just a quick thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Fury for inviting us and having one of the best parties we have been to. It was nice meeting some old friends and some new ones. Thanks again and hope to see you two soon.

Bongofury is such a fraud, he acts all gruff and tough but he put together the most awsome TiKi village that I have ever seen, invites a small army over, making sure nobody had an empty glass or plate, and in the middle of it all he says. " I really don't like people" Yeah, right! What a wonderful day and evening, blessing us and lovin on everyone! Mrs. Fury never sat down the entire time, truly a total expression of Aloha! Thnak you so very much for an incredible experience. What time next weekend?

Thanks Bongo and Mrs. Fury for hosting such a nice party. The place looks AWESOME!! It was great seeing all of you again who I already knew and nice meeting those of you whom GROG hadn't met before.Thanks Polynesiac for the tiki pendant
and Tikitony for the print.
Sorry GROG couldn't stay longer, but once Chongolio passed- out on the bridge where GROG had originally intended to pass- out, GROG figured GROG's plans were screwed.
Still, it was a most excellent International Tiki Day celebration.

We would like to thank all of you that came from near and far to help make International Tiki Day and the re-opening of the Rincon Room such a smashing success. TikiTony did a great job on the entrance, TikiTikiBoom was a whirlwind of activity and helped out a ton, all the guest bartenders, Al-ii, Kick-The Reverb, TikiBird, Doctor Z, and the ever lovely Whale Rider who spent triple duty on deck while I bailed out after making a few margaritas (????) and shots early on. No Bongwater Cocktails this time. BigTikiDude and Johnny Velour manned the grill. Thank you all for the lovely gifts, our neighbors, the Camarillo Police Department, the Glasgow Tiki Shakers, the very entertaining foam turd, and again everyone that came to our edge of the tiki world. Special thanks to Polynesiac for the cool neckwear, TikiTony and Rob Roy for the ITD prints and Smogbreather (who was there in spirit) for providing the logo mugs (unsolicited) from Mrs. Fury's graphic arts skills of my chickenscratch design. Al-ii helped in the kitchen the next day for the dozen or so overnighters and kept the blue pancake tradition alive. Chongholio slept (?) with the fishes. The party is only as good as the people that attend and I would have you all back in a heartbeat. Happy Birthday everyone, I hope you had as much fun as we did! Please post your pics. Aloha and Mahalo!

my oh my, Dat sho am good.
Pictures are great, and we would all love to see and be able to have more.
But nothing really captures the feel and vibe and beauty of actually being there.
What an amazing place. a slice of paradise if I may say.
Thanks again to the Fury's for having all of us up there. We all really put the
Rincon Room, and the House also thru its paces, and it came thru in flying colors.
I would also thank Ron for letting some of us crash there. I was too drunk to put up the tent, and nabbed the very comfy, and Long( if it fits me, it's long) couch in the Rincon Room( bar).
What a time we had. The very best of times.

Thank you very much to Mr. and Mrs Bongofury for the wonderful time. I had a BLAST! Also thanks to all the tiki peeps I had the pleasure of interacting with (and the ones that I unfortunately never got a chance to hang with) - you're all a very fine bunch of upstanding tiki snobs...er... aficianados!
and YEOWZAH! what a back yard! that hut is my dream hut. I could sit on that throne for hours. Amazing work by the fury's, ona and tikitony. The entarnce, the hut, the waterfall, the pond, the bridge, the tiki torches and THE FISH! and with the live sounds of the excellent Glasgow Tiki Shakers, it was the perfect spot to relax. Too cool. THanks for opening it up to all of us.
Dawn - those pics are great! thanks for being a shutterbug! anyone else have any shots?
and for those that waited for me to arrive and didn't get one of the commemerative necklaces (I am SOOOOO sorry!), I'm making another run of them. If you were at the ITD party and didn't get a pendant and want one, please PM me. I'm compiling a list to see how many to make.
OMG! I'm on Instagram!

Wow did I really just take a road trip to heaven. This last weekend was straight out of some kinda crazy dream that ended much too quickly. Big Kine Mahalos to Mr & Mrs Fury (for EVERYTHING!!!), Tiki Tony, Polynesiac, The Glasgow Tiki Shakers, the guest bartenders, food and booze bringers, and everybody who pitched in. Another big ol Thanky to all the fine folks who attended, shared the laughs and smiles to also help make the evening better than a fried slice of gold. This party was such an unexplainable good times that words will never do it justice. The Furies and Onatiki have really taken the backyard tiki bar to a new level and it is simply awe inspiring the amount of hard work and detail that went into the new Rincon Room. The Glasgow Tiki Shakers played amazing sets of choice covers and originals that helped seal the deal as an ITD that will be hard to beat. I got to meet a few more TC peeps and put faces to the names and see some of the old freinds again. Hope to see some of you at Hooptylau in September. One more big ass thanks to Hula Hula for driving both to and fro on our mile pounding mission from Monterey Bay.
Thanks for postin' the Pics Dawntiki!
