Hi Everyone,

First of all I am new to the forum - thanks for the warm welcome! I am a huge cocktail fan and have enjoyed reading some of your recipe ideas to try at home. I currently work with Funkin - who sell a range of 100% Natural Fruit Cocktail mixers, simply add ice and alcohol - perfect for parties!

Have a look at their website as it explains their whole range and you can even find a cocktail A - Z if you are hunting for any recipes
http://www.funkin.co.uk/

Look forward to chatting with you all you cocktail lovers

best wishes,
Catherine

Hello everyone! I am brand spanking new to the world of Tiki. I am not sure if I am posting this correctly but here goes.

I am looking for a recipe or a menu description for Hawaiian Chicken. The dish is from a Dobbs House Luau restaurant in Memphis served during the 1970's. I have searched diligently for the recipe but have not had any luck. I have seen the name on a menu posted somewhere (I have beeen to tons of search sites....)but am not able to read the description.

This is a requested "Favorite Food" for our next class reunion (Class of 1976) and I have been appointed to find it. (There is a bet going on that I can't find it because others have "looked" for it but they are not me and I want to win this bet!!!

Does anyone out there in Tikiland have a Luau menu from Memphis Luau that has Hawaiian Chicken on it? Please please PLEASE would you send me the description? Best we can remember the dish had chicken with ham in it some kind of way and a sauce.

Thank you so much for your time!!

I was never into Tiki but I am finding myself fascinated by it since I have seen so much since beginning my search for this dish!! I can't wait to learn more!!

Hello!

I am plumbgone from the great state of Mississippi! I was never into Tiki until I started looking for a recipe for an item served at the Luau in Memphis. I find myself being drawn into your world and liking it!! The Luau closed befor I had the pleasure of discovering it but my husband and classmates all ate there and loved it. The search for a recipe for Hawiian Chicken had brought me here. I look forward to learninf more about the world of Tiki!!

Shelby

Aloha all! I have been following this site for awhile and have been waiting for the right time to join so that I could share a passionate project I have been working on. I have been a tikiphile my whole life. My earliest memories were of pulling into the lavish Polynesian Village resort in Walt Disney World when I was an infant around 1973. I have vivid memories of the tiki torch lighting each night and running to catch my brother Todd over the dark grey lava stone pathways over the hill to see the electical water parade on Seven Seas Lagoon.
This along with my father's love of Martin Denny and Lex Baxter exotica sounds has deeply embedded in me a love and comfort for true Polynesian Pop.
My dream tiki experience was to have an A-frame Tiki Terrace which i built over the summer in my back yard.





That A-frame is gorgeous. I think I have something new for the bucket list.

Hi,

I'm pretty new to tiki culture. I started playing ukulele and lap steel about a year ago after years of playing guitar. In researching music to learn I stumbled onto Exotica music and found a whole genre that I was only vaguely aware of before.

I am currently stuck in Minnesota, but I am fortunate enough to live down the street from Psycho Suzie's where I can go listen to Exotic-A-Go-Go perform often.

I'm happy and excited about all of this. Just when I was about to totally give up on any kind of pop culture. Thank you for creating and being a part of Tiki Central.

Mahalo

Hello! My name is Garret. I am a 23 year old up and coming bartender in New York City. I love Tiki and have probably met many of you in person at various events. I got into cocktails through collecting exotica records and it's great to finally be on Tiki Central.

Recently, I made some Tiki drinks at Lani Kai during the Appleton Remixology competition. I created a Latin inspired Tiki drink called the Guerolito. As you can see in the photo below, we had fun with a "Tiki cholo" who interacted with the audience.

Hi, All:
I've been lurking on Tiki Central for years, and sipping tiki drinks for even longer.
Finally signed up to post a couple of pics of our home tiki bar, the "Lava Pit Lounge".


Thanks for giving us tiki lovers a place to hang out!
--Jo

Aloha! My wife and I own the Banana Hut Hawaiian BBQ in Eureka, California. Recently, we bought the Kona Kai restaurant in Illinois, and shipped it here to northern California. Sadly, there were only two large tiki's left when all was said and done, and we're keeping those for our next restaurant. One of the things we got alot of, were hand carved outrigger canoes, we got six, and I would like to sell two. Oceanic Arts told me that they imported these from western Samoa. Other than trying to sell these on e-Bay, does anyone have any ideas? Thanks alot. Ken. P.S., if you want to see our restaurant, it is www.thebananahut.com
