Well, I figured I should post these before visiting the Mai Kai tonight. I may be ashamed tomorrow.

This is a work still in progress, there have been a few more plants added to the walkway. The goal was to block off all view of anything but greenery as you approach the screened door into the Lagoon.

This is a Florida Palm Tiki we rescued from underneath a buddy's house. He's happy here. We've got a low voltage spot highlighting him.

To your right as you walk in is the set up for tonight's rum tasting. Cruzan Single Barrel won this one. Everyone drinks from the same wooden cup.

The bar is 4 cypress slabs screwed and glued to a piece of 3/4" pt plywood with jigsawed edges that match the slabs' meandering sides.
We then fastened the entire piece to the 4x4 post foundation. Very sturdy. We are going to cover the 4x4s with large diameter bamboo similar to the foot-rails at Traderpup's Spectacular East Indies Room. Unless one of you has a better idea of how to cover the 4x4s. We'll take any ideas for improving the scene here.

The liquor cabinet fit into a bathroom window fitting. Backlighting...oooooh.
Cheesy until it's filled with stuff. Which it now is.

The only way to deal with the heat and stay outside. It stays cool all year round from the trees and screen.

another view...

From behind the bar looking up towards "High Tiki" (The Amber Love Goddess's domain to decorate elegantly in French Polynesian - and nearly complete as well)
The mask on the left is from Bali.

The Point: Pretend like you're somewhere else and the cares of day wash away with the Hawai'ian music playing softly in the background. Good conversation - lot's of laughs - terrific drinks with fresh juices and top shelf liquors, usually made from the recipes in 50 year old drink manuals. Now if I can just get the squirrels to stop munching my ginger shoots and hibiscus leaves.
