Interesting article, but then, most anything about Tiki is interesting. I have to wonder though if some of these post modern, deconstructionist, pseudo liberal newspaper writers don't grossly over analyze. Consider from the first paragraph:

"Tiki drinks occupy a space somewhere in the Venn diagram of the American psyche where escapism, irony and kitsch overlap, cutting across so many cultural divides."*

It seems as though they always have to identify tiki, to compartmentalize it and somewhat isolate it. Face it. . ..when it comes to Tiki, you either "Get it" or you "Don't get it."

And, like our brethren who espouse that famous south of the border drink, (made with Tequila you know. . ) Take this article like that drink, with a grain of salt.
