..looks like a great effort taking place...ya know, if all of us donated one tiki item, whatever we could spare, to places like these to help decorate them, we would never have to sit around in a lame tiki bar ever again!! ..think of it, we all have too much tiki crap to begin with, so we donate a mask here, or some mugs there...perhaps one of your own creations as an artist to help jazz up the walls....you could even write it off on your taxes as a donated item...all this talk about supporting a scene is simply that...talk!! I'm up for it.....i'm sending out some lamps....

I think that's a great idea. Forbidden Island will be donating an unused decor item.

Tonga Tom has had a face lift!!And along with new landscaping (the jasmine will bloom in July), a new paint job and our new neon cocktail sign, the Tonga Hut is on its way to ushering in a new era for tiki lovers in the Valley!!

Much thanks to Greg McKinney for all his hard work with the interior and exterior and to Glenn Aldridge at Spic & Span Fountain Cleaning.

There's more new music in the jukebox including exotica, vintage jazz and loungcore!!

Hope to see you soon!

Ana & Jeremy



Excellent tiki urban renewal!

I just joined Tiki Central and I wanted to say Howdy to everyone and invit them to come on down to the Tonga Hut. I started bartending there about 4 months ago and have been excited to see the gradual changes. When I first started I felt like my living room was more Tiki than the Tonga Hut but Jeremy and Ana have taken great strides to change all that! The best part is that THE FOUNTAIN IS RUNNING!!! and it looks great. I would like to invite all the Tiki Central members in the area to come down and visit me on any Wednesday night from 6-2. I play old B movies on the TV all night long and there's always lounge and exotica playing until you want to hear something in the jukebox. As a special "Hello" let me know that you're from Tiki Central and receive $1 off anything on our special tropical menu. Or ask me for my special drink, a Bettie Page Martini. And if you would like to be a "guest bartender" bring me a reicipe for one of your favorite tropical drinks and I'll do my best to create it for you! Hope to see you many of you there in the very near future!

I finally got a chance to go to the Tonga Hut last night. I highly recommend the place. Nicole the bartender made the best rum filled drinks in different tiki mugs. When the owners called in and found out we were TC people they bought us free drinks. The music was exotica great. The decor was great. I saw a Kirby painting on the wall as well.We met some nice people there also. For what it's worth this is one of the last remaining true tiki bars around in Southern California. I think we should support it and keep it going. Maybe we should organize a get together for all TCers to see this place and all the changes the owners have made here. I think the place needs more recognition from us since we want to see original tiki bars have staying power.

Megan it was nice meeting you. We had a blast, hope to see you soon again. The drinks were just great, and the music was "exotica" out of this world.

Thanks to all of you that came out Wednesday. It was great to meet you and I'm glad you liked the drinks! Hope you'll all come back soon! I'm working again tonight and would love to see lots of you there. It really makes the place feel more fun to have people who love tiki and the culture in there drinking out of tiki heads!

Did somebody say a TC Party at the Tonga Hut?!?! Awesome, we'd love to have you!! How about Saturday, July 1, 2006 from 9pm-2am? We'll have drink specials, we'll rent the dj equipment if anyone wants to volunteer to move the crowd, and I (Ana) will make pigs-in-a-blanket. Tell all your friends!!!

By the way, we changed our business hours to 4pm-2am in an effort to make the place more inviting to a wider audience (how's that for pc)so our regulars are mad at us. Having TCers here would be awesome. We're doing everything we can to improve the place and keep tiki alive in the Valley. We hope you like what you see when you come to the party on July 1st.

See you then,

Ana & Jeremy
