I noticed that the San Diego City Beat magazine has a full page ad for an event called "CityBeat Presents TikiBeat - The Official Start of Summer Pool Party." It's going to be Friday, May 11 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm at the Lafayette Hotel, 2223 El Cajon Blvd.

I've no idea how "tiki" this event will be. It lists live music, DJs, fashion show, art show, and more. And it doesn't say what the cost is, only that tickets will be available the night of the event only.

Just throwin' it out there.

Thanks for posting about this! I went to both the Lafayette website and the CityBeat website to look for more info (such as the ticket price), but with no luck--this doesn't even show up in their own event listings, which is odd. But I did find the ad in the online version of the issue, if anyone is interested:

I'll be there to check it out. However if it turns out not to be as tiki as I expected, or if I start to get a distinct age-inappropriate feeling, my visit will end.

I thought it was pretty good, and my friends seemed to have a good time. It's a cool place for a pool party, and It was a good turnout with a really mixed crowd - rockabilly, tiki-philes, hipsters, and people who seemed like they really weren't sure why they were there. Nothing especially "tiki" about the event. Secret Samurai were really good, and the burlesque show was fun.

I think the funniest moment of the evening for me was when I went to one of the pool bars. Noticing that they had a few rums I asked what tropical drinks the bartender could make. He repled, "I can make a mai tai." I hesitantly said OK. He then proceeded to pour every fruit juice he had (pineapple, orange, cranberry, and god knows what else), plus a couple of rums, into a cup. I just had to laugh.
