I think tiki and sports can mix... As long as the sports are surfing, fire-eating, and semi-competitive zombie-imbibing.
Also - new here, too. But not new to tiki.

I think the killer is that sports is a loud cheering environment, while
tiki is (or should be) a more cool lounge type thing. (That buzzer kills the vibe)
A place where you and your associates plan to whack rival family's
to gain control of the west side. (Movie Casino reference)
Tiki bar = mixed drinks / Sports Bar = Beer and a shot.
Tiki bar food = exotic dishes from the far east / Sports bar food = Wings from Buffalo.
Sports types are more likely to associate Party City with tiki than say Witco, Not you, just sayin.
But hey if you can put the two together and love it go for it.
Me, I'm more smoky quite tiki lounge type.
In my general experience, the sports bars I've been to have been to only get noisy when it comes to bigger games. It's pretty quiet if its during the week (or at least general noise level).

Tiki Bars and sports don't usually mix well. On the other hand, the Tiki references on the Luau Cindor Pinterest page are indeed worthy ones.
Thanks, I've been trying to mix things up so as not to make the page more eclectic.
I'm posted pins for Tiki decor, and more authentic art from the Pacific/Asia/Africa/etc. Then adding a lot of retro pins. I added some music surfing, swimsuits, and things that if don't quite cross over into Tiki, rub up against it.
As for the b'ball, I'm trying to keep things retro. I'm trying to avoid pinning stuff from current players as much as possible (though one or two got through).
Hope y'all like it.
