I knew Ben wasn't kidding. I was told by a friend that her brother, who was also working on the build, only recently was paid. Seems Michelle was in no hurry to pay for his work. I thought some odd funding was being done, sponsoring bar stools,drink names or something like that. And what ever happened to the $20 to $2,500 pledges to bring a Fish Tank Kings aquarium to the bar? Hopefully the folks who are actually managing Tiki Iniki can resolve the problems they have been saddled with and restore some good will to this project.

aloha, tikicoma

How disappointing. You obviously a lot of work into that job (it looks wonderful!), and now it will always be tainted with the memory of this.

I noticed that they promised payment in full by yesterday. Did that happen?

Oh, this just blows. We'll also be there in February and have really been looking forward to seeing Ben's work and enjoying the bar. Really hope they get their act together and get this taken care of, for Ben's sake, imediately. Talk about bad mana...

Maybe people shouldn't be doing things that could affect Ben without his approval first. It would be unfortunate if some well-mean img tikiphiles caused a ruckus and made things even more difficult for Ben. I know everyone wants to see Ben get paid, but getting uninterested parties involved is a quick way to make things more difficult and get people angry.

How can it get any worse? They haven't paid him yet and it looks like a lawsuit is going to be the only alternative for Ben. A crying shame that things have to go this far.

I urge all of TC to join together & show our disapprovement for this kind of treatment
to a valued member and friend of our community (not to mention other workers whom have also not been paid for there services)
I would like to think we do have a higher sense of standards here on Tiki Central
I stand by Ben & hope all of you will too.

I'm happy to do whatever Ben would like. Ben, is there anything we can do to help?

Valerie and I will be in Hawaii next month and had planned on going here. We have decided to take Kauai off of our itinerary. The weather is better in Maui anyway. I hope this all works out to everyone's satisfaction. I would like to pay a visit to Tiki Iniki when I do get to Kauai, and to be able to recommend it to friends who will be going there in January.

Paul, I think you should go to Kauai and Tiki Iniki. Go ahead and run up a huge bar and food tab. When they present you the bill just tell them to deduct it off Bamboo Ben's last invoice and then pay Ben the cash directly.

Don’t cancel Kauai cuz of tiki inicki. There is such beauty on the north shore. Tahiti Nui in Hanalei is one of the coolest places to enjoy a tropical beverage in a stunning locale that I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.
