It official now.

The tiki tour bus will be leaving on the 25th of August. Many more details to come...keep your eyes peeled. Trying to do as much as possible for as little $$ as possible. Thinking cost will be about $30 or $35 per head.

This will get you the transportation, the live music, free cocktails on the bus, and some swag at most if not all stops!!

Focusing predominantly on Mass this inaugural year with about 6 stops planned.


For those just discovering this, here's the impetus from the NE thread:




"....here's the tentative plan for Bargoyle's Booze Bus & Tiki Tour.

Late Summer (maybe even into Sept.) I'm renting a party bus. 30 to 40 seats (or more) depending on interest. Bathroom, & full bar on board...might even take the time to decorate it the night before if the guy will let me.

Then....well, booze fueled mayhem across New England!!

So, Sat early afternoon....maybe late morning....We'll hit all the favorite spots (New Tiki, South Pacific, Bali Hai, etc) most likely ending at the Kowloon. And I'm working on something special for that final stop.

After that its back to the loading area which will prob be a hip hotel/motel somewhere central, where everyone can crash & then nobody has to drive. Hoping that a block of rooms = discount, & maybe even some event there at the hotel...if anyone thinks they'll still be conscious for it.

Then, perhaps a social gathering to commiserate hangovers on Sunday late morning...a little food, some tunes, and we're done.

Oh also thinking that the kick off will be in chicopee at the HuKeLau for the show on friday night before all this happens, but that'll have to be all worked out too.

The reason for all this craziness??

1) I'm not having a Luau this year, and I still wanna do something tiki-themed with the NE ohana (and anyone else who wants to come on up...NY...NJ...I'm looking in your direction).

2) We need a cool annual New England event so I've decided to stop bitching about the lack of one, and start one.

3) I'm kinda mental.

So, more info to come. Still ALOT of details to hammer out.

If anyone has any suggestions about any of it or wants to lend a hand, let me know.

Pm me or post em up. I wanna make sure we maximize the mayhem, so I'm very open to ideas. Oh, and the bus guy wont let anyone fire-knife dance on the bus, so if you were gonna suggest that, its out unfortunately."

I swear we should rent an Airstream for this.

If we REALLY wanted to spread our wings, we could overnight at the Tiki Hotel at Lake George.

Hey SB...

I think if we include Lake George we need to upgrade to a Jet Stream, not an AirStream (or at least a helicopter.)

Hmmm.....

That actually might make a good trip for next year. Start in central mass & head west hitting joints to the lake.

Well, if this year is a success, we'll see....

You've got at least two coming from RI. Rain holler if you're in man.

Thanks for lighting the torch Bargoyle!

IF??? How could it NOT be a success??



So, Chicopee Hukelau, to Newton South Pacific, to Westford New Tiki, to Lynnfield Bali Hai, to Saugus Kowloons, and back to a Chicopee motel.



Do we want to get some custom T-Shirts made for the event?
