Thanks to everyone who made it out last night. I hope y'all had a great time. We really enjoyed ourselves. Sam's Sabotage lived up to it's name as always, and we had a little local color from one of "the regulars". Heather's prints sold like wildfire at the Grotto and the rum flowed freely late into the night.

Extra super hyper special thanks to Trader "Poodle" Pup for the INCREDIBLE new Foggy Grotto Lamp! Must see to believe!

Start posting pictures, folks!

Everybody here is outasite
They don't bark and they don't bite
It's a super natural delight
Everybody dancing in the moonlight

What a great time with a great big beautiful family. Fun fun fun.

The SF Crawl weekend was a blast! Thanks to Martiki, Mig, Melintur, Tiki Mama & anyone else I may have forgotten for putting on such a cool event. The goody bags, laminates and drinks were a nice touch! Nice to see my old NorCal TC Ohana again as well as meeting some new ones.

See y'all at Oasis!

Finally, I get to meet the special people that keep me in spirit from just a simple (but incredible) message board. Truly a special group of people and yes JT, Family. I did not meet one rude or distant person (not counting me that is). The only thing that Im pissed off about, is that its over.
Martiki, you get the Big Kahuna Award for your effort, and Mig too. Thanks so much!
Fellow TCers, I love ya and Im proud to be a part of this tribe.
Only the best to all of you!
Unga

As promised, here's a few highlights:

Trad'r Sam's:


Mr. Smiley and his three feet of braided nosehair


TikiMama & Heather Mills (who's now posting as Travellin' Tiki, welcome aboard!)


Rebecca (aka Boo Loo), cynfulcynner & Martiki


TikiVixen, Mr. Smiley, a woman who doesn't post on TC and whose name I've forgotten but she was very nice and I liked her, and Pop Ylop's manager


Rebecca, looking strangely calm


TikiMama, almost certainly in the middle of saying something terribly witty


Mig, guarding the World's Girliest Drink (it had whipped cream on top, fer chrissakes!)


Rebecca, Martiki & Mig


Perhaps my favorite aloha shirt ever -- and it's a cowboy shirt, too!

Foggy Grotto:


Martiki serves the very lucky TikiVixen and Mr. Smiley


Modern man in his natural habitat -- behind his home bar


Service with a smile


Martiki models his fez


Rebecca is proud to head the Ladies' Tiki Auxiliary


Martiki finishes making my drink, which featured some quite yummy homemade absinthe


One always knows where to find Mig


Pop Ylop's manager, with his three-foot goatee and Mickey Mouse tshirt


Mig and his three-foot astroboy


A teasing peek at Cynful's three-foot merkin


Pop Ylop's manager discusses the exotica biz with Melintur


AAAAAAAAAHHHH!


Martiki strikes a Maynard-esque pose with his swell new bamboo lamp from Trader Pup (you can't see it in this photo, but Pup carved "Foggy Grotto" in the bamboo by hand)


Martiki has succeeded where so many others have failed... you know you want it

Nice work on the lamp Trader Pup. That is a beauty. What tools did you use to carve the Bamboo? Anybody else have pictures of this lamp. Coincidently, I just finished a lamp that is made from bamboo, rope and sea glass. I will post a pic when I get a chance. Once again, killer work on the lamp and Pop Ylop record covers. It was good hanging out again with all you in the SoCal tribe.
