MAHAAAALLLLLLOOOOO!!!!
Thank you to everyone for coming out to the very first Tiki Taix Luau for YOU! It was a great turnout and I really hope you all took home some memories to...remember. Thank you to Sven, Iuka and Rod Grogg, all the Mai Kai Gents, all of Miss Mauna Loa, Al and Shelley, Dave and Rebecca and The Purple Orchid, and last but not least, thanks to the Friki Tikis for coming out to the Tiki Taix kickoff.
Next up: Tiki Taix II -- Mark your calenders, Friday March 26. Stay tuned for an announcement of the bill. We hope to work it out so Iuka Grogg AND Rod Grogg can come out to Tiki Taix next time.
Mahalo Again!
King Kukulele

Don't mess with Tiki Taix! Who knew there was a place in this crazy world for tiki cabaret? In particular, the live satellite feed to the Purple Orchid was a hoot -- I'd love to see that again when I can hear it better. I'm bummed I'm going to miss next month's Tiki Taix; I'll be in Orlando. Especially if the Smokin' Menehunes do end up on the bill.

Mahalos to all especially for making my out-of-town guests feel so at home. They had a great time! (I suppose that was pretty obvious... *ahem*. Hanging out with those girls is like living in a Trader Vic's menu cover. I miss them already.)

Here's a selection of pics:


My girlfriends, Erin & Monica


TraderPup, in an especially snazzy (zazzy?) suit.


Polynesian Pop -- that looks like a Heineken shirt, but it says "Hawaiian"... close one, Pop!


SugarCaddyDaddy, looking coy


The kick_the_reverbs, with a side of Al


KailuaGeoff & Sven, and you can barely make out Dave (Wersmo Derinc) & Rebecca in the back


An appropriately off-kilter and adorable pic of Shell in the Pacific


MonkeyMan gives his best goofy smile...


...and Atomic Cocktail gives his


Alright folks, this is why I can't be trusted to take pictures at these events -- I always get terrible pics of the best parts! This is Sven overjoyed at his gift from TikiFille


The Mai Kai Gents get started, and you can see Sven's new tiki in the background


The Mysterious Miss Mauna Loa takes the stage


My friends Erin & Monica are joined by Futura Girl


I ran into this friend of a friend from Seattle (no tiki connection) at Tiki Taix! Go figure


Iuka Grogg makes the rounds -- either that or I stumbled up on stage and I don't remember it.


King Kukulele & Iuka Grogg go serenading


Crazy Al looking, well, crazy

And of course, there are even more pictures
here.

Well, King is in the UK right now and is not available for an answer to that question. I imagine that it could follow the same timeline as the first Tiki Taix. It began at 10:00 PM. As for the ending time? Hmmm. Alnshely and I stayed at King's and he said we didn't get to sleep until 4:30. SO, it went late. I suppose the show didn't go beyond 2:00, but the loading-out and tiki shenanigans did. Get your rest in advance.

I arrived at Taix just after 9:00 and even the lounge area was full to the brim with diners (BTW They serve lovely meals at Taix) so I don't suppose they would turn that room over to the whole entertainment/ party vibe that early. I'll bet they can't start Tiki Taix much earlier than 10:00, but I could be wrong...

Thanks Tina! Naomi and I are thinking we might be able to catch this one, or at least part of it. If it works out, it'll be fun to catch some socal TCers there.

Here's a much better pic than that other one I took of TikiFille's carving for Sven, in its new home:

tikifille - you did a fantastic job replicating the BOT tiki! Even the surface texture is spot on. I envy your talents.
