Hi all, I'm new here. My TC handle is Robotiki and I'm currently spearheading the efforts to restore the Bahi Hut to it's former glory. I started going there in 1978 and it's pretty much intact so we are fortunate not to have to undo anything. The owner of the property, the mysterious Mr. B. has been wonderful at letting us do what we want. Having been a museum conservator and curator before I was an art director, I'm treating this as a museum restoration. Hope to see a lot of you all in there when we are done! More to follow!

Aloha !

Glad to see ya finally wash up on our shores... took ya long enough! :pieface: I started a thread about The BH and your/our efforts there:
http://www.fraternalorderofmoai.org/huimalu/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=21088

BIG Ole' HUZZAH for getting things rolling at The Bahi Hut, your efforts are truly noble and I know I speak for all of us here when I say... Mahalo ! !
Since you are here now and SPEARheading the effort... and more involved and in the loop than I can be... ( you are the loop ) maybe you can start keeping us posted in that thread on the preservation efforts. :thumbsup:

I already know ya but I'm pretty sure the rest of F.O.M. would like to get to know ya so... This thread is the place to let em' know more about who Robotiki is and what floats yer boat. Some of you may remember Robotiki from ... was it Hukilau 2012...2013? when we did the room crawl and you had the awesome robot room!

That was just the tip of the iceberg... his SciFi collection is HUGE !
The Natives crave more 411... give it up !

Aloha! I've been following a lot of this on Tiki Central and FB. Thank you so much for stepping in and to the others nearby who are helping. Jeff's tikis are amazing! Hoping to get there soon.

LOL... I keep forgetting about TC ! I think I made one post in the past 3-4 years...TROLLS finally drove me out. F.O.M.'s shores are much friendlier and little to no DRAMA !

Thanks for the warm welcome. As my handle implies, I'm addition to tikis, I'm into robots. As in full scale repros of movie robots. Being quite huge, they take up a lot of space and have their own room. The robot room is always changing. One comes in and another goes out. As soon as I get the hang of this I'll post some images. Meantime keep up with the progress on our Bahi Hut project on the thread Bo started. In a sea of stories of lost tiki venues, this is emerging as a story of preservation. We are so fortunate to have caught this thing in time and turned it around.

Aloha and Welcome! I am glad so,eone is doing something with the old Bahi Hut...I had lovely evenng there last year with a couple of those VERY RED Mai Tais listening to Southern Rock thinking... wow this place could be great if someone just got in there and Art Directored the hell out of it...lol
Glad to see that there are others that see the potential of what could be...!
