And of course, cocktail concoctions by Suzanne!

OK, Let's try this again. Exotica music is alive an kickin it. But you gotta come out to support it if it is going to survive.

DJ Mermaid - Lounging in Otto's Grotto at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge
Wednesday, February 2, 2011, 7pm - closing

DJ Mermaid brings her eclectic selection of loungeland sounds to Forbidden Island! From Esquivel to Lyman to Ferrante & Tiecher to early electronic music, Mermaid transports us to other shores, and even other worlds, while Otto takes a dive into the duality of Exotica vinyl and tropical cocktail drinking. Don't try this at home!

Admission: FREE

Hey gang! Come join me for a live performance black velvet painting at Otto's Grotto on Wednesday, March 2nd. Join me for a cocktail as I paint Tiki Bob hang'n ten on black velvet with an original MP carved frame.

Chill out with Otto's killer sounds and harass MP as I try and create a velvet masterpiece under menacing public scrutiny. LOL

The painting will be raffled off with 5 tickets for 5 bucks. I will start painting at 7 and
hope to finish around 11. So come out with a few extra bucks and steal this
painting.

Check back here for more Surfn Bob and frame updates getting ready for BIG WEDNESDAY!
