Highlight for Album: Lotus Garden, Greenwood, Indiana
Lotus Garden, Greenwood, Indiana
What some have called 'the last Tiki bar in Indiana'. The unfortunately main dining room wasn't open the day we were there. It seems more of a neighborhood buffet these days- but you can still get a drink in a Tiki mug. 49 Mercator Dr., Greenwood, Indiana Here's a fabulous picture of the room we missed- http://www.worldpages-ads.com/01446273?viewAdImage=01446273&returnUrl=http://www.worldpages-ads.com/01446273&listingName=Lotus%20Garden

Highlight for Album: Hale Tiki, Augusta, GA,   R.I.P.
Hale Tiki, Augusta, GA, R.I.P.
Re-edited Feb 2006- Sadly I must now change this description, whereas I once said- "Go to Augusta, GA! You'll be glad you did!", I can now only say, go to Augusta, GA, and raise a glass to the remains of the once mighty Hale Tiki! Hale Tiki was one of the finest examples of a 'modern' Tiki establishment, the build out was done by TikiCentral Ohana, and Brad the Beachcomber once served allowed us to partake of the "concubines" here- the 'concubine' being the house drink, that is! Alas, The Hale Tiki closed its doors Feb 24th 2006. From the original description- "The Hale Tiki is beyond words. We visited after it had been open roughly 9 months to find Tiki perfection in GA, believe it or not! Our fine hosts, the music, the mixology, the space, and all the hard work that's gone into it- it was all we could do to stare in blissful wonderment! A small cadre of Tiki Centralites spent an insane few days building this modern Temple- and in every way imaginable- they got it right! The Hale Tiki is a perfect 10; a standard against which other modern Tiki Temples can be judged."

Universal Orlando's Royal Pacific Resort
Although not Tiki, the entire resort will be of intrest to Tikiphiles due to its pretext of golden age of travel (think Pan Am and Matson Lines) to exotic lands. I hope to write a review and scan a few pictures eventually.

Hawaii Kai, New York - Which held the original 'Lounge of the Seven Pleasures' (R.I.P.)
This is a tribute page the the Hawaii Kai which held the original Lounge of the Seven Pleasures as but one of several rooms within the complex. To understand our bar- and love for all things Tiki, one must first study the Hawaii Kai- alongside other such Temples now gone.

Highlight for Album: *GALLERIES* Coast to Coast Int'l Tiki Trek- Calgary
*GALLERIES* Coast to Coast Int'l Tiki Trek- Calgary
While there's another surprise in here, the absolute highlight of our trip through Calgary was an all too short evening spent with Slacks Ferret, a real Artist, with a deep love for all things Tiki. Best of all though, he's a keeper of Tiki secrets! I can't wait to see how his home space comes along- he has ideas percolating, and is slowly amassing all the components for one heck of a home bar. Stay tuned to his 'creating' thread over on TikiCentral to see what he's up to- http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=7716&forum=7&hilite=slacks%20ferret

Shanghai Village Duck Carving Extravaganza 4/10/09
A few pictures documenting Chef Kwok's Duck Carving tableside ritual and a few of the drinks at the Shanghai Village in Bethesda, MD. SV is legendary in its own right, and one of the few remaining Maryland outposts of genuine Tiki exotic cocktail mixology.
