Aloha, divas! Last year our fan group, Desperately Seeking Trashy Diva, had a fantastic get-together at the Roosevelt Hotel. It was a chance for all these babes to get together, meet in person, enjoy some cocktails… and enjoy being the best dressed babes in the room! And while the group has been able to put on smaller events within New Orleans and in select cities, we were excited for another chance to get together, shop, and meet our new best friends.
So Desperately Seeking Trashy Diva presents…. DivaCon! Join our fans and the Divas for four fun-filled days of shopping, eating and drinking, and did I mention, shopping?
You’re probably not at all surprised to hear that the divas love a party… especially a themed one! We’re super excited to indulge in classic ’50s-’60s kitsch with a swinging, hip TIKI PARTY!
The crowning event is hosted by Trashy Diva, in this year’s Meet-up at Tiki Tolteca! If you’re a local diva, or will be in town on March 5th from 7-10:00 PM, we’d love to see you join us.
Tiki Tolteca is a tiki bar upstairs from Felipe’s Tacqueria in the French Quarter. Featuring classic tiki and tropical inspired cocktails, this event will surely have babes busting out their Blue Hawaii, Red Waterlilies, Tropical Sangria, and more! The event is open to partners and friends, as well. Tickets are $42 and include an open beer, wine, margarita and tiki bar, chips, guacamole, and queso. For a Saturday night in the French Quarter, you’re not going to find a better deal or a better time!
We’re thrilled that Designer and Owner Candice Gwinn, along with Trashy Diva staff, will be at the event… Candice is excited to meet our awesome customers, as well as talk to you all about the company. If you have any burning questions, let us know! From her design process to finding inspiration, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the company from the Head Diva herself.
From Trashy Diva staff to the members of DSTD, we’re ALL excited to honor this time-honored and retro tradition of hosting a tiki party! Dating back to the 1930s, Tiki bars flourished in post-WW1 life. From them, infamous drinks like the Mai Tai were created (the Mai Tai being created in 1944 at the original Trader Vic’s). Hotels along the West Coast infused Tiki Bars into their restaurants, and by the 1960s, the landlocked portion of the US was seeing a rise in them as well. They saw a great deal of popularity in the 1950s and 1960s, as hip couples across the USA hosted tiki parties! While the tiki-scene flourished for years, it died down after about 30 years, only to find a resurgence again in the 1990s. We’re thrilled to keep the culture, history, and style of tiki life alive by honoring it at DivaCon!
We look forward to seeing you all at DivaCon for Mai Tais, Hemingway Daiquiris and more! Don’t forget to pick up your tickets to the event in advance (they won’t be for sale at the door), and get ready to say “Aloha!” to your new best friends.
Tiki dreams and drinks,
