First a day at the Primer Nationals, that in itself would be a great day, but to add a visit to the Rincon Room is over the top.
Ron and Mikee I cannot thank you enough for the blessing of your friendship, your hospitality and sharing your incredible home. Rincon Room aside, Your beautiful people. This was my wife's first foray into my world of Tiki and as Ambassadors of Poly-pop, you have her hooked!
Our host, Bongofury

"What I Have Learned", by Tangaroa-Ru
I have learned that I really should not leave L.A. on Labor Day weekend EVER AGAIN. I cannot believe how many fine Tiki events were happening over the past few days out here. Nevertheless, Asheville has been lovely and it is good to see old friends here, too. Thanks to everyone who has posted photos so I can, at least, see what I missed!

Ron & Mickee, you guys are the best. Thank you so much for opening up you awesome home to us. I am amazed at your collection. It was great to be able to see so many of the TC Ohana there from all over. I for one can definitely say that it was WELL WORTH the long drive from the OC to be there. I am so glad that so many people were able to document this event with pictures. Keep em coming!

Ron and Mickee are such gracious hosts, and they have such a wonderful home, that it’s like being transported to a tropical paradise. Their collection is incredible and it’s displayed so beautifully. Their parties have all the perfect elements of good food and drinks, live music, and lots of great friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Bongofury... you both are so amazing. Both your creative spirits have blossomed into an amazing exOtic Jungle environment once again and thank you for sharing a little bit of the world you have created. The foliage has really taken off, and I can only imagine the amazing jungle you'll have in just a few more years. I always forget just how inspiring your vintage collection can be, especially with the meticulous way its all presented. Your suggestion to paint black velvet as well as your awesome collection of velvets inspired me to put paint to velvet, and I'm more excited about tiki now than I was when I first discovered my first palm log and bamboo in the riverbed to make my first Tiki Hut almost 10 years ago!
Purple Dave Orchid mixing up an amazing Foggy Groggy ... forgot what it was really called, but it was an amazing blend of the exotic with the fog and bubbles and did I mention it tasted great!
Monkey, Chimp, Orangoutang, and Alene.

A huge thank you to Ron and Mickee. The house is absolutely amazing. I could hardly pull myself away from the Cabinet of Awesome Stuff.
The guest bartenders were sensational. I had no idea that Ojaitimo made such a killer mai tai.
It was incredibly nice of Tony to sign posters.
I had a fabulous time.

Ron and Mickee! Awesome party, your place is incredible. Thanks for letting me make a mess with the 3 versions of Mai Tais I made. Vic's, Don's and Clement. (Thanks Tiki Kate)
