Aloha Gang!

Firstly, if you have opened this to read it, YOU HAVE TO RESPOND! No more chickens here--DON'T BE SHY! Please limit yourself to three responses each (I know it's hard, but I want to even out the playing field a little).

If you remember correctly, our former breakfast room was dubbed "The REEF." I say former because we now use the bar for breakfast service. And, as you know, the bar is the real REEF, reincarnated thanks to Crazy Al, Bamboo Ben, and their worthy assistants.

So, we need a new name for the meeting space (which used to be the breakfast room). Is this making sense to you?

Let me give you a little update. In keeping with our personality, we have recently renamed each building. The former West Wing is now known as Wallis Island (aka the Alnshely Show). The former East Wing is now known as Easter Island. And, the Tahitian Lanai will remain the Tahitian Lanai (its' namesake the digs at the old Waikikian in Honolulu). Aside from the "W," and "E," conotation in the first letter of these names, these three islands are geographically located in the same order, in the South Pacific. Cool, huh? Are you with me?

So, I'm looking for a name with some significance or connection with history, for this "new" meeting space. Here are a few ideas...
South Seas Military reference (like WWII)
Polynesian reference
Historical reference to the Resort (Ken Kimes, Elvis, Vic Damone, Rat Pack, the Angels ball team)
Historical reference to Palm Springs
Tiki reference
60s reference

Hopefully you get it by now. If you don't...STOP DRINKING for God's sake! International Tiki Day is over! We need to make certain your liver holds out for Tiki Oasis IV!

Dive in! Mahalo!

P.S. Those two night shirts are really our embroidered t-shirts.

"the Aku AKu"

hope that is what those mean.

Something tells me that the Mai Kai wore off on you Casey! We'll be bugging you as soon as the weather get's back to the 80/90's. Have many ideas...

p.s. if it's a "Meeting Room" you will need a meeting table and a podium??

p.s.s. and with all these new areas at the Tropics, you will need directional signs to aim us(tiki freaks/guests/staff) in the right direction??

Over one thousand custom tiki bars served! (Watch out Mc Donalds!!!) Web-site soon!

Donovan's Reef (John Wayne's South Pacific Idyll). Just re-watched it last night and got all choked up when The Duke and Lee Marvin got in a fight and busted up the bar. And ruined that SWEET white suit Lee was wearing.

another one:
4) Bongo Room ("nod" to Bong)

1.The Maneaba - a micronesian meeting house.

2.The Goona-Goona - named after the "native" nudie movies of the 30's and 40's.

  1. The Tarawa Beach Lingerie Lounge - in tribute to Ed Wood Jnr who bravely fought on the beaches of Tarawa whilst wearing womens underwear.


This has certainly added a boost to my demeanor today. But, then again, reading replies usually does. I think I might have found the answer in an earlier reply, BUT KEEP GOING!

OK, I have to admit....this one is funny..."I've been to Hawaii."
"Oh ya, what island?"
Strange, sometimes the "dicks" (as in Richard, of course) are always the funniest.
OK, you, UB know I'm jabbing in fun, and I'm serious, I like your "room name" the best so far...not sure if Casey will go for it.
Who knows?

I was going to suggest the same, can I throw my weight behind this? I haven't seen any where that we get a vote, but if I do, it goes toward this.


Hope I haven't repeated anyone...
