A great big mahalo to Holden for throwing such a fabulous shindig. (The Mai Tai water cooler was truly brilliant.)

Krustiki and ookoo lady huddling for warmth in the parking lot.

Sabu and PolyPop in front of the most astounding collection of new and classic Tiki Farm mugs.

Wes and Karen hanging out in the booth.

Crazy Al and his camera shy friend. (Sorry I didn't catch his name.)

Behind the bar.

Above the bar.

Across from the bar.

Next to the bar.

The front of the bar.

I heard that they will be posting some great pictures of the bar on the Tiki Farm website soon. I hope these will tide you all over in the meantime.

Nice pictures Tiki-Kate, and nice meeting you at Mugoomba. Thanks for throwing such an awesome shindig Holden. The tiki room looks great.I can't believe the magic that bamboo Ben performs. Good stuff.

What a weekend! I thought I'd peaked at Al's show ,then this bash comes around and creates an Ultra-Fun Weekend! Mahalos Holden for having the drive,vision, and resources to host such an incredible event! Mahalos Ben for
creating a State Landmark!Pictures do not do this structure justice! Beautifully over-the top! Magic happens once your feet hit that shag carpet! Tiki Road Trip needs to be updated, as this is a sight to Beholden!It was soooo great to meet new friends from all over the world as well as reconnecting with old ones! Too many great figures of the Tiki World to mention! It was like a Hall of Fame! At one moment it felt like adrenalin overload just from the excitement and friendliness of meeting so many of you!The dancers and Lil' Rev rocked the house and filled the parking lot with love and Ohana! And the food and drinks wereyum-yum! I'll post some pix tonight! This was a night I will never forget! A Million Thanks Holden!

Cheers to one of the greatest hosts of all times, HOLDEN. Many thanks for letting me have the chance to invade the space you call work for a day! If that is your workplace, I must be in the wrong field! haha, Anyhow, me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time. Mugoomba is aliving art space! I couldn't believe the amount of items in the amount of space used. That bar is absolutley breathtaking. I congratulate Ben for an awesome display of workmanship! The Mai Tais & the food were excellent! Your choice for the entertainment couldn't have been better for this event. From the King drumming away(I thought that was really good) to the many dances the girls put on. To the amazing little girl who had all attention captured with her dance numbers to the 11 year old uke player. All this leading up to the tin pan uke player, it was a spectacular day! You are truly a master among men, Holden! It was great seeing you again, and I'll talk to you soon!

I need to use spellcheck sometimes!

Wow, Holden great party and congratulations on Mugoomba...it is amazing! I especially love the tanks in the bar, something I had hoped to do someday here at home. And now I know I can plop a couple of my Tiki Farm glazed mugs in my tank, right? And thanks for including us at the bar in the 360 shots for the website.

Bamboo Ben- Mugoomba is beyond my expectations, a real jaw dropper man!

Tiki-Kate- nice pics. I didn't take any so I am glad you posted those. One of these times I'll get meet my TC neighbors, you and also PolyPop.

Unfortunately we had to cut out early, before the entertainment started, since we still had a few stops to makes on the long drive home...

Hays off to Holden on a great bar opening, very nice job on the decor.
The Mai Tai's in the water bottle was over the top. I am glad my water guy doesnt deliver those.
I'd be in real trouble...

Here's some VR's of the bar
You will need quicktime to view. Download here if you dont have:
They might take a lil bit to download so be patient


You can right click to download these and see bigger.
Shift/Alt or Shift/Control will enable you to zoom in/out

I hope to bring you more VR's from more events!

Hold it! I could've met GROG by being a little more forward? But, but... No one there was mesomorphic enough, let alone horripilatious enough, to be GROG.

For the awesome party, for letting me set up a table to vend at your wonderful event!

It was the capper to an incredible Tiki filled weekend for me after logging in 1050 miles driven in 4 days!

Special thanks to ALL my Tiki Ohana who either made a purchase from me this weekend and helped soften the expensive trip down to SoCal or anyone who just said HELLO so that I can put a face with the TC names!

Can't wait to see what you come up with next Holden!

Mahaloz to Holden! It was worth the trip from Flourdough to see that vintage bar back to life as it should be, it still performs like a champ...I'd say there'll be no more gathering of dust or cobwebs for that baby! It is in the perfect place with the perfect owner! Who else but THE Rev.BambooBen to give it a right proper home to reside in?...Mahaloz to you both!
So glad to see so many friends, and to get the chance to meet a few new ones.
