I just got word that my friend Monica from Seattle might be able to come down and join me for the NW Crawl. Some of you may remember her from the first Tiki Taix. She's great fun, I hope she can make it!

Just a couple of reminders: Tickets are available IN ADVANCE ONLY and only on the website (www.nwtiki.com). Also, be sure and put your name on the mailing list when you visit the site, so you'll know about updates and changes as soon as they happen!

Hurry - the free mugs are going fast!

Greetings and Aloha again everyone!

---Reminder!---

Don't forget that you can only buy your Crawl tickets in advance, and only
at
www.nwtiki.com. The free mugs are going fast, so get your tickets now
while they're still available!

---Posters and Postcards!---

We now have Crawl posters and postcards that we're busily distributing and
posting to various businesses that we think might be frequented by tiki
freaks. If you have (or know of) a business that might proudly (and
effectively) display our shameless (but visually stunning) self-promotion,
let me know and I'll make sure to get some material out.

--- Home Bar Profile: Ahi Lua! ---

We have added our first 'Home Tiki Bar Profile' to the nwtiki.com website!
This time
we're focusing on Ahi Lua, home to Mr Tiki Bar of Tiki Central.

http://www.nwtiki.com/AhiLua.html

--- Kenike's Wahines ---

We're very pleased to announce the addition of Kenike's Wahines Polynesian
Review to
our entertainment line up! We've added images and a full description here :

http://www.nwtiki.com/Kenike.html

--- Hotel Suggestions ---

After our last announcement, several of you wrote and asked for hotel/motel
suggestions. So far we've got the following (in the general vicinity of
the Jasmine
Tree) :

Days Inn - 1414 SW 6th Avenue - 503.221.1611
www.daysinn.com

Double Tree Hotel - 310 SW Lincoln - 1.503.221.0450
www.doubletree.com

The Mark Spencer Hotel - 409 SW 11th Avenue - 1.800.548.3934
www.markspencer.com

Downtown Value Inn - 415 SW Montgomery - 503.226.4751
www.downtownvalueinn.com

That's all for today - we should have images up this weekend for the NW
Tiki Crawl 2004 Mug!

Mahalo!

Note: This newsletter goes out to those on the NW Tiki mailing list AND
the Tiki Central NW Territiory Event mailing list. It's also posted on the
Events forum of Tiki Central, so you may receive duplicate copies if
you're on all those lists. Sorry for the inconvenience - just trying to
get the word out...

The Mallory Hotel is as close to the Jasmine Tree as the Mark Spencer. It is at 729 SW 15th Ave.

The Doubletree and the Downtown Value Inn are very close to the Jasmine Tree which will be handy for stumbling to bed purposes after the Saturday festivities. They are both also near the riverfront, downtown and cheap transit.
Here are a couple other close places that may be less expensive. I don't know anything about them other tham they are close to this same area.

4th Avenue Motel
1889 SW 4th Ave
PORTLAND, OR 97201 - 5303
(503) 226-7646

6th Avenue Motel
2221 SW 6th Ave
PORTLAND, OR 97201 - 4912
(503) 226-2979

On the eastside there is a Motel 6 on SE Powell Blvd that is close in. Maybe a 6 or 7 minute drive from the Jasmine Tree.
Motel 6
3104 SE Powell Blvd
Portland, OR 97202
Phone: (503) 238-0600

The Mallory Hotel has a classic feel and great bar (the Driftwood Lounge).

and yet one more link.

I think the Mallory is a good choice. Cool bar and historic atmosphere.
If you pm me (and ask nicely) I can get you my husband's corporate rate on two very nice hotels in Portland. Both are like apartments and have a kitchen and separate bedroom/ living room. Both are in NW Portland. One is walking distance and the other is on the trolley line that will take you directly to the Jasmine Tree.

"...I see the list of hotels, but
does anyone have an opinion on where to stay?"
I just survived two nights at the Palms Motel a block away from the Alibi. If you don't have high-falutin' tastes and can stand a mildly(but not really that bad) dive motel with an INCREDIBLE neon sign, I recommend the Palms--expect to pay $40 for a standard room. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. The motel (like the Alibi) is located on a new street car line that heads into downtown. I would stay at the motel again. It all depends on your tastes, though.

Hello Everyone - this is just a quick announcement to reveal the customized 'NW Tiki Crawl 2004' Tiki Mug, by Tiki Farm. http://www.nwtiki.com/mug.html This is the mug you get for free if you're one of the first 40 people to buy a full-package ticket. There are still some free mugs left, so hurry and order your tickets today!

Also - as a few people have asked - we wanted to clarify that tickets are only
available online and IN ADVANCE.

That's the news for today - we'll have a photo layout of Castaway Cove online in a
few days!
Mahalo!

Tiki Crawl Update:

Aloha everyone!

Reminder: The free mugs are going fast - get yours by being among the first 40 to purchase tickets to the event at
www.nwtiki.com!

We'd like to announce the addition of our 'Castaway Cove' page to nwtiki.com. It can
be viewed at http://www.nwtiki.com/Cove.html

Castaway Cove, home bar to TikiMaxton, is one of the delightful locations you'll see on the 2004 NW Tiki Crawl Home Bar Tour! Seats on the Home Bar Tour Bus are limited, and at this time they're only available with the purchase of a full Crawl Pass, so if you want to be sure to see some of Portland's finest Home Tiki Bars, get your tickets right away! Sorry, but nobody will be allowed on the Home Bar Tour unless they're on the bus.

Thank you, and we hope to see you at the crawl!

Cool, looks like there's going to be a pretty good turnout. Just got confirmation that my friend Monica is coming, too.

If you're thinking of coming (and you should be -- I've been to most of these places and met most of these people, and this weekend is not to be missed), better get your tickets pronto!
