Expo 2019 theme and logo reveal

edited 17 Feb in Events

It's time to announce our theme and logo: It's a tiki party!

A big thank-you to Elyse Maxwell for creating this event logo.

Tiki culture in the United States began in 1933 with the opening of Don's Beachcomber, later changed to Don the Beachcomber, a Polynesian-themed bar and restaurant in Hollywood. [..] Although inspired in part by tiki carvings and mythology, the connection is loose and stylized, being an American form and not a Polynesian fine art form. [Wikipedia]

You've never been more likely to get lei'd at an Icrontic event. [groan]

if you're planning an event or prize, bonus points for tying into the theme. :biggrin:

    What about a caramel (or whatever else goes with rum) rum flavored liquid nitrogen ice cream making session?

    Trying to creatively put liquor into an event does not magically nullify the No Liquor rule.

    Have a Rum tasting / Rum infusing / Rum enema session at any other event. No Liquor at Expo.

    I seem to recall there being leeway made for certain things, but I could be misremembering.

    Not trying to sneak anything in, here. I'm actually not a big fan of rum, myself. I've had the thought to pitch LN2 ice cream before, but the adult twist was something extra.

    Can we do rum-flavored barrel tasting?

    There is no rules against eating barrels, no matter the flavor.

    If there aren't tiki mugs in the prize pool this year I'm gonna be a little disappointed

    I think you misspelled "WAIKIKI" at the bottom there.

    Barrel tasting, eh? This won't be the first Icrontic event where people put wood in their mouths.
