Another great weekend. It will take all week to recover. Each year I wonder how it can get any better, but Rory makes it happen. The entertainment line-up was awesome. The hotel staff was awesome too. A big shout out to bigTikiDude too.

It started out fun and just got more and more spectacular. Thursday night hanging with Rory and everyone else and "sipping" Kelly's amazing rum barrels.



The eyes have it!

What a great week end! Thank you Rory for the fun, the bands and the organization. Also thanks to Sunshine Tiki for organizing the room crawl. It was great to have your support for our first room crawl hosting at Tiki Caliente. I am posting the recipe for the "eye of the Moai" under the room crawl forum for those interested.

Candidly Val and I are still in recovery mode from the weekend. That being said, I'd like to thank Rory for another very fun tiki weekender. We had a hot poolside room, hosted another crawl stop, enjoyed awesome music, shopped, and most importantly spent time with friends. The food situation at the hotel was much improved this year as well.

In addition to Rory: thanks to ZTL for hosting the crawl, Crazy Al as the Tiki Caliente MC, BigTikiDude for tireless DJ duties, the bands that played all weekend, and our fellow attendees for making Caliente what it is. I had a great time up to the point where I passed out Sunday night near the pool due to exhaustion and even that was kinda relaxing.

Loved the Ding Dong Devils Friday night lobby set, as well as The Smokin' Menehunes Sunday afternoon sets. Every band was great in fact; each had their own highlights.

Pictures to come,

Kevin

Rory, great job, kudos sir.
Thanks to all for the shout outs,(truly appreciated)
And thanks for the pics, so I can see what I missed.

I hate to complain, but it was still to friggin hot.
It was 74 in HB today and I was sweating.
Hopefully the diet will help with dealing with the heat.

Good to see some familiar faces.
And great to see so many new ones.

My favorite moments were the 2 hip hop chicks asking when
I was gonna start scratching on the turntable.
And the old guy in motorcycle crash gear, asking me to stop
Playing Lawrence welk music, and put on some punk.
8-o

Jeff btd

Rory, Fantastic line-up line-up of bands and vendors.
Great entertainment value.



Favorite moment was Crazy Al scatting with Sonny Moon.




I hope Chris puts this on Lost in Paradise.
