Come on over and introdce yourself to me or Christie (we'll be the ones running the show), and we'll point you in the direction of all the other TC'ers in the crowd.

I've yet to meet a Centralite who wasn't into the idea of hoisting a few Zombies with a new member of the tribe.



Hey Thanks!
The Mrs and I are rolling in Thursday Night, probably check out some of the Rockabilly haunts like the Vortex and Star Bar and then Its Tiki Time Friday and Saturday. We are really looking forward to this event. Working on our Tailgate Set Up and Menu.
Weird Question? Is is the Drive In Paved? If it is, I have to make stands for our torches.

The Drive In is paved. Star Bar, yes, Vortex, no. Look into the Earl for 'billy music too.

Ok, so I hate to be the only one posting and sounding ike such a dork, but..
Is everyone staying at the Hilton?
This is our first Tiki event. We are old veterans of the RAB weekender stuff, Viva Las Vegas, Heavy Rebel, Blood, Sweat and Gears and so on, so I am curious as to the whole thing.

The Hilton is the best place to stay for Trader Vic's 30th.
I've stayed there a few times, and love that I can zoom up the elevator to my room when I've reached my Mai Tai limit!!!

The Hilton is where everyone will stay and should stay - the $89 rate given for the event is unheard of and I was very happy that they were so gracious!

After the Drive In you should most definitely try to make it over to the Star Bar for Rocket 350, they should be hitting the stage around midnight! And if you're in town on Wednesday the 26th head to the Earl for the Buck Owens tribute - Sonoramic Commando is playing and they are fantastic!

See you in just 2 1/2 wks!

The Cooktail Preachers and the Haole Kats are on the road!

Johnny Knox is tuning his guitar!

Me and King Kukulele are packing our bags to fly out tomorrow!

Christie is on her way right now!

Everything is coming together for the big bash this weekend...

DON'T MISS IT!

For those of you still in the dark...

(copied and pasted from our MySpace page):




" Trader Vic's in Atlanta is one of the most spectacular authentic vintage Tiki restaurants in the USA. It was the last of the original 1940s-1970s era Trader Vic's to be built in the USA, and it is one of the very best.

We are celebrating it's 30th anniversary on April 28 and 29, 2006.

The Friday, April 28 festivities will be held at Atlanta's Starlight Drive in and will include a Tikirific double feature (Island of the Lost Women and Beach Party), a performance by Atlanta Rockabilly legends Johnny Knox and Hi-Test, Master of Ceremonies King Kukulele from Los Angeles, and much more.

Deck your vehicle out like a roving Tiki bar and win a prize for best in show. Also visit Knox's "Trailer Vic's", a mobile Tiki bar in a trailer! Bring your ukulele for a singalong, and don't forget to bring the marshmallows to roast with your picnic dinner.

Visit Trader Vic's afterwards for late night cocktails and a warm up for Saturday's big birthday bash!

On Saturday April 29, we move to Trader Vic's at the Altanta Hilton, for the main event. Chicago's astounding Cocktail Preachers are making the trek south entertain you with their custom surf-exotica sounds, and Florida's own amazing Haole Kats will be there to play their swingin' hapa haole (Hawaiian) tunes. King Kukulele will continue to entertain. We'll also have hula dancers from Hula Halau Kapilialoha with special guest, Richard Klaunan, plus a Tiki art show and auction, and much, much more.

Mai Tais are only $4.50.

Dinner reservations will be nescessary if you want to eat, so make your reservation NOW.

If you don't want dinner, just show up for the show any time you like!

Cover charge is $10 per night, payable at the door. Admission on Saturday is free if you have dinner at Trader Vic's, Call NOW to make your dinner reservation, it will DEFINITELY fill up.

Out of town guests may take advantage of a special $89 room rate at the Atlanta Hilton (the hotel that Trader Vic's is in) all weekend. Call the hotel and use code "PR" to get the rate. (404) 659-2000.

This event is being produced by Tikikiliki Productions who are responsible for the legenday Tiki Torch Nights events at Trader Vic's in Atlanta, and at the Mai Kai restaurant in Florida, as well as the big kahuna of all Tiki events, the Hukilau.

Also involved in event coordination is Tiki Road Trip productions, aka James Teitelbaum - author of the books Tiki Road Trip and Big Stone Head, producer of Tabu Tiki Nights at the Chicago Trader Vic's, and entertainment director of Hukilau 2005 and 2006.

Holey Moley, this party was a gas.

Pics coming soon!

All of you who were at the Drive-in will remember this gem:

"You will experience physical collapse!"


And the quote of the night in the Haole Kats' after party last night was
(tied):

[singing]
"In the room 2524..."
[/singing]

and:

"SHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"

Yowza!

Thanks a lot to all who came out - it was a great time!
