Tickets are now on sale for the annual Northwest Tiki Crawl, taking place in Portland the weekend of June 24, 2006. As with last year, there will be a special event mug created by Tikitronic. Special highlights this year include some new home bars on the Sunday home bar tour, a special preview of the not-yet-open Grass Skirt Thatch, Portland’s newest tiki bar, and a chance to spend time in the soon-to-be-closed Jasmine Tree. Of course, the Alibi alone is worth the trip to Portland. Here’s the schedule from the NW Tiki Crawl website:

Friday: Kick-Off Party at the infamous Castaway Cove, home of Tikimaxton & Pele. This will be for full weekend Crawlers only to get to know your fellow tikiphiles and enjoy the Cove’s famed hospitality. Food & drinks provided.

Saturday: There will be gatherings at Portland tiki bars: (soon to be closed!) Jasmine Tree and the venerable Alibi. Then the Tiki-Kon really gets going that evening at the Jupiter, with Bands! Vendors! Drinks! Socializing! Raffle with Fabulous Prizes! Mysterious Other Things! Full Weekend crawlers will also be treated to an EXCLUSIVE preview of Portland’s newest tiki bar, Grass Skirt (not yet open to the public!)

Sunday: A special Tiki-Kon Brunch at the Alibi, followed by The Original NW Tiki Home Bar Tour, which this year will include new home bars (transportation provided). The group will then return to the Jupiter for the weekend farewell – allowing more time for shopping, socializing, and maybe a little drinking at the nearby Doug Fir.

    Hooray! We’ve been informed that Grass Skirt will infact be called “Thatch” but I don’t think it matters much to the tikiphiles who just want to see it.

  2. Humuhumu Says:

    Thatch, eh? Hm, sounds a bit like a cut-rate porno mag. Or, the tiki answer to Hooters, perhaps. Not neccessarily inappropriate, given the whole phallus-worship angle of tikis.

  3. Tikimama Says:

    …and Portland’s #1 business: strip clubs!

    Does anyone know where to buy a home tiki or cantina style bar with stools in the portland vancouver area. I am creating a margaritaville theme in the large nook of my house
