Bongo's house sure to be fun
got there so early they weren't even done
drinks just startin as the food rolled in
that kick-ass Lapu Lapu was sure to make you sin
some time when you have 2 weeks to spare
you can walk around the bongo's and see artifacts with flare
back at the bar with the TIKI Central peeps
what no Mad-Tiki, that's right we kept out all the creeps
we did not want to leave as the time grew very near
but it was off to Kona lanes where the only true drink is beer
so we counted up the lanes, passed out all the shoes
that silly little Bongo, I think he snuck in some booze
five lanes a blazin, all filled balls-O-flingin
no one fealin pain except the pins that were a stingin
gutters to the left and gutters to the right
ten pin down the center, don't you put up any fight
with style from Lucky Designs and that big spaz Lapu Rocker
every time he thru the ball I just thought it was Joe Cocker
Shelly playin two games, the score kept getting higher
everybody's standard line, "haven't played in 10 years", LIAR
Then that Crazy Al was bowlin kinda gooney
but he did take home the trophy for being looney-tooney
I hope you can wade thru all the digital pics
and catch a glimpse of Sugar-Caddy he bowled a 146
a special thanks to Chiki, for bringing parting gifts
I was a little sad the King had no ukulele rifts
thinking of the next day, sore muscles and hurt bones
we took off to Azteka to see the TIKI Tones
when I walked in the door the tunes they were a blazing
Crazy Al again on the floor, could be some strange college hazing
dancin on the floor and Tina shakin it in the booth
I laughed so hard at Cary's knees, I almost chipped a tooth
parting was sweet sorrow, but it was really time to split
the next band up was some country western shit
I love my Tiki family and all that their about
and if it's more than 2 weeks to see them, it feels like a drought
-----------------the end-------------
Thanks to Bongo for keepin the TIKI alive
see you at the 6:22 boat parade

Great shin-dig last night! Thanks to TikiBong and all co-conspirators. It was a pleasure to meet you all in person.

Sorry I couldn't make it to the Tiki Tones show. After that blue m-f-er, I thought it best to stay and bowl until I was able to accurately line my hood ornament up with the nice yellow lines on the road.

Predictably, I bowled poorly. But I had all five lanes to myself for the first 20 minutes! Continuous non-stop bowl-a-rama!

BTW, for those who asked about my website, it's at

Wow, what a ball!
Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo to the Tiki Bong tribe for their gracious hospitality. Lovely hut, Madame Bong.
Great seeing all the regulars and meeting new TC'ers. Missed the Tiki Tones... got sucked into the kareoke gig till 2 am....we're taking the act on the road when the bamboo business gets slow and/or Ben runs out of ideas. The audience was an interesting crowd. All held funny looking blue cocktails and kept falling off their chairs, yet clapped relentlessly. The bowling shoe police finally rushed into the bar, interrupted our number (yes, it was Bobby McGee, Lapu Rocker), and physically removed Kona Lanes' rightfully owned property. Whatta scene. Tough crowd; dedicated bowling alley employees, WOW.
Aloha! WOW!

What a freaking blast is right! Glad you all could make it to our shrine to tiki. I couldn't post till now cause I either caught that 1-day Nile Virus thing or had a massive hangover.

Hated to leave for Kona Lanes but there were balls to roll.

Speaking of which, Crazy Al was was throwing balls like something out of a Flintstone's show! After much disussion, it was decided Al rightfully won the tiki bowling trophy. The man truely is 'Crazy Al'.

I hope someone has some pictures to post (hopefully the 'non-incriminating ones) so I can remember what happened that night. Things got fuzzy after we drained the water cooler with 5 gallons of high octane Lapu Lapu.

I do remember catching hell from the Kona Bowl manager for throwing 2 balls at once. I told him I only did it because I was seeing double! I also have a hazy memory of syncronized bowling with, I think, Sugarcaddydaddy (?).

The Tiki Tones really topped the night off right. I hope everyone made it back to their respective huts safely.

Thank you Traderpup, Bamboo Ben, AlnShelly, and others for the gifts. Ben the namesake gift you made for me is something that in 50 years future TikiCentralites will immortalize.

Bigbro, I hope your 'volcano' erupted with great fury that night, as we toasted in your honor!

The Southern Cali TC contingent is THE HOTBED OF TIKI HAPPENINGS!

P.S. Shelly, I believe you left your aloha shirt in my tiki bar (wink, wink).

It sounds like you all had a blast! Did anyone happen to find out what the life expectancy might be of the Kona Lanes?

Yes indeed, Kona Lanes tiki night was a blast. Also enjoyed Museum de Bullat - quite a hut ya got there Bong. Can't believe we finished the whole 5 gallon Sparklets bottle of Lapu Lapu!

Caddy Daddy, Sabu - post your pics! My battery died and I didn't get pics of the soiree at Kona.

I think I got a touch of Bong's Nile Virus too, but I'm up and moving now. I had such a good time meeting all of you and experiencing Bong's tiki museum. While we didn't make It to the Tiki Tones, we did have a great time at the kareoke bar. I had so much fun, I will be damned if I ever miss another So Cal TC event. Nice poem Bax, you have such a way with words.

By the way, I hate bowling.
I suck.

-Spike

Sorry we couldn't make it. Coming back from Havasu took us almost 7 hours! We got in at 9:00 and we just didnt have the energy to go.

We'll be there for the next one.

Here are my pictures from the event. Please note - My photos are not blurry. They are "artistic". They objectively capture the event as seen through the eyes of any of us who had too many of those Adios MF'ers that the Kona Lanes bar was serving.


Here is Bong presiding over his garage-side Tiki Bar, which was truly an astounding creation. I didn't get any pictures of the museum inside his house, unfortunately. I was too busy drinking lapu-lapu and eating appetizers, trying to catch up to everyone who had gotten there ahead of me.

Futura Girl and Kukuinut and more of TikiBong's garage bar.

Crazy Al and Bong, trying on their shoes, balls, and beverages.

Crazy Al's "Fred Flinstone" windup. He would then glide down the lane on his bare tippy-toes, hover in the air for a full two seconds, then release the ball with a sonic BOOM! He rolled many strikes until the alcohol took effect.

Futura Girl and C.B. Howlie

Lapu-Rocker with his deceptively sober wind-up.

King Kukulele and Shell-In-The-Pacific

Big Al prepares to lob his tiny coconut at some offending pins.

Spike (Luckydesigns) and Sabu The Coconut Boy.

CB Howlie and Crazy Al release in tandem, Al using the patented "bounce it off my shin" technique.

The usual result of Crazy Al's "bounce it off my shin" technique.

Chikitiki.

The indomitable Doctor Z ignores the blatant interference from Polynesian Pop and CB Howlie.

Crazy Al and Floratina.

Lapu-Rocker and SugarCaddyDaddy keeping score.

TikiBong giving us just a little too much information.

Yes, Bong. You da' man. Now please tuck your shirt back in.

King Kukulele and Bamboo Ben.

Spike imitates the young Elvis in the karaoke bar. (If he would only imitate the 40-year-old Elvis, I might get a decent non-blurry photo)

Please note Crazy Al's well-deserved trophy.

Sabu

Great pics Sabu!

Well I knew the karaoke would come back to haunt me. Maybe next time we can get some more people out there for a karaoke night.
