Whew! What a weekend- I'm finally coming up for air after one hell of a good time. Ten thousand Mahalos to everyone who made it out for TC night, the grand opening, and last night as well. Or those of you who made all of the above! Are some of you still over there right now? You have to shower once in a while. God knows I do.

I'm really touched by the distances you all travelled to make it out, and I'm sorry that some of you had to wait outside for quite a while. (Royale, we'll get you in for a Fang- sorry about that!) But we can only hold so many, and it's a good thing we were being careful, as we had a visit from Alameda's finest. (SOP, apparently)

A very special thanks to everyone who gave a hand with bussing tables, crowd control, and more. The ohana feeling is alive and well at FI.

See everyone soon- if we haven't met yet, be sure to introduce yourself and say hi!

All the very, very best to everyone here-

martiki

It seems the average wait to get in after 6pm was 45mins to an hour!!! Has Alameda ever experienced that long (and that even coming) a line?!?!

I can't wait for Karaoke Wednesdays!!! Wait, Martiki-you don't have a karaoke machine!?!? WE don't need no STINKIN' MACHINE!!

I must say that Forbidden Island is the hippest and most beautiful establishment on the Island. Based on very positive feedback from patrons, I expect that it's presence is much appreciated. There's nothing like it on the island -- or elsewhere for that matter. Did I mention that Alameda is an ISLAND? Yes, it's an ISLAND. Surrounded on all sides by water, so yes, it's an ISLAND. Ohhh, my allergy medicine is going to my head. Too much fun this weekend.

Oh what a night! I was so fortunate to be in town on the TCers preview night at the Forbidden Island and meet so many TCers and check out the hard work that the guys have put into creating a sensational tiki meeting place and I sampled a number of drinks (I can remember that one had coconut and macadamia in it and and the others were real nice!) I have posted a couple of my photos taken on that night - Thanks to Mr Smiley for driving myself and friends to the night and taking us to Trader Vics on the way over. Great to meet Otto in person and have a chat about all things tiki in Australia







Hope to drop in for cocktails when I get over to the states again.

That first set of before and after pics should be framed and on the wall somewhere in the bar. What an amazing transformation!
