Thanks Swanky for the plug. Here's all the info...

Attention all midwest pin-up girls! Java's Bachelor Pad, home of the JBP Cheesecake Contest and co-producer of Mondo Lounge Atomic Frolic, is hosting a LIVE pin-up contest during the Tiki Eyeball hot rod show in Peru, Illinois, May 18-20.

We are looking for pin-up girls to come out for the weekend and compete for the title of Miss Tiki Eyeball. Events include a camera club pin-up photo op for all the girls on Saturday afternoon.

The Tiki Eyeball show will be held at The Peru Inn, 1840 May Road, Peru, Illinois; and The Aku-Tiki Room 2314 Hwy 34, Kewanee, Illinois.

The winner of Miss Tiki Eyeball will win a collection of great prizes from Bowlingshirt.com/ Sports Pin-ups/ CruisinUSA.com, Retro-A-Go-Go!, ProLighters.com, Pasties by Gothfox, and a full page color pin-up in Wizzz Magazine, just to name a few! The winner will also go on to compete at the end of the summer for the grand prize including a cover shot on Wizzz Magazine!

If you want to compete for the title of Miss Tiki Eyeball, sign up now at the Wizzard Roadshows Pinups Yahoo Group:

Just got word that the tiki party bus from the Peru Motel to the Aku Tiki is a go! Forget about driving. Just get on the bus, socialize with the ohana and arrive at the vintage 1967 tiki bar! No maps, no worries!

Now, we will be looking into the possibility of putting entertainment on the bus and mixing a batch of warm up Mai Tai's for the trip so we all arrive in the right "mood".

It just keeps getting better and better...

Details are being added to the
website.

Good news Swanky. Given the distance, and the cocktailing, I think this is definitely the way to do it!

One of the sponsors paid for the bus. I mean, literally bought a bus. Working on another sponsor to do the paint job and the pinstippers will do their magic. It's gonna be a big green monster tiki bus from, well, I don't know where. But it'll be fun and inexpensive.

Thanks Tipsy. I'll look into how we'll handle that. There may already be a raffle for the registered car folks. This should be for ticket holders. I might just add a puffer fish lamp to the mix myself. You make some very cool stuff. Much appreciated.

The Tiki Party bus has been painted. The pinstrippers get it next! Oh, and did I mention the price for the bus trip to and from the Aku Tiki? No? FREE! Your $25 registration fee gets you a goody bag with an event t-shirt and lots of other cool stuff, by itself worth $25, and the weekend's entertainment, and puts you in the drawing for free goodies and on the bus. T'will be fun!

To answer a question I received via PM for everyone:

Please mention you are booking the hotel for the Eyeball when you contact the hotel. You should get a reduced rate of $46 per night.

Here's yet another reason to come out to the Tiki Eyeball. Kay O'Hara, one of the best pin-up models out there today, will be joining us in Peru and helping out with the Miss Tiki Eyeball pin-up contest. Talk about a blonde bombshell! You can see more of this gal at my site, Java's Bachelor Pad: http://www.javasbachelorpad.com/kayohara.html

See you there!

This weekend!

Basement Kahuna and I will be chopping logs live and in person. I've got a 5 foot chunk that will be a tiki before the weekend is over!

I'm also kicking off a summer of vending at this event with all new goodies for 2007!

Stop by, talk story and pick up something new for your little slice of paradise!

See you this weekend!

-Dave

I can't wait to see you and everybody else and meet some new fiends like Tipsy. Weather looks perfect. Tiki bus is painted crazy ass green and will be pinstripped like a mofo too. Should be all kinds of fun. No telling what we can cram in my car to sell at this event. Get it there before Hukilau. First picks!

I have not heard what time things are officially getting started on Friday. I did hear that the Tiki bus is leaving for the Aku at around 6p Friday eve(from the hotel in Peru).
