Great pictures Michael! We had a great time. Thanks for putting on a great event - again and again! And I think Bill was actually probably showing either pictures of the party the night before (which you would have been in ) or the TV warehouse sale. Either way, he is our resident documentarian of all of the great things going on in the Bay Area and elsewhere!

Couldn't this be a twice a year event? We had to work this weekend and missed out on all the fun.

Hi,

Just wanted to say I had a nice time at the event, out from Boston! great timing that it happened while I was in San Fran. Great to see Humu, and meet bongo fury in his hut, see Otto again, and meet Mai Tai (can I be invited to some of those crawls!?) Suzanne, I did a double take seeing you out there! The only wish here is that the full menu was available; I finally got out there to FI, and it was super limited on the drinkos. Next time I suppose.

saludos!
Mr. Ho

I had a terrific time. Thanks to Michael, Suzanne, and all the crew! It was my first Tiki event without the ex-husband anywhere around. Thanks everyone for making me feel welcome and not like a leper. Tiki ohana are the warmest people around. I am lucky to count you as my friends.

Big Mahalos to Michael who treated me like visiting royalty, the Forbidden Island staff...Suzanne for the extra special fall drinks (loved the one with the pineapple falernum) the crazy bowl drink with the huge flame, the off-the-menu swizzle and many more. Somehow I ended all 5 nights at FI. Thanks to all that came by and said hello and bought Okolehao's Black Velvets and some of my stuff, and my little brother "Hurricane" Vic.

Special thanks to Mai Tai & Coco Loco who put me up for a few days and helped me put on a few pounds at all the local diners. The food & drinks at the Conga Lounge were great. It was really nice to meet all the Northern California Ohana that I had not met at other events plus the good folks from Wisconsin. Great food, great drinks, great people. Ray, Michelle, Scott, Brenda, Chad, Jenny, Mel, Ron, Jen, Bill, Maria, Caroline, Rob, Doug, Stacey, Will, and.....and.....

More thanks to Juan at Trader Vic's Palo Alto for the "extra" special cocktails. Also Pat at Judd's Hill and late night pie & burgers with Swamp Fire and Happy Chi....

I will try hard not to wait 15 years between visits and I will bring Mrs. Fury with me next time.

Aloha!

Thank you Michael and everyone at the Forbidden Island for an awesome time. Also thank you
to everyone to came by to say hello, pick up something and Mahalos to everyone who took some of the
free monkeypod bowls home. Purging all those bowls helps me with my awful thrift store sickness
I borrowed a few picks from Enid Westbergs flickr page to show some of the pieces that have new homes now.
Enid I hope you dont mind.

What a good time! Thanks again everyone, MP
