Well, I figure I have been holding back for a while now... in sharing a picture or two of my home bar and its story.

First I will say that I have been into Tiki stuff since I was about 10 when I first went to Hawaii... our trip to the Polynesian center on the island had a huge impact since I have since then been fascinated with Tiki culture, carvings, etc... however my collection was limited to about 6 or so wooden carved Tikis and my a couple photos of hula dancers.

Bringing us to the present day... I recently aquired a new Brother-in-law, who just happens to be TikiHula! So knowing him for the past couple years has been a lot of fun and gotten me even more interested in the Tiki life.

So since November or so of last year I have been working on my own home bar... aptly named The Forbidden Door! Why you ask? Well the bar I got off of craigslist seems to have been made out of a door. I will take more pics and add them as time goes by to this thread, but take my word for it, the front of my bar seems to be a carved door... strange but true.

So over this year I have collected a few mugs, some random Tiki art, been trying to make my own hanging lamps, and even got a piece of Witco. I hope you enjoy my crappy pics... either way, blame TikiHula!

Blowfish has become on only an excellent tiki bar decorator, but an accomplished bartender. He recently invented a drink called the Kauaiian High that is nothing short of nui nui goodness! Here's to more tiki drinks and tiki bar decor!

Hey Blowfish! Welcome, again! The bar looks to be shaping very nicely. I look forward to having a Kauaiian High while viewing the door/bar. Very interesting. Party at your house!
