The day after the OC crawl Shelley, FloraTina and I were lucky enough to tour Bong's palatial mansion. These photos I took are of his bar set up, wich is really cool. His living room however was a polynesian dream. Most things were in display cases and my digital cam has trouble through glass, so I didn't take any clear pics inside. I really liked his Koa wood furniture, very swank. Here's some photos of the bar.

Wow, coool bar, Bong! Hey is that Bill Clinton I see up there on the shelf or is it Nixon? My only regret from the OC Pub Crawl is that we did not make it to Bong's bar, but perhaps another time. As always, great pics from AlnShelly. The koa furniture sounds terrific. You are truly blessed by the island gods!

Aloha,

Uncle Arty

Great bar! But I thought all tiki bars were supposed to be photographed with a bottle of Lancers Rose on them?

That's a Witco insider joke.
Hey Bong, you get it on, bang a gong, man!

Al, you and that camera are unbelievable. You need to have a PBS series Al's TIKI tour.
Someday I hope to have you and your super duper wonderful wife grace my humble TIKI digs, and have the camera do the talkin.

Bong, way cool bar. Hope to see it in person someday. I did not see the book of TIKI laying around? Was it at the cleaners?
Bong you have a perm. invite to my bar also.
I might need some spirits help being that I don't drink and all. I can't taste them to see if they are right or not. Keep the TIKI freaki.

Thank you all for the kind responses. I too am sorry we couldn't make it to my tiki bar after getting back to Ben's shop after the crawl (It's due to my advanced age).

All tikicentralites are invited to our home if they would like to compare notes on tiki bars and related hawaiiana collections and furniture. Al, of Al and Shelly, was able to provide some information on one of Madam Bong's tiki bowls that we were unaware of.

And YES, of course we have the BoT! I would like Sven to sign it some day. I felt a bit dumb bringing it to the OC Tiki Crawl for that purpose.

And Gecko! what up brah? When you coming back mainland side? If we don't see you sooner, we'll visit next time me, Debbie and the baby bongs are in the islands.

Aloha to 'A Tribe Called Tiki'.

Killer Tiki Bar Bong!!
That hanging bamboo light looks vintage. It looks like to me that it's circa 1920's. Score on that one.
Alohas & mahalos

Thanks Talkie-Tiki,

If you're ever out West you have an invite to stop by.

P.S. I have relatives in South Carolina and if I visit 'em maybe we'll hook up.
