Just wanted to introduce myself, I’m Brad from Austin. I’ve skirted around the tiki community for a number of years now but have always had an appreciation for all that is tiki. I’ve been very fortunate to meet some wonderful people in my travels around. I grew up in central Florida but moved all over the US growing up. I landed in Austin in 2003 and have met some amazing Tiki folks here and want to get even more involved in the Austin Tiki scene. I hope to meet more of you and enjoy some great drinks together!

—Brad aka “The Captain”

Aloha Brad from Austin!

All over the US? How did it play in Peoria?

More important: Mai Tai, or Zombie? Both?

I've been through Peoria. Lived in Chicago for a bit, wonderful city with some great Tiki bars!

I usually like to start with a Mai Tai or Pain Killer and work my way up to a Zombie. Zombie's are usually my "Hey, time to close the night out" kinda drink. I had a powerful one in San Fran last time I was out there at the Tonga Room. Fantastic joint, great drinks!

Aloha Brad! There are lots of us here in Austin. I hope you're in the loop of the upcoming Texas Tiki Week. And a member of Texas Tikiphiles on the Facebook.

I am both Mike! I believe we've met a couple of times, through mutual friends who are Moai.

Aloha, Brad! I know that Houston is a bit far, but if you happen to be in Houston the first weekend of December, I’ll be there for work and want to check Lei Low off my list. Be glad to meet! And any recommendations for other Houston Tiki are welcome! Mahalo.

Aloha Brad!
& Welcome on the heels of Texas Tiki Week.
I know my liver has just started to dry out!
I'm thinking we met during the week?

Pull up a barstool & stay a while :P

Coming out to Austin for business or fun? We have a lot of Tiki folks here but not a great Tiki bar yet, though I hear that is changing! Some other fun places to hang out though!

I didn't make it out to Tiki week sadly but we've met a few times over the years! Last time was the opening of Vulcania and before that CATT (which was a blast!)

You know, I rarely make it over to Houston but I may need to do that sometime here!
