Who wants to join Mr Smiley for (and buy me )some drinks at Minnie's in Modesto?? Be there at 9 pm Friday July 9, 2004.
Out of town guests may want to stay across the street at The Chalet Motel. It is ok-not fancy and rooms run about $50 a night. (Chalet Motel 115 Downey Ave , Modesto 209-529-4370)

Why, YES! I would love to! I just looked at a map, and by golly, besides having the extreme pleasure of ringing in a birthday with Mr. Smiley, I get to hit all KINDS of tiki along Hwy 99 that I haven't seen before... The Tropics! Luau! Minnie's! The Leilani! Coconut Joe's!

If I head out of town at 4pm (like a bat out of hell), what time can I reasonably expect to land in Modesto?

Is the Tropics reasonably safe? Or is it look-don't-touch?

Why is my teleporter broken? I will lift a mai tai and hoist in a westerly direction on the 9th, Mr Smiley!

we'll be there!


if anyone needs a place to stay, we can offer up our guest room. its a full size bed and yer own bathroom. the only stipulation is not minding a roaming fat cat that likes to sleep on some people's heads (he is really friendly, we swear!) we live about 10 minutes away from minnie's.
first to claim gets to stay!

Was that your lucky "666" birthday post, MrSmiley?!

Of course I, as Mr Smiley's glamourous chauffeur, will also be bringing the banana cake!!!

Humu, both the Chalet and the Tropics are roughly equivalent (in terms of the sleazy 'n shabby factor) to the Palms in Portland, although the signage is sadly inferior in both cases.

We used to think the Chalet would be a bit less dicey but last time we were there I concluded otherwise. I mean really, it was just the last straw when I realized the two halves of our toilet paper holder didn't match, lol.

However, I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable at either place, and I never saw a bug either. The Tropics is actually slightly cleaner, I think, though wretchedly beaten-up inside; the outside looks good. And, of course, there IS another Tiki bar on the premises...

Mostly, now, it's just a question of which requires fewer steps to stagger to one's room from Minnie's. The Chalet IS right across the street. But Humu, if you wanna stay at the Tropics we will too! Tropics Party, everyone!!!hee hee. I imagine it'd take a lot to get thrown outta there.

Tikicleen, we would love to stay with you guys and Chester meowmeow! but I think the staggering-across-the-street thing will come heavily into play this weekend. Maybe another time? I'll bring snacks and catnip...

See y'all Friday! JT, you're coming right??

Oh, the drive from LA to Modesto SHOULD take about five to six hours, depending on traffic and how magnificently you burn up the road. It's about 300 miles, give or take ten.

Aw, JT, I just caught up on the Whanga Rei stuff...LOVE that name, by the way. Because of MrSmiley's work, we can't get out to Modesto much before nine. Which doesn't really leave time for both--maybe--up to him--but is WR open Saturday day? I'd love to see it, and your carvings there! If not this trip, SOON...

I wish I could make it.
It's very hard for me to get a Friday or Saturday night off (bartender).
You know I'll be there in spirit.
I will toast your birthday at my bar.
Happy Birthday Mr. Smiley!

Bummer, I'll be in Modesto the 8th (on my way to Tahoe for the weekend). We're making a pitstop to go to Minnie's and the Tiki Lounge. Would have loved to hook up on the 9th! Happy B-Day anyway....Matt

Hey MrSmiley, the Pineapples would love to attend, but will be busy laughing at people's funny accents on the Jersey Shore. Have a swell one!

And hey, what's up with a motel that doesn't take reservations? Oh, I get it....

Yes-it is hard to figure out reservations for a place that rents room by the hour!
