Aloha friends!

Tiki Road Trip 2 is coming along nicely. The text was turned in to the editors at Santa Monica Press in January, they sliced and diced as nescessary in February and March, and now the graphic designer has it. It will be printed in May, and be in your hands by June.

There will be a number of book signings this summer, with the first of them being at Hukilau in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on June 15.

Further events will be announced soon!

In addition to debuting Tiki Road Trip 2 at Hukilau, I'll be giving an hour-long presentation called "The Making of Tiki Road Trip 2 in Technicolor" that will include pictures, words, and music. Come with James on road trips across the United States, and even across Easter Island by Jeep.

Hukilau web site:

Tiki Road Trip 2 is available for pre-order NOW at:

http://www.tydirium.net/tiki/tikiroadtrip.html

Further book signings are expected to be announced soon!

Here's the official press release:


"About Tiki Road Trip 2:

Tiki Road Trip by James Teitelbaum was released in 2003 as a guidebook to the whens and wheres of all things Tiki. The book sent thousands of people on six continents to hundreds of destinations, where they all gleefully imbibed exotic rum drinks, chowed down on sumptuous feasts, reveled in (pop) cultural history, worshipped at the altar of Tiki, and attempted contact with the opposite sex (sometimes all of these things at once).

Inevitably, the information contained in the book fell a bit out of date over the next four years, and a great sadness was heard around the globe.

But there is hope!

Yes, every four years we have an olympics, a presidential election, and a Tiki Road Trip.

May of 2007, four years (and one month) after the debut of Tiki Road Trip, Santa Monica Press will bring you Tiki Road Trip: revised and expanded.

What's new in Tiki Road Trip II:

Your world-wide guide to Polynesian Pop!

Full update to the entire text, that moves recently closed places to the closed section, adds newly opened places, and offers more historical information on classic places. Almost every entry has been revised; most have been completely re-written.

The 2003 version of Tiki Road Trip paid homage to the classic Tiki bars. The new version still includes these locations, of course, but spotlights the new places, particularly the several dozen that have opened in the past four years. Where the 2003 edition was about the history of Tiki, the 2007 edition will lean towards the future of Tiki.

A few pesky factual errors and typos from the prior edition have been corrected.

More photos than before, with high quality room shots of new and classic locations, as well as graphics such as menus, postcards, matchbooks, and artifacts such as Tiki mugs and carvings.

Expanded drink recipes section, Hawaiian vocabulary, and glossary.

New design that makes it easier to find what you're looking for, and makes the divsion between existing places and closed places more clearly defined.

Larger International section, particularly spotlighting the booming Spain, England, and Germany Tiki scenes. Much larger Hawai'i section as well.

Shag has modified his cover art: play "spot-the-difference"!

Eighty (80) pages longer; same price as the 2003 edition!

What a deal!"

That has been on the back burner for the past six months, as I get TRT II together. I have a few more leads with publishers that I will explore beginning in March of this year (after the design and editoiral work on TRT II is done). Last news on BSH is that Otto talked to some publishers for me back in October, but they didn't bite.

My first dumb question of the day (more are bound to slip out): Is the cover shot of the book a book currently available or is it a mock up of what is to come? Thanks.

I love the idea of each location with menus, postcards and the tiki mugs all in one. Can't wait for May. Is there any color pages?

Wait .... I still haven't visited all of the sites listed in the first book!

This is great news. I am pleased that new tiki venues continue to be born, and hopefully the nation's (and world's) overall cumulative TiPSY rating total will continue to expand, rather than diminish. A second volume shows the general public that there really might be some legs to this thing called tiki.

Let the tiki revival continue!

I look forward to having the two volumes sitting side-by-side in my bookshelf.

Vern

Oops, didn't mean to be unclear here - there are not (nescessarily) menus, AND postcards, AND mugs for every location. There would be no room for that, and even with the help of some of the biggest collectors here, I am not sure that anyone could assemble ALL of that! I just meant that there are more of these sorts of pictures in general than in the previous edition.

Santa Monica Press and I went back and forth about color, and they ultimately decided that it would drive the price of the book up higher than what the market would bear. So no color.

Also, since someone asked, the cover art seen above is final.
