Hey Tiki Central!

I'm ArchTiki, Signing in from Oakland, CA. New to Tiki, I had been frequenting Smuggler's Cove, the Tonga Room, Forbidden Island, etc. And decided to try my own hand at creating some of these concoctions. I have since picked up the Smuggler's Cove cocktail book, and begun a mini tiki liquor cabinet, taking after the Author's system of rum categories. I currently have Hamilton's Jamaican Gold, Mount Gay Eclipse, Plantation 5 year, Ron Bermudez Aniversario 12 Year, Cruzan Black Strap, and Hamilton's 151.

I'm a bit of a kitchen tinkerer, and fermentation enthusiast; I brew beer, bake bread (sourdough), make mead, and ferment veggies (sauerkraut, peppers, etc). Another passion of mine is ciriculture, the propagation and growing of citrus, along with the fruit/veggie/herb garden in my small backyard.

I look forward to getting to know the tiki community here and locally!

A warm welcome to all the new posters. Sounds like some of you already have a Tiki spot set up. Have fun building your paradise.

You had me at sourdough. Do you also make kimchee?

Howdy folks! I'm Jayme, in New Braunfels (which is between San Antonio and Austin for you non-Texans). The Wife and I kind of stumbled into the whole tiki thing in recent years following the purchase of our current home, which came with a pool, palm trees and a patio area that just begged for a tiki bar. So I built one this summer (it needs a few finishing touches before I share here). Checking out the other Home Tiki threads here have inspired us, and plans are afoot. And to think that we started this before we even knew nouveau tiki was even a thing!

The day job is media relations, but I'm a writer by inclination. I focus mostly on genre--science fiction, fantasy, etc.--but published a non-fiction history of the infamous Chicken Ranch brothel earlier this year. Go figure. Other interests of mine include homebrew, astronomy, photography and orchard stuff. I also have a thing for passiflora, which should dovetail nicely with tiki.

Gosh I hope this is the right place to post. Hi there, I'm brand new to this forum!

I'm a recent tiki drinks fan from Bristol in the UK (somewhere with a small history of ageing the early landed styles, hence the username). The Smuggler's Cove book tipped me off about this site.

I've become a real rum nut in, really, just the last 6 months, although I've been a big Scotch fan for a long time.

Really looking forward to discussing and sharing tiki drinks tips with you all. The tiki bar scene is a bit weaker here than in the States, but there are a handful! E. x

Welcome, Early Landed Larry! As you are beginning your journey into the joys of rum, know that there are a number here who also appreciate good scotches and much more.

But the real cool thing about you joining us here is that Tiki Central will teach, and you will drink. You win!

Wishing you a great time here on TC. Cheers from Florida!

Hi all, Mark from Ottawa Ontario. Just want to say hi and big thanks to all those who have posted travel info, drink info, well all of the info. Recently retired and this site has been a treasure trove of knowledge that we have used to plan our recent amazing desperately seeking tiki road trips over the past 18 months. The name is a play on a local cycle tour however Ontario is most certainly a very rum deprived location, which makes re-creating drinks way more of a challenge than it should be, but a challenge I, my wife and neighbours have been enjoying immensely.

Other hobbies include some photography, all things Batman and also volunteer at local community radio station with a weekly radio program focusing in on avant rock, prog, fusion, jazz etc.

So thanks again to all who participate in these forums, the crafters keeping this alive and well everyone.

mark

Quite a few actually. Wasn't really sure where "road trips" would go as they are not location specific.

Last Jan went from Charlotte to West Coast of Fla thru the keys up to Ft. Lauderdale and then back north through Atlanta. Next was Vegas and Palm Springs. A trip to Toronto in between when Martin Cate was in town doing the book tour and just finished Fla (we have friends who winter there) to N'awlins and back again.

Aloha Everyone,

I've been lurking around Tiki Central for years admiring everyone's postings from Tiki bars, art work, and music. I didn't know there was so much awesomeness out there for Tiki. My first trip to the Caribbean back in 1990 was my starting point. It opened my eyes to a whole new world but it could had been the Rum talking. What really encourage my Tikiness was Hawaii. 2007 was the year I went coconuts with my first cruse to Hawaii. I hit four Islands Oahu, Maui, Hawaii and Kauai. My wife and I renew our vows with about 75 other couples. I walked away with 5 Aloha shirts, Plumerias, Hula Daddy's Kona Coffee and many many pictures. That trip encourage me to build my outdoor Tiki Bar (which is the reason I'm here). I'll post pictures of my Tiki bar later. I just wanted to say thanks to Tiki Central for all my crazy ideas. You guys are awesome.

Jungle Jeff
