Hey Bong!!?? What if our "signifigant others" are on "the list" but I'm not (i.e. Cheekygirl and me)?? Will I have to sit on her lap or will I be condemmed to the far away bar land?? Just curious.

Oh! and before I forget..... if you need a drummer for any of the musical festivities, consider my help. Anything I can also do to help, consider it done.



JRtiki,

Unfortunately, Sam's said they enforce the fire code of 75 people in the room. I will put your name on the waiting list, and as history tells me, the first 5 people on the list will more than likely get in.

Hate to seem like an a-hole (well, sometimes) but the laws the law and burning to death sucks (just as Great White).

Well, I obviously missed this one...procrastinators RULE!
It would be cool if you could add me and the Mrs. to the waiting list, but even if we don't get into "the event", we'll be at the bar to celebrate anyway.

Thanks for setting this event up and doing all the organizing and everything, I know it can't be easy.

btw...was there ever mention of a "venders area" for this? Or am I thinking of something else?

Just got back from the Reef Bar @ Caliente do'in a little fixin with my main man Mr. C'Al. Got a call from Bong the other night about this post (no computer access out there)and had no idea what was going on. Anyway, got to talkin with C'Al and we came up with a solution for this dilemma. I rented the Tiki Boat on Int. Tiki Day (8/14), out of Balboa from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.. This is what we have lined up so far. There is a 1/2 hour pre party and a 1/2 hour after party. Full Hawaiian buffet. 3.00 Mai Tai's. Beer and Wine 2.00. (barf bags extra! Arrrr!!) And, APE (the band) will be playing on the boat. All this so far for 20.00 a head. The only drag is that there is a limit (for weight on the boat) so we'll have 125 spots available, instead of the full capacity of 140. Anyway, I'll have full info tomorrow and will post. (working on Tiki Farm as I write for the event mug. Also have a few other suprises in the line up and am working on a hotel down there for a group rate.) Hope this will work for everyone.

p.s. The Reef Bar is a lot better than it was last year. Wait to you see the tikis that C'Al carved. Nobody will know the work he put into it except he and I and the few mid week guests that were trippin' out on what he was doing. They face the pool and hold up the roof on the Lanai. He lives up to his name!!!

Whoa - hold on... the boat goes from 5 - 9? What time do the festivities at Sam's start, 'cause I wanna do BOTH, and I'd hate to miss anything!

Ben,

I cancelled my reservations at Sam's as next Monday was my last day to cancel and not lose my deposit. I thought you were serious. The post still seemed valid as today was April 2nd.

Is someone else wants to get the Sam's gig rolling again, the Smokin' Menehunes will play.

I had a bad week anyway after getting the boot from TC (that's why I logged on using my dauhgter's name) because of my careless postings, so when Pop told me you set up other plans I thought "hey, why not".

No worries. You're my bruddah. But now some else needs to get something going at Sam's if the date is still available.

"OUCH!! Damn, that one really hurt..." says Doctor Z, as he slaps himself on the forehead and morphs into a big, cellophane wrapped sucker (like on the old Bugs Bunny cartoons) and a trombone plays mocking sounds in the background.

Yep, got me hook, line and sinker on that one...

It's all about the Tiki, man!

Bong- When you called me at Caliente last week and you were stress'n out on what to do, I thought right then and there about a perfect April fools joke to play on you. I would have thought if you would have thought that I was serious about this , you would have at least called me. Maybe the whole gig was wrong from the get go. Like I said, "the way to thin out the list is to charge the people right away." The ones who pay go. The ones who don't, don't go. Even if you cancelled Sams there is 5 months to decide if you want to throw a party for International Tiki Day. I know you'll pull something off, brudda Bong! Maybe a OC Mini Crawl!! Arrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Jeepers Creepers! I didn't really read through this post very carefully! Unfortunately, I was still sulking about the $68 bucks I lost at Sam's when I cancelled out.

Bong, please put me on the waiting list!
Damn, you snooze you lose!

Okay, for us poor slobs that can't get into Sam's, tell me please that we will still be able to get a commerative ITD#2 mug (that's if there will be one).

And for those that can't get in, cause it seems like I will be one of them, I will graciously offer my time and energy to planning. (Laney or anyone that is firming up any plans--let me know.)

Bong,

Inquiring minds want to know...why did you cancel the "Sam's Seafood for So Cal INTERNATIONAL TIKI DAY" party?

Well, I was banned from the board on April 1 and when I talked to my co-hort Poly Pop on his way up to SF, he told me about Ben's April Fool's post Re: him and Al renting the Tiki Boat.

We thought that since everyone seemed to be torqued about the 75 person capacity at Sam's, that Ben's message was the real deal. That and April 1 was the last day for me to cancel at Sam's and not lose my deposit.

Kind of reminds me about the Christmas when I was a kid and I wanted some toy or other that my mom obviously didn't/couldn't buy for me and I made a big scene over it, so on Christmas, guess what? I got nothing.

Don't worry though, Pop and I are lining something else up for ITD.
