I just picked up a few dozen lemons off my parents tree (organically grown and good meyers quality)... I'll bring them and they are available to anyone who can use them...

This won't do. Don't embarrass yourself by offering the XO to any respectable mixologist. Bring it to my room and I will exchange it for some Bacardi Gold.
Tiki-Bot, you scurvy rascal! Well, we'll just have to pop the cork and try it (just picked it up - hand blown glass bottle, real cork, looking like a pretty respectable rum). The caviat is that you'll have to explain the finer points of rum tasting before we're all too inebriated to appreciate the subtleties.

After much thought, I have decided to make my mojitos from 4:30-6:00 on Friday. I figure it would be a good first stop for those rolling in on Friday. After a long drive, nothing beats a refreshing mojito.

I'll be hosting the bar on Saturday evening starting at 7:45 in room 135!
Alright, that is about the 5th person who has said they are hosting in Room 135 (which I thought was always Traditionally Al & Shelly's pad...) what's going on here? You all can't be staying in that same room. another question - isn't Futura Girl hosting the quiet room next door to Room 135... or did she say 235? Or am I going crazy or is there some sort of conspiracy going on with "Room 135"... ah that's it, it is the secret code for somthing... if only I could figure out what the code means....

Rm 135 is code for the roof. Nice view, privacy and lots of space. The ladder is behind the dumpsters.

Buy King Kukulele's CD - He is the MC for the event and hopefully he'll have some for sale this weekend - listen to "Otto's Oasis" and all will be revealed.

Okay, I just have to say, that the Oasis crawl was the coolest experience I've had at the event! I met great people, sampled some awesome cocktails, many of which were very well presented!
I really look forward to this being a regular feature of Tiki Oasis!
many thanks to all who participated!

Me too! What Pup said!
BTW, I really dug that Typhoon...
I only regret I couldn't make it to more of the 'hotel home bar' venues.
Next year...gulp...we might even host ourselves. Something...hmmm...let's see, yes, a *red* drink. It'll taste nice too, I promise. Plus snacks, because my one problem with the whole enterprise was that I REALLY had to pace myself, ie not finish drinks, which felt rude. But I just wasn't taking time to eat enough.
Thanks, everybody! xox tikivixen

Whoever witnessed the goofy smile on my face in 135 on Saturday night will know this was the best Tiki Oasis for me to date! What an unbelievably loving and welcoming family that you instantly feel you've known for years! Today, I had to pack up and head west back to the "Burbs" ( that one's for you Doctor Z!) but the days at Tiki Oasis can never be taken away and I am, once again, so thankful for Otto putting it on! Of course, I'd be an idiot not to thank Hanford for allowing us to already know each other before meeting! Fantastic! Life is good......

The room crawl was one of the greatest Tiki Oasis ideas ever! The comraderie, drunkeness, and friendly sense of competition was only matched by the quality and inventiveness of the drinks I enjoyed. I salute the drink-makers and idea-makers!

The room crawl was way beyond my greatest of expectations. I am glad to see it was enjoyed by so many and the Hosts all did a fantastic job! Such attention to detail!
Special Thanks to Doctor Z for putting this bug in my ear and helping me with the arrangements. (And for getting my Oasis started off right Thursday night, and hangover cure for Sun. am!)And to MarTiki for the message passed along to Z.

It was such a blast!!!! The Crawl made it reall easy to meet other TC friends (and let me tell you I consider everyone I met a FRIEND). Talk about Hospitality everyone was so kind and fun to be around. GREAT DRINKS!!! I don't think I was drinkless for the entire 4 days!! I want to thank all of the room hosts for such a great time. What a great idea Dr. Z!!!
