Tiki Crawl!

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Aloha kâkou!

We tried to wait until the Bad Santa crawl, but we miss tiki too much. Join us this Friday, October 23rd,  for a tiki pub crawl!

Crawl Itinerary (Map)

4:45 to 6:00 PM Pre-crawl @ EZ5 (684 Commercial St @ Kearny)

For the early crowd we’ll stage at “El Cinco” and chow on musubi spam!

6:00 to 7:30 PM @ Specs’ Twelve Adler Museum (12 Saroyan Aly off Columbus)

A cross between a museum and a dive bar, truly unique!

7:30 to 9:00 PM @ Bamboo Hut(479 Broadway @ Kearny)

Happy hour! Half price tiki cocktails, including those high-octane volcano bowls! Whoever drinks the cancerous-flaming 151 rum in the middle of the bowl doesn’t pay!

9:30 to 10:30 PM @ Hawaii West (729 Vallejo St @ Stockton)

It’s a tiki dive, but you won’t remember anything after 9 PM anyway

11:00 onward @ EZ5 (684 Commercial St @ Kearny)

Yes, that’s right, the EZ-5 bookends! You’re going to be crying like a wild dingo in the outback.

Dress Code

aloha shirts, grass skirts, coconut bras, flower leis, and/or sarongs

Meaningful prose off the deep end..

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

You should be able to tell by the title that this is nothing but good news. Indeed, things are looking up, and a true optimist will never hit the bottom simply for the lack of thereof. Life is full of affirmations. There’s the world’s orientation, with the sun always coming up in the east, that would guide you to your homeport. In woods, there are bears and more than a few hands clapping. At night, there is the Polar Star… On Wednesdays there is Puff’n’sip.

Today’s, October 14, 2009 Puff’n’sip will kick off @

5:14 PM @ Harlot, 46 Minna (@ Shaw)

and continue @

7:03 PM to Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lotsa love,


Musical talents, pieces of art, and other finer things that influence…

Someone brought this up today – not enough art in Puff’n’sip. I strongly and politely disagreed, but being too lazy to go back and check, I spent some amount of time pondering it in front of my famous window instead. At some point, I came to realize that art is at the core of it. Setting aside the execution and medium, the simple objective is exactly the same. The Art aims to adjust your perception and enrich your experience, sharpen your senses and arouse the motivation to interpret depths and perspectives. Puff’n'sip? – precisely the same! If the assumption that abstraction and ambiguity is at the core of artistic growth is correct – you’ve just grown a few artistic measures just by reading this note. Congrats! And to add to that – today’s Puff’n’sip is on!

Today’s, October 7, 2009 Puff’n’sip will kick off at

5:17 PM @ Taverna Aventine, 582 Washington St (@ Montgomery)

and travel @ about

7:01 PM to Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lotsa love,
