I was looking through the Maikai Gents site (http://www.mkgents.com), and noticed something about a Long Beach Tiki Festival in August 23-24. I've never heard of this event. Will this be the first time? I couldn't find anything else on this on the net. Can Uka Grogg shed some light?

Yes, the Long Beach Tiki Festival should be fun, and is the alternative event to go to if you aren't going to be making the trek over to Exotica 2003.

We did the Tiki Beach Fest last year and had a great time. selling stuff on the sand and just kicking back. Fred and his wife were some of the nicest people. I hope to participate there again.

Sounds great! Do I need to RSVP for anything (other than the luau)?
