WHEREAS, Duchess Malvoideae and I, Disneyophiles and DVC Members based out of The Polynesian, did fall in love with The Vibe at Trader Sam's, and not knowing the Greater World of Tiki, did bring it home with us

WHEREAS, we then created our own Tiki Bar at home, still ignorant of the Polynesian Pop Escapist Culture

WHEREAS, in search of music for our Tiki Bar we did discover a song called The Hukilau, which led us to discover The Hukilau, where the laulau is the kaukau, which then led us to exclaim "We Have Found Our People!"

WHEREAS, we have now attended Two Hukilaus, are regulars at The Moloka‘i Bar at the Mai Kai and the Gumbo Limbo Chapter's Monthly Tiki Bingo

WHEREAS, we have extended our craft and knowledge, also exploring the arts of Post Prohibition Cocktails

NOW THEREFORE, I, Commodore Oleo-Saccharum, do humbly announce my intention to seek membership in the Fraternal Order of Moai

ALOHA!

Thanks, Reverend! A pleasure meeting you. We're really looking forward to getting back to business more usual.

We have a small, older, Fort Lauderdale home and decided the best use of our "Florida Room" was TIKI. We're presently working on adding some cast iron pipe shelves for more bottles on the floor and hanging from the ceiling along the window to add some extra steam punk tiki vibes, because escapism is fun.

Aloha!

Nice photos of your bar, it looks really nicely done. We hang out in our lounge we call the Kapu Cove, just a little west of you at 595 & 441.

Looking forward to seeing you and the Duchess at the next Tiki Bingo (online or in person). Once we start having gatherings again, we will have you over.

Go Navy!

Kia Ora,
OZ.

Aloha! ... totally distracted by your beautiful home tiki bar pictures, wishing I was there, backlit by aqua ... and, I'm back! I have to admit, after reading soooooo many proclamations these days, this was the best one. Welcome to you and the Duchess!

Thanks, Rocket Betty, Might OZ and Tiki Tom Tom! Aloha!

Meeting up is inevitable. I look forward to raising a glass.

Tiki Tom, it’s Ikea LED strip lighting that cycles through the spectrum. I mounted it under the second row of Amaro. Affordable AND Fun!

You two as well! It was a blast running into you both as well during last night's tiki bingo. Now I need a gong!

I'm going to try to talk the Duchess into next Wednesday, if the doors are open. JET PILOTS FOR EVERYONE!
