The Target in my area has a whole bunch of the Chinese Checkers sets on sale for $10.48. Let me know if I can assist in sale/trade.

Juno, my man! Yes, I would love a Chinese Checker set. Central KS and SW Mo have no super targets, which is where those things seem to reside.

In the garden section of my local Tarjey, over the weekend, my husband reported that they have a $299 version of this bar that was really decent quality. I went down to see it on display, and it's NICE! The only difference between it and the one on-line was it was darker, and it didn't have that cheapo rattan topper. Real bamboo, and there is also a backyard gazebo for the same price $299. The whole collection was called "Mai Tiki", which also included patio furniture and a kind of neat bamboo fountain.

It was on display but not for sale yet. I was told I had to call around to see when the shipment would be coming in. But it was the perfect size for a small backyard like we have.

I couldn't find anything on this bar at my local target, I also went online which was just a big hassle. Does someone have a picture of the $299 bar or know where it is on the website? This sounds like a bar I would like to get my hands on.

Aaargh!

I went to my Target to check these out (the gazebo sounds terrific) and not only do they not have any of it, but they have emptied out ALL outdoor furniture! In its place is the back-to-school stuff, and I was told that it would be replaced by Halloween stuff next, not outdoor furniture.

The irony, for you non-Texans, is that summer is *FAR* from over here. Every day in the mid to high 90's.

Bastards.....

I finally got my hands on one of the Mai Tiki gazebos at Target:

The item number is 009050230 for the gazebo $299.99
The bar is: 009001665 $299.99. I don't have a pic of the bar, but will get one the next time I go there.

Aloha Dawn32,

While this photo is more of CherryCapri, this is an example of Bamboo Ben's tiki bars.

The Mai Tiki Gazebo is at my local Target now along with the whole set including large and small bamboo fountain and bamboo bar and stools. They have it all out in a floor display. And, BTW, they have some of the most kick ass modern furniture in now. Drool.

Does Wayne Coombs know about this?

We are seriously considering this if we can afford it soon.

Here's the Target tiki Bar:

and...


" Home entertainment bar made of natural bamboo wood, tan painted finish
2 shelves, 2 tracks; capacity depends on what stemware is used
Wipe clean with damp cloth for longer life, cover or store when not in use
Bamboo is a natural material that will split and crack, this is not a defect
69-5/8Lx33-3/4Wx93-1/8H"
Shipping fee: $130.89
*** This item can only be shipped to the 48 contiguous states. We regret it cannot be shipped to APO/FPO, Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico.

*** I bet they're bumming in Hamaii!

If you can't find it using the links, just go to target.com and do a search for "tki bar" - good luck!

I wasn't crazy about the tiki bar, but the gazebo is tres chic! It is made of metal, painted to look like bamboo. I honestly couldn't tell until I touched the floor model and to be honest it kind of shocked me. It also has mosquito netting around all four sides. It is definitely on my want list. I could always get a Bamboo Ben bar for the gazebo!

West Seattle Target has the bar and gazebo set up. The bamboo used in both (the gazebo is a mix of fake and real) has been painted a bamboo color with light brown highlights. This was probably done to give a more uniform look to all the bamboo used but the paint makes the bar look super fakey. There was also signs of chipping and scraping on the floor model so it's possible the bamboo was not prepared properly for painting. The bar seems shaky and may not hold up to steady use. Splitting was evident and despite Target's claim in the Kaikaina post above ("Bamboo is a natural material that will split and crack, this is not a defect") this may be a sign of bamboo not dried fully before use. As the bar is constructed almost entirely (if not completely) of bamboo continued cracking and possible warping could seriously compromise the structure.

It's a nice design that'd be great in a small space, but the paint makes it look like molded plastic. It'd probably look better in low light. And for the price ($300) most anyone could create a much sturdier home bar.

That and anybody over the weight of 50 pounds wil probably break the bar stools that come with it. I sat on one - I am a sleek 235 pounds - and it swayed like a Drunk at happy hour!
