I am BUCK in town, and am looking forward to see everyone on Thirstday, and imbibe my first Navy Grog in a while. And to hoist a glass to Marie's speedy and complete recovery.

Good to see that all those ritual sacrifices made to Pele in our backyard fire pit have paid off and Sven is back in the USA. Looking forward to Thursday night and also glad that the neighbors have stopped complaining about the smell of burning.

A while back, I had the honor of an advanced listen of Sven's latest project, and let me tell you...
YOU WILL WANT THIS CD!!! It's a superb compilation of rarities, plus fascinating liner notes and photos.

IT'S A MUST FOR YOUR SUMMER TIKI LISTENING PLEASURE... And it does seem that our Tiki summer is arriving extra early this year, what with all the parties, concerts and shows that seem to be happening.

Congratulations, Sven, on your latest achievement in Tiki preservation!

Yup, The Beachbum is in town, and as an added bonus to the event, for all those who did not make it to the "REMIXED" signing at La Cana in downtown LA last night, Jeff Berry will offer his remaining tomes at Trader Vic's (for 25.- bucks cash only) tonite.

This is a fitting addition to tonight's happening, since many recipes in this tome relate to the songs on the "Sound of Tiki" CD, as I pointed out in this post:

Aww, that's just global warming, bringing tiki summer to us sooner! Pretty soon tiki season will be a year-round thing!

And OH MY TIKI GODS!!!
What a great night of tiki!!!

Almost too much fun for one night!
Sven and the Sound of TIki!
Beachbum Berry and Remixed! (picked up both CD and book, and had the privilege of having them signed!)
Jay Strongman and the awesome tiki tunes!
And all the TC ohana who came out to support! (Mahalos to Adrian for recommending the Singapore Symphony! Whadda drink!)

All that and Manuel and I made the last Metro train home! (and didn't have to tromp through downtown like the last time we metroed it to TV and stayed too late...)

I know lots of people snapped pix... please post!!!

Mahalo!

Good times last night,
and a great surprise that Beachbum Berry was there too,
as I needed to get his Book.

Yes, photos please! Thank you Jay and John and Pallava for hosting this fine event, and thanks everyone for coming out! It was a great evening! I have to apologize that my communication abilities were slightly hampered by not only jet lag, but a laryngitis I must have caught on the plane:
"The most common symptom of either form is hoarseness that may, within several days, progress to partial or total loss of voice"

The nature of the event made it difficult to follow the commonly known cures:

-Avoid public speaking during recovery
-Be aware that whispering puts a greater strain on the vocal cords than normal speaking
-Drink warm, soothing liquids (but do not drink alcoholic beverages) !!!?

I wasn't TRYING to whisper - but I was. But I still had a great time, seeing all my friends and Ohana after such a long absence.
The crowning convergence was that Jeff Berry was in town, and we could hang and sell our current publications together! It was like the old days. Earlier that day at another local joy juice joint:


Old friends meet

Cool! History in the making right there... Maybe I'll catch the Mexico City -- Los Angeles flight at 3! Not. Have fun and have a drink for me.

Edited: Ups! This happened last night! Sorry, have a drink for me anyway!
