I was there! I was tired & not at my gabbiest, but I've proven my existence! It's a cliche, but it was wonderful meeting everyone & I hope to see everyone again soon, at least sooner than it took me to work up to this.

I'm usually much chattier, but after getting home from the San Diego Real Ale Festival after midnight (see my tasting notes
here), waking up at 5:30, driving to Pomona to pick up my Gran'daughter from her Dad's, driving home & playing with a 1 year old 'til her Mom came by at 4... Well I think "tired" touches upon how I was feeling.

WOW..!!! That about sums up our thoughts after our evening with the TCers at the new Mr. TIKI's..

This was our first outing with the great people of TIKI Central. In all honesty we were a little nervous about going to Mr. TIKI's, we didn't know anybody and we didn't know how anyone would recognize us.. After about 2 minutes at the bar you all just started introducing your selves to us, we felt like part of the crowd every quickly.. Thank you so much for being so friendly and nice.. We had a GREAT time and we can't wait for the next time we can get together will all of you again...

Mahalo…

Utop & i made it in time for a drink, was great seeing lots of TCers there, Have nothing but best wishes for Mr. Tiki's longevity there. Special thanks to Kick_The_Reverb for having us over before we headed back to LA.

I was so close, but still so far... Even being in Del Mar, I just could not get the rest of the way there.... I am now in deep regret, but I can not wait to drop by during one of my future trips.

Here's some crappy-as-ever pictures! I've also updated the record for Mister Tiki's in Critiki.


Tikis!


Mondo Martiki, with the Stanley Cup of shakers and a very impressed Floratina!


Baxdog can't wait till we finish our drink so he can take his Mondo Martiki glass home! (Thanks again, Bax!)


Suck 'em up!


Wall o' Bosko!


Another tiki! And my pants! So wrinkly!


Another tiki!


Extra-chunky bamboo!


Gaping maw of tiki!


The artist Bosko deep in thoughts of tiki!


Mary Blair-esque (to me, anyway) orange flowers!


The bar!


Bamboo spaghetti-o's tabletops!


Ladies' room tiki! This is not for boys! For ladies only!


Tiki Diablo (thechikitiki) & Bosko chatting!


Arrrgh! Neon green nosering on a tiki! NO NO NO!


Kon-Tiki tribute tiki!


Are they glass float lamps or pufferfish lamps?! They're both!


Yet! Another! Tiki!

Whew. And with that, I've thankfully extinguished my supply of exclamation points.

Hey Modmana, i noticed under Locating Tiki forum that Mr. Tiki is not on there. Since you setup the great opening event with TC, would you do the honors.


Tbird.

oops...just notice mriddle did it, but not under the "Mister Tiki" name.

Humu, I was just wondering how many people confused you with the hostesses? Your outfit was better, but I bet the hoi poloi would have trouble telling the difference.

I was pretty nervous about that. It's embarassing enough to show up somewhere with the same outfit as someone else, but it's especially embarassing to discover you're wearing the same outfit as the staff. I apparently lacked any air of authority, though, as no one attempted to ask me how much longer it would be for their table.

TBird, Thanks for pointing that out. I added an entry for Mister Tiki. Since mriddle's entry only had a generic label and lacked details I went ahead and created a new one (sorry mriddle). The description is straight from the Mister Tiki website. I'll go back in the near future and customize the description to reflect the TC perspective a little better.

A big, very special thanks to the Godfather of Tiki, Modmana, for setting this up. We were well taken care of.



Ha! I'm sure I don't deserve that title. In case anyone is wondering, that was sort of an inside joke at our table. I am a self-proclaimed tiki neophyte. I'm not worthy...

Humuhumu and Monkeyman, those are some great pics! I have tons more pics of my own and lots of comments about the restaurant that I'll be adding as soon as I get a little more free time.

It was great seeing everyone on Saturday, especially all the LA/OC people who made the long drive down! We're always up for going back. If anyone is in town and wants to meet up, feel free to contact us.

Ah man, this place and event was too cool and fun. Bosko was really pleased that we all made it out and dug the bar. For the record, Bosko did not put that ring in the nose of the moai.
