Doing this while at work could be bad for you.

Most nonprofit organizations have websites. The websites typically collect personal information about visitors, whether intentionally or unintentionally. State, federal, and international laws govern the storage, handling, and transmission of personal information that is collected through websites. How should nonprofit organizations responsibly handle this website data? The laws are complex, but our two-part answer is straightforward: (1) adopt an online privacy policy for user disclosures and controls; and (2) follow the policy!

Spying on someone’s computer is bad. As in “go to jail” bad. However, there are a few very narrow exceptions, like monitoring your kids or employees. If you fall in this category (or just want to know how someone might be monitoring you), here’s how.

Never install any monitoring or surveillance software on someone else's phone or computer. It is illegal to use this type of software (commonly referred to as "spyware") to spy on someone else via their phone or computer.[9][10] While the sale of this software is legal because the companies that offer these products include a disclaimer in the license agreement that their product is to be used only for legal purposes, you will be legally responsible if you use them in a manner that violates federal, state, or local law.

Yeah, but unfortunately good brands of heritage are a reflection of their original management; when they become professionally managed, they lose the spark that brought them to where they are today. I found that to be classic in the industry. Whenever they go into second- and third-generation management, they lose themselves. They no longer have the passion that was originally part of their DNA.Willis & Geiger

4. What does the disclosure law require a tax-exempt organization to
An exempt organization must provide a copy of covered tax documents to
an individual who makes a written or in person request at the organization’s
principal office. If the organization regularly maintains any regional
or district offices having three or more employees, it must also respond to
request submitted to any such office. Covered tax documents include, in
general, the organization’s application for tax-exempt status and its annual
returns for a period of three years beginning on the date the return is required
to be filed. If the request is made in person, it will generally be honored
on the day of the request; if it is written, then the organization generally
has 30 days to respond. (A request that is faxed, e-mailed or sent by
private courier is considered a written request.)
The organization may want to charge reasonable copying costs and the
actual cost of postage before providing the copies. The law permits this.
But the organization must provide timely notice of the approximate cost
and acceptable form of payment within seven days of receipt of the request.
Acceptable forms of payment must include cash and money order
(for an in-person request) and certified check, money order, and personal
check or credit card, for a written request.

IRC 501(c)(7) was amended by P.L. 94–568, 1976–2 C.B. 596. Prior to the amendment, IRC 501
Clubs that provide social activities and in ADDITION provide other exempt non-social activities may not qualify for exemption.

(c)(7) provided that clubs needed to be organized and operated exclusively for pleasure, recreation and other nonprofitable purposes. A club could only receive investment income or nonmember income if the income was incidental, trivial or nonrecurrent to its tax exempt purpose.

Support received by members is not taxed, but any other income such as nonmember payments and passive income is taxed under IRC 512(a)(3). See discussion on section 512(a)(3) in IRM 7.27.7. Some familiarity with IRC 512(a)(3) is helpful in understanding the tax status of social clubs because exemption operates properly only if passive sources of income are taxed to the organization as unrelated business taxable income.

A TC aloha is like a poke in the eye.
They smile to your face but cheer when you die.

Some say “Mahalo” but man that shits hollow.
Cuz once you are gone it's enemies your "friends" follow.

Talk crap about you man it’s so lame, afraid you will take one ounce of their fame.
So a Cherie Aloha and Mahalo too, but remember I’ll never turn my back to you.

It's true there are a few good TC folk, ones that don't wish you death or an eye poke.
But some are so intimidated so crippled with fear they would never defend you in the open or even here.

So TC rolls on the same boring show, the ones who killed it may never know, their need for
attention was the final death blow.

I LOVE you Ohana! I LOVE you I do! would you like one of those mugs? how bout make it two.
Ohana to the end, Frat brothers the selected few, till comes the time you can't pay the dues.

This "brother" drummed out, the next "brother" in, "here have a hat" "and here's a cool pin!"

"I need you old friend" "can you help me out"?
When all those years your "friend" to you he was out.
We are good friends again now that you are in trouble, I foresee some distance if I need help on the double.

