Maholo to the organizers and attendees to the crawl. This was my first time "on the bus" and we had a blast both nights. I am proud to say I have been upgraded from a Tiki Central lurker to a full fledged poster (that is if this works!)
Special thanks to WooHooWahine, SoccerTiki and Metikiman 1705 for helping us learn the ropes!

I noticed this piece of art was missing from one of the bathrooms in the Emeryville Trader Vics. I hope it didn't disappear during the crawl! The management was and has been great to us and they don't deserve the theft of this! Please don't make a big deal because at this point all I know is that it was there in October 2008. Some jerk may have taken it a few months ago. It is too bad that apparently someone did take it at some point. RAZZ!
On another note, I nominate a new thread just for photos. How about here;

Have a nice Tiki Day!
If you like it,it is ZAZZ! If you don't, give it a RAZZ.

What a killer weekend! I'm so happy to be back in the Bay Area and it was wonderful to see everyone. Many, many mahalos to HL and Mai Tai for putting on a great weekend; thanks for ALL of your amazing hard work. Notch, thanks for the killer mug and for letting us all through your wonderful shop and really awesome bar. I had a great time with the rest of the flight crew on the bus... thanks for letting me help out. Special amazing mahalos to the staff at both Trader Vic's Emeryville and Palo Alto - being treated to specially priced drinks and amazing bands at both locations was so special. We're lucky Ohana 'round these parts! I'm looking forward to all of the treats in store for next year - Tiki Crawl 10 WILL KICK ARSE!

Thanks to Hanford and Mai Tai for pulling Tiki Crawl 9 together. Now that my head is clear again, I can certainly say that the people, venues, and beverages were top drawer. The "short bus" we brought was a good time and convenient, but I would also enjoy riding the long bus next time. As a former Piedmont resident, my head and internal organs are grateful that the Conga Room and Kona Club were nondescript fraternity bars in those days. Mahalo!

It always takes me a few weeks of decompression after the crawl, but better late than never:
Mahalo to everyone! Our full list of Thank Yous is up on the official crawl site. Check it out:
Also, remember we still have mugs left from the crawl. Pick one up before it's too late:
