I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but this should be an object-lesson to us all about just how bad it can get when we relax our standards.

1. If you need a sign (or a wreath!) to let people know that they're in a “tiki bar”, then it's probably not quite there yet.

2. Guys, don't let the gals design/decorate your “man cave” with stuff they make or buy at Hobby Lobby (and yes, Hobby Lobby has a man cave section).

be careful, WD....people are going to say you are being negative! Remember, we at tiki central are now supposed to accept EVERYTHING as being tiki! There can be no purists here any more, and you cannot crap on someone's good time!

I tend to agree that a tiki bar shouldn't need a sign that reads "Tiki Bar".

And, yeah that particular wreath is just wrong.

Have you spotted a tiki wreath that was otherwise?

I found the wreath on my local Craigslist site, and it's also on Etsy. Only $89.

I'm ashamed of my state right now: this weekend we were out antiquing and ran across a pair of concrete moai heads, somewhat similar to this one...



I asked about the price on "the concrete head", and the dealer asked me if I meant "that Stonehenge-looking one?" Turns out it was the one she had in mind, and after checking the price, she corrected her description. "That's the one we call The Conquistador."

Some of my best deals have come from people that don't know what they're selling.

It's funny that she equated Stonehenge and Moai. In Hunt, TX there used to be a replica Stonehenge next to 2 replica Moai heads.

This wasn't one of those: $100 for $5 worth of concrete.
