Northeast Tiki Tour II sold out!

North-east Tiki Tour IIThe Queequeg Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Moai has announced that the 2008 Northeast Tiki Tour, "Son of NETT," an annual pilgrimage to some of America's remaining Polynesian palaces, has sold out again this year.

This three-day event (September 19-21, 2008) includes a bus tour of five Polynesian lounges, raffles, performances by local and national musicians, a poolside evening of exotic and surf music, amateur mixologist exhibitions, a Polynesian dance show, and guided tours of Maori tattoo and Oceanic art exhibits at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.

Featured performers for 2008 include the surf band 9th Wave, the modern exotica band WAITIKI, Hapa Haole & Hawaiian music provided by our own Carl "Granite Tiki" Ayotte and the dancers of Polynesian Dance Arts! The tour is also welcoming featured guest tiki carver "Tiki Hana" and is sponsored by KegWorks, Stuff-o-Rama, The Lounge-o-leers, The Velveteen Lounge, Flat Earth Trading, and Gecko.

The Tour takes attendees on an archeological hunt for signs of the heyday of the tiki craze of the late 50s and early 60s when diners enjoyed pseudo-exotic dishes under the solemn gaze of enormous carved tiki figures and highly potent cocktails were served in fanciful vessels shaped like volcanoes, coconuts and skulls. Bamboo structures, tropical foliage, outrigger canoes and primitive fishing gear offered mid-century Americans an escape from daily life.

Northeast Tiki TourThe Northeast Tiki Tour was founded in 2007 to help build awareness of and generate respect for the historical value of the remaining Polynesian establishments through out the Northeast. Each event offers tiki devotees, mid-century enthusiasts and cocktail aficionados a rich and valuable experience.
