And what a night it was. The room looked fantastic with all the top notch craftmanship on display. Drinks were great as always, and the Rangoon was fried just right. Thanks to all the performers who added the right touch to the night: The smooth sounds of Frank Novicki, the classic hi-jinks of King Kuku and Crazy Al (who left two terrified teenage girls in their wake) and of course, the incomparable Pop Ylop. Then over to the Conga for a great raffle, delicious lomi lomi, and a little limbo.

Thanks to everyone for coming out. Let's see some pictures! In fact, I know for certain that there is video of Pop Ylop's performance....

I just want to say that I had a great time both Thursday and Friday nights for the Tiki Crawl. Wish I could have joined you all on the bus Saturday too, next year.

For a newbie on Tiki Central and for the crawl I want to say it was very nice to meet such a great group of people.

I'll have pictures of Friday & Saturday night available later today/tonight.

I am assuming next year, I won't be able to purchase raffle tickets though

Thanks to everyone who took the time to organize this event and again for a great time.

allrightie then, i suppose i shall start posting the incriminating evidence. heheheh....


mig, what a tremendous pleasure it was to try on your butt glasses. you are a very classy fella, and i really enjoyed meeting you. still weirded out about how close you live to my old stomping grounds...


bigbadtikidaddy and the drunken hat were greeted by gramps (you dirty dirty man!) outside the conga lounge. gramps had a firm hold of the night. ladies (and men?) beware!



jungletrader, me, the drunken hat, and bigbadtikidaddy squeezed into the packed conga lounge.


the one and only ungabunga! this man is stud! what an honor to finally meet him.


and yes! other than kanaloa and myself, someone else DID win a raffle prize! yea for tikimaxton and his mug!

it was a great night for all and it was splendid meeting so many people on the board. thank you all for being so open and friendly to new people. i did feel rather stalker like in recognizing many people from the board, so sorry if i scared a few.

Here's a link to get you started until I have time to pull out a few choice photos. Captions will come later.

http://public.fotki.com/Humuhumu/sfcrawl_2004/day_2/

Hardest working (wo)man in Exotica, emotional scarring of children, backup chimps, spell Novicki, tiki booblace, stir the box, butt glasses raffle, sexy grumpy bartender.

p.s. -- Video of the elusive, enigmatic Pop Ylop to come....

Ladies and gentlemen, here (s)he is, that most exotic of blooms, Pop Ylop!

FYI -- I can't get this file to work on my computer, but mig reports it works for him.

Pop Ylop had that written into her rider! She refused to be filmed right side up. I also had to present a gift of individually hand picked corn kernels for her pet "jungle fowl" (which looked suspiciously like a chicken), and I had to massage her left pinkie. I don't know what that was about.

Your pics are great Humuhuma !!
A big Tiki thanks to Mig, Martin and all the organizers for a great time...and for including our humble Conga Lounge on the tour.
It was awesome having you all there and putting a face to a name. I know the Conga can get a little crowded at events like these. I hope the abundance of music and drinks made up for the lack of floor space.
Looking forward to seeing you all again in the near future.

Mahalo to TikiTony and the Adrift.com crew for hanging around and selling me tiki-stuff out of the back of the truck (The Rapa Nui is framed and proudly hanging in my bedroom) and also to UngaBunga -excellent tiki shirt -as I was the last straggler to arrive at Trader Vic's, and what a glorious tiki mecca it is.

The Conga Lounge, congas make great party toys - I have a photo of two beautiful wahinees (whose names I don't recall) with conga.

WHAT AN EASTER ISLAND MURAL!!! The bar, however, should be renamed after its most striking feature.

Thanks to all those who stayed & closed the place: King Kukulele, Steve, Chongolio, Otto, and all other friends (memory gets cloudy at the end of the evening).

King - Love the Room 135 song.

Night 2 was way out there. It crushed me. No probelem with extra sleep so could hang w/ the face suckers/ lunch loosers/ smiling faces and exotic drinks. Nothing like a NAVY GROG

Mike, the Conga Lounge was a great addition this year -- it was packed, but hey, it was a party, whaddya expect! What was surprising, however, was that as crowded as it was, the waitstaff was still quite prompt and courteous -- impressive, in the face of a mob like ours!

Here's some pics from that night:

Trader Vics:


One section of the vendor tables


The two poor girls who King tortured, and their lovely savior from the audience, who led them in a hula. I overheard one of the girls in the restroom saying "Oh my god, I am so never going to talk ever again"


I got to sit next to Pop Ylop!


Pop Ylop goes Maori


Pop Ylop takes the stage


Pop Ylop becomes a blur of enticing and enchanting movement, like a Mystery Girl, only more mysterious, and more girly


There was SWOONING! SWOONING I tell you!

These next few pics were taken by Floratina; you can tell because they're well lit, clear, and nicely composed:


jungletrader & Polynesian Pop


Trader Pup, King Kukulele, and Mrs. Pineapple


Frank Novicki & Hanford Lemoore


Naomi, aquarj & bigbadtikidaddy

Okay, now we're back to my cruddy pics again:


The King and I


Me & the delicious Tina Tina Floratina

Conga Lounge:


The Mob (well, part of it)


TikiMama chats with the elusive Mrs. TikiMaxton


The compulsory bowl shot -- Tiki Monkey still clings to his primary drink
