OK - It's my 42nd birfday and I'm breaking that long-standing internet rule..."Don't drink and post..."

I went through the old posts here tonight while mixing my Mai Tais with the Cruzan Single Barrel that the Amber Love Goddess brought/bought for me.

Please indulge this newbie for a few sentences whilst I re-visit some subjects from the past. (I only read everything UP TO Oct. 14th 2002.) The rest tomorrow or relatively soon... I hate missin' stuff.

I have a few additions, queries, answers and observations re: posts up to Oct. 14th 2002:


1. The Thor Heyerdahl film that was being remade... any recent word on that?

2. Hampton Inn - had a run in with them as well over their reservation policies. Got my money back after a persistence flu that swept me off of my complancency - generally avoid H.I. when at all possible. Congrats for those who conquered this Memphis-based icon of suck.

3. Raw FIsh Salad as posted by the New Caledonian... yes - I will make it for the TC party TBD at the Lagoon Lounge.

4. Never got to see the BongBar.

(EDIT: found this one later:

http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=546&forum=1&13

Thanks and Fantastic. I recognize the Gecko Tiki from his carving post.)

The links to the pics were outdated, as with many of the bars that I wished to view. Any links to those that are working? Also Castaway Cove and several others.

5. Tiki Museum. A great idea that some benevolent cash-tiki will certainly fund through this site in the not too distant future. It's just too hip to ignore.

6. Swanky was looking for bamboo at one juncture. I have some info regarding that. UTKnoxville is sponsoring a grower here in the Tampa area to grow massive amounts of bamboo for... clothing. They say it will replace cotton. I say - what's the thread count? Really though, it is a viable project that has major funding through UT and JJ (My Mai Kai buddy) is involved daily. So bamboo is an easy find here... that's all I'm sayin'.

7. The Rock as King K. - Samoans vs. Hawai'ians - what gives on this front?

And Finally...
I've learned that my use of "Lagoon Lounge" is a copyright infringement on Alnshelly's well documented bar.

I'd like to seek permission from the owners to use said name in Florida only and not to be commercialized for profit without the written consent of the owners.

I plead the fifth...

...of rum.

Happy birthday deeeer pablus...
haaaaapy biiiiirthdayyyy to meeeeeeee.

Now a question...
The Bali Hai(?) in Canton, Ohio, (my home sweat home... yes... sweat), my uncle was the bartender there for many years. Does anyone know of a source for bric-a-brac from that locale? Anyone ever even hear of it?

Wow.

5-6 hours of Tiki Central Main Discussion Area "Surfing" and finally made it to the day I first started lurking.

(I started at midnite TPA time and it's now 6:06 - don't know why the "post time" is skewed unless the edits did it.)

You folks are busy.
Appreciate the links and photos and info everyone.
Thanks to all. Been a great year for Tiki.

Good ni..... uhh....morning.

Pablus,

I think that shows a great deal of respect (?) for the group for a neubie to read all the posts on the new Tiki Central forum.

But if you want to be hardcore, we used to be on Yahoo Clubs, then Groups.

If you're ever in So Cali, stop by Bong's Tiki Hut for a drink. (The pictures on that post are primative compared to now.)

I'll be there in an hour.

Actually, I have a buddy in Playa Del Ray that I visit from time to time. What a wierd little complex that is.

I'm hoping to be helping him move here to Tampa in a few months. While there, I'd certainly like to stop by and view your digs, jam a bit and sample a drink or eight.

Thanks for the invite.

Playa Del Rey in da house!

Where's your buddy at? If it a "wierd little complex" he must live in one of those building with the little creeks running through it. I can never find my way in those mazes.

Pablus,
Good for you, reading the archive, there is some good stuff in there. Go ahead and use Lagoon Lounge, it's a good name for a bar. When you go to Bongs let us know, we'll meet you up there.
Mahalo,
Al

What a great year it's been for TIKI!

I actually got to meet many of the folks from Tiki Central and have made truly solid friendships with several of you.
Except for Flounder.

My bar is doing well, I've added stuff from a lot of folks here, notably Basement Kahuna and Monkeyman, and I'm about to add a TikiTony tiki to the entrance.

My mug collection is ramping up with the coolness factor in that I have now met many of the artisans who made the best mugs of the collection.

I got to go to Hukilau and hang wit da ohana - and I think I was made an honorary Californian but my teeth haven't gotten any whiter. What gives?

I went through 2 hurricanes and pneumonia.

I learned a great deal about drink mixing and Tiki history and Hawaiiana and good story and uke playing and vintage stuff and bamboo and other tropical plants.

Thank you, Tiki Centralites, for making this year a lot more fun and fulfilling with your recipes, ideas, songs, events, humor, artwork, story, photos and general good nature.

Today, I'm getting myself a little present - I'm booking my flight to LAX for the first part of November. I'll be there 5 nights.

Tiki Bong, your time is at hand. I have to do a Tiki Ti night. I must see the Lagoon Room if at all possible. I gotta see Bamboo Ben's shop. I need to have King Kukulele drive me through Compton at 3 am. I'd love to see the southernCA ohana in their natural environment without a major storm bearing down on them.

What a great start to my oldest year ever!

And this year, I resolve to send Hanford some money - Mahalo to you BIG TIME, braddah.

Pablus, make sure you post up the dates you'll be here -- I definitely want to get together for a Mai Tai.

Happy Birthday Pablus!
You are absolutely right about going through TC archives. An enormous wealth of info and fun (thanks again Hanford).
But the best thing about TC, are the people you meet here.
Mai tais for everyone!!

Happy Birthday, Pablus! Oh, I'm so excited to hear you're going to be in town soon! Something special will certainly be arranged.
