Gramps baby, if there's a Tiki Bar Crawl in Seattle, count me in! And hopefully I'll drag fartsatune (we're both from Vancouver) along too.

Are there Tiki bars in Seattle?...

aloha,
emspace.

There are three that I am aware of. A good crawl could start out at the Lava Lounge early (giving people who want dinner before hand a chance to eat at Mama's Kitchen; another great eclectic spot in Seattle) then could crawl to Tiki Bob's Cantina. There are other places I have heard of, but don't know how they would work out; Luau Polynesian Lounge (I haven't been there) and Ohana has a very small Tiki lounge.

Thanks man, but the nickname has been there since I was a sophomore in high school. I went to a dance dressed up like a dirty old man. The girls I met that night have called me Gramps ever since. I met Mig through a twist of various friends originating from those girls. So Gramps follows me where ever I go.

Hey.

My name is David Doris. I used to be a musician, but these days I write about the history of African Art, and also teach it to unsuspecting university students.

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I visited an old Chinese restaurant in Washington DC--the Yenching Palace was its name, and it was up on Connecticut Avenue, where it had been since the early 1960s. I took a look at the drink menu, and said to the waiter, "My, but this 'Flaming Volcano Bowl' of yours sure does sound interesting! May I have one please?"

The waiter--his name was Sam; really, it was--retreated to the bar with his Mandate. Time passed. Soon returning to the table, Sam, now strangely wreathed in a glowing halo of clearest white light, set down with quivering hands the Golden Gift of Destiny that would dramatically and irreversibly transform my life. In the flash of yellow flame that blossomed forth from a wee ceramic volcano, erupting amidst a lagoon of tiny, tiny ice floes, I saw... The Word. And yea, The Word--TIKI--burned itself into the walls of my skull, searing my consciousness, and making me very, very thirsty indeed.

Fortunately, I did not have to look very far to quench my thirst--or so I thought. The answer, it seemed, was just at the far tip of One Very Long Sipping Straw. But even that Cool Libation did not fully satisfy, and the Fire of Pele still burns within... And so today, in humility and with respect, I come to Tiki Central, that I might learn the Way of Tiki, and that I might continue to seek, among this Society of Fellow Tiki-Seekers, the Profound Truths that bubble and froth beneath the cool shade of all those Little Paper Umbrellas...

Thanks for having me. Please return your trays to their locked, upright position. May All Good Things be yours.

David (tikifa)

Hey hey Gecko Tiki, Basement Kahuna, and Polynesian Pop!

Thanks for your kind words o' welcome! And from three Tiki Socialites, at that! I'm honored. Can't wait to see what's in store here, and my heart's just a-poundin' in anticipation. I'll be heading down to the Hukilau in Fort Lauderdale in June--perhaps we shall share a heady brew or two then? That'd be suave...

May All Good Things be yours,

tikifa

Ah oui, monsieur le Basement Kahuna! I must be more precise wiss ze language in ze future. For now, please allow me to correct myself: by "heady BREW or two" I surely meant "unusually complex, somewhat suspect, but singularly tingly CONCOCTION...or two." No hops around here, bub! And I want my glassware to be a-starin' and a-grinnin' right back at me, too! You betcha!

All Good Things,

tikifa

Welcome Gramps, Tikifa, and Ditiki!

Tikifa, I just did some google digging on ya, and it looks to me like TC's got itself another very good potential tiki historian newly in its fold! Hoorah! Now all we gotta do is steer you away from Africa and towards the lovely islands of Polynesia; ever think about sailing a boat from South America to Tahiti?

Wlcome to Tiki Central Gramps, Tikifa & Ditiki,
Gramps, I get this visual image of you as a young William Burroughs, which is cool since he was one the greatest American writers of the 20th century. And Tikifa...Who in the hell do you think you are?...MICKEY SPILLANE! You are one silver tongued devil...keep up the good work. And Ditiki, It's good to see some 2nd generation TC'ers gettin onboard. Someday we'll be dust and all this will be yours.

Aloha Tikifa,

And welcome!

The Yenching Palace still exists, and it's sign- a true beacon in the night,
http://www.clevelandpark.com/yenchingpalace/,still beckons!

Here's a small article about this true DC Chinese landmark- http://www.washingtonian.com/dining/Profiles/yenching.html

I was just wondering if you're still somewhere in the DC area these days?
