In case ya'll haven't heard, we will be having a special raffle at the Chef on Sunday to benefit Catnap from the Heart cat shelter. There will be 6 different items in the raffle, each item will have a different colored ticket. This way you only have to buy tickets for what you are interested in, although I must say they are all fab items. Tickets will be $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00!



Hot News Flash...

There's a bit of a change on how raffle tix will be purchased, I was looking at this all ass-backwards.

It has been brought to my attention that there is a much easier way to run ticket sales...

..raffle tickets will still be $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00. Instead of a bunch of different colored tickets, we'll have all the raffle items numbered as well as jars numbered. So this way all you have to do is buy your tickets, then split them apart, you take the side that says "KEEP THIS TICKET" and put it in your pocket or what ever safe place you'd like, then put the other in the jar of your choosing! Okie Dokie?

...here's the next item in the Raffle graciously donated by Betty & Duane at Chef Shangri-La. It's a Eugene Savage print that hung in the Chef for over 34 years...






...this sucker is huge @ 36" x 60". The lighting was really poor in the back room where this is stored so it was hard to get any detailed pics.

Check back tomorrow for another great raffle item!

Wow, that Savage print is kind of an iconic bit of the Chef's tiki decor, I am surprised they are letting that go.
Lucky winner will have something very cool.

Wish I could join you all this weekend, but as usual I have work obligations for a lot of the time.
Such is the music biz.
Had a long conversation with Mel, who explained why (understandably given the logistics of this event) day-passes or partial-event passes aren't available.
Too bad, though.

Might catch up with the bus and pop my head in to Hala Kahiki for a few minutes on Saturday. Hope to see you all there.

...check out this next item, for you craft beer lovers...




...it's a 1/2 gallon bottle of Monkey Business Brewery's Russian Imperial Stout that comes in a highly collectible vintage screen printed Meister Brau Bottle.
Lotsa great items and a great cause as well, so be sure to save some Moola for the raffle at the Chef on Sunday!

In addition to the "Tourist Catt" we also made another one-off custom mug that will be in the raffle as well. We call this one "Luau Catt":




Looking forward to seeing you all there!
