ok, I didnt see any replies to my question, so we booked the dinner and show for just us two. We needed to reserve something, and hopefully we can all still sit together or close to each other, and so on!

I am really excited! But sad that our friend Liz (I Dream Of Tiki) can't go. She met Steve and I for drinks at The Mai Kai recently, and we had a blast! But then on her way home, she was in a car accident. She is fine, thank goodness! But it cost her beaucoup bucks to repair the car and stuff. So she can no longer go. Im so bummed! But still happy to see everyone just the same.

Liz! I will take lots of pics for ya, honey! Love you!

Lenore (and Steve too!)

Sorry I didn't get back with a couple of you this week, but I 've been doing some tiki traveling with some west coasters in advance of the Hawaiian Inn party. The weather is warming up and it looks like it is going to be real nice this weekend.

I've got seating for 20 reserved at Julian's which should be plenty and the Hawaiian Inn has about 40 seats seat aside for our group which should be enough.

I'll post a note on the door of the showroom as to the location of rooms we are using for hospitality purposes. If you don't know what to bring and want to bring something, bring a mug to drink from and a bottle of rum.

Okay, I'm off to Daytona now.
Aloha,
KG

Swanky, Rusty Key and I are leaving in a couple of hours, bringing with us the heads of the vanquished Haole Kats.

Their skills were no match for the power of the Captain's Grog made with REAL Vermont Maple Syrup.

I can't find my sunglasses.

Or my car keys.

See you soon.

OK, still working out the final details, but I'm arriving in Orlando at 6am tomorrow morning. Not sure what time I'll make it to Daytona Beach and the Hawaiian Inn, but it'll be early, I 'll probably take a wee nap and then start roaming the halls singing Hawaiian War Chant at the top of my lungs until I find you.

Wish I could join you for Julian's tonight, have fun. I love you guys, and I can't wait to see you.

OK! Steve and I are leaving our apartment tomorrow morning, first thing. We live in Ft Lauderdale, so it shouldnt take us TOO too long. We will bring RUM! (Can never have enough rum!)

See you soon!

Terrific tiki times abounded at our annual convergence in Daytona beach.

Where can this giddy gal begin???????? I'm basking in the afterglow........

Friday nite at Julian's was simply sublime. We had our own little corner of the Julian's universe under a piece of regal Witco illuminated by the huge tribal shield wall sconces. I think we set a record for how many people could scrunch together at 1 long table without needing birth control.
Julian's expert mixologists provided us perfect MaiTai's and we feasted on their sumptuous fare while luxuriating in quality time with favorite pals.
Vern, Vern, Vern, what can I say but you are a most delightful escort!
Pablus, always a titillating experience to see you, and Rusty, I thoroughly enjoyed swapping stories with ya.
Swanky, you look great and very happy. Good luck with your upcoming plans...all of them.
Lezley, you fox, we really need to spend more time together. Dave's a lucky guy (even without the Witco).......
Geoff/Marian you continue to grow more and more dear to me.
Great outfits Marian and Lezley. We were the bell-bottom-triplets that nite!
Kava King and beautiful Wahine, so good to see you again!! Glad you traveled down!
Sandra/Dan it was way cool to have "the inner circle" with me at out fav restaurant.
Sven and lovely Naomi, I loved sharing this treasure with you.
And everyone else, thanks for a peak party experience!!!

Thank you Geoff, for being such a great host!

What a fun expedition. It was nice to meet, and share the Tiki spirit, with many Floridians near and far.

I'm digging out from under a pile of work today, so I can't post much more than mahalo to one and all for joining our Florida Ohana at the Hawaiian Inn last weekend; especailly Sven, Naomi, Vern, Swanky and Michelle for flying in for the event. Hopefully someone has pictures to share.

We experienced so much tiki culture last week with so many good friends it is almost too much to comprehend. Either that or I'm still suffering from the effects of the Zombie barrel.

I had a great time. Thanks to my gracious host Pablus and Rustiki. Thanks to KG for getting us all together. It was great to see everyone again and for the first time for some. (Okay, maybe I saw you at Hukilau before, but all that's a blur, so it doesn't count.)

I have pictures and video to load up here later this week.

That was INSANE FUN!!!!!!!!!

It was so fantastic! The dinner show, the zombies, the ocean, the stars and brilliant moon, the gorgeous mugs, the architecture of the hotel... but what our favorite part was, of the ENTIRE weekend, was getting to spend time with all of you.

What amazing beautiful people you are. Truly. I couldnt get enough of you. When we were leaving, I looked out the window of the car as we were pulling away that cold morning, and thought to myself, "Wow. I really miss them already!" I felt a little sad. But really happy to have these wonderful memories.

We will post pictures up soon! And Steve had such a fantastic time, that he is thinking about creating his own tikicentral account, so that he can post as well! I am really excited about that!

Guys, we came home to my little uke, and I said "Don't you want to play my uke? Now that I know that you know how to, so well?" His reply was something along the lines of NO, because now that he has played a REAL UKE, nothing else could possibly compare. And he wants one of the real thing! lol! He is hooked!!!!

I can't wait to see everyone again. I miss my tiki family!

Hugs and Tiki Kisses,

Lenore

As most of you know Sven and Naomi came in early and we were able to do quite a bit of touring the week before the Hawaiian Inn luau. We couldn't have seen and experienced as much as we did without help and support from quite a few people.

Because of that I want to extend special mahalos to Sven and Naomi for making the trip in the first place and for being such wonderful traveling companions; Tristan & Bree for meeting us at the Polynesian Resort; Kern & Pia for arranging everything at the Mai-Kai and to Cybertiki and Jo-elle for meeting us for drinks and dinner there as well; Fatuhiva and family for opening their home and showing us their fantastic mug collection; King and Queen NeptuneTiki for letting us stay overnight in the Palace of Witco; to Pablus and Rusty for hosting two nights of partying in their suite, entertaining us with their ukes and especially for mixing up that killer batch of Zombies; and lastly to Wayne & Teauila at the Hawaiian Inn for all of their continuing and gracious hospitality and aloha spirit towards our entire group.

And a most important and loving thank you to my wife Marian for letting me run around the state for a week while she handled things at home, and for generally being the indulgent and wonderful spouse that she is. Thanks honey!
KG

I'm so glad I could make it to the 2nd (annual, right??) Hawaiian Inn gathering, it was a wonderful time. Mahalo to everyone who made it happen, especially Kailuageoff for organizing it, and Pablus & Rusty Key for making us all feel so welcome (and for letting me play uke with you guys!). It was a marvelous time.

Pics are here:

The Zombie Barrel (Geoff made the barrel, with the help of Marion's nail polish--note the pearlescent finish):



Our room hosts & entertainers, Rusty Key & pablus:


Geoff found a great Headhunter statue when out thrifting that day, it was anotomically correct!:



Now down to the black-lit showroom, and its volcano:


Kava King & Queen enjoy a volcano bowl:


Just a small part of our large group, which took up a few long tables:


My dress glowed!:


Out in the lobby after the show, the wahines & the kanes lined up:



And Sven repeated my pose from last year (kinda) and then molested Tiki Bree:



The party then moved down to the beach:





And finally wrapped up back at pablus & Rusty Key's room:


The next day on our way to the airport in Orlando, Sven (bigbrotiki), Naomi, Vern (itiknrev) and I made a pitstop at Waitiki, note the wallpaper here in the mens' room:
