Please, for this crawl, if I haven't met you, introduce yourself. I was a little ticked when I found out Marcus Thorn (Australia) was at F.I. same night I was there and I never met him. So, if I haven't met you, don't be shy. I'll do the best I can to make the rounds. Bring it on, bring it on.

That's too bad that you didn't meet Marcus! Sparky and I were so pleased to have met him, his lovely wife and some of their friends at Viva Las Vegas, and then we got to see them again at the FI bash - we adored them all. :D

I'll do my very best to say hello to everyone

Yes, I agree with Jungle Trader! Don't be shy, go around introducing yourselves to folks. We'll have nametags available, too -- wearing a nametag with your Tiki Central name on it will be a great ice breaker for you. I'll be wearing one, too!

I've told this story before, so my apologies if you've already heard it:

In early 2003, I flew down all by my lonesome from Seattle to attend the Tiki Crawl. The first meeting place was Martiki's home bar at the time, the Foggy Grotto. I didn't know anybody who was going to be at the crawl, and I knew they all knew each other -- I was sure I was going to feel like an outsider. I felt like I was crashing a party I wasn't supposed to be at. I was so shy and nervous, I sat in the park across the street from Martiki's place for a looooong time, trying to build up the courage to ring the buzzer. I sincerely almost turned around and left without going in, despite it being the whole point of my trip.

Well, that would have been silly.

I rang the buzzer, went inside, and had the time of my life. That night, I met so many people who have become my great friends -- Martiki, Boo Loo, thejab, Mr. Smiley, Tiki Mama, Melintur, Tiki Vixen, mig, Floratina, Sugar Caddy Daddy, Polynesian Pop, and so many more. Even more importantly, I learned that anywhere I go, I'm going to meet new tiki people who are warm, welcoming and wonderful.

So, don't be shy, dangit! Wear your nametag, say hello, and don't be afraid. Yes, we're all pretty tight with each other, but we're always adding to our wonderful circle of friends, and you'll be warmly welcomed into conversations.

For those coming in from out of town, here's a guide to the weather forecast:

Thursday, Palo Alto: that day the high will be about 90, but it will have cooled down a smidge by the time we meet up at the Sculpture Garden. The tikis are in a shady area, so it should be nice.

Friday, San Francisco: high of 77, low of 65 -- it's significantly cooler in the city, but it looks like it still might be warm enough to leave your jacket at home. Moving the crawl to the summer instead of early spring is paying off!

Saturday, East Bay: high of 82, low of 63 -- it should be a gorgeous day. At the Emeryville Trader Vic's, they're reserving the back room for us, which includes an outdoor patio with a gorgeous view of the bay. Last time I was out on that patio, I about froze to death, this year will be much more comfortable.

Sunday, Alameda: forecast calls for 80 degrees -- not too hot for the Play-Doh, not too cold to be out on the patio.

Apparently I bought one too many tickets for Saturday's Tiki Bus -- who needs one? PM me if you're interested.

Aloha,
Is anyone from Alameda driving to Trader Vic's on Saturday? If so, can I hitch a ride? I'm not so sure I'll be in driving condition at the end of the night and am planning to cab it home, but I don't want my car to be stuck at Vic's.
Mahalo,
JenTiki

Friday had been designated a "Spare the Air" day in the SF Bay area.

What does this have to do with the crawl?

It means FREE Bus and Bart rides all day.

From the Air Quality folks:
Tomorrow, Friday, July 21, is a Spare the Air Day in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ground-level ozone air pollution is forecast to exceed 100 AQI (Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups) tomorrow.

The Air District, MTC, buses, ferries, Caltrain and BART are offering FREE commutes all day on this sixth "Spare the Air" weekday! For details, go to
http://www.511.org. This is the final budgeted Free Fare Day of the summer!

Sadly, I won't be able to make the crawl at all this year.
I've moved yet AGAIN & have never been so broke in my whole life.
This would've been my fifth year in a row & I'm really bummed.
Have a great time & please hoist one for me!

I am on my way to Forbidden Island in 1/2 hour! Damn the Liver, full speed ahead. See, it's spare the air day, not spare my liver day. I wasn't supposed to live this long anyway. So, in a sense, I'm playing with house money. Double down!

Mr. Contrarian,
