DIG TIKI OASIS the BIGGEST TIKI WEEKENDER on the PLANET! Tiki Oasis 2014: “Beat-Tiki”
A Gathering of the Urban Beachcomber – Bohemian Underground
Thursday August 14 – Sunday, August 15-17 – San Diego
Please join us at the biggest Tiki Weekender!
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!
