They will definitely be available at the show, but you may want to try and get there earlier in the evening.

Hey,

What's the deal with the raffle tix? The day I tried to get 'em, they were not yet available and now I might not get to that side of town again for a while.

Will they be sold at the show as well? or are they advance only?

Heres a pic of the bar I built for the event. The restaurant didn't have an actual bar to serve drinks from, so I put this together for them. It was for sale, but it was so packed with drinkers I don't think anyone even knew about it:

It was nice to finally meet some of you. I had great time even though I had to leave early & my wife couldn't make it and to top it off most of my pics didn't turn out. Great to see such a large crowd. Perhaps it'll inspire further work on Chin Tiki (?)
I'll try to post what few pics did turn out soon.

Mattfink I think you should bring that bar to Wisconsin for the Tiki Pa'ina event to try and sell it, or at least we can try to have as much fun drinking from it as the Motor City crowd. Sorry I missed such a good time.

Hey FZ,
Thanx for posting pics! The place was really packed on Saturday and it was hard to check out the Decor. Chin's is a really cool place with a lot of fantastic Tiki artifacts. We had a great time.

Dave & Coalbe

Mattfink~ Dude the pictures rock, and man I am really bummed even more now that I did not make it. Can you tell me how to get a hold of some of these artists that are in the pictures? 1. I want them for the WI. event and 2. I wanna buy some of their stuff!
It looks like you guys did a great job, now the pressure is on me to come through with a good event, jeez.

T.T.,

Len at
www.speedcult.com is the guy who did the metal stuff.

Jimi Litwalk and Jeff Shea both work out of Electric Superstition Tattoo in Royal Oak:

Mark from Lucky Monkey Tattoo in Ann Arbor did the Hula-Fink painting:

Dave Krys of DSK designs did the lamps:

http://www.dskdesigns.com/

Jimmy Robinson did the Witco style bar (he's here lurking on T.C. somewhere).

Hope this will help you out a bit. There were more artists there, but that is all I can think of off the top of my head.

Matt

Man! Chin's was great!!! I was in detroit for a fellow DEADBEATS' wedding and managed to get a few striping pieces done in time for the show...the even sold! The skateboard was painted by Jeff Shea and the 3 paintings next to the skateboard were painted by Jime' Litwalk. Had a really good time. If I can get some pics from Jime', I'll post some of them (my digital's card was full...damn!) nice job on the show, Nancy and Jime'! Anyways...good to see some of ya'll and maybe next time I can meet some more of you.