Tiki king...
but if no one ever crossed the line, we would all still think the earth was flat. If we all stood neatly behind the line, there would be no space flight. If we all carefully stayed in our place, there would have been no exploration, no voyages of discovery. When you think about it, the whole Tiki "scene" is an an insult to some people. If we all kept our mouths shut, afraid we might offend, there would be no Tiki Bars, no Tiki mugs, no Tiki culture. So are we going to sit idly by as our entire identity is taken away because some people can’t take a joke? Are we ready to give up freedom just to be safe from the threat of feeling as though a joke was made at our expense? Are you ready to destroy all things Tiki because some find our cartoon Ku’s to be an outrage?

Words of wit, to never forget.
Not mine.

I will only employ bounty hunters who work for money. Those who work for the pleasure of the hunt tend to do dumb things like even the odds to give the other guy a sporting chance.

First rule is.. The laws of Germany

"A small group of do-gooders being targeted by some elite narcissistic Internet personalities because they think our charitable fundraising is encroaching on their market for reselling thrift store purchases spins like silk."

One thing for sure you will not get here is some self entitled prick telling you what tiki is.
We don't do that 'round here.
Whether your tiki is brown or day-glo - nobody cares.
It's mellow and easy going.
What you like is what you like.
We just want to have fun, drink, raise money and preserve tiki culture.

Welcome to the FOM.

Push through it with repetition. Smother it with words. Deny the air around me. Pretend. Pretend with vigor. Believe that the breath is gone.

Passion flower withers in frost. Spent jackolanterns. Red eyes flash with resentment at what night regrets. Not the lanterns eyes. My own.

It hurts to remember it. I'll drive home soon.. Maybe another old hawk. Never finding the one who holds my head close and says, "I know.

Nothing that will make God come looking for good times. Nothing would impress the Buddha. Nothing that will make Ezekiel's wheels spin.

What would make them shut up and suddenly pay attention? Explosions across the street? Sex offered? New drugs? Art?

..That her late husband was waiting for her there. This is not oblivion to me. Total loss of self hood. No relatives. No friends. Blackness.

Sweet lovely death, I am waiting for your breath. Come sweet death..

Though rum and beer giggle and wink and keep me on the chase. No bed until I give up on them. Alcohol is such a slut. Crickets are ashamed.

Sorry I am late to your intro. I'm always late. Not even fashionably really, more or less habitually and with my pants unzipped and my tie undone.
Said the man who wears a skirt and never wears a tie.

My tree is empty save for me. The odd duck. No claws left. No sharp beak. Eagle eyes and a mind that wants to forget the freedom of flight.

I want the "big final". The test of my beliefs. Christ riding Nessie on a tidal wave into my bedroom to bring me my love and purpose

No, I just checked. There are still only twelve months in the year.

Wait.. 12?

Since when?

I just checked my 2057 calendar, and it still has 13 months: January, February, March, Lilp, June, July, Bruun, August, Rektombre, Seven, December, December II, and Muffin.

Oh.. Shit...

What year is this?

If they dropped a month, it better not be Muffin! I've got a vacation booked in Muffin! I'm gonna be in St. John the 3th through the 32st.
I can't make this stuff up.

Not everyone pays dues.

Bushido taught blind loyalty to the emperor.


"When the former British governor general of Hong Kong, Sir Mark Young, refused to salute him, Isihara tried to behead Young with his sword. Finally Japanese military officers took the sword away.


"I have lived in the United States and I know the might of their industrial complex. The United States is a sleeping giant and I am afraid that our attack has awakened it"
Chuichi Nagumo

"Nobody outside the Order of Asshole Buddies is as impressed with your good works as you folks seem to be, and since bragging about it seems to be just as important to you as doing them, well then why not spread a little benevolence here at home. You know, with the unfortunate Americans who have to put up with your ill-mannered asses. Your merit badge society is widely regarded as the Scientologists of tiki: the perpetual drunk uncles who are culturally (and I suspect genetically) incapable of enough self-awareness to know how embarrassing you are to your families. I suppose that's why you feel like you have to beat off here once a year—because you can't get your wives to do it. If you could figure out how to bake cookies, at least you'd be as useful as Girl Scouts. Have a great day! "

Tigers, considered to be brave, cruel, forceful and terrifying, are the symbol of power and lordliness. In ancient times, people usually compared emperors or grandees with the tiger. Court officials often said that 'accompanying the emperor is just like being at the side of a tiger'. There are also many legends on hunting tigers dealing with struggling against evil might.

