Trying to describe everything my senses experienced yesterday has been totally useless.
The only description I have been able to scrape up is ...perfectly perfect perfection... I'm still trying to absorb it all in my head.
Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home and generous hospitality with us.
We are not worthy

What a wonderful time we had. Thanks to everyone who made it to our opening party.
Special thanks to Mr & Mrs BongoFury for all their help with setting up and cleaning up. That girl is a cleaning machine.

Thanks to everyone who brought gifts, food and beverages. They were all much appreciated.

Mahalo to ModMana, MonkeyMan & Kick the Reverb for guest bartending. The drinks were fabulous as always.

Big thanks to Pablus for the special effort in getting us some musical entertainment for the evening. He went far and above the call of duty on this one. The CD was GREAT!! Hope one day we'll be lucky enough to have him here live.

Here's a link to our album. Hope we can do it again soon.

Oh man,
What a party!
We're still recovering...I hadn't look at pictures of the place before hand, because I wanted to be surprised...and boy was I!
The place looks awsome, and the bar is a dream to work at. It was nice meeting the old friends, and making new ones.
Thanks to Ric & Moki, and thanks to MonkeyMan and the ModManas (yes-Rich was not working alone at the bar). Special thanks to Monekyman for assisting me during my shift. Pablus - I got to hear your cd up close while working at the bar, and it was the perfect music for the job. Thanks for recording it and overnighting it! I'd also like to thank the partcicpants of the XP#2 / Xp#2A taste test.
Last but not least, I'd like to appologize for my late-night flame burger adventures.

What fabulous hosts! That was a fantastic party! Great guest bartending and everyone brought yummy food (Mrs. Fury brought over 6 pounds of Hawaiian Meatballs......gone)! We took Amtrak's Surfliner Train from here in Ventura County down to San Diego. Very comfortable and stress free travel on a holiday weekend, would do that again, maybe to San Francisco next time. Thanks to OnaTiki and Moki for accomodations and shuttling us to and from the train station. You must see their Polynesian Paradise. It should give everyone hope that no matter what your home/yard looks like, it can be transformed into something special. The quality of their efforts made us feel like we were at a nice resort in the islands. A 5 star recommendation from us.

Unbelievable, Fantastic, Too Far Away to name a few of the descriptions I feel from looking at the party Pics.SOOO SAADDD that I could not be there. When I Do make it out ther, we will have to have our own little make up party formself and others who could not make it. Ona and Moki, what can I say, the aloha eminating from your home is Off the Scale.
Bring on the bigger batch of pictures, I think I can handle them now.

Really T-off'd I missed this. Got some boxes unpacked, organized some things, but ceiling fans up = zero. Screen door = zero. Place is still a big giant mess. I should have just had fun this weekend.

Damn sorry I missed the BBQ.

Wow, Ona, you have really cut yourself a juicy slice of heaven. Thanks so much for opening your home, and damn you for setting the decor bar so impossibly high!

Ona & Moki,
Thanks for posting the pics from your party, although it makes me feel so bummed that I have to miss so many of these get-togethers.
Your place looks phenomenal--you've definitely created a personal paradise that is truly awe-inspiring. I certainly hope to have a chance to see it during my upcoming visit to S.D.--most likely last weekend of the month. I'm going to try to work it out so that I can also make it up to Dr. Z's party on Saturday. Hope to see you soon!~~Cousin Dave

The day before this party I had some Chinese food... In my fortune cookie it predicted that I would be "attending a great and mysterious party where strange customs prevail". Wow, did that one ever come true!

OnaTiki and Moki have such a great place! It was an all around fantastic party by wonderful hosts! As other have said, the pictures posted here show how impressive it is. However, you really really have to see this in person to appreciate the incredible work and detail that has gone into their project.

As far as I could tell, it was a perfect night. The drinks were not only tasty but very inventive thanks to Monkeyman and Kick the Reverb. Also, Mrs. ModMana & myself took our first ever shift behind the bar & had a lot of fun mixing for the masses.

We're especially happy that this great tiki treasure is only a few miles from our house! Not quite staggering distance, but close. Thanks again for everything. Looking forward to the next one...


PS - sorry for the late post...it's been a rough week.

I can't believe so much time has already passed since this fantastic event!

I've been under the gun around here so I am terribly late with many, many thanks and pictures! Please forgive me for my tardiness.

It was a wonderful day and night. I can't thank Moki and Ona enough for the invitation and warm welcome I received as a noobie! The food, the drink, the atmosphere... all incredible. I was SO comfortable there. It was like a mini vacation!

I know for a fact I can't recall every person that I met there that night but I will remember them all one day! Promise! Thank you ALL for being so nice and warm and welcoming!

Enjoy the photos!

* I knew I'd get this whole picture embedding thing right eventually! Sorry for the error before!

Don't worry TikiTikiBoom, you are not as late as I am.

Thanks Ona and Moki for sharing your amazing cool pad with us. We had a great time!

Here's a few more photos including some blurry night shots that were still too enticing to pass up.
