Getting plastered on some yummy rum concoctions helps, of course. But leave any "home-made Falernum" attitude at your home bar . The tradition of this Polynesian pop haven is singular and unassailable.


OK, I want everyone to contemplate the Bigbro's Tiki words of wisdom above. Just replace the word "Mai Kai" with "Hong Kong Inn". And keep in mind Uncle Jimmy and Uncle Tommy are reading this thread. They've been keeping it real for almost half a century just for you. Don't piss them off !!!

Bongo,

Um, does Mickee know about that photo!? Me and Mrs. Dustycajun will be down for a pre-dinner stop at the Rincon Room if it's open.

The bus got bigger! At this rate, where gonna need a bigger Hong Kong Inn!

Jeff (btd), the show starts at 9:00. Google maps shows the travel time from the Tonga Hut to the Hong Kong Inn at 56.7 miles, 1 hour 5 minutes via US-101. Gives you and hour to drink, eat and be Mary.

What if I don't want to be Mary?
why can't she just be herself?

I'm going to be so bummed I have to miss this, as will the other Ding Dong Devils. We have a recording date set up for that weekend that's the only weekend available for months around it in Dave Klein's schedule (he's on the road with Agent Orange a lot these days). Sounds like everyone should have a blast, and I know (from previous experience) that John-O leaves no t's uncrossed or i's undotted in his planning of an event to maximize everyone's simultaneous blend of great times and historical enlightenment!

Add me to the list. As I live in Ventikitura County, I'm closer to the HKI than the Tonga Hut so I'll drive myself.

Hi John,
Sounds like a lot of fun. If you still have room for two more, could you put us on the list?
We're in Thousand Oaks, and we'll be driving up!

Glenn and Carol

BTD.....don't know which of the ladies will show up but this one will be behind the bar for sure (dressed for the Hong Kong Inn last year)...




Congawa......we think we have a solution. Bring the band and record "Live From The Rincon Room" otherwise we will miss you. At this point we wanted to keep the crowd around 50 so we need to cut off the people driving up and let John-O finish filling the bus. Everyone that has already posted is in. We also have a few friends coming. To make a proper Drifter's Reef it will cost us about $4.50 per cocktail (this is why most people don't do open home parties anymore.....even with guest bartenders. 100-150 guests and a couple of cocktails each in a shift will cost you a grand plus food). No cost to you but we may put out a tip jar for those able to help out.



Hong Kong Inn lamp.....wait till you see their mural....

The best cocktail....usually they run out of pineapples early so hopefully they will stock up.


John-O is correct on the food and drink. This is 1960s Chinese food and drink. I have been going there over 25 years and nothing has changed. Screw Yelp! Where else on the west coast can you see a free (except a small 20% surcharge on drinks during show) Polynesian floor show every Friday & Saturday night? An experience not to be missed!

For those driving we will open the bar at 5:00. Send me a PM for directions if you are not following the bus after the Hong Kong Inn.

Kia Orana!
