Hi everyone, this is actually my first post here, although I have been "lurking" on the boards for some time. My husband actually got me interested in the world of tiki awhile back and I have been hooked ever since. Together, we have visited the holy shrine of the Mai Kai, the Bahai Hut in Sarasota and of course, Trader Vics' Atlanta where I live. I know at least one of the people here on the boards in the Atlanta area and am an avid collector of all things Tiki, which I am incorporating into my and my husband's own personal backyard version of the Mai Kai Gardens (complete with real palm trees). I'm a dedicated student of the mastery, magic, history and mystery of rum cocktails and spend my spare time either scouring the Atlanta area for tiki finds or working in the garden. Glad to meet everyone here and Maholo to you all.

Aloha Janet! I love gardening and we've tried very hard to make our backyard look like Florida. It's a BIT more challenging up here in Ohio!!

Wow! Thanks everyone for the great welcome! I hope to get the chance to get to know you all here on the board and maybe even get to meet you in person someday over Mai Tais at Trader Vic's Atlanta.

Hi Sweetbeak, I just started a discussion thread re: tiki gardens in my backyard and some have been posting photos. Would love to see any photos you have of your garden.

The Mai Tai is always my "go to" drink at Trader Vics, but if you're not driving and have some time to spend, the Fogcutter is great.
