There you Are! I knew there had to be other Tiki people in Minneapolis as some of my thrift store finds I had to wait to buy after pay day always disappeared before I could get back to them. I always thought it would be fun to have a "meet up" at some point...and then 4 months ago I moved to Washington. I'm missing Suzi's a whole lot about now.
Your set up looks great! Hope to see more.

In a lot of the tiki art, especially furniture and decorations, you can see the type of bamboo they are using looks old, and seems burnished...that's the look to aim for, even in doing the walls and frames. Those last pictures really show how it should look....

Your structure looks nice and solid, now all you need is a boatload of decorations to "tikifly" it! Have fun. It takes time, especially in non-tiki areas, unless you hit the lottery and can buy anything you want and hire Bamboo Ben.
And I'm with you, sadly staring out the window staring at my winterized pool and tiki paradise waiting for Spring and Summer!

Thanks to the Internet, you can easily be a tiki fanatic anywhere now! Just get used to shipping charges.
If you dig the Buffett type bar, I say keep it! Just maybe add a few tikis?
