Update: Official Tiki Crawl Mug Announced, plus more! See the official site for details.

----------------------------------------------------

ALOHA! Save the date- October 9-12, 2008!
The Crawl is back and more powerful than ever! New Stops! New Surprises! More rum!
Tiki Central's Tiki Crawl 8 -- Official site!

Come join in the biggest Bay Area Tiki Bar Crawl yet! Four days! Ten Bars! Savor the world of tiki with visits to bars and restaurants both new and legendary all over the Bay Area. Celebrate the rich history of tiki in the Bay Area, and its lasting impact for over 70 years. Make your plans today to join in an exciting four day weekend of good friends, good drinks, and good tiki. It all starts on:

THURSDAY, October 9th: SOUTH BAY THURSDAY

We once again return to the South Bay to enjoy two top notch spots: Smoke Tiki in San Jose and Trader Vicís in Palo Alto. And youíll be able to enjoy the entire event from the comfort and safety of an air-conditioned shuttle bus which will depart from San Francisco that afternoon. Donít miss all the great times and great tunes as we kick off the weekend in style.



FRIDAY, October 10th: FRISCO FRIDAY

San Francisco continues to offer some of the best tiki bars around, both new and old, and each year is always a memorable experience as we trace the roots of tiki across the City by the Bay. We will start as per tradition at the legendary Tradír Samís. Open since 1939 (or possibly 1937), Tradír Samís is the quintessential neighborhood tiki dive bar, and the oldest continuously operating tiki bar on earth. Step into history at this friendly watering hole for an early happy hour meet and greet. Then itís off to one of the last great temples of mid-century American Tiki, the Tonga Room. Located in the beautiful Fairmont Hotel, and recently given a fresh update (still plenty oí tiki, have no fear!), The Tonga Room continues to dazzle with its amazing dťcor, tropical rainstorms, and potent potables. Then itís up to North Beach to the mighty Bamboo Hut, serving up tiki goodness for almost a decade- and you wonít want to miss a very special surprise weíll have in store!



SATURDAY, October 11TH: EAST BAY SATURDAY

All aboard the mighty Tiki Bus! The Bus returns bigger than ever (57 passenger) to escort you in style from San Francisco to the incredible array of East Bay tiki bars. Our first stop will be Forbidden Island . Located in the heart of Alameda, Forbidden Island offers true vintage tiki bar atmosphere and world class cocktails to match- you may have seen them featured in the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Food & Wine, the Today Show, and much more. Then itís off to the Conga Lounge, Oaklandís oasis and home to expertly prepared cocktails, award-winning pizza, and an amazing atmosphere- all set to the upbeat tunes of DJ Tropic. So grab a bite and get ready for the next stop, Oakland ís Kona Club. In a stunningly designed space, youíll enjoy a terrific array of cocktails and beers- and donít miss the hypnotic hula girl or erupting volcano!

After that, weíre very proud to announce that we will make our way to the place that started it all for a very special, once in a lifetime event: Trader Vicís Emeryville!! You spoke, and we listened, and moved Vicís to the end so that it will be our grand finale! So get ready: For the first time ever, we will be taking over their stunning main dining room for a cocktail reception like youíve never seen! Trader Vicís famous exotic cocktails, delicious food, and historic dťcor will all be at your fingers, as you mix, mingle, and swoon to the gentle hapa haole sounds of the Bay Areaís own Mai Kai Gents featuring the Mysterious Miss Mauna Loa. One gaze across the bay to the beautiful lights of San Francisco , and youíll know youíve reached tiki nirvana.



SUNDAY, October 12th: SLOWDOWN SUNDAY

Our Sunday afternoon tradition continues: Take it nice and easy with an afternoon trip to Forbidden Island in Alameda . Relax and talk very slowly and quietly with other tiki lovers as you vainly attempt to piece together the events of the rest of the weekend. Weíre going to have a potluck as well, along with the usual shenanigans.

PLUS MORE SURPRISES AND EVENTS TO BE ANNOUNCED!

Ya know, Pea...that's two rockabilly events and NO tiki events! I think you've gotta re-distribute here!
