I am thrilled to announce that my good friend Tony Merchell (one of THE experts on Palm Springs Modernism) will be giving his insider's 3 hour guided bus tour during Tiki Oasis. (And I will do my best Huell Howser impression as we tour!)

Highlights will include:
* Souvenir program
* Tour Stop at a beautiful Alexander home - complete with a HOME TIKI BAR!!! (Dr. Kaplan House by Palmer and Krisel, 1957)
* Tour Stop at a 2nd beautifully restored home - with a small resident tiki (Florsheim House by Donald Wexler 1957)
* Tour Stop at Toucan's Tiki Bar for complimentary "REFRESHMENTS!!!"
* Drive by the Frank Sinatra Home
* Drive by the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway
* Drive by the Neitra's Architectural Masterpiece - the Kauffman House
* And of course much much more...

Day/Date: Saturday May 7th
Time: 1:30 - 4:30 (please show up at 1:15)
Start/Stop: Caliente Tropics
Price Per Person: $40
*** INCLUDES A COCKTAIL at Toucan's Tiki Bar
(normally a Tony Merchell tour goes for $75-100 a seat - so this is a bargain folks!)

Seating is limited!!!
To insure a seat on the bus you may pay in advance with my cousin "Futura Girl" on site at Oasis - she's in room #139
Or check in with "Matteo 'Hukilau' Brown" volunteer coordinator for Oasis - who is also in room 139...

If there are remaining seats they will be sold first come first served cash only please... See you there!

Oh Yes! I had planned on trying to do this on my own, but it undoubtedly might be better listening to someone who knows what they're talking about.
I'd like to hear more details as they unfold

This sounds great. How about later in the afternoon between the shopping and the evening events? It's always nice (for me, at least) to get away from the massive crowd for a few hours.

Where's the ticket line? Great idea Cherry. I tell myself everytime I go to Palm Springs I'm gonna do something like this but I still haven't done it! I also agree with Unga Bunga's delicately broached suggestion that we might break for refreshments along the way. "A man can work up a helluva thirst out there in the desert." - C. Eastwood

Definitely add two more (Mr & Ms TikiCrow)!!!

When I first heard about this architecture tour I was doubly disappointed that we didn't have tickets for the Oasis -- then along came the Royal Sun snafu and now we in.

Got to love those snafus sometimes

Dear Cherry,

i have a fabulous friend in palm springs who lives in a lovely restored Donald Wexler home, and he would be interested in opening his home for the tour in exchange for seeing you in concert at Oasis. Any interest?
