Cant wait to see what you bring, Lake!

Also, we've convinced Sandy to break out all the old menus & pics & ephemera from the Tiki's heyday and put them on display, along with a tour of the place on Sunday at noon. So, you'll be able to see the rooms we aren't using for Ohana, & hear a bit about the Tiki Resort if you aren't leaving at the crack of dawn on Sunday.

And again, for those who are coming in a day or two early, or staying a day or two late, pretty much ALL of the attractions in Lake George will be open. The Diving Horse, all the weird little roadside attractions & classic amusement parks, water slides, mini golf, tourist traps, wineries, bars, restaurants, beaches, boats, etc etc etc.

You'll find it time well spent to go exploring. And be sure to go get a Hawaiian Ice at the Pink Roof!! (A cool old A-Frame ice cream joint over by Around the World Mini Golf, right by the beach!) Or a root beer float at the A&W Drive-In (Yes, they still have car hops...although they don't wear roller skates anymore)

Seriously, there's enough to do outside of Ohana to fill an entire kitschy week. Take a peek:

See ya at the Lake!

Wow! Even a haunted house walkthrough attraction that'll be open:

Has anyone here been through it? Is it any good?

We're coming up on Thursday and staying a day late to check out some of the local flavor. We were bummed the Pink Roof was closed last time - we'll DEFINITELY check it out this year.

Bargoyle, the Lake George Chamber of Commerce should be sending you a check for all your work promoting the town!

Can't wait!

There are actually a couple of Haunted Houses in LG.

Dr. Morbid's has two attractions. One is a wax museum (I think it's called Frankenstein's Castle or something), VERY well done, and the other is a more traditional interactive haunted house... Dr. Morbids. Both are downtown, about a block from each other.

Also downtown, there's an alien encounter haunted house, but I haven't been through that one.

There's also a buttload of old school arcades downtown, most of which still have pinball machines (as a pin-head, this thrills me)!

It's about a 10 minute walk from the Tiki to get downtown, and you can walk Canada street to see all the cool old motor lodges & tourist traps, or you can walk the lake/boardwalk, and see the pristine beauty of Lake George... with the tourist traps just on one side of you. lol.

And by the way, I use the words "Tourist Trap" lovingly. The town is a complete throwback to a bye-gone era. Nowhere else would the Tiki have been able to stand the test of time, and indeed, the 50s/60s era googie wackiness & neon signs that abound ADD to the wonder of Lake George, rather than detract from it. I mean, if you're into that whole retro thing.

I actually did speak to them a bit this year (no check though. lol ), and I think they're onboard next year to help promote the event, and get us some deals on local attractions, etc.

As it stands this year, we're going up early and trying to convince at least the mini golf places to give us a discount again. So anywhere you go, show em your Ohana badge. You just might get a deal!! Or, at the very least, you'll get a puzzled look!

OHANA is almost here!!!!

I'll try at the booze store, but I dont think my kung-fu is that strong.

My Tiger-Style is no match for their NY-Liquor Tax Style.

lol

Just a reminder folks, last day of ticket sales is TODAY.

Oh, and call the Tiki first if you need a room. We've had a few open up as some folks are now sharing rooms, or had to cancel last minute. They seem to fill up as soon as they open, but it doesn't hurt to call, and hey, you might just get lucky! 518-668-5744

see ya at the lake!

Like Bargoyle said, there will be TONS of vendors selling TONS of goodies. Lakesurfer has a lot of great things going on right now and is sure to impress.
I'll be there too with a few new things including a custom tiki chess set that I designed and carved.
I'll be taking orders for this and much more at Ohana.
Get 'em while they last!



Check out the rest of the picture for the chess set and a few other new things at
The Leeward Lounge .
See you in Lake George!

I've said it before, but sweet jeebus finkdaddy, that is some nice work man!!!

A mere few hours left before the Ohana door closes (we've only got a few spots left anyway) so don't get left out in the cold! (Actually its not gonna be cold this year. High 70s to low 80s during the day, mid 60s at night! w00t!!)

Wow, that is one killer chess set Mr. Fink! I can't wait to see it up close.

Well, I'm really getting excited for this event. I've never been to up state NY before and Lake George looks like a WONDERFUL place start to discover it.

Diving Horse?! Ohhhh, this is a must.... I did a little digging online, and sure enough ---- "Lightning the Diving Horse!!!" And in the Magic Forest no less. I sure hope he is going to be performing when I'm out there. I hope he sells t-shirts

Babalu,

the entire magic forest is something to behold.

The worlds tallest uncle sam (and santa i think) are in the parking lot, and the storybook statues throughout the place are weathered in way that most of em are more creepy than cute.

a DEFINITE photo op there!! lol

I can't go this year, but next year I'm going to see if it's possible to save the sheckles and do both the Hukilau and the Ohana. One week of Tiki to the power of 10 is not enough! I can't let it go!
