This place does sound cool. From what Mike (MTKahuna) has told me, it's a classic old-school tiki bar that has been getting squeezed out.

We can transform it once again to it's glory days.

I've got tentative OK's from the rest of the Smokin' M's to play.

Mark your calendars now!

In fact anyone who wants to go and check out the before stage is more than welcome to join us.

I never heard of this place - it is an actual current functioning tiki bar or its a closed up bar that is gonna be re-opened for us?

Sistas HP & Floritina,

It's an actually functioning tiki bar... With less tiki and more advertisements.

The bar was originally built in the 60's. The current owners (Candy & Monroe) bought the establishment in the early 80's and kept all of the original decor (Tapa walls, bamboo lamps, floats, lava rock ceilings, canoes on the ceiling, etc.)

However, there is not much tiki left in the place and the joint has become very run down. They have hung up beer ads, video games, tv's, jukebox) to accomidate the local patrons.

I thought that it would be fun to do a tiki make over... and ressurect the tiki spirits once again. (If even for one night).

I would classify the bar as a definate TIKI DIVE BAR.

It's in the city of Bellflower (very close to the 91 & 605 freeways)

Come check it out...

I am going to bring in a whole bunch of tikies & Polynesian artifacts, cover the TV's, relight the lamps, take down the beer ads, spark up the grill, light the torches, bring in the hula girls, serve up some pupu's, show the bartenders how to make Tropical drinks, and hold a traditional kava ceremony.

There will also be door prizes ...

And this will all be free to attendees (except for drinks... but they are the kinda bar that serves well drinks for $2.00 & beers for $1.00)

Yeah brudda MT, Bong's here!

The Smokin' Menhunes (hopefully with Crazy Al beating out the time on coconuts) will be playing.

If anyone wants to check the place out next Thursday night (9/4), then stop by or come over to Bong's for a frosty tropical drink first.

Ahhhh, tiki time!
