ALOHA from Frimley! Bit short notice but...



As a ‘Sophisticated Suburban Savage’ who is about to hit fifty...Yep, that’s right, the BIG 5-0 (Frimley style not Hawaii!)...I thought it’d be much more appropriate to celebrate the fact that I’ve been around for half a century with a quiet, quality Mai-Tai in Trader Vic’s.

The alternative was to have a party at the local Oddfellows Hall where I could embarrass myself on the dancefloor, with the distinct possibility of putting my back out to boot! Not for me thank you very much!!

If you’d like to head on over to Trader Vic’s and join me that’d be swell, so hopefully I’ll see you in the Tiki Room FRIDAY 15 JANUARY, we'll be there all night so turn up when you fancy. MAHALO!

Trader Jim - Make mine a Mai-Tai!

Hi Jim - a big hello from andrew (blue.octopus).
I hope the big 5-0 goes well and wish you all the best.
i'd like to stop by and share a Mai-Tai with you but timing is not great - our dog was very very ill over Christmas and we have a followup appointment this Friday evening at the vetinary hospital.
however if we do get back early enough and we're not too tired we'll try to stop by.

best regards
Andrew

Aloha Andrew! Sorry to hear about your dog, hope the little fellow gets better. It'd be great to see you again if you can pop on over but if not we'll have a good excuse for another BRITIKI get together!!

Take care - Trader Jim (Make mine a Mai-Tai!).

Aloha Tiki Racer! Looking forward to a good night at Trader Vic's as I've got some Tiki virgins from my old punk days coming along...it should be a blast! Half a century old and still drinking Mai-Tais and listening to The Cramps & The Lurkers...I think I'm doin' alright!!

See you later for Mai-Tai TR - Trader Jim (Make yours what I'm having!).

HELLO !? PICTURES SOON ??!!

And can we try to organise a big london event this year, please ? I would so much love to go back for a week end to all the places, have some great concerts... Can anyone organise that, or at least, a big Trader Vics dinner with all the tiki folks ? I can help for sure.

The London Luau was really one of the best tiki event on earth, it's really too bad we don't have any other annual event there.

(sorry, I feel depressed and I miss a lot my european tiki brothers and sisters) !!

Make mine a London sour
Virani

Fab cake exotic tramp

So sorry not to have made it. It was Chris's 40th and we'd made plans for a weekend in Cornwall.

We should definitely plan a summer event and all get together.
