Hi all,
Just thought I'd post my intro into the wide and wondrous world wide web of tikiness here. Been an occasional lurker for a bit.
I'm just a poor working schmoe who's a Chicago native and has been a tiki admirer for as long as I can remember (even as a kid I loved pineapple and tried convincing my family to take us all to Hawaii instead of Disneyland) but can't say I've been a full-fledged tikiphile until lately where I think I'm becoming obsessed with cocktail recipes. Love most anything mid-century that fuels my frenetic energy, but love the mellowness of just kicking back and sipping a crafted cocktail listening to exotica... just writing that is making me want to do just that.

Thanks all
Tiki Louie

Hi. Don't have much to say yet, though I do have fond memories of going to Kelbo's from time to time as a kid (sure, the food may not been anything special, but the atmosphere was wonderful, and a Zombo beats a Shirley Temple all hollow when it comes to non-alcoholic drinks!).

Can I re-introduce myself? It's been quite a while since I posted, but a recent visit to the Mai-Kai has put new life in my bones! Or was it the fog cutter? Anyway, I hope to post some of my photos soon. Thanks, Rocky.

As far as introductions go - I am a Detective at the Crime Jazz Unit. One of our more trusted snitches squealed about your website and this time his information was as good as my Scotch.

Now... Crime Jazz may be our name but our game also includes various forms of like minded music including your beloved Tiki. Heck, one night years ago we hauled in Les Baxter and Martin Denney on a 'drunk and disorderly' charge and they left loads of records behind in the drunk tank!

The Crime Jazz Unit is a half hour radio show, loved by KXLU and comes to you from not so foggy London England every other Sunday.

We here at the Crime Jazz Unit think your site has guts and great information and that's all we can ask for...

Pop in for a visit and I'll pull the cork from the bottle in my desk drawer and serve us a couple paper cups of hootch...

http://crimejazzunit.blogspot.com/

As we like to say - give it a listen, if you got the guts!

CJU

Do tell! We have a smidge of tiki in the area, and are always looking for more! Please let us in on it, maybe in the New England Tiki thread! There's lots of local ohana that would check it out.

Aloha!!


...again!

I was on here many years ago (pre-Kids!) under the login: Zuke

Can't seem to login under that name and it's tied to an email addy that no longer exists. I even found my original post here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=6&forum=1&vpost=150366

I'll paste that below and UPDATE the relevant info.

------------



Greetings!

Long time lurker and finally joining in the discussions, since I finally have something to share. Completed the build on my long planned dream TIKI BAR!

I owe a lot to this board here. Got many of ideas from some of the picture posts. Learned I didn't have to buy my bamboo via a website, but rather right at my local Pier 1 Imports and Hobby Lobby.

I'll post a Thread with pics and details about my Tiki Bar. But of course just wanted to say HI first. I belong to one message board already that I post at quite a bit.

And this place seems about on par with them in the friendly dept.

My vitals:

-42 on April 21st
-Married, 2 kids (almost 3 and almost 6)
-Work as a Email Marketer/Web Designer & now Hawiian Shirt entrepreneur!
-Lived in the Chicago 'Burbs my entire life

I have lots of close friends and consider myself very social. We plan LOTS of events and are fond of our annual traditions (super bowl, football pools, pub crawls, poker games, golf outings, etc.).

I'm a poker fantatic. Play in many regular games.

Big fan of the "mid-century" look. So, attracted to Tiki of course.

Grew up with parents who played a LOT of swing and jazz and grew up liking it myself and play a lot at home. Massive record collection! But I dig everything from Dixieland jazz to punk, really.

I am also insane about movies. Have a pretty large collection of that too and a pretty nice Home Theater right next to the ole Tiki Bar that I'm pretty proud of too.

So... as you can see, I'm really quiet and shy.

Questions? Comments? Flames?


-----------


...so most still applies!! Been a tough few years with raising my two boys and being unemployed for a bit. Things are settling down in all aspects and a little more time for my passions: like TIKI culture and graphics. I have been painting more murals of late and even added to my Tiki Basement bar. (The original pictures of that are here: http://www.zortea.us/TikiBar/index.php


We recently even went to Hale Kahiki out here in River Grove (I have pics I'll post here later!) and been hard at work developing a private label Hawiian Shirt company with a friend from high school! Very early stages, but you can see that site here: http://www.badshirtgoodtimes.com/

I hope to contribute more here and maybe get out to some events, now that the wife and I occasionally LEAVE the house!! We're planning on hitting some tiki bars in LA when we head out there on business soon.

Look forward to interacting more here!

My name is Lou Lou, but my screen name here is Fiji Mermaid, which is the name of the home tiki bar I have had for a little over a year. I have just moved to a new location, so the bar is going to debut on Friday August 5th. I am renting, and therefore don't have quite the depth of decor that some on here have. However, I have grand delusions for when I own another house (the one I currently own is infested by an ex spouse), or even an actual bar.
I have been collecting tiki, exotica and mid-century tchotchkes for several years, as has my current husband. I also have a decent and growing collection of tiki mugs, muu muus and Hawaiian and Exotica vinyl records.
I live in New Orleans, a block from the Fairgrounds Race Course, which is where Jazz Fest is held, if anyone has ever been.
Some of you may know that New Orleans is the home of Tales of the Cocktail, a mixologists convention. I was fortunate to meet Beachbum Berry this last weekend there, which was a geek-out for me.
You can find the Fiji Mermaid on Facebook, and I make a mean Mai Tai, as well as some great originals, so if you're in town, see if I'm open!
