It's time for a party at Johnnie Velour's. Me and my next door neighbors are having our annual End of Summer Party (a bit late). Food, booze, what more do you need? How 'bout a Gilligan's Island theme. I know Maxton did that in Portland so I stole, I mean borrowed, the idea!

Lord and Lady Velour know how to throw a party. Johnnie is quite the accomplished mixologist, too.

I was going to make JohnnieVelour's party which is aka: the "Kmon Iwana Leiuu" Party but the timing sucks as it's my annual get together with the old high school bro's and a keg of beer in Big Bear! My weekend will be very un-tiki... but you guys have to go as JohnnieVelour's tiki bar is insane!! I've only seen photos but he's gone over the edge!

Why does all this cool stuff happen when I'm out of town!?!?!? First the Tiki Bash, now Johnnie Velours and Baxdog's. Y'all are against me, I know it! But seriously folks, Mr. Velour's bar is exquisite, and his reputation as a master cocktailer is well deserved. If I weren't up to my opu in vino, I'd be down in Playa delRey tippling with the "in" crowd. Have fun and hoist a few for me!

I'm looking forward to this. Johny's bar, cocktails, Centralites, all that is good in life. I heard a rumour that The Jab might be their. Shelley and I can't wait.

I would love to go, but I will be in L.A. the following weekend (the 19th. and 20th.). I usually plan my jaunts well in advance so I can get low fares ($60 RT Oakland to Burbank!) so it's hard to coordinate with all these events and parties lately.

For anyone interested, I am almost near the Purple Orchid. Its on the other side of the airport in El Segundo. This is the bar that has wallpapered their bathrooms with the pages of The Book.

Purple Orchid
221 Richmond St.
ElSegundo 90245

The major cross streets are Grand and Main. 1 block west of Grand, make a left on Richmond.

A 3 hour cruise. So a 3 hour party 6-9. Thats it.

Our partys run late so you have nothing to wory about.

Oh, I don't know Johnnie. Cherry is a crazy jet-setting kinda gal who's average bedtime is dawn.

Lord and Lady,
You guys really know how the tiki gets down.
Great drinks, even my un-leaded version!
The bar is ultra-cool, I sat from the stairs and could not stop those jealous feelings. The grand stand seating (with full TIKI torch line up) in the back was a great place to talk to the TC crowd.
And let's have a word about that P I N K bathroom, pink has never been so pink, right down to what you can drink. And if the color pink had a smell, just a whiff and you could tell.
Thank you so much for the party!

PS. Robin don't forget the Chinese burro-eatoes

Thanks again to Johnny (and Lady) Velour for throwing a fine shindig. We got there a bit late, but there was still drinks a flowing and fine conversation to be had by all. The tiki bar was great and I hope that Johnny posts a how-to on those fine bamboo lights.

Thank you, everyone.
I had a great time having you all over at my pad and pouring you drinks. I do wish I could have chatted out with everybody a bit more, but hey, gotta keep the booze flowing for the thirsty masses.

Being behind the bar was great. I usually give the job to Lady Velour, a liquor pouring professional, while I'm on the grill. This time it was all me. I got a kick out of people asking me if I had set up the bar and all the tiki mugs just for the party.

I'll post pics as soon as I get them, I know Lady V was clicking a camera durring the night.

The next morning my head felt like a pineapple with a dog busting out of it.

See you at theBaxdogs!
