The Makaha Trip
WHEN: Sunday 23 October 2:00PM
WHERE: The Makaha 255 Great Rd Acton, MA (978) 263-3371

In the Kon-Tiki spirit, Bargoyle and I are planning a voyage to the Makaha, in Acton, MA. Rumor has it, it's an unreformed Polynesian-Chinese restaurant in Acton, MA. It's not been mentioned in Tiki Road Trip nor Critii so we'll be charting in new territory and we need a crew.


If enough people wanna go, reservations will be under "Jay", otherwise, just show up. The Pats are off that day but if anybody wants to watch football at the bar (don't tell Tikibars), I'm for that too. Who's in?

Well, it is looking more likely that I will be able to come. I am laid off, it doesn't look like I will be working on a campaign, and my boss just lost his job, so I may be looking for something else anyway.

Yay me.

I really am a Suffering Bastard.

Sorry, SB. This is your chance to open that tiki bar or that drive-in theater you always wanted. Do you play an instrument? Drasnin's looking for some musicians for VooDoo2. Any programming experience? My company's hiring but you'd probably have to move to the People's Republic of MA.

Hope to see you on the 5th. If you're free Sunday, me and Bargoyle will be at the Makaha in Acton.

No programming (but I do basic websites).
No musical talent of any kind.
And no capital to start a decent business.

I will try to be at the Kowloon on the 5th, but I don't expect to see anyone before that.

The Makaha Adventure can be summed up in two words: Tiki Gone

I did get to meet The Granite Tiki and we pigged-out plenty! Oh, yeah. The $5 Zombie was great but that's no reason to go to the Makaha. See everybody at the Kowloon!

Yes, tiki gone. All that was left was the A frame facade. But pappythesailor and I did indeed eat like pigs and had great conversation. Nice to meet you Jay and thanks for the invite.

I can't be there on the fifth but I wish I could!

Have a great time!

Ahh too bad on the Makaha - tiki gone = tiki bad.

I can't wait for the Kowloon on the 5th. I'm in total tiki withdrawal now after spending last week in southern CA. It wasn't an all consuming tiki trip, but more than I get to see around NE.

Here's a debriefing on my tiki trek last week:

- Tiki Ti: This place totally lives up to the hype. The bar area was packed so I never got a chance to chat with Mike and Mike. I did manage to knock out three drinks courtesy of the younger Mike. Ray's Mistake to start things out - 10/10 in my book. I only wish I knew how to mix those up. Next up, Uga Booga - mmm, love that dark rum and there was plenty of it - another killer drink. Lastly a Zombie to round out the night - not as strong as I expected but very tasty.

- Bali Hai: I read there weren't many tikis left in this place, but there seemed to be plenty when I went. The view of San Diego bay was gorgeous. The food was good. The wahine got the Beef and Peapods, I got the Chicken of the Gods. As for the important stuff (aka drinks) I knocked out two here. Numero uno, the Bali Hai Mai Tai. This drink truely was "out of this world". Next I tested out their Navy Grog. One word: strong! It tasted good too but you really knew the rum was in it (nothing wrong with that of course). The drink prices were very reasonable too, if I remember correctly both were under $7.

- Lastly we stayed at Humphrey's Half Moon Inn. This place was great! Not overwhelmingly tikified, but they're scattered about the property. The landscaping was very tropical and well kept. The only thing that bummed me out was the pool bar was closed - guessing due to the off season.

- Also managed to do a little bit of tiki mug shopping and picked up some glass floaters as well.

I'll bring some pics to the Kowloon and should have some posted online soon too. See everyone on the 5th at 6!

Aloha!
JohnMan

Hey Guys! Found another place for us (didn't see it mentioned anywhere), the Tahitian! They at least have a website. Also on Rt. 1 in Dedham.
