I can't make this on the 29th, but I'll try to get down before it's over.

The gallery has arranged for Senor Amor to spin exotica that evening and are having the after party at the Callente Tropics hotel.

There will also be a limited edition serigraph from Von Franco entitled "Frankentiki" ($75.00), Serigraphs & Posters fromt the Pizz ($20.00 to $300.00) and a very limited quantity of the new Shag serigraph entitled "The Green Wahine" ($125.00).

This, like La Luz, will be a no host bar benefiting the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation with Beverage prices as follows:

$1.00 for Sodas
$2.00 for beers
$3.00 for wine

We hope you can make it to Palm Springs for this event in our newest gallery at 448 N. Palm Canyon Drive. Cherry Capri's show "Come for Sun Swim Fun" will be up for viewing at the other M Modern Gallery at 400 N. Palm Canyon (just down the street) that evening as well.

This should be a great time!

Correction:
The Von Franco 150 piece limited edition serigraph is entitled "Frank en Tiki" and is a steal, in our opinion at $ 75.00 each.

Additional Merchandise - Just for the Palm Springs Show at M Modern Gallery:

"WALL of the PIZZ"

This is going to be 180 (yes, we did say 180) signed ORIGINAL DRAWINGS from the Pizz's personal collection available that evening with INCREDIBLE PRICING ranging from $100.00 through $300.00. There may never be a better opportunity to pick up an original Pizz Tiki drawing or other cool drawings by the Pizz. We're anticipating these will go fast and these are only available at M Modern Gallery in Palm Springs. Mark your calander for Saturday November 29th at M Modern Gallery. There will be a great party afterward at the CALLENTE TROPICS with the artists present.

We hope you can make it!

The gallery will also be offering both copies of Tikiquest and Tiki Road Trip that were already hand signed by the authors. These will be available in limited quantities that evening in Palm Springs.
This event should rock!

The event last night at Le Luz De Jesus was packed! It can be very difficult to anticipate the crowd for an event like this and to create a smooth flow. We went to their event to learn how to work our upcoming "It's All About the Tiki" show on Saturday. Since we had the advantage of learning from their show; hopefully, we can accommodate people in a fast and efficient way when the madness strikes. A few things to keep in mind about our event at M Modern Gallery:

-There is going to be a lot of parking in the lot right before you hit the gallery. If you miss the parking lot simply round the block and try again.
-We will have just one line with two cashiers that will write-up the order, take payment (all major credit cards and cash) and then hand you your merchandise.
-Once you purchase your merchandise you can take it over to the Pizz, Shag and Von Franco to get it signed.
-TikiFarm has said that all of the items at our show will be available that night! (this means no waiting for a delivery later).
-Serigraphs at the show (including the Green Wahine) will be placed in "Stay Flat" mailiers. Stay Flats mailers are pretty sturdy (suitable for storage) but we don't recommend shipping these.
-Get there early as our allotment of merchandise is about 1/2 of what La Luz De Jesus had available at their show.
-There are plenty of other cool shops, restaurants and salons within walking distance of the gallery as we are located on the main drag of DOWNTOWN Palm Canyon Drive.

-If you are coming in from out of town from the west (LA, Riverside, etc.) take the Hwy. 111 exit off of Hwy. 10 and follow it to Downtown (Hwy. 111 becomes North Palm Canyon Drive) and we are located at 448 N. Palm Canyon Drive (beginning of the Downtown area).

-Call the gallery if you need directions coming in from the East (ie. Arizona, NM, etc.) at 416-3611 prior to the night of the event as phones will be difficult to answer that evening.

-PLEASE DRIVE SAFE!

Wow, that's probably more than you wanted to read. Anyway, we hope to see all of you there!

I just got word that Miss Cherry Capri will have 2 new paintings up at the original M Modern Gallery space during this same weekend. Apparently, several of the paintings from the sho have been picked up by the people who bought them, sooooo..... what a good excuse to paint 2 new TIKI works.

One is from Aloha Jhoe's in Palm Springs, the other is entitled appropriately "It's All About The Tikis!" It's a piece based on the mythical theme park in Monterey Park. Don't miss your chance to see these 2 new pieces

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Just arrived back from an excursion to the farm. (the Tiki farm not the Turkey farm). Before leaving today we received signed copies of "Tiki Road Trip". Thanks to James for signing these and to his agent Jeffrey for getting these to us prior to the upcoming event this Saturday. We were also fortunate enough to have Duke sign some copies of his book "TikiQuest" for our show too! Try to remeber these great signed books amongst all the cool TikiFarm Limited Edition wares.

