Sorry to be so late hopping in on all this- first of all, Mike (my fiancÚ) and I will be able to make it that weekend. So that's two more for the count

Secondly, I believe Honolulu closes down at 11pm on Saturdays, and I'd definitely recommend seeing if they take reservations. Also I don't know the hours on Politiki, as I've never been there, but I've heard it can get crowded on weekends, so we ought to look into that too.

As for getting around on metro-

I've included some details and schedules I was able to find online

***If folks are serious about using metro- someone should double check this***

Metro system map-
http://www.wmata.com/metrorail/systemmap.cfm


As for fares, we'd have to check station to station, weekends are non-peak hours. The easiest answer can be the "Metrorail $5 One-Day Pass the web page says it's available from the farecard machines in all stations.


HONOLULU by metro

The metro system trip guide is showing Huntington Ave. Station (end of the yellow line) as the closest station. from there, you walk .5 mile NW to Honolulu (5634 Telegraph Road)

hours of operation- The station guide for Huntington http://www.wmata.com/metrorail/Stations/station.cfm?station=50 says last train out is 1:34 am so that would certainly work. Trains would be running about every 20 minutes around 11pm according to the weekend ride guide PDF- (see Sat yellow line leaving Huntington- http://www.wmata.com/timetables/rail/rail_weekend.pdf)


POLITIKI

This is a bit more complicated. The metro ride guide wants to give all kinds of bus directions which doesn't make sense considering you have the Eastern Market station at the southeast corner Penn. Ave. & 7th St. SE.

We're pretty sure it's gotta be walking distance to Capital South or Eastern Market (orange and blue lines) I'm not sure which is closer- we'll have to dig out some maps and take a look at that. It's just a few blocks up behind the capital (between 3rd and 4th- at 319 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) When checking this make sure you're looking at SOUTH EAST, on Pennsylvania Ave. DC is notorious for loosing non-locals between the SE, NE, SW, and NWs.

At worst case scenario, using Eastern Market metro (SE corner Penn. Ave. & 7th St. SE), last train out on a Sat night would still be after one AM depending on which direction you were going (Last train departs: Addison Road/New Carrollton-2:17 a.m. Franconia-Springfield/Vienna-Fairfax-1:53 p.m.) Again, see the weekend ride guide PDF- http://www.wmata.com/timetables/rail/rail_weekend.pdf Eastern Market or Capital South would be on the orange and blue lines between L'Enfant Plaza and Stadium Armory stops (specific times not listed, assumedly since the stations in between are so close together.)

See- http://www.wmata.com/metrorail/Stations/station.cfm?station=60 ***Keep in mind that that's orange and blue lines, so if you need to transfer to the another line, you'll need to calculate that in too!***



If people are coming in from out of town, or won't be up to driving should be also be thinking about hotels? This could get very complicated, very quickly!

Sabina,

You're telling me it can get complicated fast! Wow - thanks for the in-depth research on the mass transit! I will get myself in gear and start doing in depth research on the locales this week - arrange for reservations with Honolulu and call Politiki and see what their deal is with hours and all...hotels are another thing all together...

I'll keep everyone informed!

THOSE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING PLEASE E-MAIL ME YOUR HEADCOUNT AND WE CAN BEGIN COMMUNICATING THE DETAIL VIA E-MAIL...

Hey all,
As a voice from Delaware, I was wondering how the plans for this shin-digg was going? Sounds like a blast. And seeing how the closest thing we have to a tiki bar around here is the chain Kahunaville, we'd love to attend.
Thanks,
Ken and Mercy

I'm going offine pretty much as of now, but Mike and I *are* planning on being there tonight at 8. If other folks ditch/postpone that's perfectly fine, we can always get together another time.

Finally getting time to reply ...

Yes, the Honolulu / Poli-tiki event was definitely much fun and a success - thanks to John for organizing the event, and everyone else for making an appearance. Life is so much better now that I am assured that there are fellow tiki appreciators nearby, and it will be nice to associate faces with tiki usernames.

As for a potential followup ..... D.C.'s Arena Stage is presenting 'South Pacific' from December 6 through February 2.

Vern
