Thanks Jab!
I'm gonna try to make it up to Prince George, BC and check out Esthers. Once I do, I'll post my report.

Greetings Slacks.

I was just moaning to a friend about how few Canucks there are on TC (I'm trying to "recruit" him). Great to have another Albertan aboard!

Sweet Daddy T.

Thanks Sweet Daddy Tiki

It's great to be here and to feel so welcome. Do you have any good tips on where to find tiki in Edmonton? I head up there every now and then when I visit my folks.
Of course, I don't wanna cut into yr share. I'm sure it's few and far between like here in Calgary...

Cheers!

Slacks

Yes, I have been abstaining for a while, and I feel that I am now "shiny and new". New username, new email, new fresh powder in my mind awaiting the footprints of the mighty tiki gods. How could I have stayed away for so long? Can the gods forgive me? Will the new altar under construction appease their wrath? Will anyone remember a wahine formerly known as daisymay? Only the great Tiki knows...

Daisymay?!!! Is that really you??? Welcome back!! How long has it been? 2-3 years?

For those who don't know, Daisymay co-founded Tiki Central with Hanford back when it was a club on Yahoo.

I'm glad you threw in that last bit -- I'd hate to see a bloody gangland war for control of Alberta's Tiki turf. As we're both gentlemen, let's agree to this: you control everything Tiki from Red Deer south, and I'll control the northern half of the province. And if that pesky coconutz gives you any trouble, I'll lend you a few of my boys to help you take care of him.

Seriously, the thrift stores here are not bad, I've found some cool stuff recently (see my posts in Collecting Tiki). I go to several thrift stores quite regularly. I'm not gonna tell you which ones, but I won't get upset if you scoop me on something.

Let me know when you come to town & maybe we can hit the Tropika for a Mai Tai or two.

Yes, it's me. I think it has been about a year or so. I guess I have some reading to do, so my next post should be in another year. Quick, somebody get me a !

I live up in Alberta, Canada. Lovely place, but kinda barren of tiki. The one Tiki bar here is weird and all post-modernish. I wonder what "Tiki Road Trip" has to say about it?...



Welcome Slacks! Calgary, where I was born and my Mom and most of my family still live. Still haven't been to whatstitcalled...Bamboo Tiki Room, maybe we'll be coming up in February though and I'll check it out. James gives it a mention in "Road Trip", but hasn't been there so no review. Maybe you could send him one for the next edition. Good luck on hunting, the stuff lurks out there (my Mom got me a nice PMP not long ago), but persistence and frequency of thrifting are the only way in Canada.

aloha,
emspace.

Aloha!
My partner and I recently settled in Los Angeles and were so excited to begin exploring the rich tiki culture of yesteryear and today. We started making the rounds to the SoCal tiki shrines including the Caliente Tropics where we met our new tiki friends (Al, Shelly & Tina) on a fated night for an impromptu libations luau. We'll never forget that magical night and are happy to be a part of the tiki family. We can't wait to meet the rest of you at upcoming events.

Best Wishes,
TJ & Jay

Hey

I stumbled onto this site in a google search. Lucky me!

The "Creating Tiki" forum has really got me primed to try some carving. Tikis are kinda hard to find in Florida (for me at least) so why not make my own?

I had my first trip to Oahu a couple of weeks ago and will post some of my finds in the "Collecting Tiki" forum when I get the ol' digi camera fired up.

Mahalo for this great forum!
