just got back home safe and sound...
what a terrific party... got to hang with the old family crew and met some fun new tiki central and even non-tiki central folks, too.

i gotta say - i was feeling lousy and almost turned around when the 405 traffic started sucking on the way down - but i just turned off the freeway, took the coastal route and boy was i glad I went - I feel 100% better!

Thanks you to the good Doctor and his girl.

Yes it is I the wayward mixologist - that Reverb Crash did it to me..... I couldn't hang on for my own shift at the bar... I don’t think my shift was coming up til midnight – next time I need an earlier shift (I am putting in my request now… scheduled shifts with time limits). Now for those of you who couldn't make it to the shindig, I'll give the synopsis. By the time I arrived at 8:45pm (had a previous pirate party event) the bar room was packed to the gills and they were just changing "guess bartender shifts." Reverb was up next and many of us waited for the famed Reverb Crash. Antics ensued in line with Atomic Cocktail starting a chant "Reverb Reverb" (I think? correct me if I'm wrong with Polynesian Pop on bongo accompaniment) that would have sent any other inexperienced mixologist packing with their bottles, but Reverb held steady and mixed up his first batch of the stuff. The line at the bar never grew smaller – I think the room did – as no one could get through! Outside the party was swinging with a bunch of people doing the tiki craft thing in the garage; eating, drinking, talking, shouting, etc. Where were the cops? (It was outa control – noisewise) Then Reverb finished off his shift with the anticipated experimental "Comb Over." I don't know what that drink was about, since I was pretty much "under-the-table" after that "Reverb Crash" and had to sober meself and pack up for home. Mrs. Velour was up next, preparing to make her famed "Livesaver" concoction and Dr. Z was giving people shots of some kind of liquer in the kitchen. It was full-on insanity. People came from as far away as San Diego and Thousand Oaks and maybe farther… (good to see Mr. And Mrs. Bongo Fury…. But where was Al n' Shelley, or Monkeyman?… Maybe I didn't make it far enough into the backyard?...) and I am sure today that half of these partying hoity toity's are pretty sick dogs! Meself, I managed 'er to live to tell this little tale (without too much of a hangover, hee, hee - at least I won't be lying in bed all day). Could this be hands-down the hoity toity party event of the year?! Thank ye Dr. Z and Z Girl for another amazing evening of partying!

Thank you Dr. Z and Z girl for a fabulous party, my first tiki party. Thank God no hangovers this morning. But just good memories of some nice people I met for the first time. Some great curried chicken and a baby tiki Kon -tiki mug. Oh, lets not forget my rainbow design ku. And last but not least the best mai-tai in the entire U.S.A. Cant wait for next year. OK I have no life.

Good Chow, Good Grog, Good Friends!

A special thanx to all the chefs! That Coconut Chicken satay kept me alive...

Thanx Doc-Z and Lady-Z for having us over...

P.S. How many different colors is your backyard lawn now...hee hee!



Happy the man, and happy he alone,

He who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst,

What a great tiki party! Mahalo to Dr. Z for hosting the event, and to the guest bartenders for getting me completely smashed, and to Humuhumu for giving me a really cool dress, and to King Kukulele and Weird Unkle Tiki for letting me sit in at the ukulele jam, and to the bbq chefs who were cooking up the yummy cocoanut chicken satay kabobs. It was a blast meeting so many people from this forum. I had way too much fun. Rick took a lot of pictures, and he'll be posting them soon.

I forgot to bring home my notebook filled with song lyrics. (My brain was slightly clouded when I left the party) Dr. Z, if you find it let me know.

What a great party, thanks a lot to Doctor Z & Dolphin Tiki for hosting this great event (and letting us stick around overnight), Sabu for cooking, Tiki Pug, Lady Velour and Humuhumu for bartending, King Kukulele, Iuka Grog and Ookoo Lady for the music, Johnny Velour for the wacky guest bartender name tents, and for everyone who said good words about the Reverb Crash.
I also want to thank Mrs. Kick the Reverb for the behind the scenes and bar side assistance, without which I would have never been able to supply you all with the drinks (and she actually stood in line for one!)
I appologize for making my bar shift so long, I wasn't looking at the clock, I was just trying to keep up with demand.

The Combover is not officialy ready, and testing will continue in a more controlled enviornment (that might prevent accidental mass pouring of Pernod into the drink).

Mahalo, and see you all at ITD
