Aloha!

I just signed up, and am happy to be here! I've recently found an interest in Tiki culture and beverages, to some extent because a friend mentioned this group.

I'm an avid home cook and drink mixer, love cocktail culture in general, and have an affinity for fraternal orders and funny hats. I am an active member of the Freemasons, and other fraternal orders under that umbrella. In fact, the friend that turned me on to The FOM is a brother mason.

I'd love to get to know the members and one day become a member!!

Bottoms up!

B

Aloha! Welcome aboard! ...er, ashore!

...and cheers!

Favorite cocktail and pie?

Jet Pilot and Key Lime, here.

Unless we're having Zombies and Bourbon Chocolate Key Lime Pie.

Maybe then, too.

Or both.

...er, all.

Hahhah so far it's "temporarily closed" as are basically all bars.

I work in film and television, specifically visual effects.

I dunno I dig the whole tiki vibe, I think the complexity and depth of the cocktails, the aesthetic, and honestly the niche-ness of it is appealing. I like weird cultures that most people have forgotten.

Fair enough! Well it certainly is a niche of its own brand of cray (which I LOVE about it!)

I will hope that Tiki T's manages to survive the times, it one of my most fab=vorite tiki bars, due to its cozy size and overall vibe of neighborhood hang.

I DREAM of making one here where I live on the daily. Of course presently thats set aside a bit wondering how things will pan out w the world.

Special effects sounds awesome! I bet your knowledge can prove very helpful for building bars with special tiki effects!

Ha! all the quirks and nuances are what makes stuff like this so enjoyable. (and great drinks of course) My area of effects are unfortunately mostly done on computers, but Im pretty handy! I'd love a little tiki bar in the house, but as much as my wife is enjoying our nightly cocktail, I don't think I could convince her!
