Hey Everybody!

Thanks for partying with us on Saturday night! It was great to see the Hut hoppin with so many tiki enthusiasts. Thank you so much to Suzy for being our guest bartender and to DJ Lee for spinning. I also have to thank my staff Trevor and Myriah for an awesome job. Hope to see you all at the next Art Show!

Mahalo,

Mulatiki

I was wondering why you two kept sneaking out together. I guess now we know! You make such a cute couple with the matching glasses and goatees!

It turns out that on that same night, Hollywood was preparing for its own little awards show. We drove past part of the red carpet on the way home. Note the smaller Oscars in full body condoms at the bottom left of the picture.



Thanks again for a great night everybody! I couldn't find a single "Hoity-Toity" in the whole bunch of the SoCal TC Ohana that I met that night!

Um, I was there too...how is it that I didn't see a single one of these people? Was I in a time warp? Where is my beautiful wife and family? This is not my big automobile!

Is there some other Tonga Hut in another alternate universe where Suzy bartends and I don't see anyone I know? I got there at midnight. Got the flyer for the next art show, spoke with Atomikitty, had a Ginger Snap and saw no one.

I was at the Lava lounge earlier that evening, had a couple of Cosmopolitans, watched an enchanting mod band called the Modlins, then some heavy rock-n-rollers came on stage and me and my roommate decided it was time to hit the REAL party at the Tonga Hut.

Only I passed through a wormhole somewhere and ended up in the THE TONGA HUT IN THE PARALLEL WORLD!

Hi to everybody I apparently missed. See you all at the next gathering, unless I pass through another time portal and end up on the other side of the mirror.

Mahalo Suzy, email me about that show on the 16th, I've got a hot painting to reveal to the mug collectors of the world.

Nothing like a picture of a flaming poop to kill a thread. . . . : )

Seriously though, MUCHO MUCHO MAHALO to all the FINE and WONDERFUL OHANA who came out to support our very first TONGA HUT TIKI NIGHT!!!!!

What a great turn out! It was such a pleasure to be mixing up luscious libations for all my favorite tiki friends again! It was also a great night for making some new tiki and Tonga hut fans, and I thank you all for the fun, positive vibe that made everyone feel welcome. The spirit of aloha was truly alive. : )

LET'S ALL THANK ANA AND JEREMY OF THE TONGA HUT for all their hard work in restoring the bar, embracing the tiki scene, and giving us free reign on tiki night!
A VERY big thanks also to Trevor and Myriah of all their awesome bartending, hard work and great attitudes. I couldn't have done it without them!

Another HUGE Thank You to that hot wax spinning Svengali-(only not in an evil way)-DJ LEE! Your music make me happy. : )

Okay, this is starting to read like an Oscar acceptance speech, but I am just so tickled and appreciative with the turn out, and only wish I had more time that night to chat with all of you and thank you in person! So bear with me!
THANK YOU!!!!!!-Grog, Squid and Mrs. Squid, JenTiki-great to meet you!, Little Lost Tiki, Tyger Jimmy and the Mrs', Mahbookie and Jen-great to see you guys again-thanks for bringing friends AND you own tiki mugs!, Cheeky Girl, Sabu, Bora Boris, Woo Hoo and Soccertiki, the elusive Shipstrader, Hiphipahula, PiPhiRho, Dibroc, Son of Kelbo, Tiki Josh, Trader Tom, Pinstriper Johnny and the lovely Miss Courtney, Squirrely and friends, The Aloha Currents from Sacromento-thanks for joining us!, Tiki Cutie and THOR-thanks for coming out! We'll figure out the parallel universe thing for next time so you can join us! : ) Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most awesome KIRBY! I hope you and Miss Polly had a great time! : )

Whew!. . . If I forgot anyone, send me a message and I'll buy ya a drink next time. : )

Also, for all of you that didn't make it out, or didn't grab a flyer, we revealed the amazing mystery artist for the next TONGA HUT ART SHOW-Friday March 16th!


JUST TWO WEEKS AWAY! TELL A FRIEND AND SAVE THE DATE FOLKS!

Also. . .the NEXT Tonga Hut TIKI NIGHT will be Saturday, March 16th. . . The theme will be BLUE HAWAII. . .more on that later!

Kudos to you guys for not only saving, but giving a 4-star resto to the Tonga Hut.
You've really brought the scene back to stellar quality. Libby and I will be there, along with our "straw-bending-artist-extraordinare", DaveJ. (a blackbelt, so OjaiTimo doesn't have to worry about getting clubbed if he joins us for libations at our booth).

Last Tiki Night I was totally jazzed to hear the DJ suddenly spin-up a cover of John Barry's "The Golden Horn" from "From Russia With Love". Oooo. You can't get that kind of sonic eclectica just anywhere.

Cheers and aloha,
SOK
