Kick off the summer right with Kustom Kars and Tiki Bars!

This is the first event of the season for
Wizzard Road Shows and the first Tiki Eyeball event. It promises to be a great weekender in the heartland of America. Great bands, vendors, rods and fun. I am bringing a motley crew of carvers together to show their skilz and spread the gospel of tiki to the masses. Expect a great room party with me and Basement Kahuna mixing up the cocktails. Lake Surfer is haulin his big and lovely sculptures down and throwin it down artic north style.

More details to come. I can't wait to explore this very out of the way, vintage tiki establishment, AND the Tiki Truck Stop!

Swanky, there is NOTHING at the Tiki Truck Stop to see. At all. Their cool vintage sign was removed a few years ago, and that was that.

Too bad about their choice of weekend for this - it conflicts with the bigger event in relatively nearby Green Bay. Hope that doesn't hurt attendance. Sucks that all the greasers will have to choose between a RAB festival and a car show!

You'll love the Aku Tiki Room.
In a lot of ways it reminds me of your own 'local' Tiki temple, the Omni Hut.

Me?
I have to miss both events - I'll be in Germany (I know, I am just trying to imitate Sven, missing out on summer Tiki events because I am in Germany).

Yeah, I was told the Tiki Truck Stop is just a name. I didn't realize it was the same weekend as Green Bay.

Are any TCers going to the Green Bay event...I was planning to head over (just 90 miles)
for the rockabilly and 50s music fest (and the car show of course). If you need info check
the website for Oneida casino...and hit the link for music events.

They'd better have my Hennessey and chilled Cristal and deli trays up in that cell waiting for me, too. I'll put in for two more, Freddy.

Anybody have any more info on this, i.e., exactly where it's being held, places to stay, etc? The website doesn't seem to have been updated beyond the initial flyer.

TT

Not sure when the site will be updated. The main event is at the Econolodge Peru Hotel, Peru, Illinois. Friday is the Poker Run to the Aku Tiki for dinner. Bands are being booked and updates soon.

Talked to Wizzzz tonight. The host hotel has changed for the better so we have indoor vendor space and a bar with area for bands. Java is helping out with the pin-up contest. We are working on a bus to take folks to and from the AKu TIki so you don't have to worry about driving at all. We are also working on a Mystery Drink ceremony raffle at the Aku Tiki. Java and I will be DJing throughout the weekend and at the Aku Tiki. Tiki carving demos by Basement Kahuna and Lake Surfer as well as those guys selling their cool stuff.

I have suffered through trying to get the local bars to make a tropical drink menu for the weekend, so I am going to either help them with a Mai Tai that is simple and easy for them, or, I may be able to get back there and mix drinks myself along with Basement Kahuna. We'll see if that's legal.

Ramping up as we get closer. Should be a fun time and a diverse group. Once we get closer, we'll take a head count and coordinate a nice hospitality room for the ohana.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, the Aku TIki is using this event to celebrate their 40th anniversary! This is a great chance to make it to this classic tii bar!

Java of Java's Bachelor Pad is organizing the Pin Up contest at the Tiki Eyeball. You can get all the information at the Yahoo group, or at his site.

He and I will be DJing throughout the event, and in particular, at the Aku Tiki to set the right Exotica mood.
