Hey kids-

Look what the cat drug in...



Limited edition FONG FEST serigraph screen prints from the
inimitable Steve Walters at Screwball Press, one of the finest
gig-poster producers in the country.

Hand-numbered, signed edition of just 100; these are gonna
go quick at $10 bucks each and will only be available at the event!

Now just THINK of how nice these'll look framed and hanging in yer
pad... they're sure to swell-en things up a bit...

If you have been on the fence about purchasing tickets to "Fong Fest" here's an excellent reason to get off it and buy 'em now!!!


In keeping with the Celebration of Aloha Spirit, The Red Palms chapter of the FOM will be conducting a charity raffle to benefit Catnap from the Heart a local animal shelter here in suburban La Grange, IL.
http://www.catnapfromtheheart.org/

The raffle will be part of Saturday's outdoor festivities, and all items will be on display in the restaurant that day. Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00 and will be available for purchase throughout the day. Winning numbers for all raffle items will be drawn approximately 8pm Saturday evening.

We have some pretty cool stuff that has been donated that we'll be posting right on up to the event so stay tuned.

Now, for your viewing pleasure we bring you item number one...

...this groovy Witco World piece combines their signature style along with the combination of metal used to form the continents. The piece measures a whopping 3' in length (with hanger) and globe is approximately 2' in diameter.

Call 708-442-7080 and order your tickets today!

See ya'll at the Chef!

Greetings !!!


Thursday nite before the fong fest, we were planning a get together meet and greet at Hala kahiki for local tiki folk and those coming from out of town.... I need to get a rough head count of the number of people interested in showing up thursday night about 8 p.m. ish for drinks. We will have our own space in the back room with our own bar, and drinks will be made and served by the owner himself, which mans they will be really good and not short on the pour. Just let me know by either posting here or sending me a p.m. - you have till monday night to let me know. I'm only asking for a rough head count so that the owner doesn't get blind sided by a bunch of people showing up and not enough wait staff or bar staff to accommodate.

Thanks so much in advance and hope to see you there and at fong fest next weekend !!

Very stoked to return to the Chicago area and a Midwest tiki icon... Chef Shangri-La!

The Chef and my friends The Vastas have put together an awesome lineup of bands for the event!

Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones Saturday!
