Aloha!

My facination/gravitation of all thing tiki originated on my first visit to Walt Disney World's Polynesian Resort (that and the talking carvings in the Tiki Birds attraction).

Thirty years later I happen upon this incredible culture via this site. In less than three weeks I built my first patio Tiki bar. It's collapsable as I too am land-locked in the Chicago suburbs. All the decorations were inspired by suggestions from the forum. My neighbors absolutely love me!

I have found my people!

Mahalo!
Drew

Drifting the virtual ocean in my imaginary Kon-Tiki with my trusty companion, Lulu,for too long now. It looks like we may have marooned on friendly islands. Cannibals or wahines? We'll see.

Hello, all. I've been posting for a couple of days here now, after surfing your site for the past couple of weeks. I'm new to tiki, and I'm really floored by the artistic and creative talent that congregates on thes forums. Although the lore of tiki is new to me, I can't help but feel 10 years old again, when I grew up in the exotic wilds of Covina, CA, where my parents would throw frequent luaus with crazy drinks, tiki torches (the smell of kerosene still makes me nostalgic and somewhat homesick. Come to think of it, it just makes me sick), leis, and lots of loud, boozing, laughing adults. The crazy thing is, most of those adults were younger than I am now, but they'll forever be etched in my mind as thes unattainable celebrities who seemed to have the world all figured out.
I remember when a trip to Bahooka was the highlight of my month--something my brother and I would look forward to like a trip to Disneyland.

I've since relocated to the Great Pacific NW, where I have the--some would say dubious--honor of making the acquaintance of both Monkeyskull and Chongo. (though not at the same time. Monkeyskull can't stand to be in the same room with Chongo, for obvious reasons).

Actually, Monkeyskull and I will be schlepping to Hukilau together, so I'll look forward to making many of your acquaintances at that fete.

I am still new in here, but very excited! And, forgive the childlike humor, but I had to post since I would be on page 69 (snicker!).

Anyway, I may pay for that later, but at least I got a laugh out of it. And besides, you have to laugh at life because no one gets out alive!

I've been hard working organizing a regular Tiki night in Fairfield County, Connecticut. The website: http://www.tikimoon.com will be live in a few hours... so keep trying... I've always been a big Tiki fan lamenting the lack of Tiki bar scene where I live. But a few weeks ago, a Tiki bar opened at Papaya Thai in South Norwalk. There's hope for the Nutmeg Tiki gods

Hey I'm Steve Legend, Punk Rocker from London and love Tiki! Me and Pickle (my girlfriend, posted on here about California) have been into Tiki stuff for a couple of years now after discovering Trader Vics in the Hilton hotel (damn expensive but very cool!) and Londons South Pacific! We picked up a couple of books and now hunt high and low for Tiki stuff for our 'Tiki Shelf' which is quickly turning into a Tiki wall and will probably end in being our 'Tiki Flat'!!

Hello people!!
