Like me, you probably already picked up your signed copy at La Luz, but just in case you missed out.

I was at 8-Ball last weekend and found this flyer...


Tiki Chick: A Tiki Noob's Travels

CJ

we'll be there...I've been wanting to check out 8-ball for sometime now

yeah me too,
never been there.

and I didn't have anybody sign my book,
as I got it at 4 pm and put it in the car before heading over to tiki ti that night.

thanks for the heads up.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

p.s. Sven and JonPaul should be there to sign also.
since they did so many great photos for the book.

Yet another great reason to go to 8-Ball.

I'll be hunting for Squid. Missed you at the first book signing. It was nice meeting you for the first time at the Mayflower. I can hear you now, "Dano who?" I have been planning to visit the 8-Ball for some time since it's kind of in my neck of the woods.

HA! I do remember you. I met you pre-$6 Mai Tais and we talked about your aunt!

See ya at 8-Ball...

And there will be FREE Mai Tais at 8-Ball this Sunday! And mug creations by the various artists (as great as the La Luz book signing was, that element was missing).

And I will sign whatever you ask me to. :)

I can't wait to get this Jimmy Buffett record I just picked up, signed! :P
hahaha, juss keeedeeeeng!

I missed a few autographs at La Luz, myself. Hoping to add to them. I gotta check out that record store, too! Finally got my hands on a working record player and I'm enjoying the sounds! Still working on the conversion software, though. Here's to free mai tais!

After shopping 8 Ball and autographs not forgetting the record store I think I will head to The Tonga Hut. Any takers?

Looks like I'll be swinging by with Ilene and Trader Joe. We'll have to stop across the street at Portos Bakery before they close at 4 so I can get the Pan Con Bistec sandwich and a guava pastry. Gotta build a little foundation before I partake of those free mai tais. See you all there.

See ya there!!

Great Times at the 8 Ball. Thanks again to Naomi and all the Cats & Kittens at the 8 Ball for sponsoring the event, all the Artists & publishes for coming out & signing our books. I did manage to do some shopping, pick up a few mugs and pay a visit to my NEW CRAZY AL TIKI! She's a Collector for sure. Not quite done yet but will be soon all those fine details yet to come! Thanks Al she looks great I'm excited!

i like how the nose resembles a fleur-de-ly! Awesome Carving so far,Al! Kelly-you're one lucky Duck!

is there a "hatch" in the back to put all the ugly mugs?

Aaaah, what a lovely summer Sunday afternoon it was!

The happy author and his lovely wife:

a store for treasure hunting!:

The alluring proprietress talks to artiste extraordinaire Squid:

Past them we can glimpse the trophy shelf:

The headhunters are hypnotized:

Do YOU own all these?:

This one is a no-brainer:

How about holding a Mai Tai now?:

Satisfied customers:

...and all is well in Tikiland:

Nice pics! We had a great time!

Yeah....so, I was there with my wife too yesterday. Unfortunately we didn't really talk to anyone. Just spent the whole time looking around. She's been sick this past week or so, so it was a little difficult to not be worried that we'd have to jump up and go at any point.

So if anyone heard about someone dropping a Mug by accident...yeah, that was me. I was looking at the back of the artists series Mugs over by the wall of Tiki, and one of them slipped out of the box, hit the toe of my converse and then the floor. My wife took off running, and I just stood there ready to drop in horror. Luckily though, the Mug was fine...but I spent the rest of the time not wanting to pick up anything else "Breakable." really wanted to meet and talk to people I know from Facebook and here, but it didn't happen. One of these days, hopefully. God willing I don't drop anything valuable then.

Well at least you didn't drop any of my Mai Tais! :D
It looks like there will be plenty of Tiki get-togethers this summer, so no regrets. I hope your wife feels better soon.

thanks Jeff. I was not able to partake of the Mighty Mai-tai's, though I went there hoping I could down a few, but it didn't happen. too many people standing there it was hard to move around. and I'm usually the kind of person that hangs back until there's an opening.

I have one of these books and although I have 7 of the mugs in it, I would like to find out if there is any interest. I can't post on Collections or Marketplace so thought I would revive this old post to get some feedback. Tiki Central is the ONLY place this book can find the right people.
