"The Granite Tiki Lounge" is the name I've chosen for my two tiki bars (indoor and outdoor) named after my home state of course, and pictures will be coming soon!
PS. If anyone knows where I can buy a Granite Tiki, any info would be appreciated.

Mrs. RB & I have finally settled on "The Aloha Deck" for our outside bar area. We have a small backyard that we completely decked over, and set up shop there in the summer.

Always in flux, The Lagoon Lounge is currently sporting some terrific new pieces by Basement Kahuna and others.
I'm waiting to get my TIki Tony Tiki in before taking more shots. There are a LOT more plants. More bamboo. An active volcano and rum distillery.

Well.
Not the last two.

But it's still cool.

Hutikihi.

I've been working down in the basement and wrote "Git 'er done" on the lighted menu board (like it would actually inspire me). I changed it when the 4th of July came around:

Recently, Steve and I looked up "monkey" on a hawaiian-english online dictionary, (Mo'o and Lolo's Cyber Hawaiian Dictionary) and it said the translation for "monkey" is "Keko". So since we collect and love monkeys, and his nickname for me is "monkey", we have affectionately dubbed our tiki room "Keko Cove".

Now we just have to figure out how to pronounce Keko correctly. I say "Keh-Koe". He says "Kay-Koe". Anyone know? lol!

Steve & Lenore
(Proud parents of The Keko Cove! Even if they cant pronounce it yet!)

"The Little Grass Shack." Appropriate since my home is a wee one room studio.

Way back as a Marine brat in Okinawa in the 1970s, there used to be a couple of places that inspired me for naming my Tiki space.

On Fort Buckner (later Camp Butler), there was a restaurant called 'The Outrigger'. The place was run by AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service), and used to sell burgers, grilled items, etc. Anybody else who was a military brat will probably never forget the taste of AAFES chocolate milk. Anyway, I digress.

The decor was strictly 1960's (AAFES) cafeteria style, with a metal artwork that looked vaguely like an outrigger. IIRC, the colors were that 70s burnt orange and yellow/gold color... and probably some avocado green thrown in as well.

The other place was called 'The Lantern'. It was a snack bar and arcade on the north side of Camp Butler. The arcade was not a video arcade (this was early to mid 70s), but an assortment of non-video arcade games, like pinball, electronic bowling games, and the like.

Like the great Tiki places of the past, the Outrigger and the Lantern are long gone and forgotten. When I left the island for the last time in the early 80s, they were replacing the Outrigger with a Burger King, or some such thing. The Lantern was long gone by that time.

So, in honor of these places, I named my Tiki space 'The Outrigger'. 'Lantern' doesn't really fit in with Tiki decor, but I've dedicated my lava lamp to the joint.

Sorry to drone on for so long. This got me on a nolstaga trip... but anybody who lived/was stationed on Okinawa at the time may remember these places.

Our tiki space is pretty much the entire backyard. We have affectionately named the whole space the Big Woo Bar 'n Grill.

Soon the Woo will welcome one and all! Soooooon!

Just bought a new homestead and have started on a tiki bar extending off our built-in outdoor kitchen in our pool area. It's going to take a while.
It has affectionately been dubbed "The Imbibatorium"
