I mean, RUMnotyourBUDDY!!!!
Sorry you had to leave early; I so enjoyed getting to meet you, and I look forward to another tiki evening with you again.

And we won't share a tiki puka puka. We'll have a Coke. Maybe a ginger ale.

It was a fun evening, made better by getting to hang with you for a bit.
'Til next time!

Oh MAN that was so not fair, that NEVER happens - I was having a great time meeting everyone! Kenike, so glad you pulled that together. I'll post pics in about a week. Unkle John, I will have to get with you next time, I didn't get to talk to you. Benehune, I hope we can get together the next time we are in San Antonio, isn't that funny that you went to high school with Shawna?

I have been doing so well on Weight Watchers and didn't want to blow it so I drank a lot of water but barely ate all that day. We got there at 6 in time for one round in the bar for seating by 7. We had our Scorpion Bowl for four, and then my Tiki Puka Puka (which I also shared), and then we still weren't seated so I ordered the next Tiki Puka Puka and didn't even drink much of it. It didn't seem like I drank too much but with waiting too long to eat, WOW my fun was cut short. I truly felt bad that several ladies were spending any time coming to my assistance and not fully enjoying their own experience!

Formikahini you are a delight! Thanks!

We met a few times that night
But all is cool in my book sweetheart, by 9 o'clock I was starting to fall sleep. It's how my body has gotten accustomed to working again, not because it was boring, which it was not! I felt like I was a zombie after nine. But yes, we will meet up again and catch up. Julie wanted to talk more too.. infact Saturday night really got her hooked with the tiki-bug. We should try to have a home bar tour. I know that there is enough people in DFW that we can do it. If anyone ever heads towards Lubbock give me a shout, you are welcome to stop by mi casa.

Wow, sorry Rumbuddy, I didn't realize. I guess that all slipped under my radar. Even so, I came away from the evening with the same understanding:
"Beware the Tiki Puka Puka!"
We came into the bar late, and Monica commented to me about those gardenias in your drinks, but ordered a Peachtree Punch, then a Potted Parrot. Later, I recall your husband standing behind you in the bar, wearing a tight smile of grim resignation, as you were putting your hands on on your face, and shouting, "My face feels weird. I can't feel my teeth!" All you ladies erupted in laughter, and, in response to that endorsement, Monica ordered a Tiki Puka Puka. She finished most of it, went to the restroom, and before she got back, they took us to our tables and bussed her drink. She complained that she hadn't finished it, and they gave her a fresh one. Then she ordered another. And another.
Now, Monica can drink me under the table (think Karen Allen, in Raiders). But she was definitely showing signs beyond what I'd expect after only 4 or 5 drinks. I heard her utter some funny non-sequiturs in the table conversations - she didn't seem to notice that about 20 minutes had passed since they were last discussing what she was commenting about.
Well, after seeing you gals getting so hammered on those Pukas, I looked it up. There's the equivalent of 4 ounces of rum in it, about like 3 typical bar drinks, these days. That's like 2 Mai Tais. Despite the gardenia, it's a pretty aggressive drink. Trying to collect a bouquet is asking for trouble.
So, in your defense, the T.P.P.'s definitely the kind of drink that tends to blind-side you, anyway. On an empty stomach,... you never had a chance.

More Pictures! They are a little bit redundant of what has already been posted, but the more the merrier


Thanks Dobrolic, I believe you took these for us.

Ahhhhhh the Scorpion Bowl


Tikiphiles at work

The "Kodak Moment" - She says, "I went to high school with you. I know your sisters, and I know your mother!" He says, "I don't remember...Were we bad?" She says, "Oh yes. Very bad!"

At Trader Vic's, even the water is more fun.


While you drink rum, you have more teeth but you feel them less

Watch out for sneaky puka sippers

Everybody loves Tiki Puka Puka!

Rumbuddy, we had a blast meeting you and can't wait until our next visit to Dallas so we can see you guys again. Meeting more TC people was great. My wife now knows why I enjoy tiki so much: it is a whole culture.
More pix to come, and maybe a story if I can remember one.
