I used to use Critiki as my go to when looking for tiki bars while travelling. It seems that Critiki isn't being maintained any more though unfortunately. (I've tried for at least 6 months to add in 5 new bars covering 3 different cities, and haven't received a response. And I can't be the only one trying to add in these bars either.)

How do you all find new tiki bars to hit these days? Random chance? Word of mouth? Internet sleuthing?

True, Humu hasnít added any locations in over a year (and hasnít posted to Critiki News since last November); still, I donít think itís too obsolete yet. Most things listed there as in existence are so, or their current status can be confirmed by an Internet search, so Critiki remains my source for new-to-me tiki places.

When it comes to new-in-general places, ones that have opened their doors for the first time within the past 18 months, thatís a different story. Some of us have been posting here about new places, so I also do a TC search (or ask here) before traveling. And it was just internet dumb luck that I found out about Hidden Idol in Denver a year ago (which I then added to the Locating Tiki forum for the benefit of others).

Has the Y review site made critiki obsolete?

If you mean Yelp, then no, I donít think so. Critiki has a specific (niche?) audience. The reviews there are by people who get ďtiki,Ē so I trust them more than some bozo on Yelp. Plus, Itís still a nice record of places that no longer exist.

The same people that use any review site use both the y that shall not be named and critiki.

The Y review site made itself obsolete so long ago that I have absolutely no idea why ANYONE would refer to it for anything aside from hours and address.