They are tolerant, staunch, valiant, and respected. They like challenges and speed and they are active and good at expressing themselves. They have strong sense of errantry, be frank and easy to win others' trust. In their middle age, their fate may be uneven, but afterwards will enjoy a bright prospect. Most women under the tiger sign are intelligent, faithful and virtuous.

Their shortcoming is to project themselves before others. They are given to deep thinking and capable of great sympathy, however, they can be short-tempered without interest with long-term endeavor. Sometimes, they come into conflict easily with the seniors and people in authority. Their hasty mind and decision may cause poor results. They are over confident and traitorous, which may result in unsuccessful communication and cooperation with others.

the market house story
The Old Market House Inn Restaurant, situated across the street from the site of Zanesville's original farmers' market, preserves an era of pioneer Zanesville while offering a gourmet menu in an atmosphere of the bygone days.

Farmers drove their wagons filled with produce to the first small, one-story market built in 1814. The second market, built in 1832, supplied an increasing population with meat and vegetables. In 1863 a heavy snow crushed the roof, causing a tragic collapse of the bustling marketplace.

The third farmers' market opened in 1864. In consisted of a first floor for market and a second floor for city offices. Hundreds of farm wagons would be hitched to trees and posts for several blocks in all directions three days a week. Cabs and drays clattered up Market Street from two railroad stations. Hotels with large dining rooms eventually opened their doors to accommodate the increasing commerce in Zanesville. On such hotel and the Barnett which stood on the site of the present-day Old Market House Inn.

The third market place was destroyed by fire in 1912. After a long controversy, the present building was completed in 1919 and serves Zanesville for nearly thirty years. After World War II, area residents began to patronize supermarkets and in 1946 the final farmers' market was closed and the entire building converted to city offices.

In 1974 James L. Adornetto Purchased this building, then known as the Casino Restaurant, from Tony Saup. Mr. Adornetto engaged Coburn Morgan, a renowned restaurant designer from Columbus, Ohio. Using London, England's oldest operating riverside pub, the prospect of Whitby, as a model, they orchestrated an extensive nine-month renovation of the historic building. In October of 1974 the present Old Market House Inn opened its doors.

Jim Adornetto, born and raised in Zanesville, has been a successful restaurateur in the city for over 50 years. He opened his first restaurant, Adornetto's Pizzeria, at the age of 19. In 1994, Mr. Adornetto opened Giacomo's Bread & Deli in the building north of Adornetto's Pizzeria, featuring European hearth-style breads and Italian deli with made to order sandwiches and soups.
&#10047;¸¸.•*´¯ `&#10047;

has been serving Columbus' downtown diners for over 50 years.
During that time, the skyline has changed, but we're still doing things the
way they did on their first day of business.

So, when you hear someone say "they don't make em' like they used to"
tell them they're wrong - and then take them to.

Sociopaths never answer facts; they always attack the messenger

Another very valuable red flag to recognize when trying to spot a sociopath is to see how they deal with attacks on their own integrity. If a sociopath is presented with a collection of facts, documents and evidence showing that he lied or deceived, he will refuse to address the evidence and, instead, attack the messenger!

If you really try to nail a sociopath down to answering a documented allegation, they will quickly turn on you, denounce you, and declare that you too are secretly plotting against them. Anyone who does not fall for the brainwashing of the sociopath is sooner or later kicked out of the circle and then wildly disparaged by the remaining members of the cult group.

Vintage bronze-over brass, Large Rearing Horse Sculpture. Removed from the original Kahiki many years ago. Rubbing the ear or the legs of the horse was thought to bring good luck to the guest. Part of the magical mystery that the founders of the Kahiki instilled at its inception. A beautiful patina has settled on this vintage piece. You can feel the energy as you as you wonder at the many hands, both famous delegates and stars as well as countless local residences alike. Our research shows this to be similar to other such castings that are reportedly "from the Japanese Meiji Period."
Size: 56" tall to top of Mane and 27" wide.
Condition: Beautiful natural condition!

