H. Hayward,

Thanks again for organizing an excuse to come over! Great to see you, K. Kelley and the Gumbo Limbo It will be a monthly pilgrimage for me. Hopefully the Camper will not look so "Ghetto" the next time. The exterior looks like that middle stage of beard growth. After some good advice from chip the restoration paint job will be true to the original 1966 version with a little Polynesian flair. With over 8 coats of various types of paint it is taking awhile to strip down. It will be awhile before I venture out with it again with gas prices so high. I literally watched my gas gage dropping.

I will post a few pictures soon but did not take many. The Black Magics.....distracted me.

I am a man of my word, although it was a Pangs Punch!


Had to get their new Branded Mug to commemorate the evening.



Thanks to LiesureMaster and Nicole for being sports and joining us last minute, injured even! Otto's is everything we remembered plus a new layer of.....whatever that stuff is. Missed Nell, but we will catch her the next time when we have more solid plans and can warn folks we are coming.


When is the next one, I am starting to have Black Magic withdrawals! I need to get down and take some pictures of a few specific things down there so....

Hey, when is the Wreck official getting wrecked? I didn't miss it did I? Perhaps we should do something, chain ourselves to the bar, protest, sacrifice a small animal....or just a cocktail if you are offended by my un-PC pagan brutality, or at least a last gathering cocktail and swim in the pool, some shannanigans and then we overpower them and loot the place!

HELLOOOOOOOOOO ??

where is everyone? wake up Ft. Lauderdale, I'm coming down tomorrow!

sorry for the late notice, life has been very chaotic. I have to go down to take care of some business and take a few pictures no matter what. It would be great to see everyone but don't feel bad if you can't make it, I understand that everyone was just there for Halloween and this is last minute.

Hope some folks can make it but honestly I can have a blast if it's just me and the Molokai girls!

It will either be Nov. 21 or Nov. 28. We hope to figure that out soon.

I'm very anxious about the Wreck Bar as well. We'll have to grill the bartender - or Marina - the next time we're there. Oh no, grilled mermaid. That doesn't sound good at all.

FYI, 2009 Hukilau announcement is coming soon. Look for a special surprise headlining band this year.

Aloha!

You lucky dog. It's a 60-mile trek for me. I'm sure you'll find the daily happy hour the most economical way to ingratiate yourself.

Feel free to come over on the 21st and introduce yourself. We'll be the looneys in the back of The Molokai.

Marina has a special mermaid show lined up for us on Friday so don't miss this opportunity while The Wreck Bar still lives in its current vintage state.

It will be a "new mermaid debut" with a new recruit joining Marina and Kami in the pool. That's right, a three-mermaid show! Marina says it will be a "training/orientation swim" for the newbie while she and Kami'lani will do their normal show. After her initial swim, if all goes well, she will then be "dubbed a mermaid" and given her new fishly name.

Not sure what happens if it does not go well, but it will be fun to watch. Marina says: "She's really exited - and so are we!"

There's no telling how much longer the mermaid shows will continue. The Yankee Clipper is scheduled to undergo an extensive renovation soon and rumors have it that there will be an entirely new interior design, including an overhaul of the iconic mid-century lounge.

We hope that by showing our support for Marina and the historic nature of this establishment, we can influence ownership and management to at least consider keeping it intact. Check out the mermaids every Friday during happy hour. For more info on Marina, go to her sites:

Well, we all knew that Marina is an awesome person.....er Mermaid, Its appropriate that the "Mix" is recognizing it. I'll be on the look-out for that calendar!

Hopefully the press will help efforts to fill seats and sell drinks so the "Powers that be" will see the value in keeping the Wreck. Time would certainly treat their wisdom and vision kindly if this landmark were preserved.

As for the "Best Place to ride out a Hurricane" category....... I think we all know better, eh?

My inner smart-ass must comment on the "Best Tiki Bar" category.

The picture illustrating this "Slice of the South Pacific" has a black dress clad young lady pouring a glass of red wine. priceless.

Add a few distractingly gorgeous bartenders and a near-perfect rumrunner and Bamboo Beach becomes the perfect place to wile away a weekend afternoon.

I am always up for distractions and agreeable to "wile-ing" so I might stop by the beach someday for an average....I mean near, but not quite, perfect rumrunner, but I prefer weekdays when the crowds are thinner.

Keep the torches burning Hayward!
