Tiki Maniacs announced that they are doing a 70's throwback mug with "Groovy Greg" from The Brady Bunch endorsed by Barry Williams! :LOL: No word on purchase dates yet but I suspect this will be a hot seller for them. The mug is inspired from the "Hawaii Bound" S4:E1 episode of The Brady Bunch TV series where Bobby finds a hidden Hawaiian idol. Thinking it means good luck, Bobby gives the idol to Greg (Williams) for luck during a surfing competition that Greg is participating in. After a series of mishaps and advice from an older Hawaiian the Brady gang knows that it is actually bad luck to have removed the idol and must return it to the cave where Bobby found it. Making a surprise appearance, Vince Price plays a mentally disturbed archeologist who traps the Brady kids in the cave. The infamous tiki idol from the episode is in the possession of Williams who, according to his 2000 book "Growing Up Brady", found it while going through old props from the show. Aloha! Well, if you watched the Instagram Live show last night you witnessed first hand the cursed tabu tiki idol playing one more trick on us as we experienced technical issues right as Barry Williams came on to reveal our new mug! Fortunately everything turned out a-ok and we are thrilled to share pictures of our new mug — Groovy Greg! This is our tribute to the great actor who so many of us wished was our big brother and got to experience the wonder of tiki for the first time growing up in the 70s. Make sure to like and follow us and stay tuned for more details in the coming days…
Growing up in a part of the burbs' outside of Philly there really weren't any "Tiki" restaurants in the area and, in my youth, was too young to venture into Philly. The closest in the area was a restaurant named named Aloha Inn that was in a strip mall in Blue Bell, PA. At the time it stood out because it was a Chinese restaurant with a heavy amount of Hawaiian influence, including the meals and decor. These days it would be called a "fusion" menu restaurant. It was one of my absolute favorite places to visit and it was always something I looked forward to when our Mom took us there. Over time I married and moved away from the area, to an area with even less diverse dining choices :(, and Aloha Inn closed their doors at some point. I don't get down to that area very often these days but when I do, and happen to drive by, I can't help but think of that restaurant and wish they were still open. Does anybody know what happened to it? Or, heck, is anybody even familiar with it?! :D Doing a Google search I can't find any pictures of it or even mention of it other than an obituary for the owner, Lewis Chant.

Lately I have been playing with ChatGPT and was wondering if it can create new drinks. Here is what it created when I asked to create a new "tiki" drink. Who is brave enough to try it? 😆 Coconut Mango Tiki Cocktail (created by ChatGPT) This cocktail is a fruity and refreshing twist on a classic tiki drink, perfect for enjoying on a warm day or at a tropical-themed party. Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz dark rum 1 oz coconut cream 1 oz fresh mango juice 1/2 oz lime juice 1/2 oz orange curaçao 1/2 oz simple syrup Angostura bitters Crushed ice Pineapple wedge and mint sprig for garnish Instructions: In a cocktail shaker, combine the rum, coconut cream, mango juice, lime juice, orange curaçao, and simple syrup. Add a few dashes of Angostura bitters. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. Fill a tiki glass with crushed ice. Strain the cocktail into the glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and a mint sprig.
Hi everyone! I just wanted to announce my new book called the "United World of Tiki Passport". The book is slightly larger than your standard passport and contains every legitimate Tiki bar around the world listed by continent and then by country (and then again, alphabetically by city). Each page is a different country or state with the right side set up as a grid and each Tiki bar listed, one bar per square on the grid. When you arrive at one of the bars, you can then scratch off the name (similar to a lottery scratcher), revealing the logo of the bar underneath. The left side is the map of the country and little pineapple icons denoting the location of the Tiki bars within the country. But this isn't only a scratch-your-way-around-the-world. Included is a brief history of the origins of Tiki starting from Donn Beach's sea adventures in 1929, all the way to Tiki's evolution (and revolution) in the mid-2000s. Further still, each "chapter" starts with historical and geographical facts about the continent coming up in the book. Please feel free to see some photos and reels on my Instagram for details (@zickazack) as well as the Kickstarter where you can actually back the project and receive a passport of your very own!! (Click here for Kickstarter link) If you have any questions, please either post them here or you can DM me on my Instagram (see handle above). It would mean the world to me if I can actually get this project printed and sent out to everyone who has a love for Tiki and world travel. Thanks very much for taking the time to read and I hope one day our paths will cross in some Tiki bar far away, and we can scratch it off our passport together!
I a trying to find out how many issues were published of Tiki Magazine and also how many were published of its successor Tiki Magazine and More. Does anyone have a list? Many thanks. My first post here.
The Mai-Kai was created by Bob and Jack Thornton. The brothers visited Don the Beachcomber’s in Chicago, as children, and even at that young age said they wanted to open a similar place. Their original design cost 300 thousand dollars; it was the most expensive restaurant built in 1956. In its first year it earned over one million dollars, becoming one of the most successful restaurants of its time and for many years it sold more rum than any location in the United States. The Mai-Kai...
Originally established in 1950 as The Mandarin House, able to accomodate 40-50 customers, the Kowloon Restaurant has grown to a capacity of 1200 seats and has become one of the premier multi-concept dining establishments in the United States.
