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.

Welcome back SqueakyTiki. Significant others come and go, but tiki is forever.

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

Indeed. I actually have my mug collection written into my will.

Great! Mahalo! Just joined the tribe. It's looking like it will be the evening of Friday, March 20th so hope to meet up with some y'all Denver folk. Let us know if you road trip down to Texas... we have some little gems hidden along the way we can share with you too.

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:
