Last June was my 14th year attending Hukilau (tiki festival in Fort Lauderdale). This year I decided to check out Tiki Oasis, the west coast tiki fest. And it was amazing! The hotel it’s held at was absolutely charming, draped in watefalls, spindly palms and rock alcoves. Everyone I met was friendly and warm. Artists were open and chatty. The music, both DJs and bands, was non stop and created a 60’s swanky vibe all weekend. I came home with beautiful new tiki mugs, accessories, records and even a tiki comic/recipe book.
Since I was in San Diego on Sunday I couldn’t spin records with my tiki mugs. Instead I spent the day with my brother, Arion, who flew down from Palo Alto. We shopped the tiki vendors at Tiki Oasis and then had dinner at Bali Hi (open since 1954). Awesome way to spend a Sunday!
Retro-fabulous illustration from the back cover of Hawaii/William Kealoha LP. And dig the shape of the text!

Primitiva • Martin Denny • 1959.
Classic exotica, one of my fave Denny LPs. Buddhist Bells is an interesting take on Asian exotica.
