Tiki Oasis 11, South of the Border, a four-day long celebration of all things tiki, takes place August 18-21, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in San Diego. Produced by Baby Doe and Otto Von Stroheim of Tiki News, this year’s Tiki Oasis is a “Retro Tijuana-style Tiki Party” complete with a “Burros, Black Velvets and Other Delights” art show, a Whipped Cream Girl Pin-up Photo Contest (à la Herb Alpert’s Whipped Cream and Other Delights album cover), and lots of great performances, music and vendors. If you are headed to the event, don’t miss rockabilly crooner, Big Sandy, perform with the lucha libre mask-wearing surf rockers, Los Straitjackets, as that’s sure to be a great show.
Event tickets are still available but Crowne Plaza Hotel rooms are sold out.
