I just stumbled upon Tiki Central! Very cool site and community! My Sweetheart Lance Wagner and I are getting married in June and it is an all TIKI Wedding. We are active in the cabaret community here in Seattle and pretty much everyone involved in the wedding is either a Burlesque performer, Pin Up Girl or Cabaret Producer or Emcee. All are into mid century lifestyle and real excited about the wedding. Babtette La Fave is Lance's Best man, and Vincent Drambuie will be on the groom's side, I have Fleur Du Mal and Tamara The Trapeze Lady and gogo Amy ! Flower girls include Goody Goody and Lynn Rosskamp. The best part is an "Almost Virgin" sacrifice to honor the Tiki Gods performed by Lydia Mclane and her sweetie Lee.
Any ideas? We welcome them!
Please google "Tiki Pipeline" by Lance Wagner on You Tube it is one fun Tiki Film and can demonstrate our Tiki Pin Up Girl photography. It is a compilation of the best of the NW in Pin Ups!
Our studio is in Seattle,we live in the Kindergarten room of a mid century elementary school, all artists live here. We were fortunate enough to shoot Alex Borestein's DVD Cover in a Pinn Up Style. Shee is the voice of "Lois" on "Family Guy" and was Mad Tv's Mrs. Swan. Google that TOO!
Anyhoo, kids it is real nice to be here, I look forward to making friends in the community!

Aloha, y'all... yeah, I know.
Anyway, my partner and I are all about mid-century modern, which includes everything Tiki. That's about it, there's a lot in our bar and spread throughout the house... just looking forward to meeting new folks with the same interests in design and style, and swapping ideas, recipes and finds... thanks!

good to meet you, Ink.
You will find that there are a bunch of us in New England who get together regularly.
I won't be there on the 20th at the Kowloon, but I look forward to meeting you in person.

Aloooooha!
I love this place! I've always thought I was the only one who got off on TIKI till I bought the Tiki book a couple of years ago. I have loved tiki since I was a kid growing up in So Cal in the early 60's. My Grandparents had an apt in Honolulu and their love for all things Hawaii was contagious! Their home here had a very tiki pool in the back with a very tropical yard. I grew up learning landscape design and my favorite theme is...TROPICAL!!! I have always designed tropical yards to try to recreate that tiki feeling we all know & love. Anyway, I enjoy hunting out tiki type hideouts and in the past enjoyed Don the Beachcomber in Hollywood, Trader Vic's in SF, Kono Hawaii in Santa Ana, and of course, the Hawaiian Islands. My new home is decorated in tropical themes & the yard I am planning is the ultimate tropical getaway!! I look forward to meeting many of you at the various functions this year and, of course, establishing contacts for the tikis I'll need for my new backyard!
Thank You very much!
Kahuna

PS: Does anyone remember the 'Holo Wai' miniature gold course in Orange, CA? It was the coolest mini golf ever! Right on Glassell St near the 22 Fwy. It had a sunken city with waterfalls, tikis, & grass shacks. I would love to see if anyone has pictures.

Hello.
I only found this site last weekend, made a coupla posts and still reading through it, found the introductions. In any case,

I am a pale-blue irish boy from the northeast, (approximately four miles east of the Kowloon, actually!) a student of the ukulele and hapa-haole songs, got married in Hawaii, (leap-year day, 2000!), got to see Rudy Aquino and the Lanui Band nightly at Ka'anapali and fell in love with all things Polynesian! (Heck, I even enjoyed that artificial mucus they have out there... Poi.)

I originally joined to see if someone could help me with a song I found, ("Down Honolulu Way," Earl Burnett, 1916. See "Chords for Uke Tunes" in Tiki music,) but have been reading up on all this neat stuff! What a great site! Seems too be a number of you from this area, too. I am sorry I didn't join sooner to get to that big Kowloon meet'n'greet, but I plan to visit a local Polynesian themed watering hole this weekend with a camera to share an experience at "Fantasy Island" for your "Locating Tiki" forum.

This is SOOOO my bag, baby!