Antique carved-wood 'Chinese Elder sculpture with Child' holding a Chinese bat. In Ancient Chinese society, a bat was a symbol of Happiness and Longevity - this hand carved sculpture is big, over 4ft tall! All wood with painted and applied gesso (like the picture frames from the 1920's) and then gilded with a gold tone finish.
Size: 52 1/2" tall. Base is 18" x 16".
Condition: Wood has dry-split from natural occurring climate changes and age. Some paint loss, but its acceptable and supporting the age of this item, adding character. The bat the child is holding is also cracked - see picture.

Good one tikigreg, you got it!
So this is what you are talking about.
I did that too, was giving all a chance to explain all of these oddities as
maybe there was/is a good explanation.

So now the seller says there is no way to tell if this is a copy?
BUT the thing has a copy date on it, and was copied by the sellers?

More Ideas for Parties and Fun

Witches are known to conduct a lot of business at night. Many witches bury workings or spells in places. Sometimes lechuzas seem to have more sinister business, such as getting vengeance on a rival.

This new Donald mug reminds me of this thread about the Obama mug.
Sorry to bring up these political names on this site as we all know that is
not allowed but am just referring to a thread that broke that rule.

That thread was locked so as to stop the offensive stuff going on there.

Is a severed Donald Jr mug next?

See it here...
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=44263&forum=12&hilite=obama mug

It’s not the mug that pisses me off as much as the hypocrisy that this one is ok and the Obama one is not.
Or is it the poster breaking the no politics rule that makes it ok?

This is not just hey here's a mug of Trump that would have been borderline bad it is the comments that also came with the post.

"lunavideogames in the morning I will print out all the photos that you all have sent to me and take a last look at the mug. I will match his fake tan and pale under eye skin when he is glazed. Dan suggested that I carve "Make America Hate Again" on the bottom."
"I can suggest a few things to go into it... none would be appropriate to list here."

Either way nobody should be ok with this type of double standard here.
This thread topic will spiral down even more before it gets better.

These are not my rules, TC made them up.
We get it, you don't like Trump, that other guy does not like Obama.

AND that would be great on Politico Central.

It's not like they are going to lock your thread.
Not enough to fight about politics on Facebook so they bring the fight here.

"lunavideogames in the morning I will print out all the photos that you all have sent to me and take a last look at the mug. I will match his fake tan and pale under eye skin when he is glazed. Dan suggested that I carve "Make America Hate Again" on the bottom."

"I can suggest a few things to go into it... none would be appropriate to list here."

"We have all done our part to remove the material that offended you. Philot will too as soon as he has read my message. I request that you also remove your posts from my thread since they will no longer be needed. I have learned that my thread is not just for myself and my friends, lesson learned."

What was wrong with that? GROG thought it was funny that we were talking about nicknames and our screen names are basically nicknames. Tiki people I see out in public often call me GROG, so it's basically a nickname.

12.What are the penalties for failure to comply with the disclosure requirements
for exempt organizations tax documents, and who must
pay them?
Responsible persons of a tax-exempt organization who fail to provide the
documents as required may be subject to a penalty of $20 per day for as
long as the failure continues. There is a maximum penalty of $10,000 for
each failure to provide a copy of an annual information return. There is no
maximum penalty for the failure to provide a copy of an exemption application.

An authentic throwback item is crab rangoon ($6) — fried crisp twists of the “skins” used to make spring rolls. The filling is cream cheese with crab and a garlic- or onion-powder flavor. It is a trip down memory lane that makes us appreciate the present.

Kahiki Redux
November 15th, 2014

“This collection of poems, from a writer who never saw the Kahiki in person, is a literary Pupu Platter brimming with playfulness, imagination, and reverence.”

