GROG think Squid not having much fun judging by this picture of him being molested by Soccertiki. GROG also overhear Tikitrav say that he dry-humped Squid's leg. So, GROG doubt we're going to see Squid show up at very many of these events. Unless he enjoyed being molested, then he'll be the first one to show up.

Hello all,

Greg here saying Thank You to everyone who participated last Saturday evening at the Tonga Hut. I met some really fun people for the first time, drank a Mai Tai and a few Navy Grogs, talked technique with the artists...but I did have difficulty holding back $ and purchasing cool stuff - my God, did you see OceaOtica's amazing large red/orange ceramic volcanoes? (I'm saving $$ for San Diego guys and gals!).

I realize this Saturday was just a fraction of the excitement that Tiki Oasis promises to be in two weeks and I scream BRING IT ON! - I can do the social tiki thing all summer.

Thanks Grog for the organizing and last of all - THANK YOU Tonga Hut for hosting these cool events. It keeps working/living in the San Fernando Valley bearable.

Hau'oli piha makahiki, la ho'omana'o

Just got some pics from the show downloaded.

Miles aka Evil Mastermind crafting a last minute Ocea Otica sign, Miles really busted out some crazy foamcore skills making large and teensy signage, and was just a great general support for my first outing

booth 90% set up

Boris gettin the ball rolling as the first to sign the new mailing list

my great friends who came to support, help, got shanghai-ed into watching the booth when i need to get some air. Special thanks to MOQ for tying all that raffia into small skirts to decorate. They had a great time, had plenty of cocktails, and picked up some Tiki Tony goods
Thanks again for such a great show! and to all the people that came over to see what i have been spending the last 2 months, sometimes 13 hours a day, working on.

I'd like to thank Ana & Jeremy from the Tonga Hut and Grog for organizing such a fun event. Also, thanks to the TC Ohana (It was great to see so many friends), Tiki Mag contributors at the party (Kari, Paul, Tim, etc.). Also thanks to the Tiki Mag features in this issue (who were at the party) Sven, Tiki Ray, and Thor, who created the beautiful cover. See you at Oasis next week!!

Nick

Here's Tiki Trav pulling out a pair of presents for your birthday Kinny.



And it was THIS guy's birthday, so we DID have one person at the Tonga Hut celebrating their birthday.
