Awesome stuff Dave! It'll be a pleasure to meet you and see it in person.

Hey Ray, Is there a tiki somewhere in that hula bump pic?


Bumpity, bumpity bump!

I have just received another batch of Claritas Amazing Candles today from Argentina . At my last show people requested more and brighter colors and damn if that girl didnt produce them . They are bright and beautiful just like her !!!!They are being sold for $10-$15-$20-and $30 and worth it . All are original and hand made by her . All sales go to her also. Im just the proxy boy.
Dont forget that Im also auctioning off that 3 1/2 foot tiki starting at less than 1/2 price so be ready to bid on it .I have never done this but I want someone to give this tiki a home at 11pm .You can name it yourself just like finding a bastard child on your doorstep. See ya there folks , Ray

We've got GOOD NEWS and BAD NEWS for tonights event at the Tonga Hut:

The BAD NEWS---Holden from Tiki Farm won't be able to make it out tonight.
The GOOD NEWS---He shipped the Rocketship Decanters to GROG to sell at the Tonga Hut.

The BAD NEWS----He had to reject the first batch that came from the factory because they were overglazed.
The GOOD NEWS---He did get a good batch of 29 that GROG will be selling at the art show.

The BAD NEWS----There's ONLY 29 of those decanters, so what small inventory GROG have may sell out quickly.
The GOOD NEWS---The quicker they sell out, the more time GROG have for just drinking and visiting and NOT having to sell decanters.

The BAD NEWS---If you get there too late, they may be sold out.
The GOOD NEWS--- If you get there too late to get a decanter,we've got other awesome art to buy, and some awesome drinks, some kickin' music by the DJ, and some good friends to drink with in a nice neighborhood Tiki bar.

See ya tonight people!
I am really looking forward to a great time!

I am currently printing up the drink menus. Here is the final line-up for your drinking pleasure:
*The TONGA LEI*
*Lechee Nut Martini!*
*Planet of the Apes!*
*The Ginger Flame!*

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Sorry to all you weirdos that were voting for the 'Pink Squirrel'-I tried it and it was gross.

IN OTHER TONGA HUT ART SHOW NEWS. . . .

In true Atomikitty style, I procrastinated until the last minute, and then stayed up all night and went gangbusters to crank out a new painting for your viewing pleasure!!!
And guess what??!! It's NOT a Coconut Monkey!
Be the FIRST to see the new piece TONIGHT!

We're leaving right now...Zaya and I just need to pick someone else up on the way.
See you all soon.
You guys better make this trip worth it or Zaya's going to kick Grog's ass for promoting a shitty event.
I'm glad I only have to deal with 29 mug guys tonight now. Sorry about those mugs, people.

First of all, I cannot believe that after being out so late last night that I am up and on the computer already.

Big thanks to GROG, Atomickitty, and everyone else who put the show together. I had a great time meeting everyone and hanging out. See you all again soon I hope.

Now I sleep.

Very fun night! TikiYaki-Thanks for the CD sampler! The music is fantastic! I can't wait for the full length CD to come out. Keep us posted! Thor had some great prints available. Tiki Ray auctioned a BIG beautiful tiki....How much did someone steal it for?

Aquarama, Yvette and HipHipHula

Bora Boris, SoccerTiki, Little Lost Tiki and Dave's Not Home (licking something tasty?)

L.L.T. and WooHooWahine (and D.N.H. in the background)

Major Tiki Bling!

Tiki Ray and S.T. (who's grabbin' who?)

CheekyGirl and her new T.C. recruit

Great night indeed....Thanx to Soccer Tiki for introducing to all the TC luminaries, and to WooHooWahine for giving away my CD samplers for me ! Great meeting all the talented artists and cool peeps too.

The guy who got the Tiki Ray tiki got away with a steal for sure.

THOR was kind enough to give me the "Marasino Bandito" print just cos' I gave him a CD...I'd say I got the good end of that bargain
Mahalo, brah!

Kirby, we gotta do Yaki's for lunch one of these days... 2 great locations..either by ME or by YOU. I'll have the "Aloha Bowl", please.

Grog, I almost didn't recognize you without you being superimposed into a squirrel photo ...great meeting you too.

Look forward to the next one.

Anyone up for one these kind of shows at the soon to be open Sam's Seafood ?

Thank you everybody for coming out and supporting the Tonga Hut and the artists. It was good seeing everybody (except Kinny). Kirby, you're always welcome to come as long as you bring Polly.
It was nice meeting new people like Tikiyaki, Sonny from Nutty, and Aquarama.

Thank you to the people who made LONG trips out here for the show like Buzzy and Zaya up from San Diego, and Pdrake an Tiki-Kate out from Las Vegas and Yucaipa.

Thanks to all the artists for participating and the Tonga Hut for having us there and serving up tasty drinks, and thanks for getting the DJ who was playing such fun music.

Thanks Suzy for the fliers, helping organize and advertise the event, and for serving up some yummy drink specials. Sorry GROG not sale more of your prints. For some reason people would rather buy coconut monkey art from a pretty blonde with a pleasant smile rather than a crotchety old bald caveman.

And thanks Bamboo Ben for not coming to the Tonga Hut and doing something to embarrass GROG.
