For those who havent seen the posting in the New England events, I'm putting together a mini tiki tour on April 26th.

22 seat bus, touring southern NE spots, the cape, etc.

These are spots that will most likey NOT be on the full fledged NETT in September.

This is also a "no-frills" trip. No real swag (just what I can dig up) and no raffle. Just a short-bus full of people who want to see a little more of New England tiki.

I'll bring a few gallons of something (spindrifts?) on board, and people are welcome to BYOB.

Likely stops are :

Ho Kong, Mon Kou, Chuck's China Inn, Tiki Hawaii, & Tiki Port

subject to change.

Cost is $40/person, and we'll prob start/end the day in Middleboro.

If there's enough interest, I can upgrade to the larger bus.

PM or email me to reserve your spot.

Yo Bargoyle. Sounds like a Tiki Blast. Let's do it. Any chance to have cocktails and pu-pu's with the Ohana is a good thing. So can you suggest a hotel/motel to finish up the day at. Don't want to ruin the day with a visit to the tiki lock-up.

The semi-official hotel will be the Days Inn.

http://www.daysinn-middleboro.com/

The bus will leave from there at noon on the 26th. I'd strongly suggest spending the night, or arranging some kind of sober transport home.

We should be returning to the hotel by 11:00pm.

Should be another tiki-filled day of fun!!

Are they giving us a break on group pricing for NETTjr?

Back by 11:00PM? That leaves us time for a room-crawl...

No break on rooms (I figure with 22 of us its only a dozen rooms or so) but the cost is only 60-70 bucks.

They've got a lot of 2 bed rooms avaiable, so you can split the cost with someone if needed.

Please post photos, for those of us who can only be there in spirit!

I never realized how lucky we are/were in New England to have so many cool tiki places, until I moved to a place where no one knows what I am talking about!

Ok, I think we're full right now.

That may change. We've had a few cancelations already (due to the date change).

I'll send out payment requests next week.

Thanks again for the support & interest!!!

Go Tour!!!!

I found this in the paper today, and it just happens to happen on the day of the NETT, Jr., in the same area.. Just something else we could do, after the first round of fun. I know it's Jimmy Buffett themed, just a thought..

I'm confused - is this the night before or the night of the tour?

Is it close to the hotel? Could be a challenge after a day of drinking.

But...I'm a little bit intrigued....is there a link or more info? 75 bones for a lei and 2 drinks? There must be food or something else I am missing.

In any event, I'll bet that our bus will have at least 40 better bartenders than that party...

Oh, and what the F is a Zeiterion and why do I want to support it?

It's the night of the tour. The Zeiterion is in New Bedford about 15 minutes from the hotel. I've never been there, but just saw it in the paper.
