As of now, it looks like I'm in. I am actually going to try to get there later this afternoon in order to avoid the "after 3:30pm" traffic. I will be swooping down on the local thrift/antique shops. Lookout!

TikiBird, CT295, SCD,
Looking forward to seeing all of you tonight. I know you all have a drive to make it out, so thanks for making the trip to launch, ... the company that is, not the Ray's Mistakes or your dinner.
BigBroTiki, thanks for the note, sorry you can't make it but I am sure you are having a blast in Chicago.
6 hours to a Tiki Ti Zombie!
TT

6:00 p.m., damn--that’s early for us poor slobs that hafta work until 6:00 p.m. Tell me will there still be any “give a ways” for
belated arrivals? Or will the Early Birds get all the worms? How about if I hop up and down on one leg, play the kazoo, whilst
singing I’m a Little Tiki Tea Pot? I'll be there regardless with with Johnny Rotten Tiki--violating every traffic law on the books to get to the Tiki Ti!

Don't worry, there are a LOT of giveaways, and we'll be sure to space them out for the "fashionably late". See you there!

Super-swell time last night! Thanks, Ona Tiki guys for the shot glass. My grandma really enjoyed meeting you and she even took the pendant you gave her into the restaurant to show off. Great art, great music, great drinks, great folks; last night was just, well, great!

Last time at the Tiki-Ti, Humuhum ordered a Bloodi Tiki and damn it looked good! I couldn't wait for the re-opening to order me one. It's not your typical "tropical" drink, but it was DAMN good!

The place was packed, standing room only, JRT and I waited about 30 minutes by the door, peering in and salivating at the drinks and at Ona Tiki's wares. I know TCer's were probably busy packing for the SF Crawl, they were missed, of course, but missed out. The give a ways were stunning. We drank like sieves and collected enough raffle tickets to pull up a winning number. A divine Coltrane mug with a bromedliad plant.

Thanks to the Tiki-Ti and "Ona Tiki's" for a great evening. And of course, it was nice meeting everyone that I hadn't met before! Cheers!

TikiTanked, Mahalo for a wonderfully intoxicating time and thank you to Onatiki for the Coltrane mug & the incredible Hugo pendant.

I loved the evening's exotica tunes, so did Mike, he told me it reminded him of when Tiki-Ti opened in the '60s and his dad played that kind of music.

Mahalo to King Kukulele and Aquarj for keeping me company outside in line and for MRiddle for wadding through the crowd to say hello.

However, I'm not sure if anything tops the SugarCaddyDaddy caddy.

Thanks to all of you for making our launch party such a treat. It was nice to meet many of you for the first time, and always great to see everyone else. WeirdUncleTiki's Grandmother was a hoot.

We are very greatful to Mike and Mike for hosting our shindig. There was no other place we even considered for our launch. We got to play 78's and vynil until 10, to the delight of myself and many attendees. Mike was also very helpful in our efforts for making the party run as smooth as cocnut cream.

When i get my camera back from Mike I will post the photos.

Thank you all again,
TT

Hello all,

My wife and I decided to visit the Tiki-Ti on the one perfect night we could be in LA. We were honored to meet the people from Ona Tiki and they were absolutely great! They gave us some very nice items that we will cherish always and we were just so thrilled to have stumbled upon them at the right time. We had no idea that the launch party was going on...we just got very very lucky.

I wanted to take this time to thank all of them and the people at Tiki-Ti for the generousity and hospitality. You made some Okie-transplants very happy to be back in our homeland.

All the best to everyone.
