what is the deal with the Purple Orchids signature tiki mugs? I tried to call, but it seems that the TC members know more about this place than the bar tenders. Do they have them yet, when are they scheduled to arrive, and last, will you guys celebrate it?



thank you thru drive

OB bird, TC was there last nightand Dave was a GREAT host . He said that the new mugs should be out next month, I think. I am not really 100% on that cause we were all sampling the samplers(bowls of grog) big-time at the P.O. , sounds good though, huh?

"Sampling the bowls" indeed! The folks at the Purple Orchid were gracious enough to buys us TC'ers something like 4 Volcano Bowls - each filled with a different PO signature drink. Dave & Rebecca were indeed VERY gracious hosts and made feel like VIP's.

I didn't know about this, sorry I missed it. I've got to get to checking up on the board more often.

Same here Bigbro,

What's going on? Have me and Bigbro been blacklisted? (Well, I can understand me being blacklisted, but Bigbro?)

I would have gone, but was kinda put off by the late start at PO that was posted. I don't play pool, but would have tried to catch up with the group at PO. Not that I don't stay out late, just don't like to start out so late is all.

Sorry Guys, I guess the get-together could have been better announced. It started in this thread:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=2330&forum=1&20

and ended up continuing in the thread we're in right now. If its any consolation, Baxdog never showed up - although he gets an 'A' for effort!

The Hurricane Pool Bar was quite interesting. A mix of bamboo and day-glo murals, it had about a half-dozen tikis mixed in with some Dia de los Muertes carvings and a tiki mounted on the ceiling. The place was small with a TV in the corner and get this - only 1 pool table that nobody was using. Other than the bartender/owner and 1 patron, we were the only ones there.

We hit up Purple Orchid around 10pm. A small contingency of TC'ers gathered around a regular refilling of Volcano Bowls compliments of the house thanks to Crazy Al getting us "in" with the owners Dave & Rebecca. It was fun, we consumed about 4 bowls altogether (not counting the drinks we purchased on our own). Of course, the bowls were complimentary and filled with their own signature drinks!

A good time was had by all. Maybe Sabu can post some pics soon.

There was no intention of black-listing anyone (with the exception of Baxdog, and it looked like the plan worked!). I hope there are no hard-feelings.

...and the discussion about the evening finished in this thread: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=2613&forum=4&12.

I considered calling some more of you folks, but I assumed y'all had seen the thread. I won't let that happen again. I thought about calling Bong but I figured that he and Spike were having one of their secret band practices that night.

The Baxes did show up at the pool hall but they were too early to meet up with us. Dave and Rebecca (the proprietors) were sooo generous and really great to hang with.

Mar Vista Bowl, how's about February 22? There, I proposed the date, now someone in that area set up the rest of the logistics.

Before he starts snapping at heels (or humping legs...), I think it should be noted that Baxdog & his family DID make it to the Hurricane Room, but left before any of us got there! Two-Wheelin' was a no-show, however... (2W - where you been? Living at Tiki Ti??)

The pool place itself was indeed empty at the time we were there, but I could tell by the sound-system and lights that it must really go off in the later hours! (but probably in a decidedly non-tiki way!) Dave at the Purple Orchid told us the story of the Hurricane Room and how the present owner ended up with it after the previous one had decked it all out. No word from anyone, though, on who did all the painting...

As far as 'blacklisting' goes, the date was posted long ago, but the actual time didn't get settled until that day or the day before. They were, however, on different threads in different forums, so I can see that they'd be easy to miss. I saw that Bong & Lucky D had a practice planned (can't wait to you play - got a name yet?), but I sent Lucky D a note anyhow, giving times & places, figuring he'd pass it along to Bong. No such luck, however, as I found out today that he doesn't read his e-mail often enough! AAARRRggghhh! As far as going back again, I for one, am always willing to give it another try!

I'm certain I heard Dave mention that the Purple Orchid mugs would be coming out next month also, so I agree that a mug release party is definitely in order! He says he lurks and reads but never posts, so: DAVE IF YOU'RE READING THIS - give us a date so we can come down and initiate the mugs right!

And we promise not to steal any!

No, really...

Honest...

Doctor Z,

Big Al coined the name of our little band - The Smokin' Menehunes.

Yes, next time we'll set this up better. We had a good time, but all those that didn't make it would have made it perfect. Bigbro, I tried calling you, but the phone just rang and rang and....
