the amount of tiki central kids is kind of "mini" also!
Sometimes... the mini tiki gatherings are the best of all. We had a huge tiki blowout a few weeks back... but it was the quiet hang afterwards with just a few tiki centralites that i remember most fondly
much luck on the crawl you guys... you got me inspired to do something like that in our neighborhood!

Ok, I know I needed at LEAST a day to recover & collect my thoughts before posting anything.
Had an awesome time!!
My thanks to the tiki central kids for making the scene helping make a memorable time! I hope y'all had fun as well.
My house still has the faint smell of pineapple even as I write this!
I am bummed because I actually missed Randy's part of the evening since I was at my place prepping stuff & getting my tiny house ready for the onslaught!
A few key people didnt show up with a few key ingredients, like ...ICE!! So people were showing up & had to wait a bit before drinks were served. That kind of threw off my planning, plus I should've just made a rum punch instead of trying to blend EVERY single drink.....
Sure, we ran out of food & eventually RUM (zoiks!), but there was plenty of other booze on hand.
ah well, live & learn! We made due with what we had & I was saying goodbye to my last guests at about 3:30 am! Everone kept gravitating toward the "smoker's lounge" in the basement & that is where we wrapped up the night. (choke!)
AND only one tiki mug broke, so that wasnt too bad! I only wish I took more photos, but I was too busy "living it"!
If anyone wants to post or send me any pics of the evening I would REALLY appreciate it!

whoops, gotta revise that:
TWO tiki mugs broke! (waah!)
1 harvey's hula mug & 1 Dukes, Kaui.
Oh well, it's not a party unless something breaks!
How sad that I didnt finish washing all the mugs til last night!
hmm, is anyone else gonna post their review?

I was so busy last weekend I didn't have time to read tiki central until yesterday so I'm just catching up.
I had a great time at both parties! Highlights:
Randy's (aquarj) punch from Intoxica, and his art collection; Naomi's cherry tomatoes stuffed with lomi lomi salmon and macadamia nut biscuits; bigbadtikidaddy's selection of mugs for drinking from (some I wish I had in my collection), and his wild friends that were already pretty lit up when I arrived from Randy's. I left early at 10 to catch the Saturn V at Club Deluxe.
Mahalo to both hosts! Sorry, I didn't bring a camera so I have no pics to share.

First of all I would like to thank our two gracious hosts. The company, the libations, and the tiki's made for a terrific night.
If any Tiki Centralites out there get the chance to visit either home they should definitely do so. i was very impressed.

Thanks to the people who came for the nice comments about my place - hope to do it again sometime. Finally catching up with some photos this weekend, but unfortunately I only have a couple to post from the party.
