Hello! My husband and I were unknowing tikiphiles for years; we put together a tiki room during that time and learned about the tiki culture, drinks, and decoration as we went along. We love tiki but we are in Indiana and there's not much tiki here outside of our home.

I am not arm candy but recently attended my 20th high school reunion and my good friend from high school called me that and I laugh every time I think about it. Hence the name!

I will attempt to attach a picture of our tiki room to this post - look forward to getting Zombie drink advice. I have ordered my syrups but have yet to order my rums - will let you know what the results are.

Welcome Retro Grouch & arm candy tiki!

A.C.Tiki,

I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your tiki space!

When you get that Zombie going, be sure to post your 'tastings' in the food & drinks section. I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to that drink, it's enough to wake the dead!

I completely understand your lack of local tiki. Take that as an opportunity to score all sorts of great items no one else is looking for!

Cheers!

Okay, I think I've figured it out:





A bit of history: we had a deck with parapet walls that we decided to make a patio room - and then we started decorating. We didn't know anything about Tiki - but we must have had the Tiki genes, because that's what we ended up with. Now we finally know what we've been unknowingly trying to achieve all these years...

I will post Zombie results, if a) I don't have more than two, and b) if I remember. Depends on a), I guess!

Wow your tiki room looks sweet!

Please post more pics...you can do so in the creating tiki thread . I would love to see it even with the lights on to get an idea of all what you have in there.

Welcome!

Oh and there are a few other TC members on here in Indiana as well.

Hi all. For some strange reason, the past few months have brought several tiki references to my mind and I thought, "what the heck. Join a tiki forum" First there was the rediscovery of the ultra-lounge series that came out when I was in college. Then I read "Island of the Sequined Love Nun" by Christopher Moore. Then I developed a strange fascination with cocktails and have been dreaming of deserted islands. Maybe it's the stress. Then there was the "No Reservations" episode from State Island and I started thinking it'd be fun if there was a place like that to hang out.

Anyhow I'll be looking forward to reading about other tiki culture icons.

Hi All,

I'm thinking about starting to carve my own Tiki and this seemed a good place to be.

Hello All!! I'm Lazylog, and I love anything Tiki. My sister was my inspiration to carve and also the Totem Poles on Granville Island, Vancouver Canada. I'm 29 years old and I'm a dude. I ike Rod Rods and Rockabilly music, I'm a welder in my spare time, I got 2 dogs; Action Jackson and Spark Plug. I have a beautiful girlfriend and a best friend named Billy Jerk. I get frustrated easily and I tend to want to burn every Tiki I carve. Thankfully my girlfriend stops me. I've been checking out the Forum for a while now and finally I've decided to become a member. Thanks!
