Great art,mugs,
great tunes, sorry I missed Hula girls, and lighting ceremony, but I was a bit detained waiting for carpool partner,
Great people,frineds,
good times indeed.

Now, call me negative Ned,
but may I point out a few down sides?
I noticed a lot of people leaving as I got there.
what no Love for Tikiyaki? thought that was kinda rude.
The Florescent lights that were on, kinda killed the vibe for me.
and I only had cheese sticks, but I heard from a few diff, people that the ribs were not so good, and they had a bad experience with them.

other than that, I had a great time, just wish I could have been there from 6 pm on, not 9:10

Not at all. It was totally packed for the TO. All the people that were outside (probably over 100) for the fire ceremony came inside right after. What you probably saw leaving were the regular customers, not related to TC.

I had the ribs and I thought they were great. So was the baked Yam...

I'm with Lucas on the wait staff...they were amazing, polite and very attentive !

As far as people leaving before us, if they did, maybe it was because we just played last month and saw us already, but the room seemed pretty full...

Also, I think these shows are better when people can sit and watch. If we play there again, we will have tables and seating for everyone. I think it's more condusive to the exotica style...it's dinner/lounge music, and people wannt to relax,drink,eat and socialize.

Anyway, it was about Al this night anyway. We were just there to add some musical ambiance.

Jim,
you were lucky then, I heard that the ribs made some bellies rumble,etc..

yes it was just last month you played, but I hope its not a fact of,
show up, buy mug, and leave.
your right there was people there when you played, but I saw some TC people I know leaving as I got there. oh well, such is life.

and yeah seating would be nice, standing got old quick.
my friend Kristena and I grabbed the closest table to the back room, and we were able to hear and eat, very nice.

hate to be a complainer, but just pointing out a few things.

Al, that was a super show. We love your stuff!
I would post a few pictures but haven't figured out how to do so.

Hula Girls and Tikiyaki Orchestra sounded great, fire dancing was great, Crazy Al's work is AMAZING.

This was our first trip to Bahooka, and I agree, the staff is wonderful. Our waiter was really nice and the host who gave me directions (got lost when we got off the fwy) was really sweet as well. My 2-year-old loved the fish in the tanks all over the place. We'll definitely be back....
but I have to say the food was not so hot. And the kids menu was appalling - it's all fried food!
(In any case it was a far cry from the last tiki establishment that we visited... such a horrible experience that we left before we even got to to *try* the food!)
I want to end this on a positive note because it was, after all, a good night - so I'm just going to say once again that the staff there made it a fabulous experience - no one said a thing about bringing drinks into the parking lot, and I think they were serving drinks out there as well? And I loved the flaming beverages - fire codes be damned! In a world where we have more and more rules and regulations constantly imposed upon us, it was refreshing to be able to relax and enjoy the evening without stressing about the stupid little things that often seem to get in the way of having a good time.

Thanks for a fabulous evening!

I think it's one of those places like Rainforest Cafe or Blue Bayou, where you go for the ambience but don't expect the food to be super great! Still, they were totally cool about the outside drinking and whatnot, and again, just fabulous, awesome service.
Plus, the fish in the walls were great. Especially the fat one with the tiki lips! He (or she) and I made friends.

C-Al's artwork, the reason we were all there. It's fresh and exciting. Truly professional work coming from a sweet, Humble guy.

Lots of fun on Saturday night...
I want to thank Al, again, for having the Hula Girls to play his art show. Amazing mugs and carvings... Such detail in them...
I also want to thank the Tikiyaki Orchestra for letting us play before them. We're looking forward to playing more shows with them. Just a super talented band.
Great to see all of my old friends, it's been a while since I've been getting out to tiki events. Looks like this band will be getting me out more and more. Hopefully we'll have more shows lined up soon.


If you missed the event, here's a quick video of us doing an instrumental with Crazy Al on his coconuts...

Al, you rock! If I wasn't so goddamn busy working my life away, I'd be at every one of these events. Oh well, maybe next time. I mean that...I'm gonna surprise you and show up and show some support. You've got big fans in the Nutty crew, and don't you forget it!
