Hello Tiki Afficionados!

My Name is TikiShipman and I love the Tiki culture and lifestyle. I'm also a fan of Mid-Century, Googie, vintage cars & trailers, vintage men's hats & watches, and vintage cocktails.

I've been familiar with the Tiki culture probably all my life, since I was a sixties kid, but probably didn't take full notice of it until "The Book of Tiki" came out. Just recently I've rediscovered it again, but now with more vigor!

Great to be here, and Aloha!

P.S. The Tiki mask above in the photo is my first acquisition. Picked it up from the Value Village for $9.99!
Love it!

Hello!

Mike here from the West Coast of Canada -- been lurking a while and decided to take the plunge and register and join in on the fun.

I'm new to the whole Tiki culture, though I always loved going to the
Tiki Tiki restaurant when it was in Edmonton decades ago. I mix various Tiki-related drinks at home, though no Tiki Bar just yet. Next step: learning some Polynesian cuisine. Mmmmm.

Looking forward to joining in the conversations on the site.

Mahalo!

Hi y'all. My husband and I just bought a midcentury split-level home with an inground pool and large screened porch. It cries out for at least a little tiki decor.

However, being a lifelong central Missourian, I have not been exposed to much/any of the tiki vibe. I have one ceramic tiki mug from a yard sale (printed with a sorority party logo on the back), and a ceramic statuette from a relative's estate. I've seen some tiki-type stuff on a trip to Key West, but the Into Page said "Carribean is not Tiki", so I will have to navigate that carefully.

I'll be mostly lurking and soaking up the zeitgeist, trying not to make an @$$ of myself if I do post.


Liz

Longtime lurker, new registrant, live in Tampa Bay area. Can't say I'm a full tiki devotee (yet?), but as a student of cocktails I enjoy the information and enthusiasm imparted here!

Hello everyone

I'm a new member that is interested in opening a Tiki Bar in Jacksonville, Florida. I came upon this website while conducting market research. It appears that there are not any known tiki bar's in the Jacksonville area.
If you are reading this and happen to know of one, please reply or contact me.

I look forward to to meeting as many of you as I can as I move deeper into developing the Delta Lounge Tiki Bar.

-Rob

Hello erverybody! I'm very nervous entering the world of tiki central for the first time, but now it's done and I think I'm fine. I'm from Germany and my interest is mainly focused on the world of music (exotica,surf) but also like art and crafts. Ok then, cheers!

Newb here. 32 YO male visited Hawaii about 7 times and loved every minute. Can't wait to go back. USMC proud and finally introduced my family to the collectibles of Polynesian culture. Look forward to seeing what everyone else has discovered.

Hi Guys,

I have been running the tiki gauntlet below the radar for a number of years and have enjoyed reading the posts here on Tiki Central. I am not what you would call a "card carrying artist," but I do dabble in graphic design and carving. I will probably get around to posting a few pics in the near future. I hope you like my take on the subject.

My user name is based upon my esteemed appreciation for Bourbon (not whiskey). If you see me at Trader Vic's in Atlanta I will probably be enjoying a Honi Honi rather than a Mai Tai.

Hang Loose!

After being on a ....well....rather long hiatus (aka college and such), I figured it'd be safe to re-introduce myself. I'm Andy. Haven't posted in this forum in YEARS. And I'm serious....it's quite sad. I'm looking forward to posting here more often!
