Okay, here they are... I haven't taken time to delete out the really, really crappy ones, so you'll have to sift a bit to find the only-slightly-crappy ones.
Video to come.

Your friend, and mine, weirduncletiki suggested that this would be the best way to get a message to the to the fellow Tiki occupants of Amtrak car #6.
So to cynfulcynner, Humuhumu, martiki, mrsmiley, the drunken hat, thejab, tikicleen, Ed, and Rebecca I say, “Mahalo nui loa” for the good times and the assistance navigating over under around and through Reno.
It just hit me yesterday that I had a staggering amount of booze on this trip. I guess that was precisely the point. No wonder I’m so sprawled out on the couch in the photos at The Peppermill.
Now, in light of our drinking (and dining) experiences at the hotel, I’ll leave you with these slightly bent Hawaiian phrases from Keola Beamer’s web page:
These really nice napkins seem to match my underclothing.
Ku maika'i keia mau kawele pepa i ke 'ano o ko'u 'a'ahu palema'i.
This Merlot is an ungrateful bitch.
He kanapapiki mahalo 'ole keia mea inu Merlot ia'u.
Waiter, my papaya has been previously fondled.
E ke kuene, ua milimili 'e 'ia neia mikana!
The busboy has cursed me and I am ashamed.
Ua ho'ohalahala 'ia mai nei au na ke kuene, a hilahila ihola au.

Aloha, High Roller! Welcome to Tiki Central. Stick around, enjoy the company, have a few drinks (just what you nedd, eh?). Good to see you in Reno and now here on TC.

I went to Trader Dick's in Reno on Saturday with a friend and thought it was cool. Didn't some folks say it was run down and stinky? Maybe they have fixed it up but I didn't notice any bad smells. I also thought it was a great deal (compared to Trader Vics prices) that tropical drinks were around $5 and for $2-3 extra you get to keep the mug.
It was very relaxing hanging out there over a drink and listening to the Hawaiian music.
