LOL...I always mean to grab a picture of that sign when I am on the road!!!

This is gonna be awesome all around. I haven't been to the TV in Palo Alto, and the hotel looks wonderful. Like previously said...love the CDs, but live is to die for.

Well its been a lot of work this week after all the rain and wind,
but I think that I am going to be able to get all my pools done on fri.
and come up sat morning, with Jason Wickedly, and his fiance.
(Thanks you 2)
Bummed I will be missing any festivities on fri. and sun.
but seeing Tikiyaki and the PA vics will have to be good enough for this trip.

What a blast! The set up was perfect. Just the right amount of people for the size of the room and the band was a hell of a lot of fun and really good. Trader Vic's Palo Alto did an outstanding job by having two bars going the whole time just outside of the conference room and the staff seemed really helpful and glad to have us.

Each of the vendors had some really great stuff. I got a pretty good size Moai from Vic at Jungle Trader. What a nice guy. He even let me use his dolly. I also picked up a Mondo Shag mug at the Tiki Farm booth. I hope all the vendors made some money and felt the event was worthwhile.

It seemed like a really good turnout of the Tiki Central regulars. Nice to see Mai Tai and Coco who were helping out by working the door.

Thanks to all who made the event happen. And thanks to Tikiyaki for making the trek up here. Please come back again. Let's do this again sometime.

Why yes, yes I did WooHoo

I think the only downfall was the overindulgence of mai tais on my end...helluva hangover today but it was worth it!

I really hope everyone involved thought it was worth it too. The band was fabulous, the TV staff was super nice and helpful, the venue made it intimate without being super crowded, all of the vendors seemed to be enjoying themselves so I hope they made some moola. Really happy to meet and see so many of the SoCal Ohana who made the trek up to our neck of the woods too.

Here's a few shots (please forgive my drunken pic taking skills!)
CoCo Loco checking everyone in :

The nicest couple in NorCal - CoCo Loco and Mai Tai:


The band:


The drum:

The Jim:


The crowd (things started to get kind of fuzzy right about here!):




The future Mr & Mrs Wickedly (so great to meet ya both!)


Joe Banks and I :


MP's set up -- his Square Bob velvet was already sold when I got there (no surprise-it was awesome!) but he was nice enough to hold onto one of his Square Bob mugs for me so I snapped that up. Thanks MP!






Tobunga/Eric October's set up. I got a few sets of his adorable Valentines and they are even better in person!(You all need to buy them...seriously!) One of my favorite things was this killer painting he did of the Islander. Really awesome in person and the frame is made out of the bamboo from there. He is so talented AND it is always great to see him and Manuel up here:






Pretty much the highlight of my night was when Vampiress and Marty met for the first time. Lets just say Vamp has dubbed him her future ex-husband


Some of Vic's (Jungle Trader) tikis making off with my mai tai :




Brenda's Tiki Hut and I ....please note that we are a little gone at this point!

Y'all come back now ya here!

Dayum...that was toooooooo much fun. I hardly have a voice left today. Tikiyaki rocked rocked rocked. Kudos to MaiTai & CoCo, as usual the dynamic duo!!! The hotel was great...and TV was awesome. Thanks to Brad & Melanie for dragging me back to my room after way too many drinks. Love the blow gun Vic...it will look great when I get it up on the wall.

Hoping this happens again real soon...it was a blast.
