Hi gang

LOL.


Have fun!

I'm so out of the loop in just a week- Tara has to call JT in Chicago to announce an event in Emeryville.

They did the same thing recently at Palo Alto- of course, no one told me or anyone else until after it was over. Apparently it went very well, so I suggest everyone check it out. It's a pretty darn good book, if you don't have it already.

You *are* out of the loop, martiki! I got the same press release yesterday, tikibars beat me to the punch in posting it. I didn't get word about the Palo Alto one, either... bah! Sounds like they're starting to get a bit more savvy about getting the word out to the tiki world, though. That reminds me of a funny story to post in the Palo Alto bar remodel thread...

At any rate, sounds like a fine excuse to pop into Emeryville. It's the night before the big Royal Hawaiian blowout down in Laguna Beach, sounds like it could be a packed weekend.

Rumor has it that there will be special guests visiting from Hoity Toity-land for this! We have a babysitter, and we're planning on going, who else is in? We could even go to the Kona, since I've only been once and I had the little pineapple with me, and he was crying because everyone was making too much noise, he's such a baby!

So, who is going to this???
Pineapples are in!

The fashion police are in!

Yes, the Kona Club afterwards. That's the night Tej from Club Mallard is working there. He recently left Club Mallard so it's the only night he tends bar now. Kona Kona Kona!

dang it! I have other plans that night -- "Koyaanisqatsi" on the big screen with Philip Glass doing live accompaniment. That's probably the ONE thing that can keep me away from Tiki.....

"Search" function is your friend:

Why does it seem that only about 12 people here have ever heard of the Kona Club?

Lack of sign outside is a MAJOR problem in my opinion. Lets say all the Safeway grocery stores changed names to Good Deal Groceries, but they didn't change the signs. Someone says I love shopping at Good Deals, you say "where"?!?! Signage is very important. Can't figure out why is still says "Kings X"-maybe someone knows.

I heard the soundtrack to "Kona-sqatsi" will be playing at the end of Piedmont Ave!
