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.

  2. You looked fabulous as always! That dress is just gorgeous! And I am living for your shoes! You always have the best shoes! Nevertheless, I am glad you had fun!

    I have wanted to go to Tiki Oasis for a while. Next year, I really want to make an effort to actually go. This year in June, I did the Hukilau and even though it was fun for the most part (I only went two nights), I do not think I would want to do the whole thing (ie Thurs to Sun).

  3. I was so drunk when I ran into you that I think I was blabbering when I introduced myself :)

    I have gone to Tiki Oasis 4 years in a row and I love it. I have to say this year was not as much fun as in the year's past but I personally think it was the Hulabilly theme. It is not meant to be Viva Las Vegas Junior and many people there acted like it was which was a total downer. All of us regulars were saying how next year's beatnik theme is going to really throw the rockabilly kids for a loop since they will not be in their element at all.

    Friday and Saturday nights are the best..the Sunday events are new and every year they add more to have people stick around until Monday morning.
    It was great to have El Vez and Big Sandy play. Miss Tiki Oasis was Tana the Tattooed Lady--I honestly had never heard her sing before and I thought she was fabulous.

    The best thing about this year was the weather...last year it was so hot we were all melting--it was so nice to have it comfortable for once.

    I am glad you got to check it out at least :)
