Welcome aboard Ed! Definitely come to the Kowloon or any other events we organize. There's no requirement on joining our group other than being into the tiki scene - and if you're reading TC you're already there.

Yeah Granite, no prob on moving the November date. The following Saturday (Nov 12th) is good for me too. Just give us a heads up on your next available Saturday after the 5th.

Well Pappy's down at the Hukilau and we're stuck up here to endure a rainy holiday weekend (at least that's the RI forecast). Hope you're having a killer time Pappy!!!

Well work is over for me - time to head home. Talk to everyone soon.

Hey everyone!
Thanks for the welcome!

I'm going to come out on November 5 for the Kowloon. I'll probably just have drinks with you folks as I can't do chinese food (allergies...bummer).

Out of curiosity Bargoyle, what type of Mercedes did you have? (I just got a 320 C about a month and a half ago) Too bad that happened though...getting another?

I gotta tell you guys, I won't be able to come to any get togethers for a while.

At my work, we are in a cash flow "situation" and we're all going on half-time until probably about mid December when a big grant comes in.

So if any of you like the kind of work we do (www.mainecitizen.org and
www.mainecleanelections.org - I manage the websites) I would love to talk to you about donating heartily to us so I can go back on full time ASAP.

Sorry for sliding into the realm of politics a little. I understand the rules of the board, so let's not debate the issues I work on here.

Thanks, and I hope to see some of you in the winter when we really need the warmth of the South Pacific.

Thanks so much for the offer to change dates, but it wouldn't be worth it in my case. I'm a musician who works most nights others have free to go out. And even when I do have a rare Saturday off or something, a gig could pop up that I'd have to jump at. So just go on planning dates and get togethers and eventually, hopefully, I'll be free and I'll be there.

Eventually, I'll do some legwork and plan something around my schedule and beg you all to come out! Hopefully it will be a night of hapa haole music somewhere with a project/band I've got in the planning stages!

Granite: I understand man. I played in a band in Memphis for a few years (mid 90's)...any work is good work! Just keep us posted on when/where you wanna meet & I'm sure some of us can make it. Get good at the hawaiian/exotica music and I'll have to hire you for my next Luau. Lookit that!! A paying gig already!!!

Tang Ed: Car was (WAS) a C230. The little sport coup hatchback (The dealer hated that expression, kept calling it a 3-door...I kept calling it a hatchback to get him riled..heh heh) So yeah, it sucked in the snow (RWD) so I stepped up to a c240 fourmatic (4WD) and I'm watching my gasoline bills skyrocket!

SBiM: Sorry to hear about the slowdown. If you wanna come down regarless, first cocktail is on me (now no ordering a scorpion bowl for 4 as your drink!! heh heh) But seriously, the Kowloon is a relatively inexpensive place. Me & da Wahine are always surprised after eating & drinking our fill when we get a check thats about 1/2 of what we expected it to be. Plus, you got a free drink comming!! See you there!

See everyone there....Nov 5 (sat) at Kowloon....what time?

Oh, and dont everyone come up to me and tell me they're SBiM and ask for their free drink either!!! heh heh.

Thanks for the offer, Bargoyle!

There's a new development that might make it difficult still. One of the initiative campaigns is considering hiring me until Nov. 8th. If that happens, I will not be able to leave the state (nor the office) the entire week before the election.

I'm going to play this one by ear and if I can't come down on the 5th, I will make a subsequent one!

Aloha New England Tikiphiles,

Professah Humming Flower from WAITIKI here. Not sure if we're on your radar, but we are a Boston/New England-based exotic tiki band. We'd totally be down to visit local tiki restaurants with you... FYI, we've actually played at the Kowloon and at the Tiki Room (Lansdowne St., near Fenway) for private parties.

Anyways, hope we can hook up . Catch up with us on our website at
www.WAITIKI.com ........ damn, i'm really excited that there are a bunch of Boston/New Englanders on this board!

