well here are our most recent changes to our room. in case you were not aware tikicleen and i are stockton islander nuts! well we finally found some things from there besides mugs.

we had heard that there were some float lamps in SF that were from there but there was no way of authenticating at the time. lately we have been researching the islander an we spoke with the current owner of the building. he told us of how he had sold a bunch of stuff to a guy in the bay area including some small fence/stair rail tikis and several float lamps. that gave us the green light we'd been looking for and we called to see if there were any more. there were one tiki and one float we drove to SF and picked them up today!

you may recognize this tiki from an earlier post from mrsmiley.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=14916&forum=5

it was tagged trader vics but this is exactly what the owner of the islander described that he had sold to the dealer. i think this is a case where trader vics demands more money!


we also bought some of the large tiles they used as screens from the owner of the islander building. they will one day be incorporated into our tiki room. here are some pics of the objects:

Congratulations Drunken Hat,
That is a fine tiki pole, I've had my eye on it for a while. I'm glad that it found a loving home with plenty of Islander artifacts.
Aloha,

Best of luck with your room it looks fantastic. A wonderful thing for any home for all to escape in fantasy at least until that sobering moment comes the next day. The search for hair of the dog resumes and the fantasy lives on!

Last week I had the pleasure to meet up with JungleTrader, the drunken hat, and tikicleen at Minnies. After a round of drinks (or was that two rounds?) and some puupuus, I was invited to visit the Dark Marq Room! What a thrill to see so many mugs in person, which I have only seen in books and postings. And the room was perfectly assembled; everything in the right spot. After another couple rounds of delicious drinks carefully blended by the drunken hat, and some fun conversation by all, I had to leave and come back to the real world.

Cheers to a wonderful tikiroom and its great hosts. I am hoping to have a few more business trips back to the area soon! hint hint... Mahalo for the hospitality in such a warm and exotic environment.

after 4 great years of marriage and home bar operation, the dark marq will no longer operate. this is due to the dissolution of our marriage. while colleen may decide to keep the ripon home bar open, it will not be the dark marq. i will be building another home lounge in the future but when and where is still up in the air. our separation is civil so no worries there. it is time to move on and we both hope that we can do that with all of you.


THE DARK MARQ IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED.

That is the worst thing I have ever read on any thread at anytime ever on Tiki Central.

Wow...is this why Tiki Central was down so long today?

I am shocked and hope things work out for you both...you both have been great friends here and in person.

All my best,

PTD

The Drunken Hat and Tiki Cleen, You were 2 of the first people I met on this board and 2 of the nicest people I have ever met. This is sad news indeed. I wish you both nothing but good health and happiness.
