    It’s happening again…

    I’ll be touring the west coast starting August 5th in Tacoma and ending August 13th in Palm Springs.

    Celebrating a year after the release of the Mai-Kai book, I and my editor Mrs. Swanky will be visiting the west coast.

    First stop will be Seattle and in particular Tacoma Cabana. I’ll be doing a presentation there along with the book signing Saturday August 5th starting at 4PM FB Event here, tickets for presentation online here and at the door.

    Next we head to San Francisco and a book signing at Smuggler’s Cove on Monday August 7th at 6PM. Rumor is we will visit Humuhumu’s Balhi H’ai as well.

    From there we jet on to LA and a signing with Bob & Leroy at Oceanic Arts on Wednesday Aug. 9th from 2 to 4. That’s leaves time to get over to the Tiki Ti for the toast to Ray.

    And on Friday at noon, I will give a presentation at Tiki Oasis, and then on Saturday at 11 I’ll be signing books at Tiki Oasis.

    From there we go to Palm Springs for a book signing at the Tonga Hut Saturday at 7PM.

    We are looking forward to exploring all these places with the ohana and signing lots of books. Come visit us when we are in your city!

  • The Tiki Lunch Hour

    UPDATE 3/4/2017: Tiki Centralite HopeChest realized the Tiki Bob Mainland location is now the current location of Pagan Idol. Not even the owners realized it due to a wrong street address perpetuated over time. The below image was the key!

    From Rogue Magazine, November 1959 we have these images of a great idea in Tiki History, the lunch hour lingerie show! This was at the San Francisco Tiki Bob’s. This place is now closed, but the Tiki Bob support pole is still there, waiting. And you thought the Mai Kai bar gals were a little risque!

    Man, dig those skull mugs!
