I could see if it was me or Flounder they threw out... we're kind of... magnets for that sort of thing.
We just met him the night of the King's performance and what a friendly, engaging gentleman.
Angela was just repeating "Oh My God" over and over again as I read this story to her.
"After all, it IS Orlando," was her final comment on it.
I'll say this: I personally dropped $200 bucks in there on Thursday and that's $200 I'll just spend on more Joe Vitale mugs and premium rums and long distance phone calls to my Orlando Ohana to come on over for drinks and music.
I really can sing and play, Joe, I promise... and the Lagoon Lounge (™AlnShelly Productions) is ALWAYS available for a REAL Tiki Time. Bring your swimsuits. Hot Lava, warm up that fluke.
(Plus we could probably pitch in and get the Haole Cats to come over.)
Bye Bye Waitiki.
Hope the Justin TImberlake and Brittany Spears clones with 22 bucks to spend are just the crowd you were looking for. Cause you got 'em.

Okay guys here's the deal....... I spoke with the owner of WAITIKI today and he was FURIOUS about the way his staff acted. I also have gotten phone calls from the bar manager apologizing for what happened. I think it may be unfair to hold the whole bar responsible for what a few of thier bonehead employees are up to. The owner of this place is a great guy, and he assured that he will do all he can to make sure that his customers are treated with respect.
Everyone is right about the location of the bar. That's just the crowd it attracts. Weekends are extremely crowded, and there is a ton of security out there. So I guess you should sort of expect that kind of thing??
It was real cool to see and meet a bunch of you guys down there.
I really do believe you can play Pablus....

i slithered down to orlando friday night to check out the waitiki. i belli di waikiki lit up the stage and after half-a-dozen mai tai's the stage wasn't the only thing that was lit!
check out some photos http://www.troikastudio.com/hukilau/waitiki.html
i can see what you guys mean about the lack of tiki appreciation among the patrons though. but you can't expect much else on a friday night in o-town...
it was good talking with you tweedtone, can't wait to see you guys on stage again!
