Your Weekend Breakdown


Peeps of Caliente! I, Rory Snyder (your Tiki Caliente Founder and Host), am giving you one last shout-out before Tiki Caliente kicks off this Thursday, May 14th, 2015.
Here is what you need to know before you go, so please read thi
We look forward to seeing all of you, but if you need to cancel your reservations, you MUST do this by 10:00 AM Tuesday, May 12th, to avoid paying penalties.
The bar on grounds is CASH ONLY, so make sure you bring actual money if you plan to imbibe. We will be serving up some delicious libations, so more than likely, you’ll want to. Specialty Drink provided by some fellow Ohana.
There will be excellent aloha-style food on grounds provided by our friends at Da Kine Island Style Catering. However, should you want to stroll for a bit, there are several good restaurants within easy walking distance, so you don’t have to lose your coveted parking spot.
Bring a portable radio! Radio Caliente (100.1 FM) will be setting the mood all weekend with perfectly-themed music and special Tiki Caliente announcements. You will definitely want this playing in your hotel room at all times, or be able listen to it as you shop and relax by the pool.
The current weather report says we will enjoy temperatures in the Mid 80’s all weekend, with the lows in the 60’s at night. Pack accordingly, based on your comfort level for these predictions.
You will be entertained. Here’s proof — the latest breakdown of all the scheduled events you will enjoy during your Tiki Caliente vacation.

Back to the Caliente Tropics for the 50th Anniversary

People of Caliente:

We are very excited about returning Tiki Caliente to its original home at the Caliente Tropics hotel. Apparently, so are you. Several weeks ago, as a courtesy, we sent emails to those who booked on-site rooms with us last year, and we had an immediate and thunderous response. This announcement is to let you know that the rooms at our host hotel, the Caliente Tropics, have SOLD OUT for Tiki Caliente 7. Before you say, “Awww, man!”, DO NOT DESPAIR, as we have really excellent news for you that will solve everything and make you Tiki-happy. First of all, even though we knew this hotel would sell out fast (as the Caliente Tropics does not have as many rooms as The Curve hotel — where we have held Tiki Caliente for the past several years), we felt going back to our Tiki roots was worth it, and we know you do, too. Here’s the news you’re going to like: On January 31st, we will inform you of the other walking-distance hotels that will welcome you with equal aloha during Tiki Caliente 7. Not only that, on this date you will also be able to purchase your weekend wristbands (here’s the awesome part) THAT WILL ALSO GIVE YOU FULL ACCESS AND USE OF THE CALIENTE TROPICS POOL DURING TIKI CALIENTE 7! This means that, even if you’re staying nearby, you will be able to enjoy all of the special perks of staying on ground. We know how important being able to swim and play with your Caliente ohana is to you, so we are happy to make this fun possible for everyone this year. See? All better.

On January 31st, you will also be able to order your highly-collectable, limited-edition Tiki Caliente 7 mug, at our special pre-order price. This will be another stunning piece of functional art created by Doug Horne and Eekum Bookum. (Stay tuned for photos and price.)

As we have said before, we do not want to be the biggest Tiki event, merely the best. Therefore, we are limiting our wristband sales to 450 maximum this year, due to make sure all of you will enjoy Tiki Caliente 7 in comfort at the beautiful Caliente Tropics.

Mahalo for your support. We look forward to entertaining you.

Rory “Wildsville Man” Snyder
