What a great event last night! I love the Bahooka!
Thanks to Nick for having The Hula Girls play. We tried some brand new songs for the first time.... Some worked and some (ahem) could use a little work. But nonetheless, we had a blast!

I picked up a Bahooka mug and Dinah got the new BOT mug for us. That drink was amazing!
I can't wait to go through the new issue of Tiki Magazine...

Wow, what a fun night! Got the BOT mug and finally the Bahooka mug, the new issue of Tiki Magazine (thanks mucho for the Ding Dong Devils review!), heard some great Hula Girls music (with some great dancing from Dinah and Judy), saw a lot of great friends, met some fine folks I didn't previously know, basked in the glory of Joe Banks and Marty Lush's stellar jackets, saw the finished Tikiyaki van, got to watch Rufus the 35 year old fish eat several carrots, bask in the general splendor of Bahooka, enjoyed a refreshing Tiki Reviver (and a few of something or other), and I don't remember what else!

Now I need a Monday Back at Work Reviver!

Hey this wasn't just the 10 year anniversary for BOT but 2011 is the 20th anniversary for the inspiration for BOT.

And at the Bahooka no less. It came full circle yesterday.

In Rosemead, CA !!

Which booth was the Bigbro sitting in on that eventful day in 1991 ??

Wheeeew!!
What a night.
I'm still beat, and need to get to work today, so I can take Friday off for Mojave Oasis.
I was totally surprised at the turnout for a Sunday too.
But Good stuff like New Tiki Mag, Book of Tiki Mug, and
and great venders and bands etc...
made for a really fun event,
that people realized they needed to be at.

Kudos to Nick, and all,
for a Great event.

Jeff(btd)

John-O, you are my living conscience. THAT fact totally had slipped my mind! Too much Tiki in this ol' brain to remember. Oh jeez.... we So Cal Tikiphiles are so jaded, taking our classic Tiki temples all over the place for granted, we forget our OWN history with them.

Here's the historic document that proves it:
Flyer #5 of the L.A. Cacaphony Society (an off-spring of the Church of the Subgenius)





Yes it was at Bahooka (I cannot remember the booth, it was somewhere down to the right past the bar, I think..) where I sat with 8 -10 professed Tiki fans, and realized I knew more about this than anyone, and that I had to do the book.

Awesome Party! My Girlfriend and I had a blast. GROG: the mug is sitting nice among the Special(autographed) Tiki mugs. The Salt And Pepper Shakers will be filled tonight. The New Issue of TIKI Magazine is great! The Reviver Was GREAT (3 down the hatch+ 2 Zombies) The Hula Girls were Great! BIG Tiki Dude Killed! we had to leave early... 5a.m. wake-up call + I was a little Smashed! Thanks to everyone involved in putting that together.

I want to a ask for a round of applause for Kelly, for doing such a stellar job at mixing Jeff Berry's Tiki Reviver cocktail. As usual, the effects of a good libation come to play later in the evening, when everybody is under its influence: I saw a lot of smiling, happy faces, and no one wanted to leave. Well, the Hula Girls (and the guys) had something to do with that, too.

Besides Kelly,

I must also thank Moritz, for designing such an iconic Tiki that even ten years later it is a unique, instantly recognizable image.

I must thank Holden for helping us getting the mug in the perfect shape that it is now in. May it be a steady bestseller for Tiki Farm.

I must thank Jeff Berry for designing such a yummy, exciting, cocktail - you were right about the name!

I must thank the Bahooka for having stayed the same for so many years! Don't change!

I must thank Nick for having us take part in his release party, and for keeping such a great magazine running.

And I wanna thank the Hula guys'n'girls and Big Tiki Dude for providing excellent musical entertainment, and all the artists who brought their newest creations to the party. MY favorite mug among the many great ones was actually this one:

Oh, and of course I must thank my loving wife Naomi for playing my lovely sales assistant once again. Couldn't have signed that many mugs without you! (Phew, just in time!)

Sven,

Congratulations on a great looking and successful event, I was bummed that I could not get away from Santa Barbara to attend.

Any chance of picking up one of the BOT Mugs this weekend at Mojave?
