Indeed! Grogster, this is the song I had mentioned to ya:

A classic of the cave man genre!

I had a really nice time, it was just the right size of crowd, where I felt I could take it easy, and yet I got to talk to almost everybody personally.
Kelly's rum rhapsodies were naaaice, she is not only a great mixologist, but also a great story teller: That story about the (recently deceased) 40-Year Tonga Hut regular named Dotty was fascinating! Every detail was so classic. Thanks so much everybody!

P.S.: Grog, I almost forgot the follow up to Troglodyte: Anthropoid!

GROG remember "Troglodyte" song now. Bertha Butt, one of the Butt sisters.

GROG hadn't heard "Anthropoid" before. Thanks for links Bigbro.

SOME pics !? Whoa, that's close to 40! Great job, Tom! It is nice that the Tonga Hut has its own "court photographer" that covers these events. What a happy family!

I think I figured it out now, Tom, it's not your flash alone that makes these look so good, you go in in post, lower the exposure and put in the soft shadow edges, right?

Sven's the Sound Of Tiki is a Smash Hit!

On Behalf of the Tonga Hut I would I would like to thank Sven for coming out to the Tonga Hut for this Smash Hit of a party! Great times were had by all. The tunes on Sound of Tiki are excellent and with great classic drinks such as, Hawaiian Eye, Pieces of Eight and the "Remix" version of the Sven-Tiki you cant go wrong. The success of the Bali Bai surprised me a bit as I wasn't sure Tiki Folks were going to like the Champagne so much, I Think it was the 2oz. of Hanalei house mix myself it's delicious. On the other hand, I'm not surprised, as a few know out there, I am a huge fan of the Tiny Bubbles. I really got a kick out of serving Sven and myself our "Sven-Tiki" cocktails in a couple of rare color and event Sven Tiki Mugs. Sven signed everything from CD's to BOT's, Tiki Modern and a few mugs for our delight.
Thank You to my boss Jeremy who is so open to new idea's and for his love of Tiki, it just keeps getting better. Thanks Marty Lush as always you big lounge lizard and in our world, that's a compliment. Thanks Manuel, Eric, Tonga Tom and Sherriyaki and Grog
Again, Thank You Sven and Naomi, Thank You everyone for coming out early Sunday and staying late it was too good to just go home and the Hut is so cozy and friendly.
See you all again soon! Thank You!
