Just got back from Trader Vic's IB&G. They've donated these nifty vintage shakers as a prize for the Tiki Bowl.

Do we have a schedule yet? We need to start making plans for heading over there on Friday and we also have friends in Sarasota that would like to join in the fun.

Trader Rick, my right hand man for this event went to the extremes of crashing a canoe and knee surgery just so he wouldn't have to help out this weekend. He was to run Tiki Bowl, but we'll muddle though without him. The only good thing is my game doesn't look so bad when not compared to his. I've simplified the schedule a bit as a result.

Friday the evening starts at 6, music beginning at 6:15 poolside at the Golden Host Resort, next door to the Bahi Hut. There will be some freebies and snacks. The pool is accessed from the parking area by a walk between the rooms and front office. Live Hawaiian music by Fatu, Music will continue to about 8:45 when we will begin showing the vintage 50's Jungle Girl movies. In between is plenty of time to slip into the historic 1956 Bahi Hut and sip some of it's legendary mai tais. (Warning-they are STRONG). The rooms are inexpensive enough for Jungle Fever participants that even locals may want to stay there rather than drive after the mai tais....

We may have a couple vendors Friday by the pool. Any other folks that wish to sell or swap tiki, bring it along for free tables to set up on.

Saturday morn at 10:45 we will rendezvous at Sarasota Jungle Gardens for a tour of one of Florida's few remaining roadside attractions. Cost for JF participants is 12 bucks a head. You must bring the amount in cash and please have exact change. To obtain that rate we have to pay in one lump sum and all go though the turn styles at one time. We will enter the park at 11am promptly.

Saturday early afternoon is free for pool or beach. I will get together a list of possible tiki quest possibilities for those who wish to hunt down something for the collection. At 4 pm I will be giving a limited peek at my collection, stop me for the address if you'd like to swing by.

At 6pm it's off to Trader Vic's for some beef cho cho, mai tais and dinner. They have a band that starts at 7pm, but I am unsure of it's sound. Bill Dillard (Bohemian) of Go11 media is setting up a green screen for the evening with free photos and digital output of the tiki scene there.

At 8:30, those that are signed up to do Tiki Bowl (see sign up sheet Friday at the welcome party) will leave for Sarasota Lanes for the first annual bowling event. There is a prize for best attire, and best overall score. As Trader Vic's and Sarasota Lanes both close, it's back to the Bahi Hut for a night cap.

Sunday morning at 10am, it's breakfast with Elvis at the Waffle Stop, where Elvis ate in the late 50's and they still sell his signature (ulp) breakfast. Not for the weak.

This is our first year taking the event past our little group of friends. We are working on getting sponsors, lining up acts and creating unique collectibles for next year's event. Key to growing an event that takes in different venues and alcohol will be a trolley to cart everyone around together.

This year, however, please have a designated driver. Party safe and have a great time in Sarasota.

In lieu of an admission fee this year, if you have a vintage, or vintage looking tiki or tiki mug you'd like to donate to the new display at the Bahi Hut, that would be swell. Mostly browns, no bright colors, please. There will be a tote out Friday evening by the Golden Host pool for donations.

It was a good time for all who came. Everything we had on the schedule happened. Thanks for those that came out. Stand by for some images.

Everyone convened poolside Friday at the Golden Host for some live music by Fatu and his Don Ho style sounds.

We even had a vendor. Justin from the Hive had a table of goodies from lost wax cast tiki pendants to Thor prints.

The Bahi Hut always delivers a trip back in time, and Trader Vic's delivers a great 1944 mai tai. The special talk at Jungle Gardens featured archival images and a little known fact that the star birds there were purchased from the California prison system!

Even without Trader Dick, Tiki Bowl went off with awards going to Chris and George for best shirts. They received a vintage pair of shakers donated by Trader Vic's IB&G. Bill won best overall score and was crowned Tiki Bowl Champ 2010. We even had a vendor. Justin from the Hive had a table of goodies from lost wax cast tiki pendants to Thor prints.

As we drove past the University exit last night on our way back from the horrid flatliner city of Marco Island, I mentioned to the Amber Love Goddess about the event at the Bahi Hut and she sighed and said out loud, "Our stupid family gets in the way of any good tiki time." And I used that frustration to beg off any trip to Marco EVER for the rest of my life.

I sure was thinking of that little bar and Jungle Gardens all day Saturday during the rest of the daughter's move. I hope you guys had an awesome time and please keep me on the email list for future events. Even if it's just a one night hookup down there somewhere.
