Tiki Central Profile
Our home laboratory of bottles and potions for experimenting with tiki drink recipes scares our neighbors. Our mugs frighten them even more. But they always leave with a tipsy smile on their face.
As our recipe file grew, our tiki shelf morphed into many shelves. We prefer the classic, older mugs, especially with connections to restaurants and other places, but we enjoy the newer creations as well. We also have a fondness for skulls, shrunken heads and other haunted tiki souls. Our collection includes a graveyard of the tortured tikis that have been tragically broken during shipment--it helps them cross over peacefully to the other side where there are no mai tais.
How did we get here? A trip to the Beverly Hills Trader Vic's in 1969 as a little girl. Nights at our local and fabulously tacky Blue Hawaii restaurant in Portmouth, VA in the 1970s. Trips last year to Hawaii and San Diego fueled our tiki pursuits even further. Need. More. Mugs.
