I've been waiting for the official info on this event for weeks! Finally, something in the events forum east of the Mississippi and north of the Mason/Dixon. See you there!

All right,

An actual tiki event happening in good ole' Motown. Matter of fact, Livonia was one of my old stomping grounds for quite awhile in the days following high school. Have fond memories of Chin's on Plymouth Rd. My mom says she also has fond memories of the Trader Vic's at the Statler back in the days. Sorry I won't be there to meet up with you guys, but I will definitely put the word out to family/friends to come out on 6/19.
P.S. Let's go PISTONS!~~Cousin Dave
