The Tikiyaki Orchestra show at Trader Vic's Palo Alto was AMAZING. Thank you to the band for kicking Mucho Bootay. They are great guys, on and off stage. Thank you to everybody that came to the show, bought stuff from the vendors, ate, drank, had a good time.
It was a great night.

Just got home from the Tikiyaki show-it was the first time I've seen them, and they were awesome! They went on at 8:30 and played til after 11. Great show! Thanks, Tikiyaki, for finally making it to NorCal! Please come back when the weather is warm!!! We are all hoping for this to develop into a tiki weekender in Palo Alto. You guys are awesome!!

HAHAHA I think Tikiyaki played great as always.
I think the hard partying/drinking Nor. Cal. people kicked their own ass.

seeing some of the people dragging their butts out to the Pool area for Brunch today was quite hilarious.

I cut myself off around 11:30 last night.
But was up till 3 amish in the room party of Ron's (thanks for having us over)
and was really tired, but not dying this morning.

Great so see so many old friends,
and meet some new ones.
and I even talked about 5 or 6 surf crowd people into coming,
that were considering going to the Mermen cd release Party.
Kudos to those of you who came to Tikiyaki last night.

Heard a rumor about a Possible show up there by the Pool, and with other bands in the summer, that sounds like a Hoot, will be there for sure.

Jeff - it was great to see you. Let me know when you think you'll be up again! I'll make those cocktails for you!

Jim et al of Tikiyaki - Congrats. It kicked complete ass. You rocked (as usual) and it was a treat to see the band here in NorCal. Great to see all of you, too!

JP and Marie - Thanks for the Don's mug and for hanging out. It's been WAY too long. We need to get together more often.

Tiki Underground - Thanks for making it happen, boys!

Palo Alto Trader Vic's - What can I say? Yeah, baby! Thanks for taking spectacular care of us, and for that comped room... Dinah's Garden Hotel is stunning and very comfortable. I really enjoyed myself. Many, many mahalos for your hospitality.

Mai Tai and Coco Loco - I just love you guys. Thanks for making this weekend.

Hope to get pics posted tomorrow!

Suzanne

Glued to my hand all evening...(and well into the morning), the saddest casualty of the evening made it through thick and thin, chaos and creation, all night long...across the parking lot...and right through the doorway of room 105...when he very unceremoniously fell from my hand.



Tikiyaki and I partially buried him this morning in a lovely bamboo grove at Dinah's.



He lived a fast and furious life. Then sacrificed himself to make your Tikiyaki mug just a little bit more valuable. There are at most 49 in the world now.

Great show, and nice to see everybody! Here's some of our pics...








I think the tiki has an eye on the captain's drink.




Inflight commentary from Captain Marty Lush.






Break time.


Jonpaul refuels midair.




What other airline has the captain personally deliver lost luggage?

Thanks to the Tikiyaki Orchestra for winging up north. Let's do it again!

I just wanted to take a sober moment (and I have so few these days) to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone in the Bay Area!! Not only did we have one of the biggest blasts playing any show we've done so far, but the hospitality that was extended to us was overwhelming!! You guys made us feel like we were home. And best of all, thanks for the booze!

Also, Aquarj; your photos are friggin amazing!!!!!!!!! You actually made me look good!
