It's over
But what a great time I had this week end. Thanks to the Cheekytikis and everyone who made it possible.

I was happy to be with my tiki friends/family Tikichris and Emilia, Tiki Racer with his great art and Madame, Pocketiki (great stories) and Sian, the very cool Tikidrom, Lemonsqueezer (thanks for talking music with me), King Kukulele (this guy is everywhere), Amanda and Peaches from Paris, the "new great artist Charlie Adam, Atomic Tony Tiki from Scotland, Jamie & Anjy, Dolly Mixtura, the really cool Midnite tiki from SF...(I'm probably forgetting a lot of folks).

We had great music : Bo Axelzon and his orchestra, really excellent Exotica from Sweden, the Bikini Beach Band (fantastic surf combo), some Polynesian dance, King Kukulele...great Djing by Lemonsqueezer and Dollymixtura
Tiki art from all over the world in a great place.
and...great drinks at Mahiki (I missed it), Trader Vic's, Trailer Happiness.

Trader Woody and Kon Hemsby were missed by everyone (bastards).

My pics are here

Wow. That was fun. It was great to see the old crew again and to make new friends. As everyone there is well aware, I took a ton of photos. However, it might be another couple of weeks before I can sort through them. Until then, here's a little review I wrote for Londonist:

Great pictures, we had no time to take our own so it is great to see everyones.
Thanks to everyone who could make it to all or part of the Luau this year. It would not exsist if it wasn't for all of you.
Please email us your pictures so we can put them up on the Luau site.

Mahalo

Hi
Wow what a great weekend, just recovering now!! Met some great people again, and what some kool places to hang out! Thanks again to Jamie and Anjy for all of your hardwork, and we can't wait till next year!! Great to see our old mate King Kukulele, and I think Sunday night outside of Trailer Happiness was the best show he did, especially when he went through the bins at the end!!

Thanks again!
Sue and Dave.

hey here's a link to a short youtube vid of king kukulele

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpfSJWugyj4

We were outside the cocktail bar - Trailer Happiness, late Sunday night having last London Luau drink before all heading home.

Although tired from a full weekend of doing his thing, the king still managed one more great performance.

This was taken on my digital still camera, so the quality isn't great.

Thanks Denny, keep doing your stuff.

Definitely staying on Sunday night next year. We missed this fun rushing for the last train home (made it by 3 mins...)

Thanks for posting both vids, tikiracer!

Great photos! Ms. VanTiki and I would LOVE to head out next year - but sadly the exchange rate isn't in out favor! We'll have to settle for fabulous event photos and write ups. Can't wait to see the virtual gallery.

Mahalo for posting the goods!

Great photos Tikiracer!

I love both of your pieces in the art show, but I'm particularly taken with your rendition of Stonehenge. Very nice!
