Everyone raise your rum barrels to GROG, for putting together another great evening at the Tonga Hut. Some seriously lovely merchandise tonight. My wallet is much thinner now, but I'm one happy Tikigirrrl. Always fun to see Doug and Stacie and I can't wait to frame my "Jesus Loves Tiki" print and wear my new Happy Chi jewelry! Tiki Diablo, your mugs rock, and Go-Go Tiki... well, you'll be getting an order from me soon for one of those underwater fantasy half-barrel mugs (in a brunette version PLEASE)! Gene, you better call me next time you're in town, or I'll make YOU buy me a drink when I'm next in Vegas! Very nice to meet you, Dave, and I think your necklaces are beautifully made. Eileen, you were definitely missed, but we all hope you're feeling better soon. In the meantime, everyone start getting ready for Spring (ALOHAAAA to warmer weather) and all the upcoming Tiki-fying events this year. And look forward to the next issue of Tiki Magazine! We're all turning in our latest articles in the next week or so. Aloha for now! -- Kari

2nd that - Grog, another great night of fun at the Tonga Hut! Bought a Doug Horne (got in a little trouble with my wife!) but it was worth it!

Also spoke with GoGo and his wife Dani for awhile. SUPER nice people and the Go tiki mugs (which i hadn't seen in person) are awesome. They ended up giving me FOUR pendants and one of thier prized free willy mugs FOR FREE. Go buy some - you won't be disappointed. Thanks again for saving me my funkey monkey shot glasses. GO TIKI ROCKS!

Thanks everybody who came to the Tonga Hut art show. It was a smaller crowd this time overall, but a good turnout of TCers. The last time we had a Tonga Hut art show and it was cold and rainy, that was a smaller crowd as well. Seems like Clifornians can't drive in the rain.

Thank you to all the artists who participated, and thank you to the Tonga Hut owners Ana and Jeremy, and the bartenders Trevor, Megan, and Deborah (or Debra?) for slinging the drinks.Thanks DJ Devil One for some fun tunes.

This year is the Tonga Hut's 50th anniversary, so hopefully we can help support our local Tiki bars , so they can survive another 50 years.

Mahalo.

Ernie

What a great night! Happy 50th Tonga Hut. 1958-2008 Looking forward to the 50th party! Yeah Soccer Tiki, Tiki Paparazzi,thats me covering as Hiltiki pointed out! The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Tiki.
The Tonga Hut is all Good and the Incredible Tiki art show made it even better!

Thanks to all the artists for sharing your cool work. Ana, Jeremy and Grog for putting this show together and the great Mai Tai's!
My compliments to the Tonga Hut drink review board.
I also want to thank the TCers that answered Wildsville's questions on and off camera in prep for his intervention this May 10th in Palm Springs.
Together we can help Wildsville Man. Lets not forget poor Andy, he loved Tiki Too.
Thanks for keeping the Tiki spirit alive everyone.

(Grog didn't even have to use his club once all night either.

And whats up with this guy? Mojo working or what? I'm jealous

Thanks to everyone who braved the rain to join us for our first art show this year. Grog you did a great job coordinating the artists. Thanks to all the artists, DJ Devil 1, all the party goers and our staff for making it happen. Go Tiki thanks so much for the Tiki Tunes Jukebox - its already in our display case! And thanks to Horne for the amazing mask- its already up on the wall behind the bar!

Let's keep this thing going. We're looking forward to celebrating our 50th Anniversary with you all year long!

Viva Tiki!!

Ana and Jeremy

I know some people hate sharing their blurry pics.

I like to give variety!

It was great meeting everybody at the show! Thanks for putting together yet another great event, GROG! Sorry that I didn't show up in my Power Ranger PJ's. Betty just didn't make me a good enough offer.
