After about 4+ months of not sleeping to pull this event together Otto and I are going to focus on all the amazing wonderful aspects of Tiki Oasis! Would love to hear what you LOVED about the event.... What are you looking forward to next year? Who did you meet... wish you met? Did you volunteer? Wanna do it again? Did you check out the car show? The art show? Which vendor surprised you? Which symposium was a stand out? Didn't you love the Los Straitjacket go go dancers? ha ha ha! We do appreciate feedback about the weekend but right now we are focusing on just basking in the memories of that the event that truly is a labor o love to pull off!

Special thanks to our crew: Jim Giddings (Stage Manager), Bob (Sound), Ikabod (Volunteers), Mateo (TO Management), Casey and Victor (Vendors), Dr Shocker (Security), Belle (Registration), Cammo (Symposiums), Patrick (AV), El Roy Art (Gallery), Bill, Rob and John (Car Show), Crystal Cove (Video), Charlie and Glen (Photos), Christi (Sponsorship), Aaron at Tidbit (Website), Lee Joseph (PR), John and Sonia (Kids Room), MP and Cobain and Reesenik (Decor), Chris and Karen (Room Parties), Nick (Shuttle), Jerry (Photo booth), Mark Balanky (Bank Photos), Lenise and Ben from WiLDCOAST, Travis (Baby Doe helper) oh a TON of other folks including our 90 volunteers who are always the glue that hold this Tiki Oasis community together! Of course no thank you is complete without thanking our KIDS Vander and Dashiell who look forward to Tiki Oasis every year and help us to plan and organize the event (mini-producers in the making!)

You asked what we liked. Here it is what I liked. A TON of stuff. LOVED Big Sandy and Los Straightjackets!! Kitten on the Keys was hilarious, awesome. The retro, modern tiki, and pop artwork in all was amazing. The vintage fabric for sale took my breath away (that God they're in SF so I can visit when I have $$). Swanky's Mai Kai Symposium was AMAZING.

Seeing a bunch of friends and making some new ones. Big room parties and smaller more intimate ones with far away friends. The Pop up Band in the Atrium (yes, they shouldn't have done it at 1am, but they were really good. And the Atrium had FANTASTIC acoustics). Dancing on chairs in the Room parties to the AWESOME bands. Loved the FI Room Parties. Chum blew the roof off the house. The car show was FUN with the Hula Girls playing and Crazy Al Mcing and interviewing.

The rum, and making the best of slight glitches. Like when the fire alarm went off, once we established there was no fire, a drinking game spontaneously occurred chanting to the rhythm of the alarm. The Ohana that positively rose to the occasion when glitches did occur. No issues, everyone just all helped, made sure everyone was okay, and moved on. Awesome vibe and people. Just happy and good.

Getting kicked off the pool balcony Sunday night at the drink all of the rest of the booze gathering because we were having too much fun. Think that our excitement in greeting Costco Shawn did it. Partying with Don Tiki Sunday night with about 50 other people in the empty Arctic bungalow - kind of hilarious. Staying up until 5 am Saturday morning and talking with friends by the hot tub. The vendors had so many great things that it was a plethora of goods. The mustaches, sombreros, and masks were hilarious. The mustache contest....well geez, some of those had a life of their own. Gorgeous circle skirts and tons of tropical vintage fashion in abundance. It was a beautiful overload in eye candy. And as always seeing all of the beautiful vintage fashions and gathering in the name of Ohana was fantastic. Generally, just the happy positive vibe the event creates. Finally, sharing with newcomers how the event came to be, the history of the Tiki and mid-century revival and how Otto and Hukilau Brown were at the forefront of it. Those were just a few of the things I liked.

Baby Doe and Otto, I know how hard you both work on this event ALL YEAR. I know that the 4 months prior to the event are often 20 hour work days - including weekends. I know that you give up sleep to get it done and your kids are very patient while you do the work. It's easy to criticize, but sometimes it's fun just to go with it and enjoy things. Maholo to you both!!! You guys are amazing. You both ROCK!! Thank you.

Thanks Coco Loco - it is cool to see what stood out to you at the event!

Yes the event takes a year to plan on top of our full time jobs, two kids and all our other side projects but it is worth it to know folks love it cause we do!!

Telling friends back home how much fun we had only gets me more excited for next year. Working on 3 couples to make the Minnesota to San Diego run next year!!!

One thing I didnt mention that we loved was the car show! Really great rigs. We especially liked the cars with the super plush interiors that looked like they had mod living rooms in their back seats! Awesome job, thanks again.

Does anyone know who the Italian surf band at the one room party was? the Bradipos IV?



They are called Surfer Joe's Boss Combo. They played Thursday night at Bali Hai too.

Hula is not a sexual dance, Burlesque is by far. It's sole intent is to stir sexual urges. Burlesque has never been a family event. An analogy would be viewing nude art vs. pornography, both have the same subjects but convey different messages. Not suggesting that Oasis become adults only (that could be disastrous), simply suggesting that the kids not allowed front and center for the sexually arousing strip shows. It's a buzz kill.

Thanks for allowing me to voice my opinion that I believe is shared by many.

Respectfully,
Darilyn



Hula when presented in America to visitors to Tiki bars is definitely an overt sexual innuendo. Just check out the Mai Kai who do a traditional Tiki bar show that has actually been updated to be more traditional Hawaiian but still the original "American" intent is intact
Granted, the women do not undress but they wear bikini tops and dance suggestively and it is for the visual entertainment of the males in the audience.
It's not high art like an opera or a waltz nor is it to convey religious traditions of the Hawaiian people, etc etc

So for our discussion, I would say hula is a sexual dance

That said, we have moved the Burlesque to be as late as possible in the evening. We have a 10pm curfew so if the kids stay up til 9 or 10 they are going to see Burlesque. Next year we will move some of the Burlesque indoors after hours but not all of it. Parents beware!

No! Please don't give me your first born. I am honored, but I already have two kids and can barely keep up with them as it is!
