I've been busy with work with all sorts of odd hours doing video editing and a moving deadline, so I had to ask my Magic 8-Ball. It responded with:




So far, so good...

From NBC News Los Angeles:

Toasting Old-School Tiki Bar Culture
American Cinematheque remembers Don the Beachcomber.


http://www.nbclosangeles.com/entertainment/the-scene/Toasting-Old-School-Tiki-Bar-Culture-268681572.html

Saturday, Jul 26, 2014 Updated at 3:56 PM PDT

We SoCalers get pretty dang huffy if we see a Top 10 list, one that covers the entire U.S., and a regional location or factoid or event doesn't appear on it.

Okay, granted, we don't love being on those congestion- or traffic-oriented Top 10s, but the ones about the cool things LA and its environs offers? Yeah, we tend to dominate.

Case in point: The classic tiki bar. The coconut-bedecked, pineapple-chunk laden island-sweet taverns proliferated around Southern California after World War II, and perhaps no spot was more visited, more revered, or has been more recalled, with fondness, than Don the Beachcomber.

American Cinematheque pays tribute to the former Tinseltown tiki bar with an afternoon of tiki drink samplings -- for the 21-and-over set, of course -- and tiki music and tiki shopping.

Plus? A talk about the tiki legend (Don the Beachcomber was a Mr. Ernest Gantt), his bar, and drinks from author Sven Kirsten, author of "Tiki Pop, America Imagines Its Own Polynesian Paradise." And a screening of "Enchanted Island," the oh-so-baroque Warner Bros. treat from 1958.

The tiki doings? They start at 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 27 at The Egyptian, just a short walk from where the original Don's was. Price? Fifteen bucks. (Vendors'll start vending, though, at 3 p.m., if you want to get your tiki on a little early.)

You're wearing a lei, a bright shirt, and your favorite island wear, yes? That's the lively, in-theme look of the afternoon.

And if you want a slice of Beachcomber kitsch, you can still get it, SoCal denizens: There's a Don the Beachcomber in Huntington Beach.

And during the book signing/drink portion break.

I highly doubt it's sold out.
I suggest going down there a little early,
And you should be able to get tix at the box office.

It's a crazy zoo here,
The head lady at theater is blown away by turnout.
Great job by Sven and Marie with the drinks.

I don't know what I expected because I've never made it to an event at the Egyptian until yesterday but it was tiki madness with a ton of friends and a fun afternoon/evening. Cool presentation with some great visuals from Sven, Marie mixed and talked a bit about cocktails, and we saw a great bad movie (what's the consensus anyway - did Fayaway die at the end or not?).



I was inspired to go home, mix a 1934 Zombie into my Tiki Pop mug and watch episode 415 of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Beatniks while planning for Tiki Oasis.



Thanks Sven, Marie, and the Egyptian!

I was the person in line after the one who bought the last signed copy of "Tiki Pop" at the Egyptian Theatre event. D'oh!
A very nice man (from the bookstore?) said that he would be in touch to get me a copy in the future so I gave him my email address but I haven't heard from him. Anyone else in the same boat or know who it is I need to contact? Thanks!!
