Hey Gang,

Sorry I have not been around lately. I have a few answers for the questions on here. The closest airport in Augusta Regional Airport at Bush Field. The city code is AGS. It will be much more expensive to fly into Augusta but Columbia SC is only 70 miles up I-20. Atlanta will be the cheapest to fly into (ATL) and is only two hour up the street.

There are many cool things to do down town in Augusta and a decent eclectic collection of shops, art galleries, restaurants, and bars.

As far as the kids go, they are not allowed inside of the Lounge but they could come in the Restaurant area where the food as well as the dancing will take place.

The dancers will be down both nights but the Luau (food) will be on Saturday night.

I hope to see many of you all here,

Brad

I still have time to rehearse my line, "Pass the poi, please."

What time will the dancers be going on? We'll be driving in from atl friday evening and we don't want to miss it!
Also, any good thrift shops, stores, etc to check out?
We're really excited-we've been waiting for the "grand opening" to come visit and can't wait to see Hale Tiki!
Tim

Everybody learn "The Hukilau Song" cuz Me, Swanky and Ona Koka are going to be singing it all night.

This is going to be great.

Really looking forward to throwing a mug at Basement Kahuna when he says "We're out of falernum, Big Man."

Brad - get plenty of mint.
And maybe have a defibrilator at hand.

Aloha Gang,

I have just confirmed that we will have Da Islanders for both nights.

Also, we are having polynesian finger food Friday night and a FULL Luau Sat. We will be using both sides for these events and that insures plenty of room for all. The other side is not Tiki but it is all original from the 1967 build out after the fire. It is rather swank and perfect for the food and dancing.

Much fun to be had by all.
I hope to see as many of you as poss here for this event.

Mahalo,

Brad

Rather Swank is certainly Swanky Enough for Me!!!

It dawns on me that I have seen reference to "Tickets" to this event mentioned in the General Chat Forum? Do we need Tickets?

Also... What is the Name of your Shop, Brad?

We're lookin' forward to Every Moment!!!

There is a restaurant in Hale Tiki? If thats the case, I may be able to come Friday night. The deal is, I'm part of small group on this trip and we have a toddler and her parents to consider; we previous decided we couldn't go because it would leave the kid (a fine child, I shot her pic with a tiki today) and one of her parents out in the cold.

Tikijackalope,
Brad may be too busy to see this, so I'll give you my semi-informed speculation as time is running short for you to make plans.
The restaurant portion of the building was not leased to Hale Tiki along with the bar. I suspect Saturday is a one-time use for the luau.
The building owners were being cautious and didn't want to put all their eggs in one basket. Of course, now that they've seen what a first class operation Hale Tiki turned out to be, they are very pleased with their new tenants. I wouldn't be surprised if the restaurant eventually did become part of Hale Tiki.

-JTD

Yes, Hale Tiki is one side of the building, with the former restaurant side vacant. They have use of it for storage, etc. So it will be cleaned up and used this weekend for the food. Plans are to hopefully move over into that space one day, but not yet. I think the performers will be out front, but it sounds like Brad is implying they would be in there as well. They are connected by the same front entrance and a short hallway.

Aloha Gang,

I would like to bring you all up to date on the plans here at Hale Tiki.

I do in fact have use of the restaurant side and intend to open it up for use soon. The theme that I am considering is late 50s early 60s Las Vegas. The Rat Pack era that I love so much.

The restaurant side has booths from the 1967 build out and all original gold wall paper along with the light fixtures too. I have tried to figure out a way to keep it original and fit in with Hale Tiki too. Here are my ideas. I would like to name each booth after one of the famous entertainers from the golden age of Vegas or a casino. For instance, the first booth would be Sammy Davis Jr. and the second one the Sands. The next would be Frank Sinatra and the one after that the Flamingo. Each booth would contain authentic memorabilia from whoever or whatever it was named after. I have an artist that has volunteered to do a life-size pen and ink head shot of the entertainers to be hung in each booth. Also many photos are available of the original casinos that made Las Vegas great during the golden age of the Rat Pack.

I think that the theme would fit well with Hale Tiki and still stay somewhat pure to the era.

What do you all think?

Brad

What is the address for the Hale Tiki?

Directions from I-20 would also be helpful.

Thanks,

TB

Oh, and the total trip time from Charleston is supposed to be about three hours and eight minutes. We are still planning to go Friday, but have to come back Friday too. Man, we must love Tiki.
