Another day, another brand-new Critiki Image Gallery:

Lighting



That unique tiki bar mood can only be achieved with a lot of dim, exotic light fixtures—windows, televisions and neon are traitors against the cause!

Wow! Just Wow!
I love the new lighting page!
Pictures like that just start me thinking.
Thank you.

I have a ton of pictures I could add to that.
But do you want only old restaurant lights.
Got a lot of those.
Or do you also want homemade lights as well.
Got a lot of those too.

I'm tickled you're inspired by the Lighting gallery, tikiskip. It is a good one, eh? I would LOVE for your lighting pictures to be in Critiki. Since Critiki is location-centric, all pictures are attached to a location and can be uploaded using an "Add it to Critiki" link found on each location's page. If you would be interested in having your home bar (and thus, your homemade lighting) listed in Critiki, I would love that: just shoot me an email at humuhumu@critiki.com with the name of your home bar, the city it's in, and a few little details for the write-up. The exact address will not be listed, no worries of Critiki sending strange people to your doorstep.

Today's new Image Gallery is a whopper, with 166 images:

Matchbooks



Flames aren't just for volcano bowls and fire dancers: matchbooks and matchboxes were once everywhere.

Thanks Humuhumu,
I will send info soon.
Will need to sign up for your site as well.

Any thing that would be new restaurant/bar people
can reference for their new places is a plus.
And the home tiki bar peeps as well.

Good luck.
Great site!!

Michelle, you're the best! Two of my pet Poly pop categories, first A-frames, and now Beachcomber lamps! Wonderful eye candy, thank you!

I thought you'd dig that A-frame gallery, Sven.

Today's new Image Gallery is even bigger, with more than 200 images:

Menus



"Polynesian cuisine"—in truth, typically just Chinese food or ribs—was sold by elaborate menu presentations. Come for the covers, stay for the descriptions and prices!

KOOL! I spotted a couple pics of my fish lamps at The Beachcomber & Taboo! Anyone know who made these lamps & how old they are?

Big Kahuna - I don't know exactly which lamps you're referring to, can you link to a picture?

And now for today's new Image Gallery:

Mugs



The tops in Polynesian Pop collecting. Okay, so this image gallery is nothing compared to the mug-centric eye candy that is Ooga-Mooga, but it's nice to see the mugs in context, connected to the information about their restaurants of origin.

You must have just come back from the fabric store SeamstressSeamstress 'cause you have been stiching up quite a mosiac and quilting up a storm. Very nice stuff. Thanks.

Haha, thanks The Gnomon!

I have a boatload of new additions to make to Critiki, hopefully tonight -- my trip to the Dallas Trader Vic's has me a little backlogged. You HAVE to go to the Dallas Trader Vic's. It is amazing, and you are missing out. Go.

Today's new Image Gallery:

Napkins



Something as disposable as a small paper napkin wasn't meant to last decades, but a few have remarkably made it.

Okay, so this gallery is a little on the... shrimpy side. I only have 9 images (and two are repeats, because Kelbo's had two locations). Oh well, not all the image galleries can be winners.

Mahalo nui loa for all the recent additions and updates to Critiki! A list of recent updates (including tikiskip's home tiki bar) is always available on the Latest Updates page (also available as an RSS feed): Latest Updates to Critiki

Today's new image gallery:

Polynesian Dance



Traditional dances lend some realism to an otherwise faux paradise. Lots of fire, lots of hips... hey now, keep your eyes on the hands!

Humuhumu Critiki is great!
It's the nets answer to Book of Tiki.
I'm going to send lots of Kahiki/light/other photos
your way.
Use what you can of them.
Will add comments later.
Is there a page for tiki statues?
I still have not gone through the whole site.

Great Job!!!!

Tikiskip, I'm so happy you're getting into Critiki! I got your images, thank you so, so, SO much (seeing them made my day). I'll get them up on the site by the end of the day today.

I started creating an image gallery for tiki carvings, and it was just TOO BIG. So I'm going to break them down by style of carving, and possibly artist. That's going to take a while. But on the plus side, it gives me an excuse to dig into my Oceanic Art books.

Now for today's new Image Gallery (and this is a REALLY GOOD ONE):

Postcards



These Technicolor missives to home are the best source we have for learning what the insides and outsides of long-gone tiki hotspots looked like.
