What is the timeframe for vending? Also the bands are at 6 each day? I might be able to make it, but not until I am off work on Sunday and drive to LA. So I can be there by 8. Will there still be some fun times to be had? I am guessing YES!

Also, I hope that you are FIRM on the one mug per family. I REALLY would like to get one, but I realize that I might be late to the party.

Thanks for the info and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Wow Billy! Looks cool!

I like how the Drooling Bastard looks like a 1920's cartoon character!

Here's a couple things I'll have at the show: Ceramic Drooling Bastard pendants and earrings!

I'm hoping people post pictures here of the festivities, so I can get some mahalo out here in Texas.

Happy Anniversary to Marie, Lisa Marie, Sid and everyone else at the Hut!!

Nice to see everyone today. Wish we could have stuck around longer. I just noticed that someone already posted the Shag mug on Ebay. Congratulations on 55 years. All of the art show pieces were very cool and we thought that Tobunga's piece had the best vintage vibe. Nice tequila sample from Deadhead too.

Didn't have time to go get any ice cream while at the Tonga Hut today, but grabbed some on the way home---it was SOOOooooo good!

Nothing like having a limited edition SHAG mug to get a crap-load of people to an event! That's easily got to be the new best 1 day sales record for business at the Tonga Hut. Congrats EVERYBODY for putting on a stellar event, and for all the patrons old and new for coming and celebrating with us at the Tonga Hut. Congrats Doug Horne for getting first place in the art show. Congrats, Amy, Jeremy and Murph on Tonga Hut2 announcement. Good job Eric October organizing the vending and art show.

Thanks to all GROG' friends who came by and chatted, and expressed their concerns about GROG' upcoming heart surgery . Great to see everybody.

Lunavideogames, sorry GROG not around if/when you and your friends came back to Tonga Hut from hotel. GROG wiped out from long day, short amount of sleep, and home was calling to GROG. Nice meeting new friends and fellow TCers GROG hadn't met before. Not going to name everybody because GROG too tired right now to recall all names and not want to miss anybody.

GROG drag GROG' tired butt to bed now.
