Tiki Oasis (Sunday at least...)

I don't know what it is, but I am never motivated to go to Tiki Oasis. You'd think I would be because it is a weekender that takes place here in San Diego. It just never sounds really exciting to me. Maybe its been the themes. Maybe its that I haven't been financially able to go (until recently). Or maybe I've just been too busy or lazy. I guess its all of the above.

Anyways, Fernando's band played the car show on Sunday so we made it out for that day at least. I had planned on wearing my fabulous 40s rayon Hawaiian shorts. When I put them on though, I realized that I bought these when I was about 10-15lbs heavier. Needless to say they didn't fit. I was running late so I threw on a dress I purchased recently from Kim and headed out the door.

Even though I wasn't decked out in Hawaiian I got a lot of compliments on my dress. I really do love it! Plus, it goes perfectly with my Miss L Fire wedges.

The car show was quite small. Only a few cars. I got drunk on rum and had a great time though. I got to see my San Francisco and LA friends too which made the day a lot of fun. Monica and I went through the vendors but didn't find anything. It was a lot of 60s Hawaiian. The few vendors that had 40s and 50s were asking a lot of $$. Oh well. I think I have plenty of Hawaiian at this point!

We stuck around to see Elvez and Big Sandy and Fernando and I even got some jiving in to DJ Okie Oran.

This girl was Miss Tiki Oasis and she performed with Elvez. She was super cute. Elvez is a trip!! If you ever get the chance to see him definitely do!!

My SF crew. So good to see them!

It was fun to finally go to Tiki Oasis but I am not sure I would make a whole weekend out of it in the future. I wish there were more bands I guess. The venue is great though and would be perfect for a rockabilly weekender. I didn't get a picture of the pool but it was really pretty. All the rooms have balconies too, looking over the pool area. I had fun though and got to see my friends so all in all it was a successful day out.
