This story reminded me that I just got some of the mai tai bowls Gecko did for this bar. I wrote to him and he wrote back this:

Net-tiki howzit my braddah, long time I neva get to talk to my ohana from tc....running a resin and tiki mug business and being da only employee does not allow me to much time fo talk story anymore....just fo right now, I'll get back on there soon.

I had to adjust da shipping for everyone because my ebay lister put da wrong shipping cuz. It's only $15 for 2 mugs, not $20. K'den my braddah, t'anks planty, tell dem braddahs from tc I miss'um!! oh, I get some nice new desings at da end of da month including a buy it now limited edition mug that will be on ebay so when they go dat's it.

Shaka braddah Net!!!

You gotta love it when Gecko says braddah. Anyways the bowls look very nice, I cant wait to get them in my gubby little hands.

Ms. Annette, what a special lady and the oasis she created! It can never be replaced, it is her glow and warmth passed to each visitor. Hopefully the gods will smile upon her and the La Mariana to find the right person/s to carry her torch! Beautiful are my thoughts of time there, I hope to return soon.
Serene.

Alex I'll take bottom feeders for $200.00. Who said " Mug collectors are the bottom feeders of tiki"? Anyone?

Jeff If I had 3 MILLON bucks I would Not be looking for another restaurant,
Unless it was to eat in!

Since you are from California you will get one free math class.
Because Buzzy says you can't do simple mathematics.

I guess your right.

If you had 3 million dollars to blow this would be a good deal though. Just look at all the cool artifacts you could add to your home. Crap, you would need another home too!! HA!!

Oh well,

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

If you could move in upstairs, good deal. But just for the restaurant, and knowing they have this contingent lease coming up is a big issue. If you convert more of it to your home and just sort of have the business to allow you to live there, it might work out. $3 million for a big home like that is likely not a lot...

La Mariana is the last "true" Tiki lounge in this tropical paradise of Hawaii, .....
Paradise??
O.K. maybe "crack" is the new island "economy" in a place where a "family member" will daily rape another family member, and repeat offending thugs stomp on the heads of unconscious bike riders in Waianae ...as if it were just another baby luau.
That is precisely why Hawaii needs La Mariana.
Tiki's restaurant in Waikiki is lame except for some sparse- (but great Gecko) art. And I can't even think of another Tiki lounge in Hawaii.
So since it is a "known fact" that everyone in California is a mogul in the entertainment industry, and a rich bizillionaire, somebody, (somebody please!) hold off your penis enhancement surgery and cough up a measly 3 million from the back seat of your Hummer, and at least move La Mariana off of stinkin' Sand Island Road and closer to my house in Kailua.
Ahhhh, Kailua .....where there are still rainbows, and happy faces and unicorns............

Hmmmm, you have a good point. A fixer upper in CA (SF) is about 1 million...house in CA or wonderful tiki establishment in Nirvana. Jeez, if I had the cash it wouldn't be hard choice. I'm with HelloTiki...CA billionaires, awesome opportunity here!

Okay! If I win the $114 Million Mega Lotto Jackpot tonight, La Mariana is mine! If not, I hope somebody comes up with the dough before she dies and the state takes over.

My last trip to Oahu was about the same time I became a TC member, and I didn't even know about La Mariana. With our annual trips to Maui, we have been bypassing Honolulu (for some obvious reasons). BUT I feel we must make a side trip to Honolulu to visit La Mariana before it is sold and any changes made. Our next trip to Maui is planned mid to late November. I would love to meet Annette and Gecko there!
