I was so excited to find a link to the Kona Kai Restaurant in Philadelphia PA. On this date, at this time 45 years ago my husband and I celebrated our marriage with dinner there. He passed away last year so it was very comforting to find those marvelous pictures of a place that represents such positive memories for me. Thank you to whomever did all the work!

Howzit, Keith Tucker here, I've been lurking around occasionally for years, and finally got around to signing up. I'm an artist who's lived in Hawaii for a couple of decades, and an animation professional. I've been enamored with Tiki's since my childhood.
Here's a sample, it's my latest post on my personal art blog www.tuckerstikis.com

I'm relatively new to the world of tiki collecting and art, picking up my first tiki mug at a thrift shop about a month or so ago. I've also begun dabbling in artwork and am enjoying it... I've been greatly inspired by the many artists here at TC!
Below is my first watercolor, just finished it yesterday.
This site is amazing and I look forward to developing some great friendships!

Aloha and Mahalo to one and all from a very happy newbie!! I've been looking for a site like this for some time. I'm another unfortunate guy who's polynesian at heart, but happens to live in Canada, but I try to make it to Hawaii every year or two. I knew where my heart belonged from the first trip to the islands back in the 70's as a boy. I love all aspects of this lifestyle from the music & artwork, to the food & drink. I consider it a privilege to mingle among all the wonderful people here, especially such talents as the Tikiyaki Orchestra, and artist Tom "Thor" Thordarson. I look forward to reading all the wonderful posts and contributing my 2 cents. Again thank you to all for giving this mis-placed hawaiian boy somewhere to hang-loose.

Howdy! I'm a newbie here on Tiki Central, but i have always been fascinated with Tikis. I live in Pensacola and am VERY interested in the art of Tiki Carving.

I've been a lurker on the site for quite a while, but after meeting BigTikiDude and PolynesianPop (and more, I just can't remember ) at the Tiki Ti the other night, I finally decided to sign up
Looking forward to exploring more of the Tiki world with you guys.

Aloha. I'm new to TC but always loved tikis. I grew up in Hawaii and I'm hapahaole, meaning my mom's from the islands and my Dad's from NY. Been in Las Vegas for the past 30 or more years and I sure miss the islands. I decided to build a tiki bar and lounge in my backyard and stumbled upon TC. Now I'm tiki crazy. I'm inspired by all the artists and creative bars I've seen on the site. I'm even collecting logs so I can try my hand at carving soon. I've already met some TCer's and hope to meet more. What an interesting group of peeps.

I've been lurking this message board for a long while now. I'm an auto tech student in So Cal with hopes of opening a Kustom Auto shop. I love this whole tiki re-revolution and how awesomely it ties into my love of hot-rod and Kustom cars. I hope to be building you folks some rides in the future...MAHALO

My name is noskos, I'm from the Netherlands, I love to travel, eat great food, barbecue, watch arthouse movies and make sip the occasional Tiki Drink.
I've been writing a barbecue blog in Dutch for almost three years now and the occasional cocktail recipe slipped in, so now I've split that up and started a Tiki Drink Blog. It's also in Dutch but you'll get the idea
It can be found at: http://www.tiki-den.com Still working on the layout and graphics.

Aloha everyone! I could have sworn I'd had an account on here and just forgot about it, but it looks like this is my first time posting... Anyway, I tend bar, wait tables, and do pretty much everything else under the sun at Trader Vic's Scottsdale. Come on in for a drink and say hi! Tell 'em the Jester sent ya!
