You bet! Let me find out how much a shipping tube will be and then it'll be just postage.

Tiki Bocce was great. Great food. Great music. Great drinks. Great company. Great location. Only thing that wasn't great was the drive to and fro. I wish we were closer.

Thanks for having us. Looking forward to 2009, winning more games, and less fanny kissing.

Wow, That was so much fun. Mahalo everyone for bringing such great food and spirit! I'll see if I can get TofuJoe to write up a synopsis. Eventhough Dr. TikiMojo didn't make it, I did see lots of cameras. Please post at will!


Mahalo, again.

A super sensational wonderful time, as always. Big mahalo to the folks of Lund Manor for a great day of hot bocce action (and whatnot). Looking forward to next year!

Thanks to one and all who came out and made Tiki Bocce III a crazy success.

People came from LA, Sacramento and even San Antonio Texas!

Lund Manor was ready for them. Hinky Drinks was well appointed with a load of booze, some new decorations, a whole new bartender work area and, ye gods, running water!

You can just see the witco board which we turned into a handy mug shelf, our favorite Chongolio painting and some zany lamps Haole'Akamai found while thrifting in Oakland.



We had gallons of punch mixed up and ran a few drink specials.


As things seem to go out at the Drink, an on the fly drink special spontaneously materialized. While stocking up at the Bev'Mo for the party, a bottle of
Rhum Clement Creole Shrubb found its way home. Its an orange liquor made with curacao oranges and Martinique rum. Sound like anything familiar? We paired it up with Coruba Rum, lime juice, orgeat and simple syrup and served up a bunch of Shrubb MaiTai's. Didn't take long to run out of Shrubb, but it was good. Thanks to Kevin and Maria for holding down the bar duties!

The MaiKai Gents were excellent as always. Sometimes I think we throw this party just to be able to hear them play more. Mahalo to Judd and the gang.


Good Grief there was good food. TikiWineBear's coconut encrusted portabello mushrooms were amazing. Brenda's Tiki Hut and the Chief bartender brought home made sourdough, yummm. Jen Tiki's ginger dressed Hicama and Mango salad was superb. Apparently Humu brought a salad. I think it lasted about 12 seconds. All I saw was the empty dish. Thanks to everyone who went the extra mile to make such amazing tasty treats

But this party is really all about the Bocce. Tiki Bocce in fact. This year we managed to get the new Bocce Ball set ready in time for play!


At some point when the backyard was full of friends, music, great Bocce you realize that all of the work that goes into this thing is so worth it. Thanks to everyone for indulging my crazy need to merge Tiki and Bocce.

The tournament this year was fantastic. It may be remembered as the year we went from a tiki party where people play bocce, to a bocce tournament where people drink tiki drinks.

Congratulations to Alameda's own team Bali High who played well all day emerging with Top Bocce Honors!


For you sports nerds, you can check out the Tournament Recap and the Box Score

There are so many people to thank I wouldn't know where to start. To all of those who cleaned the house and kitchen as the party rolled on. You are my heroes.

Thanks to Haole'Akamai for the birthday cake!

And thanks to MaiTai, a dress code will be strictly enforced in the future.

And we'd sure appreciate it if you could post any pics you might have snapped.

Hey Tofu Joe, there was some "fanny kissing" involved in that 7th game (the one that says "lost scorecard"), so I think it's safe to say the score was 7-0!

Well, make sure you're on the list for next year. Us being Latvian and German-Scotch, we need more "family" on the court, if you know what I mean...

A very big MAHALO to Haole'akamai and to Tofu Joe!!!! My wife and I had a great time. Thank you for being great hostess and host. The drinks were exceptional as always, mahalo to everyone for bringing such wonderful food, and the bocce tournament was thrilling. I can't wait for the Tikibocce IV. Dennis and I hope to restore the Cannibals to glory and win a huge trophy. Mahalo!!!

PS: Thanks again for the little trophy and I promise to behave at Tikibocce IV. ;>)

No need to save all the way to next year; we'll have other Bocce adventures in Polynesian paradise that is the Lund Manor Back 46 before then.

By the way, where are the pictures? I know people were taking them? JenTiki, you out dehr?
