Aloha!

The party starts at 7pm!

Party prep is going swimmingly! Last night I organized the raffle prizes. I've streamlined it this year. We will still draw names, but only for the handmade art pieces generously donated by Crash and Amate. The other prizes will be available at the raffle table between 10 and 11 pm. Volunteers will be there to help you draw a ticket, some of which will correspond to a prize or goodie bag.

The hoarding of pineapple juice and rum has begun! We are selecting cocktails to prepare like we have in the past. Water and sodas and a little beer will also be available. If you want a lot of beer, bring some. Cans only.

Don't arrive too late to hear Austin faves Kathy Murray featuring Monster Bill Jones regale us with a few songs on their ukes! They are about to release their first solo record. Go Kathy and Bill!

Another music note: If you are a surf music fan, you might want to check out a new Facebook group started by Cedar and Brooke called Austin Surfs.

Because fire danger is high in the area and some of our grass is dead and dry, I'm asking folks to please please not smoke on the grass. I'm also advising the ladies to wear shoes that will be easy to navigate the yard's unlevel terrain in. No spike heels will be allowed on the golf greens.

I'm still looking for a few more volunteers for easy tasks. Please let me know! Also don't forget to RSVP!

Mahalo!

Aloha Texas tikiphiles!

The time to tiki is almost upon us. We should have a great group. I've gotten over 100 RSVP's so far. As always, this is not a public party, but guests are welcome to invite 1 or 2 friends who you trust and know will be respectful that this is our home. I wish we had the facilities for a humongous crowd, but that might require renting another locale and that just wouldn't be near as much fun! Please make sure that you or your friends RSVP to
txtiki@gmail.com no later than tomorrow AM(Tues. the 18th) so I can have enough food and drink on hand.

Speaking of food, in addition to our planned menu Greg Gee of the website Doc's Atomic Diner will be joining us and has offered to cook up some Char Sui Pork and Spam Rumaki. Did you know Spam is huge in Hawaii? I dig his "Calamaori" symbol here: http://www.docs-atomic-diner.com. I'm also looking forward to HulaCat's famous summer rolls and Martini Tiki's Polynesian Spareribs. Yum. I very much appreciate all contributions of food or a pitcher of cocktails.

We are creating several different cocktails in large quantities. These drinks are strong and meant to be poured as small sipping cocktails. Make sure to pace yourself and mix in some food and water between drinks so you are up and enjoying the whole party.




Party is this Saturday, Sept. 22nd, starts at 7pm and usu. goes til early morn, but we try to be as respectful of my neighbors as possible. I will post the address Friday.

Suggested donation at the door: $15 or Paypal before the 22nd by selecting Send Money and entering this email: Koitiki@austin.rr.com.

Please email me at txtiki@gmail.com if you have any questions. Mahalo!
Julie

Can't wait! I thought I was getting a ride with Brook and Cedar, but their car is full of stuff they're selling. Is anyone up near The Northcross Mall area that I can ride with?

Since it's a tiki gathering, it seems like a good opportunity to trade mugs instead of putting them up on ebay not knowing what you'll get for them. Here's what I'm bringing with me:

I have a few Sven Book of Tiki Anniversary mugs. Tiki Farm is nearly sold out of them.
Mana Mana in Blue. It was introduced during Tiki Farm's anniversary, but this is not the limited version. The Anniversary limited version is green.
A local boy mug. Tiki Farm's limited Anniversary edition. It's white with blue accents.
I also might have a boxload by then of Orchids Mugs, ku bottle openers, and stuff that I'd be happy to part with in large quantities for a good trade.
I also have a Cosmic Blaze and a Britiki Blue from Cheeky Tiki London

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head that I'm hunting for is the green Trader Vic's 2002 anniversary mug. Otherwise, I'm open, but leaning towards more tiki farm stuff I don't have. Anybody else trading tiki? Of course, won't work without a ride. I'm working on that.

The Enchanted Lagoon awaits. Tomorrow night looks to be splendid weather and my house smells like bacon. Life is good.

The party starts at 7pm at my house. Wear your tiki and tropical finery (and comfortable shoes!). Bring your bathing suit, any food or drink to share, tiki mugs to swap if you wish, and cash if you might want to purchase something from the vendors. Suggested donation at the door $15. We will have a list of those who've used Paypal. There will be some vintage cars in the driveway, so don't park there unless you plan on staying til Sunday morning. Speaking of getting home, please drink responsibly, and plan ahead for the trip home. I'll post a cab # too.

I am so looking forward to seeing everyone, tasting some wonderful cocktails and seeing some awesome musicians perform. Listen carefully and you might hear the exotic call of a lovely tropical bird. Here's a hint:


Aloha til tomorrow-
Koitiki

Can't wait .......!!!!!! IT'S TONIGHT!!!!!

I'm making up a BIG batch of the Royal Hawaiian cocktail, which has proven to be a popular cocktail at the previous luaus. Get there early to make sure you get some. This is a gin based cocktail, and it's a fine option to the many rum drinks which will be imbibed.

I'll be joined by my lovely and happenin' wife, Hulacat, and the beautiful and always fun, Castlehune.

See y'all TONIGHT!

Dobrolic
