Wellll....would that convince all to move the tour to Saturday? Not that Sam's is sooooo great, but where else to go late? From Ben's research there seems to be a serious problem to find any joint that is open later than 10:00/11:00 p.m. on Friday. That means we would start the tour at 5:00 p.m.????
Please post who would do Saturday also, and who would have probs with that...




I'm fine with Friday or Saturday!

Aloha All,

Here's a suggestion:

I took the liberty of calling Duke's. Last call in the Barefoot Bar is 12:30 am! If we started at Sam's, made our way to Li's, then the Royal Hawaiian, we could close down Duke's and be within striking distance of Ben's parking lot. I agree with Ben, Duke's has a most impressive display of koa -- not overly tiki, but very cool. By then we should be seeing our own tiki apparitions, anyway! We'll also be right on the beach.

There's my 2 cents! I'm good on Friday or Saturday.

Cheers,

Uncle Arty

Ya,
Main St. in H.B. stays open till 1:30 or so. Aloha grill is cool, Dukes is cool and there is a place called Freds that totally goes off in a mexican way if anyone wants tequllia!. Lot's of bars on main st. So there's no worries on more drinking (just not much tiki but a lots of surf culture) Mrs. bamboo said, "why don't you all crash out in the store." Ya right, we'll be up all night talking and laughing!. That's why I suggested the parking lot. But, the store will be open to us going so if we want to crash out inside, it's cool.

Sven, I havn't been into King Neptunes for years. Bummer on the old museum they had. They had a cool collection.
p.s. I think Friday is good cause the hangover will be gone by Monday. Anyone else get 2 day hangovers?

P.S.,
Mrs. Bamboo just said, "We all have to be cleared out of the store by 9:58 Sat. a.m. (she opens at 10:00) so, it sounds like the store will be "camp OC mini crawl" for those not wanting the risk!" Bring your blankie!! We've slept there a few times and it's cozy. And, there's a lot of Bars, (Unstocked though)a bathroom with a sink, a queen bamboo bed, a twin bamboo bed, a floor, a cd 5 disc, lot's o thatch , bamboo and cars driving by that if you try hard enough (shouldn't be hard after that night) can sound like a waterfall! If anyone enjoys saw dust, they can sleep in the work shop across the lot!! Will be fun. Anyone from L.A. coming whos want's to beat traffic, come early and hang out. I'll just be building bars. You can play with bamboo!

Sounds great, I'll bring ear plugs to drown out the drunken snoring. (Mine, that is)
So let's stick with Friday the 13th...the 12th, I mean.
We need to recruit some more passengers, n'est pas?

Slumber party at Bens! I want to leave the office early on Friday and I'd love to hang at the store and watch the master at work. I want to beat rush hour traffic so I will probably leave mid-afternoon. Question: How long does it take to get down there from WLA at that time of day on a Friday?

BigBro!

I can't do Saturday night because my surf club - San Onofre Surf Club - is having their big ass yearly luau at Old Man's. It goes off! Let's try to keep it to Saturday. Ben said the bus rates are $49/hour for a 5 hour minimum. We can find plenty of places to drink in HB. After I talk with Ben today, he or I will post the address to his shop and the meeting time on Friday.

Aloha

Floratina,

If you leave mid-afternoon it should take you about an 1 hour and 15 or an hour and half at most.

Hey Ben,

thanks for offering up your Bamboo Temple! We live pretty close, so it may not be necessary but it's nice to have options, especially in DUI country. Sounds like great fun and we're looking forward to it!

Aloha and mahalo!

Arty

Hey Big Bro,
We used to torture my brother when he snored. We'd take little tiny t.p. balls and rest then on his upper lip. When it was inhale time the t.p. balls would disapear up his nose!!. I do believe we are semi grown up now and all snore so that won't happen at "Camp OC-Mini Crawl" I hope. We need muzak on the bus. Anyone have a portable disc thingy with batteries? And, the cool tunes to go along with it? Dang, I used to have one of those "suit-case bar set ups" but sold it a while ago. Anyone have one of those? Might come in handy on the bus. Is anyone up to wearing Tiki Medallions around their necks? Like the rappers, but tikis? We can personalize them before we leave depending on who shows up. Let me know and I'll bust em' out. Name tags are so corny!! (lol)And, they will be a momento of the crawl and camp out. And, they make a good weapon carved out of a 2x4 with coco nut rope!!!!! Swing!! Wack!!! My nose!!!!! Have a safe and insane 4th of July.

I think I can come up with the portable tunes....!
