OK, so this thing is really happening, finally, and I had this idea, I mentioned it to Holden, but he will be too busy setting up the main event, so:

Here is a chance to take over the Taboo Cove for one day and make it what it always should have been: Rent it for Friday or Sunday and fill it with Tiki Centralites and all of the other Tiki tourists, play ONLY Exotica, find someone who can mix the right cocktails, and ENJOY!

Who's gonna organize that?

Sounds Good. I think Friday night might be a good way to warm-in the weekend. I know a lot of folks will be leaving town on Sunday and I'm not sure if Taboo Cove is open in daylight hours....

I was talking to luckydesign when he was out here and we came up the same idea, I have the info on renting out the cove, but I think they said the max was 4 hrs or so. I can get deffenit price if ppl are really into this but it would have to be cash upf front,And I can see how that might not work out too well i.e tiki gardens. Also it would have to be on friday since the bash is on saturday and its also viva las vegas weekend (rockabilly weekend) so it we have to jump on this asap.

Well, if its too much money to officially "reserve" it, we should just setup a meeting time and crash it. I'll be there on Friday for sure. Hula Hula doesn't know it yet but I'm crashing at his pad for the Bash that weekend...

tahts probaly the best deal , just have everyone meet up there. Since its a friday night and viva las vegas weekend im sure they'll accomidate the music,and as for bar tender there only 2 that are any good anyways, Its weird though they we're all trained by tony ramos, but they still dont get it.I know that a few of the are just OJT and never offically went to bartending school.

and yes polypo can stey wit us. I got an open living room also if anyone else want to crash, you just gotta share it wit my iguana and she roams the house freely.

Ok, let me see if I get this...Mondo Tiki weekend is Easter Weekend? What about those of us with families with little ones? It's not like you can blow off the Easter Bunny. Mondo Tiki?...Easter Bunny?...Mondo Tiki?...Easter Bunny? Man, this isn't fair.

Dawntiki: You mean the Easter Island Bunny? Bring the eggs along, perhaps the little ones can hunt for them in and around the hotel room.

BigBro: Sounds like a great idea! It should be done before it's closed!

So how much is it to rent the damn' thing?
I don't think that many of the Tony Ramos trained kids are there any more since the management change. But what about those women that supposedly knew how to make a good Polynesian cocktail?
IF the amount is too high, how can we impress on to the management that it would be to their benefit if they played Exotica and mixed good drinks that weekend?

Actually there all the same bartenders since day 1, none have changed. There were all hired from rum jungle and trained, when the new managment took over the only thing that change was the good drinks and music.
I have a call out to shanda sumpter the general manager of the venus(what the taboo cove is under), she has yet to call back. If other liked to try here her number and email

Hey Hula-Hula...

It has not been inked, but APE might play the Mondo event. We need to book a Fri. night gig to make the trip pay off. My contact at the Venus is gone and Otto poo-pooed on the new management and said I should try another venue.
Do you thing I could get APE in there on Fri, or have other venues to hit up?
Here is the APE site to pass on
http://tikimania.com/ape.html
please respond to me directly, Thanks
al@tikimania.com

Hey Dawn Tiki,

I have the same problem and I don't even have little ones! I hate having to choose between my family and these events. I'm still tryin' to figure out how I can do this but it doesn't look promising. Perhaps if Ape is around on Friday and we take over Taboo Cove, I can do that and skip Mondo Tiki. Tough choice but as they say, you gotta pick your battles...

For us, deciding between Friday or Saturday (or both) is based mainly on who is playing at Mondo Tiki. If the BSO rumours prove true, Z Girl and I will DEFINITELY be there both nights, and take a middle-of-the-night flight back so we can spend Easter with our families.

(however, there is something a little unsettling about 'taking over' a place on Good Friday...)

A bit more dirt...
The BSO (Brian Setzer Orchestra) rumors are factual - opening band is slated to be Royal Crown Revue. It's all in negotiations right now - I'm hopin' to get this finalized Tues., 02/04 so I can post some real stuff. The day will be ultra tiki poolside lounge, requisite w/3-4 bands, deep-tiki grounds decor, top floor poly cocktails and as the HR will have it to get their "E Channel/Wild-On" billing, a "Tini Bikini Wahine" competition along with my request for "That F'n Ugly Aloha Shirt" contest. The daytime activities will commence at 10am and go through 8pm (w/a nighttime 9-midnight concert at the Joint) and end w/polynesian fire jugglers/tropical drums. The grounds decor will be a mass collaboration of all tikiphile creators w/some hopeful big' ol smokin' 10+ plus Wayne Coomber's. Appleton's Rum (umm... yumm... hiccup!) is slated to sponsor the alcohol - perhaps TVic's might do the mixers (a great combo!). Shag branded/ltd. event commemorative paraphernelia along w/ ltd. ed. event mugs by Al, Drew, Jimmy C., Squid,
Joe Vitale, Pizzuti, Danny G.. Rumor'd is also Shag gaming layouts (black jack, craps) but that's still got some serious work-up to happen. That's it for now - more to come as it's available.
Holden

Yes, being a family man myself, I had this same dilemma. Here's what I'm doing:

Friday - driving out in the afternoon, Cheeseburger at the Oasis for dinner(?), drinks at Taboo Cove, APE Concert, crash at Hula Hula's pad.

Saturday - Mondo Tiki all day, RCR and BSO concert at night.

I'm leaving town at midnight on Saturday. This should get me home at about 3:30am (I live in the 909). 6 hours of sleep later, and I can get up with my kids and spend Easter Sunday with my family.

BTW - I'm doing the same thing with Tiki Oasis since its on Mother's Day weekend. Since the Tropics is only 75 miles from me, I'll just be driving out on Saturday morning and leaving around midnight so I can be with my wife on Mother's Day (a BIG requirement). At 70 mph on the freeway, it's only 1 hour away!

Popster,

You're a maniac! Look what the 909 has done to you!
