This years tikistravaganza runs from tonight through Sunday, and it kicks off at 6 p.m. with Fine Art Tiki at the Yankee Clipper Ballroom (1140 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale), an awesome exhibit curated by the folks from Miamis hippest space, Harold Golen Gallery. Wear your nicest Hawaiian shirt or most couture sarong to this tiki formal affair, so that you look your best as you check out art by Shag, Heather Watts, Miles Thompson, and loads more. At 8 p.m. dart across the street (look both ways!), and party at Bahia Cabana (3001 Harbor Dr., Fort Lauderdale) with guest emcee King Kukulele and special musical acts The Fisherman, Haole Kats, Laramie Dean, and burlesque goddesses Torchy Taboo & Hot Lava! Wash back up at the Yankee Clipper at midnight and be mesmerized by everyones favorite sandbar siren, Marina the Mermaid.
