Yeah, but will it be wireless?



Chongolio presents a very good idea. At the very least there should be one available computer that is hooked up to Tiki Central. Just make sure it has a spill/vomit proof keyboard.


I must admit this whole Forbidden Island venture sounds great. The only mistake is that it is not within stumbling distance of my home.

Another fantastic place to visit when I get across the pond.

Sounds great. Well done for taking on this great venture and for taking us on this great adventure.

Great news and best of luck! It's thrilling to see people keeping the tiki spirit alive and bringing it to the masses. Well, the Alameda masses anyway.

ahhhhh, I'm SO disappointed you're not venturing back into the container shipping business

Seriously, yippee. This is a win/win/win situation: we (NorCal) get yet another BB/Martiki/conga masterpiece collaboration, we (the Pineapples) live nearby, and Aunt Trish gets the opportunity to babysit the little pineapple MUCH more often!

Congratulations fellers, it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch!

Aloha !
A HUGE thanks to everyone for all the incredible replies and accolades. The TC Ohana are a very special bunch indeed!!
Just a reminder to sign up on our mailing list (

I dunno, real tiki bars (imho) are devoid of any kind of LCD, Plasma, CRT, or HDTV screens. It would be nice if there were one place in the world where one or more of these did not reside.

I could NOT be any more excited about this!!

Ok, that's a big fat lie.....

If I lived in Alameda OR if this were happening in Houston, THEN I could be more excited!

But I can always use another excuse to make it out to California, though
Congrats Martin and The Brothers Thanos!
YAAAY!!!

The computers ( all macs) wont be upstairs where anybody can see them. They will be downstairs in the covert california command, communication and cuban cigar center.
