Tiki Culture in America

A lot of people have been asking me questions about Tiki Culture in America (As if I were some sort of expert on the subject, just because I'm the author of Tiki Lounge Talk). Well, I don't report to be an expert on anything, but I do know my way around a Mai Tai. So, my newest project is to add a page to TLT explaining what Tiki Culture is to those who've not yet been fortunate enough to live it.

I've done a decent amount of research on the subject, much of it being behind my Tiki Bar researching rums. It's not going to be a long history of Tiki, just the major points along the way, something about its heyday, and of course the resurgence and what it means today.

Look for the new page on Tiki Lounge Talk early next week.

Green Tacos for St. Patty's Day

We did the corned beef and cabbage thing on Saturday - went to the Irish Festival in Ft Lauderdale. It was fun, watched part of the parade (saw a nice Packard), had some good food, and I think every Irish person in South Florida was there. I never saw so many light-skinned blondes and red-heads in one place, in South Florida!

So tonight we had the traditional SoFl green tacos, green refried beans and fried mexicorn. Food coloring is a wonderful thing.

Last night I decided that is was time the world learned the TRUTH about St. Patrick. So I set down the history of St. Patty's day, and why we celebrate. Find out all about it at!
