Hello Everyone! I've been converting my backyard into a Tiki retreat. My wife and I went to the Bali Hai in San Diego to have Mai Tais before Tiki shopping and we wound up purchasing "The Goof" & Mr. Bali Hai mugs. That sparked us to start a mug collection. Now, we are trying to play catch up from the places that we've been, but didn't get a mug. I'm here to try to fill in our collection from Trader Vic's (Los Angeles), Tiki Ti, Trader Sam's, Disneyland, Mister Tiki to name a few... Thanks for your help!!!

Hello all. This is King Paris coming to you from the island of Molokini. I, along with my band and dancers, will be appearing for the very first time this summer at Tiki Oasis in San Diego. You can view a shot of us in the current April issue of "Guitar Player" magazine on pages 22 and 23, and also visit us at www.kingparis.com where there are also links to my Youtube channel. Please drop me a line sometime!

Welcome to Tiki Central King Paris. Great videos, should be an interesting show! Ave Maria is hauntingly beautiful, I'm not sure it would be fully appreciated by the heathens at Tiki Oasis!

Hola Jarvis, I am excited to hear that you are opening a Tiki Bar in Rosarito. I have a beach house in Ensenada and would love to have a new place to stop by and have a drink after crossing the border. When making your drink menu, please consider the vintage Trader Vic's or Don the Beachcomber Mai Tai recipe using fresh Limes. Mexico has excellent limes that I use when making a Mai Tai or two. Of course I use the Cuban rums. Keep us posted regarding the opening of your bar.
My brother and our wives would love if you join us in a sunset Mai Tai. Here is a picture of our Mai Tai Sunset from our front yard.

Cool to see Tiki Central. So much tiki in one place. We are just starting to go tiki at our cottage. So far we have EL-wire Tiki, faux palm trees and a community fire pit.

Hello! I just registered today and am looking forward to diving into Tiki Central. I am new to collecting Tiki, but am a 25+ year collector of '60s garage, freakbeat and Aussie beat 45s. I am looking forward to getting to know you.

For as long as I've been around on browsing through the internet, I've never posted in a forum... SO... with that, I hope I'm posting in the right spot. If not, I apologize in advance and I'll have to find my way around learning HOW to post as opposed to WHERE. Anyways, with that ballyhoo out of the way...

ALOHA! I'm Kurt and new to Tiki Central. I am excited to be a new member and hope to join into the conversation and contribute to all things tiki.


I found this place through konakai.com and was happy to actually find a link that is current. I hope the owners of konakai.com will up date their links (if not I know of a volunteer [me] who would be willing to update the links).

Long time Lurker. Just got back from our 3rd Hukilau. My wife and I love it. We love the Mai Kai and we love the culture. Having always loved all things retro. Watching Disney channel as a kid in the 80s (when the cable remote was literally a box on a cable with switches!!) the only programming they had was old Disney reruns of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Zorro, Micky Mouse Club (with Annette of course), and every old cartoon you could shake a stick at. I have a fondness of that time. Also having gone to Disney almost every year of my youth, I still remember the kitschy Florida spots as a kid, Weeki Wachee, the old Cypress Gardens, spook kill, gatorland, and in Miami the old Parrot Jungle, etc. I loved that stuff. Long story short, I love retro nostalgia of the 50-60s.

Have met some great people in person during the Hukilau's and hope to meet more now that I finally decided on a username.

The username originates from
Guayabera. I was born in the states but raised by Cuban parents, in particular my grandparents. Love to discover old Cuban hits of mambo, and vibes of the time.

Wish I would have discovered tiki culture earlier. Miami is not a great place for independent minded people. Specially not like California.

Great to meet you all!!
