Looks like y'all had fun, wish we had made it!

We are chained to our computers with a wicked deadline looming for this movie we've been slaving over.

Maybe we will see all of you soon.

Wow! What a great time. It was fun seeing everyone and getting caught up. This is one of the reasons I moved out here, to be able to participate in events like this.

Eric, a big thank you for organizing this shin dig. Your art looks smashing.

Squidly, thanks for the awesome piece. I found a "CUTE" corner to hang my "CREEPY" Squid art, love it.

Better late than never, below is my original for the show. Go check out the great art everyone did for the event.

Sam's/Kona was packed, I forgot to mention what a Great Job Jeff ( bigtikidude ) Did, Spinning some cool vinyl, Thanks Jeff, All though I didn't collect vinyl in the late 70's early 80's I have some of my used, Very played surf records for you, My way of saying Thank You! For all ways making the events fun, With your DJ music, The Gogo's with the Ventures ( 45 ) Surfin' and Spyin'/Showdown In Newport is one of my favorites! I'll bring these with me to the next event.

You probably have this " Surf Raiders " Surf Wax Record



Though in rough condition, I know you'll find some use for them!



Thank You Jeff/Eric And again what Packed Fun Night! Gogo

Mahalo everybody!

Wow! What a phenomenal opening event last night!

I want to thank once again all the amazingly talented artists who really came through with some stellar work during a nutty show schedule.
The swordfish artwork for the month-long show is fantastic! If you didn't catch the opening night festivities, you can still check out the work until March 28th!

We're working on having a closing night gathering too... there will be a couple more pieces joining the show in the next week, so come on back to see more cool art!

Thanks too to DJ BigTikiDude...Jeff, your music was awesome!

And thank you to everyone who came out to support Kona and the artists! What an incredible turn out! I was so excited to see so many people... a tribute, I believe, to the great artists, and the great establishment... Sam's, Kona, and now Don the Beachcomber!

Thanks also to Chuck at Kona for being willing to host the show. I'm hoping the turn out gave them a sales boost, and sets the precedent for more events in the future!

MAHALO AGAIN!!!

Yer pal,
Eric October

What a fun event this was! And no blubbering weepy-ness since (thank the Tiki gods) the place isn't being torn down! I think we all owe a big mahalo to Tikiyaki for beating the drum on this one. I am excited by the prospect of a new Don the Beachcomber's here on the mainland. And something tells me that the new name/ownership may lead to an increase in the "tipsy" (tiki's per square inch) factor in the decor. Great to see so many poeple I love in one happy place!

Thanks KONA for such warm hospitality
and a BIG MAHALO to tobunga
for organizing this awesome event!
the joint was packed!
the vending was hopping
and the art was eye-popping!
Eric sold a great "KONA at night" piece to some lucky duck that eve!
that was my favorite!
Met a lotta newbies and got to hang with the oldies!
the enthusiasm/stoke/and inspiration choked the air!
Best surprise of the night was meeting Moss
the owner of Frankie's in Vegas!
it was rad to finally be able to speak with him in person
There are just too many friendly people in the scene!
What a kickin event!
bigtikidookie played some nice sets and added some mood-enhancing ambiance!
not enough Sabbath in those 70's speakers,tho!
Glad i could get all dem hugs from y'all!
i'll add them to the collection!

Doug I loved your piece, I was staring at it all night across the room from me.
it has a angry dark feel that none of your other pieces have.
and sometimes thats a good thing.


Go Tiki,
that is some great stuff you have there.
I would be more than happy to give it a home.
and play it at events.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

What a fun time we had!! Picked up a few trinkets, had a few cocktails and caught up with everyone. Nice!

The art was great! We looked over and over at everything-wanted all of it!

I got an awesome tile pendant necklace from Stacey Morris/Happy Chi Jewelry...matches my tiki watch. Love it!!

SO glad I can spend my Summer weekends here!!
