Just out of curiousity, what size are the spaces and how much does it cost to vend?

I screwed up and got a 5'x10' under tent booth not realizing I have a commitment that day. I'd like to find someone who wants to share the booth with me and help me sell some paintings, which take up very little space, in exchange for them having the rest of the booth to themselves - no cost.

Hi Oko,

I have been waiting for Michael to write back about a vending spot but have not heard. I would be happy to share your spot & vend for you if I can't get a space.

That would be great you guys. The mastermind behind our incredible movie collection - which was duly noted in a recent SF Chronicle write up -not only vending dvd's but Song Shen's amazing velvets too (one of which hangs proudly at the bar)

I have to say, I don't spend enough time around the tiki crowd - so relaxed and helpful! Fab Gabs Vintage is thrilled to be on board.

Mahalo!

I just booked my airfare, so Taboo Island will be there!

Any recommendations on a hotel nearby? I'm looking at the Days Inn, seems like one of the closest...

Hey Mo-Eye,

Glad to have you aboard!

The Days Inn has some cool Googi architecture, but sadly, is pretty sketchy. I'd recommend the
Hawthorne Suites - really close to FI. Hotel of choice for Tiki Crawl.
Check out Mai Tai's post

A nicer hotel experience adn a little more spendy (I think) would be:

Coral Reef Inn & Suites
www.coralreefinn.com - (510) 545-4139

Marina Village Inn
www.marinavillageinn.com - (510) 523-9450

I second the Marina Village Inn for it location & service.

Although The Coral Reef Inn are suites w/kitchenettes, so if you are extending your stay, or have special dietary needs, they'd be the best bet.

The Marina Village Inn is nice, however, if you happen to be 6'15" like Doug Horne, the beds may be too short for you! I know Doug ended up moving to the Coral Reef Inn from Marina Village to get a bed long enough for his giant-sized stature!
