Got it!

I am going to try to be there too. Hopefully I will make it, most likely solo.

I'm planning to be there sometime after 9:00, probably closer to 9:30. Might have a friend with me. I've met Treg so hopefully he'll be there and that will allow me to find y'all. I've got a full red beard and long hair.

Is it packed and what do the mugs look like and I don't think that I have to ask this, but I know the drinks are good...

Went last night to Polite Provisions with a few friends. Saw a few other TC people there. The cockails I had were very good. And for a pharmacy-themed bar they made some effort to bring in a one-night tiki theme: masks on the walls, leis, drinks served in tiki mugs. Having said that, while I went, I don't feel a strong need to go back for the next Tiki Tuesday on June 11. Here's a photo of my Dr. Funkenstein cocktail.

I went as well. I think I got there later than most people, I didn't see too many familiar faces. I tried 4 of their drinks, 3 were from the guest bartender. The drinks were decent, my favorite being the Dr Funkenstein. Not too tiki decorated, but they did have some tiki on their playlist.

Lots of hipsters (to be expected) but most people were not drinking the tiki drinks. I had a good time and stayed for a couple hours. I wouldn't mind trying some of their regular menu drinks sometime, and I might go back for another tiki night. They did have a big menu of tiki drinks and none that we ordered were undrinkable. I would say that they might have the best tiki tuesday in San Diego if they keep it up.

Went last night as well, drinks were OK but the music was excellent; mostly Les and Yma. Spent most of the time at Soda & Swine where you could actually listen to the music (at the bar it was drowned out by people yelling at each over the noise of other people yelling at each other) and have a smoked pork meatball astonishingly similar to Kalua Pork!

Best moment was when the table of hipsters next to us were listening to the obviously never-before-heard Exotica and digging it, and one said "I feel like dancing!" with a big smile, weaving to the vibes.

Great place to drop off Oasis flyers...

Great seeing a few familiar faces (Derek Mitchell, Miss Hell) & meeting Brad & new folks. It was a busy night at Polite Provisions (most days normally are, I think), and it was an "interesting" mix of folks. Obviously, PP isn't a tiki bar, and while the added decor (tiki mask, TF mugs, and leis galore) wouldn't be my first choice, it was a good first try. Waits for drinks weren't short- but if you've ever been to Smugglers' Cove you'd think it was fast.

Well poured cocktails, including more than the usual tiki drink standards (bonus points for thinking outside the (rum) box)- but I agree with Cammo, watching other San Diegans dig on music and tiki drinks was the best part. I suspect there will be a few tiki bars (of varying styles) popping up in town in the relative future.

Anyone going tonight? I'm off work early enough to make it by 9:00, so I might go if anyone else is.

Never had a good one on a plane, had free ones, but no good ones.
