Holy crap! Talk about out of the loop. I can't believe there are 8 pages of posts about this thing! Thanks for everyone who emailed me to make sure I heard about it (because, yes, I am sadly out of the loop...) Anyway, I will see you all there! I can't even imagine how surreal it will be to have this all go down in my hometown!

It's taken Oaktiki and I a little time to get into town and settled, but we've got a late addition for tomarrow's schedule for those who can- we have room for something small- not a huge get together.

Some of you may have heard rumours to this effect through the grapevine- that's because we originally started with the Seattle crowd since they showed us such a great time, but it looks like some of them won't make it, so we have some room.

As folks are getting into town, if you're going to be in downtown (West End) Vancouver between 12:30 and 2:30ish we're going to try to do a welcoming meet and greet. Afterwards, we figure we'd all head over to the 3:30 get together at Funhauser.

We don't have room for more than a few folks, but if you would like to stop by we'd love to have you over.

Parking is going to be weird too- it's a huge weekend, but we know where you might be able to find a space. Public transit may be a better option.

Anyhow, if this sounds up your alley, drop me a PM and I'll get directions etc to you later tonight.

Yay!!! heather!!! see you soon!

I impaled my finger last night while trying to put out a corncob for the squirrels. There's a long 6" spiked nail on the top of the Squirrel Table that went piercing through my skin in two places. No ER trip was required but at first I couldn't get my finger off the nail (which would have prevented me from attending). I can hear it now, Rodeo: "Where's exoticat?" Dogbytes: "She's stuck on a nail in the back yard".

So I'll be there sporting a bandaid with fez wearing monkeys (it's that Smoking Monkey from Archie McPhee) except they're smiling not smoking which I prefer when it comes to open wounds. Has anyone ever seen any Tiki Bandaids?

Hi everyone, Dan here from Taboo Tiki. Looking forward to meeting some of you at Funhauser and the Waldorf. Should be a good show! I wish we had some time to throw in a few of our Tiki's at Raglan's but there's just not enough time these days. Did manage to get a couple of our Limited Edition framed tributes to the Waldorf done though. If you are interested, these will be available at the event. Hope to see you there!

Just got back in from the Waldorf (yeah, we 'old folks' made an early night of it, since we need to be up early tomarrow).

All I can say is Vancouver has outdone itself! This was worth every mile/km from MD, every bit of nonsense, and every bit of pushing onward instead of being 'responsible grown ups' and heading home.

Today was just fantastic, and it's all due to the Tikiphiles from far and near who put all the effort that went into making today so wonderful; from the early get together at our place (with rum), to Funhauser- with Rum and Tikis galore, (and all the AMAZING artists and their goodies! So great to meet those responsible for all that amazing work!), to Raglands, who bore up under the strain of MANY hungry and oh, so thirsty Tikiphiles, to the Waldorf- which defies all words!, and on to the bands themselves!

Yes, we got to explore the inner depths of the Waldorf's many rooms- including the downstairs. MANY pictures to follow from many different folks I hope!

I personally, think the Waldorf should be uttered among the great Tiki names- not only such an extensive layout, but the condition it's in- un-updated- truely a time capsule. The mural in the downstairs room alone is truely a treasure beyond compare!

I have two words for Vancouverites- annual event.

If you build it, they will come! The hospitality by local Tikiphiles and the venue are soooo worth the trip!

MAHALO!

"Holy Crap! It's a Tiki Event in Vancouver 2005" doesn't even begin to dscribe it all! nearly nonstop fun fun fun! extreme thanks to all the Canadians who welcomed us over the border to run nuts through their town.

Funhauser's TC Private Party, complete with perfectly prepared tropical drinks, cuban rum for sipping and snacks ~ made it an excellent backdrop to meet and greet and shop! meeting the artists was an incredible part of the buying experience. i halfway expected that Pepe le Tiki would turn away Oprah if she had shown up during our soiree!

we took over Raglan's ~ there was one cook and 2 waitresses (who also made the drinks!) cheers to them for feeding and keeping the booze flowing!

Waldorf! Waldorf! Waldorf! wow. just WOW!! as we descended the spiral stairs, the clocks moved backwards and we were transported to a magical time, where bamboo, rattan, faux fish tanks and murals ruled the night. swank beyond belief.

i met so many new people, TC and non TC alike.. all for the love o tiki!

WoW!! what a great time we had! Our neighbors to the north are great hosts and made this a terrific weekend.
On our way out of town we stopped by Funhauser, picked up a few items for our home, and received directions to the nearest gov. liquor store so we could procure some Havana Club rum to smuggle over the border. Since this is a public forum I can't say if we were successful or not, but
some of the best mojitos in the world are being sipped in West Seattle....

My Fellow Americans ~ you can claim a refund for goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) you paid on eligible goods and short-term accommodation while visiting Canada.

there's a bunch of
rules

but basically, if you spent over 200$CAN, and you have original receipts, fill out the forms in the link above, and get back 7% by mail.
