Also, TOMORROW (Thursday), please join us for a benefit for a very special member of the TC Ohana and a very dear friend, Marie King. Marie is the bar manager at the one and only Don the Beachcomber in Huntington Beach, CA, and was recently in a very severe auto accident that nearly cost her her life. We're getting everyone together to try and raise some money and make things a little bit easier for Marie as she heals. We'll have a raffle, silent auction with many excellent tiki collectibles, and the surf sounds of the TommorrowMen and Meshugga Beach Party. No cover! Proceeds from raffle, auction and a special, that one night only Marie Cocktail will be donated to her. Please come by! More info at: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=114165148615725&ref=ts
