I'll be there if my Parents let me outta the house,
Too bad I can't eat because I'm broke,

Ben's right, maybe I should get into doing Tiki Decor, and steal some of his business.

What time are The Hula Girls Playing???



I saw them mention they have two long sets, first one starts at 5:30pm. If any of you see a father and 8yr son duo with tiki shirts, kickin' it with their mugs and Kiki von Tiki... be sure to stop by and say Aloha! Would love to meet everyone on the boards in person.

The flyer on 1st page says event runs from 4 pm to 10 pm.

I will be there at 4.
I'm a big guy with long hair and goatee,

Bamboo Ben likes TVs in tiki bars and white walls,
and his mom dresses him funny.

Our sets are not exactly "long" (we are a relatively new band) and we are not the main attraction at this fiesta...but we hope everyone has a good time regardless!! Hopefully one of the other girls can post here and nail down our starting time (I have no clue, I just know what time I need to report to Sgt. Bong's house). As usual, they point, I shoot.
I will be bringing a compilation CD of some of the more exotic "exotica" and more obscure lounge recordings in my collection, to play before, during our break and after. Though I kind of wish Jeff the Pool Cleaner was Dejaying..he has excellent taste in music and is an expert on exotica, surf and lounge!

Well, I had a great time. Thanks Hula Girls, my son was so excited to get his first mug and was thrilled to meet some of the band... that just made his night! The atmosphere is far better than those pictures show... for the record, the walls aren't white. Very enjoyable place. My only two complaints were they were playing football on the 4 tvs around the bar even during the music, but more importantly, the drinks left a lot to be desired. My son was able to have a virgin Lapu Lapu, "the Lapu flavored mix" as the waitress said. I'm guessing my Lapu Lapu was the mix and rum? I hope she meant 'mix' as in pre-made mixture of juices rather than from a can or something. Yikes. It definitely needed more rum even if it wasn't a canned mix. *shrug* Great music and a nice tiki mug. Win/Win in my book.

agreed my 1st Lapu Lapu seemed like all mix no booze, I said something and my 2nd one was super strong. but didnt really Taste like a correct Lapu Lapu.
a guy at our table ordered a Mai Tai.
and damned if it wasnt really close to a trader Vics Mai Tai, and strong wow!

the band was great,
fair turn out of tiki peeps for a sun night.

I wont say its amazing place, but I thought its really better looking than the pics elsewhere on TC.
I wont go there all the time, but if there is an event or band I will.

Thank you Royal Hawaiian for letting us play! And thank you TC'ers who showed up on a cold Sunday night!

I never had the Lapu-Lapu. Due to the ecomomy, several of us broke the cardinal rule and drank BEER out of our tiki mugs! The beer was mighty fine, I think!

The decor was better then I thought it would be, but it does not look old/vintage. Obviously an updated look.

The service staff were very cool! Nice and friendly.

I saw lot's of cameras...let's see some pix!!

The place is actually pretty good inside.... I was pleasently surprised... The Royal Hawaiian isn't what it once was, but it is a very nice, clean looking place with lotsa OA tikis and poles and stuff... It's probably going to be a full pick up spot though. Full club-style on the weekends... No thanks.

Anyway, we had a blast playing there last night. Super fun time. Thanks to eveyone who came out and supported the event. Thanks to Holden for getting us the gig and putting out another classic mug.

Some pics by our photo friend, Just Nicole.




It was pretty rad that when we were leaving, a guy came up to me and was like, 'I thought there were gonna be Hula Girls here tonight...'
I said............ 'You just saw them.'
