Wow, awesome. That's cool about the show. I'm tired of seeing all the tiki placed dissapear. If it gets on tv, it will bring in back into the mainstream again and hopefully others will get the fever! Then more tiki places will open with it's popularity, hopefully!
We've got plenty of DIY projects we're working on this spring, the yard and waterfall/pond, the family room with matting on the far wall and ceiling, can't wait to get started!! It's coming together!
I'll post pics when it's done!

Just remember.....A lot of what was said was scripted

I just set it up on TIVO - along with the Forbidden Island Today show - thanks for the heads-up on the HGTV episode, as we missed it last time around!

I'm so glad I finally got to see this.
I can't believe they made you say that. You know what I'm talking about.

I saw it yesterday and thanks to the TIVO keyword search and automatic recording I finally got to see it.

My Windows Media Center PC recorded it, which means I have a digital copy that I can edit down to just the actual segment. I'll try to get that done and posted on YouTube asap.
Nice job OnaTiki and Moki! But darn those rapid-fire cuts and off-kilter camera angles!

The Look What I Did! segment on our home bar, The Moai Lounge, is scheduled to debut on Friday, May 25 at 6:00pm EDT/PDT!
I echo the sentiments of previous posters...the segment on Onatiki's pad was not only butchered (editing-wise), but far too short. From the pictures & descriptions I've heard of their joint, the HGTV segment barely scratched the surface. While it's really cool to see some national exposure for the neo-tiki renaissance (or whatever you choose to label the resurgence in tiki), it was disappointing to see such a brief, overly-edited piece.
We're pretty confident that, if nothing else, we'll look like total tools in our segment. And like Stewart Smalley used to say...that's okay. Because we're good enough, we're smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like our home tiki bar!
