Snow...freezing cold...salt stained footwear...misery. It's TIKI TIME!

MizBubs and I can't take it any more. We need to get out and have couple a drinks. It's f*cking cold and awful, and we can't afford airfare to Las Vegas, New Orleans or Key West right now, so we gotta come up with a plan B. Nothing beats the winter blues and cabin fever like a few Mai Tai's, Zombies, Apu-Apu's or Suffering Bastards in the company of friends. Here's the deal:

MizBubs and I will be at the Tiki Terrace in Prospect Heights on Friday, February 23, from 6:30pm on. Here's the address:

1 S. Wolf Road, Prospect Heights

They have good drinks, and some live music starting around 7pm. And they got snacks! (awesome fresh taro chips) Come on, let's hang out for a while. We deserve it.

Hope we see a few of you there.

I'll be there! I've got to pick my son up from my ex's house and drop him off at mine, and I'll be there, probably around 8ish. My wife is going to stay home with the kids, so she unfortunately won't be there.

That Shriner TIki guy is awesome! It combines my fascination with Tiki with my fascination with Shriners. Do you actually own him or was it just a photo you found?

Bubs said...

Glad you can make it! Hopefully other blogger luminaries will also attend...

The tiki is ours, he was a stocking stuffer I gave to MizBubs a while ago. He occasionally accompanies us on trips, and I think this picture was taken in Las Vegas.

You swine! How have we not done a link exchange yet?!?

Bubs said...


I blame the ether.

I sure will try to make it. I have the rough draft of a big paper due on Sunday night. I'll double time it this week to try to make some time for relaxing.

I'm SO in.

If this were 5 years ago we could all have gotten stinky drunk and crashed at my parents' house as they used to live about a block from there. Now we shall have to be more responsible.

I'm looking forward to seeing you and MizBubs again.

Bubs said...

Lulu, excellent! We're looking forward to seeing you. Ah yes, responsibility. MizBubs and I are throwing knives to determine who the designated driver will be.

Ten, hope you can make it. Remember, if you unwind real well Friday night and get some good, solid rum-induced sleep, you'll be SO much more productive on Saturday and Sunday.

And, of course, feel welcome to bring friends.

I would go out that night, but I haven't got a grass skirt to wear.

Bubs said...

Skirt-free is not a problem, I'll bet we can fix you up with a nice coconut shell bra instead. Anyway, after a couple of zombies no one will care either way.

I do hope you can make it--we'd love to meet the most important blogger on the internets.

Turns out my meeting is cancelled, which gives me a few more hours to complete homework on Friday. Maybe I will have some fun after all!
