Wow! DJ Terence Gunn and Sweetpea, thank you so much for the recommendations! I didnít even think to look at condo/house rentals which seem to be the way to go. Iíll have to remember to look beyond the big guys like hotels.com, etc. I just wish we had more time to stay and visit Seattle and Trader Vicís again. Such a beautiful city!

Melintur and Tikimama Iím sorry to hear you wonít be making it. I was looking forward to drinking with you guys where you had time to relax and just have fun! Letís meet up soon for drinks and food. We have a great drinking porch!

For all who are going to the Seattle Home Tiki Bar Tour, my wife and I are just getting a new Tiki Business off the ground, called TIKI HUNTER, and will be making our first appearance as vendors for this event. We will have many carved pieces, Tikis, Masks, Tiki Necklaces, Hawaiian style shirts and maybe a few Tiki/Hot Rod type items as well. Not a lot or anything too big since this is a small event. We want to eventually be able to offer a variety of Vintage and Custom pieces.
I will post when our website is up and running!
If you have requests of items you'd like to see more of, questions, comments or suggestions we would gladly welcome them!

Mahalo,

Dr.TikiMojo

I'd suggest you at least get some pix posted in Marketplace, Dr.TikiMojo, before coming up to the Jet City. Not everyone in the area plans to attend this event and you may be able to arrange some sales with people you wouldn't otherwise see.

Including woofmutt himself, who is bearing me a grudge for not letting him perform his circle of flame nude trapeze act over Monkey Skull's back yard. I told him, 'Woofmutt, if you fell 25 feet from the sky and landed in the fish pond, not only would most of the water splash out of the pond onto the tour guests, tiki torches and BBQ grill, but you'd also frighten the fish; and we can't have that'.

In reality everything cool seems to happen all at once. With any luck I'll be at Hotrodaramathose days. Rockin'. Cuz I like to rock.

Woohoo. More Travellin' for Travellin' tiki!

I'm planning to come down a day or two early if anyone wants to hang out Friday. Just lemme know ASAP so I can also plan time to spend with relatives down there.

I'll be vending Saturday with more Kavakon CDs & earrings for anyone who missed out at the NW Tiki-Kon--and prints of course... ooh, plus my first little painting experiments on velvet. They're a little rudimentary, and small... but a taste of more ambitious pieces to come I hope.

Cheers & Aloha & see you all there!
Heather

i'm available friday! one thing to consider, is that the I90 bridge will be closed for the Airshow(s)

Friday, August 4- 12:45 p.m. Ė 2:40 p.m. (practice show)
Saturday, August 5- 12:45 p.m. Ė 2:40 p.m. (full show)
Sunday, August 6- 12:45 p.m. Ė 2:40 p.m. (full show)

The Seattle Home Bar Tour on August 5th & 6th can still accomodate up to 5 more people (I got a slightly larger bus for the second day, just in case of last minute attendees). So if you were thinking you'd like to attend, but that the tickets may all be sold out, now's your chance!

Aloha, Folks!
Everything is running smoothly and as planned, and the weather promises to be sunny and favourable both days of the event. I look forward to meeting all the new faces, and to seeing again the familiar ones.

A big mahalo to all the attendees for making this event possible! And a special mahalo to the home bar owners -- especially Pete of Pete's Monkey Skull Voodoo Lounge, who has gone far beyond his duty. And, of course, big mahalos to the vendors for coming all this way; and to Lushy for the freshly poured musical Mai-Tais! As well, I'd like to extend a big mahalo to Nick of Tiki Mag, as well as Rum Demon.

I'll be too busy hosting, DJing, playing percussion, and grilling to take any photos; but I do know there will be several camera-ready attendees. Look for forthcoming photos of the event soon.

Okole Maluna!

The tiki gods must be angry with me, Iím so bummed to say that the Mr. and I will not be making it up to lovely Seattle after all. We just got back from the vets emergency room and will need to medicate and babysit our old man cat for the next week. Not much fun but at least it happened before we left instead of while we were gone!

So please have a drink for us. Hell, have MANY drinks for us. Iíve been looking forward to this weekend since the NW Tiki Kon ended. Hopefully the tiki gods will be in a better mood come September for the Art Show.

Nighty nite TCerís.

The gathering is over and I will be the first to declare it a smashing success. I will post pix as soon as I can but a hearty thanks goes out to Terence and the rest who made it all possible. See you again next year for the 2nd Annual Seattle Tiki Bar Crawl

Mahalo

I had a grand time. Thanks to Terence, thanks to all the hosts and vendors, thanks to Lushy, and special thanks to Debby, Lisa, and Starr (did I get those right) for jumping in on the Chicken Lopaka and other rescues.

And now let's take advantage of that new photo loading feature ...

Before their set in the Monkey Skull Voodoo Lounge, Lushy discovers the power of the Amazing Fez-o-matic.



The Lushy performance was enjoyed by all, but probably most by the Soviet Shriner contingent.



Meanwhile, some of us tiring of the Hollywood attitude of Selector Lopaka.



I wanted to capture how nice this Ryden -- with custom-made Tiki-Riviera frame -- looked on a red wall. Hmmmm, where else has red walls?



One corner of the exotic ZanziBar back room.



Water feature off the shady deck of the ZanziBar.



The Professor pouring drinks at the Castaway Lounge -- just before the Skipper showed up and all hell broke loose.



Sweetpea pitches in to run the blender at the Castaway.



Our host tends bar at the Shrunken Head Lounge.




I have no explanation for this.

In reference to the last picture: I tried to warn Sweet-pea not to open the
hatch, but she didn't listen and as a result was bitten twice. The one on the
right looks especially ferocious!

Thanks so much to Terence and all the Tiki Home Bar Owners for such a great weekend.
It was nice meeting so many friendly and welcoming Tiki-philes!We really enjoyed it and wish we could have stayed to see all the sites on Sunday, but, alas, an early morning seminar today (Monday) necessitated an early departure.

Terence, the fully-packed CD took us all the way to Vantage in Central Washington, just before Wenatchee, and made the drive back to Idaho much more pleasant.
