That was a great weekend. Thanks Rory, you throw a heck of a weekender.

We had a blast. We saw many friends, both new and familiar, over the weekend. Work will be a harsh reality tomorrow morning.

Lots of other thanks to go around also...crawl hosts for their libations, Marie for endlessly tending bar in the hot sun, Kirby, Polly, and Kelly for inviting me to help with the Rumpus Room party, vendors for the creativity they bring to the event, Jeff for setting the mood as DJ, Crazy Al for bringing energy as the MC, Tom for documenting our experiences on digital film, the drink crawl judges, and all the attendees who make Tiki Caliente what it is. I'm sure I'm forgetting another 27 or so people who make sure no one forgets the time they had at Tiki Caliente.

Highlights? Oh they are many.
* Hanging out with friends over a long weekend.
* The Hula Girls on Friday (Mai Kai Mystery Girl as a 7" before Tiki Oasis? Please?)
* The Sand Devils on Saturday (My head almost exploded when you played The Passion of Lovers).
* Hosting a room crawl for the first time.
* Listening to the Martini Kings while helping at the "Remote Rumpus Room". And The Alexander rocked.
* Sitting under the stars on Friday night.
* The Blue Moai.
* Listening to the Zen Tiki Lounge live broadcast podcast while driving home Monday.
* Slacktone ripping through a Sunday afternoon.
* The late Sunday beach ball poolside royale during the slack key set.

Mostly I'll remember the smiles and "good mornings" from everyone there, all weekend.

Photos to come.

Mahalo,

Kevin and Val

What a blast. Thanks Rory and everyone who made this the best. Viva Caliente! Can't wait to do it all again.

As Tiki G said so eloquently in an earlier post, we had a great time at Tiki C this weekend. We didn't arrive until Saturday, and were hit with the overwhelming tiki vibe from the moment we arrived. I say we go for the full 4-day experience next year!

Thanks to Rory for making us feel so welcome!

Sunday's beach ball fun was a terrific workout and fun as hell! It was good to see the people that worked so hard to make our experience, let down their hair and enjoy the cool pool and awesome musical interlude until sundown on Sunday.

Mahalo

Well, the Smokin' menehunes were there too! (Not just a hologram like Tupac at Coachella, nor a mirage brought by the desert heat!)


Anyway, we had a good time....Thank you Rory, and thank you Crazy Al for sitting in with us! (It's always great when you do!)

I hope everyone else enjoyed our saturday set?

Where is the Menehune love??????

We had a GREAT time at Tiki Caliente!!
Thanks for always giving The Hula Girls such a warm reception!

A very special thanks to Rory for having us back and treating us so well! Tiki Caliente is certainly a hi-light for us to be a part of every year!
Hopefully we'll have a new record for you guys in time for next year!!

Can't promise a Mai Kai Mystery Girl 7" by Oasis though. Haha...

I thought that the Smokin Menehunes in Palm Springs was the perfect throw back to a long past era.
I wanted to sit in front of the band and watch, but the heat/sun was too much for me
so I was over in my DJ booth/hideaway.
I did think that the Menehunes volume could have come up a bit.

I knew I'd forget something by posting so late at night! The Menehunes were certainly smokin' as well. I'm only bummed that I missed the 2nd half of your guys' set while setting up for an afternoon crawl.

I'm just now getting back to reality.
oooooof, what a weekend.
I don't know how some of you drink as much as you do.
I usually have a beer and a tiki drink or 2, and that's it.


Great Job to Rory and crew, in making another fabulous weekend.

Thanks to those who stopped by my secluded hideaway for a visit.
Thanks to those who brought me drinks.
and Thanks to Jonpaul and Ran for helping me break down my gear each night.

Jeff(btd)

I just saw this in the Tiki Music area:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=42968&forum=11&start=last&3

too bad it wasn't available for this past weekend.

Right?

I would have bought one, had they been available at Caliente. Martini kings rock!
