PJ, sorry to hear about all that's going on. Was looking forward to being part of the PJ Subway Posse. Take care.

Aloha!
We are running around like a couple of crazy people with all the last minute details for this weekend, but I wanted to address a couple of your questions.

ManoKoa, there are others who have indicated they are going to bring their Kikis on Saturday, and of course kids are welcome. We'll have our little guy in tow for part of the day, but he's only 16 months old, so not much fun for your 5 year old. As for a Maori face piece, if you feel the urge, I'd say do it. I'm not sure there is anything that could be "too much" at Exotica. Who knows, you might want to participate in the best attire contest.

teaKEY, I don't think the entertainers would mind having folks photograph or videotape the event so long as it's for personal use and not any commercial enterprise. If any of the bands were to object (which I doubt) I'm sure you'd honor their wishes.

hala bullhiki, Sorry to have not made this clear on our website, but there are no paper tickets issued, we will have your name at the door for the event. You should have received an email about this a couple of days ago.

We are thrilled to be getting some really great press coverage for Exotica. This past week's Time Out Chicago had a nice piece and there are going to be stories in the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Journal, and a couple of suburban papers. There will also be appearances on morning TV Friday the 8th. The Cocktail Preachers and the Barefoot Hawaiian will appear on NBC channel 5 and King Kukulele will be on nationally syndicated WGN channel 9. So if you are up with your coffee early (or just getting in from the night before) be sure to tune in.

Looking forward to this weekend!
-Amy

Aloha TCers!

This is George from the Windy City Islanders. My Bruddahs Chris, Craig, the Baron, and I are warmed up and ready to get the show kicking and the Zombies and Mai Tai's flowing as we lead off on Saturday at 1pm at Fitzgerald's. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Just curious-at either Hala Kahiki or Fitzgerald's,will there be a place for people to find out the TC'rs who are attending?-ala "The Sting"? Would love to greet folks,but as most people will be in Hawaiian garb,this would not narrow down the pack.

When you see a TC'r you will know.
To point me out, I'll be wearing a red and white THE BUS aloha shirt @ Hala Kahiki. You don't have to call me TURBOgod. TURBO g. will do just fine. Will probably be hanging with Johnny$ and Mrs. $, PoweroftheTiki, ikitnrev & Formikahini. So now you can find 6 of us. Plane leaves in a few hours. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehah

At Hala Kahiki, feel free to buy drinks for the 6ft white guy in a green shirt.

I don't know any of you but I will definitely make an effort to.

It all depends on my busy schedule if I have time to put the maori markings on but in case you are looking, I will be the asian looking one w/ glasses, keiki, and wife nearby.

It might be a little corporate, but I could bring stickers just in case you guys need help ID'ing each other.

I did. As I was told, it's more like a list at the door to make sure you can get in iffin the place fills up. So it's not a "table for 2 at 4:45pm" kinda thing.
