we should be there about the same time, maybe a bit earlier...depends on what we're finding at the antique barns along the way....drinks sound good.

New poster, long time tikier. My brother and I were at Exotica 2005 and I have been to a few of the Wednesday evening events at the now defunct Trader Vics in Chicago - those were a lot of fun. Anyway, my brother and I will be attending and would love to hook up with you. We really want to catch the bus but probably won't make it on time. Maybe we will see you at the Aku Tiki. If this weekend is anthing like the ad promises it should be pretty wild. Hope to see you there.

Here's a pic of the Aku Tiki...

Way nice... The only bigger Witco fountain I've seen was at the Hawaiian Inn. More later.

Yes, but you have Swanky in the back seat with you instead of Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan.