-Professah Humming Flower of WAITIKI

Hi Professah Humming Flower - WIATIKI is a Boston exotica band? Cool! I'll be checking out your stuff and probably picking up your CD.

I think the group would be pumped to hang with you guys at the Kowloon in November. Right now it looks like it will be November 5th at 6PM (that should answer Bargoyle's quesiton on what time).

Granite and SBiM - we'll definitely have some more gatherings in the new year if not before then so sooner or later I'm sure you guys will be able to make it.

Back to work for me - talk to everyone soon!
JohnMan

Professah Humming Flower, Do you have any local (New England) gigs coming up?

Your gigs would be the perfect "unifying agent" for we New England Tikifiles!

I noticed you've used Bobby Gallegos on trumpet, I've played with him many times, great player!

Congratulations on your Hukilau gig, I experienced home town pride when I heard you were going to be there.

I'll certainly be buying your CD and looking out for chances to see you live.

Dang! All this music stuff goin on. Love it! I'm a ex-pro musician too, if only we all could hook up, drink mai tai's and jam. That would be my desire. Jam, Jam, jam! I'm mostly recording solo crap in my studio, and I want to jammmmm!

We dont' have any gigs coming up just yet in Boston but we have played a bunch around town... past club shows have been at the Lizard Lounge, Milky Way. I'll let you know if there's anything else coming up; in the meantime please sign up on our mailing list at http://waitiki.com/mailinglist.cfm. We'd love to meet you all and talk about tiki stuff!

When we were down in Fort Lauderdale this past weekend, we met a couple folks from the New England area, though mostly in CT and NH. Not sure if any of you up on this board were down there ... were you? (Also, has anyone here seen WAITIKI perform in Boston at all?)

To The Granite Tiki - yes, we used Bobby Gallegos in the Waitiki Orchestrotica. He is a great player! The Waitiki Orchestrotica is our side-project that explores the bigband sounds of Juan Garcia Esquivel. As far as we know, we are the only folks in the world performing Esquivel's bigband music live. You can learn more about our Esquivel connection here: http://waitiki.com/esquivel.cfm.

Thanks for helping to keep the spirit of exotica alive and well!

Oxolotl,
Prof. Humming Flowah and WAITIKI

Hey Prof & Waitiki, come meet up w/ us on the 5th at the Kowloon. 6pm. I suggest meeting at the A-Frame entrance under the KU.

We could meet inside at the bar, but the kowloon main bar is now a keno sports bar. Leaves much to be desired, and the way the last "meet in the bar" went (sorry pappy) I'm a little nervous about trying that route again.

Maybe I'll make a sign and sit out under the Ku.....

So how many is that comming now? If we can get a tenative head count maybe we can get some special seating arrangements? "We wanna sit on the boat!! And get a bartender out here to work the boat-bar!!" heh heh.

Ok, so who's in?

Hi Prof. Humming Flowah, I think I met you at Hukilau's after hours party.. Unga Bunga's? (I've got to post my Mai Kai drink list...if I could just remember) I just want to say again that both Waitiki's Drasnin and Denny sets were excellent. Now I'm back in Maine and see on your website that I missed an Esquivel set in Jamaica Plain.. wha? an Esquivel set?! Who does that? I'm only 3 hours from there! Any plans to do another sometime in the future? I'm planning on driving down the next time you play out anyway but a night of live Esquivel.. whoa, I think I'd like that... a lot.

Mahalo

Definitely count me in. My wife should be coming and maybe a couple of other friends as well. I'll have a firm head count by next weekend. The boat bar sounds good Bargoyle!

Meeting up in A-frame entrance sounds like a good plan.

It sounds like Wrestlemania is going on in the kids room so I'll talk to everyone later...

not sure if i can make the nov. 5 kowloon meet-up; might be in nyc that weekend for my birthday.

any of you folks familiar with the LUAU HALE restaurant in lenox? that's another tiki one - actually the very first tiki restaurant i'd been to, during one of them summers when i was playing at the orchestra festival out at tanglewood.

searched for it on critiki but it didn't come up.
