Las Vegas Huka Pele Tiki Weekender - Sept 6-9, 2018

Hi Everyone. This is the first year of this event here in Las Vegas. Sept 6-9, 2018 at The Thunderbird Hotel (newly remodeled).
It will be small (100-200 people), but will make it just that much better as you will feel closer to your fellow tikiphiles.
We have a presence on facebook, but I use Tiki Central for information and did not want to leave you out.

We have a first year Tiki Monkey Mug. The theme is Jungle Cruise this year. Buy at http://www.lvtiki.com

There will be a cocktail competition. You be the judge. Huka Pele Poker Chips used for the judging. Take a souvenir home after.

If you want to have a room party. This is the year. It will be smaller and more manageable. Just have fun. It does not need to be complicated. Have your room party wear fatigues and be jungle guerrillas, Flower Power theme, Jet Airliner, Old Shack tiki bar, Dark and spooky, so many easy ideas. Not officially part of Huka Pele Las Vegas Tiki Weekender, but if you have one, we will come visit you. I will have a location for your room party flyers too.

We will have Burlesque girls performing for you Saturday night.
