Let's get together to celebrate the embarassment of tiki riches we have in Nor Cal, at the newest jewel in the crown: Hula's in Santa Cruz. It's in a great location -- folks from Monterey to San Jose to Palo Alto can make it there pretty easily, and it's well worth the trip for folks from points beyond throughout the Bay Area. Hanford & I checked it out last night, and we loved it (I posted a trip report in the Locating Tiki thread for Hula's).

Here's the address:
221 Cathcart St.
Santa Cruz, CA

And here's a tantalizing preview:

Who would be able to make it for dinner & drinks on Friday, 12/22? Or Saturday, 12/23? (That's a week from now).

If you can't make it on one of those days, but you wish you could, go ahead & offer up another date that will work for you (the variations in everyone's schedules, combined with the holidays, might mean we can't find a date that will work for everyone, but we can try).

[Edited to include Saturday as a possible date]

I am dying to try out Hula's. However, that day would not be good for me. I would prefer the 29th or 30th. Too much to do and too much traffic the Friday before Christmas.

Saturday would work for us, but I think it wouldn't work for Tofu Joe & Haole'akamai (she works that night, I believe), and Unga might be working (not sure, but he's had to miss out on Saturday stuff in the past, it would suck for him to miss a rare event in his own backyard). Traffic would definitely be better on Saturday, though, with no rush hour to contend with, and it might allow some folks to drive up from So Cal (which would be awesome).

Mrs.Mojo & Dr.TikiMojo would be able to do it on Saturday the 23rd.....it's literally the last remaining day on our calender that isn't already penciled in!

Any new Tiki Bar/Restaurant in about 2 hour drive or less sounds pretty exciting to us!

I def. can't make it on Sat, but TofuJoe is a possible. It would be sad to know y'all were there without me, tho...

The 22nd or 23rd would potentially work best for us.

Just heard back from Monsieur Bunga, and he can make it Friday, but not on Saturday.

Drunken Hat, I never answered your question about what time -- I think aiming a bit later in the evening, to avoid traffic, would be best. If it was later, would you be able to make it Friday night? Right along Hwy 17, there's a massive
Christmas light display (in Los Gatos). Perhaps those of us who are able to meet up a bit earlier can hit the lights first, and then head over a bit later to meet up at Hula's? Now, where's my thermos...

Darn! I will definitely watch for another time! Have fun!!

There's a good chance we'll be in Santa Cruz on the 23rd, for sure we'll arrive the next day. But if it's the 23rd we'll try to make it down. My mother was just telling me about this place. When I was a kid it was a chinese restaurant that we used to go to.

Well it looks like we can't make either of these days.

Have a great time on whichever day you settle on, and we'll be sure to meet up with folks down there some other time (it will become a regular trip yes?)

Sorry we haven't been able to nail this down just yet -- I'm now getting conflicting reports about Unga Bunga's availability. Last I heard, he may be able to make it Saturday after all, and it looks now like Saturday will be a better day for turnout in general. Sorry to keep everyone hanging -- hopefully I'll hear back from Unga myself soon!
