Damn, Holden, if I'd known you'd be there....that might have gotten me off my A.
As it was, it was so firmly planted at the Tiki Ti, it didn't wanna move:

For the first time ever, my Buick found the spot right in front of the door, I could see it from where I was sitting thru the open door. It was just too cozy, sitting right at the bar, in the middle, left of me my pals Kevin and Jody, and to my right lovely Humuhumu and her girlfriend from Seattle. Who could part from such company?
The Lapu Lapu/Missionairy's Downfall/Stealth also had something to do with the fact that, to my great regret, I did not make it to this performance.

The Tiki News night at Shag with a Twist was so much fun. We were thrilled that we were able to offer the discount for the evening and everything turned out so well.

The show was entertaining - I LOVED the go go dancers the best. I am now obsessed with getting pointy bras for The Devil-Ettes! I agree with other posts that you do not need to be a SHAG fan to enjoy the show – it really had so many amazing elements to it (tiki, go go, mystery...). I only hope they bring it to SF at some point.

For those going to a future show. They now have two bars: martini bar and a tiki bar. They also have a few food options as well as a café. Of course, if you are a big SHAG fan you should bring some money to purchase a t-shirt from the show. They have quite a few options... I forgot to check out how much they were though.

As for places to eat downtown I would like to recommend Clifton’s Cafeteria. Ok, this is not a fancy place (it is a cafeteria) but it is such an experience for those that like old-school style eating.

Hey Sven, we were wondering where you were that evening! Oh well, I guess you've already seen the show, but it was even more fun with the Tiki News night happening. I was very impressed by the show and especially the flawless choreography and dancing. I agree with Baby Doe. I think all go-go dancers should have extra pointy bras!

It must be really great for Shag to experience having his two-dimensional visions come to life in such a grand manner. Did I mention the music was really great too? Well it was.

I tried the "Celestial Martini" made with plum wine at the martini bar . A bit sweet, but it did match what I was wearing (and isn't that the really important thing?!)

Anyway, like Bamboo Ben already said, "Go!"

I chatted with Cindy earlier in an email and when she told me about the Tiki Central discount I asked her to post here. I want to thank her and the entire production for offering a discount to some of Shag's biggest fans. Mahalo!

It is a great show! What a trip it would be: Tiki Ti, Bahooka, Sam's, Lucky Tiki, etc and the SWAT show. Last I checked it runs until June 11.

Shag is coming Friday April 15. We are making a dvd of the show. He was happy to let Tiki Central know.

Dang! I wish I would have read this before I reserved my tix for the 23rd. Oh well, at least I get to see the show!

Wow! I loved this show! Loved the "operation" the Hullabaloo dancers and all the characters. Those who are familiar with Shag's paintings will recognize the characters immediately!

Tiki Matt & Ben, the bars were amazing! So much better in person than the photos show.

My friend wanted to go to Tiki Ti afterwards. I'd never been so I was anxious... bad idea. We opened the door to see sardines nicely packed in their own juices. The nice woman at the door told us we were number 1 & 2 in line. We stood outside (along with 20 other people who joined us) in the rain for 20 minutes before deciding we should just come back one afternoon. Too many happy campers in there!

The LA Weekly just came out with their review of 'Shag With a Twist.'

Thumbs up line - "His droll tableaux of jet-setting swingers and wolf-headed Lotharios don’t merely replicate the visual tropes of the early, pre-lysergic 1960s, they authentically reflect that period’s hedonistic hubris and embrace of the cool."

Thumbs down line - "..... even though retro has become such a given in the world of fashion and entertainment, it remains a sterile construct, an altar of imitation and mugging."

The full review can be seen here -

Since we haven't seen it yet, and tomorrow is the last day, and it's half price tickets if you mention "tiki news" at the box office, Krustiki and I are planning on going to see it tomorrow. Anyone else going to be there?
