Looks awesome guys! Pity we couldn't join you. Been holding up the bars that last couple nights!
Way looking forward to tonight...and seeing everyone again.
Denise and I are putting together a little spread for the crawlers at Forbidden Island...and of course, there will be PIZZA at Conga Lounge. Word has it there may even be some cocktails too.

SEE YA ALL LATER!!!!

Less than one hour and we all re-converge (literally) at Forbidden Island. It's been so much fun for me to meet the Bay Area Tiki Ohana. What lovely people and it makes me remember why I enjoyed living in San Francisco years ago. Hanford gave me great insight into the Trader Vic's Palo Alto, which was different from what I was expecting, but is worth seeing if you're into Papua New Guinea carvings. Checked out Absinthe cocktail bar today (thank you, Rumrunner!) and oh my! Their cocktail menu is amazing!!! Going back to actually sample one tomorrow. But... it's not Tiki, so stay on topic, Kari.

Anyway, looking forward to another whacky time with you all tonight. Last night's party bus was made only sweeter by Woohoo Wahine's war cry cheering each and every one of us back to the hotel.

Happy Sunday wind down...off to have brunch at Tiki Tom's....

It was AWESOME seeing everyone yesterday!

Woohoo, hope you find the camera. I know first hand how that feels, having lost two(!) at the tail end of trips!

Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo to Hanford, Mai Tai, and all the other Nor-Cal Ohana who helped make this event happen. The Crawl was a Blast!!! It was so nice to see old friends and to make new ones too. We can't wait until next year's crawl

Ditto!!! And also a big thanks to Smoke Tiki, Notch, Forbidden Island, Conga Lounge, Kona Club, and Trader Vics Eville and Palo Alto. The Raffle at Kona Club was gracious, and winning the Orchids R-1 headhunter was extra sweet.

TV Emeryville especially went way above and beyond welcoming everyone with 75th anniversary blinky pins and sending us off with parting gifts (a fog cutter mug, parrot on a stick, and 75th anniversary matches all wrapped up in TV wrapping paper)


Swag I managed to accumulate

Congratulations to Hanford and Mai Tai in producing another wonderful crawl!! Servanne and Jon at Trader Vics said you both were wonderful to work with and look forward to future partnerships with the two of you. I know how much work you both did for this. You both are exclusively responsible for a perfect crawl.

The crawl lives because of you two and it was a BLAST! I appreciate you both and know everyone on the crawl does as well. Look forward to 2010!!
