Welcome to

...a work in progress...

Max says "What the heck, dude...when's this thing gonna open? I'm ready to party!"

Yes, I know, you've been hearing about this for more than a few years. Well, it's not finished yet, but it's close. Since I'm doing most of the work myself, it's taking a lot of time. I've taken a long time collecting authentic pieces from around the world, as well as a generous helping of hokey crap to give it an authentic vintage tiki lounge feel. A big thank you goes out to all those who have made contributions, large and small, to the project, whether it be trinkets or labor or just moral support and patience. It means a lot to me to have so much of this personalized by friends in some form or other. It is for my friends that I set out to create this little haven of alcohol and flaming things. Funny how those always seem to go together when men get serious about having fun, isn't it?

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!

It's a good bet that:

 I'll pour my drinks too strong,
I'll play my music too loud,
and you might not like my taste in music.

If you don't like it, then throw your own damned party!

Stay tuned...
