Swizzle Sticks + Swanky Attire

WE ARE CELEBRATING RICK'S BIRTHDAY AND THERE WILL BE SURPRISES!!

Join us to play a $12 tiki poker tournament at The Plaza, a vintage hotel casino. 

For $12, we start with $5,000 in chips. The structure here is fan-freaking-tastic with 15 minute blinds and a break after the first hour. 

Blind increments are low and very similar to blinds we usually play. 25/50, 50/100, etc. WE HAVE ALL THREE POKER TABLES TO OURSELVES for this event along with dedicated cocktail service (please remember to tip your server a buck or more).

Celebrate by drinking snazzy rum cocktails while you bet away all your chips! 

Players: Tiki attire! Now is the time to bust out your Hawaiian shirts - everyone has one in the back or front of their closet, no excuses! Ladies, tropical flowers in your hair are totally appropriate! 

Tiki Bounty: a coconut, a pineapple, Tiki matchbooks, bamboo, old Hawaii postcards, orchids/plumeria, tiki mugs, an actual carved tiki, swizzle sticks, decorative straws, mini-bottles of rum/juice, tiki prints, tiki masks. Any piece of tiki kitsch is a valid bounty! We ♥ vintage but bring what you can find! 

Take home all kinds of tiki swag by knocking players out! 

BRING $12 CASH for the poker tournament, your tiki bounty in any form, and a few more bucks for valet and cocktail tips. :) 

6:45 PM Arrival to buy-in and get a seat. 

7PM Poker tournament (sharp!) 

9:30PM - 10PM End - Winners! 

The pay structure here is generous! The Plaza just wants to see our happy faces.

    Hi… I'm very angry. I signed up 5 days ago and then saw Poly's comment that there was 25. So, great I'm in along with my +1. Today we get there at 6:30 (30 min. early) and told we were alternates? Ridiculous. After making plans, purchasing some bounty items and things to wear, driving all the way downtown… Not sure why Alexia posted this meet up if Poly only intended for her group to participate? Rude.

      I got there at 6:20, hadn't bought the "greatest" of bounties...BUT, I STAYED...was able to play and Poly Schmitt was even gracious and generous enough to give me one of her bounties. Good things come to those who wait. Loving actions come to those whom are willing to accept loving actions. I LOVE this group and have not yet experience anything Negative, whatsoever...however, I AM a very loving human being. THANK YOU for the courtesy of allowing me to be a part of such a wonderful Group of People.

      Vina was wonderful and I was on the lookout for her, Becky, Char and all of the alternates as soon as seats opened up. :)

    Any RSVPs from this point on are on the alternate list. You'll be seated as players bust out during the first hour (first four blind levels). Sorry, but we're really, really full and there's already a list of six alternates.

    We have 25 players already which means top 4 spots will get paid (at the very least)! This promises to be a really exciting poker tourney!! Don't forget your Hawaiian gear and bounty!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
