12PM - The show at the Holiday Inn is over, but not the night! "Bikini Bob's" next to the Holiday Inn is becoming "Tiki Bob's" for the night! Complete with hula dancers, a piggy or two that's cooked all night, decorations and exotica music! This is the place to go if you don't get in the Holiday Inn show, and after the show! The stage becomes ours for impromptu performances by various Polynesian maniacs. We'll have a wonderful luau all night long!
