Our dear friend, Weird Uncle Tiki, has skipped town. He's moved to Napa Valley, and will no longer be joining us on the legendary Wednesday nights at Tiki-Ti.

Or... will he?

We know Weird Unc won't be able to stay away for long. I'd like to propose an informal pool to guess when Weird Unc will again appear at Tiki-Ti on a Wednesday night.

Since we need witnesses for this to work, if Weird Unc reappears on another night, it won't count. This pool will continue until he shows up on a Wednesday.

Also, since his cousins Iuka Grogg and Rodd Grogg look so damned much like him, it'll count if they show, too.

Slots will be segregated by hour (6,7,8,9,10,11,12), so each Wednesday has seven slots, and can be claimed by seven different people.

To join in the pool, do the following:


  • Scan the earlier posts to note what slots have already been taken
  • State the month, date and year of the Wednesday you claim (can be any Wednesday in the future)
  • State the hour slot you claim (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12)


Select and type very carefully, no changing your claim! If your post has been edited, your slot is forfeited and someone else can then claim it. You may only stake one claim.

The clock at Tiki-Ti will be used as the reference.

To keep it simple, and allow as many people to participate as possible, participants won't put in money, and the winner will get nothing but bragging rights. (Though perhaps if you participate in the pool and lose, it would be mighty keen of you to be willing to buy the winner a drink the next time you see them.)

GAME ON!

Hint: read up this year's wine grape harvest. Chances are he won't be back until it's over.

Weird Uncle Tiki is ultra-kooky busy stomping on grapes and has not seen this thread. I've told him about this and he's really flattered and excited that everyone's wagering on his return. He's promised not to look at this thread because he wants to be fair to all the participants and he loves a fun surprise. He's also offered a prize! If the winner of the pool is present when he makes his next Wednesday appearance at Tiki Ti, the winner will receive a delicious frosty tropical cocktail on his tab! So, show up and keep an eye out!

This just in: If the winner of the contest is not present when Weird Unc shows up, Iuka Grogg has promised to send a genuine Chichiwan & Miehana designed 3-color Maikai Gents sticker! Hey! Weird Unc says he'll send a congratulatory e-mail, too. So, there you have it. Get your bets in and keep your eyes on Tiki Ti!

Ah, but Friday was a Friday, and not a Wednesday, and thus didn't count.

There are plenty of slots still available (remember, up to seven different people can lay claim to a single Wednesday, because each slot only lasts an hour), but the clock is ticking down to Weird Unc's inevitable Wednesday return. You don't have to be a local to play along... all you need is to have the divining power of tiki on your side....

"Of course I know last night wasn't a Wednesday! I know that!"

(I'm paraphrasing someone)

But I heard he was there. That's all!
