Thanks for the Pics everybody,
In my haste packing at 2 am in the morning before going to sleep for a few hours, before the trip, I forgot to pack my camera, and my sunglasses.
Doh....

keep the pics, and hopefully video coming.

Started our road trip watching the sun rise from the Cabazon Dinosaurs


Beautiful sunrise through Palm Springs area


Saw this guy on in the middle of the desert


Finally made it to the promised land


For dinner, I had seafood in the middle of the desert


The Tikiyaki Orchestra performance was stellar as always!



Good Friends... Good Times...



The following day we went to Taliesen West by Frank Lloyd Wright



Followed by a walk around Old Town Scottsdale


And the glorious Hotel Valley Ho




Capped off the weekend with Happy Hour at Trader Vic's



The Relight the Night event was EPIC and the Kon-Tiki was incredible!

@ PollyPop, NO SLEEP TIL TUCSON!! Man you guys are hardcore! Let me guess, you made it home Monday morning just in time to go to work.

Kon Tiki Mai-Tais must bring out the love in me. I lost count of how many people I said "I love you man" to.

BBS, please elaborate on the Meet Rack. My intel informs me this is an S&M themed dive bar.

Was TC hanging out there ?? Man, there's a lot of cool stuff in Tucson.

Wow! What a great event! Or, at least I think it was... I found a bunch of pix on my camera that I only vaguely remember taking...

We started out our trip on Friday, stopping in Scottsdale to visit Drift Lounge...


... and then Trader Vic's.



The next morning, we headed out to Tucson, but stopped in at the Fry's Electronics, because it's so cool, and when are we going to be in Scottsdale again?


Snapped a couple of pix of Kon TIki before the crowd descended, as we roamed the restaurant in awe of its magnificence!



Then, got some pix of the evening's events... (this is the part that's as blurry in my mind as these next two pix...)



The relight sign pix...




And caught this shady character lurking about in a restricted area...


After it was all done, due to vending and other circumstances, I realized I spent probably less than 20 minutes inside the Kon Tiki the whole night...

Mark and I would like to thank everyone for coming out and making Relight the Night an amazing event! There was a lot of fire but everyone was really basking in the glow of the love.

We are truly grateful to the orchestration of the Tikiyakis, thee swank of the Bastards, the shrimps of the Chaperone, the flam of the Chen and the dis of the Illusionists.
