Aloha,

Be sure to mark your calendars for the 33rd Chef Shangri-La Anniversary Celebration being held on Saturday evening July 25th and Sunday afternoon 26th, featuring a fantastic line up of Free entertainment throughout the weekend.

Saturday we have the mesmerizing surf sounds of the Cocktail Preachers at 7pm and the pounding rhythms of Go!Tsunami at 9pm. We will also be moving the monthly FREE raffle to Saturday between acts.

On Sunday doors open at noon with the return of the “Shopping Bazaar”, featuring carvers, artists, and vintage vendors. Entertainment for Sunday will be the Hapa Haole sounds of the Bikini beachcombers at 2pm, followed by the space age bachelor pad groove of the Astronauts at 4pm.

The Chef will be offering food and drink specials throughout the weekend as well as a Hawaiian Style pig roast on Sunday afternoon. So come on out, bring the family, and join in the fun and frolic! See ya at the Chef!

Mahalo,
D&C

I stayed at said Rodeway Inn for the LSJ/SCOTS show and awoke unslain. The inherent aroma complained about on Trip Advisor was not present in my room (which actually smelled like a bar of soap). Though I can't vouch for the whole place, I can for room #16.

Don't expect the Four Seasons...but for $57, t'was worth it (and no, I don't work for the Rodeway Inn).

The renovations look wonderful, Bamboolodge... so great to see the Chef shine after all these years!


I'm looking forward to helping celebrate another year that this treasure is here for us all to enjoy!


Only weeks before our debut at Tiki Oasis 2009, Lake Tiki will have a special collection of work from this year's "South Pacific Secrets" at Chef Shangri-La's Anniversary Party!

Stop by and check it all out this Sunday afternoon!

Hand carved and hand painted tiki decor for your walls, freestanding tikis and hand carved tiki idols will all be available for purchase.


Look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday to celebrate Chef Shangri-La... wishing the owners and the staff many, many years of success!!!!

..i also picked up a few things to contribute to the raffles as well....


this event is a great way to not only support a vintage establishment like the chef but to also mingle with other local ohana and show support for the areas tiki scene....this is one of the best yearly local events that happens here (and we don't have many, unfortunately), so don't miss out on it!!

On behalf of Suzy and the staff at the Chef we'd like to thank everyone who made it out this past weekend, what a fantastic time!

The Chef had a banner crowd on Saturday night, Suzie was more than pleased with the turnout, although as Tipsy mentioned, having that 33 cent second drink really backed em up in the bar. The Cocktail Preachers did an awesome set as a 3 piece with Phil and Steve switchin' off bass and guitar in a couple of songs, & Phil even played a foot theramin!!! Go ! Tsunami absolutely rocked the house with hits from their brand new CD "New Wave Order".( These 2 bands will also be playing together at Festiki in Dayton, OH
http://festiki.surfohio.com/ )

Sunday was a blast as well. Thanx to all that stopped by and especially those folks who made purchases from our fabulous vendors. The new and improved 5 piece version of the Bikini Beachcombers performed a stellar set of Hapa Haole hits accompanied by their lovely Hula Dancer. The Sunday afternoon festivties concluded with the groovy sounds of the Astronauts.

The free raffles went over well as did the free pig roast each day!

We'll try to post up photos in the next day or so. We didn't get to take many pics cuz we waz too busy havin' fun, so if anyone has pics please post them here.

Thanx Again,

D&C
