Tobor, those were at Rough Draft Halloween parties...



Ah, yes. The halls of the studio still to this day reverberate with the faint erotic wailings of that particular Halloween bash. I only got to sample one of the RDS parties & that one was more like a Church Ice Cream Social compared to the ones you went to.

GROG preview of what GROG have in art show. (This is the back side. It's based on idea Kirby tell GROG to make) GROG waiting for underglaze to arrive by UPS so GROG can color it and fire it. Then GROG have to clear glaze it and fire it again. That is, if it survives the first firing. It's had a crack in the bottom that GROG has had to repair a couple of times as it's drying. So hopefully the repair will hold and not crack even more in the bisque firing. Or if it does crack, hopefully it's small enough the glaze will fill it in.

    On the "Light-er" side of topic,the Tonga Hut doesn't carry Bud Light... in fact we carry NO Anheuser-Busch products at all which means you may wait a very long time for one

    The fact remains, the Tonga Hut is working diligently on making the Tonga Hut the best Tiki establishment anywhere and will contunue to for another 52 years. The Tonga Hut in fact celebrates her 52nd Anniversary as the Original Tonga Hut this month.

    It is in fact, the oldest thriving Tiki Bar in not only L.A. but also in So.Ca. The Tonga Hut was never a bar and restaurant or a Hunting Lodge decor bar with a "tiki patio" added on in later years just a mid-century modern type "Tiki Bar" only to "Trader Sam's" in San Francisco is it younger than.(per Critiki) FACT.

    Fact, the Tonga Hut has only had three(3) owners. In fact, two(2) brothers, Ace & his brother opened it and ran it as the Tonga Hut never any other name. Fact, "Tiki Drinks" were on the menu such as the original house drink the "Tonga Punch" fact, this cocktail is still remains on the menu today.

    Fact, the Tonga Hut is still here at it's original location,
    12808 Victory Bl. No. Hollywood Ca.
    Open 7 days a week 4pm-2am with Happy Hour from 4-8pm

    HipHipaHulA's "Tonga Time" Friday & Saturday 4:30-6:00pm extra $$savings on Tiki cocktails. Happy Hour continuing until 8pm.
    Sunday, "Exotica Sunday" 4-8PM with HipHiPaHulA PLUS DJ Marty Lush of Tikiyaki Orch. fame & fortune!

    Join us please, we are always ready to take you on you Zombies for Best Damn Halloween party EVER!


P.S. Don't go bashin' Trader Sams either, their neighborhood endears it, it's a survivor and I would like to see it remain. We hope to see better and brighter tiki days ahead for Trader Sam's ... Don't give up on it, there is hope, we have proved it.

Tonga Hut Since 1958
12808 Victory Blvd. North Hollywood, Ca.91606

Artists: Jeremy said there's no room to store anything before the show, so bring your artwork to the Tonga Hut between 11am and 3pm on Sunday Oct. 31 to put up the art show. For each piece of art, make a card that has the Title, Medium, artist's name, and price. Vendors need to be set up by 4pm.

"?"-O-Lantern made it through the bisque fire without blowing up or cracking to pieces, so now GROG glazing this bastard and then another firing.

(The light blue is clear glaze. When it's fired, it becomes clear and glassy.)

Not really a Halloween piece so much but it'll have to do.
Painted this for Polynesiac... because he rules.

"Thar' Be The Ruby" acrylic on masonite

Hope you like.
