If anyone is feeling inspired, you can download "One Hour Flapper Dress" here! Keep in mind that you'll look like a sack a potatoes, because everyone does in those dresses.

Those flowers look great!

I think Lippman Co at 50 SE Yamhill and Hollywood Vintage at 2800 NE Sandy both have flapper and gangster costumes.

"Sack o potatoes" heehee and this is different from a muumuu how?? Muumuu with fringe!!! Aw man! Why didn't I think about that a week ago!

we're in portland a day early for the tikiKon, and we have all of tomorrow till about 4 to knock around. we're from washington state, so the liquor nazis have prevented us from getting the best exotic ingredients for our bar. Any suggestions of good liquor stores to go to? ( we're staying in Lake oswego, but we'll drive a bit ).

Also, any good vintage stores that might have guys and gals hawaiiana style clothing, shoes, and accessories?

we're both on the large side and its especially hard for Lopaka to find any jackets or other things.

Appreciate any suggestions you might have and see you tomorrow!
Mahaloz!

Thanks for all your suggestions as to where to go in Portland. we'll be doing the tour later today.

A question to all the wahines out there:
in my travels through Duvall washington, looking for clothes for the event, I found this little eye popper of a dress. Its too small for me, but I have to believe someone out there would like to have it. Id be happy to trade it for a drink - it wasn't very expensive. I don't know the actual size, but I suspect its somewhere between an 8 and a 10. Great like-new condition, and it looks like something "laugh-in era, goldie hawn would wear to a luau". Made by tahiti imports, international market place, waikiki. Pioneer Inn, lahaina maui.
Let me know if you want it or look at it, and I'll bring it.

Will there be real food or just bar food at tonight's secret location? Just trying to plan out dinner.

Well, Pearl Specialty is quite possibly the best liquor store in the northwest. Not having been to all of them , however, I can't be 100% sure, but tis sure better than anything near us in Kenmore.

Just a quick note to thank Craig, Heather, and all the other amaizingly wonderful folks that created and participated in the Portland tikikon!
I enjoyed the company of everyone there, and they made it easy for me to drop my "Drama Queen" colored glasses and have a really great time...
I'm happily exausted,a bit hung over, and still smiling!
Heartfelt Mahaloz to you all!

Hip, Hip Hooray for Heather and Craig! I had a great time as usual, although I am a bit disappointed I missed out on the naked women viewing.

Sorry it's taken me a week to surface after Tiki Kon...after Sunday's home bar tour, I spent all last week scraping/sanding/repairing/etc. my house for painting.

Thanks to everyone who put TK on - it was a blast! Safari bowling Friday, Thatch & Tony Starlite's on Saturday, brunch at Alibi and home bars on Sunday. "Aloha" and "Mahalo" to all the Tiki Kon-sorts I met and shared drinks & good times with!
