These pics are great! Did anyone get a pic when the cops came to 135? I noticed some flash bulbs popping at about the time they were trying to get Bong in handcuffs...





At around 2:30am (?), the cops come into room 135 and shout "who's room is this?", to which we all stare blankly like a bunch of high schooler's that just got caught smoking in the bathroom.

After no reply from the drunken crowd, the cop says "allright, then you all must be trespassing".

At that point I raised my hand, with Mai Tai attached, and said "it's my room". They hone in on me, the DARE program dropout, and one cop asks "what's your name?" as he is staring at my name badge with "Bong" on it.

They tell us to keep it down immediatly! So the group beating on the drums and ukulele stop; the cops walk out and the music immediatly starts again; they come back in the room looking a bit annoyed and scream "I said STOP THE NOISE"; the group beating on the drums and ukulele stop; the cops walk out and the music immediatly starts again; the cops charge back in as thought Osama Bin Laden is mixing Mai Tais and scream "turn it off or it's a $500 fine!".

FU Pigs!

I thought the C. Tropics was sold out to the Oasis group? Who was complaining? The bar closed early, and someone called the cops?????

The wifey and I had a great time. The Caliente Tropics is groovy and eveybody was really nice, no bad vibes.
I was hoping that the turntables would be by the pool, but it was fun hobnobbing with all the bands by the stage (which were top notch by the way, really entertaining!).
I couldn't hear anything through the headphones so sorry if I had a couple of rough cue ups. I hope Mr. and Mrs. Pineapple liked thier "Fantastica" song.
We got some good drinks at the bar, although it was pure chaos. I got fairly sloshed quick and had fun lounging around the pool watching Crazy Al pummel people with beachballs.
I took about 150 photos and will get them posted later. Everyone was looking really authentic and perfect.
We never made it to the famous room 135, in fact we left before the Dive-In movie, we were pretty drunky and had a big Mother's Day Sunday planned with our mom's so we split.
Thanks again to Otto for inviting me to play my .25 records.

A big giant MAHALO! to everyone that put on the Tiki Oasis and helped make the wedding of Mr & Mrs Pineapple a most memorable occasion. We had a great time all around and were thrilled with the friendliness and generosity of all the wonderful folks there. First & foremost I wanna thank the wonderful Mrs Pineapple herself for even agreeing to marry me, and then indulging my kooky idea to elope to the Oasis. Thanks to Otto for throwing the best tiki party this side of...anywhere! and for letting us get hitched there. Other people, more than I can list here, deserve big shout-outs for all their kind help, powerful drinks and good wishes. Some of those are The Reverend Miss Kitty Nitro & Jeff, The Mai Kai Gents & Crazy Al, Tiki Diablo, AlnShelly, Martiki & Rebecca, Baxdog & family, PolyPop, Mig, Bong, Captain Ambience, Baby Doe, Bamboo Ben, SugarCaddyDaddy and family, Trader Pup, Hula Hula, Hukilau Brown, the truly amazing folks from Munktiki, Holden from Tiki Farm, and if I'm forgetting anyone else I sincerely apologize. We absolutely loved the beach ball barrage, too. We had an amazing trip and don't remember the last time we aere so sad to leave a place. It was much too little time spent with so many great people.

We are planning an East Coast reception party in July for Gretchen's family and would like to put together a movie for them to watch. We have about 20 minutes of mostly ceremony footage, so if anyone has more footage of the ceremony or especially any of the other events, bands, gorilla brawls, room parties, etc, they can let me borrow, I'd really appreciate it.

I posted a few pics on the archive page and will post a full page of my own soon. I can't believe a gorilla ravaged my wife!

Again, thanks to everyone for such a great weekend and for so many wonderful wedding memories.

Richard
(Tiki-bot, aka Mr Pineapple)

Tiki III was awesome!! My wife and I had a great time and meet some new tiki geeks as we are new to the "scene". Who was that J.O. walking around the pool with his shorts pulled down?? Nice to meet Summer and Kip after they stole our table next to the pool, we found out we only live about 1 mile from each other-weird!

Yes-- exactly who called the cops was quite a mystery. (I didn't witness it, I turned in just before the bust.) I don't think anybody really knows who called the cops-- unless they called themselves-- but there were murmured suspicions about management being involved in the call.

Our reservation got screwed up for the 2nd year in a row. They did quickly fix it; but putting all of this together with the atrocious bartending, there are still some kinks to work out!

Oh, and here are my pictures! Don't have time to add the good ones to the archive, so here's a link:

http://www.shutterfly.com/osi.jsp?i=67b0de21b33ead68a4e3&notag=1

That's not all of them... heh heh heh... I wonder how many mugs I can get in exchange for making sure certain pictures don't get shown!

And check out Reaper, Ozzy, and Big Boy partying at Cabazon.

I had an awesome weekend!

No need to be too repetitive, but thanks to all who made the Oasis what it is!

I did have a chat with the Tropics management, and they were very pleased with the event. And, they said they didn't call the cops; they do so only in extreme circumstances. They did say that the neighboring community is very bitchy about noise, and the police routinely patrol event sites anyway.

As for the bartending, there's no excuse for that!

The vendors were great, entertainment was top notch, and the gorilla fight was a highlight!

Congrats once again to Mr. and Mrs. Pineapple! Thanks for including us all in your nuptials.

Mig, your parents are so cool! I hope they can make it out next year too!

oh, and Bong, your wife and kids are wondering when you are coming home. Tiki Oasis is over! Go home already!

OK, here are my photos of the Oasis 3.

I am still swaying to the gentle breezes of the Palm Springs beautiful May weather.

Once again, thanks to all whom were part of this fabulous weekend.

Balmy regards,
