delzo, I second Humuhumu's response. Don't worry about whether your questions are dumb or obvious. I have discovered that there are many fine people at TC that are willing to answer questions or politely point you to the answers.

Greetings all. So glad to have found this wonderful forum. Last year my wife and I visited New Zealand for our honeymoon and fell in love with the Maori. Thus my intrest in Tiki.

After Hurricane Wilma hit us a few weeks ago, we have lots of palmwood and we wanted to start carving tikis from some of our felled trees...let them live on...

Looking forward to learning and chatting with you.

Hey everyone, Iíve been lurking unregistered for awhile now. After months of daydreaming about it, I finally made the decision to build my own basement Tiki bar and I figured registering on the boards was the first logical step towards getting my ass in gear and making it happen. See, Iím obnoxiously lazy so now itís like Iíve got a whole community to answer to if I put it off (wellÖ.besides my family and friends who are already expecting Thanksgiving and Christmas Luaus).

While the Enchanted Tiki Room was my favorite thing about my trip to Disneyland when I was 6 and Benihanaís PuPu Platter was about all I could talk about the year I was 8, I wasnít completely seduced by the Tiki gods until about 7 years ago. King Kini hosted Club Velvet every Saturday night at The Front in Northeast Minneapolis and I lived stumbling distance away. When Kini was ousted (for reasons unknown), I swore Iíd have my own Tiki lounge someday.

Three months ago we bought our first house Ė with a bar in the basement. (Whoo!) Iím finally able to make my pineapple-sweetened dream a reality. =)

Howdy Tiki Folk!

Well the Tiki bug bit, and the infection appears uncurable, so there's little left for me but to dive in deep and this seems the place to do it.

I'm TofuJoe (tofu because I'm a veggie, yep, a tiki-veggie, and Joe because my name is Scott).

My wife (wahine?) and I caught the bug at Tiki Oasis last year and we have since embarked on creating our own backyard tiki retreat (complete with a bocce court, yep, tiki-bocce) in scenic Oakland, CA.

We did come out to one of the Bay Area lost thursdays (the first one?) then kind of dissapeared into our busy life doldrums. Just last weekend we found ourselves at the Tiki Terrace in chicago and remembered how much we love the tiki scene and the people in it.

I have lots of scattered tiki interests and I'll try to find the right place to post about them.

So...hello...and this time I'll try to stay active!

Welcome to TC scispy, (say that fast 5 times), and welcome to you too TofuJoe. Oakland eh? Kona Club is opening soon there. Come out to Minnie's and visit us sometime. Just let us know when and we'll try to get together.

Hello, My name is john. I have been lurking around tiki central for years. I live in Columbus Ohio, And went to the Kahiki often. My user name is a tribute to skip the famous Kahiki bartender. I had only 7 no answers on mauitikis tiki quiz (I think that makes me a tiki freak)thats the best I've ever done on a test! But I have been studying for ten years or more.

Oh yeah a little belated but oh well- better late than never.

I found this site a couple months ago google searching for info on the death of Vandals lead singer Steve-o Jensen. Anyhow- hey- very nice site- I like what you've done with the place.

I'm from Pacific Beach California but left in '89. I live in Hawaii and play music and surf and hang out with my kids and dogs. I don't hang out with the cat as I believe she is quietly condescending and certainly plotting my demise.

I shoot photography of questionable artistic value and write rambling tomes that gather dust in boxes under my desk in my office. I also play guitar and ukulele and (although some have asked me not to) harmonica. I sometimes race paddleboards and outrigger canoes, surf and generally frolic (men shouldn't frolic. Nor mince. Nor should they chat. I've got it on the best of authority. I frolic in a masculine fashion.)

Anyhow- cheers!

Hello from Dallas! I can't believe it's taken me this long to find this place. I have long loved tiki culture, but just recently dived in. I hope I make some friends around here... I want to learn and have fun.

Have one on me
