I had a great time there yesterday even if it was only for an hour.

Highlight might have been Jeff Berry cutting in line in front of me so he could get to the "VIP" section.

Last night was an absolute blast!

Thank you to the Buhen family for their hospitality, for all the regulars who worked hard last night, for all the patrons over the years... the Tiki Ti is something really special and I'm glad I can say I was there to celebrate the 50th anniversary!

From my phone...
I was excited to see familiar faces in line!

King Kukulele

Some of my loot!


And some snaps from my camera










The man who started it all









Me with Holden, Crazy Al, and Anders

Still a solid line




Mahalo to everyone at the Ti last night That was one for the record books!

Looks like fun...sorry to have missed the anniversary celebration. Due to work load and a previous obligation, I couldn't get there until about 7:45pm, and after being in the line that didn't move for 30 min., and operating on 3 hours sleep with work again today, I headed home.

Today is the first day I might have a chance to be there around 5 or 6, but I'm sure I'm a day late and a dollar short. Is anybody from TC going to be there tonight, around 4-7, or later? I know the mugs are gone, at this point I'm just hoping for a sizzle stick.

Great photos hulahoney, thank you!

Congawa, they should have 50 mugs per day unless they decided to blow them all out yesterday.

Yes, great pix Hulahoney!!

Quote from Tiki Ti on FB last night: "Tiki Ti is simultaneously happy that tonight's crowd bought the remaining supply of mugs, and sad that we will have to wait for three weeks for more. Seriously."

Looks like you're gonna hafta wait a spell...

Yeah, they decided to blow them all out last night instead of waiting...I can tell, my signing hand hurts! Wow what a blast! EVERYONE was there last night - at one point, once they made it in!

After being there the second day from 4:00 pm on, I hit a wall around 9:00 pm. Enjoying so much accolades and good company, and lots of vessels full of frothy goodness...



...things began to look a little fuzzy...



..even though I was being held up by such upstanding Tiki Ti citizens as Beachbum Berry and Martin Cate!:


(..with back up by Sabu)

But it sure was satisfying to sit with Jeff Berry under our name tag dated 10 years ago, and muse about how we never would have guessed that his research here would inspire a new wave of mixologists all over the world, and that I would drink out of a Tiki Ti logo mug I designed!
Thank you Tiki Ti for being there!

Thank You for the shout-out, Mr. Nichols!:

http://www.lamag.com/askchrisblog/blogentry.aspx?BlogEntryID=10232136

Here is one occasion where a flash actually yielded better results than non-flash photography, the photo that Cass took of Adrian (Polynesian Pop) posing with the "V.I.P." corner gang!:



Would you look at those shirt colors! If that photo doesn't spell "Happiness is being at the Tiki Ti" I don't know what does!

It truely was a great event yesterday.

I even had fun waiting in line, chatting it up with everyone.

I just wish TikiSkaBro and I could have hung out a little longer.

Thanks for sharing all the great photos.
