A friend of mine named Marissa is putting on a show in Modesto some TC folks might be interested in. Rooms are going quickly apparently... Here's the info:

ROCK-A-HULA POOL-A-PARTY LUAU & CAR SHOW

Here are the details to the event:

It’s a *21 AND OVER* two day event that consists of a pre-party on Friday Night October 16th at MINNIE'S TIKI Restaurant & Bar for a meet and greet of tikiphiles, cool Rockabilly kids and anybody that admires the TIKI culture. Drink and appetizer specials will be available from 6-10pm with the Cherry Bombs Car Club DJing & spinning Exotica, Rockabilly & blues. Saturday is the ultimate pool party with live music, Djs (including VIDA LEE, DJ HIGH YELLOW, DR. SCOTT & MISS CHERRY BOMB), tiki & hawaiian based vendors, a pre-1964 car show, rum-based limbo contests, raffles and a choice of roasted pig or hawaiian burger lunch plate luau with full island sides. The TIKI COCKTAIL LOUNGE will be offering great traditional tiki drinks at a discounted price.

Where is it?

The Rock-A-Hula Pool-A-Party will be located in Modesto, CA at the ROADWAY INN (formerly Ken Kimes' Tropics Hotel). The address is 936 McHenry AVE. Reservation Telephone # (209)523-7701. The TIKI COCKTAIL LOUNGE is located directly in front of the Roadway Inn (932 McHenry Ave) and MINNIE'S TIKI RESTAURANT is located .7 miles away at 107 McHenry Avenue.

When is it?

The pre-party at Minnie's Restaurant & Bar is on Friday, October 16th, 2009 from 6-10pm. The actual Rock-A-Hula Pool-A-Party is Saturday, October 17th, 2009 from noon-2am.

What do I bring?

Bring a lawn chair for your comfort on Saturday for the pool party. Bring a beach towel, a swimsuit and sunblock!

What do I wear?

VINTAGE HAWAIIAN clothing is HIGHLY recommended. This is a HAWAIIAN LUAU at a 1950's establishment. Get festive!!

How much is it to enter my pre-1964 billet-free Traditional Rod or Kustom?

It's FREE to bring your car to the event, but bear in mind that only the first 50 cars will be able to be in the car show as parking spaces are limited (please see car show requirements below). Gate opens at 11am for cars to come in.

What is there to do?

1. Check out the amazing show of traditional style Rods, Kustoms, and Classics.

2. Listen to our live bands playing outside over looking the TIKI COCKTAIL LOUNGE with outside bar and pool party with live Rockabilly DJs spinning all day! Special guest DJs Dr. Scott & Miss Cherry Bomb spinning SAVAGE SOUNDS & DJ High Yellow spinning a great eclectic mix of Exotica, Blues, Rockabilly, and more!) See the Original Line-up of the HAYWOODS, Exotiki, The Pendletons, The Royal Deuces, Lil' Bit & the Customatics & Charlie Roman & the Teenage Werewolves!

3. Walk through our vendor booths selling: traditional vintage, Hawaiian clothing, carved TIKI sculptures & kitsch, pin-striped art and more!

4. Special Guest & Pinstriper LOPES KREATIONS will be on site to pinstripe your vintage handbags, Rods or Kustoms.

5. Enjoy the mid-century historical sites and views that the TROPICS MOTEL (now the Roadway Inn), Minnie's and the Tiki Cocktail Lounge have to offer.

6. Pool-side limbo contest with grand prize.

7. Tasty roasted pig luau or Hawaiian burger with island sides.

8. And more to come so stay tuned.......

What Hotels are close by the events?

The SUBURBAN LODGE is our ‘economically friendly’ overflow hotel with $50 room rates located 50 feet down from the Roadway Inn at 912 McHenry Avenue. When the Roadway Inn books up, this is the place to go! Sparkling pool and clean rooms!

How much is it to get into the Rock-A-Hula Pool-A-Party?

$20.00 at the gate gets you the full roasted pig or hawaiian burger luau lunch plate plus the all day event, music and Djs. $10 gets you the event, music & Djs, but no food. This is strictly 21 & OVER!!! Only 150 food tickets left. Food PRE-PAY with Paypal tickets available soon.

How much are Vendors spots?

10 X 10 = $50.00 Email:
rockahulapoolaparty@yahoo.com for a vendor form. Only 4 spots left. There are NO cancellation refunds, so make sure this is the event you want to do (but who DOESN'T want to vend this event???). Money orders accepted ONLY.

Can I bring in my own cooler and drinks (alcoholic)?

Unfortunately you MAY NOT bring alcohol into the venue. The owner of the motel and bar will NOT risk a $10,000 fine if you bring your own drinks. But trust me, we WILL be offering great drink deals!!! So stay tuned for more info.

What are the car show requirements?

* Pre '64 TRADITIONAL style Rods, Classics & Kustoms ONLY * No visible billet anything! Especially wheels! * No digital gauges * No IFS on fenderless cars

Link to the hotel reservations page. Be sure to mention "Luau" when you book your hotel room for a discount.

If the Roadway Inn fills up, the Suburban Lodge is matching the TIKI rate and they are 50 feet down the sidewalk!

Hi Everyone!

Marissa here with the ROCK-A-HULA POOL-A-PARTY!

Wanted to let you all know that Saturday night at the Tropics (Rodeway Inn) has sold out, but the Suburban Lodge right next door is matching the TIKI RATE. Please feel free to call and get your room. They have a GREAT pool and nice, clean rooms. Please call 209-524-7331. The Rodeway Inn still has rooms available for the FRIDAY NIGHT PRE-PARTY which will be held at Minnie's Tiki Bar & Restaurant from 6-10pm. Minnie's will have great tropical drink specials (try THE JERK, their house specialty) and munch on some wonderful appetizers. The CHERRY BOMBS CAR CLUB will be spinning the best in Exotica, Americana & Rockabilly. Hope I get to meet a great crew of Tikiphiles at this event!!

Going to be vending at Rock-A-Hula, and I've got some new stuff debuting, including this new resin pendant, inspired by the old Stockton Islander sign.



This Stockton Islander pendant measures about 3" high by 3.5" wide.

I'm pretty obsessed with the old Stockton Islander, so now I'm thinking about doing some Stockton Islander art...

Sounds like this will be a great show, looking forward to seeing the Nor Cal Ohana again!

Boy-o-boy, kids, that sounds like a great event, in the spirit of the old Tropics Tiki Oasis!

Where are the vending areas? Back nook? I know that setup needs to be completed by 11am, but there's no mention what time vending ends. Curious. Let me know. Thanks.
I'm bringing a handful of baby moai's as requested from buyers at the F.I. Exotic Bazaar (parking lot sale).

Did they ever get the pre-pay thing going??? I checked out the site and can't find a link or any mention of a prepay thing. Do we just line up around 11 and hope to get a plate of pig? Can't wait!!!

Prepay ended a few days ago. You were able to purchase a ticket for about a month. No worries though, you can pay for your meal there.

Should be fun!

Aloha everybody!

Just got back from the pre-party at Minnies, hanging out with Retrodiva and the Nor Cal Ohana! Tomorrow should be a blast!

Had to head out to finish up framing some new work, inspired by the car show aspect of the event!


Go, Tiki, Go!


RIPmobile!

Sorry for the cruddy pictures, wanted to get these up quickly, and had to sacrifice quality! But come out tomorrow and check 'em out in person!
