    Books Tiki Magazine and Tiki Magazine and More.

    Welcome! I'm not familiar with "Tiki Magazine and More". I know that "Tiki Magazine" was a successor to "Tiki News" but didn't realize that there was another mag after Tiki Magazine ended in 2017. The only current mag that I'm aware of is Exotica Moderne published by House of Tabu. If I...

    Do you like the smell of natural bamboo? ๐Ÿผ

    Ooooh, that makes sense, and sounds good! :D Until I saw your response I was thinking along the lines of an Italian Rum Cake and was wondering how could somebody tiki-fy one of them.

    Do you like the smell of natural bamboo? ๐Ÿผ

    Random question... do you like the smell of natural bamboo? I picked up some natural bamboo drink stirrers from a restaurant supply company and after opening the bag I put it in a big Ziploc baggie to keep them dry and clean. Much to my chagrin I realized that it resulted in a strong smell...

    Tiki Do you consider "Pirates of the Caribbean" to be Tiki?

    I voted "No" for the reason you mentioned, that "Tiki" is typically Polynesian related. The "Tiki Drinks" crowd of course loves their Caribbean rum but, aside from that, I don't see the connection between PoC and "Tiki".
