Ahoy, Maties!

I haven't posted here in awhile so I'm re-introducing myself and stating my intention once again to join your esteemed hui. I'm going to make an effort to contribute more to this community.

A little bit about me: I'm a Denver based illustrator/designer and avid tiki collector. A connoisseur, if you will. I also have a small collection of antique mid/mod Herman Miller furniture and a '61 VW Beetle I call the Haole Mobile. I discovered tiki culture circa 2005 while living on Maui when my wahine and I happened across the old Thor Store in Waikiki. I walked out considerably lighter in the wallet that day, but I was thoroughly hooked. Still have those mugs on a shelf right above me as I type this, but the girlfriend is long gone.

I dig pretty much every kind of tiki and polynesian pop, but my personal taste leans towards the lowbrow/Man or Astroman/Big Daddy Ed Roth flavor. This might be sacrilege 'round these parts, but I'm more of a beer guy than a cocktail imbiber. Though I wouldn't turn one down at a bar.

So aloha... again.

Aloha SqueakyTiki,

We are down in Austin, TX and run up to CO every spring break to ski. We always make a stop on the way home at Adrift and this March plan to hit Hidden Idol. Have you been? Got any feedback to share? Looking forward to checking out a new place.

Welcome back to the Port!

Hey hey AnTiki,

Yeah, the Hidden Idol is a cool little joint. Check out the events on their FB page. They have some pretty eclectic stuff there like Russian Sci-Fi movie night. Give a shout on the Denver Tiki Tribe FB page when you're in town and see who's up for a cocktail. They're good folk.

Thanks! Funds are a little tight this year so I'm limited to my local tiki group's events.

Have you tried Maui Brewing Co's Coconut Porter? It tastes like a chocolate Guinness. Scrumdiddlyumptious.

Aloha!

I'm a beer drinker myself. I love a good tiki drink, but I can't always handle the acidic juices after a bit. I've been noticing that many breweries have tiki influenced beers. Some aren't so bad. Check out this thread about different Tiki Beers.

I have pie. Not sure if I always had it. Seems like that might not be a good thing. :pieface:
