Ok, Elvis tiki from Ft Lauderdale, I'll disregard yer comment cuz you are hiding under a fake profile and this speaks volumes of you. so i wont waste my time.

Kiliki, i would've worked something out with you if you had responded to my email (you never did). Only after you found out what we had planned did you decide to write me. I would never messed this up intentionally. what i'm doing will bring a new breed of people into tiki, and keep bringing people to South Florida even though the Hukilau will be no more. Besides, I wasnt only planning on having Hukilau attendees here, there's a lot of people who have walked into my store and been turned onto tiki and have supported this Party and other events that i have put together. Tiki central die hards aren't the only people important in this world of ours. I will not lose sleep over who attends and who doesn't. and to be honest, I don't want elitist tiki people who will look down their nose at us like if we were from another planet here anyhow, so attend if you want don't if you don't. THIS PARTY WILL GO ON! what we have planned here is a tribute, honoring the people who played a MAJOR role in this culture and people who can share their experiences with us because they have NEVER been invited to a Hukilau event, even though they are local. so all of you who support us come see us! we're gonna have a great time!

Wouldn't an "Afterparty" start at Midnight and not at 10pm
when the main acts go on at the Hukilau Friday event?

Look into your heart of hearts and acknowledge the truth.

No offense intended, but your words in the recent post suggest that one needs (or always needed?) an invitation to attend The Hukilau. I think those of us who know the event attest that this is not ever been the case. Hukilau is a public, not private, event.

And let's all of us not ever forget that The Hukilau is still a business with costs.

Elitism. That's a separate argument meant for other aspects of tiki.
In this open, and hopefully remaining calm, conversation of opposing point of view, an outsider could easily construe the timing of the Kreepy Tiki "after Party" event as a competing for the spot light. Not an accusation. An observation.

Its very apparent nothing any of us says here is going to stop either event from occurring, so not even going to go there. At the same time, please allow the other side to voice the concerns that the event that so many are traveling far and for is being effected, if not compromised, by a separate event with an overlapping time frame and gratis admission.

EDIT: Again for spelling & grammatical correction

I think this is a sad situation, and as an event planner, I'm very sympathetic.

Both sides have stated their positions, and Christie has sent out the update to her mailing list.

I don't want this thread to turn into a pissing match- If you're reading this, you know the score, and you can make up your own minds about the situation, your feelings, and choose to attend whatever you want, or both, or whatever.

All I'm saying is, I just don't want to see another ugly damn thread, so my itchy thread-lockin' finger is twitching.

Ok, so let me see if I've got this straight. Even though the Hukilau has been on the calendar for a year, this scheduling conflict is Christie's fault because she didn't email you sooner and/or she didn't respond to one of your emails. Do I have it right so far?

And you're doing this as a public service, to expose more people to tiki culture. Am I still following you?

Excuse me for being slow but, just so I'm clear, are your intentions purely philanthropic or does this have something to do with the fact that you just opened a tiki themed retail shop and this happens to be the weekend that hundreds of tikiphiles will be in Ft. Lauderdale all due to Christie's hard work and financial investment. I mean, why charge people to come to your party when Christie has already spent the money to bring them here in the first place.

But this has nothing to do with money, right? You just want to expose more people to tiki culture during what is the largest, previously scheduled tiki event in the nation. I mean, if people wanted to find out about tiki culture next Friday, they'd be shit out of luck without you, right?

I just doubled checked the Hukilau website to make sure before I posted - but it's clearly marked on the schedule that Friday evening's event run from 7:00 p.m. to midnight. That schedule has been posted for several months, if not a year. So to claim that the KreepyTiki event which overlaps this was meant as an "after party" can't be a true statement unless you think 10:00 p.m. comes after midnight.

And to claim that this scheduling snafu is somehow Christie's fault is believable only if you're the kind of person who also thinks we're winning the war in Iraq.

Gimme a break. This is such a sleazy move it's beneath contempt. Hang in there Christie - we all support you.

I posted some of this in a PM, but I wanted to say some of it out loud......

Keep the flame war off the threads, send them in a PM. Everyone getting excited and yelling will get an admin to lock the thread then we will have no further information from anyone. That leaves everything to rumor and innuendo, which is fun, but will not help this discussion.

If you have to choose sides, choose.

If you want to make both parties, go to both. Both events run into the wee hours of the night so it shouldn't be too difficult to see some of each.

If you do decide to go to the Block Party, please take a cab. Parking is limited in that area, and the Police love to set up DUI check points near there. Sitting in jail will not be a good thing regardless of which 'side' you take on this issue.

Now, carry on..... I think Elvis from Hell was speaking last, that means its Kreepy Tiki or Tiki Kiliki's turn......

I usually don't anger easily but I am there now. If you want to talk about "speaking volumes" the long time Hukilau attendees know your number.

You can't talk your way out of this one. YOU scheduled an event in direct conflict with an event that has been planned for over a year. All for a "free" good time?

It has nothing to do with "eliteism" it has to do with common courtsey for Christie and the other Tiki Ohana that so appreciates her work.

Once again, the almighty buck transends ethical business practices.

I'm sorry, but that whole deal is just lowdown and rotten. Cabana is far and above better anyway, because one can hear the f'ing completely fantastic lineup from a swimming pool or hot tub with a refreshing rum drink in hand (that be me!!). All the after/during parties take place there. Everything from the penthouses to the balconies lit up. A blast. The OFFICIAL Hukilau after party, as everyone knows, per the tradition for the past four years, actually takes place both nights 50 feet out in the beautiful, moonlit Atlantic Ocean off Ft. Lauderdale Beach. Awesome. Beautiful. So, all that being said, you know where I'm gonna be. Hot parking lots just not for me.

Wow...

I have really good memories of the two Drasnin performances, Waitiki, Haole Kats, my wife Nereia and I dancing with everyone at the Maikai last year while waiting for the second show, and many more! When I realized Nereia and I could not make it this year, I was sad. When Kiliki announced it was the last one, I was more sad.

Then I get the "Critical" email, then see this thread.

If the only big tiki event anywhere close to me generates this kind of bullshit nonsense, maybe it will be another year before I check TC again.

This is a real shame, we are so looking forward to coming out for the Hukilau, and it will be a shame if it cannot all happen now, can't we talk Christie round to putting it back on, by the sounds of it nearly everybody is going to stay st the Hukilau now anyway, and with the way this post is going, it doesn't sound like many people are going to go to the AFTER PARTY, the last Hukilau and poor old Christie gets this to deal with, it's not fair!
Please Christie, we all support you! Keep the Friday night show!
See you all next week!
