some free stuff
you are my hero. oh, Pappy

I'm standing on a wedge of lime
I've walked away from the Bali Hai
Caught up in a world of cocktails and pupus
All the tikis in my mind
And nothin' is rhyming, oh Pappy

Well, you came and you took lots o' pictures
But I sent you a lame thank you, oh Pappy
well, you greeted me and gave me some free stuff
you are my hero. oh, Pappy

Yesterday's a dream
I face the mornin'
tail between my legs
The pain is callin', oh Pappy

Well, you came and you took lots o' pictures
But I sent you a lame thank you, oh Pappy
well, you greeted me and gave me some free stuff
you are my hero. oh, Pappy

Well, you came and you took lots o' pictures
But I sent you a lame thank you, oh Pappy
well, you greeted me and gave me some free stuff
you are my hero!



Also, thanks to the round robin / motel mixer / room crawl participants:

Forbidden Island's Pirate Grog recipe. Merci Martiki!
Leisure Master and Birdgirl -- Jungle Birds; exciting cocktail in hand painted mugs (Compari makes it awesome) and the deliciously infamous Tortola Rum Bundt.
Martiki-bird and Damian -- Canton Jewel and Rum Tropical; fruity and spicy a vertible taste sensation, and the wicked SPAM app!!! Thanks again for the life saving homemade Orgeat!
Johnman -- Jaded Passion; I have a hard time at this point remembering... green cup and a delicate limeyness (something else was good in there).
Thunderlips -- Tongolala; wave a can of Pepe Lopez over 6oz of pure rum and blend it (at 2:00am) = #1

Lastly but not leastly all the great attendees: Hula Cat and Tiki Cat, leisure master and Birdgirl, Granite and TikiKate, jpmartdog, Rapscallion and Lilikoi, paranoid123, SBinM, Martiki-bird and Damian, Lukeulele, johnman and Miss, Thunderlips and Carrie, Scottes, rain, velveteenlounge, tikimortis, RugbyMatt, Tikisgrl, and other people whose names I have forgotten to remember. You all rock!

That's right, it WAS a big love-fest!


Great Success!


p.s. I hate raffles

Words cannot express the appreciation I have for the First Annual
Northeast Tiki Tour. Notwithstanding, I offer the following as a small
acknowledgement. It is amazing and refreshing to find so much
vintage Polynesian pop in such good repair in suburban Boston and I'm glad,
in my small way, to have thrown some business their way. VelveteenLounge
and Kristiki are already planning our return trips.

My thanks go out to Bargoyle and Pappy for their clearly Herculean efforts
in getting this shindig together, JohnMan as he was namechecked for his
help, Jess as I know for sure nothing happens without support
from the spouse, our tireless bus driver, who put up with a full complement
of tiki lunatics for 12.5 hours and should have had a tip jar, the proprietors of
all the fine establishments for recognizing a good audience when they saw it, the
management of the Bali Ha'i in particular for going beyond the call and
digging out the black mugs for all the swag-starved participants,
Waitiki for performing a great set under the influence and
bothering to release an actual Lp in 2007 (award-winning, congrats), the
vendors for donating an enormous array of great merchandise for the raffle, Martikibird
for the nightcap, all of my fellow travelers for providing the demand for such an
event and VelveteenLounge for getting me into this stuff in the first place.

I look forward to Son of the Return of NETT, Beyond the Valley of the
NETT, Conquest of the NETT and all the other sequels, plus meeting many
of y'all at smaller gatherings during the year. An amazing vibe was
generated during the Tour and I think we can keep it going all year 'round.

ps: Primo, I feel your pain. If you're in need of a raffle prize, pm velveteenlounge and myself your snail mail address.

That's the most beautiful thing anyone's ever written about me. *sniff* I have to go now. I have something in my eye.

At least one of the "Internets" seems to be working for me now. I've had problems getting on here since the NETT. I just figured the traffic to TC was so overwhelming that we crashed the servers. GLAD TO BE BACK FINALLY!

Enough of my Internet woes. I can't add much more than what has already been said. The NETT was an incredible event and pulled off with what appeared to be zero issues. I was a little nervous at first when the bus rolled off and bumped some curbs then proceeded to do donuts in a parking lot. Guess that's how you break in a bus load of Tiki freaks. After that it was smooth sailing.

captainquad - no thanks necessary for me. I had two small missions on this tour:
- keep Bargoyle awake to return the van on Saturday morning
- create a cheese ball slide show and rip a few episodes of Tiki Bar TV for the bus ride. I have tons of photos for next years slide show - plus some incriminating video too! I'll be sending the blackmail PMs soon.

Bargoyle, Jess, Pappy and WAITIKI - super mahalos to you for providing us with one incredible weekend.
To all the round robin hosts - thank you so much for you hospitality!
jpmartdog - MANY thanks to you for the awesome Tikitar carving. Once the bar goes up it will be one of the centerpiece wall items.
To everyone - thanks for hanging loose and being one of the coolest group of people I've ever had the pleasure of being with. Miss even had an incredible time and she doesn't even drink! That says a lot.

Enough sappy stuff - let's get on with the pictures! Ok, they're not ready yet. I'll be posting a follow up within a couple of hours. Stay tuned...

I'm so forgetful! Thanks to Hula Cat and Tiki Cat for the awesome clothes - Miss finally has some Hawaiian garb!

So... enough with the Black OMC mug from the Bali Hai! It is amazing.... and the owners of the Bali Hai nonchalantly pulled it out of the attic, on the day, and said "Oh, I found these too!"

In original boxes. This one even had the cellophane tape still intact... it seperated by the time I got home on Sunday! Box label - No 47/21 N-2 made in Japan

Opening the box was better than Christmas Morning!

The sleek beauty is of black with an eggshell finish.

The back of the mug, OMC sticker on the bottom.

The black mug, yes the black mug, oh the black mug. Of course later on they broke out the green mugs, but we all got one of those too.

Enjoy!

Bargoyle - I'll pic some of the choice pics and send them your way. If you see any you want hi-res let me know.

Nice shots johnman! Thanks!

You know, I wasnt the only one disco dancing at the Kowloon.....I probably looked the silliest, but at least I wasn't the only one.

Anyone have a picture of me where I'm NOT making some silly face or hand gesture? ...anyone?? ...anyone? ...bueller? ...bueller?

You'd have to be sober, or sleeping.

Oh Paptacular Paptificent Paplidelic Pappy:

I guess you were victimized by the TC server issue Sunday night when I wrote a much more eloquent and verbose thank you just to have it disappear after clicking submit. I usually always click copy before submitting but... When retyping I hurried through and that was the result. Sorry, but I make better.

Hey, who has the template for the travel mug insert? I washed mine and the ink ran and now I'm sad. My map leads to nowhere.

Thanks!!! No big rush, obviously, but I wasn't sure if you'd gotten it. My email has been flaky.
