Help! I'm looking to take a vacation, unfortunately I won't be able to until the summer. I'm looking to tie it into a tiki event if possible. I'm on a budget so nothing to extravagent. It would be cool to also go to something with Shag as I've never been to one of his shows. Any advise or suggestions?

There are a few events mentioned (some need dates finalized) in the Tiki Events calendar
http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=12675&forum=4&vpost=134631

That would be a good place to start. My recommendations; NW TIki Crawl, Tiki TOrch Nights in Atlanta (great event and VIc's is fantastic there-date not yet set), Int'l Tiki day (Southern calif-no city yet, or Northern Calif--maybe in Modesto). Exotica would be great, too--but it is approaching without a date and that is not a good sign for a big event like that.

I was thinking of going to California. I'm looking for some type of vacation either there or Florida this summer. Just thought if there was gonna be something going on that would be great. I haven't been on this site in quite awhile and glad to be back. I've already found some ideas on your calendar. I'm gonna see if I can find someplace where there's gonna be Shag gallery event this summer, hopefully.

Florida is very humid in the summer, although the water is very, very warm.

The Mai Kai is in Ft. Lauderdale, approx 45 minutes from Miami Beach South Beach, which is where the action is; however, all the tiki is gone, even if there is total tropic feeling.

Tiki abounds in San Diego: Humphrey's Half Moon, Bali Hai and Trader Morts on Shelter Island, Mr. Tiki's and SpaTiki in the Gaslamp and Red Lion HanaLei in Hotel Circle.

The weather is gorgeous and you can drink on the beach (although not on the boardwalk).

However, LA or SF is the place for tikicentral events.

Have you considered moving up the time of your vacation for the SF Crawl, Tiki Oasis or International Tiki Day?

I want to clarify what Christiki is talking about. All the tiki is gone in MIAMI South BEatch, not the Mai-KAi. Christiki knows there are oodles of tikis at the Mai-Kai.
When I visit FLorida, I like to stay in Ft Lauderdale to be close to the Mai Kai-I can always take an east drive to Miami to check it out.--Smiley

I would love to move the date up, unfortunately I won't have vacation time before the summer. Hopefully something cool will be coming up in Chicago for International Tiki day.

Chicago (also hot & humid in the summer) is Exotica, whereas International Tiki day is in Orange County (OC), CA - I believe previously held at Baxdog's. That would be a much better selection.

Hey, it's International Tiki Day! If some of the Chicago ohana want to throw something they can. Of course you can't have bonfires on North Beach, but they could throw a bar-b-que, or meet at Hala Kahiki or Trader Vic's.

Great Dave. I already made reservations for Chinese New Year at the Chef, so I'll be there at 3pm. I got an email about Cruz Island and Beach 2. I guess it's a weekend event in Redondo Beach that features new & vintage Hawaiina. Have any of you heard of it or been there?

Oh, I just remembered. Isn't there some kind of event in Vegas in the summer, or is it the fall, I can't remember. I'd love to go to Vegas, I've never been.

I think that event was at the Hard Rock a few years ago and was a one-time only event -unless it has resurfaced.

It is a very good tiki and Hawaiiana sale.
Cocktails at Purple Orchid often follow.

the mondo tiki was in vegas and was a one-time deal, however, there have been rumors of it happening again this year. this april is the rock-a-billy weekender, which, lately has taken a turn for tiki. I've noticed alot more tiki related things being associated with the weekender over the past 2 years. seems that tiki has taken a firmer hold on the rock-a-billy scene than it has in past years.....

check out the la luz de jesus gallery in hollywood. shag usually has a show or something going on there. or check the copro/nason gallery in culver city(L.A.)
