Scottiki and his Wahine hosted a night out back in January for the DC/MD/VA Tikiphiles group... It was a fantastic time indeed and I've got photos to prove it:

The Moai Lounge really is tough to beat. The nicest folks and the absolute best host and hostess. Veritable heaven for a tikiphile.

Wow, I am very jealous. That is one of the best bars I have ever seen! And to have so many tikiphiles living near you, and you are not in California!

Scott & Jen, congratulations on having creating such an oasis in an area that is a desert for tiki.
Your creativity and effort is beyond mere praise from us mortals.

Wow, can't believe I missed this thread for so long. To completely understate the collective amazement and joy, the two of you did great. Dominique will be thrilled to see the pics. Where did you put the timor stool, btw?

Scott you did a great job breaking down the explanation of the light projection. You made out like a bandit for a custom steel template. As an aside, they call 'em "gobos" over in the theater world. The cookie name is rather funny. Nice choice of lighting fixtures. Double kudos. Ever thought of doing a party gel, where you cut up 3 colors and tape them together into one gel cut? No hurry. I like the projection in white. Very bold at the bottom of the stairs.

Rock on! I so look forward to paying both of you a visit someday. Folks, not only are they killer decorators, but they are yet another fine example of the fab ohana that is TC.

Thanks for sharing the pics, Rupe!
We'll be having another big bash sometime in June...probably the 24th...so mark your calendars with something non-permanent.
Foamy is an incredibly talented artist, and we're lucky to have him in this tiki-desert!
I.D. of Tiki...thanks again for your hospitality last November! The Mai Kai & Oceania were phenomenal by themselves, but having you as a tour guide made 'em truly unforgettable experiences. After a ton of lugging it around the house, the East Timor stool ended up in our family room...we decided that it would be lost in the lounge, so now it's the sole tiki element in our cozy den!
Personally, I like the term Gobo, 'cuz she was a Fraggle, but in TV we usually call 'em cookies, short for cucoloris (a very basic light break-up pattern...the name was at some point bastardized & is now used to refer to any pattern).
Thanks again for the comps...it's still a work in progress, and one that we love to share with the extended ohana!
peace,
Scottiki

For your amusement, here's the latest addition to our basement escape!

The stairwell to the Moai Lounge featured these lame-o square poles:



So we knocked 'em out, and replaced 'em with decorative ship's rigging:



Ah, much better.

Still don't have the river of lava under the bamboo bridge, but in the meantime, I think I'm gonna play with the stairwell walls...maybe something along the lines of faux black lava rock.

peace,
Scottiki

very cool scott ~

not to be a killjoy, but (since i deal with these issues all the time) by code you're supposed to not have a more than 4" gap at your stair rails - not that a building inspector is gonna infiltrate your house in a ninja suit . but ye might consider... dunno... maybe another rope in between the rigging top gaps to reduce it a bit. feel free to ignore this free advice

When you get that lava flow thing all worked out, I want full specs and step by steps. Sounds VERY cool. Nice change to the stairs by the way!

I'll definitely post a step-by-step whenever I figure out what I'm doin'...I know what I want, it's just the age-old issue of transforming imagination into reality. Or something like that.
J$: BUZZKILL!!!
Actually, thanks for mentioning the code stuff...it brings up an interesting question: should I be concerned whether my home bar is up to code? Seriously...if for some godforsaken reason we ever sell the house, naturally I'd make sure everything's up to snuff, but while it's just the 2 of us (and the dogs), it seems like a moot point whether an inspector gives my place a seal of approval or not.
Thoughts?
But as long as it's illegal, I'll happily call the Moai Lounge a speakeasy!
peace,
Scottiki
