Got a chance to check out Velveteria in Portland last summer. This sounds like a great show. Hope it is still up after Tiki Oasis!

Ditto!

Any word on how long the exhibit will be on display, scootmagapril? Lots of us would love to see it, but are already booked at Tiki Oasis thru that weekend. Sounds like fun!

Aloha,
Myke

Thanks for your interest in the event. The event at Minna is one night only, unfortunately. We're there to grab some free drinks, check out some nekkid ladies, beach huts and some sad clowns and chat velvets with the guests.
Sorry we'll miss some of you.
I highly recommend stopping by the museum in Portland. It is a blast.

Also, if you are interested in seeing some of the images from the book with author commentary, Newsweek did a fun piece on it:
