Well thank you so much! I know you and possibly a few others know me but not too many others do, so I'll introduce myself. My name is Rocky and I run a cigar and cocktail bar in Pittsburgh. I have 3 kids and a dog. I make music, I enjoy working on and riding motorcycles. I tell horrible "dad" jokes.

I guess I first got interested in tiki when I was living in Detroit, strange, I know. But I was working in a gallery there and an artist (can't remember their name for the life of me) had a bunch of tiki work on display there. They also had a book that was just called "Tiki". I was maybe 22 at the time and I really loved the style of it.

As I got older I got more into cigars and cocktails, but most cocktails paired with cigars are pretty simple and whiskey-based. I wanted to branch out but wasn't sure how.

On a trip to Vegas, a local friend there suggested I go to Frankie's Tiki Room. I walked in and fell in love. I realized within a few minutes that Tiki wasn't just a category of drinks or a style of art, but a whole lifestyle. I really, really dug it.

I started reading more about it, experimenting with cocktails, and picking the brains of my friends that were into it.

I guess the main reason I'm here is to meet new people that can teach me new things about it, talk with the friends I already have, and maybe make some new ones.

Welcome FlamingoGringo - nice to meet you! There are a lot of musicians in here - what kind of music do you make? I do surf, exotica, and classical.

I'm into everything, I just love to play. My last band was a punk/glam act. Crazy costumes, makeup, etc. I had a surf/goth band called Lei in my Grave. I've been getting more into drunken hillbilly/bluegrass lately. I had another fun rockabilly band years ago.
