A Happy find on I-Drive. Don't let its neon restaurant-along-the-strip exterior fool you- inside is a lamp collection to go gaa gaa over!

`Aina ahiahi at Fins and the FOM Baltimore Meet and Greet - March 21, 2009
A portion of the local tribe gathered for an `Aina ahiahi (or "Evening meal") at Fins. Afterwards some of us traveled up to Baltimore for a Fraternal Order of Moai (http://www.fraternalorderofmoai.org) Meet and Greet hosted at Turbogod's Tacky Techie Tiki Bar" where we were happily joined by still more folks.

Trader Vic's, San Francisco, 4/2/06
While out in SF, we had the opportunity to spend a special evening with an old friend at the new Trader Vic's in downtown San Francisco. There's plenty of Tiki in this recently opened treasure. Plenty of Rums showcased, too! I've left the overlapping pictures of the rums in this set in case viewers want to try to identify individual bottles- eventually, we'll rework some of the overlapping pix into "stitched" mosaics, (where many pictures are joined into a single image).

*GALLERIES* Coast to Coast Int'l Tiki Trek- The first ever, 'Holy Crap! It's a Tiki Event in Vancouver 2005'
July 30th, 2005- The first ever Tiki 'event' in Vancouver (other than art shows, bands etc). Roughly 30 of us made an evening of it and got a chance to explore the inner depths of the hidden temples of the Waldorf Hotel- a rare opportunity!

Highlight for Album: TikiSkip's "The Ohana be Gonna Lounge", June 2006
TikiSkip's "The Ohana be Gonna Lounge", June 2006
Tikiskip's collection is one of the most dense/all encompassing collections we've ever 'toured'. There are vastly tikifield rooms throughout the house, and then shelves of the tiniest details; filled with small bottles, matchbooks, and other treasures. Many Kahiki bits and pieces have found thier way to make a permanent home here. When we were there, we got to photograph the Kahiki table and 'tablesetting' , but since our visit, they have since added one of the two Kahiki Moai from the Kahiki's front entrance.. It's good to see these pieces in a living and loved Tiki environment. Like so many of the other central Ohio Ohana, (my 'hometown'!), they are doing Tiki damn proud!

Tropical Bistro, June '06 R.I.P. spring/summer 2008
With deep sadness, I add the Tropical Bistro to the ongoing R.I.P. listings here on sevenpleasures. Aloha! Original album description follows- As part of our trip out to Ohio in June, we met up with Central Ohio Tiki Ohana and Fraternal Order of the Moai friends. This was my first trip to the Tropical Bistro, and my first smoking erruption since the close of the Kahiki. What began as a few friends getting together for dinner and a drink grew into an event mentioned in the local alterna-paper and a room full of Tikiphiles! Mahalo for making my first trip to the Tropical Bistro so special!

Highlight for Album: The Tiki Tiki, Richmond, VA 2-18-06
The Tiki Tiki, Richmond, VA 2-18-06
OakTiki and I made a brief stop over in Richmond to explore what some have called the city's "best Chinese" (not knowing Richmond's typical level of Chinese I have no baseline for comparison). The Tiki Tiki is also apparently well known for both their food and their good and strong Dr. Funk of Tahitis. We certainly found the Tiki Tiki a wonderful experience! Although there was only one actual Tiki readily visible, other than on the mugs, there was certainly Aloha present; from fine mixology served in proper glassware and even bowls, to the small but busy bar near the back of the restaurant happily full of what appeared to be regulars. Mighty fine hospitality! And very welcoming of those who aren't regulars yet :), definitely the place to return to next time we're in that neck of the woods! You can find an illustrated version of their menu- with drink menu- here- http://www.billofare.com/1335u01.htm
