Dang, Bora Boris, I wish I had come up with THAT idea for the poster instead of a crummy old maori!

I'm on my way to Tonga Hut now! This show should be pretty awsome!

What a fun show last night!!! Thanks Grog for your organizational WIZdom!! I tell ya...Tiki people are absolutely the most amazingly refreshing kin folk you could ever hope for!! Thanks for the great support Nick...I am very honored to have such a focus like this issue. It makes me motivated to do this stuff till I croak!!

Oasis is less than two weeks away and I am soooo looking forward to it. I am making shrunken heads and voodoo pendants on the side as my spending, fun money so I can buy lots of awesome Tiki things and lay by the pool, sticky with Mai Tai's on my lips! My best to all the TC Ohana... See ya soon!

It was a great turn out last night. There were a bunch of nice pieces, and even nicer people. This was the perfect primer for TO!

Grog,
Thanks for the great show, and all the efforts to bring some light into the Tonga Hut. Met lots of nice folks and got to see some great art. It was amazing how many people could pack into that bar. I am very greatful for how supportive people were in my first effort at vending. A special thanks to Tiki Tony for helping me break down and pack my car to the ceiling at the end of the night. Kelly, you definitely picked the right bowl.
I look forward to being involved in another of your Tonga shows Grog.

And now for the thank yous.

A GREAT BIG thank you to EVERYBODY who came out to see the art, drink the drinks, and hang out. It was a great turnout, and a great show of support for the artists and the Tonga Hut. Thanks to all the artists for bringing all the great art and friendly smiles. Some of you artists and visitors made some pretty long trips to get here, and that was much appreciated. Thanks DJ Lee for coming and spinning some really fun tunes.Big thanks to Jeremy and Ana for hosting the event, and for bartenders for busting your humps trying to serve all the Tiki alcoholics some tasty libations.

This was a great start to a busy month of Tiki events here in southern California:
IN SEARCH OF TIKI exhibit at Forest lawn---starting August7.
The so-cal Bar crawl put on by Murph August 9 (International Tiki Day)
The Beach Burn in Huntington Beach also on August 9.
Bamboo Ben pre-oasis party and store closing with Ken Pleasant and Flounder August 14
Tiki Oasis August 14-17
Bongofury's Endless Summer @ The Rincon Room on August 30.
And Bosko's art is currently on exhibit at M Modern Gallery in Palm Springs.

Aloha, all!

Here's a pic of me with Tiki Mag's Nick Camara (minus the top of his head -- sorry! I didn't take the picture!) and the ever-dashing Thor!



(This new issue has my 6-page piece on BigBro, as well as an Artist-Of-The-Month cover article on Thor.)

The event was a blast!

Mahalos to all attending artists, the Tiki Ohana, and, of course, the Hut!

Cheers!
