Some updates on stuff we've got happening in New England (thanks for bumping up the thread!!)

#1. OHANA TICKETS ARE ON SALE!!!!! You need to choose if you want the early (5.30) or late (8.30) dinner show on Saturday. Both shows will be exactly the same (and are included with your ticket price!), so choose based on when you usually get hungry!

http://www.luauatthelake.com/tickets.htm

As a thank you to those who buy their tickets early, anyone who registers before the end of April will receive a FREE souvenir Tiki Resort Hurricane glass at the event!!

Also, the Fisherman Tiki Trio have joined Ohana!!!! We're thrilled to have them on board. Smooth tiki tunes to tickle your earholes while relaxing by the pool....what could be better? Oh, how about the fact that also playing are Waitki, Bamboo Saxotica, 9th Wave, and few special surprise performaces?

Go buy those tickets!!! www.luauatthelake.com

#2. We're got the Tiki Retreat comming up in the Berkshires on May 2nd. Dinner at the Luau Hale (an AMAZING place you need to visit, even if its not with us at the Retreat), followed by a hotel room crawl.
More info on the thread here:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=31433&forum=4&2

This will be a nice low cost weekend getaway for anyone jonesin' for a tiki fix. The event is FREE (although you have to buy your dinner & cocktails at Luau Hale), and the hotel is only like $80 if you want to spend the night & room crawl with us.

#3. The New England Chapter of the FOM (The Queequegs) are co-hosting (along with drinkboston) a tiki event at Eastern Standard in Boston on Saturday, April 4th, 2pm. Brother Cleve will be spinning exotica, the rum will be flowing, and Aloha spirit will abound. Save the date! More info at :

http://drinkboston.com/2009/03/07/save-the-date-for-tiki-mania/

There's alot more to come on this one as we hammer out details, but it should be a great day/evening out in Boston. Plan to join us!


As usual, huge Malahos to everyone who helps make these events as great as they are (organizing, promoting, attending). They'd all suck if it werent for you, the great tiki folks who bring the Aloha spirit with them where ever they go!

Thanks, and we'll see you at the Lake (or in the mountains, or in the City...or all three!!)

Dusting off the old events thread here to let everyone know that we miss you and don't want to wait until Ohana to see everyone.

So, along those lines, we're planning on invading Kowloon on the 15th (Saturday, 8/15) at around 5:30pm.

Meet us at the Sunken bar out in the dining area. If you're not sure when that is, follow the crys of "Two more scorpion bowls down here please!" and you'll find us.

See ya then!!

It's been too long since the New England folk have been together. Hope everyone can find time in their busy schedules to come out to meat & greet.

Also, I forgot to post the WAITIKI Celebratory DRINKathon announcement in this thread too. Come down to Drink (348 Congress St., Boston, MA near the Childrens Museum) at 4 p.m. in two weeks, 8/23, to help us say "bonzai!!" as we celebrate the new CD. No-host party. Drink will be serving their favorite drinks from the famous Waitiki Drink Menu, as well as whipping up an "Adventures in Paradise" punch, to be served free to all who buy/have bought the new W7 album. Hope to see you there. Wear your aloha shirts, queequeg shirts, or Okonkuluku University logo wear.

I was just about to post that link myself! Here's an excerpt from the website:

LUPEC is thrilled to announce our 3rd Annual Fall Fundraiser, the LUPEC BOSTON “TIKI BASH“, to benefit Cambridge-based non-profit organization, On The Rise!

On November 14 we’ll transform the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts into a 1950’s-themed Tiki party featuring retro-libations, live entertainment, dancing, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and our famous prize raffle. This is LUPEC Boston’s third annual fall fundraising event. This year’s beneficiary is On the Rise, a Cambridge-based non-profit that supports the initiative and strength of women living in crisis or homelessness. Tickets are $35 in advance/ $45 at the door and can be purchased this Friday at Grand in Somerville, Toro in the South End, Drink in Fort Point, Trina’s Starlite Lounge in Somerville, Buckaroo’s Mercantile in Cambridge, or online now at
www.thebostonshaker.com.

The LUPEC BOSTON “TIKI BASH” will pay tribute to the 1950’s theme with of-the-era cocktails, Tiki cocktail demonstrations by some of Boston’s best bartenders, and live entertainment including acts by Thru the Keyhole Burlesque, Boston-based ukulele sensation Uke Springsteen, and other Island-themed acts. DJ Brother Cleve, a Boston institution, will spin ’50s-era music throughout the evening between sets.

Light cocktail party fare will be provided for the evening by some of the city’s most highly regarded culinary talent, including Mike Smith of Toro, Greg Reeves of Green Street, Island Creek Oysters will be on hand shucking their acclaimed “Duxbury Pearls”, and The Boston Derby Dames will skate around with sweets provided by Taza Chocolate.

A prize raffle will feature gift baskets from St-Germain and Brix, a one-of-a-kind handmade handbag from Nani designs, gift certificates donated from Toro, Trina’s Starlite Lounge, Franklin Cafe, Vee Vee, Fresh Hair Salon, and many, many more!

Aloha & Mele Kalikimaka!!!

Short notice, I know, but on Saturday the 26th, the Queequeg Chapter of the FOM will be having a meat&greet/Festivus celebration at my home bar & arcade wonderland, The Lono Lounge in Tolland, CT.

4pm until the rum runs out. Limited extra beds, unlimited couch/floor space, or arrange sober transportation.

Hit me with a PM for directions if you don't know where my joint is, or respond here if you wanna come over.

Oh, and while the booze is free, I don't really cook (at least nothing I'd want to serve to guests). So feel free to bring something to munch on.

Happy Festivus!!