Nathalie Wright, Architectural Historian; Columbus, Ohio

For over forty years, it was the largest freestanding Polynesian restaurant in the country and the site where generations of Columbusites relished Tiki culture. As a local poet and former journalist who relocated to Columbus, I became obsessed with learning about the late great Kahiki Supper Club that was razed over ten years ago after being placed on the National Historic Register. The result of my research and many interviews is Kahiki Redux, a poetry collectionin which I tried to capture the nuances of this pop-culture icon that for decades brought delight and pride to the Columbus cultural landscape. If you’d like to order a copy, please mail a cashier’s check or money order for $15.00 (includes postage) to: 897 Plum Ridge; Columbus, Ohio 43213. Please address the check to Rikki Santer. Thanks for your support.



from The Columbus Dispatch; Sunday June 17, 2012
“Poems carry a tiki torch for Kahiki” by columnist Joe Blundo

One of the most grievous crimes ever committed against Columbus architecture was the demolition of the Kahiki in 2000.
The restaurant was shaped like a giant war canoe, had a cultlike corps of devotees and featured flaming drinks, canned thunder and thatched huts. After standing at 3583 E. Broad St. for almost 40 years, it was torn down to make way for a Walgreens pharmacy.
But the memory lives. Its artifacts are auctioned on eBay, and websites recall its splendors. And now a collection of Kahiki poems has been published.
Kahiki Redux by Rikki Santer manages to evoke the appearance and ambience of the place despite the fact that the author has never been inside it.

The donation was raised at the Order's largest event, Ohana Luau at the Lake, and includes event proceeds, donations from event sponsors, money raised at a dunk tank, a silent auction, the now infamous Mystery Bowl Auction which has become a signature part of the event and sales of the limited edition Music for Moai music album. For more information about the Order, the event, and the donation please visit us at http://www.fraternalorderofmoai.org/news/index.php/2011/01/05/fom-sends-2010-donation-to-eif

there are alot of good reasons to buying a ticket to take the tour-especially if you are not familiar with the area or are from out of town.... you get the goodie bag and mug as well as a guided tour and dinner. That's alot of value for the ticket price. But like you, We have alot on our plate that weekend and for a number of reasons, we will not be taking the tour per se. That said, we do plan on going to the chef that sunday to partake of the festivities and raffle for catnap. We also will be at the hotel friday nite. Many folks will be in from out of town and I hope to spend some time with them. I encourage you to at least stop by the chef on sunday to hang with us if you can. it's good meet new people.

keep in mind, the places are small and may not accomodate people that just show up that are not with the bus tour.

Again - the tour is a great deal and I encourage anyone that can to get a ticket and enjoy the entire ride. !!



Ok folks just to clarify things...

There's a very obvious reason for not being able to accomodate folks dropping in along the way...

With the exception of Hala Kahiki, these are all small venues and only hold around a hundred or so people, so all you have to do is be able to add. Two busses @ 53 people each = 106 Tikiphiles accending on these places at one time, I think ya'll can grasp that right?

As far as Sunday's festivities at the Chef, again there will be approximately 106 people there for the duration of the afternoon. The Chef does hold more people, so there will probably be limited seating available as we get closer to the big weekend. Hope this helps put thing in perspective.

Edited to reflect that ticket price does not include the mug, that's a separate purchase!

“.&#8201;.&#8201;. At the Outrigger Bar, decked in the robes of our birthdays, anniversaries or lusty prom promises, we suck Pupu Platter goo from our Occidental nails,” she writes in Remembering the Kahiki.

In “Landscape,” she describes carloads of tourists arriving “to lose themselves inside this romantic cocoon that serves up foreign paradise in pineapple carcasses and caricature tumblers.”

Santer, who teaches film studies and English at Upper Arlington High School, moved to central Ohio from Baltimore not long before the Kahiki was demolished. It had already given way to Walgreens when she became interested in it after she and her husband bought a house featuring a Polynesian room.
The room — full of lava rock, tortoiseshell light fixtures and animal-print fabrics — was designed by Coburn Morgan, who was also responsible for the Kahiki’s hyper-Polynesian decor.
Her interest stimulated, Santer began researching the restaurant. She interviewed workers, patrons and the two businessmen who built it: Bill Sapp and Lee Henry. They sold their interests in the restaurant in 1979. (Henry called Santer’s book “terrific.”)
Acknowledging their work is one of the reasons she wrote the book, Santer said.
“My motivation is just to get a memory book into people’s hands. I was so shocked that this icon was torn down. We’re in this bicentennial year, and Bill and Lee are still alive, in their 80s, and they haven’t been recognized formally.”

