Aloha to you all. This is a great ohana and is very willing to share a tremendous amount of knowledge.

I am looking forward to this. The cocktail shaker exhibit a few years back at the airport was amazing. I almost missed my flight!

All I can help with is a book from 1950 called "Look What's Cooking In and Near San Francisco". There are descriptions of Skipper Kent's and Zombie Village along with some recipes but it doesn't say when they opened ot closed. I can scan it for you if you want.

Welcome to Tiki Central!

Thanks but I think I have that info covered. I'm going to go over to Otto's house at noon so I will see if he can shed some light on the subject.

Thanks Again, Jeff

Aloha! I found these forums a few days ago and just wanted to introduce myself. It looks like there's a fair amount of Portlanders here... just adding another one to the mix. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and late-60s tiki culture forms a backdrop to some of my earliest memories.

This week, I'm heading to Thailand and look forward to visiting Trader Vic's in Bangkok. It's sad to see a couple of others I've been to closed (Portland and Chicago).

I look forward to reading and maybe participating in the NW crawl.

I'm not that new as a member (2004) but I haven't been a regular reader of these forums until the past few weeks and I never posted until today. I regret my earlier silence and absence, but I am so happy to be here now! My wife and I just relocated from LA to Chicago (only to be devastated by the closing of Chicago Trader Vic's - thank goodness they'll be back soon and we made it to the Palmer Hilton location a few times before it was too late). Anyway, Aloha to you all!

Hey Reedalong - glad to see you here on TC.
Welcome.

The Chicago Tiki group doesn't get together as often or in as large numbers as in SF or LA, but stay tuned to TC for announcements - we do drag the ohana out to play once in a while.

If you need any other help getting acclimated here, let me know, I'm always happy to help a member of the ohana get settled.

Hello,

I've been a tiki nut (and read-onlier here) since being a regular at Trader Vic's in the U.A.E. about three years ago -where I also set up my own personal lounge in my huge flat there. I've moved to Prague,Czech Rep. three years ago-where there are only a few places exotica - none of them truly integrated in theme. For fun, I might have some chance to work on opening a tiki bar.

Hi, my wife and I are professional jewelers specializing in unique designs. We do a line of tiki jewelry well as skull rings and anything else you can dream up.

I'm new to your site today. Love it
I'm just starting to collect tiki. My best, so far,
is a 2 1/2 foot carving I bought from a guy alongside
the road between Key West and Key Largo. Getting it back
to Washington state was interesting.

Slowly converting my kitchen and patio to tiki.
Great information here.
