Aloha Ohana!

You are cordially invited to attend a day and a night of island insanity, frivolity and hospitality.

Tiki Party

Saturday, July 1st
1pm-?
1901 E 47th Ave-Denver

*****$5 requested donation for the drinks*****

When you return from your revel on the Mysterious Island of the Tiki Finks, be sure to mark your calendars for the next installment of this summer's Denver Ohana Tiki madness is only a week away!

The site is a spacious converted library (now a home), located near the Denver Collesium. Parking is off street, but plentifull.

In the front yard-Luau games and revelry.
In the back yard-Food, Drinks, shade and more revelry.
Inside-Eleio's Lost Island Lounge and lot's of AC.
Everywhere-Great people, much fun, excellent food and cool Tiki and Beach tunes.

Children are welcome, but please keep in mind that this will be a party for adults.

Food:
Roast Whole Pig (cuban style)
"Samoan" Sweet Potatoes
Polynesian Rice
Pineapple Fruit Boats
Assorted Salads
Breads
Coconut Cake

Lost Island Lounge Menu:
Yellow Bird (From Colorado's eldest Tiki-esque establishment: The Original Castaways)
Banana Banshee
Rums and Cola
Tropical Beer (not sure what, this isn't my call)
Soft Drinks
Iced Tea
Specialty Concoctions??? (Is that a rumbling volcano I hear in the distance?)
*I wanted to add more drinks, especially those suggested by the Ohana, but we're trying to budget a day and night party for 100. Your requested $5 donation will be heartily accepted and may help expand our evening drink menu.

Luau Games:
Hula Hoops
Flamingo Ring Toss (only for a short while...I promise)
Best Hawiian Shirt
Limbo Contest

Again, as I said before, this will be the first Tiki experience for some of my party partners in crime and many of those attending, so your attendance is eagerly encouraged and your patience will be heartfully appreciated.

Lei Making Class-The ultimate expression of island welcome. The Little Grass Shack is offering a 1 Hr. lei making class at the party for $17 per person (nearly the price of the flowers alone!), from 3p-4p. A minimum of 10 people must RSVP by Friday, June 23rd, for the class to occur. Class attendees will create their very own single strand purple orchid leis, in addition to learning the customs and history of this time honored tradition. Denver Ohana, please PM me to RSVP.


Please contact me if you have any questions and I hope to see you there!

Mahalo!

Eleio:

Thanks for the invite! Looks like you are going all out.

At least one Fink will be there. My wife is a manager at Whole Foods and I can rarely suss her ever changing schedule.

Cheers!

T.F.

I hope she can make it, but no worries Fink. Sometimes life gets in the way of living.

Thanks for the kind words on our little shin-dig. I'm lucky to be working with some very good, very enthusiastic friends who seem to have caught the tiki bug.

BTW-It was great meeting you and seeing your shop today. Excellent selection of mugs, libations and expert advice. All that and your generous TC discount to boot. What more could I ask for? Your help has ensured that a volcano will definitely be appearing (at least in a limited sense) at the party.

Looking forward to visiting your island and meeting your tribe....next week. I don't know why I got this weekend and next confused.

Mahalo!

Ok.. The big shindig is only a week away so I thought I would put out a reminder and a little happy camper list for the bash.

#1. I strongly suggest that you have a good meal prior to the Luau. There will be plenty of snacks and goodies, but if you intend to take full advantage of the bar make sure that you are ready for it!!!

#2. Bring a picnic blanket because that will be your seat should you want to recline on the lawn during the entertainment. You can stash it in your vehicle until show time.

#3. Observe the weather and dress appropriately as this is mostly an outdoor event.

#4. Don't forget your favorite mug!

#5. Flip flops, sandalls and the like are adviseable.

#6. Bring your Aloha Spirit! AND HAVE FUN!!!!!!


Can't wait to see everyone!

T.F.

Looks like we are adding some xtra fun to the gig on Saturday. There will be Tiki Trivia for door prizes and videos for those who are interested, so brush up on the Tiki info and you could win some Tikiriffic prizes!

Aloha folks!

My wahine and I are eagerly looking forward to visiting the Mysterious Isle and seeing you all this weekend.

Just one thing I needed to bring up for next weeks party.

Anyone interested in taking part in the Lei making class needs to PM me by Friday. The $17 for the class (which includes the lei) will be due that Saturday. We have about half the number we need to have the class, so please let me know ASAP.

Thanks and Mahalo!

Hey all and especially the Finks- my wahine and I enjoyed the party last night. Lots of great people, fun, entertainment, conversation and drinks. My hat is off to the Jungle Cruise punch- a potent and delicious drink!!! I look forward to more Denver tiki events. Thanks again to Mr. Tiki Fink and his lovely wife.

I just wanted to chime in and thank the Finks for throwing an excellent party!

My wahine and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and appreciate all the effort made to make their mysterious island so welcoming and enjoyable. The drinks, games, food and entertainment were all top-notch.

Thanks also to Zulu for the trivia contest and supplying hard copies of the next Denver Tiki newsletter.

Mahalo and thanks again!

Think you've had enough Tiki excitement for the summer?

Think again.

The Denver Ohana: Summer of Tiki Madness continues!





The island feast is planned to occur sometime between 4-5.

Aloha attitudes, attire and tiki mugs will be most welcome!


May the winds fill you sails as you journey to our festive celebration.

See you there!
