I couldn't agree more. But this one guy talked to me and was very put off by us. The people who I encountered simply didn't get it. This one person asked me flat out "do y'all do alot of drugs?" in a very accusatory tone. I would have just laughed if off if I hadn't had a similar encounter earlier that day.
Since I was helping out with Hukilau, I was in areas alone with staff from various venues in rooms at times. That was typically when the conversation came up.
But I just don't get it. I mean, have these people never experienced conventions of "I Love Lucy" fans, Trekkies, Renaissance Fairs...even Halloween for Christ sake!

Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell
I'm just average guy with an average life.
I work 9 to 5, hey hell I pay the price.
But all I want is to be left alone in my average home.
But why do I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone.
Everybody now ... Somebody's watching me

I hear that those "I Love Lucy" fans are HUGE into angel dust, PCP, bennies, goof balls, and even birth control pills!

Relieved to hear this after attending the 'Captain Video Space Helmet Fantasy Party' at the last Lucy Con!
At least I don't have to worry about that Ethel look-a-like anymore now that I know that they allow the pill!

This guy may have been on the ninth floor at the Clipper. It was like Spicoli's Van.
The elevator opened and the smoke poured in. Seriously, it was like a fog, I got a great contact buzz and it smelled like quality stuff. Next year at least bring some incense or take a walk on the beach. I'm no prude but, A little discretion would be advisable and help keep these types of impressions to a minimum and keep security off the floor.

Heck, at that rate it sounds like if security had showed up it would be one deep inhale and they'd have been on the floor ...literally!
When you consider the history of Ft Lauderdale Beach (especially during the 80's) it's a wonder why anyone would even raise an eyebrow. Seriously, this place was out of control!

The Hukilau this year was my girlfriend and mines first ever Tiki event.I was excited by all the people that I met and really loved the music.Kukulele and the Intoxicators definitely know whats up.
Our biggest surprise however was the Mai Kai.We will definitely be visiting this happy wonderland again soon as it is a quick 2 hour drive away.And we will be bringing friends.
Mobiletikibar put up this video of me singing in someones hotel room late after the Mai Kai.I don't remember him filming it and not much else either.
Thanks Mobiletikibar and thanks to all the new Tiki folk we met.
