Wow, that's not too cool. I'd hate to be someone who made plans for this months ago, especially if said person was flying in from very far away just for that weekend. That person would feel...well, not too cool right about now.

Fuck it, it's still the Luau weekend to me. If I'm coming from 5000 miles away (which I still am), it's the damn London Luau in my book! I got my London Tiki map, a few pounds, and a lot of free time. Vic's, Mahiki, Trailer Happiness, I'll be around.

Lemons into lemonade,
midnite

Midnite Tiki and El Buho, Im in the process of rejiggering my whole itinerary for June based on this news. I was thinking to move London to around the 19th or so of June leaving around the 22nd, but if you guys are flying in for this anyway, perhaps we could create our own mini London Luau? Im game. Ill even buy an aloha shirt for the occasion if I find one in my travels. Im backpacking it, so Im limited in my garb, but the spirit is strong.

Any other folks in the area would, of course, also be welcome. Show us how tiki is done in the UK.

As Midnite said, Fuck it, it's still the Luau weekend to me. Thats the sprit!

PM me if this sounds like a good idea.

- SV

bummer again!!.... even though I'm an international TC visitor arriving on the Fri 6th, I cant do the 7th as I'll be in Cardiff.

But luckily I will be in London for a year or so, so I look forward to catching up with the Britiki crew another time if not before the delayed Luau. otherwise it's highly likely I'll be having a welcoming maitai at one of london's tiki bars on the fri, sun or mon nights.

cheers.

WOW! I feel like Rip Van Winkle!! I've been so busy with stuff that I just haven't had time to log on to TC for what seems an age. Great shame that the Luau is postponed but I've been thinking that in the long run it is probably for the best. The past three LONDON LUAUs have been so good that putting the fourth together in a hurry with limited resources probably would have not been a winner. I know what you are thinking...A bad weekend at the LONDON LUAU is better than a good day in the office", but...The LONDON LUAU is special and I for one think it should remain SPECIAL! Now, I know that some people have made arrangements, bought tickets etc. and believe me when I say "that sucks!", but from what I have heard on the grapevine this was not down to lack of effort by the organisers but quite the opposite! Tiki culture (for want of a better phrase) is certainly on the up and it is people such as CHEEKYTIKI who are contributing enormously to this exciting time for us all here in the UK! I know the work they are doing at 'Shangri-la' has over-run due to numerous changes of heart from the client, eating into any spare time these guys might have had to deliver a June Luau.

It is all to easy to grt caught up in the fact that the LUAU has been postponed and forget the fact that because of CHEEKYTIKI's hard graft, and love of what they do, there have been three great LONDON LUAUs so far not to mention three fantastic new tiki establishments in the UK! Let's here it for MAHIKI, SUGAR CANE and their new, as yet unfinished creation! From what I've also heard on the grapevine...these won't be the last! Let's here it for the CHEEKYTIKIs..Hip, hip!...

As for anyone travelling to London for what was to be the LUAU in June, or any other time of year...GIVE US A SHOUT here on TC as the BRITIKIs would love to, and will, give you a good time...one way or another...that's a promise!

I think the 7th is looking likely for a 'tiki luau shindig'! Looking forward to hooking up with you again Captain!

All the Best from Good Ol' Blighty! - Trader Jim (make mine a Mai-Tai!).

Still can't wait for the actual Luau... I've loved the past two and, even with a delay, this is something to savour... Much better to wait until it can be put on with the usual amount of love and care than rush it all together. There's still a shed load of exciting tiki nuggets to uncover in London in the mean time... All the more exciting tales to share when the grand event finally arrives!

Let me point you to the Vans store on Carnaby Street for example... In a rare moment of taste they'll be producing a very limited art T-Shirt featuring several tiki designs AND a red hot luchadora! And, while you're rushing down there to pick one of those up you can pop out the back of that store and visit Black Pearl right behind it! And the thirst you've worked up by now should be quenched with a swift jaunt down to Mahiki... I could go on but I have to dash off and stroke a parcel from Muntiki that just arrived at my front door. Mmm...

My wahine and me will join you at the Mahiki for a drinks. Sadly we made some other arrangments, so we can't join you for the whole day.

Just booked my accommodations. I hope the Tube/train/ganging up in a taxi are acceptable ways to get around since I have no car and my roller skating skills are atrophied. I have a brand new fez (Tangiers)and Hawaiian shirt (though made in Bali) for just this occasion.

Looking forward to it.
