Aloha all, sorry I've been away for a bit. We had to put our cat, Harley, down the other day, and I've been a little "off" ever since. Still not used to not having the little guy around...old age is a bitch.

Anyway, on to happier topics (sorry if I depressed everyone)

V-day at the Huke...we've got Pappy, Granite, & myself (plus our respective better halves) Is that it? No other takers? Pappy & granite, do you want to meet up early at the bar? I'll prob be there on the early side, so let me know.

SBiM- I'm up for the haul if you want to host something. Just let us know when & we'll work it into our schedule.

Caber-Net Welcome to our little section of TC. Good to see another New Englander, and one who is a stone's throw away from me!! And owns a liquor store?!?!!? What a coincidence, because I LOVE liquor!! lol If you want in on the V-Day trip to the HuKeLau in chicopee, just let us know. Plenty of room for everyone!

Also, an open call to all the New England Ohana: The Bargoyle's bithday is at the end of this month. Either going to have a little shin-dig at the pad in Tolland, or trek out to Western Mass to the Luau Hale (A long ride, I know, but I still havent hit that place!) Who knows, maybe I'll wind up doing both! Also, it seems that every year, my birthday party winds up moving to Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun at some point in the evening...just a heads up.

Anyway, this old fart gets even older on the 28th, so the weekend before is up for festivities (25th most likely).

Let me know if anyone is interested in joining!

Where's the Luau Hale? I'm always up for supporting the local tiki. We need to see 'bout getting sat together at da Hu Ke Lau. Looks like all the (southern) New Englander TCers are just fair-weather tiki friends who are going to spend Valentine's Day at Appleby's (and listen to Jimmy Buffet). We can see about getting a table for six (if Granite agrees).

Sweet. Table for 6 it is!! And pappy!! Yikes!! a little shot across the bow with the buffet remark! heh heh. I love it!!

Luau Hale is in Lenox, Ma....waaaaaaaaaaaay out west along the pike. Exit 2 I think. Definately a haul, and not sure if its worth the trip or not.

Maybe some intrepid tiki-hunters want to make the trip with me as a seperate occasion in the comming weeks/months? Its right near the outlet mall in Lee, so that might help convince some significant others to make the trip?

ANyway, 25th looks like cocktails & casino for any who are intersted, then do Luau Hale sometime in March? And isnt March when we need to have our quarterly N.E.T.C. meeting at the Kowloon?

Hey hey now, I understand not totaly digging Jimmy Buffett but he's a great performer and writes some nice tunes, he's even managed to work some tiki style in now and then, besides, no performer who's been around as long as he has, should be mentioned in the same sentence as Appleby's, the worst restaurant chain of all time!!

I'm with ya on the Applebees, Granite. I dont know what it is, but like once a year they'll advertise their new "Spicy Menu" or whatever they roll out.

And we forget how much we hate that place, and give it ANOTHER try, and it all tastes like the same old crap as before. I dont know what it is, but ALL of their food has this weird tang to it, no matter what it is. Beef, chicken , fish, pasta...like it all gets the same 11 secret herbs & spices, only it all sucks.....yuk...im feeling kind of sick to my stomache just thinking about it....think i need to go lie down

That is very funny, because that is my exact experience with Applebee's!

For some reason, their promotion makes me try it out every couple of years, and I try something different everytime, only to be disapointed in the exact same way!

There aren't many restaurants out there in which I like absolutely nothing on the menu!

But I digress, I'm really looking forward to hanging out with you all on Valentine's Day, and I hope we get some more takers!

Sorry for dissing Jimmy--oh, hell-- no I'm not. Bargoyle,
Sorry about Harley. How's Guinness taking it? Sorry, I gotta pass on the casino--must save money. I'm up for Kowloon, Luau Hale, Tahitian, Bali Hai--anywhere. Anytime anybody wants to hit a restaurant just give me some notice & I'll try to be there.

Bargoyle - my condolences on Harley. He seemed like a chillin kitty. Plus he never once drank my Mai Tai when I was over. That's one respectful cat. Now your dog on the other hand needs to get the drinking under control, or at least pour his own.

I might be game for your bday party and a March Kowloon NETC meeting. I'll check in with the planning committee and get back to you.

Looks like I'll have to hit Applebee's on the 14th. Heard they're bringing back the Shanghai Wings. Man I hope it's Buffet night when we go. That helps the wings just slide down... Or maybe I'll put on the sad face and get some buy in for the HKL.

Well sleepy tikis are calling. Got an underwriting training class in Norwood tomorrow and if I'm sleepy I'll be sleeping. Aloha all!
JohnMan

Thanks for the sympathies, and yeah, Guinness has been a little "lost" too. (More reason not to shut her off from the Mai Tais johnman! You just gotta learn to not let your drink sag down into "dog level")

Ok, I realize we're getting 1 trip ahead of ourselves here planning a March Kowloon meet before we've even done HKL on the 14th, and I'm gonna screw it up even more by suggesting a trip to the Luau Hale in Lenox, MA on Saturday Feb 18th. Thinking dinner time (6-ish).

Gonna hit the outlet mall in Lee with the wahine before hand then grab some grub & grog at the Luau Hale. Any/all interested are welcome to join in. The more the merrier. Sorry about the short notice. Let me know who's in and I'll make sure we get a big enough table. Also, as this is a long haul, carpooling might be in order. If anyone wants to hang out with me while the wahine shops, I'm more than glad to have the company!

Also, still thinking of having people over on the 25th, more to come on that front.

As far as Kowloon in March, 11th or 25th work for me. Lets fill that friggin place this time! I wanna see some new faces for the big March meeting!

Rain, Caber-net, tiki-greg, quincy, Tangaroa Ed, surfintiki, professahhummingflowah, Chief Lapu Lapu, Mr.Ho, tikisgrl, The Mayor Of Exotica, SBiM, Granite, Johnman, Pappy, tiki mortis, anyone I've forgotten, and any of you lurkers out there, its time to ROCK the Kowlooooon!!! (after rocking the Huke, and the Hale of course...sheesh, do I EVER stop rocking??? heh heh)

Hope to see you all sometime at one of these joints in the near future.

my condolences on Harley too. Never met him, but I have a cat who's getting close to his "time" so I understand completely.

A March trip to the Kowloon is certainly possible for us.

April 8th will be out because I am doing the MS Walk. Since we last met, my wahine was diagnosed with MS, so if you feel so motivated to sponsor me, go to
https://www.nationalmssociety.org/pledge/index.asp and search for me (i think you need to know my name is Jon Bartholomew)

I'm still thinking about doing a thing here, but my grand idea for a winter thing probably will have to wait until next year - a fat Tuesday (or the weekend before) feast featuring PIG! I'm not going to do a pig roast (nowhere to do that anyway), but weenies in sauce in the fondue pot, bbq pork sandwiches, westcoast style chinese bbq pork (cold!), pigs in a blanket and other yummy treats made out of Ms. Piggy. Too little time to plan that this year.

What do people think of that idea?

Not to digress, but totally off topic... Please JohnMan tell me that you are not in "Insurance"? When I saw "underwriting" ever so early this morning a frown came on my face! I am an Insurance person and I'm now curious to see if you are one of the few the proud the totally manic? I'm a claims adjuster in other words I'm pretty nuts!!!

On another note, SBiM I am very sorry to hear about your Wahine!!!

And Bargoyle I didn't get to meet Harley but losing a pet is never easy so a Mai-tai from me to you & one for Guinness!!!

SBiM, SOrry to hear about Traci. Our thoughts are with you. Good luck on the walk! Hopefully we'll see you guys at the Kowloon next month
