Aloha & WoooHooo! I've done a little homework and here's the info I have for you regarding accommodations. Humphries requires a two night minimum for the weekend and their room availability is very limited to rooms that are really pricey for that weekend. BUT...... The Best Western Island Palms Hotel (which is right next door to Humphries and within walking distance to The Bali Hai) has availability. If you are interested in staying their I reserved a Block of rooms at the rate of $175 for the night of November 2. Call 1-800-922-2336 to reserve your room. To get this rate mention Tiki Magazine Rate. This Special Rate will not be in their computer system until tomorrow afternoon. Feel free to PM me if you have any ?'s Mahalo!!



The Best Western Island Palms is .6 miles away from the Bali Hai (2 minutes to be exact)

Friends house in Pacific Beach 5 miles away and free.
if I'm too drunk to drive, the bed of my truck, and a pillow and blanket,
also free.
I'm cheaper than a broke musician, unfortunetly.

Jeff(bigtikidude)
p.s.
is there anything else going on in San Deigo that weekend?
Sat. or Sun.

I say get a room were you can afford it....Being there is what counts! Seeing the Tikiyaki Orchestra perform LIVE will be worth the entire evening! I like the idea of being able to stumble out of the Bali Hai across the parking lot to my room...It's a few bucks more, but I don't have to worry about driving and the possible consequences... So far I know of 3-4 rooms booked at Humphries and a couple more at the Island Palms right next door.

I agree. I just posted some options for peeps who wanted to keep their stay a little more affordable. I'd stayt at Humphreys in a heartbeat if it was more affordable for me. I love that place.


I wanted to stay at the Pearl, but alas, too expensive.

Nick,

An art show in San Diego with the only local artist being Bosko?

What about Clysdalle and Tikidav and Mieko?

Just throwing out the names of a couple of amazing folks in the SD area. There are a ton more.

Sounds like it might be a fun event though.






There are quite a few amazing choppers, just in our group here in SD. Seems a shame, indeed to "narrow the field" at the expense of these other great local choppers being edged out by a guy who's tikis all look pretty similair. My wife even mentioned that when we ate at Mr Tiki. She said "You can sure tell the same guy did all of these tikis!"



Sorry Nick to get off topic but I have to get somthing off my chest.

These student carvers are great and developing into awesome carvers, but they are not in the same league as BOSKO! Period, end of discussion. Who is Bosko? Oh, just some guy who helped start the tiki carving / mug revival! Please realize that if it wasn't for Bosko doing tikis since the "80's ,we (yes I include myself 100% ) probably wouldn't be "chopping" them today .
