Hey Koitiki,

Mahalo, Kat and I enjoyed meeting everyone and had a good time.

I woke up at 2 pm Sunday hungover and smelling like pineapple.

More pics:

Julia with art by Crash


Mark with art by Doug Horne (This is one of two pieces I won on Doug's TC thread last Christmas. Check out the next shot to see what we did with the other one.)


Dane blushes from the praise for his handiwork in the tiki room, while Grande Kahu and Tom check out the hinged frame showcasing Doug's artist sketch for the front piece. Every tiki room has to have a special secret, eh? Thanks again Doug!
Oh and I have to note that the seam behind Dane is not shoddy workmanship, but rather the edge of the door that hides my desk area. I will post more tiki room pics to another thread soon.

Ryan, son of Limbo Lizard


Heelgrinder and Kenike


Cedarhoops and Tami


Los Super Avengers


one more set coming...

Huge mahalos to Combo Mahalo and Los Super Avengers for playing for us Saturday! Everyone was totally digging you guys! I received many rave reviews during and after the show. Big thanks also to Crash for creating a mini car show and making the raffle prizes, not to mention her work in the tiki room! Yay for party helpers Lori, HulaCat and Dobrolic, Formikahini, Kathleen, Brittanie, Kenike, Maholio and MartiniTiki. Cedarhoops for the hooping and Ryan for the fire spinning. Loved meeting all of the new folks! Thanks everyone for coming!

I have a fairly large collection of lost and found items including about 10 thermos jugs, which have all been washed and are awaiting the appropriate bribe for their safe return.

Last of my pics from the Round-up:

New Braunfels and San Antonio represent- Shawn, Kathy, Scott and Heelgrinder


Raffle drawing- HulaCat, Steve, et moi


TxTikiGirl


Fashionista Castlehune. Your earrings match your ensemble perfectly dahlink! (She models raffle prize by Crash)


Yo quiero Los Super Avengers! (Gus from Houston)


From the Enchanted Lagoon, Aloha til next time!

Wow.

Five years ago I was complaining that there was no tiki in Texas. Certainly no one can say that anymore.

We've all seen or read what's been happening at our beloved Trader Vic's in Dallas. Eye candy for sure, but the escapism one expects when walking through those doors is long gone with the opening notes of Kool & The Gang's "Celebration" blaring through the lounge. So, where can one go to have an experience that combines all of the things we love and admire about tiki culture? The answer undoubtedly was what a lucky few got to experience last Saturday night.

Koitiki's home is an amazing blend of backyard Polynesia, a near complete one-room escape to the land of mid-century tiki kitsch, and the residence of a loving family. To say we're all so fortunate that Julie and Dane choose to share it with us is the understatement of the century. Let's not forget the pool & hot tub...

Many people were involved in the preparation...supplying food, alcohol, raffle items, alcohol, music...did I mention booze? I'd like to thank everyone...I could start naming names but I'm sure I'd forget someone.

Now think about this...just in one town at one house about 75 guests show up and NOT just because it's a good party and they can swim in a pool. They mostly came because it was a gathering of like minded folks who really have no place else to get this kind of experience. Not in Texas, anyway. Koitiki didn't put this together because she likes all the work that goes into it. It's because there is no place else to go to celebrate our love of Polynesian Pop culture. It's because there are no true tiki-esque establishments in our state that embrace the whole idea. Just imagine if Trader Vic's or Don The Beachcomber opened a new location in Austin and REALLY did it right. I might move...

Thanks again, Julie and Dane, for giving us what we can't get anywhere else.

TxTikiGirl, I can help you out. email me cedarhoops (at) g mail (dot) com

Tiki sure is fun, but my usual motif is Circus. If anybody wants to get their hoop on some more, just come join my circus, you don't even have to run away! Check out
C.U.@Circus on Facebook.

We are holding and Electro Circus this Sunday and next from 3-10pm at the Polo picnic area at Barton Springs. Sure would be fun if some Tiki monsters came to hoop with me and scare the children! No, really it's kid and dog friendly.

Aloha, and thanks for the great pics!

Shon-tiki: Pineapple... hmmm. Coulda been much worse! Great meeting you guys!

A few musical notes for everyone:

Anyone that missed the Rancho del Ray show on KOOP when Ted mentioned our shindig, can hear it like this:

Go to the Rancho del Ray page on the radio station site, then scroll down and click on SOUND FILE ARCHIVES, which will take you to Dennis Haberkern's site where the files are actually hosted, of the five or six most recent shows.

http://koop.org/index.php?page=scheduležion=ranchodelray

http://dennishaberkern.com/rancho_del_ray.htm

The 8-5-09 show had one set with four Hawaiian songs, it was set three. The printed playist is not posted yet on the KOOP site.
The 7-29-09 show had all Hawaiian during the 2nd half of the show.


Also from Los Super Avengers: We will be playing The Hole In The Wall on Sept 4th. There is going to be a Surf-Rock Extravaganza! It's gonna be The Long Shadows at 9pm The Neptones at 10pm, The Nematoads at 11pm and us at 12am (midnight). Hope to see some of you there!!!
