Milling around before the bus arrives.



Everyone is special on the short bus.



Feeling the love at the Mon Kou.



Is this a Witco?



Rick (just his back, really), Nicole, Scott, Gina and Damian



Photo ops in front of the Ho Kong (where Capt. Quad and Bargoyle scored some sweet Scorpian Bowels)



Maybe not tiki but the most amazing decor I've ever seen at a Chinese Restaurant--Chuck's China Inn



More at Chuck's



The girls at Sundown--Tiki Ports Hyannis



Rick guards the Tiki we left at Tiki Ports. We doubled the TiPSY score that day!



Paul and Kelly are so cute, it makes you happy just to see them--or maybe it's because we found Hula Cat. Cookies, anyone?


Speaking of happy people--

All the chicks were fab on the tour

Yet more photos...

The only group shot, pre-tour. We "forgot" to take an after picture:

Our bus. Oh, the irony.

Our brave leaders, bargoyle and pappythesailor, serving bus drinks. For the record, bus drinks consisted of all you can drink Blood of the Kapu Tiki and the 1934 Zombie. Both VERY well made. These guys do not F around with their tiki drinks.

...which can result in people like HulaCat showing you their pelvis. Don't ask.

It still amazes me that I was able to catch Bargoyle in this "rare" pose:

What the hell is Bogie drinking?


A great time was had by all - thanks Pappy and Bargoyle!

I sometimes get Scorpion Bowels. Usually when I eat undercooked meat or if the potato salad has been left out too long.

Great photos so far, folks!

Thanks, Pappy and Bargoyle, once again, for a really fun weekend. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Here are a few of my photos:

Shiny Happy Tikiphiles at the Mon Kou (which is awesome, btw):


Suzanne and velveteenlounge:


I know most of you have seen this before since the Mon Kou was on the NETT last summer, but it was new to me (and fab):


Decor in the conference room which the staff at the Mon Kou was ever so kind to open up just so we could see it:


Hula Cat being Hula Cat:


Suzanne doing her best to point out the obvious:


jpmartdog raises his glass to the founding members of Flotsam:


Careful negotiation of the Blood of the Kapu Tiki containing vessel:


Titanic, Tiki Style, at sundown at Tiki Port:


Our driver, who was awesome and put up with us singing "We're Goin' to a Hukilau..." and many, many outbursts of "Bwana!" (anyone get any video of either of those?)


Rock on.


All the rest of my photos (quite a few) can be seen at:

Once again, I'll say this, as I've said before...You guys are lucky to have all these great, old, still in tact, TIKI Restaurants....We've got pretty much nothing left like that here in SoCal.

Looks like a good time was had by all.

It was great to see everyone again. I'm sure my camera contains some candid shots of all the usual suspects I'll get them posted eventually! Thanks for putting up with my carrot munching and Passover, not over blues. When is the next event? I'm really hungry for Chinese food for some reason?

Funny, that was the first thing I wanted for dinner when we got home...mmm, leftover crab rangoons.

What an incredible weekend! It was great to see everyone again, and I suspect that I’ll be seeing many of you at Hukilau. Great photos everyone! I’m still getting around to downloading most of ours…

Thanks to everyone who hosted a room on Friday, and especially jpmartdog for letting us use his room as the central hangout point.

Here's Jon at the 'bar"

That chick is way too uptight...Giver her a drink already.


Many, many thanks to Bargoyle and Pappy for organizing yet another excellent tour of New England’s tiki places. See you in September for the next one (and hopefully sooner).

Just got home from Chuck's China Inn and I'm happy to say that they proudly display the Tiki mask that was presented to them from the NETT Jr. tour.

Mike and Tony hoped we'd be back next year.
