Aloha Texas Tikiphiles,

It's high season for tiki-ing! And as such it's high time we had another Texas Tiki Round-up. Please save the date Saturday, Sept. 3rd for our 7th Round-up at the Enchanted Lagoon in Austin.

I'm so excited to have Florida surf gods The Intoxicators! and The Disasteranuts back at the lagoon. We'll also enjoy the enchanting hapa haole Hawaiian band Combo Mahalo and DJ Atomic Mambo sounds of the islands.

For those new to the party, the Round-up is our almost annual gathering of tikiphiles and like-minded Texans at our house in Austin, which we call the Enchanted Lagoon. It is one night only of music, cocktails, swimming, mini-golf, vintage alohawear, tiki and vintage vendors and relaxation in our tiki room, Second Floor-a Bora Bora.

It usually starts around 7pm and goes very late. It is generally an adult party. Kids are not expressly forbidden, but we'll have a large crowd in a large yard that is fairly dark with lots of un-fenced water features.

As in past years we will be asking for a small monetary donation to help cover costs of the food, bands, etc. and food offerings will be gratefully accepted as well.

If you are interested in vending, please contact me.

More info will follow soon, including list of nearby hotels in SW Austin.

Keep up to date with Texas Tiki news on the Texas Tikiphiles Facebook page too.

Yee-haw and cheers!

Your local tiki hostess,
Julie aka Koitiki

Aloha Tx Tikiphiles!

We are busy beautfiying and tikifying the Enchanted Lagoon for your enjoyment at the Tiki Roundup.

RSVP's are rolling in. To RSVP go to Paypal.com and send money via friends and family to
Koitiki@austin.rr.com. Suggested donation is $25 per person. That includes everything, even a free ticket for door prizes. We've got some cool stuff- carvings by Amate, a painting and print by William Flint, something from each vendor and more!

New vendors announced:
Jay Brooks of Aloha Texas Tiki Co. (Houston)
Hempton's Retro Threads (Austin)
Kenike's Tiki (personal collection)
Trader Trixie (Etsy/online)

Mahalo for the RSVP's I've received so far. I'll be sending confirmation emails out periodically, and will email the address the week of the party. Don't wait too long to let me know you're coming. Once we reach capacity, RSVP's will be closed.

**IMPORTANT INFO** Please note this is a private party at my house. Only those who RSVP and receive a confirmation email will be admitted. If you would like to invite friends, please let me know their names and have them RSVP too. Thanks for your understanding in making this a comfortable sized crowd with fun, well-mannered guests that treat each other and our place with respect.

Cheers,
Koitiki

Aloha Tx tikiphiles,

We are less than a month away from the Roundup! Woohoo! If you haven't yet, please send your RSVP's as soon as possible. I will need a headcount to order food and beverage. I'm accepting them until Aug. 20th -OR- when we reach capacity. So don't miss out!

http://txtiki.wixsite.com/txtikiroundup2016


To RSVP- go to Paypal.com and choose Send money via friends and family to Koitiki@austin.rr.com. Suggested donation is $25.

A little more info:

RSVP is required.

When is the party?
September 3rd 7pm-very late

Where is it?
Our house, The Enchanted Lagoon, Southwest Austin, Tx. The event address will be emailed to those who RSVP the week of the party (or email me).

Who is invited?
Tiki Centralites, Texas Tikiphiles on email and Facebook, and friends of those. This is not a public party, but those who RSVP are welcome to invite a few friends who you trust and know will be respectful that this is our home. Just let me know and have them RSVP.

Are kids invited?
This is essentially an adult party. We have a large yard that is dark with multiple water features that are not fenced. There is no lifeguard and our house is not childproofed. That being said, if you cannot find a sitter for the keikis, we will not turn you away!

Is it free?
We're asking for a suggested donation of $25 per person to help cover some of the costs. We organize this party ourselves for the love of Polynesian Pop and don't make a profit. Your rsvp donation includes all food, beverage and entertainment, even a free entry for door prizes. This year a portion of each rsvp donation as well as beverage tips will benefit charity.

So what's happening?
Fabulous bands and dj on the lanai. And food and tiki beverage, tiki mini-golf, swimming, lounging in the upstairs tiki room, dancing and hula hooping.

What to wear?
Wear your vintage aloha shirts and tiki dresses, or anything tropical. Bring your swimsuit if you'd like to dip in the lagoon. Ladies, comfortable shoes are suggested for the uneven terrain, and spikes aren't allowed on the golf greens.

What to bring?
As always, we encourage everyone to bring a food or drink item to share. That would be awesome, and is greatly appreciated, but not required. Bring your swimsuit and towel (Seriously. Put it in the car. Everyone changes their mind after awhile and wants to jump in). A hula hoop if you like. And don't forget a little something to throw in the charity tip jar and if you'd like to purchase something from the wonderful vendors!

Do you need any help?
Why, yes. Glad you asked. We could definitely use more volunteers. We could use some help the day before setting up, and the night of the party it will all be easy tasks that are less than an hour. Maybe as easy as making sure we still have ice and the torches stay lit. Please email me if you're willing to lend a hand. Mahalo to those who've already volunteered! I will email you soon!



Keep up with us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/texastikiphiles/

Email me at txtiki@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Mahalo!
Julie
