Thanks for the offer, Flange, but I think we have a grip on it. The set-up is pretty minimal. Feel free to stop by ealier than the 'official' start time of 7:00... Vic's is open for Happy Hour at 5:00.

Wow, I know which night I will be there! Will be good to see the guy that screwed me for $50. OH, and I will make sure to bring friends too! They might like to meet Dave Krys also.

Hi Kelley

With all respect, please:
In the future, I'd be obliged if you vented your tensions with other people elsewhere. We are trying to keep this event, like all Tiki events, as positive, upbeat gatherings for the 'ohana.
I'm sorry that you had a problem with Dave, but you have his email address and phone number, so please take it up with him off of the forum (or at the very least, off of this thread), and particularly not at Trader Vic's.
Thanks, bro.
And... since he isn't showing his product *tonight*, jump in the car and come on down. We'd love to have you at the event.

First sorry James I apologize for bringing my off forum frustration with Dave Krys and what he did here, as a note I have tried to contact him and all attempts have gone unreturned. But as always I wish you continued success tonight, I hope to have a more reliable car maybe soon and then I can finally show up and support you, EsQui, Dave and everyone else that is there trying to make it a wonderful time for people to come see.

Hala - Dave K tells me that he is planning to bring a bunch to the November 17 event... unless Tiki Toa murders him first (hahaha - just a joke there, Kelly!). We have the Cocktail Preachers confirmed for November 17, and as of yesterday, King Kukulele has confirmed for December 15! Hope you can make it out.