The book, which is available through Amazon Books or through her website at rikkisanter.com, contains eight poems, Kahiki artwork and a forward by architectural historian Nathalie Wright. She submitted the application that got the restaurant listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, a distinction that couldn’t save it.

The last poem, “Kahiki in the Museum,” acknowledges as much, envisioning what would be in a Kahiki historical exhibit: “Lipstick-stained napkins and bite-marked straws from virgin lips; a pyramid of etched glassware; a plastic volcano erupting in gleeful streams of snapshots that incriminate with outdated fashion.”

This might not be the end of Kahiki literature. Santer said she and Wright hope to produce a full-scale history of the place.
Said Santer: “I have great affection for that restaurant.”

Sales of advertising space. A national association of law enforcement officials publishes a monthly journal that contains articles and other editorial material of professional interest to its members. The journal is distributed without charge, mainly to the organization's members.
The organization sells advertising space in the journal either for conventional advertising or to merely identify the purchaser without a commercial message. Some of the noncommercial advertising identifies the purchaser in a separate space, and some consists of listings of 60 or more purchasers per page. A business firm identified in a separate space is further identified in an Index of Advertisers.
The organization solicits advertising by personal contacts. Advertising from large firms is solicited by contacting their chief executive officer or community relations officer rather than their advertising manager. The organization also solicits advertising in form letters appealing for corporate and personal contributions.
An exempt organization's sale of advertising placed for the purchaser's commercial benefit is a commercial activity. Goodwill derived by the purchaser from being identified as a patron of the organization is usually considered a form of commercial benefit. Therefore, advertising in an exempt organization's publication is generally presumed to be placed for the purchaser's commercial benefit, even if it has no commercial message. However, this presumption is not conclusive if the purchaser's patronage would be difficult to justify commercially in view of the facts and circumstances. In that case, other factors should also be considered in determining whether a commercial benefit can be expected. Those other factors include:
The normal manner in which the publication is circulated;

The territorial scope of the circulation;

The extent to which its readers, promoters, or the like could reasonably be expected to further, either directly or indirectly, the commercial interest of the advertisers;

The eligibility of the publishing organization to receive tax-deductible contributions; and

The commercial or noncommercial methods used to solicit the advertisers.

In this situation, the purchaser of a separate advertising space without a commercial message can nevertheless expect a commercial benefit from the goodwill derived from being identified in that manner as a patron of the organization. However, the purchaser of a listing cannot expect more than an inconsequential benefit. Therefore, the sale of separate spaces, but not the listings, is an unrelated trade or business.

2. Unrelated Business Income (UBI)
Although 501(c) organizations are generally exempt from federal
income tax, they do have to pay tax when carrying on regular business
activities which are unrelated to their exempt purposes. The law
governing unrelated business income (UBI) is a complex maze of
exceptions, exclusions and modifications. The following list of
"threshold" questions can be used to narrow down the field.

a. Is the income producing activity a trade or business?
A "no" answer means the income is not taxed as UBI.

b. Is the activity regularly carried on?
A "no" answer means the income is not taxed as UBI.

c. Does the activity contribute importantly to the accomplishment
of the organization's exempt purpose?
A "yes" answer means the income is not taxed as UBI.

d. Is the activity carried on with substantially all volunteer help?
A "yes" answer means the income is not taxed as UBI.

e. If the activity involves the sale of merchandise, has substantially
all of the merchandise been donated?
A "yes" answer means the income is not taxed as UBI.

f. Is the activity carried on primarily for the convenience of the organi-
zation's members, students, patients, officers or employees? (This ex-
ception applies only to 501(c)(3) organizations.)
A "yes" answer means the income is not taxed as UBI.

If, after answering these questions, it appears the income under discus-
sion might still be UBI, con-sider the following "modifications," set
forth in section 512(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. Generally, none
of these types of income is taxable.

- interest
- dividends
- rents (from real property only)
- royalties
- annuities
- gains and losses.
Of course, there are a few exceptions within each category. A major
overriding exception is "debt-financed" income. If there is an out-
standing indebtedness with respect to the income producing property
(such as a mortgage), the income produced will be taxed in proportion
to the debt.

