Ok, we're up to 34 paid. That's most of the people that reserved in the beginning. I still haven't heard from :

cynfulcynner
Miss Frenchy
Isaca
TikiMel

Hurry up, peeps!

So now I'm posting my PayPal email account to any TC members who want to get on the bus:
martincate@mindspring.com

(OK, so it wasn't really a secret email address)

Remember to include your tikicentral name, your full real name, and where you are going at the end of the night. ("You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.")
$20 per person.

See everyone soon-

-martin

I like the SS Minnow, too. It has a sense of wacky doom that I think is apropos for the event (considering how I felt after last year (not to mention how Hanford must have felt in the morning)).

The big question is, who knows how to make a bamboo radio?

Hey Tiki Mama,
That bus is in my town, see it all the time, and occasionally the owners come to the restaurant I work at to git some vittles! It's a pretty nifty bus!

Are we catching the bus at Trad'r Sam's or at some other more easily accessed (downtown?) locale and then on to Trade'r Sam's?

And, if anyone knows, what time is everyone meeting at said bar?

I'm all paid up!

Hey - if I'm the Miss Frenchy you're referring to, I think I'll have to give the bus a miss - I'll either be sucked along in Mig's wake (or I'll be a designated tiki hauler in the amazing Frenchy oldsmobile).

By the way... "get on the bus" was a 60s slang phrase that the Banana Splits used a lot. Was it exclusive to the Banana Splits or was it common in other parts too?

I've been using it in my posts in reference to Spike Lee's 1996 film "Get On The Bus" about the Million Man march.

Not very tiki. But a good film.

This is the being formerly known as Blair, friend of Melintur and Tikimama

Just saying hi, I will be on the bus. I'm eagerly anticipating a grand night(s) out!

Exxxxxcelent, Blair. I see the conversion is going well.


OK- 37 paid on the bus. Again, any spots I don't sell with PayPal before Saturday night will be for sale at Trad'r Sam's for $25.

Remember to come by the Foggy Grotto for a pre-party drink from 5 to 6:15. Located just down the street from Sam's:

447 Seventh Ave #2
between Geary and Anza
415-387-0145

We'll all leave at 6:15 as a terrifying tiki mob storming down Geary to Sam's.

Aloha!

What has been decided about stocking the bar on the Minnow? Or did we decide to skip that because we won't be on the buss very long?

I'm burning a copy of Exotica I & II (Martin Denny, of course!) for airplay on the Minnow. See ya all tomorrow night at TV's!

This tripple stop trip is destined to make a
memorable event for all the tikiphiles in here.
I wish lounge could go too,but there aren't any busses for single bachelors..
-Maybe next year, Lounge

Oh, and the bus will start at Sam's at 8:00pm

Thanks for reminding me TT:

There are a few things that are needed for the bus:

1. Drinks: I'd like to see some cocktails on the bus. Rumors of a bar on the bus are somewhat exaggerated. It's more like an airplane drink service cart that rolls down the aisle. So drinks should be pre-mixed (at least mixers/juice/syrup in one and rum in the other) so it's simple. And everything should probably be put into shatterproof plastic, like a 2 liter bottle. They will provide some sodas. I'll bring a little something, but not enough for everyone probably. See what you guys can come up with and be creative.

2. Food- I think some dry starchy acid-soaking snack items would be a good idea, since we're getting such an early start. Please grab a thing or two.

3. Decorations- I'd like to see the bus done up properly, so if anyone wants to bring decorations (of the disposable, non-valuable luau-party type variety) please feel free. The more the better.


thanks everyone,

Martin

Yah, Lounge, are you KIDDING?

I'm a swinging bachelorette, and wild carnivorous tikis wouldn't keep me off the bus!! C'mon--there are still spaces available!!!

You WERE kidding, right??

I'll even buy you a drink.
