Making Time.....My weekly diary as a full time working mother who always finds the time to be a once in awhile party goer, occasional night clubber, all around wine and Diner, swank cocktail party frequenter, and a lover of all things from the mid century.

Tiki O ..Sat Night...Till next year..
Saturday started off pretty great at Tiki O
A group of us headed over to the waffle House and had a nice breakfast to start the day
Once we got back we mixed up some drinks in the room and headed right back to the pool..people were already putting their seats up for the afternoon entertainment
We had a much bugger crowd of friends on Saturday joining us in the pool and drank LOTS
This guy was walking around all weekend with a stack of boxes that read death laser parts ...he was asking everyone if they knew where Dr. X was......
My cell photo of the stage from our room
There was also a car show and this year they had scooters!
On our way back to the room to get ready for Dinner Thee Swank Bastards were playing
Smokin Tiki...they have a new one every year!
Off to dinner which I did not get photos of but we went to a old style Steak House called Albies. It was equipped with Piano bar and we got to hang out with the lounge lizards for a bit. We drank lots of wine and sang some Sinatra and Tom Jones...it was pretty funny actually ..really wish I had my camera
We did manage to miss out on the Elevator bar though ...
LOL Josh made these and hung them all through the elevator of our friend eating a hamburger while drunk the previous night...it was pretty funny
Gabe and I out and About. I had a wonderful cape and dress but it ripped at dinner...I guess I ate too much...:(
Kinda looks like Gabe
We watched the burlesque show as well. I did not care for the dancers to much on Saturday night and it was all crammed into one tiny room and you could not even see...They need to go back on a larger stage or at least make everyone sit
WHAT?!?! How did Gabe get backstage?? I swear he gets backstage everywhere
After the show a lot of people were hanging outside getting more drinks
and inside dancing to fun 60's tunes!
Then it was to more room parties with Bands and Burlesque dancers.
This particular burlesque dancer decided to step in a bucket and pour champagne all over herself...the nasty part was people were drinking the champagne afterwards out of the bucket...blechh..I was outta there
Talk to some friends along the way as we headed to more room parties
Oh I almost forgot..The Untouchables played earlier in the evening!!
We met up with our pals in the TIKI HELL room. It is pitch black dark with nothing but a Disco ball and red lights and hot as hell blaring 80's music! Last years Disco ball was blow fish ..this year it was a bomb
While we did lots of drinking and dancing and sweatin
Others were out at the pool...fully clothed....drinking lots of rum will do that to ya...
After Tiki Hell we headed back for a very casual quiet moment in Thee Swank Bastards room..Hiram had a little Jam session
Late late later on we headed to Kelly's room for a night cap..He is the bartender at Trader Sam's at the Disneyland Hotel so you know the drinks were good!
Lots of drunken shenanigans going on..it was finally time to bid everyone adieu and hit the sack since we were leaving the next day.
Sunday Morning Gabe and I could not pack up and leave until we had some private hot tub time. It was a nice time just the two of us reflecting on the weekend and sipping on a whole pitcher of bloody Mary's which we drank it all. I had a awesome buzz for the ride home which I took several naps.
I just love Tiki Oasis and I can not believe how quickly it went by. 4 days felt like 2 and it will feel like a lifetime until next year.
Aloha Tiki Oasis ...see you next year!!!
