Sadly, we aren’t able to make it to Tiki Oasis this year — work is getting in the way. This is the first Oasis I’ve missed in the past four years, and it feels strange to not be joining the tiki hordes in the festivities. There are a whole bunch of Bay Area folks in the same boat this year, and we’re going to have our own Poor Man’s Tiki Oasis at Forbidden Island in Alameda, both Friday and Saturday nights. If you can’t make it to Oasis this year, too, come on out and join us. You’ll quickly forget you’re missing anything when you realize you’re sitting in the best tiki bar this side of the Mississippi.
