Aloha,

I am a Houston Tikiphile and have been for some time. I love tiki culture and it’s history. I went to my first Ohana in 2017 and it was a great time! I was Cousin Eddie at the kickoff party that year. This year we are returning to Ohana! I can’t wait to again see the Tiki Resort and again see those great paintings in the hallway by Lewis VanDercar along with everyone’s smiling faces. I have been lucky enough to meet some of you at Ohana of course as well as at the great Moai Icehouse in Austin or attending Meat Church services. (It’s a Texas thing ya’ll. ). Of course locally we are regulars at Lei Low when not making cocktails at our home bar. All the Moai I have met have been great people and it’s finally time to get to know you better. My wife Frangipani should be signing on soon as well.

Mahalo,

“Where good rum is immortalized and drinking is an art”

Aloha Squeaky Tiki! To be honest I really love my Shag mug from Ohana 2017. It is just awesome! I have a really cool custom mug though that Eekum Bookum did for a local home bar that my friend at Aloha Texas Tiki company designed with a really cool PNG style that I really like. As far as wish lists I have always wanted one of those Steve Crane bird bowls perhaps just for the oddness of it and of course anything from the Kahiki. I did recently get my first Mug No 1. I guess it’s tough to pick just one!
