Here's the evidence: a good time was had by all.

It was great to see a few new TC members out this month. For those who I didn't have time to sit down and chat with, I look forward to doing so in the near future.

Hope you make it back in February.. March.. April...

Thanks as always to AJ, the GM at TV.
It was his idea to do Tabu Tiki Nights, and we're all grateful.

Big mahalos to King Kukulele for making us all laff, to the Barefoot Hawaiians for being terrific as always, and to Dave Krys and Lake Surfer for bringing their Tikis and Elvikis down to the event, and contributing to the raffle. Speaking of the raffle, thanks to BigBro Sven for agreeing to scribble on the BOT hardcover we gave away, and to me( ) for the rest of the prizes!

Special year-end thanks for Surrey Books who provided the Shag calendars we've been dishing out all year for free.

Remember people: no event in January, but we'll be back February 16 with some exciting and fresh new stuff (example: by popular demand, I am working on talking Trader Vics into doing a rotating drink special, a different one each month).

And now, the pix!







The camera has been drinking (not me).

Sing along with the Uke players from the Old Town Scheool of Folk Music








James mixes his two natural habitats: Tiki bars and mixing boards. That's Nels from Tikizone.com on the right.


That's Vintage Deluxe owner Gabrille, and her main man Jimmy Sutton, Chicago's top bass fiddle player. They won the grand raffle prize: a 30" tall tiki from LakeTiki.


Everyone deserves a free Shag now and again.


That's our official Tabu Tiki camera girl Rebecca with King K's date, Hillary.
