Tiki Time!

Why do some many people love Tikis, Hula Girls and all things Hawaiian?

I must say, it probably has a lot to do with any combination of the following:

  • Elvis Movies
  • Gidget Movies (more specifically the lifestyle Kahuna was living....who doesn't want that!)
  • 60s Cocktails (a different blog on that comin' up soon)!
  • Gilligan's Island
  • The Beach Boys
  • The 60s
  • Gentlemen's Magazines in the 50s and 60s
  • B-Grade Beach Party Films.......e.g. "Beach Blanket Bingo" etc.
  • All those cool Motels in Vegas before they wrecked it...The Flamingo, Trader Vic's, The Toucan, Castaways, The Palms, just to name a couple!
  • Tarzan Films
  • Hawaii itself, including the Tiki Bars, the Hula Girls (so graceful) and the Hawaiian Shirts (thanks Hawk-Eye, Honeycutt and BJ...Hawaii makes us think of happier times. 
  • I've done a bit of a link for the blokes below if they click the hula girl in case they love tiki/hawaiian - themed tees!

Anyhow, off to work on a great blog on retro cocktails.....I'm thinking Cheeky Tiki Facebook are overdue for a favorite retro cocktail month, so click on the link tomorrow for an August full of treats! What better way to prepare for Spring!
