Here is the text from Arriano's linky.

$50 for SOHO Members $65 for non-members
Tour Guides: Alex Bevil & Jaye Furlonger
2-7pm (Boarding at 1:45am)

Join urban archaeologists on a guided tour in search of San Diego's Tiki temples. See the hidden gardens of the Hanalei Hotel, walk under the soaring Half Moon Inn's porte-cochere, and wonder: "What ever happened to the Kona Kai?" More than ten diverse sites will be featured, culminating in a short presentation on Tiki and cocktail party at the Bali Hai, and a chance to mingle with local historians to talk about the city's unique Tiki Modern architecture.

Alex Bevil is a California State Parks historian, adjunct professor of the San Diego New School of Architecture and Design, and author of several award-winning articles on San Diego's architectural and military history in the Journal of San Diego History.

With a Masters Degree in Public History from USD, Jaye Furlonger is an authority on San Diego's bygone Hollywood Burlesque Theatre and works as an architectural historian for IS Architecture in La Jolla.

Weekend Wrap Up Cocktail Party
5-7pm
$30 for SOHO Members $40 for non-members

After three days of tours, lectures and shopping for your favorite architecture books, relax and have a little fun while learning a bit about an often overlooked piece of San Diego's historic architectural legacy. You will be greeted with a world famous Bali Hai Mai Tai and Pu Pu appetizers to enjoy while overlooking San Diego's beautiful bay front, a perfect ending to a weekend in paradise.

Note: No sales at the door. Advance RSVP ONLY.

Sixty-five clams for the two hour tour, 40 clams for a party afterwards? And you get one drink and (share?) an appetizer plate for that? Can we just crash in on the afterparty and buy a drink for 6.95 instead? That would be a savings of, um... lemme see, $98.05.

I applaud the whole idea, but the price is way too high for strolling through 10 places we've no doubt already been to. I'd sure like to see the exact list of the places visited, which doesn't seem to be provided....

yeah the price is a bit steep for my blood. I will be at the Bali Hai that morning for my monthly trip with friends for brunch though. This sounds great but $65, eek.

Yeah, I thought it was a little bit steep as well. But thought I would post it just in case anyone was interested. Maybe I'll just show up and lurk around in the back.

Hey, I'll drive a party of four in my car to all the Tiki Locales they want if somebody will play bongoes and uke in the back seat and buy me a Rum Collins at the Bali Hai.

If you split the Collins, that'll be about 1.98 each.

The catch is, you'll have to put up with me talking about the Tiki places we visit....
