Thank you to everybody that came to join us at the Tonga Hut for Tiki Wonderland. Thanks Amy and Jeremy of the Tonga Hut for putting on the event and providing the prizes for the cookie contest and art show. Thanks Eric October for heading up the art show and congratulations on winning. Thanks Marie and Ian for the tasty drinks, and Sherryaki and Tonga Tom for all your help. Thanks to all the vendors for providing such fun stuff to choose from, all the artists that brought stuff for the art show, and all the entrants in the cookie contest. Thanks BigTikiDude for Djing the fun Christmas tunes, and big thanks to the Glasgow Tiki Shakers for your great performance as usual.Thanks to anybody else that GROG may have forgotten that helped make this another fun and successful event.

Had plenty of people helping judge the cookie contest by tasting and casting votes. Congratulations Kevin (Heylownine) whose chocolate covered macaroons won top prize which was a limited edition Tonga Hut mug. We had five entrants. All the cookies were gone by the end of the night.


More cookie tasting.


Kaylin Campbell and Dan Statler's boothe had some awesome metal tiki art.


Some fun vending going on over at Geedavee's booth.


Kirby's son Tyler starting the Christmas mustache contest early with his Yogurt mustache.


Mom, Polly looks on as he flirts with Cindy.


Bigbro, Sven made back to the U. S. in time to make it to the show.


Sheri was handling the Tonga Hut mug sales. Plenty more mugs at the Tonga Hut, so drop in and have a drink and get an awesome Big Mo mug designed and sculpted by Kirby and produced by Taboo Island.


Jeff BigTikiDude Djing some Christmas tunes.


More cookie judging.


Johnnie Velour and his ever lovely wife..


You could see a number of people took advantage of the Taco Lady's wonderful Mexican food.


8 Ball provided some wonderful stuff to choose from.


Inside, the Glasgow Tiki Shakers were awesome as ever.


GROG took the opportunity to jump in and get a picture with Bill while he was playing. Since his hands were busy playing the guitar he couldn't strike GROG or push GROG away.


The Shakers from another angle.


Marie working her butt off at a busy bar.


Eric Link and Tonga Tom could hardly contain their excitement.


Ray Boylan and BTD. Two of the Biggest guys in Tiki. Literally.


Mr. Moai is feeling a bit blue going into the holidays, so he's trying to drink his blues away.


GROG going to steal Joyce away from Bill, don't anybody let him know.


New bartender, Ian showed up to help out Marie making drinks before taking over the night shift.


Tonga Tom: "I'm not as think as you drunk I am."


Sandra Dee and GROG. There are some advantages to be a short caveman standing next to a 6 foot Amazon.


GROG and Sherryaki.


Krisdrama join GROG for a photo.


Val was wondering what she should get Kevin(Heylownine) for Christmas, and Eric October (Tobunga) describing what a c*#K ring is.


The Glasgow Tiki Shakers entertained everybody from 5 pm to 8pm.


BigTikiDude yelling "Turn that sh*t down!!" Apparently he's not a fan of the Glasgow Tiki Shakers.


Getting a picture of Eric Link to prove that he really does exist. He hasn't been around for awhile, so he's sort of like bigfoot. People have claimed to have seen him, but the only proof has been some blurry photos.


So much loveliness in one photo. It was nice to have Kari (Tangaroa Ru) in there, too.


Ian showing off his decades of bartending skills.


Linda and Christian were visiting from Alberta and stopped in to try some drinks at the Tonga Hut and became instant fans.
