Did anyone get pictures of the sign with snow on it during Tucson's recent storm?

Nice photos.
The restoration looks great, yet the integrity remains.

I was in Tucson this past Monday, and had lunch (and drinks) at the Kon Tiki. The place looks and feels fantastic. Last time I was there was a few years ago, well before any updates were done. I liked what the place represented at that time, but didn't really feel comfortable there. Now, everything looks, smells, and feels great.

I was able to meet with Louie, the manager... GREAT GUY!!! We chatted a bit about the new stuff, but he pointed out most of the decor was already there, just given updated surroundings and a little face lift. Bamboo Ben's work really made the place shine again.

Also, Louie has a bunch of the Re-dedication Party mugs designed by Doug Horne!!! They are NOT sold out!!! They come with a COA and the pendant, and sell for $25. I purchased 2 of them, since I loved the design so much. Louie indicated the web site will be updated in a few weeks, so the mugs can be purchased via the internet. But for now, you can contact the Kon Tiki directly. WARNING: Louie wants to sell to Tiki Central members who want to purchase for themselves... NO EBAY DEALERS!! These are special mugs to commemorate the RE-opening of this fantastic place. Let's keep the mana these mugs were created with.

Fantastic job Louie and BBen!! Try the Monkey on a Stick!!!

Stiki tiki,
Louie indicated that the website and his email were being worked on. He said contacting him by phone would probably be the best, until email is back up. I got the impression it would be a couple of weeks before his site was complete.

Done...wish I had time to replace a few hundred other Shutterfly pics in other posts. For more of Kon Tiki, see also:
http://www.thelope.com/2005/05/kon-tiki.html and http://www.thelope.com/2006/04/kon-tiki-party.html

I'll be in Arizona next month and hope to cart some relatives to Tucson - Kon Tiki calls to me like a chorus of grinning, wooden, mid-century homing beacons. Of course, I'll shoot more because I just don't know when to stop.

My sister (Kristiki) and I were in Phoenix/Scottsdale/Chandler this past week visiting family, and we always make time for a trip to Kon Tiki when we're in AZ! There were some really nice folks at the bar who gave us napkin roses that they'd made for us. If you're reading this and you were one of those people, thank you!

Here we are:



I'm loving the mug and I picked up the scorpion bowl, too!

Distressing!! I was at the Kon Tiki recently for the Les Baxter/Drasnin show at the U of A and noticed that the big tiki outside of the Kon Tiki looked like it had ben vandalized with white pray paint. Is that the case? Anyone notice this? If so, its really sad...sad indeed.
