If you're coming in for Oasis a few days early -- or staying a few days after -- I recommend stopping in at the Pink Elephant. It's not a tiki bar, but the Tuesday-night bartender serves up generously-sized tropical concoctions, along with lots of soothing Hawaiian/Exotica and plenty of Aloha spirit. Stop by, order up a Mai Tai or a Sneaky Tiki and get yourself into an Oasis state of mind.

The Pink Elephant is located at 3829 30th St., just south of University Avenue in the North Park neighborhood. More info here:

(No, I'm not an employee or co-owner of the Pink Elephant -- I'm just a big fan.)

Is this close to the San Diego Turf Club? Cause that would be a nice evening out!

Crap. I have been living in San Diego for 6 months and just found out about this place. Thing is, I leave in 2 weeks!

See you all at Oasis next week!

Nice! Glad to know tropical drinks and related tunes will be available! I was there a few weeks ago and really liked the room and am /looking forward to more visits.

Sorry about the poor timing for you TikiCutie; on the plus side, they only opened about a month ago, so at least you weren't missing out all along. They're just below the corner of 30th & University - right by Shooters and a quick stumble from Scolari's Office. Maybe a 10 minute drive from the Turf Club?

Got it. Peking Restaurant is a few streets west on University from there - one of the best Charlie Chan old school (is the best school) Chinese places in the city. Will try to go.

The guitar player from that old SD band Pitchfork owns this place.

Buzzy Out!

We should go by there and throw palm tree chips all over the floor for them to make it authentic........and sell them a few tikis to make it even more authentic!

This place looks swell! Tiki Tuesdays with Amie, great idea!

Um, I play pool. Not very well, but...

I wonder if they want some mugs with little drunken pink elephants on them? Hey Babs!

I heard . . . and this is a rumour for now ( I was also 3 or 4 mai tais & sneeky tiki's into the evening . . . ) but I have it on good authority if the price break is right , that there could be a pink elephant mug in the works .

Something to keep an eye on .

This is a pretty cool place. I've only been once so far -- a few days before the "grand opening." Big booths, pool tables, nice retro feel. For those who are familiar with the area, it's basically on 30th Street about a block south of University Avenue, where Dino's Restaurant used to be. It's my understanding that there are several owners, including former bartenders from Pacific Shores in Ocean Beach.

Haven't been to Tiki Tuesdays yet -- although I had seen an ad for it in the local City Beat. I'm going to try and stop by soon after work.

Great bar. Ami makes a really good cocktail. Her signature drink is the sneaky tiki which is quite good. I've only been once, I loved it. Good atmosphere and a very nice bunch of folks to hang with. Highly recommended! If you like Pacific Shores or the Turf Club you'll love The Pink Elephant.
Cheers.

Went last night. Like the place, very friendly and very enjoyable drinks. Think they should keep the misprinted "Skeaky Tiki" name, it's funny after the 3rd drink. We had to skeak out early when the hubby claimed his drink garnish was his dinner.

We're back on Tiki Tuesday to officially kick off our tiki week of rum and debauchery.

~Bring more rum~

I'll be there on Tuesday as well. It's become a regular stop for me.

Went to the Pink Elephant last night. GREAT concept on a limited budget, but I'm sure the place will improve as time goes on and they start making money. Got a GREAT $4.00 Mai Tai from a cool and courteous bartender, saw a few folks I knew, and had a good time. Motorcycle parking out front.
