The Mai-Kai welcomes King Kai

A new 10-foot-tall Tiki, carved by South Florida's Will Anders, was dedicated during a special ceremony on Sunday, May 22. Photos by The Atomic Grog.

King Kai now stands in The Mai-Kai's tropical garden in a spot formerly occupied by a historic Tiki that will be moved to the indoor gardens.

The Mai-Kai's new trio of Tikis

Florida artists Will Anders, Tom Fowner and Jeff Chouinard have carved three new Tikis for The Mai-Kai's porte-cochère to greet guests upon their arrival at the historic restaurant. Thanks to The Hukilau's Christie "Tiki Kiliki" White for spearheading the project. They were installed on May 28-29, 2016.




The new Tiki carved by Fort Lauderdale's Will Anders is based on the Hawaiian Lono style.


The Tangaroa-style Tiki carved by Fort Lauderdale's Tom Fowner is inspired by the design of The Mai-Kai's vintage decanter.


The Marquesan-style Tiki carved by Tampa's Jeff Chouinard was installed today, completing the trio.

Lots of catching up to do, lots of news from April ...

Week in Tiki (April 16-30, 2016): New Beachbum Berry glassware, ‘Sippin’ Safari’ 10-year anniversary edition; plus event and Tiki bar news, more!

http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2016/06/06/week-in-tiki-april-16-30-2016-new-beachbum-berry-glassware-sippin-safari-10-year-anniversary-edition-plus-event-and-tiki-bar-news-more/



Beachbum Berry’s Sippin’ Safari, the underrated classic 2007 cocktail book that helped set the stage for today’s robust revival of Tiki bars across the country, will be re-released in the fall as a 10-year anniversary special edition, the author confirmed. Former screenwriter Jeff “Beachbum” Berry’s fourth book was his first full-color, story-driven guide to the history of tropical mixology.



Meanwhile, some cool new glassware was added to the Beachbum Berry barware collection on the Cocktail Kingdom website: A coconut mug featuring the Beachbum Berry logo, and Beachbum Berry Zombie Glasses.


Sailor Cook, the official 2016 Tiki Kon mug by VanTiki, is inspired by the Tikis of the Cook Islands and honors the brave GIs who served in the Pacific Theater during World War II.

Upcoming event news includes Tiki by the Sea, Ohana: Luau At The Lake, Tiki Kon, Southern Surf Stomp, and the Surf Guitar 101 Convention.

We also have Tiki bar news from Chicago’s Lost Lake, San Francisco’s Smuggler’s Cove, plus a new “urban Tiki” concept in Brooklyn.

All of the above have a connection to The Hukilau this week, along with ...



The website of the week is home of the upcoming book Mai-Kai: History & Mystery of the Iconic Tiki Restaurant.



Our rum of the week, Ron Diplomático Reserva, is featured in La Guildive by Martin Cate, a cocktail from his new book Smuggler’s Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum and the Cult of Tiki. Also check out our initial review ...



Smuggler’s Cove book sets a new standard for Tiki in the 21st century

Comprehensive, colorful, and full of so much information it may make your head spin (especially when sampling the many potent cocktail recipes), Smuggler’s Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum and the Cult of Tiki is essential reading for anyone with a passionate interest in the Tiki revival and its spectacular cocktails.

Written by Martin Cate, with assistance from wife Rebecca Cate, Smuggler’s Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum and the Cult of Tiki is the story of how this Tiki power couple rose to prominence and ended up opening one of the world most acclaimed rum bars in San Francisco. But it’s so much more than just the story of a bar. At 352 pages and hard-bound like a college textbook, it could be considered the new bible for home enthusiasts and bartenders alike. But I’ll bet you’ve never read a textbook this fun.

Like the first major college football bowl game (but a lot more colorful), Tiki Caliente kicked off the annual Tiki event season in style with its eighth gathering of the tribe in the tropical mid-century splendor of Palm Springs on May 12-15. Expanded to four days at the historic Caliente Tropics resort, the intimate, sold-out event also featured a pre-party at Tonga Hut as well as more symposiums, an eclectic lineup of performers, art shows, vendors and the usual festive room parties.

Full story:

EVENT PREVIEW: Step back into the WWII era at Tiki Kon in Portland

The northwest Tiki scene is gearing up for the 14th annual Tiki Kon, happening July 8-10 in Portland. Themed to Polynesian Pop’s roots in the post-World War II era and the USO, the eclectic event is centered at a new host hotel, the Red Lion Hotel On The River. Guests can enjoy Tiki-themed music, art and fashion, with a rollicking camp show, surf and lounge bands, educational symposiums, themed food and drinks, vendors from around the world, and the longest-running home bar tour of its kind.

EVENT PREVIEW: It’s all about the cocktails at massive industry event in New Orleans

Everything is bigger and better in New Orleans, especially when alcohol and cocktails are involved. For the 14th year, the liquor industry’s biggest names will join 20,000 of their closest friends and fans in the Big Easy on July 19-24 for Tales of the Cocktail. Featuring a dizzying number of events spread across ballrooms and bars throughout the city, TOTC (or simply “Tales”) serves up not just the world’s best cocktail party, but also endless opportunities to learn about the latest trends in the bar business at seminars, tastings, product launches, competitions, networking events and more.

Swanky's book release party at The Mai-Kai was a big success ...



Friday featured the Demerara Float lost cocktail, plus Swanky's exclusive walking tour.



Tiki Diablo showed off his special tribute bowl in The Molokai lounge ...


... and The Atomic Grog mixed up the Big Bamboo at a special room party:



On Saturday, the line for books was long:


And the presentation was well-received ...


While more lost cocktails were consumed ...


And Mai-Kai legends returned to perform.


The dinner show was the perfect finale ...
