Greetings. I just discovered this great site. I've always loved this stuff but have a renewed appreciation of it with the artwork of Shag as well as a mid-life crisis ( hey come here you hot 18 year old!). I'm interested in learning more about the "Tiki Philosophy" but don't know where to start. Please feel free to e-mail me. Cowabunga!

Hi.
I've been reading this site for a month or two now, but I am starting to have questions, so I joined. (I haven't asked the questions yet, because I'm trying to think how to ask them without inviting the typical RTFM answer.)

I'm a thirty year old semi-geek who lives in Carrumbia, Souf Cackalackie, but I spend most of my time mentally residing in a pineapple under the sea.

Whoa! When my friends and I met you all on the first night of your tiki crawl a few weeks ago at Trader Sam's I had NO IDEA what a MASSIVE and impressive group you all are!

I'm so glad to be moving to the bay area knowing that there are like minded folks out that way - Since my man Jimmy Buffett doesn't play shows in the vacinity I'm going to have to exercise my tropical drinking muscles at the city's many fine tiki bars.

Look forward to seeing some of you out and about!

Welcome to TC.
To walk you must crawl first! Of course if you do it right, you'll be crawling again from time to time.

Hi everyone! Dano (like in "Book'em Dano") here. Coming to you from So. Cal. After tagging everything doing with "Tiki" in my Favorites, I ended up here (actually spied along time, before joining). Purchased a "Bamboo Ben" bar and was on my way. Love the Tiki Lifestyle (laid back, booze, parties, booze, warm island breezes, booze, and of course beautiful women).

Not that I know of . . . but working on it! I'll have my first Tiki Party this summer and try to convert the civs. . . Ah, just noticed, there was no question mark at the end of your sentence. Can't wait to meet you all!

Howdy all!

I'd call myself a gremmie tiki-phile, spending years loving The Enchanted Tiki Room at the Big D since I was a wee lad (I'll never forget my first encounter with flaming drinks from the restaurant that used to be aside it), listening to old LPs of my parents over and over, eating at the Bahooka, and being spoiled by west coast weather.

After a long time off the path of Tiki, I've come back to it, after a couple recent incidents all colliding at once: 1) I was doing some research for a Kelbo's birthday party for my sister-in-law (her favorite restaurant) so I could make some graphics for it and learn how to mix authentic drinks at the party, 2) I was sick of the music I was currently listening to and checking out what new stuff I could find on the web, and 3) I totalled my car in a rather harrowing accident, giving me a chance to reflect and reprioritize my life a bit. But enough with the long-winding explanations.

Luckily, Tangaroa smiled down on me, and I found Tiki Central. It pretty much re-ignited my dormant interest, so I've been reading up on new places, purusing music and shirts, buying some books, and getting my love on for all the great modern interpertations of Tikidom, as well as the old classics.

I can see here a real appreciation for the genre and a lot of real talent in bringing tiki back for a new generation. That's really pretty cool, and inspiring. I think I'm going to take some ceramics classes, just because seeing so many great projects makes me want to step away from the computer, and make some art with my hands.

Anyway, this is a great place, and thanks all for making it so worth coming to.
