Pardon my ignorance on this...Whay are you burning perfectly good Tikis ?



Well, it's kinda like skydiving. People ask, "Why are you jumping out of a perfectly good airplane?"
The answer: Because I do whatever the hell I want!

Actually, usually there is a problem with the tiki such as rot or bug infestation. Or of course, the creator just thinks it looks like shit and they want to get rid of all evidence that it ever existed (similar to my old high school report cards and pictures of ex-girlfriends.)

I think that the Tikiyaki Orchestra should play this year. I'm pretty sure there is enough room for the whole band (except Squid).

And sometimes the Tiki was made to be burned. Like this one from the No OC Beach Burn in 2006:

Sounds good! Tell us about (or show us) the Tiki's that are slated to burn.



If that question wasn't toned in your normal sarcasm them I think you brought up a good point! Let's have a contest for the best/worst wood tiki 2 feet tall or smaller brought to be burned!
I'll throw in a prize for the best and one for the worst. But they must be hand made by the owner.

Well it's about f'in time somebody got another one of these goin' - really missed having one last summer! (Or did we have one? Dang, the years are just blurring together...)

Pandora and the Good Doctor will definitely be there, with either Hakalugi-style hidden Beachbums or maybe High-Octane Jello tikis (my 'go-to' for drinking in public)!!

Here's one of my fave pix from a few years ago:



See you on the 9th!

Come on Ben. You're starting to sound like an indecisive noobie. Make a stand! Make it Happen! Say you WILL be there. I know you like fire and burning things. This is YOUR day!!!

This sounds like Tiki's answer to the "Burning Man" festival... only the temperature is nicer and there are toilets and showers. Oh, and the people are more fun. Ummm, and there is food and cocktails... and probably no man-hating drum circle women forcing you to bang a gong... On second thought, this is nothing like "Burning Man." Sounds like a rockin' good time. I hope I can join you all.

WooHooWahine and I were scoping out a good spot for the burn today... Thanks Bamboo Ben and Mrs Boo for the suggestions! Looks like we'll be close to restrooms, food stands, bike rentals and a whole lot more! All I gotta say is if you're planning on going, plan on getting there early! Fire, tiki, ocean, sand, Fire, hotdogs, s'mores, Fire, friends, fun and did I mention Fire? Don't forget to bring your wood! More info to follow!

Burning Witco will only drive up the prices of the remaining pieces. (about time)
Stay away from my place.

Best
