Just want to add a quick CONGRATS to Squid for a well deserved honoring of your craft. BRAVO, SIR! Sounds like the The Tikiyaki Orchestra broke all their legs they were so heavy last night- no surprise there. By the by, Bai- nice lid; Deb says "blue looks cool on you." Cheers to all involved & Dave, we'll make it down for you're 9th retrospective celebration!

Well, at least we were able to give a wave to each other from a distance. That's what happens when you are the Belle of the Ball, ya know Dave. I did however manage to spend a few minutes with your better half. Hopefully we'll see you at Babalu's studio next month for more clay hi-jinx.

Great show! Nice job everyone!


That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Top notch all around! Squid that damn vending booth made my pockets alot lighter but can wait for November to receive my treasures! Marty Lush solid performance roasting Squid my favorite line from the night "This man has so much class he gets out of the shower to pee" the one liners were classic. The mug display was beyond impressive, i definately felt like a kid in a candy shop constantly changeing my mind of which one was my favorite. The food was excellent, the shredded Kalua pig was phenomenal, Tikiyaki was at the top of their game and i was stoked to hear a new track off the upcoming album. When are we doing this again??

I am soooooo sorry I didn't make this event. I guess my scapula didn't appreciate bearing my enormous girth on a cane for a week. By Saturday afternoon I could not sit, stand, lay, sleep or complain without excruciating pain.

Any chance of moving the collection down here for a week?

Congrats Dave this outpouring of love and respect was a long time coming for you and that wall of display mugs certainly supports Freaky Boutiki's claims that you are "The Tiki Sculptors Sculptor!" Huzzah!

Still thank goodness I spotted that total stranger wearing the fez and velvet smoking jacket (@ the Stardust?) in the crowd and chased him down!! I just new he'd be important in my life.

Thanks too Squidly for the endless inspiration I get every time I walk into our mug grotto!

Hurray for SQUID!!!!!

What an awesome night, and what an amazing and long overdue celebration for our amazingly talented cephalopod friend!

Things that were GREAT:


Things that were freaking' AWESOME:

The ART!!!!!
The Music!!!
And all the TC OHANA who made this show happen.

(Tiki Kate~ So glad to hear the collection made it safely back home!)

I am stating to think Squid MAY actually be some sort of multi-armed sea creature. . . how else would you explain his love of tiki, the GAZILLION bands he drums for, AND the BAZILLION mugs this guy has sculpted in a brief 8 year period. . . very suspicious. . .

Congrats again my friend. You are an inspiration in your talent, your drive, and your character.

Now stop stealing eyes. . .you have enough!


Ohhh. . .new mugs!. . .

TikiYaki plays to a packed house! You guys sounded awesome!

You say blurry, I say artsy

Hurray for HUMU!

The lovely Maid Marion

Atomikitty & Maid Marion

Sassy Dave. . .

Big Toe says. . . Dave, you don't have to act sassy just so people will like you. . .

As well as Squid's retrospective, this was also one of the last times many of us would get to Tiki Travis before he returns to his Aussie homeland to complete his Koala Husbandry classes.
What follows is a brief snapshot of the magic, and the mystery that is. . . .TRAVIS. . .
We will miss you buddy! Come back soon!
