Aloha friends and thank you for the warm welcome!

My name is Jimmy and I am eager to learn more about FOM. I recently stumbled across this group and was surprised I had not heard of it before; if I had, I would have tried joining sooner!

A little about me: I am 26 and recently moved to Washington, DC (though from St. Louis originally). I work in government, but outside of work enjoy traveling, reading, fly fishing, and adding to my collection of presidential campaign posters. Oh, and I am an avid tikiphile, too.

I first fell in love with tiki while a graduate student in Beijing. The Tiki Bungalow quickly became my regular haunt and inspired a budding interest in all things tiki. While the Tiki Bungalow will always be my "first", I've had the privilege of visiting tiki bars around the world, from Trader Vic's in Tokyo and London to Rumpus Tiki Bar in Vienna. Each is special in its own way, and to me that is part of what makes this hobby so enjoyable. At home I have a modest mug and liquor collection, but have perfected Vic's 1944 Mai Tai and the original Jungle Bird. I haven't had a chance to visit DC's tiki bars yet, but am excited to do so once things go back to normal.

I hope membership will allow me to develop my interest in and appreciation for tiki culture and give me a chance to get to know people in my new city. It is always hard moving, especially in times like these!

Aloha from Loudoun!

If you're ever in Reston, Tiki Thai is great! I'm planning a meetup there once we're all vaccinated. https://www.tikithaireston.com

Their sister restaurant in Ashburn, Sense of Thai, isn't 100% Tiki but they serve a mean cocktail. In the past, they do this awesome Tiki Popup that I hope comes back this summer. https://www.senseofthai.com
