Sounds like a great opportunity to smuggle back some Havana Club Rum! Anyone here have a hollow leg I can fill up?

This hotel is no so bad either, the location is good. It's your basic chain hotel.
They're advertising a 'hot deal' for Vancouver ($139/night) that includes parking.

AND the Sandman is super close to Funhauser & Chinatown!

I didn't know that was a Sandman.
When I went to school at VCC(1997-'98) I walked past the Shark Club many times and never even noticed the hotel. Guess I had other stuff on the mind. ha.

Unless I get a room mate, or hear that others will be staying at the Blue Horizon, I'll do the Sandman. I plan on getting some mugs n stuff from Funhauser, so less distance to cart them around is always better.

Also, a sky train station is right beside GM place, for other adventures. There is also a Pacific Coach Lines(PCL) bus stop right close to there, for people that might be flying in(Our Alberta Brethren)

Thanks Pepe!

I still think we should have a big slumber party at Funhauser...

Then again a store full of mugs and rum filled TC'ers may not mix to well.

Here's some pics of the Waldorf from 2003 (when Lushy played there for a New Year's Show), you can get the idea of what the Tahitian Lounge is like :

Thank you to Bella from Lushy for sharing these photos !

Actually, we're talking about driving. Tiki road trip!

....Unless I get a room mate, or hear that others will be staying at the Blue Horizon...

OHMIGOD! The Blue Horizon! We stayed there when I was a kid and just this past May I was sleuthing the internet trying to find it. I want to stay there again soooo bad!!

Then last month I found an old Blue Horizon postcard in the basement and I about screamed (it doesn't take much to excite me).

If I can find a ride out of Olympia or Seattle with someone I would consider going and room with you Tikiwahine...(if you'll have me!)

I'm going to go see if I can find some old pics and that postcard and let you guys see them... back later.



Ok... i found one photo so far. This is Aunt Emma and me on the balcony. I scanned the photo against the wild dress she was actually wearing since I own it (I think this was the summer of 1970). I wonder if those buildings in the background are still there and if I could figure out which room we had by the photo...



The Blue Horizon was so cool as a kid...so high up (or so it seemed) and they had a pool!

"That mean you're coming up for the show?" -Tikiwahine

Unlikely. For reasons of national security I'm required to stay on American soil during the next 6 months. I would tell you more, but if I did there is a very delicious fudge recipe that could be compromised.

Finally got the photos online. These are scans of postcards from the 1950s of The Polynesian Room and Tahitian Room at the Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver, B.C.

Enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who posted photos and links pertaining to this event. Funhauser sure looks like a good time and a must see!!

Dogbytes and Tikiwahine...got your messages and will be in touch with you very soon.

I finally got a chance to scan my Blue Horizon postcard. Actual postcard size is 3.5 x 5.5" but I scanned it a little bit bigger to show more details. My brother claims the year was 1968.



I will stay wherever everyone wants...if I just see the Blue Horizon in person again I'll be satisfied. Maybe shoot some digitals of it.

I hope they still make Macintosh toffee in Canada because I'm going to load up dogbytes vehicle with it (like a supply good for the next 10 years?!?).

Where's Travellin' Tiki...she needs to know about this party...

Hmmm if this is a tiki road trip i just might have to bring my video camera and do a little bit of filming. Monkeyskull can only ban my camera at HIS house.

As far as I know they still make Macintosh's toffee, but I haven't had any since I was a kid. That stuff is excellent for removing loose fillings (and even ones that aren't all that loose).
