Yes Sir Ree Bong...
The gig is on Sept. 20th (8:00pm)

I am going to the Hawaiian Room on Thursday to discuss set up, drink menu, count the outlets, look for lighting, etc.

Some people have shown interest in checking out the place before the event. So I'm sending out a pre event invite.

Sweet, they've got Ms. Pacman!

I can't wait to play some music there. We're slowly building our song list. I'm gonna guarantee at least 1 new song everytime you see us play.

Damn! No Ms. Pacman!

One of my favorite bars down here in Baboa, "The Class of '47" just put in Ms. Pacman, so I'll get my fill before the Hawaiian room. Who wants a video game in a tiki bar anyway?

Tiki Farm's making a commerative mug? This is really turning into something. Can't wait to see the progress you've made on the decore.

MTKahuna, Trader Pup, some great new TC members whose name escapes me now, and myself checked out the Hawaiian Room last Thursay (I was off that week). The place is a great tiki bar blast from the past.

It has all the ingredients - located in hard-core urban area, dimly lit, interior done by Leroy and Bob, cheap drinks.

MT plans on tikifying the place out even more that Saturday before hand. Hope you all can make it.

The Smokin' Menehunes will play their little set about 9:00 or so.

Aloha

You mean on 9/13 as "that Saturday before hand", or earlier in the day on Saturday 9/20?

The more I read it, the more confused and unsure I was so I thought I'd ask.

HISTORY of the Hawaiian Room:

Last Saturday, I stopped by OA to pick up supplies. After cutting some bamboo, I asked Leroy if he remembers decorating a bar in the city of Bellflower. Suddenly, the stories began to flow.

He stated that the original name of the bar was the Dragon Hut. He remembers that an older guy, (He forgot his name), who owned a popular cleaning service opened the bar/restaurant in the late 60's.

"The theme of the place was huts", he recalls. "There was a hut in front of the place and several on the inside".

"The back room was separated by saki bottles, cork floats, and shell deviders. I remember that we would polish off & collect saki bottles for the decor. We were the first to start that."

He also remembers that the original owner paid for all of the materials, but did not pay for his labor. "That was before we had our own contractors license."

I quietly appoligized for the previous owners stingy-nous and assured him that his work was not done in vain.
Before leaving, I invited him to the event (w/ saki free of charge).

I only hope that the transformation of the Hawaiian Room will live up to it's, & his, original standards.

Hey tiki folks, how's about posting if you plan to hit this resurrection of a once proud tiki joint.

Mike needs to get a head count in order to know how many free lobster tails, hookers (men and women), booze, free vintage Trader Vics mugs, health insurance, cigarettes, 30 weight oil, beef jerky, and Crisco to get.

This does promise to be a kick in the butt time!

Wow! This sounds like the coolest thing ever! We don't have anything like this in Tennessee. The Piggy Wiggly Chilli Cook Off just don't compare (there really is such a thing, that's sad). Sure wish I could be there. You have to take lots of pictures so I can see the fun I'm missin'.

Hey Tiki Tooners,

For one night,and one night only, I would like to transform the Hawaiian Room (an old tiki relic) into a happening tiki shindig.


But in order to ressurect the sleeping tikigods there must first be a traditional kava ceremony.

The Ceremony will include:
Tiki art/carvings by:
Danny Chikitiki
Seamus
Octane
Crazy Al

Performances by:
The Smoking Menehunies
Hula Halau'O Lilinoe Dancers

Nibbles:
Poo Poo's ala Tui
Tropical Drinks (no host bar)
& shots of ceremonial kava

Join the madness... tiki style
(All cross over... step into the light... there is serenity in the light)


Hawaiian Room
9875 East Alondra
Bellflower, CA 90706
Sat. Sept 20, 2003
*Ceremony starts at 9:00pm
