I just spoke with Don Nelson the bar manager at Foundation and founder of The Exotics and The Nelsonics... Tiki Tuesdays are rocking at Foundation! The bar continues it's transformation into a tiki lounge and now features tiki mugs that you can keep after you finish your drink. Don says that he tries to feature a different mug every week that keeps 'em coming. Complete tiki transformation continues through the winter with newly tikified men's room and dj area.

I will be appearing next Tuesday night from 9 pm until close with a wide assortment of tiki stuff. (Then it is off to Trader Vic's Wednesday night!)
I'll have a full report afterwards and some pictures of Foundation posted up here. Don also said that business has more than doubled since the tiki transformation. Milwaukee may have a tiki destination finally...

When I went to Foundation after your art show a few months ago (at the Art Walk where I had a great time but failed to find you!), I was pleased with the Tikiness creeping ever more steadily into the Foundation. I got to keep my Lono mug (from Dynasty). You can never have enough of those...

I have to pick up King Kukulele from the airport this Tuesday, but I may have to drive up to Milwaukee the following week.

Will you be there then too?

PS - bring some substantial Tikis to Tabu Tiki Nights this month - the crowd is expected to be the biggest ever!

Stoked about next week! Two tiki events!

James... I'm hoping the response is good at Foundation next Tuesday and that will keep me coming consistantly... I will definately show up the Tuesday after if you come up... I could give you a tour of my tiki carving studio before hand... I'm only 5 minutes from Foundation...

Really looking forward to Vic's next week... and I too am anticipating a big crowd... hopefully in a mood to buy tiki! See if you can get a little extra room from A.J. and I'll double my inventory that I bring...

Just consulted my schedule... I don't have anything important going on Wednesday the 22nd, so count me in for Foundation on Tuesday the 21st.

If any other Chicago TCers want a ride, drop me a PM. Expect side-trips to Mars Cheese Castle, At Random, Leon's Custard, Tip Top Atomic Shop, that huge all-50s antique mall, and Lake Surfer's place!

Wow... thanks to all those who made purchases at Tabu Tiki Night... I have to get busy and get some more tikis carved for my show on the 21st! I will be at Foundation again that night with more tiki goodies for sale... Foundation has a good start as a tiki bar and things can only get better!
