Hey! Calling all Tiki Centralites that would love to go down in TIKI History as being one who assisted in bringing Tiki back to residential Living!

Next Saturday, January 25, Me and Big Al are planning to go to King KuKu's and help him build/rip apart something (not necessarily in that order).

Afterwards we may tip a couple at Tiki Ti or Bigfoot Lodge (Ku only know!)

If you're interested, and you are sober (at that time that is) please post so we can decide what/how many projects to complete.

PolyPop,

As a member of the Secret Tiki Society (STS), you're already expected to help.

Everyone Else: I'll post King KuKu's address and meeting time towards the end of this week.

Just bring yourselves and some sort of tool (?)

This could possibly be the feel-good movie of the Year - "One man, in an attempt to recreate the Tiki Suburbia of yesterday, hocks his life away in order to finance the Lamoyne Lanai. Watch his triumphs and disasters, as he builds his dreams"

I just came back from the LeMoyne Lanai. Here are some of things I noticed:

Kuke's biggest issue is he's probably gonna need some help peeling nasty Sheet Linoleum glued to the hardwood wood floor - if anyone has heat guns or scrapers or something that will help that along? In addition, he's gotta get a bunch of staples and nailed tack strips out of the same floor so the refinisher can get in there and do his job on Tuesday. For anyone who's into tile work - the bathroom sheet linoleum needs removal, and I suggested a coating of "floor level-er" so new tile can go down. Then there's a big cypress bush in front he'll need to clear out to make room for the banana palms we're donating.
He'll also need lots of help with basic sanding and painting: walls, ceilings, bathrooms kitchen cabinets. Step stools for this might help. If anyone is good washing down of walls with TSP - this would help out on the painting front.
Hope that gives you a rough idea.

Also - electrical stuff... if anyone is handy with such and promises not to get electrocuted, there are many misc. ceiling fixtures missing their fixtures - i.e. wires hanging from the ceiling. These would be really helpful so that Kuke (and friends) could work into the evening and actually see what he is doing
And there are some single vintage plugs (receptacles) that will need to be changed out to standard modern-day double plugs.
(gotta plug those lava lights in someplace you know)

I'm stuck on the other coast, but I'd be glad to donate a bit of decor for the halls or courtyard (maybe a nice pair of big, impressive Sali or Akatara clubs...or a vintage-looking tiki if I could get some help with the freight shipping costs). I love a dreamer and his dream. The world needs many more Tiki apartments. Maybe Bamboo will donate about 40 sheets of cabana matting and Moso pole? (just kidding...I know that stuff ain't free!)

Dear Tiki Central helpers:

The LeMoyne Lanai is located at 1415 LeMoyne in Echo Park. It is just off the 101 freeway. Fer instance, if you are coming up the 110 freeway, merge onto US-101 N toward Hollywood. Take the ECHO PARK AVE/BELLEVUE AVE exit toward GLENDALE BLVD. Turn SLIGHT RIGHT onto ECHO PARK AVE. Turn LEFT onto W SUNSET BLVD. Turn RIGHT onto LEMOYNE ST.

We start at 10:00 am, and I reckon we go until the Tiki Ti opens (it is just 3 miles or so down Sunset Blvd.). The King's phone number is 213 500-KING.

Denny is having another work party this weekend (2/22) at the Lanai. All interested, lovely volunteers please check in here or send me one of those little ole private email things. There are already some tenants in the Lanai! Their surroundings are improving by the day, due in large part to the helpfulness of kind-hearted tiki people. I don't know if his mom is going to make pancakes this time. I'll have to get back to you on that...

Tina,
Wish I could make it this weekend but I already have plans lined up. Might there be a work party next weekend? I can make it then.

BTW - Glad to hear the Lemoyne Lanai's got tenants!!! That's great news!

I've got family coming in this weekend, so March 1st is better for me too. Besides, are you and King wanting to spend all day Saturday cleaning and fixing the place, then go to the Sugarlight at Hale Hawaii AND THEN to the Purple Orchid at 11 p.m.? That would be one looooooooooooooong day!

Just my 2 coconuts worth.

I'd love to help if I was in the southland, but in the meantime: Can we see some pix of the place and how the progress is going? I'm sure that the whole thing is being documented, and I'd love to get a peek.
