My Dad gets this mag. He called me up & quizzed me on tiki history as he read it!!

Pretty neat article, mostly taken from Wayne Curtis' book "and a bottle of Rum".

Pick up the mag if you get a chance...

The actual magazine article has alot of nice little inset articles...top 10 tiki bars, the essential reading list, etc etc.

And the rum book sounds like something I may have to pick up in the near future.

Here's the begining of the article from A.H. (scanned unreadable). Focuses entirely on tiki.....

Where would one be able to pick up copies of this magazine? Jeff Berry gives the rum book author the thumbs up, he met him in New Orleans.

Not sure where to get it without a subscription bigbro. (as my dad said "only old farts like me get this magazine!")

You're quoted a few times and the BOT is referenced, as well as Beachbum Berry's books, Tiki RoadTrip, Tiki Quest, Tiki Central and Critiki!!!

The guy did his homework. Its a nice article...kind of like a readers digest of tiki history.

I'm going by Barnes & Noble on the way home tonight. I'll see if they have any copies of it there & let ya know.

Mag is for sale at Barnes & Nobel. Prob for sale at any book/magazine store with a big selection.

Worth hunting down if you've got a few minutes. I also bought the "and a bottle of rum" book by the same author.

Started reading it last night, and its very good. Highly reccomend it.

Very enjoyable quick read (link in first post in this thread)! And to top it off it ends with this wonderful piece of trivia:
**
For instance, we learn that a Mai Tai was the first thing Patty Hearst wanted after being sprung from her Symbionese Liberation Army rap.

Since American Heritage Magazine is "not" what I would call a mainstream mag so distribution to general populace will be limited. I had to ask for it @ Barnes & Noble was not easy to spot. Great article though & in the right publication would probably spark more interest in Tiki culture, but that just my 2 cents

Pretty good article, but nothing we don't already know from Book of Tiki and Tiki Road Trips.

What's the deal with that pic of the Tonga Room on the main page?

Looks HEAVILY photoshopped.
