haha! What a wise man, Dennis!
Just as long as I look slender and beautiful in all of them, go for it.

You may have to do some retouching.....

Ok, a *LOT*

Seriously, i had SO much fun and want pics too!! We really did come from all directions there! Lubbock, McKinney (and Dallas, of course), Houston (and temporary Kerrville), Austin, San Antonio - what other Texas spots am I leaving out? (No Laredo? Nacogdoches?)
Not to mention San Francisco! Hooray fro Humu and Rich for making the trip! It was truly a pleasure getting to have you both there.

Gotta have a gathering in other cities now. Houston home bars and San Antone home bars were both mentioned. And looking forward to Austin again

Thanks, Kenike, for all your hard work pulling it together! You rock.

I want to thank Dennis for putting together yet another awesome evening. It was great to see old faces and meet new ones. I hope we can continue this next year. Here's looking forward to Austin this summer. Cheers!

Yes, another thank YOU to Kenike! A grand time was had and we showed them wedding party types real dedication. To Mai Tais, that is...and Zombies, and Navy Grog, and, uh...whatever came next.

Until the drums call again!

Here's another pic of Angelica building the "super straw"
Had a great time at my first Tikiphile event!
I didn't get to meet everyone - will have to make better rounds next time!

We had the most wonderful time! The Dallas Trader Vic's is just gorgeous. It was such a treat to get to meet and re-meet so many fine folks; as expected, the Texas gang of tikiphiles are wonderful people to spend an evening with. Mahalo nui loa to Kenike for making it all happen, and to all the generous donors of raffle items, and to the Dallas Trader Vic's for taking such good care of us.

I don't have any event pics, really, but I did take lots of pictures of the Dallas Trader Vic's:


My Dr. Funk's Son, served in an ice volcano (with flaming lime garnish!)


The bar at Trader Vic's


The hostess stand


One of the booths in the dining room


The main dining room


I loved these cool divider screen tiles -- I'd never seen ones like these, I'd only seen the ceramic ones (these are metal)


The back dining room


The private dining room


The entry hallway

There are LOTS more pictures on Critiki:
Trader Vic's, Dallas

Our thanks to Kenike, too. This was the best of the Texas Tikiphile Trader Vic's gatherings, yet. What a turn-out! Monica said she enjoyed herself immensely, laughing and talking to the Icebergs, Rumbuddy, et al.

The Tiki Puka Puka Trio:
Rumbuddy (pacing herself quite well), Monica, and Mrs. Tropical Iceberg


Mr. Tropical Iceberg, Grande Kahu, Formikahini, Humuhumu


Kenike, with Koitiki (Bringer of Faraway Elixirs)


Unkle John, overwhelmed by savage impulses, chomps the head of a tiki.

Got some more to share!


Bar View


Apparently I was the only one not taking part in using the "super straw"


I don't really remember what was in the coconut mug - but I really liked the mug!
