That paddle by Tikimecula is outstanding. Wow.

Also, I like that you started out with bad tiki, because it's all you knew, then grew by leaps and bounds, without abandoning the bad tiki that was your roots. Those are the nicest damn Party City tikis I've ever seen. Hahaha.

Grog, I like it and your posts always make me laugh.
You've got a great variety of art from so many different people and it really adds to the eye candy of the room.

I don't see your "Klub" rack.
I'm sure they're proudly displayed.
I know they're surly used.
I've healed well.



The Klubs are upstairs in the studio, and GROG keep one under the bed. Still haven't cleaned the blood off the one GROG use on you.

Yep. That paddle is the most awesomest EVER!! Bought it when GROG had been unemployed for awhile and didn't have that much money to spend, but T-mec offered GROG such a great price GROG couldn't pass it up. GROG feel like GROG need send T-mec some more money, but the bastard hasn't been posting on TC.

GROG started with Party City Tikis because everything was originally only supposed to be up for a weekend and GROG was trying to do it cheap as possible. GROG was also making fun of the "kitschiness" of Tiki.
Once GROG got serious about Tiki and got to know a bunch of the incredible Tiki artists, GROG started buying the good stuff. One day when GROG make a real Tiki room and bar, it will look much different, but still have much of the same great art.
The party Tikis aren't actually bad designs. You just have to paint 'em black and drybrush on them to make them look like they were carved out of wood.

Thanks WestADad and SandraDee. I do have some great pieces, except for one from Bowana that GROG SHOULD have won at Tiki Oasis silent auction. Damn you SandraDee!!

Glad GROG could make you laugh Lori. There are some awesome Tiki artists and GROG try to help support the Tiki community. Plus, the pieces look great in GROG Tahonga Room.

Lori happy that GROG share his tiki room!

LOVE IT! You have some amazing pieces, I am most jealous.

I feel like I know you a little better now that I have seen your home tiki space and heard your story. Thanks for sharing.

GROG feel so violated.

That's what happen. GROG open up and share a little piece of GROGself with the world and they take advantage of that vulnerability.
Now GROG have to get yet another restraining order.

Yeah, if only you had Bowana's greatest creation of all time as part of your collection......don't worry my friend, I've added into my will that its yours when I die (well if no one else wants it first). Xoxo

Thanks ya'll.

SandraDee thanks for putting GROG in your will to get the Boawana mug. How are the brakes on your car?

Hanging10", not all the drinks in the Groglog are good. The Beachcomber's Gold sucks and GROG not a coffee drinker, so GROG not a fan of the coffee drinks or drinks with strong Kalua taste. Not a fan of black licorice either, so don't like the drinks with strong Pernod.
