Okay, this is it. We're calling it the NW Tiki Crawl even though it's just a tiny little spark of a crawl this time around and we're going to a polka fest as part of it, but you gotta start somewhere, right?

So the plan is this: Saturday May 3 we meet at 5:00 Mr. Tiki Bars fabulous basement tiki bar in Portland (directions forthcoming from Mr. Bar) for drinks.

At 7ish we head to the Norse Hall to partake of the madness that is Polka de Mayo, featuring the bay area's own Polkacide. After a couple of hours of polka and big hair we'll probably all need a mai tai, so at 9 we'll move on to Jasmine Tree for drinks and snacks. A little JT goes a long way, so at 10-10:30 we'll make our way to The Alibi, where we'll finish the evening's festivities - sorry, but I just won't be ready to open Castaway Cove before the June 7 Season Opener, so you'll just have to wait.

We'll have maps to all the various locations for all of you out of towners, but you'll be on your own for transportation.

Please let us know if you're coming, where you're staying and at what point you think you'll be joining us so we can be prepared. Mr. Tiki Bar, anything to add to this?

This is going to be a BLAST!

I'll be there! This is the first real stop on my road trip. I'm not sure yet where I'll be staying, probably someplace close to the Alibi.

We will be set for Saturday (Whoops) evening. Tikitronic and Kim believe they are in, tikiwahine is in, and Seamus, a Tiki News reader hopes to make it in from Waldport.
Several of mrtikibar's polka chums will round things off. So what to wear?
Any word from Woofmutt? How about you other NW tikiheads?
My address is on Baxdog's Tiki News post about the crawl. If you are coming in on I-5 from the north, take the OMSI / City Center exit. Stay left and get on SE Belmont St. Take Belmont to 20th ave. Turn south (right)and travel to Hawhorne Blvd. Turn left and go 2 blocks to 22nd ave. Turn right and in about 3 blocks you are our place at 2204 SE Harrison St. It is 5-10 minutes from the freeway exit depending on traffic.
Before I forget, thanks to Mig and the other experts for their organization tips.

See you guys soon. So Maxton, should we just play it by ear for transportation? At this late date that might be best. I will put some maps together.

humuhumu,
The Palms Motor Hotel is across the street and up a block from the Alibi. All I know about it is it has a great sign and it probably was pretty busy before the freeway went in.
3801 N Interstate Ave; 503-287-5788.

Although I can hardly wait for the crawl to start, we will, in fact, have to wait until SATURDAY (not Friday). John, give me a call tonight (or I'll call you) and we'll touch base.

Thanks for the hotel tip, that sounds perfect! Now, where can I find a barkcloth dirndl at this late hour?

'stinct possibility I could make this...But I'll skip the polka for more Alibi time.

Ms H: I've picked up $30 rooms at the dwntn Sheraton (nice, not lux, and easy access to all points Portland) on pricline...Of course with priceline there's no guarantee where you end up. The Palms has a swell sign but looks a little dive-esque. On the other hand it's a short stumble from the Alibi.

Woof, I'm glad there's a possibility you can make it - you've been a stranger to Stumptown for far too long. No surprise to me that you'll pass on Polka - had a feeling it wasn't your cuppa...

For those of you who are prepared to wrestle the beast that is Polka de Mayo, I just saw a brief teaser on the local news - looks like it's gonna be a HOOT! Kind of a cross between the Polish Festival, Tony & Tina's Wedding and the Dada Ball. Ten points if you understand all three references... This could be the first Tiki Crawl to warrant a mid-evening costume change! Check out the link for details:

I am bummed that I am finding out about this too late. My sister lives on the Oregon Coast so I drive through Portland (from the Seattle area) every now and then. I'd love to attend a tiki function this year and meet some of you. I hope you upload some pics so I can see what I missed...

Exoticat, that is a bummer. As is finding the perfect site for purchasing tiki-polka wear a little late.

Mr. Tikibar, I just went and briefly perused through the member photos to see what you look like. You have a picture of you from 1960, so one can only imagine what you look like now as you jump through the time machine into 2003. Any recent pics anywhere? If I end up in your basement someday, I'll need your pic or an FBI background check first. snerk.

I do want to say that I thought it interesting that you posted that pic from your childhood as I think the tiki obsession has its roots in something that happened to each of us then. Well, maybe not ALL of us, but those of us who grew up in the 60's or 70's probably had some experience that we can blame this on. I'm still trying to pinpoint what happened to me and wonder if someday I'll stumble across and old picture of me with a tiki. Did they have tikis at Pixieland? (this is a test) I should have a raging obsession with Pixies based on that, but don't. ha

Anyways, have fun tonight...wish I could be there! Sorry the weather changed today...maybe it's nicer in Portland. We have a bit of drizzle with the sun trying to push through the overcast clouds. It shouldn't rain if you have to crawl around on the ground.

Ok, here I am with valid ID in hopes of being allowed into your basment someday. You care about this because I have a basement that YOU might want into one day.

There actually is a current pic of Kitty and I on page 5 of the member photos thread.
Fun was had last night. Kitty lost her glasses but I obtained a bowling ball. I say it's a wash.

That was a spectacular evening, even if we did get a little scattered about the city by the end.

Thank you especially to Mr Tiki Bar - your basement is a beautiful environment - I am envious and inspired to do more with our apartment.

I have pictures, but I'm not entirely clear on how to add them to the image gallery as an album instead of 30 individual pictures. I'll post again when I figure that out, (but if anyone knows, feel free to tell me).
