Hi. I've been lurking for quite a while and finally decided to jump into the waters here. I've spent many hours looking through the posts and have been truly amazed by how talented a group this is. I always learn something new here. One day soon we hope to finish our backyard and I've always wanted to incorporate a tropical feel. Some of your backyards are literally a paradise. You are my inspiration.

I'm from the cold Midwest, live in California now, have been to Hawaii, got married on a beach there, and fell in love with the whole atmosphere there. I don't have much real tiki experience or knowledge. Still a newbie. I vaguely remember being in Chicago in the 70s and having dinner at a tiki restaurant (maybe along Lake Shore Drive or Michigan Avenue?). I remember it being kind of dark, there was a "river" running through it and you had to cross over small bridges to get to the dining area. Tropical drinks. Fire. Island music. Anyone know what restaurant this might have been?

Well just wanted to say hi and see you around the boards.

Hello everyone,
New here and new to Tiki collecting. I've been a fan of Tiki for as long as I can remember but only within the last year or so have I actually started collecting.
I spend a bit of time on the lottaliving.com website as I am also a big MCM fan.
My wife and I recently (6 months ago) bought a McMansion here in Anthem, AZ and I've
been given the upstairs covered balcony to build my TIKI BAR. Photos to come on the build. I look forward to reading all your experiences and knowledge of everything Tiki.....

Hey All! I've been reading posts on this site for a little over a year now. I don't usually post on sites since I'm inconsistent on checking them, but I noticed I am here just about every night so I thought I'd start. I'm from Edmond, OK. I call it the inland island. Thanks for having me!

Hello everyone, I'm new here to TC. I live in San Diego, CA. I've always dug Tiki, but finally started to carve and create tiki. I am fully addicted now. Mugs are starting to accumulate, along with the tiki theme in my backyard. My old neighbor Bob (Buzzard) taught me some tricks of the trade on carving and took me to two chops. There I meet some of you, and learned some more. I will post my progress soon.Thanks for having me aboard!!

Hello Folks! I have been reading posts here for sometime and I would like to thank everyone for such generous provisions of information, but also the good feeling among so many of the people here. My name is Robert and if you can guess from my moniker, I love The Beachcomber's (IMHO) masterpiece. I look forward to many more hours of tantalizing and interesting discussion! Sincerely, Robert

As a new guy here I wanted to get this introduction out of the way as quickly as possible.

I am a professional Chef and have been cooking for around 20 years. I've done all kinds of things, including fully authentic Luaus (with homemade fermented Poi)and tiki themed events for over 1,000 people. I cook all types of food and am more than willing to give pointers on food preparation or recipes.

I am currently building a tiki bar in the basement of our house. I will post before pictures very soon.

My tiki interests are some mugs (not collecting for collection's sake), Black velvet paintings (both buying and making), and any other DIY type projects that come up.

About the only thing that I do that's very different from what else is going on around this board is that I am somewhat known for my tiki ice carvings. I do tiki poles and relief carvings out of ice for special events. Occasionally I do fruit and vegetable carvings of the same nature, notably an Easter Island scene on a watermelon.

I hope this gives everyone a little glimpse into what's going on from my end.

Thank You
