I heard a rumor that there may not be a Kon this year.
There will be, however, a Tiki Happy Hour at 4:30 on the
third Tuesday of each month at the Teardrop Lounge:
1015 NW Everett St. in Portland's Pearl District.

I bet someone there may have a better idea of what's going on.

Another place for more info would be a subscription to the Northwest Territory Tiki Mailing List at:
http://nwtiki.com/mailman/listinfo/nwterritorymailinglist_nwtiki.com

(If in case, something does happen this year, but ends up being a double-secret, invitation-only event.)

Finally, if last year's organizers have other obligations this year,
that's not to say someone else couldn't decide to put something together.

thanks for the information. I'll subscribe to that list.

Hope they do one this year. I have wanted to go for the last couple, but haven't been able to get the time. Guess if nothing else,as you suggested, an informal weekend at that cool retro motel up there, can't recall its name, and an evening at the Alibi.

I've also heard rumblings of no Tiki Kon this summer, though nothing official. BTW, popped in for a quick drink at the innaugural Tiki Tuesday at Teardrop Lounge. I had a "Nui Nui" and the wife a "Lei Lani Volcano"...good stuff! Looking forward to the next one.

The Palms? (Across the street from the Alibi), or the Jupiter/Doug Fir? (Last year's location)
In any case, it sounds like the beginning of a plan for something to happen this year.

I just signed up for the NWTT mailing list. Tiki A. Moaikingbird & I were starting to plan our 2nd annual world tiki tour with Tiki Kon VI as its destination and we'd be very disappointed if it didn't happen this year.

I must have been thinking of the Jupiter. Although after looking at the website, It isn't as mid-century modern as I had thought it was. I don't know Portland that well, despite living in Oregon for 20 years now, but there must be some flea bag retro motel up there someplace. In any case, if nothing happens with Tiki Kon VI, a little informal gathering would be nice.

BTW... What is the name of that Tiki store up there? I went there last year and picked up a couple things. Hope they have been able to stay open.

I think you're referring to the Freaky Tiki Retro Deck in Beaverton. Last I heard they were still open...I saw a small ad from them in a local paper a month or so ago.

The Palms is definitely that...
(and conveniently located near the Alibi.)

Well, It certainly looks like there is motivation to make some kind of event happen,
although perhaps not a full-blown Kon.

If there is some sort of event, I hope a home bar tour is on the agenda.
