TikiMaxton,
Aloha! I just registered yesterday. I don't know if I touched all the bases doing the start up thing but what are you going to do?
Thanks for the friendly gesture concerning your bar. Love to see it some time. If I do my chores,and mind my p's and q's, my wife says I can have a tiki party in August.
I will send you a note. That is if you can stomach partying with geezers in their 40's and 50's. I barely can.
I live in southeast Portland near Ladd's addition. One of you P-Town youth's should organize a Portland pub crawl. It would be pretty simple. Back and forth from the Alibi to the Jasmine Tree. Or perhaps you know of other tiki establishments in the metro area? Thanks again for the greeting.
I have noticed FrenchyPolynesia apparently
is a Portland Tiki Centralite. It's happening. Saw TikiFarm items at Home Ec. and Presents of Mind on Hawthorne St. The movement is here.

Okay....we need some pictures of this gem. I just searched here, and online and on FB and didn't find anything that was still active for viewing. Who's got 'em? Who's gonna show 'em?

Glad this ancient thread got dug out and dusted off! The whole "what happened to early TC home bars" has been on our mind lately and we've been hoping some people coud dig out some pics for some of the more intriguing-sounding ones.

LoungeShark, we've always been interested in this place, too. Actually this one, along with
Basement Kahuna's Kon Tiki Paradise Room, are among the top of the first-gen tiki revival home bars that we really want to see. Dave hasn't answered his PMs or emails and doesn't appear to be on FB so we have no way of contacting him. Just tried a pm to TikiMaxton. Any active TCers in the Portland area?

I hope so! Visiting Portland in July and looking for some local guidance to maximize the tiki experience!

I haven't been to all the events at Tiki Kon, but I've been to their Market Place several years in a row, and they always have some cool stuff!!
I'm sure you can see all the main Tiki haunts in Portland on Critiki, but Hale Pele and Alibi are pretty awesome!!

Alas, our trip is coming a little late for Tiki Kon. Had we known about it sooner, we could've adjusted our schedule, but now we're locked in. Hale Pele and Alibi are definitely on our lists. The closest we've ever come to visiting an actual tiki bar was Pilikia in Dallas, and if you read any of the reviews, you'll see how that barely counts.

Well, I'm from Portland but I've never met TikiMaxton or many of the Portland Tikiphiles aside from a small handful.

That said I would love to go on the Tiki Kon Sunday home bar tour! I've been to several of the Tiki Kons since 2010 but usually have only attended one event if that and the market place. Anyways I was looking at the Tiki Kon website today(home bar tour already sold out) and noticed they had pics of Castaway Cove from an old bar tour. I thought was funny cause I had just read this thread!

Here's the link...

I heard a sad rumor this past weekend that the Cove is changing themes soon.

And do try to do the Tiki Kon Home Bar tour one of these years. Just be aware that the tickets for this sell out in a matter of hours. They only run 3 buses of 50 people each bus. I am excited to say that after nearly a decade of collecting, and a few delays, my home will be on the tour this year.
