Can you dig it, daddy-o and cool kitties? Check this preview of works at the Fifth Annual Tiki Oasis Art Show in San Diego. If you are fond of rum-based fruity cocktails and find yourself nodding your head and snapping your fingers to the sentiments of old time television’s Maynard Krebs, spouting haiku this is the show for you.
Pull out your bongo drums, dust off your beret, drop a needle on an Exotica record, and feast your eyes on the perfection that is the best of the Beats and Tiki culture combined.
The Tiki Oasis 5th Annual Art Show is on exhibit from Friday August 15 through Sunday August 17 in the Grand Hanalei Ballroom in Crown Plaza. It’s open to the public and all the art is for sale. More information on the event can be found at the website for Tiki Oasis 2014.

To get in the mood for the Tiki/Beatnik experience, have a look at this vintage clip from Petticoat Junction featuring Dennis Hopper, The Beatnik. Then 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!
Haiku writing, yoga, symposiums, lectures, slideshows, spontaneous poolside bongos and the unbeatable sounds of the Unclaimed await those who buy a ticket to this four day Beatnik Paradise, though day-trippers can view the art show and car show for free!
