Woops, I also originally posted in the wrong place. I'm in Scottsdale, Arizona, close to the Drift Lounge (very cool tiki bar). We have a Polynesian style backyard to die for, vintage mugs, huge vintage outdoor masks, etc. I am Mrs. Arizona 2000, a professional pianist, ex-professional ballet dancer, competition ballroom dancer, and a 2-time breast cancer survivor. Chemo and all in 2001. Chemo had lots of similarities to excessive rum drinking hangovers! I loved the Palm Springs Tiki Oasis IV. It was my 3rd year in a row.

Aloha to all. I had my first TO experience this year and I am completely hooked. I had such a wonderful experience with some of the warmest, friendliest people I had ever met. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone even better.

Thanks for all the kindness.

Hi, this is MrTikiAZ I'm in Phoenix and in the East valley and jsut build a 20 foot by 10 foot Tiki Room and will be ready for Tiki Parties and Entertaining by July or August 1, 2004. I'm single and attractive and invite any Tikiettes (yes the girls) to say hello and all guys are invited to the parties too of course. Just looking for a Miss TikiAZ at the moment to also help host our Tiki Parties with me...... It will be a very authentic room for sure.... Feel free to contact me at [removed by forum admin] if you're in the Phoenix area to contribute to this fun room in AZ. Mr. TikiAZ (Scott)

Hello fellow tiki fans. I've been lurking for a bit and thought I would step up and say hello. I run a website called Java's Bachelor Pad http://www.javasbachelorpad.com which features some tiki items...mostly classic South Seas stories from vintage men's magazines. I also host a weekly lounge/exotica radio show called, what else, "The Bachelor Pad." I'm all about the Martin Denny, Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman, Don Tiki, and the like.

I don't know about you, but my tiki collection is taking over my real-life bachelor pad. I've got mugs everywhere, more little statues than I can count, some very cool hula girl items...plus more Hawaiian records than I care to admit.

My whole tiki obsession is kinda funny when you consider I live in the middle of corn fields in the center of Illinois. Any other Midwest tiki folks out there?


Keep Swinging!

Awwww...thanks. I'm always happy to find fans of the program out there. When I do my show live, it feels like all of 3 people are listening.

Aloha, I'm sbmoor and a local of the DC area. I'm thinking about doing a Tiki Tour (bike tour) connecting all of the tiki bars here, though there were many more in my native state, Florida. Anyway, hola.

Hello everyone,

My name is Erick, AKA Red Sand Man, and I am an addict........to tiki that is. My addiction began in my teen years hanging out with a gang from the wrong side of the Pacific. It started off with what seemed like a harmless plate of spam and rice. Next thing I knew I had a small pile of slippahs outside my shack door. I was stealing away in the dark am hours in hopes to snag myself a few choice waves. On the road trips up and down the coast, as we passed liquour stores, bars, hotels, and apartment buildings with the polynesian/oceania/hawaiian theme. I would think to myself wouldn't it be cool to live there.

Well as I grew up and began to assimilate into society I would have tiki binges......Taking a date to Sam's seafood for the show. Picking up the occasional mug or hapawood tiki and hiding it away in my closet so the girlfriend du jour wouldn't ask me "What are you keeping that tacky ugly thing for?" (My wife still says this, but at least she doesn't ditch them on me)

For the longest time I believed that I was alone, that I was sick. Then I found Tiki Central,......and I realized that I was not alone. Thank You Tiki Central.
