Tiki Oasis Hits San Diego

Dig that crazy scene, daddio. San Diego is going to be invaded by beatnik tiki fans this weekend and it is going to be a happenin’ time.

Every year, Tiki Oasis takes over San Diego with the biggest Tiki Weekender in the world, and every year there is a new theme.  This year it is beatnik themed, so expect a lot of cigarette pants, stripes, and berets in addition to the leis, tropical flowers in lovely ladies’ hair, and sarongs.  It’s going to be quite a cra-zy mash-up of styles all over Southern California.

While most of the events for Tiki Oasis require tickets, there are a few events that are open to the public and are free!  The car show that starts Saturday and art show that begins tonight.

Still not quite sure what Tiki Oasis beatnic theme is all about?  Check this out…

Tiki Oasis’ “Beat-Tiki” weekender offers a unique pairing of the Beatnik and Tiki ethos. Like the Beat Generation of legend and lore, today’s Tiki aficionados are drawn to primitivism and thirst to reconnect with the primal past, celebrating it in a modern context. Spend a carefree weekend in an urban oasis amidst fellow barefoot bohemians, reveling in the kind of art, music, literature and mixology that is sure to flip your lid! []
