Welcome to the fun! It was great meeting you and sharing a table at Ichiban with you & your son.
Look forward to seeing you again and maybe getting in on a little of that Simpson Clue action

Hi, I'm Sassy (Cheryl) from Seattle. Some of the Seattle tiki-files and a few from the S. Cal. or SF may know me. Since I was so inactive on here (I think I only logged on once since the Yahoo days, LOL) my id was no longer active. So, I've just re-registered again, and here I am.
Happy New Year all!

Hola mis amigos
In spirit I am an artist, writer, poet, tiki lover and hedonist. To the world at large I am a mild mannered computer programmer, just a number at that name that's probably located somewhere on your printer. I am stunned and amazed by the talent here. I've been lurking long enough to see appreciate each of you regulars.
Like it says in book of tiki, once someone has seen him (tiki) he is forever haunted in spirit (I paraphrase).

I am a fan of exotica, tiki, Polynesia, Polynesian pop etc. etc. from Munich Germany where I work as a dj for about 15 years now mostly at the atomic café (www.atomic.de). One time in the year I organise the Swing and Sway in Hawaii party with Hawaiian music to dance to. My webside is just at the start:
(and doesn’t work at the moment to my surprise, but I will fix this soon)
I am also at the exotica list for a long time where I mostly lurk.
nice to meet you all here in cyberspace

New member..love the site. Huge fan of anything Tiki, Exotica, Space Age and Atomic. No Tiki bars in my city; but I do remember the old Beachcomber here in downtown Winnipeg years back..I even spent a New Years there in the late 80s. Alas, it too is gone, but not before I was able to score an ultra-cool menu from the cocktail lounge. It remains a treasured piece in my Tiki memorabilia box.
From the looks of things around here, I'm not the only one crazy about Polynesian Tiki culture. I'd hate to think I'm the only one who cares waaaay up here in Canada tho!
I love this stuff. You people are all welcome to come over and spin Esquivel platters and dust off the zombie glasses. I'll even pull out the good rum...NOT the stuff I keep for the buds!!

I am a newbie here, and a total novice ( please forgive) I started getting into Tiki only recently ( with exception of ALWAYS adoring Enchanted Tiki Room since I was a youngin) anyways, jumping in head first into Tiki and trying to learn all that I can. Am busy adding tiki to my new home here in Texas too, it is soooo fun!

Hello Tiki worshippers! My name is Joe. My wife Ilene and I live in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, just minutes away from the Mai Kai restaurant. I have been into collecting tiki for quite some time, but got into it when we were on our honeymoon in Hawaii a few years ago. We are currently in the midst of re-decorating our former guest bedroom into a "Tiki Hideway" nursery for our first child which we are expecting soon. I've been scouring the net for all sorts of tiki items -- and pleasantly stumbled upon this forum. I look forward to conversing with my fellow Tiki worshippers in the coming days, months .... Oh, and if anyone has any tiki tips for items for a nursery, I'll be glad to hear them. -- Joefla70

Thanks for having me aboard the TC.
I am looking forward to discussing good tikis, good food, good drinks, good times and bad Elvis movies with all of you.
If you are wondering about the username, check out old episodes of Rocky and Bullwinkle. The name is corrupted slightly to avoid any copyright infringement and because absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Sorry, I will watch the rambling tangents in the future

Aloha! I have been lurking for over a year off and on and finally decided to come out of the woodwork.
I currently live in Marina del Rey, CA on the best street name ever - Bora Bora Way!! I am originally from the Boston area and long for the days of the Aku Aku near Fenway and in Cambridge. I grew up around parental influenced Tiki culture and always loved Polynesian themed Chinese restaurants.
Exploring SoCal Tiki culture is still new to me and I appreciate all the feedback on this forum. I can't wait to add my two cents!!
Shake your Tiki
