"...I guess a sign of a person turning into an old fogey is when you wake up one morning and realize: "If I have to hear one more 'smooth jam' from 92 THE BEAT, I am going to scream!!!!!!"

***snip***

Yah!

Thanks Lucas; back on track here.

New drink suggestion for all us fogies: Orgeat, Fresh Lime Juice, Cointreau, J. Wray and Nephew of a certain age; shake with ice, pour into glass (no straining now, remember?);

And a float of Geritol.

Photo ID and recent colonoscopy report (really, we don't want to see the pictures!) required to prove eligibility...

We'll call it the Fogey Mai Tai, or perhaps the Fo Tai?
(hey, maybe after my birthday this Friday... or not? No. I think I'll stick with plan "A:" the Tuesday $5 Mai Tai's, made Sam's own way.)

See y'all at the Oasis, then at Sam's on the 21st!

OK AGAIN...So who's on the roll call for Tues the 14th?? I heard some are going to Bahooka? I think it would be fun if we could cash in on this Tiki Tuesday's thing at Sam's & do Bahooka on another night. I am told we have quite a few OUT of TOWN people coming in for TO so it would be great to all be at SAM'S.....The more the merrier input???

Oh man, don't get me started on colonoscopies!!! I see one in my future! (I already had the cystoscopy-horrible, barbaric, medieval torture)

Regardless, after reading these posts again, I came to the conclusion that most people are right, and I should be thankful that there even is a Sam's, because it could easily be another starbucks or jamba juice. It's well run-there is hope. Perhaps it will last a long, long time. I always feel happy when I am there, and I guess I will just have to mentally tune out the hip-hop music. Perhaps some stealthy tikiphile will sneak in an esquivel or Les baxter song here and there.

Wondering? is this thread named Tiki Tues. at Sam's Aug.14? Yes it is under Ca. events? yes but not under "Let me go on whining & complaining and over expressing my opinion in the wrong thread" I don't feel this is the place for your complaint. Perhaps I offend you but this offends me that I am trying to make contact with interested members & this incorrect context just gets in the way. Maybe start a new thread in a more appropriate forum. So again I will ask as I am actually using this forum for what it is intended. Thank You

The Smokin Menehunes will not be playing Tuesday

I received this from Palika:

Aloha Kakou:

The Smokin' Menehunes have been designated the house band for Sam's
Seafood
in Sunset Beach, and will be performing for special events held at the
restaurant. Our next performance there is scheduled for Thursday
evening,
August 16th.

The 'Tiki Tuesdays' venue will continue with various entertainment.

Just a short note to keep you all informed.

Mahalo and a hui hou!
Palika

Easy now Hiphip; that was one of the band members excited at the venue, wanting it to be even better, and me disagreeing to disagree, but demanding it my way anyway.
In the end it seems to me we agree to agree on what we already agreed on before we started, but we most certainly needed our process to figure that out.
Lucas had some good points relevant to Tiki Tuesdays' success, and therefore this and all future related postings on topic, and I was just being an ass.

Does that seem about right to you Lucas?

Sorry to muck up your thread; we like Sam's and want it to be great, this Tuesday and every other day for that matter.

You may have the thread back now.

That's correct. it was just me making suggestions for improvement, but perhaps at the wrong time, in the wrong place. (I should give this disclaimer-10 years ago, my career was restaraunt management. I was a GM and then area/regional manager for several stores in a large and succesful chain)

From Palika of The Smokin Menehunes:

Aloha Tikicentralites,

This is Palika, ukulele player for the Smokin Menehunes. There has been much discussion on this thread about what constitutes a classic tiki/Polynesian restaurant and bar.

Believe me, I love the classic tiki establishments having played many of them along Waikiki when I was regularly gigging in my youth on Oahu. Iím from Kaneohe, home of Honeyís, while not necessarily ďtikiĒ it was the birth place of Waikikiís premier performer Don Ho.

We must remember that not long ago Samís was closed and all bemoaned another nail in the coffin of tiki establishments. Demi, the general manager of Samís has worked tirelessly to open a place that has the feel of the classic tiki bar as well as the appeal to market to customers across the spectrum. She has transformed many fine tiki establishments in Southern California such as the Maíkai in Santa Monica.

If we remember correctly, the old Samís left something to be desired in the way of tropical drinks and food to say the least. Demi and her crew have done an outstanding job bringing ono grind to the new Samís, and the Tuesday mai tais are discounted only

in price, not taste !!

Concerning hip hop, here are my thoughts on the matter: Hawaiian music has always been an amalgam of musical trends drifting over from the mainland and Europe since the arrival of Captain Cook to the Islands. Now Iím not saying the next Hawaiian musical trend is Snoop Doggie Dog meets Don Ho, but that wouldnít exactly be out of character for Hawaiian music. After all, Hawaii is known as the melting pot of the Pacific.

Anyways, letís enjoy the fact that we have an updated classic tiki restaurant and bar nearby, and let Demi continue to conduct the business end of Samís as we enjoy a Mai Tai and some great food (one of my personal favorites is the Spam macaroni and cheese!).

Mahalo and a hui hou (until we meet again),

Palika

Ps: The Smokin' Menehunes will be there Thursday, August 16th. I will be there tonight

strumin' my ukulele.

10-4 WooHoo.

But I must admit the idea of Snoop Doggie Ho doesn't seem so far fetched...

OK. Done now.

Next Tuesday 07/21/07: Mai Tai's for Moai's in Mu'u mu'u's.
