I have not seen any threads regarding any tiki event being held at this location or time.
I figure since nothing has been posted recently and the tropics bar is gone at the Motel,
that this event would not happen this year.Rory and everyone involved last year did such
a great job.I know that everyone in attendance had a blast -that's for sure.

I got this message from Rory awhile back but haven't heard anything new, that was good times last May. Sad to hear the restaurant and bar have since closed. Rory really put it together well last year so I'm hoping he Butch's up again!

Whats up Rubberneck?
We may be doing a tiki caliente II the last weekend in May. If you are interested email me at
roryjsnyder@hotmail.com so I can put you on the presale list!!!!!! You will get a discount if you lock in before Jan 31st.

Have a good holiday and hope to see you in P.S.

Rory

I PM'd Rory (Wildsville Man) about this a couple months ago, and he replied that he didn't think it was gonna happen this year due to the management at the Caliente Tropics. Hopefully something has changed since then.

The terms the owner asked for are unreasonable this year. He seems to think that because of Caliente Tropic's full house last year, he wanted a guarantee. I am going to call up and ask them when Tiki Caliente 2 is going to be. Maybe if a few of you can do the same?

Cindy and I drove through the Tropics last month during the Shag/modernism show. The resort looked like a ghostown complete with tumbleweeds rolling through the parking lot . All you could hear was the sound of chirping crickets . What a waste ! They dont realize that there is something about an event there that just captures the theme of Tiki Caliente and the parties going on during Tiki Oasis were unforgettable . They should make it a Don the Beachcomber resort . Shit, did I just start a new thread ?

My girlfriend and I actually stayed there Modernism Week this year. I'd say the place was about 3/4 full. As for the Reef Bar, the windows were covered in black plastic. The west side of the bar/restaurant building had a large construction waste bin that had a lot of construction/drywall dust around. So they appear to be actively doing something to it, as opposed just having it just sit there. That could be a bad thing though, obviously.

In this pic you can see the plastic in the windows on the side entrance. (the plastic was clear but hard to see thru)


This is a pic from the pool side. You can see the plastic in the windows, plus it looks like drywall dust or something that was tracked out by something with wheels.

Peep's of Wildsville,

Tiki Caliente II?

I wish I could say it was going to happen this year but that would be a lie. After dealing with the Owner of the Caliente Tropics (Rogger Abbott) I realized it was not worth the effort to do something that would help out a business that doesn't care about it's fan's.

One weekend of entertainment takes about 4 months of planning and time,and that too long to partner with someone who doesn't have the same goal in mind.

I thank everyone who trusted there time and money with a new bee to come to the show, and I know I did everything in my power to entertain and keep it cost effective.

Will there be a Tiki Caliente 2? I believe so,but it will happen when I have more control of the product.

My goal was to keep it real!!!!! We were boutique Tiki not Walmart Tiki!!!!! We had great vendors with great products and we didn't gouge them to be part of the Show. Also we had some of the greatest artist that happen to do tiki involved too. (I can't thank Doug Horne or Sam Gambino enough.)Also,thanks to the Bands........The Smok'in Boy's and Martini Kings were very cool to be part of a show with a very lean budget...........This is what the tiki crowd I know is really like.

So please enjoy the more established shows and historic restaurants and bar's, but please back the new bee's that are doing it for the right reason and are passionate about what they do too...They will be historic too some day.

Thanks again,

Your Hero,
Wildsville Man
"The peoples choice"
