Escape to Otto's Forbidden Island on

Saturday, Sept 27th at 9pm
(and continuing the last Sat of every month)

Oakland resident and tikinews editor, Otto von Stroheim, hosts this event at Conga Lounge, Oakland
where the mellow, haunting sounds of Exotica swirl around you while you imbibe the finest in Polynesian cocktails.
Try the house drink Gilligan's Island which is served in a headhunter Tiki mug or Don's Zombie or Vic's Mai Tai or Otto's Von Tiki!

There will be Tiki TV videos , a 50 cent raffle every hour, guest DJs Mano and Giancarlo
and to top it off, a Last Call Happy Hour 12:30 - 1:30 (all drinks half price)

Owners Michael and Mano love food, cocktails, and Tiki
They have perfected the food aspect over the years in their restaurant Cafe Rustica.
It is a rare treat for a Tiki bar to have such good food!
They have tested dozens of drink recipes and invented a couple of their own

admission free

climb a flight of stairs and find yourself in another world atop College Avenue in Rockridge
CONGA LOUNGE! - Upstairs at 5422 College Ave. Rockridge District, Oakland (510) 463-2681

I won the top prize in the raffle, which was two nights at the Caliente Tropics....Whoohoo! Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Pineapple!

So, I called the Tropics today to see if I could use it at Tiki Oasis, and they told me that they sold out a couple of weeks ago. So, I'll have to attend another time; no biggie.

But I still want to go to Tiki Oasis...can someone recommend a good cheap motel nearby, and/or is anyone looking for a roommate?

thanks!

Try the Travelodge next door to Caliente. It is a nifty mid-century motel and it is just a few steps away so you won't feel like you're missing out on too much.

I believe that Otto sent out an email saying that they could no longer recommend the Travelodge due to a large number of complaints after last year. Just an FYI.
