I am having a ‘gallery’ opening next Friday Night, January 31, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, and I wanted to invite you’all to come…

I will be presenting a series of twenty acrylic and assemblage paintings called the Pop Shop. The affordably priced works are filled with vintage 3D title letters and little toys and trinkets. You can get a sneak preview of some of the work at
http://www.megorama.com/POPSHOP.htm
Oh and by the way – one of the paintings is named and dedicated to one of Tiki Central’s own… Mr. Smiley!!!

It’s at a bubble tea lounge called the Boba Bar. And there will be Fortune Cookies and live Casiotone music!
Boba Bar is located at 12044 1/2 West Ventura Blvd., just east of Laurel Canyon (across the parking lot from Dupar's in the Studio City Center) in Studio City -763-4790
The show runs from Friday, January 31 to March 2. They’re open every day from 11 AM - 11 PM and Sat. and Sun 11 AM – Midnight

Thanks for Listening

Click on the photo to see a larger view.

These paintings are simple abstracts like this with the focus on the toys or trinkets and a way complex deep 'artsy' meaning

That's a genuine 1970's Smiley Face bought in a Wisconsin Dells gift shop on a cross-country family road trip in what I believe was the summer of 1971. I have a vivid memory of the tourist trap store with a huge sea of smiley pins and rings!

Just to forewarn my fellow Tiki Centralites - "Boba Bar" isn't the kind of bar where you can get Mai Tais - they serve tapioca bubble tea. Try one - you might like it! But maybe those who are yearning for other refreshments could head over to the divey, yet delightful Tonga Hut afterwards? It's at 12808 Victory Blvd North Hollywood, CA (818) 769-0708 (a few miles north of Boba Bar and just east of Coldwater Canyon)

I just stopped into the Tonga Hut tonight to make sure they'll still be there. You never know these days - we're losing the nearby Leon's Steakhouse soon.
Anyway - it's a plan - after the art opening is over - Tiki Centralites and friends - we'll make the trek a few miles north to visit the 8 foot Moai Head by the front door and enjoy some libations.
They usually play rock music - but maybe we can coax them to play a Denny tape or CD?

Nice pics Futura Girl, but I wouldn't let Cherry Capri know that you're holding hands with CB Howlie! Or is there a cozy threesome going on here that I don't know about.

Wait, so Cheri Capri is the one married to CB? I thought that it was Futura. I'm so confused.....

....or am I?

Great art work Mary-Margaret

Well you know Vintage Girl - I think Cherry and Miss Trixie got something going on! That Cherry - she's a wild one...
