Elvgren meets Elvis

Recently a good friend of ours, Myrna Hansen, B movie actress and more famously Gil Elvgren's favorite and most frequent pinup model (I interviewed her for Outre magazine  a few years ago) popped by the Thrillpad for a visit, along with her son Dwan and his lovely wife Sharon. We went out for dim sum and then swung by Forbidden Island, where the following night, I hosted the annual ELVIS D-DAY TIKI PARTY, another festive tribute to The King, on the 33rd anniversary of his "disappearance," featuring not only the usual grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but also a customized peanut butter and banana cocktail! The photos tell the story. Now I'm off to host Movie Nite at Tiki Oasis 10. Aloha.
