Here's a few more of mine ~







The Three Bears


I like how Squid is using the cymbal as a snack tray while playing with the Haole Cats.


Grrrrr!

As well as being new to Tiki Central this was our first Hukilau, and while we knew it'd be great, we had no idea that it'd be more fun than a rum barrel o' monkeys ... thanks, Christie, for putting something together that was like a dream. It was truly fabulous!

I've been cooped up and sequestered for too long, at work on the final revisions of a big novel, and being a compulsive tikiologist and vintage fiend I thought this would be a welcome getaway to our favorite Tiki Mecca ... nothing like a few Shark Bites and Jet Pilots to clear the head ... but what neither one of us were expecting was the very real 'ohana that colored the whole weekend ... seriously, we met so many wonderful people that seemed like long-lost friends, I really can't believe it -- it was a blast y'all -- our only regret of this very special weekend is not having met everyone, but fortunately (thanks again Christie & Mai-Kai people!) there will be next year!

I'm finally breaking down to get a Flickr page to deal with all the pics, but here's a few to start with:



sarong-o-rama!




tiki bree!


happy hangovers


one of the shots from my holga


oh you know it!


jens and marisol


inky, kurt, charles, mr smiley (and is that the guy from the cinci bengals in the background?)


charles and marie


jean, al, michael


deep in discussion


in the gardens






yummy!






greg and lady friend


everyone's favorite maitre'd ... patrick!


gift shop gals


aloha and mahalo -- let's do it again!

Beg pardon while I interrupt the photos for an important announcement:

"Mermaids & Mai-Kai", a Hukilau reunion of sorts, will take place on Friday, July 11, at The Wreck Bar and The Mai-Kai (of course). There will two happy hours, food and drink specials, a mermaid show, live rockabilly from Slip & The Spinouts and ladies night all night.

Here's the event thread:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28926&forum=&0

Hope to see all the locals there so we can swap a Hukilau story or two (or three).

Alohaaa everybody!

Wow, what a beautiful bunch of photos here. I can still feel it and would like to turn the watch hand back.
I was such a great party at the Bahia Cannonball Cabana and we really enjoyed every minute of our trip.
Last week I checked our 644 photos we made and post about 100 of them on our website.
Here is the link:
Hukilau pictures

I would also like to post some of these photos on TC, but at the moment I start a trip to Switzerland and than to the island Rügen.
So I have not enough time at the moment. Next week when I will be back again, I will post some.

Thank you all so much for your great hospitality and all the nice time we spend together during the Hukilau.
I´m very happy, that I made it.

Cheers, Kai

One of the local weekly papers ran a pretty big story on Hukilau and the Mai-Kai. Although the writer was pretty clueless (she apparently missed the announcement that this wasn't the last Hukilau and, amusingly, she was under the impression that the waitresses were actually "bartenders") the article paints a pretty festive picture of the event.

And it ends with a classic exchange with Hanford Lemoore, who even manged to get in a plug for TikiCentral.com ...

I know it's a month later but my pictures are finally up on Flickr. You can see the Hukilau pics
here or you can view all the pics from our two-week road trip through Florida.



You can also see photos from the last Hukilau we attended, the infamous Hurricane Hukilau in 2004.

We had a great time after missing Hukilau for four years. We are so grateful to be back in the USA with like-minded folk and are eager to see friends old and new at the soon-to-be announced (right?...) Texas Tikiphile Gathering and Tiki Oasis next month.

It took us over a month but we finally
got them up on Flickr ...

We had time during the Hukilau to do a little bit of tiki & mimo urban archeology and that's also mixed in with the set.