Finally, there are miscellaneous exclusions for certain trade shows, and
for bingo, but not for any other type of gambling activity. And 501(c)(3)s
who rent their mailing lists to other 501(c)(3)s are not taxed.

Ordinary and necessary expenses, as defined by normal income tax
rules, may be deducted in de-termining net income from an unrelated
business, and the tax rate is the same as regular corporate rates (or trust
rates for non-profits organized as trusts). Some special rules apply to
the computation of charitable contributions and net operating losses,
and there is a $1,000 "specific deduction" - the exempt organization
equivalent of a personal exemption.

The form used to pay unrelated business income tax is Form 990-T, due
at the same time as the Form 990 (the 15th day of the fifth month after
the close of the accounting period). Exempt organi-zations are required
to make estimated tax deposits if they expect to owe $500 or more of
UBI tax. Caution: Form 990-T must be filed if gross unrelated income
is $1,000 or more, whether there is any tax due or not.

One thing for sure you will not get here is some self entitled prick telling you what tiki is.
We don't do that 'round here.
Whether your tiki is brown or day-glo - nobody cares.
It's mellow and easy going.
What you like is what you like.
We just want to have fun, drink, raise money and preserve tiki culture.

Personally, I bristle at the tiki elitist/purists & the holy than thou attitude that comes with it. It's a whole "my tiki is better than your tiki" thing & that has always rubbed me (&, I think, FOMmers, in general) the wrong way. It's TIKI, for cripes sake, which is made-up in the first place. And if you come to my home tiki bar, and I happen to whip-up a pain killer for you, talking about how it's not a tiki drink is going to get that tasty painkiller taken out of your hand & your ass on the curb. Just sayin'....


Henry and Sapp went
researching, traveling west to
visit Don the Beachcomber in Los
Angeles, then to San Francisco to
check out Trader Vic’s. In 1957, Lee
and their chief designer headed to
the newly opened Mai Kai in Fort
Lauderdale, where—posing as
tourists—they took snapshots and
pocketed menus.

“One of the luckiest places as a young man in Ohio during the
‘60s was to be sitting across from a beautiful girl at the Kahiki,” writes
John Fraim, Lee Henry’s nephew, and an author of a forthcoming
book about the Kahiki. “Both participants [were] in some modern
type of alchemical reunion it seemed. But a few of the drinks at the
Kahiki in those years would do this to you.”
Ah, yes—the drinks.


What was the goings on in Feb 22 1961 first day of the Kahiki?

Jerry Garcia, an 18-year old drifter who had been discharged from the U.S. Army, survived a car accident in Palo Alto, California. He would later describe the event as "the slingshot for the rest of my life". "Before then I was always living at less than capacity," he would write later. "Then I got serious." Garcia would go on to found the Grateful Dead.[30]

Most electricity is produced by burning fossil fuels in power stations. Coal, oil and natural gas are burned in furnaces to heat up water. The boiling water makes steam which pushes the gigantic blades of a turbine to produce electricity.

Look what they've done to my Tiki bar, Ma
Look what they've done to my Tiki bar
Well, it's the only thing that they do half right
And it's turning out all wrong, Ma
Look what they've done to my Tiki bar

Wish I could find a Tiki bar to live in
Wish I could find a Tiki bar
Well, if I could find a real good Tiki bar
I'd never have to come out and look at
What they've done to my tiki bars

Look what they've done to my Mai Tai, Ma
Look what they've done to my Mai Tai
Well, they've mixed it like a Tequila Sunrise
Man that grenadine sure was a surprise,
Look what they've done to my Mai Tai


What the f%^k happened to the Tiki Central I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest Website on the net, but you're gonna let it be the worst. "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my a$$ from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this.

Cleve Ricksecker told me when I owned Jacks that he would get rid of the old places that were not on board with his "improvements" after Crossroads came in The alley now has like eight dumpsters in it, Thanks Cleve! Why is it the two places I would guess you want out are the ones that have ALL of the construction stuff in front of them? Most of the old places that built that alley in the first place have indeed been run out.
