Well, after the long winter, we're finally bringing back EDEN to TRADER VIC'S DOWNTOWN. This time around we'll be doing it monthly instead of weekly to make it more of an event. Same great drinks, same eclectic mix of music and, to celebrate the arrival of Spring, we're having the first EDEN of 2010 on THURSDAY 25th MARCH. Watch this space for more details and news of a very special party night in April......
Here's to Rum & Rhythm !
Jay

iTiki Launch Party: Trader Vicís LA Gives Away Tiki-themed iPhone Cases To First Fifty Customers...

March 25, 2010--Trader Vicís Los Angeles announces a special promotion whereby it will be giving away iTikiô iPhone cases to the first 50 customers on Thursday, March 25.

iTiki is more than just an iPhone case. iTiki is a South Pacific deity from the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii, who protects iPhones from enemies. iTiki actually transforms your iPhone into a tiki by wrapping the phone in a snug-fitting silicone skin, designed to look like traditional Polynesian tikis.

John Valencia, Big Kahuna at Trader Vicís LA, said, "We love these iTiki cases and we want our fans to know about them too. The first fifty folks who come in on March 25th will get their very own iTiki case. They just need to get here in time while we still have some."

The cases were painstakingly designed over a 6-month period, with a careful eye towards making every single detail capture the fun and exotic nature of tiki art and culture.

Valencia added, "What better place than Trader Vicís, the home of the original Mai Tai, to let the world know about one more way to tiki-fy your life."

Also appearing at Trader Vicís on March 25th will be DJ Jay Strongmanís EDEN event. The pioneer in the booming club London club scene, Strongman mixes house, electro, disco, world music, hip hop, funk, northern soul and rock music that keep crowds entertained all night. Strongman is often requested for nightclubs, private parties and events for Madonna, Pink, Playboyís Hugh Hefner, Whitney Houston Sony Music and MTV Europe. Now Trader Vicís at L.A. LIVE patrons wonít even have to pay a cover to be treated to his weekly performances.

The cases are only available for the first fifty customers so customers should arrive promptly at 8pm to guarantee their own case.

iTiki is available in two colors:
(*) Pacific -- the cool blue of the ocean.
(*) Koa -- the warmth of Hawaiian wood.

iPhone users who canít make the event can acquire their own iTiki at
http://www.tikicase.com for $29.97. iTiki can be shipped anywhere in the world.

More information about both products can be found at: http://www.tikicase.com

That Tikicase is too funny! I want one in "Koa" (is that Hawaiian for "orange"?) The perfect frame for the Beachbum Berry application! What else can be put into the Tiki's mouth as an application: A Hula-dancing Wahine? Fire? Common Hawaiian phrases, spoken in a deep Tiki voice?

Hi bigbro,

I'm one of the two guys behind the iTiki cases. I'm glad you like 'em, especially since it took so long to get the design just right.

Koa is a type of wood found primarily in Hawaii, making it _very_ expensive. It has a lovely bright shine to it which is very distinctive. (see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Taylor_Swift.jpg ) The orange was simply the closest we were willing to come to a wooden brown. (We really did think about making a proper wooden texture one, but it would have been very dull.)

As for what you can put in his mouth, I do have (and hope to post them online in a bit) some wallpapers you can put on your iPhone so that you can still see the back of his throat even when he's on your phone. When you get one of these cases on the 25th (or from the site later) and want a wallpaper, just email me or send me a message here.

Terence

I love those cases. I definately would like to order one as well in Koa. And would love a wallpaper as well. Should I just go to your website and purchase them from there? Great work

Hi!

I'll go bug Tim (my brother and the other guy behind iTiki) about whether the site's ready for orders and get back to you shortly. (Promise!) I don't think we were prepared for the photos of the cases to get out ahead of the party proper, but we love the enthusiasm.

Thanks!

The quest for Exotica continues next THURSDAY 25th MARCH with EDEN @ TRADER VIC'S LOS ANGELES, from 8pm 'til late. Besides the chance to snag an iTiki case, to relax in the tropical atmosphere of Trader Vic's and to relish an amazing cocktail or three, there'll be an aural melange of Tiki Bar friendly sounds.

Listen out for versions of "TABOO", "QUIET VILLAGE" and "CARAVAN" from these albums plus plenty more contemporary and classic Exotica and lots more ....
