Hello everyone!

I have been monitoring the board for a little while but finally decided to join and post. I'm kind of in the wasteland of tiki in central Iowa, nothing within 6 hours. Doing my best in this town of red Mai Tai's to educate people about tiki. Thanks.

I feel for you - I went to the U of Iowa in the early 90's and came to the conclusion that regular pilgramages to Chicago was the only cure for my Tiki needs. Had some luck in Iowa City with the junk stores finding mugs, but the drink of choice in IC is cheap beer (and lots of it).

Hello All! So glad to have found this board.I live in the Dayton, Ohio area and was convinced that with the destruction of the Kahiki, that my link with Tiki was all but gone.

Hello! I just registered and posted a message in Collecting Tiki! Yay! I'm no longer just lurking here.

I run a tiki/Hawaiiana store online, just moved to Southern California from the Bay Area, and pretty much love all things tropical. I recently tried to explain to someone how I got into tiki and realized that it must have been brewing for a long time - as a kid I lived a couple blocks up the street from the Tradewinds Motel (they had a really cool old neon sign with polynesian looking sailboats on it) and the Little Outrigger bar (must have driven past them 1000s of times). Plus, I used to go on surfing trips to Hawaii with my parents, so it's no wonder that palm tree dotted islands and rum drinks make me feel at home.

Any tiki folks in the Pasadena area?

Tiki Teresa

Good day, All. I'm TIKIJACK.

I'm new to this whole Tiki thing.... I kinda stumbled onto it while researching the latest request by my wife.... a Tiki Bar on our deck!!!! I was looking for photos and ideas and came across this site. All I can say is, "WOW!!" I'm starting to see why she is so Gung-Ho about this project!! There's no doubt in my mind that once you "Go Tiki," you never "Go Back!!"

Here's the scenario: I am on a limited budget, to start, anyways. I'm sure the bars I've seen in your pictures weren't created overnight, they just keep growing and growing as you keep adding neat Tiki stuff. But I'm looking to start this project and have an "operational" bar by mid-summer. My questions to the group are this:
#1: Where do I begin?
#2: What features MUST I include to have a true Tiki Bar? Are there things that JUST CAN'T be omitted?

Any input from you guys & gals would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!

Hello Tiki Teresa,

I can't think off hand of any other of the regular hoiti toities who are specifically in Pasadena, but you are near the Bahooka. Bahooka is located nearby in Rosemead on Rosemead Blvd. at Lower Azusa Rd. You should consider joining us there on July 10 for the Von Franco "Night of Tiki" show. 7:30 PM. Bring business cards for your store.

tiki teresa, I think Tiki Gardener is from the City of Poodles & I lived there through most of the '80s. My parents still live in Arcadia & I'm certain there're plenty of LA, SFV & SGV Hoity Toities who'll be happy to drop in if invited.

Hey PiPhiRho:

I will be in Pasadena the week of July 4th. Is the Von Franco show private or can I come?

Would love to go.




No, I don't think it is private. Just show up.
