"MadDog Mike- you are welcome too!"

Texan hospitality and Tiki - what a great combination! Unfortunately, it's a bit of a drive for me

------Nope, it was back when Texas was called Pangea. GROG went to Pangea High, home of the Fighting Mastodons. Then GROG went to Mammoth University. We were the Long Tusks and our rivals were stupid Neanderthals who were into agriculture. They were called "Agates".

Aloha!

Party update:

When was the last time you heard an exotica band in Austin? Like never, right? Well you will if you come to the Tiki Round-up in September! Joining the entertainment lineup for that evening is John Frum Cargo Cult. They will be playing a few exotica standards and a few original tunes inspired by Martin Denny among others. Interested in the band's name? Check out these wiki links:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Frum
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_cult

For those who have not attended before, this annual tiki extravaganza happens at my house in Austin aka The Enchanted Lagoon. Tikiphiles and the tiki curious gather from all over Texas and points beyond to celebrate all that is retro polynesian pop. An open outdoor A-frame bar serves authentic classic tropical cocktails to guests who are free to wander the grounds and lounge in the tiki room inside. This year we have tiki favorite DJ Tropicana Joe spinning tunes of the islands, an exotica band that will enchant you(John Frum Cargo Cult, mentioned above), and a kick ass surf band that will make you dance(The Del-Vipers). Folks dress in their vintage Hawaiian wear or casual tropical attire, but bring their bathing suits if they fancy a dip in the pool. We always have a drawing for cool tiki prizes. Amazing local artists display their work, many pieces of which are for sale. (More info coming soon on who will be here this year- and it's exciting!) And there is food. Like pulled pork sliders, spring rolls, coconut chicken skewers, Kahlua frosted cookies, etc. All food, drink, entertainment and raffle prizes are free. We only ask that folks help us cover our costs with a small donation.

And now for something completely different...


We got Dole Whip!! That's right, the delicious, delectable and delicate pineapple soft serve delicacy that is served outside of the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland. Rum float anyone?



AND as we speak a section of the backyard is being transformed into "Huna Li'ili'i Kolepa", which translates to "Hidden Little Golf." Hope you will give it a swing (if you can find it)!

We're looking for a few volunteers to help out. Please let me know if you're willing to lend a hand. It would only be an hour or so shift, not all night!

Everyone who will have items for sale, please confirm with me, even if you think I know. I'd like to get a few more details to include in my next email.

As usual, we encourage anyone who can to bring a food or drink item to share. That would be awesome, but is not required. To help defray our costs we are asking for a donation of $15/person. Thank you in advance for this. We cover the expenses for this party out of our pocket and don't make a profit. Paypal is set up if you don't want to think about it that night. Just log into your Paypal account, select Send Money and enter this email: Koitiki@austin.rr.com. This isn't my regular email so direct questions to jkwp@austin.rr.com.

And please, please RSVP - here on Tiki Central or to TxTiki@gmail.com so that we can purchase food and drink appropriately.

Please note this is essentially an adult party. We have a large yard that is dark with multiple water features that are not fenced in any way. There is no lifeguard and our house is not childproofed. We have quite a bit of booze flowing and the music will get loud. That being said, if you cannot find a sitter for the keikis, we will not turn you away!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Koitiki

Check out the awesome artwork and wares that will be available at the party!

Central Texan and Tiki Centralite Amate will be bringing his amazing carved tikis. I know more than a few of us locals are the proud owners of one or more of Amate's pieces. You can see his work here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=43484&forum=21&start=last&8

This guy has already found a home.



Crash says she's working on a line of t-shirts and hopes to have some ready.

Blue Rooster Customs will be here with some fun new stuff.



Brooke and Cedar bring custom hula hoops and custom shirts

And for a super lucky few - Crash and Amate have generously donated items for the prize drawing. Too bad the host gets excluded from the drawing! Haha.

These things are getting raves. Don't show up too late to try one and see what the fuss is all about!

Those tacos look good!

Here's an update on the carvings I will bring to the party. These two have been spoken for and are no longer available. There's still a good selection left.

And those carvings look good Amate!

Just got back from Tiki Oasis and I brought goodies for the raffle! Mahalos to Lee Joseph/Dionysus Records, Buzzy, the Shag store, Tiki Tony and Doug Horne for their generosity. These guys rock!
