Ah, now this a thread I can get into.

An "adventure bar"!! That's a great idea. I have to persuade my gf to take drive out there one of these weekends.

I know it's off-tiki, but I also have a penchant for Indiana Jones movies, and bossa nova music.

In other words, if it's tropical and adventurous, I'm in!!

(I've also spent some time volunteering in Kenya; a different kind of adventure. Though I did go on safari, too.)

Scallywag Ceramics makes a kifwebe tiki mug you might like.

Hi Lori: Haha, yes I've seen that mug. I wish it appealed to me a bit better, because it's definitely my "dream mug," haha!

Thank you for thinking of me!

No doubt this Torrance dive bar has undergone significant Jungle devolution since its heyday but what better way to encounter the type of wildlife that starts drinking before noon.

Their signature drink, the "Vulcan Mind Probe", contains both 151 and pineapple juice to satisfy undiscerning Tiki palates.

I know this is not Tiki, so please don't burn me at the stake...but I love this thread. I am very drawn to your decor Paul...such a good mix and feel. The one thing that seems to represent "exotic" on so may levels is leopard print. It crosses over into many genres. Is that wrong...like fezes on monkeys (I love that too). There it's all over now I "get" Tiki but I am also passionate about leopard prints and monkeys in fezes.

Fabulous pictures in this thread...keep them coming. Those jungle comic book covers are fun!!!

On the Jungle-thread you don't get burned at the stake but you do get boiled alive in a pot.

Oh yeah here's a safari-themed bar in Lakewood CA that I checked out in 2014, the Zanzabuku...



Open in 1959, they say they used to have a tree growing from the middle of the bar to (through) the roof. Also the place was decorated with a gallery of wildlife paintings, a few of which still remain...

This thread is so politically incorrect, cultural appropriation, white privileged... And I love it. In this day an age with outrage culture and social justice warriors, this could never happen. Why? regressive people get offended so easy! Intolerant tolerance... oh well... I better shut up now. Got self censorship?

John-O where are you?

Either way you know the drinks are gonna be GREAT.

Opening soon...



And I don't know about you but I miss that White Devil.



Here's my Facebook album of the Longitude build for those who missed it.

It's a fun bar. Go check it out!