Hi Everyone,

I guess we spoke to soon when we said that we would have all of our allocated "It's All About the Tiki" merchandise available for our show tonight. These are intricate pieces and, although Tikifarm has worked at a tiring pace, the Tiki and Manufacturing Gods haven't always been smiling on us this week.

Here are some helpful tips to assist you in understanding how things will go at the gallery tomorrow evening (we promise only one line for everything):

35 of Shag's "Green Wahine" print available (this was a very generous allocation from Shagmart & Shag given this print is now Sold Out)!

10 of Shag's Charm Bracelets available tomorrow night (good luck!) and we have none on back order from Tikifarm - This was a limited run of only 100.

30 pieces of Shag Tiki Mug 3-Pack at the show - none on back order.

10 of the Shag Warrior Mugs available, however, we will take an additional 25 orders for these that will be shipped directly to the address of your chosing by TikiFarm.

35 of the "Martin" Tiki Mug by The Pizz avaiable that evening - none on back order with Tikifarm.

40 pieces of the "Lewis" Tiki Mug by the Pizz avaiable that evening - none on back order with Tikifarm.

35 of the 5-pc. Stacker Set by the Pizz available -none on back order with Tikifarm.

30 of the Hi-Ball set by the Pizz available -none on back order with Tikifarm.

12 of the Outrigger Sets by the Pizz available -none on back order with Tikifarm.


8 of the Cockeyed Tiki Mug by Von Franco available, however, we will take an additional 32 orders for these that will be shipped directly to the address of your chosing by TikiFarm.


30 of the Burnin Love Tiki Mug by Von Franco available, however, we will take an additional 10 orders for these that will be shipped directly to the address of your chosing by TikiFarm.

20 of the Triple Shot O' Love Shot Set by Von Franco-none on back order with Tikifarm.

12 of the Smokin Joe Barware Sets by Von Franco - none on back order with Tikifarm.

4 of the Artists Tiki Bowls by Von Franco, however, we will take an additional 31 orders for these that will be shipped directly to the address of your chosing by TikiFarm.

140 of the Frank en Tiki serigraph by Von Franco - a steel at only $ 75.00 each - exclusive to M Modern Gallery.

50 Pricilla Au Posters from The Pizz that he will happily sign and personalize for you that evening at only $ 30.00 each.

9 When the Weekend Comes We Rule as Gods Limited Edition Serigraph ON CANVAS by the Pizz. The one we have framed at the gallery looks AMAZING!

Approximately 175 signed original drawings from The Pizz (The Wall of Pizz) priced at only $ 75.00 to $ 300.00. It is doubtful that you will ever get an opportunity to purchase an original piece of artwork from The Pizz for this low price ever again (we scooped these from Pizz's personal stash!).

20 signed copies of TikiQuest.

20 signed copies of Tiki Road Trip.

1 SHAG original painting entitled "The Zombie" as featured in his book "The Bottomless Cocktail" at $ 12,500.00 (this is a consignment piece and was not actually painted for this show, however, we felt it appropriate due to its Tiki content.

There will be soft drinks and bottled waters for sale at $1.00 each and a special Pizz's Punch at $3.00 each. We decided that Wine and Beer really weren't the right beverages for a Tiki Bash.

NOTE: we will provide an insert that can be given in an envelope for Holiday gifts! That way there is something to place under the tree just in case...

Hope to see all of you there!

Regards, M Modern Tiki

I think the better part of TC was elsewhere that evening but I made it out. It was packed. They held it in a separate storefront near the gallery. I dashed straight from my car to the line with barely a second to look at all the items. Once inside, the line was long, polite people did get stuck at the end and waited a long time. Holden, Jay, et al were as nice as can be though.

The Outrigger set is terrific, Shag's Night of the Tiki set is a must have but the surprise for me was the Hi Ball tumblers by the Pizz. Mucho gusto.

Went to the Reef after but could only stay to try a Mai Tai. The bartender explained that he and the other bartender had been using different recipes but had to change it for the "Tiki people" and so now he squeezes fresh limes every day. Had to go just as those Tiki people started to show.

Drove home attempting to sing over Whiskeytown CD.
