The opening gallery night was super fun...i took a lot of photos, but now must get some shut-eye before the big Home Bar Tour in a few short hours. But first, back by popular demand, the underground extremely limited, ultra rare Jet City Junket Poster:




Only those who go will know how this day plays out!!

Here's one photo. I was actually trying to get a shot of Reido (very nice Canadian!) and he was feeling camera shy (I'll get him yet!) so he took one of me in front of the Shag paintings for all you Shag fans. I have lots more fun photos though...especially of Dogbytes. I'd better go recharge my camera battery...

Good thing we survived that, Woofmutt, because now we'll always have that really special taxi cab ride home to cherish. I'm still wondering what our driver said to the other taxi driver right in front of us in a foreign tongue.

i think i'd better go check my photos now and see how I did with preserving everything. Everyone else who crawled out of the fire is apparently still going to party on today... tiki people have nothing but spirit and energy!

Huge thanks to Dogbytes for throwing this weekend together for all of us!! I think a grand time was had by all. Here's what we call the money shot in the biz:



Tiki-Bot has a newer, phatter version of my camera and we were admiring it along with Dogbytes and Tikiwahine.

More photos LATER...if there's an official photo thread I'll put them there.

before i even attempt to explain Tiki Inferno and prior to photoshopping the incriminating incidents.. i want to thank all the folks who made the Jet City Junket possible..and so much freaking FUN. 72+ hours of Ohana-maximus!

Woofmutt ~ even though i was not in charge, thanks for letting me bounce ideas off ya for hours on end, in yahoo messanger.. and for the FREE and FABULOUS pop culture trinketries on-the-bus raffle!!!

Seamus ~ for the many many raffle prizes and setting up the vending area

Sandra the busdriver for safely getting us up n down the Hills of Seattle.and keeping count of your passengers. bonus points for squeeking the big yellow bus around traffic circles and nutzo drivers!

Bad Mojo ~ for prizes and the honor of selling your excellent necklaces

Home Bar Hosts ~ Mr. Bytes, Selector Lopaka & Puamana, Monkeyskull, Cindy & John ~ for graciously opening your doors to 30+ people traipsing thru your abodes

The Islander Restaurant on Union St. (and my apologies to the Mercer Island tavern..) THREE CHEERS for the ONE bartender-waiter and hostess for feeding and providing drinks to nearly 40 people, with NO reservations..in 90 minutes ~ and to Selector Lopaka for helping me wait tables!

TikiWahine guest bartender extraordinaire!

After Party Hosts ~ Marlow and Jo-David, Dawn and Lisa - all i can say is "Holy S*it" and i cant even officially say that here! the collections in these homes defy description (so we'll post pix later)

Otto ~ thanks for moving the event to Seattle! The Roq and its staff ROCK.. i've never seen a more packed art venue.. ever! Lushy always fantastic.

All of the people aboard the bus ~ friends, old and new ~ thank you for wanting and supporting a Tiki Event. we broke even on the bus and we didnt misplace any riders (that i know of)!

words can't describe how happy i am to see how this Tiki Weekend turned out..everyone just went with the flow..and we packed in SO MUCH into such a short time!

elicia

if you dont see your name listed in my Thank Yous.. its only because i'm still floating on air.. my memory will return in a bit.. hopefully.

You know I wasn't serious, don't you? It's the sour grapes talking. I'm still bugged that circumstances conspired to keep me from going, but what can you do? Looks like an amazing time was had by all. For sure I'm gonna make it out to the raincoast next summer. Is Tiki Art Now 4 gonna be in Seattle?

absolutley.. Otto says Seattle is the place for Tiki Art Now 4... its never too early to plan!

we did miss you.. Lisa Petrucci's house was a Baby Boomer's Delight.. nearly every toy, game and doll from the 50's-70's..and film reels..halloween masks.. scarey clown paint by numbers mixed in with awesome original art.

i am really having a hard time finding the words to describe the weekend. surreal. jam-packed tiki, thriftstore, kitsch, hi and lowbrow, collector's paradise.

yeah i know.. pictures pictures.. gotta down/up load them tonight.. still recovering from all the fun..

elicia
