hey all, porco has been a tc'r from the get go! we wouldn't imagine building a proper tiki bar without the input and knowledge contained here.
in all sincerity, you guys have been an invaluable resource and inspiration to what we've created here. from the hukilau, all the bars we've visited coast to coast, information contained here and in bigbrotiki's and the bum's books, and gracious tc'rs we've met along the way...everything and everyone has played into being a part of what we are.
extra special thanks to TIKI DAVID for his help with all things cleveland kon tiki related. with his enormous generosity and assistance, we're able to showcase some amazing artifacts from not only tiki's, but cleveland's past. also thanks to the tc'rs that have supported us since day one...POCphil, Masher88, TikiKitty, mike and marie (gorgeous pics btw), ebtiki, Tiki Toli (our first regular, and first to drink through the menu), Hale Tiki, TikiHardBop, and anyone else here we may have missed. your patronage, help, and love of this thing we call tiki is what ultimately keeps us going.
locally, the response has been nothing short of amazing. yes, we're getting the business for being the "hot new place" on the block, but folks have been extremely receptive of the concept. we're looking to be an eventual institution in cleveland, and not just the flavor of the week. with our atmosphere and commitment to quality product, i think folks will find us to be a welcome refuge from the overpriced, sexy craft cocktail establishments that have popped up as of late. we're here to provide fun, quality drinks, and an atmosphere acknowledging and celebrating tiki & poly pop's past.
again, sincerest thanks to everyone here for giving us a source to draw from for not only history, but inspiration. we hope to have you by someday, and please let us know if you're a tc'r so i can thank you in person.
good stuff! The world needs more people like you!
