You sure do rock, Monkeyman! Thanks so much!!!

I too would find a San Diego trip most entertaining. Besides, I've never been there.

If the San Diego thing happens I would love to have the TC Ohana over to my home bar. I'll keep watching this thread and see how it developes. Any of the other S.D. tikiphiles wanna get a tour going?

WooHooo! San Diego is a Tiki-rrific place to spend New Years. I just became a Travel Agent. Let me know if I can help make anyone's New Years Eve Vacation Dreams come True

I might just be inclined to do that, Matt! I'll keep an eye out as well.

I emailed the management at the Caliente Tropics this morning and indicated we were interested in a group rate for new years. I told him that the dates would most likely be Friday (12/30) and Saturday (12/31).



May I suggest Saturday (12/31) and Sunday (1/1) nights instead since most folks have Monday the 2nd. off? This makes more sense for us who will be traveling from afar becuase flying on the Friday before New Years weekend will be expensive. I would rather fly down on Saturday.

Last year we did New Year's Eve & New Year's Day -- that way, you aren't faced with the race against the 11 a.m. checkout on very little sleep & a possible hangover. Also, for those superstitious types, the first day of the year was spent relaxing among friends in a tiki landscape, not a bad way to set the tone for the year.

I will inquire about availability for both scenarios. Is January 2nd a definite day off for everyone? Is that one of those holidays that migrates to the next closest work day?

Are you gonna have that elevator done in time? Otherwise we'll need some strong backs to carry me up and down the hill.

I don't know what my plans are yet for New Year's--I may be up in L.A. with my family. But if not, I'm game for a TC gathering, either here or at the Tropics. I'll keep you all posted on my plans.

I don't think I'll have the boat ride in by then. I'm sure we can get the help we need to get you up and down the stairs.

In answer to Monkeyman's question, I at least have always had that day off (except when I was waitressing, ack). I think most people do...

Update:

***Humphreys Half Moon Inn will NOT honor any group rates that weekend because it is deemed a busy holiday weekend.

She will draw up a contract to guarantee a specific number of rooms but the rate is $144 (My first quote was $169) per night. We could always elect to stay someplace else if cost is a burden. The suite scenario could also be fun (per Jabs recommendation) but would anyone actually sleep if 8 people were in the same room? Not sure.

They apparently frown severly on room parties unless all the attendees are hotel guests ?

*** Bali Hai- The Bali Hai DOES offer a New Years Eve celebration downstairs in the South Pacific Room. The banquet room is set up for the OLD School polynesian review and dinner (Yes !!) The details for this year have not been published yet but the estimated cost for dinner and show and New Years festivities is about $90 per person

*** Mr. Tiki- I am still awaiting a reply from Mr. Tiki in hopes that we could have some fun and merriment on Sunday night (01/01/06).

*** I was hoping that a water taxi or boat charter would take ALL of us across the bay from the Bali Hai dock to downtown San Diego where we could trudge over to Mr. Tiki.

Home Bar tours could always take place during the day time. I know that we have Tiki Boom Boom, Ona Tiki and Moki, Matt Reese in decent proximity to Shelter Island.

The Monkeyman South Pacific Room is also available for a tour but I am 30 miles North of Shelter Islan (maybe too far away).

I will keep you all posted.

Hey guys,
I'm going to check on room rates at the Orbit Inn at Palm Springs as well. Normally that place is fairly expensive, but my parents are really good friends with the owners, and I might be able to work something out, depending on their availability. They now have an overflow hotel as well, so maybe they can hook us up at one place or another.

No promises on this yet, and I'm not trying to derail any San Diego plans either, but if I can actually get anything worked out for the Orbit Inn, that would be THE place to stay! I'll get the ball rolling on this today or tomorrow, and keep everyone posted.

For something a bit cheaper then Humphrey's but with a Polynesian atmosphere, there's the Best Western Island Palms that is a short distance from Humphrey's (walkable). The cheapest rooms are $107 on the BW web site.

http://book.bestwestern.com/bestwestern/productInfo.do?propertyCode=05326

Humphrey's is much better because they still have tikis and tiki torches, the pool area and inner gardens are gorgeous, and the rooms are quite nice, but the Island Palms could be an alternative hotel like the Bahia Cabana is to the Bahia Mar at Hukilau.

That's great about the Bali Hai room availability. Thanks for doing the work Monkeyman.
