Bump.

Just this week I was talking about tiki with a twenty-something coworker who’s originally from Georgia, and mentioned that there are only two Trader Vic’s remaining in the US, one of which is in Atlanta. She immediately started texting friends, asking if they would go with her when she returns at Christmas. None of them had heard of it. Here’s hoping their experience is amazing and we win a few “converts.”

Other ways I’ve been sharing tiki include taking my friends and family to Denver tiki bars (so much so that my sister and fiancé have suggested Adrift as a wedding reception location), making tiki drinks for as many people as possible, and showing my tiki finds to everyone I can.

Well, we did have our very first tiki party this year. We invited about a dozen close friends and served up a few recipes from the SC book. One of my friends now buys me Exotica records and the occasional Coco Joe figurine she spots at thrift shops, whereas before the party she got us plastic party tiki stuff from the dollar store. So, I'd say we are making progress!

I was fortunate to get to know a couple local bartenders who were interested in tiki. Then I was able to help them learn enough to get hooked on the drinks and on tiki culture. My home bar was a testing ground to further expose them to a number of the classic drinks. They've taken off on their own now, one even scours thrift shops between Amelia Island and Daytona Beach looking for tiki treasures for his home.

I post info on this website called Tikicentral most times about the Kahiki restaurant in Columbus Ohio.

Then other people use that info for news papers and all kinds of things, before I posted about the Grass skirt burning down on Bill Sapp's birthday you never heard that anywhere,
now it's common knowledge.

But it's a good thing that almost nobody reads what I post so nobody knows where the news paper people and others get their info.

Dam a posting about a new Trader Sam's mug gets more replies than my whole Kahiki thread has.

That and the smoking tiki fountain.

TIKI JEEP! ?

I could never hope to get the kind of responses that the Tiki Jeep thread does.

Wonder what percent of the TC viewing audience even care about the old places and what I call tiki.

It's getting weird I tell ya.
