That place always skeeved me out. I think I'll take a pass. I definitely will be doing the flea market.
BTW, nice username, you sound like you come from my neck of the woods.

Dawn,here is a little more info on Club Paradise... unfortunately it is a dump...it has some bamboo and thatch but there ain't any tikis... and the drinks are not all that good... but it is right in your neighborhood, so by all means feel free to check it out for yourself.
In regards to more cool Exotica 2003 happenings...Be sure to stop by Trader Daves at The DuPage County Annual All-Nite Flea Market where they will be offering a bevy of Tiki, 50's Modern furnishings,loads of Aloha Shirts and lots of other groovy stuff.

Guess who just found a roundtrip ticket for NOT the $571 that was being being asked before, but rather a VERY affordable $168! So I'm coming too!! YAAAY!! And school will have started that Monday...and I'll need a sub for Friday afternoon. bad bad bad.

Any couples that wanna elope to Chicago Exoticafest like at Oasis, so I can say I'm going to a wedding in Chicago??

I'm such a dedicated teacher...
My revenge for not getting to go to Hukilau because of my 25 bratty students in Spain!!

Aloha Exotica peeps!

Captain Dan here with an urgent dispatch from the balmy, palm-lined middle coast, where your stewardesses and bus crew are working feverishly to prepare your bus for your Exotica weekend voyage! Avast ye, it is nearly T-Minus one week before we cast away the lines and set sail for exotic adventure!

I'm sounding General Quarters, because it is LAST CALL LAST CALL LAST CALL for the FRIDAY BUS!

The good folks who are hosting the Cocktails at the Kona Kai event have extended the deadline to get your tickets for their event (a destination on Friday's route) to this Friday the 15th, so it's not too late to get your Friday bus tix, AND your Kona Kai tix if you haven't already!

Get your bus ticket:
http://ddemichele.home.mindspring.com/Detail%20Fri.htm
Then get the Kona Kai ticket if you haven't already, by sending a paypal payment to:
boutiki@pegboardchicago.com
--- Do it today!

Here's why you should get on the tiki bus:
http://ddemichele.home.mindspring.com/The%20Deal.htm

The Friday night ride is gonna be a great one. We're gonna kick it all off with a private reception for you, and then the fun really begins! Stay tuned for more info on what surprises are in store.

In the mean time, get your tix before Friday. This is not a drill!

Mahalo,
-Cpt. Dan

D'oh!

Tikivixen's mom has fallen ill, so it looks like we won't be making it to Exotica.

HOWEVER, I would still like to go if I can find someone to roadtrip with me.....if you can get to San Francisco for departure this Sunday or Monday, send me a private message asap!

--cindy

ps -- if I can't go, can I get a refund on my Kona Kai ticket?

I wish we could go, I'll miss you guys and gals but looks like I'll be attending to business concerns, and my father has had two serious health events in two weeks (minor strokes), so I'll be watching that closely for about six weeks.. But we will definitely see you all at Hukilau and sooner at Omnilau!

Aloha from America's Desert Playground!

For you Exotica 2003 participants, be on the lookout for two Caliente tropics Resort giveaways!

Here's one of the giveaways:
Three Nights in the Tahitian Lanai, plus two, 1-Hour Spa Treatments in the tropics RETREAT, plus one Limited First Edition, gold Caliente tropics Resort Tiki Mug designed and manufactured by Tiki Farm (only 75 gold ones made of the rare Palm Springs, SA mugs). We only have six of these left and the blue ones (75 of those) are long gone.

Wish I could be there!

Don't just THINK out of the box......get OUT of the box!!

Mahalo!

I'm SO bummed, both that Tikivixen's mom's not well and that you two great gals can't both be in Chicago! Crossing my fingers, Cindy, that you can find a buddy for the road!

I am now unable to go to Exotica due to scheduling problems. Could someone please pick me up one Exotica 2003 Muntiki glass from the Kona Kai. E-mail me at josephscotthall@yahoo.com and I can send you money before you leave or pay you when you get back.

Thanks!

Scotty

Hi there,

I just introduced myself in the new members thread.

My husband and I are so excited for Friday night. Urban exploration is so much fun to begin with, tiki makes it so much more.
I will be there with our camera in tow. Please smile and wave, I will post the pictures up in the forum for all to enjoy.

Sally
