Tiki Ti
Tonga Hut
Tiki No
Puka Bar
Purple Orchid
Don the Beachcombers
Trader Vic's at Beverly Hills
Trader Vics at LA Downtown
Bahooka's
Damiens

What am I missing?

San Francisco has one each year and their list is a slightly less overwhelming.

It's not so much as who's in, it's who's going to front the money for a chartered bus (and be responsible for herding drunken cats) ??

Telescopes, I nominate you for that job.

As a school bus driver back in the 80's driving children with special needs, I might be qualified to drive the bus (lol) but.... I want to drink.

I think if we had real interest, it wouldn't be a problem to get a group of hardened tiki cats to commit to something like this:

Thursday: (the 405)

Dinner at Trader Vics LA
Beverly Hills Trader Vic
Purple Orchid

Friday: Hollywood

Dinner at Bahookas
Tiki No
Tonga Hut
Tiki Ti

Saturday: (The Beaches)

Cocktails at Puka Bar
Don the Beachcomber's with some type of show.


What do you think?

I had thought about doing one a few years ago,
but nobody wanted to help me.
So I dropped the idea.

I like the idea of a LA Crawl. This is something that many of us have talked about doing for years. Yes, the chartering of the bus seems daunting, but it sounds like it could be a fun time.

I don't think I have time to be an organizer but I'd love to be an attendee.

Below is a modified version of your suggested schedule just to show some options. I'm sure a thousand tweaks would have to be done before we got something that everyone thought would work best. I tried to work in The Warehouse, Beachcomber's Cafe, and Royal Hawaiian. Also, I thought Bahooka's is a long hike away from the rest of the Friday events, so I made it the start and not the finish of the evening since Bahooka's closes at 10 and the other bars are open later.

THURSDAY on The West Side

Meet at Beverly Hills Trader Vics to lounge by the pool and have cocktails to start the day around 12:00 noon.
Late lunch at The Warehouse in Marina Del Rey at 2:00.
Cocktails at the Purple Orchid at 4:00.
Dinner at downtown Trader Vic's around 7:00 till 10:00 close.

FRIDAY in LA and Hollywood

Lunch at Bahooka's in Rosemead around 1:00.
Tiki Ti in Los Angeles for cocktails at 4:00.
Dinner at Damon's in Glendale around 6:30.
Tonga Hut in North Hollywood at 8:30.
Tiki No in North Hollywood at 10:00 till close.

SATURDAY at the Beaches

Park at Crystal Cove parking and take shuttle across PCH to Beachcomber Cafe for 11:30 breakfast.
Late lunch at the Royal Hawaiian at 2:30.
Cocktails at Puka Bar at 4:30.
Dinner at Don the Beachcombers at 7:00 till close.

There are companies that provide bus, driver and host.

This is probably not the right one but an example of what's out there.

Big Red Bus

I'm guessing the reason for no crawl is that the above sounds like the normal Saturday in SoCal

Okay, here's what I've found so far-

A coach bus with 58 seats seems to run at the high side - $900 dollars for one day.

If 50 people signed up for a three day tour that would be 2700/50 = $54 dollars a person.

This seems reasonable for three days of hard crawling with a Sunday left to recuperate before the real grind of work starts.

Now - what is the most tiki hotel left...

Now that I am thinking, we could have the bus stop at several "way-points" each day so that we can see the ghosts of tiki past.

I would skip the Royal Hawaiian as Laguna Beach is a little too far away.

On that note, some of those places are still bars that you can drink in. Example, Mar Vista Bowl (which used to house the Mai Kai room) and Fantasy Island (former Kelbo's). Are there any more ??

And just for argument's sake, you might want to add the Hawaiian Room in Bellflower to the agenda...

Good luck, I wanted to do a Frank Bowers dive bar crawl but no one was interested.

A bus is the key.

I would add the Hawaiian Room, but pass on the others.

Can Oceanic Arts be added somehow?
