Vivienne VaVoom will be at Tiki Oasis! I won't be doing burlesque this year (unless I have too many mai tais and do something impromptu in the Heel on Heels/Ding Dong Devils party room...) but I'm the new brand ambassador for Colorado's Montanya Rum and we're sponsoring a few events at Tiki Oasis!
On Friday a couple cutie retro pinups and I'll be serving a super yummy cocktail called the Freestyle and offering straight tastes of our Platino & Oro rums at the poolside Sip'n'Shop, 4-6pm.
Plus San Diego's Hell on Heels Burlesque and Polynesian twist punk band Ding Dong Devils have invited me to be part of their suite party! They will be serving Montanya Oro gold rum in their Headshrinkers and Ding Dong Devil cocktails, Friday 2:30-4pm and Saturday starting at 10:30pm in suite 1649.
I'll also be in the Friday night fashion show and then gogo dancing with my Burlesque As It Was pal, Dew Licious on Saturday alongside some of the bands:
Saturday 5:30 - 6:00 The Hula Girls
Saturday 7:20 – 8pm Thee Swank Bastards
(if anyone from these bands are on this list and have outfit requests- let me know! I've got a ton of costumes)
See you there!

Just a little post to let the fine folks coming to Tiki Oasis know that I have shipped a whole pallet of syrups down to San Diego for my vending booth.
- Orgeat (Almond-based syrup, for use in your Mai Tai!)
- Cinnamon (Nui Nui, Jet Pilot)
- Vanilla (great with a bit of light rum and bubbles, and for cooking!)
- Don's Mix (Donga Punch, early Zombie)
- Don's Spices #2 (Nui Nui, Opaka Raka)
- Passion Fruit Syrup (Hurricane, Cobra's Fang)
- Hibiscus Grenadine (China cocktail, Hell in the Pacific)
AND a few bottles (seriously, only a few) of my upcoming releases Ginger Syrup and Falernum!
and they'll be available for a mighty fine price, cheaper than online, so stock up! Credit cards accepted.

Pssst.... need a ticket? Here's two great options to still make it to the party
Book a room at the Crowne Plaza and you can purchase up to 4 weekend passes.
Sold out, you say? Bosh!
I have an extra room Thurs, Fri, Sat $170 clams a night.
email me at email@example.com.
First come, first to party!
And listen to Cammo- you can still volunteer and get in for free! He is fair and just and I owe him 10 bucks. And he's the one person left in the modern world that won't sell out to facebook. I respect that.
TIKI OASIS VOLUNTEERS
Every year about this time the tropical winds blow some of our volunteers off course and there are cancellations, changes and sometimes new volunteer opportunities just appear out of nowhere!
The Volunteer Hut just has new shifts available and volunteers get a free weekend pass!
TIKI OASIS! Where else can you work a few hours a day, meet everyone at the party and drink on the job! For those that remember last year, YOU NO DRINK E'NUF MAI TAI, BRAH! I think we all had fun.
Every year volunteers tell me they had even a better time volunteering because of all the cool people you meet. First come first served!
Volunteer for Tiki Oasis ONE SHIFT and get in for FREE ($50 value). All volunteers receive free admission to the Tiki Oasis event as well as a thank you gift from Tiki Oasis. Total volunteer time on average is about 5 hours.
Here's what to do:
(hey, it might seem like there's a bunch of flaming hoops to jump through, but it's worth it. With over 80 volunteers this year, we gotta make da computah' do most of the work so we can drink mo da mai tai)
here's what to do:
1. join our facebook group. that's how we communicate with all the volunteers.
2. go see the positions available on our Volunteer Schedule
(look for the tab at the bottom "AVAILABLE SHIFTS"
3. take the Volunteer survey, so we can have all your info handy:
4. And because we're down to the last week, message HukilauBrown at facebook
and let him know you've completed the

Aaaaaaw, it really looks like I am gonna miss a great one!
Well, even though I cannot be in attendance, congratulations to Otto and family for pulling off the BIG TEN of this grand festival of Tiki.
Who would have thought ten years ago that this fun get-together would get this big!
I will be hoisting one for you at the Rum Trader (with James Teitelbaum, who is in town).

I booked a shuttle from the San Diego train station to the Kings Inn tonight at 8pm. If anyone wants to share the ride, text me at 626-818-2348.
For anyone else who may be travelling by train, the shuttle company says it's $16 for one person or $5 a person for a group from the SAN train station to the three participating hotels. The shuttle number is (619)-646-8629.

Just to let everybody know, Oasis is really great this year. It's like living in a giant breathing Tiki Paradise, only better beyond your imagination. Everybody is happy all day long and carrying around mugs that slosh around with yummy-smelling liquids.
The sushi bar in the middle of the hotel is fantastic. Try the Big Kahuna Roll or the Spider Roll.
Yes, if you aren't going it really sucks.

"Yes, if you aren't going it really sucks."
Thanks for that.
Now I hope you run out of fresh mint.
Well, that might be a bit harsh.
Ya'll have fun now!
