Hi there, my name is Gabe, I'm selling some vintage rattan furniture, so wanted to post it here, as it seems like there would be folks who would be interested. Thanks!

Hello all,

Long time lurker, first post- and after my first Tiki Oasis this year, it's high time I did.

It was a love of vinyl that brought me to this community, but I've always been an unconscious tiki-phile,
being born & bred in the burbs of Los Angeles in the early 1970s.

Two summers ago, I became interested in Tiki drinks - which led me to seek and/or create some unusual drink ingredients (falernum, pimento dram, spiced syrups, Fassionola, Okolehao)...

And more recently, I'm researching pre-Prohibition cocktails (1803-1919) and thus have been seeking a new set of ingredients<br> (Old Tom gin, Creme Violette, Boker's bitters, Creme Yvette, Amer Picon, Abbott's bitters, genever from Holland, absinthe from Europe, amaro from Italy, weird fruit brandies etc.).

I'm reading "the classics" and absorbing "vintage mixology" from many sources e.g. The bum, Victor Bergeron, David Wondrich.

I'm building a liquor cabinet for “COCKTAILIAN” research and experimentation.

more soon... see you at Cap City Tiki Crawl this weekend.

Good Morning All!

Just wanted to introduce myself , my names Brad and I just moved to a house with a real backyard to tiki out! For most of my adult life you could find me at the Mai Kai bar drinking their barrel o rum, dreaming of one day having my own outdoor tiki bar. I'm obsessed with tiki culture( I bought a house because it has port holes in the kitchen), noir films and guitars. Included a picture of my old tiki bar from the one room apt I just moved out of. If anyone one can direct me to some great tiki statue carving folks in the Miami area, It would be much appreciated. Now i'm off to a real nautical/polynesian scrap store,
http://www.stoneage-antiques.com, to find me some rope and sea glass!!




Sorry if the picture gives anyone a stiff neck!!

- Brad

Hello everyone!

My name is Ray and I live in the East Bay of the SF Bay Area, near Berkeley. I am a DJ, producer, and the singer / main songwriter of my band. Love spinning lounge & exotica sets! Fell in love with tiki stuff as a kid going to Trader Vic's and it never went away. Am a long time listener but a first time caller - have perused the board for a long time and figured I'd finally sign up.

Cheers!!

Welcome Kumu.
Have you been to the Windward Passage?
It has been around forever in columbus and is a rusty dusty place that
Kahiki types like as well.
We go there often.
Do not get a Mai Tai, do get prime rib.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Windward-Passage/111596592214286

Eat at the bar and tell Shawn that (tiki)John sent you.
It's fun to sit at the bar and talk about old Columbus history, well that and cartoons, music, ect.

Greetings tiki maniacs! I have just officially re-open our Hawaiian/Polynesian Tiki restaurant and tiki bar in Humble, TX heehaw! So, Aloha y'all. I've fallen in love with this tiki craze since performing at the Mai-Kai restaurant in 1986-1992. My wife, I and kids have performed there and I was their fire knife dancer hired from Oahu and my wife was the MC. We had the privilege working there when the owner and founder Bob Thornton was still around. He was a man with integrity and someone not to messed with. We both had a lot of discussion while drinking in the Molokai room with me asking all kinds of information about opening a tiki room business, when he speaks I listen and jot everything down in my notes to one day this day will come. We are excited and looking forward to business up with y'all...Mahalo!

Hi All,
I have been poking around this forum for a while now but I finally want to start posting and participating. I am located in sunny Vista, CA. and I have been into Tiki of a long time. I got seriously into collecting tiki only about 5 years ago. I have probably met several of you in passing at events and I hope to meet many more of you. I could use some help identifying some pieces in my collection so I hope to post that later.

thanks,
Coconutmonkey
