I know all about the Tiki Wasteland here, it's the worst place to live if you are into this lifestyle, which I am.

Aloha!

I already posted a link to my modest little slice of Tikiana to another thread, but I thought I'd introduce myself.

My name's Steve and I live in Phoenix AZ. I have a few friends so I like to go out to the LA are quite a bit and hit up some of the bars there, particularly Bahooka.

And despite the less than glowing review of the Kon Tiki in Tucson I've decided it is also one of my favorite bars, that really really cool sign is now gone, and the drinks are not the greatest (Though I have had worse at other tiki bars) but the decor is unfreakin believable!


Steve

Thanks! I was just thinking that very same thing, and I will try to at some point, but there is a bit of a logistical problem since I live about 130 miles away from it. It's pretty packed in prime time so I'd have to try and get in when they open and ask them nicely if I can take some pictures.

The exterior is pretty cool too maybe I can just get my buddy to take some pictures. I think I finally managed to get him and his friends interested in tiki

Thought I would just say hello and introduce myself. I live in Northridge, CA and I frequent a few of the tiki places in LA. Mainly Bahooka and the Tonga Hut in North Hollyweird(Yeah I know the place is a dive, but there is something special about it. Maybe it's the 80 year old grandmas getting tanked up?).

I have a somewhat modest collection of tiki paraphernalia. My great uncle(Mom's uncle) worked for Steve Crane during the 50's and 60's as an artist, so when he died my family got a box from him. I called it the "Hawaiian pottery shit" box when I was younger. Little did I realize til later on that it was filled with all sorts of Steve Crane bowls and mugs that my great-uncle worked on. A few of the pieces are prototypes of the mugs that were used in the restaurants. My uncle also worked on several hotels in Hawaii in the 60s and did the big tiki restaurant in Montreal(Can't remember the name).

Other than that I collect whatever I can find for cheap. One of my other cool pieces is a giant trashcan from the Polynesian Village in Disney World. It is one of the cans that sits around the hotel. There is the hotel's tiki logo on both sides, with the words "WASTE PLEASE Mahalo" This is a really cool piece too. I just wish I could get a bar going.

Aloha

Hi Maui Matt!

Glad to see another S.F. Valleyite - we're in Granada Hills. I think once we get a few more valley folks on board - we should all do a pilgrimage to the Tonga!

Steve, if the big Tiki at the side entrance is still there, post a pic of it, and we can start a contest to find it in the Book Of Tiki. It came from distant shores...
Too bad about the sign. (BOT p.117) When will they learn!

Matt, what was your uncle's name, and when did he pass away? He must have worked with George Nakashima and Florian Gabriel, especially if he worked on the Kon Tiki in Montreal...was it Irving Weisenberg? He worked for Armet & Davis...hmmm...if he worked on Hotels in Hawaii, maybe he was with Wimberly & Cook?

You know this is scary, cause Irving is my uncle. He passed away in the late 80s. Its been so long, I can't remember the exact name of the company he worked for. Though Armet and Davis sounds familiar. He used to have tons of artwork from things he did, but I believe they are no longer around. I think I have more stuff than his son(my cousin).

I have looked for information on him online, but I've never seen anything. I'm just curious how you know his name and where I could find some information. My aunt is still around, and I think she'd be really pleased to see that people are talking about some of the designs he did.

I must say, this board is really cool.

Thanks again!
