First off, hopefully you'll get lucky on the weather and it won't be gray and raining! For tiki drinking, hit Thatch for drinks and decor, and the Alibi for the decor. Doug Fir is a good place to stay. Depending on your interests, there are lots of things to see and do in the area.

I have not make it to Thatch, but LOVE the Alabi. Be sure to drive down Interstate Avenue (the street that the Alabi is on) to check out the neon and watch for the little blue monkey! Although not tikified, my favorites are The Original (the original, Original) Pancake House (on Barbur) and Escape from New York Pizza (on NW 23rd).

Thatch is a must. As is the Alibi, the Palms Motor Hotel sign, Voodoo doughnuts, and the Velveteria. I've been to all soooo many times and keep going back more for. As for the 24 hour church of Elvis, I have been waiting and waiting for it to re-open. They have the door from the old one at the Morrison Hotel. Unfortunately, the weddings are not available at this time. Guess I will have to recant the email I just sent to Drew saying that we are getting married... Do go check out the 24 hour Church of Elvis though, it's been closed for 4 years.

I cruised by the Church of Elvis alleged new location a few weekends ago on a late nite adventure to lay my lips around a C&B donut and it is indeed not open....yet. The rumors were only that. It is merely an empty storefront - but the outdoor signage promises a reopening. Promises, promises. (sigh)

Yeah, Drew and I drove by it last night and all we saw was the sign. It will be interesting to see if it really happens or not.
