We had an absolute blast at Oasis this year!!
Cheers to Otto and Baby-Do and everyone else involved for topping it, yet again this year, despite having just had a baby and many bemoaning the venue change etc
San Diego rocked and the only thing I missed of Palm Springs was the weather. Both venues had prose and cons. Personally, I'd like to see Oasis move around, but if that's not possible, I'd vote for SD in '07.
The shows were great(production values and all), the Bali Hai rocked and it was great getting to meet and hang out with such cool people. Heck, I even got a drink personally served to me by Shag...thanks Ben! We also had a chance to check out Mr Tiki and the new Neo Tiki, Lei Lounge, which just opened.
The Room crawls were AWESOME!! The parties getting closed was a pain, but ultimately part of the fun (as one would start in another room)- a Tiki treasure hunt of sorts.
Monkeyman, your monkeypod rocked. It was great to get served my favorite drink at FI, by it's inventor. Ran, your Keilhaul kicked major butt, too (ps Thanks for the CD - It'll soon be gracing FI's Juke)
We really enjoyed the decor at the Hanalei as well.
A wonderful time, indeed.
