No, it is on the corner of 5th and F st. Across the street from Croce's Jazz Bar and restaurant. I used to play in the salsa band that is performing at Croce's that night.

Take it from me, this is downtown in every sense of the word--parking is a be-otch and expensive. There is valet parking in front of Mister Tiki but depending on what's happening downtown that night, it can be $$$

BEST WAY TO GET THERE:
If you are coming south on the I-5 freeway, as you pass the SD airport, take the 1st St. exit. Stay in the left exit lane which will exit onto Cedar St. Turn RIGHT on 6th Ave. Go into downtown and turn LEFT on G Street (east). Then turn LEFT on 5th Ave. (1-way heading North). Mister Tiki will be on your RIGHT on the corner of 5th and F Stree.

If you are coming from east of downtown, take Highway 94 West all the way into downtown. It actually turns into F Street and Mister Tiki will be on your Left side on the corner.

I'd love to make the trip back to my all time favorite city(used to live in P.B. and La Jolla several yrs ago)if I could crash on someone's floor--wallet is still too thin from two wks. in a row trips to Palm Springs.
It's so cool that there will now be a place for our ohana in downtown S.D. It's perhaps the best transformation that a city has ever done for its downtown core. Another one of my favorite watering holes is "The Bitter End." Such yummy martinis! Would anyone also be interested in going to a ballgame at the new stadium?(that is of course, if the Pads are in town that weekend)~~Cousin Dave

I'd like to go, it sounds like great fun! However -- according to my calendar, that's the same day Team Pineapple touches down in LA after seven days of biking (!!!) for the AIDS LifeCycle. I'd really, really like to be there to celebrate their finish -- hopefully the timing will work out so I can do both???

Hey Pineapples -- what are the latest details on the LA end of the LifeCycle ride?

wow - I can't believe you remembered! Thanks for keeping up with us. We do inded roll/limp/ get sagged into LA the 12th. The closing ceremonies are at Dodgers Stadium and we are staying in West Hollywood. We'd LOVE to see your happy face when we get in, the closing ceremony is late though, 6 pm, I think. and it's a looooong riding day, (hence the possible sag...) So I'm not sure exactly how the coordination will work??

hmmmm, we are staying in town, (with Mom!) until Monday morning, so we wouldn't be the least bit offended if you hooked up with us on Sunday for some food and a trader vic's mai tai (ohhhh the gazelllllle) We'll miss the Tiki Ti, AGAIN, but I hear it's closed anyway. Mail us and let us know what you decide can't wait to see some SoCal folks along the way! I may post a route map in Beyond Tiki, of campsites, so if anyone is along the route they can come out and wave to us!

MM--
What time/time frame are we talking about here? Meeting for dinner, or just drinks at the bar? Z-Girl and I might be able to make it for drinks, but not for dinner, as we'd be heading out from Long Beach at about 6:00 & probably wouldn't hit SD til 8:30 at the earliest...

We'll really try nonetheless, as my summer vacation starts that day (I love being a teacher...), and I think breaking in a new bar is an excellent way to kick it off right!

Ran - we might take you up on that couch offer if no one else has dibs...

Mister Tiki opens at 5:30 PM. I was thinking that 6:00 PM (reservation time updated to reflect the restaurant's availabiity) might be a good time for a dinner reservation. That time will allow most people to get there without an unreasonable rush after their day's activities. Anyone arriving later will still have plenty of time to join us for drinks afterward. If anyone has different thoughts, please let me know ASAP.

Also, please keep in mind that none of this information is set in stone. They are not officially taking reservations yet. However, the manager did explicitly say that he believed there would be no problem with our date/time. I will post solid info as soon as it is available.

Also, parking definitely can be expensive and painful in the Gaslamp area. I can volunteer our house as a meeting spot for anyone that wants to carpool (we live about 15 minutes from downtown). If you arrive early enough, I'll be mixing pre-dinner cocktails.

I will drive the van so I can take 7 people in case anyone wants to carpool. How late does the parking lot stay open at Horton Plaza. Is there a Petco Park game that night?

Uh oh, I just realized that the 12th is the same weekend as the San Diego Real Ale Festival @ the Carlsbad Pizza Port. I'm either going to have to go to the RAF on Friday or arrive @ Mr. Tiki already 1/2 plowed...

I think Sunday at Trader Vic's sounds like the best way to go for meeting up with the Pineapple Clan.

I think I'd like to make a weekend of San Diego, though. I've wanted to have dinner at the Islands restaurant at the Hanelei for some time now, so I think I'll go down on Friday & do that, and then maybe I'll finally do my spa day at Spa Tiki during the day Saturday before Mr. Tiki. Anyone care to join me?

Also, are there any cool hotels to stay in within stumbling distance of Mr. Tiki?

Huma2,

If you're looking for a budget type hotel, there is a real cool european style hotel in the Little Italy district of downtown called La Pensione. Here is their website so you can take a closer look:
http://www.lapensionehotel.com.
Both Foder's and Frommer's rate it the best budget hotel in San Diego. Look forward to seeing you and the gang on 6/12.~~Cousin Dave
