Long time tikiphile here. Living in the high and dry part of New Orleans. Don't know purple jade directly though I'm fairly certain that we have a mutual friend. Hoping that the rebuilding of New Orleans will include a decent Tiki Bar.

Welcome, Tikiwmn & St. Tiki!

Tikiwmn - There are a lot of us here in the Los Angeles area and we have parties and go to tiki bars in groups all the time. Just keep checking the Tiki Events thread and don't be afraid to show up at the next event. We're a very welcoming group and your first drink's on me.

St. Tiki - Glad you were in a high-and-dry part of New Orleans. I don't know if we could take much more bad news from that part of the country. It's always great when another long-time tikiphile finds us as well. Are there many more of you out there who aren't already members?

Sabu

Hi, Tiki fans!

I'm new here, but not new to posting to online forums, internet news groups, or even such long-ago things like the FidoNet pre-internet network and BBS's. I love all things Tiki and Hawaiian, but I haven't been able to afford to actually take a trip to our 50th state. I greatly enjoy the South Sea Islands atmosphere of the Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World and return there as often as my budget allows. I even co-moderate a Polynesian Resort forum, on the internet at my Disney Echo website. I'm currently still trying to cope with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in New Orleans -- my workplace is still off limits to me and my fellow staff members while demolition of its first floor and cleaning takes place, before rebuilding begins following the devastating flooding it received months ago. In the meantime I'm working out of my house (which thankfully only had minor damage -- even the palm trees survived, surprisingly!) creating graphics until all of us can return to our New Orleans workplace. I'm glad I found Tiki Central because it helps me remember the fun times and take my mind off what's around me.

I'm happy to be a part of your Tiki community!

Aloha RichKoster, sorry to hear of another Hurricane victim.
Hopefully Tc and a few Mai Tai's will help sooth away the blues.

Maholo Everyone. I feel welcome already! I will be checking out the Tiki Events, and hope to meet you all at some event. I do know about Tiki Art Two, Nov 5, at La Luz in LA. I will be there, been planning it since I heard about it.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who suffered at the hands of Mother Nature.

Aloha Tiki Central. New guy here from San Bernardino, CA. I like what I see on this board and am looking forward to joining in the fun. I've been into Hawaiiana for a while, but only fairly recently got hooked on tiki. I have attended several events with my girlfriend within the past couple years, like Mondo Lounge, It's All About the TIki, Tiki Oasis, and the L.B. Tiki Beach Festival. I am a bit stumped as to what else to add here....so I think I'll just share some pics in another post so you all can see what I'm about.

Oh and we're leaving on Friday for Oahu & Kuaui for 10 days!!

Hello everyone! I'm Garey and I'm recently retired from my job due to an injury,,,,but now I have lots of time to research stuff. I live between Houston and Galveston; a bit too close to the water it seems these days. I fled Hurricane Rita and ended up directly in her path! I love excitement.

I've been trying to learn about a Tiki I was given about 28 years ago, after helping a girl that got stranded here on her vacation. I'm going to post some pics of it after I read a while to see if I can learn more about it,,,without asking a dumb or obvious question.

This site is neat!

Aloha and welcome, all! Delzo, don't worry about asking any obvious questions -- there was a time for all of us here when we knew less about tiki than you probably do now, so you're in good company. As a matter of fact, there are always new folks on TC, so you're probably not the only one wondering. As long as you ask nicely, someone will lend a hand. Try posting your tiki in Collecting Tiki, and be sure to include a picture. Instructions for that are here: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/faq.php#embed

Mahalo, Kon-Hemsby!

Is it okay if I substitute some Lapu Lapu's instead? They're my favorite.
