The Pineappleman's Tiki Bucket List

Here is my Tiki Bucket List.

1 & 2.  Palm Springs Trip........ 

1. SHAG Store 

I absolutely love SHAG's artwork. The playful Tiki, Retro and Disney artwork in its vibrant colors is right up my alley.    Below is one of the SHAG related things I got this year for Christmas. 
 I have some SHAG  drink glasses  and several books of his artwork, shirts and Haunted Mansion coasters, etc.   We love seeing him out and about at Tiki Oasis every year so it is a no brainer that my Tiki bucket list includes a trip to Palm Springs to visit the SHAG store.

and  the new Palm Springs  2. Tonga Hut

We have been planning a Wine vacation up to the Russian River Valley with a stop over in San Francisco where we hope to mark off a couple of Tiki spots from our bucket list.

5.  Aulani
 And currently the whole family is dying to head out to the Disney Resort Aulani.  It is Disney and Polynesian and therefore a most see for us.

Anyway....that is our must see Tiki Bucket list for now.
What is on your list?   Feel free to share here or over on my Pineappleman Tiki page.

Dropping By the Bali Hai---Post Oasis

Since we always miss out on all of the Thursday night Tiki Oasis  fun.....We decided to drop by the Bali Hai and maybe have a little lunch before heading back up the coast on Sunday after we packed up.

Tiki Dock

 They had a big Sunday brunch going on which we weren't really in the mood for at the time so we just took a few pictures and then  headed up the coast for a lunch on the beach.  Hopefully next year we can finally make it down for Thursday night

Tiki Song of the Week: Skurkarna - "The Reckless Villain"

Here is my pick for the Tiki Song of the Week

Tiki Room 50th Anniversary: The Pineappleman gets a new shirt

While out at the park the other day we stopped by the shop at the bank on Main Street and saw that there are still some leftovers from the Tiki Room 50th anniversary event that you can pick up.
I had to get the latest Tiki Room SHAG shirt seen below. 

They also had some cool Disney Mugs still available along with some Art work and cool Shag Tiki Room coasters.

I'm really wishing I had the funds to go wild in here.....but the shirt was all I could get for now.   I really wanted this cool Aloha Isle Adventureland sign.

The Worst Things about Tiki Oasis (Don't let the Title Fool You) Part 3

Saturday afternoon with all the things on our checklist that we could get to without clones...we prepared for the vendor clear out lawn spot rush.   This year we didn't rush for the front and instead slowly made our way to the back....Aku approved.

Up first the Cheap Leis... Not our favorite of the bands

Time for Hullabilly Costume Contest.

Acapulco Radio a band from across the Atlantic Ocean---over in that place called Europe.   The music for the evening got more to our liking.

Tiki Oasis wouldn't be Tiki Oasis without a Crazy Al dancing moment

The Worst things about Tiki Oasis Number 6 
Who invited Hula Dancers to a Hullabilly party.   Seriously can we please stay within the theme people.

AKU Awakens for the night life

The Worst things about Tiki Oasis Number 7  
The green car at the car show had it right "FIRE BAD"

On a different Note:    The Hula Girls  Very Good.   One of my favorite Tiki Oasis bands returned to the main stage and put on an amazing show.

The Worst things about Tiki Oasis Number 8
FREE BEER!   We told our friends about this odd idea and they made their way to a room that had FREE BEER.   

The final main stage act for the night we caught from back up on the balcony and they were great as well. 
Southern Culture on the Skids. 


And Go-Go Dancers

Of course the Party never ends after the main show as the room crawls just get going.   

Ding Dong Devils

The Worst things about Tiki Oasis Number 9
Midnight Burlesque......Why...Why you have to wait until midnight.

A Sword Swallower........Sure to break the ice at naughty parties

How many times do I have to say it.

The Worst things about Tiki Oasis Number 10
Missing out on the Sunday morning 5K because for the first time in my life I slept through my alarm.......I guess staying up until 3:30 am is not good for a 6:30 5K.  Sorry I missed out

Until Next YEAR!
