Tiki Oasis symposium: 90 Years of San Diego Tiki

Pages: 1 2 replies

It's almost that time, folks! Tiki Oasis San Diego is August 7-11, 2019 at the Hanalei Hotel (begrudgingly, the Crowne Plaza now).

The Good News

I will be giving a presentation based on my upcoming book, "Ninety Years of Classic San Diego Tiki, 1929-2018." Friday August 9th from 10:30am to Noon, in the Grand Hanalei Ballroom: Lagoon. Entry is included with Deluxe and Cocktail pass, otherwise $15.

Note: Times on the website is wrong ->10:30-12:00 is the correct time.

Join me in celebrating the history of Polynesian pop culture, tiki restaurants, bars and cuisine from San Diego and Tijuana. Learn more about the people who’ve brought us good times, food and exotic cocktails in tropical settings for over 90 years. I will share new research, urban archeological finds, and images in this fascinating visual survey.

The Bad News

The book is still in production, and will NOT be ready for distribution at Tiki Oasis. Aargh...

In any event, I hope to see and meet you all there!

Mucho Mahalo,
Martin S. Lindsay
