I finally have some time to post some much deserved 'THANK YOUS' to all who put together such a fun and exciting Tiki Crawl! Many thanks to the bartenders at the Alibi and the Jasmine Tree who worked so hard to cut up all that garnish fruit and mix all those Mai-Tais, Zombies, Blue Hawaiians, Banana Cabanas, and everything else us thirsty and demanding tikiers desired! Thank you so much to Lushy who was incredible on stage and has me now addicted to their music! Thanks to Kenike's Wahines who were so colorfully swaying and portraying authentic cultural and beautiful stories with their dance, smiles, and ball-swirling (you had to be there!), and a special thanks to the young male dancer for his traditional renditions of male hula! WOWZA! Thanks too to the Verbtones! Man, I love upbeat surf music...and what a nice incentive to keep me working on my super-fast surf-drumming skills (which aren't so super-fast right now)! Thanks to Selector Lopaka for the dj exoticatunes and especially for the cd collection he put together! How nice was that! Thanks to Tiki Farm for creating the NW Tiki Crawl mug! Thank you to the all the vendors who had wonderful and creatively made tiki drums, pendants, artwork, mugs, garden tikis and other offerings! I will definitely be contacting each of you after payday! Another thanks to those who donated cool and coveted items for the raffle! Some people have all the luck, but it was fun trying! Thank you to the owners of the Alibi and the Jasmine Tree for having us and keeping tiki alive in the Northwest! Many thanks to the tour bus company and especially the superb friendly bus driver for getting us all around metro-Portland safely! It ain't easy maneuvering a giant WikiWiki bus full of excited inebriated Hawaiian clad tiki junkies thru tight residential round-abouts! I can't thank the organizers of the Tiki Crawl enough...it was really really really really fun and so very well organized! And another gigantic thanks to all and their families (Mr. Tiki Bar, Maori Man, Melintur and Tiki Mama, and TikiMaxton) who opened their homes to us (many of us complete strangers to them...or just completely strange) and provided us with tasty tropical beverages and delectable mouth-watering pu-pus that kept us energized! Thanks to whoever for the excellent weather! Thanks to the Palms Motel for turning the neon sign on for us and providing us with clean towels! Thanks to Maori man, Tiki Vixen and Mr. Smiley for introducing us to Voodoo Donuts! Whatta trip! Thanks to Kingslod, Humuhumu, ExotiCat, and Monkeyskull for posting great pics on TC!
All in all, a terrific gathering of intelligent, humorous, fun-loving, generous, talented, zombie-swilling, recumbent-bike-ridin, tiki-loving, polynesian-pop people. Last weekend convinced me that TCers (and wildlife biologists) are the best people around! AND if you all are EVER in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area, send me a note at
pluckybird@yahoo.com
Cheers to you all! Kris (Kalikiana) and Eric (we will call him...ManuMan).

Bruce,
I enjoyed your Portland photos and your holiday pics from Las Vegas as well. Did you go into the Portland Outdoor Store? I bought a great western shirt there last month
after observing happy hour around the corner at Dan and Louie's Oyster Bar. Drinking and shopping...look out!

They had some vintage/dead stock pants I was tempted to buy until I saw the extra high price. Walked out empty handed.

OK... So these might be a little bit late, but better late than never.
Here are some pics from the NW Tiki Crawl planning party.(shhh 2004)

I'm really wondering if anyone has any pics from the 2005 Home bar tour.
We were so busy hosting that we left our cameras in cases.
There were a mess of pictures that were up on one of the posts about the NW Tiki Crawl 2005 but the links are all dead. Humuhumu's are still there, but if anyone has any pics from 2004 or 2005 NW Tiki Crawls please post them.
Thanks
Mark



Mr. Smiley and Tiki Vixen had decided to grace us in Portland with an appearance,


of course there was extreme karaoke.

and then things got blurry....



No flash + 3 Mai Tai's=this
