Thanks for coming out Unga - it was great to see you again.

It was great to see the old gang and some new faces as well!

Special thanks to behind the scenes tiki "pixies" Bruce and Otto for the making the reservations and the discounted mai tais.

My brain is still a little foggy, but I don't remember drinking anything. I think I left my credit card at the Conga Lounge.

it was a fine time and a pleasure to see everyone! thanks dg and everyone else who was involved in the planning. i'd also like to thank the jab for carting us around and putting us up for the night at the tropical tradewinds of alameda.

also want to apologize to everyone for being an annoying drunk. normally i just forget to get on the bus!

see everyone here in the valley next month for our monthly gathering. the date is still tbd.

Mahalo to everyone me & my husaband (who has yet to choose a TC name)met! And big props to those who travelled from far off lands (like Vallejo & Los Angeles) just to sip Maitais together. We had a hoot and a half - I so wish we could have continued the adventure to the Conga Lounge. Where did people go after that?

M & B: We'll see you at the City o' Alameda's Fire Dept Pancake Breakfast tomorrow. mmmmmm!

Nice meeting you two, Haole'akamai! The Conga was fun, I left early (about 12:30?) so I don't know if anything happened after that.
Otto has come up with an "interactive" idea (he is SO new Millenium!) about future drink specials. He was thinking that those who attend chose choose their favorite drink for NEXT time fro ma list of about ten. The winning drink will be the next months special. That way, if you don't show up in August, for example, you can
t pick September's special!
I do want to thank Sven Koch and Bernard from Trader Vics for offering the Mai-Tai special to us with only about 8 hours advance notice to them! That is customer service!! They are ZAZZ!!

Thanks for keeping me posted on how you are helping out with MY monthly idea... (ahem ahem... )

Starting next month we are officially adding Conga Lounge to the line-up (i.e. Trader Vics around 7-9:30 ish; Conga Lounge thereafter) becauase Conga Lounge ROCKS and Mike has graciously offered a special TC discount on a drink and food item - details are still being worked out...

I am so making sure I can get to The Conga Lounge this time (even if it means taxi-ing myself home, dang nabitt!)....

So we're for sure on for August 25th?


(this is so cool....)

The Conga Lounge "afterparty" is a great addition. I am glad to help out with the Trader Vics event. If you ever think that I am overstepping my bounds in helping plan (or whatever) this continuing Trader Vic's event, let me know, and I will gladly sit back and do nothing other than show up. I won't know if I step on anyone toes, so to speak, unless they tell me. Thanks.

No worries, Bruce~ Just want to make sure we're not separately negotiating a discount on the same drink or food at two different places in one night, etc. We TC'ers love our variety, especially in drinks! Please continue to keep all of us posted on your arrangements with Trader Vics.

We are ON for August 25th! I will post a new thread on it around 2 weeks prior to the event.

July's get-together was unbelievably fun!!! Can't wait for August's installment, needless to say--we'll be there. I like the 'pick next month's drink' idea. In fact, it had occurred to me. Seems like a good way to keep things lively! Is that for both places or TV's only?

Humungous thanks to Dangergirl for a wonderful event! and appreciation goes also to the Bruce/Otto Tiki Team for their ever-so-helpful contribution. I STILL think the Mai Tai is TV's finest hour. I am ALWAYS happy to have a six buck Mai Tai. Even if the hamburgers take an hour...! !!!

Bill and I spent a quiet Tuesday evening at the Conga this week with our favorite bartender (the gentleman otherwise known as Conga Paul) and we are so pleased to make the Conga a regular Last Thursday stop! (Thanks Jab for a sample Scorpion sip there, btw; I ordered one Tuesday night. Yum. I'll vote Scorpion first for my Conga drink!)

Unga, it is always a pleasure to see you! DH, you are a FUNNY drunk but not an annoying one. Martiki, if you want to carpool from our house next time, you'd be welcome. It was funny seeing 'FGCUTTR' zzzoom by us, heading home on I-80. We were driving, er, sedately.

Haole, so nice to 're-meet' you after all these years! At a subsequent luncheon with DG and other friends, we realized another member of that party knew you from somewhere too! I think you are famous (as in legendary, not notorious although that might be keen too).

see y'all soon! tikivixen
