Aloha TikiBabe & welcome to Tiki Central. Have you been to Trader Vic's and South London Pacific? I lived in the London a few years ago & I really miss the town & those bars.

Make sure to try to meet up w/ some of the other TCers in the UK. They're great people.

Cheers,
Tiki Chris

howdy all from down under,

unfortunately I couldn’t come up with a snappy tiki-related user name, so my nickname will have to do!

this is an amazing place full of information, inspiration and plenty of very entertaining (and helpful) people! i've visited a few times now and have already gained invaluable ideas and knowledge - but it might take me years to read and absorb all the info contained here!

thru reading some threads on the Creating Tiki forum i've even been possessed with a notion that i could even carve a tiki of my own!! so now theres 8 fresh big logs in my garage just waiting for a tiki to hop out of their bark skins.

Personally, been into tiki / kustom kulture / vintage / mid-century / old stuff for many years but down here tiki is very much an underground subculture, there are a few likeminded souls around the traps but on the whole you’d get a blank stare if you mentioned “moai” “mai tai” or even “tiki bar” around here. Other interests is old custom cars, playing rock’n’roll and listening to everything from exotica to punk rock to ska to psychobilly.

Luckily I’ve visited some great tiki bars in the states, japan and the UK in my travels in recent years (there is nothing to match the likes of Trader Vics down here), and hope to visit many more in a big trip thru Sth and Nth america (and hopefully Easter Island) next year.

g’day to the other aussies on this board too!
cheers,
harro

Hiya, as my nick here implies, I am the husband and fellow tiki enthusiast of the creator of the infamously ultra-rare "SchoonTiki" mug (http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=7316&forum=5&14). I mainly signed up to provide some more acurate backgound information on that particular piece.

I love tiki and all things related...
Glad to see like minded people.

Welcome to Tiki Central!! Finally, another TC'er with "Tane" in their name! Hey....maybe you and I can launch a campaign to teach others how to pronounce it!! Actually - most know - it's just fun to hear the way some folks say it!

Meka Leka Hi everyone
I figured its probably time I put myself out there. Some of you know who I am, But I'm sure most of you have never heard of me. So Im posting a Bio. I'm really bad at the self promotion ,but here goes.
My name is Dawn Frasier, I Live in Seattle and I've been making Tikis since the late 80's. I was one of the fist artists to show work along side Shag and Bosko in the early 90's. My work was shown at the first Exoticon in LA.and later in several group shows in SF and Seattle. Several of my pieces have hung in Luau Polynesian restaurant in Seattle for about 10 years. There is an article about me in an early Tiki News issue. and I'm in the Taboo, Art of Tiki Book. Happy to be getting involved again, Thanks for Listening . Dawn

Aloha from exotic Cincinnati Ohio!
Looking forward to chatting with everyone out here. Far as I know, the only real Tiki Bar in Cincinnati is the one in our house! Please correct me if I am wrong.

Mahalo,

I have a TC question and did not want to start a new thread to post it.

Since I am a new member I hope it is kosher to post it here.

When ever I come to TC I am asked for my Screenname and Password, although I have checked the "remember me" box.

Is there something else I should be aware of to enable this feature?

Thanks.
