The date is SO saved!
We've been talking about this for months, worried it might end up on a date we couldn't make. Really looking forward to another great time in the Enchanted Lagoon, and to seeing what you've been up to, inside the house, too.

Good timing Limbo! I just worked some things out yesterday and I’m excited to finally be able to announce our killer lineup for the 2nd Annual Texas Tiki Round-up.

Please join us once again at the Enchanted Lagoon (my place) for a magical evening of Tikified Hill Country Texas fun, this year featuring the relaxing Hapa Haole sounds of Combo Mahalo and the surf rocking sounds of Los Super Avengers.

http://www.myspace.com/combomahalo
Combo Mahalo played Hukilau in ’06 and locally have played the likes of the Continental Club. They will make you want to sip a tasty cocktail under the Texas sunset.



http://www.myspace.com/lossuperavengers
Los Super Avengers hail from CA and found their way here. Locally they have played the likes of Headhunter’s and will make you want to dance!





Share a drink with us in our new tiki room and help me think of a name for it. If your tiki room name is selected, you will win a prize. You can also win prizes by simply showing up and putting your name in the prize drawing coconuts. Check out the link to last year’s Round-up to see photos of the awesome prizes we gave away, including original paintings by local tiki artist Crash and Dallas tiki artist SwampCreature.

Last year's thread:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=26040&forum=4&start=30

A few progress shots of the tiki room:






Bring your vintage, or brand spankin’ new swimsuits and take a dip in the lagoon if you feel so inclined.

Like last year, if you want to bring a food or drink item to share that would be awesome, but is not required. To help cover the costs of the bands, we are asking for a donation of $10/person. I'll post PayPal info soon.

Party will start Sat. August 1st at 7:30pm and go until ?

On Sunday we’ll gather for a hangover cure lunch at the world famous Salt Lick BBQ, which is “jes down the road apiece” from the Enchanted Lagoon. This place has been written up in many publications as being one of the best BBQ joints in Texas. It's authentically rustic structure and setting is about 10 minutes from my place. The sauce is unique, and the huge open pit is a thing to behold. Time of lunch TBA, but I’m guessing around noon. It’s BYOB and they only take cash.

http://www.saltlickbbq.com/

At Hukilau, I spoke to some out-of-state folks that are hoping to attend, and I look forward to seeing you. The link to last year’s party has hotel info. Those that are planning on making a long weekend here will find plenty to do with Barton Springs, Lakes Austin and Travis, SoCo vintage shopping district, and hell, we ARE known as The Live Music Capitol of the World. I can make further recommendations if needed.

Address will be posted closer to date of party.


Can't wait! Aloha for now-
Julie

Yay! Less than a month away! Drink selection is coming along swimmingly, although some further research might be required...

I'm getting some RSVP's on my home email. Who else is in?

Paypal is set up if you don't want to think about it that night. Just log into your Paypal account, select Send Money and enter this email:
Koitiki@austin.rr.com. This isn't my regular email, so post or PM me with any questions.

Mahalo!

I'll most definitely be there as I hope all TX tikiphiles will!

You can't beat the Enchanted Lagoon for exotic escapism. Koitiki's property is BEAUTIFUL....pool, hot tub, outdoor bar, music, not to mention tiki's that keep showing up unexpectedly as you stroll through the garden. My favorite memory from last year was sitting in a recliner gazing up at the stars listening to Martin Denny while sipping a Nui Nui. It doesn't get any better than that. I wouldn't miss this gathering for anything!

Wow! Thanks for the glowing review Kenike!

I'm psyched about the RSVP's I've been getting. Crash has generously offered more cool raffle prizes this year and is bringing some of her recent work with found objects and papier mache that must be seen to be believed. No one else is creating tiki art like this. You just gotta see!

Some of her other work:
www.crashart@smugmug.com
www.cindyraschke.com

Hulacat and I are cooking up some culinary surprises, along with some of the faves returning from last year, like spring rolls and Sabu's Spicy Coconut Chicken Skewer's. Yum...

Aloha Koitiki,

Count us in, all three of us, Hulacat, Castlehune and me! Really looking forward to it, last year's luau was simply the greatest! .....so much fun. Anyone else who is thinking of coming and hasn't committed yet, .... don't wait, this will be a luau party you'll long remember.

Do we have a list available for posting yet so we can see who's coming so far?

Dobrolic

Besides all of us locals, we've got folks coming from Dallas, Houston and San Antonio so far. I have as many RSVP's as we had attend last year and they're still coming in. Gonna be a great crowd. Looking forward to hearing from everyone.

Gettin' psyched!!
Koitiki's place is enCHANTing, making time spent with the Texas Ohana (and some out-of-staters?) even better.

And this year, I plan to NOT leave Houston without all my aloha wear, forcing me to have to borrow one of Koitiki's beautiful dresses.

Aloha folks!

Barely more than a week away from the Texas Tiki Round-up! Sixty plus RSVP's so far. Woohoo! Can't wait to see my old tiki buds and meet some new ones. The time for a food and liquor run is almost upon me. Thanks to everyone who has RSVP'd and those who have Paypal'd. If you haven't RSVP'd yet, please let us know you're coming so we don't run out of booze! You can RSVP here or PM me.

For those interested in burlesque, here's a link to a show on Friday the 31st before the party Saturday.
http://kittykittybangbangshow.com/new-show.html

The address will be posted next week. There might be some cool cars out front. I'm especially hoping to see one of Crash's recent projects I've been hearing alot about, a car painted entirely with koi!

One room and several sofas still available at Chez Koitiki for anyone wanting to claim them...
