Kailuageoff,

You should come back to Tucson to check out how that paint job is holding up, maybe around April 22nd.

I can't guarantee hookers though.

Mahalo,
I would love to come to Tucson, but my travel funds are committed until next year. I wish I had been into tiki when I lived in there, but after growing up in Hawaii I thought Polynesian-themed businesses in the desert were simply ridiculous and paid them no attention. What a fool I was. When I was in the Southwest, I mostly listened to the Grateful Dead, drank Tequila and rolled my own cigarettes...

Of course now my tastes are much more sophisticated. I mostly listen to vintage Hawaiian music, drink rum and smoke cigars.

I do remember there being a big Moai on Speedway in front of a mini-golf or something, and may have passed by the Kon-Tiki but am not sure. There also was a motel that was Polynesian-themed that I remember. It is really cool that you guys are staying at The Smugglers Inn for this party. What a weird coincidence. Have fun and take pictures!
KG

I've been holding back on my review of the Kon-Tiki in Tucson for a little over a month, but I guess I'll go ahead and post it. Basically it comes in 3 parts. Part I: Tucson is actually a pretty cool city! I was pretty surprised that I liked it so much, but it was actually a pleasant place. Part II: The people at Kon-Tiki were really great. Even the non-tiki loving girl I went with remarked about how friendly everyone was. The food was pretty good too, I had the Teriyaki burger, and would probably head back to Kon-Tiki just to repeat the burger. Part III: The ambiance was wonderful. After about 5 minutes I was relaxed enough to really kick back and enjoy myself. The rum might have helped a bit...but the age of the place was definitely not obvious (not alot of dust or chipped paint that I noticed, at least.) I really wish I could head out for the grand-reopening but alas, limited funds and limited travel time mean limited options. All in all, I'd say a good solid 2 thumbs up from me .

Looks like today will find me arriving Tucson at about 5:00pm. I'm gonna check-in to my hotel, check TC, relax a bit, and then head to the Kon Tiki (my first visit) at about 6:30pm tonight. I can't stay too late as I have work to do, but if anyone wants to meet up for a quick Mai Tai...look for the old guy with the black receding hair turning silver on the sides, in the Mickey Mouse aloha shirt (red base color).

Aloha!

*Above predicated on no traffic difficulties getting there (I'm driving...leaving Lordsburg, NM in about an hour).

Just arrived beautiful downtown Tucson and am checked into the Sheraton, which looks pretty close to the Kon Tiki. Hope to meet my first Tiki Centralite tonight, but if not (I know only a few hours is not much advance notice)...I'll hoist some sort of rum libation to 'ya all anyway. Been a rough and long day. I could use a bit of tropical calm and a refreshing drink (or two) to take the edge off! That's 6:30pm tonight, at the Kon Tiki...if anyone is around.

(Thinking about hitting Trader Vic's in Scottsdale tomorrow night too. Gotta break up the long drive back to SoCal, right?)

Had a wonderful evening at Kon Tiki. Great tiki bar! What a blast to the past and a throw-back to how they don't make 'em anymore. Had one minor issue with the service. But otherwise...a great evening and met some great folks there. Problem right now is my fingers are a bit too numb to type with (never mind the condition of my gray cells)...so my full review will have to wait. Say goodnight, Gracie.
