Interesting...But can anything good come out of Bremerton?
Bremerton is mention in The Book, but on my quick pass through last weekend I saw nothing exotic. It's on my list for heavier investigation.

woofmutt, you got a point there. My missing in action father was born in Bremerton I hear...

Anybody remember that Sir Mix A Lot song Baby Got Back? Specifically the line "Ain't talkin' bout Bremelows".
This term is a rather mean one coined in the greater Bremerton area to describe the large population of plus size ladies who inhabit the area bars hoping to snag em' a sailor or marine. I believe the term is an amalgam of Bremerton and buffalo. I was sta'd there in my military days and though there was plenty of cool Amerindian totemic art I didn't notice any tiki zones. So there is your Bremerton hip hop trivia.

Well, Bremerton is proof of the Tiki-Navy connection, being a navy shipyard and having several Tiki apartment complexes like the Tangaroa and the Kona Kai.
I wonder if some of those guys mentioned are old timers that did those apartment Tikis, or kids that grew up around them..... and how the BOT figures in the revival....anybody going there?

Must be a universal thing. At Bath Iron Works in Bath, Main the "Bremelow" was the "Bathosaurus".
