Follow-up report on the 4/7 NYC tiki gathering:

Tiki Kollektor (Dave) and posse (Pattie, Marlin, and Joel) met Tonga-in-Chiki (John) and we rocked out at Otto's to The Clams, Bongo Surf, and The Octomen. All 3 bands were awesome but The Octomen were a surprise crowd fave. In one night we were treated to 3 different but equally cool versions of Walk Don't Run! Can you get too much Walk Dont Run? The room was energized! Rounds of mai tais, zombies and Otto's signature drink the "shrunken head" kept our table covered in tiki all night. By mutual agreement, the shrunken head (mai tai meets coconut) was voted our favorite Otto's drink!

We will be back there in May! (Mr. Neutron -- known for their seriously fast and tight surf guitar licks -- is on the schedule!) Hopefully more NYC TC'ers will join us.

Aloha Akbar,
Please think about coming by the NY Uke Fest April 26 - 29 at 155 First Ave (corner East 10th St) in Manhattan. The website is
www.nyukefest.com

There's FREE BEER all weekend, courtesy of Samuel Adams. Concert prices are very inexpensive, and Saturday and Sunday we have $5 tix during the day, and if you buy a uke from one of the vendors, you get your 5 bux back.

Just a reminder for all the Big Apple (and Garden State) tikiphiles out there that Otto's Shrunken Head at 538 E14th St (http://www.ottosshrunkenhead.com/index.html) will be hosting the once-a-month UNSTEADY FREDDIE'S SURF-ROCK SHINDIG at 10PM this Saturday, May 5th.

Who says Cinco de Mayo and tiki don't mix? Come join your tiki compadres for a night of twang, reverb, and fruity drinks...

Hasta,

Tonga-in-Chiki (John)

Sorry we can't make it to Otto's this weekend. Heading out to my old stompin grounds in Dallas for a shin-dig with the Tejas Ohana at the recently reborn Trader Vics (win one lose one).

Some of us were talking about getting together at Jade Island for eats sometime later this spring. Also for those truly adventurous souls you are welcome to trek west to Allentown in June for my annual birthday luau on the 23rd.

Hello NY/NJ tikiphiles. I dont mean to crash your thread here, but I was hoping to see a lot of you on our Tiki Tour this August. We've got some Tri-State ohana signed up but the more the merrier!

Here's a link to the thread

Or if you wanna just hit the site & sign up:

http://www.northeasttikitour.com

Only 6 spots left.

Hope to see some of you there!

The cover story in the latest issue of Time Out New York is on hipsters. The issue includes a short side article on truly hip things in NYC. But they're blind items so the hipness isnt immediately blown by exposure to the masses. Here's the hip music listing:

"Some say New Yorkers have big heads, but that’s not a problem at this out-of-the-way bar, where the kitsch factor is so high it becomes cool again. This goes double once a month, when you’ll find the surf music rising on the fringes of the concrete jungle. These cats mix reverence and irreverence into a potent cocktail—what else would you expect from a host who’s memorized the production credits from old Challengers’ B-sides?"

As if we didnt already know. Maybe I'll see some of you hipsters Saturday night.

New Yorkers (and vicinity) going to the Hukilau

If you want to get a headstart before you leave time,
there is a surf and twist party Wed. June 12
Info. at:
http://www.myspace.com/thewangdangdoodle

We have tix for Pink Martini that night but will try and stop in afterwards.

Or drop a line if you want to hook up in NYC another time before leaving town

Was it unusually crowded with hipsters?
