Inky Louise and I decided to create a gorgeous NYC TIKI Guide. It's a compilation of bar reviews, letters from TCites, interviews, and all things TIKI for NYC. It's a handout that we want to provide at this year's Hukilau and for anyone interested in the world of TIKI as it exists for NYC.
We want to include YOU in our project!

Submissions which are needed include:
feature on Zombie Hut (we already have Otto's and Wally's)
blurbs on Staten Island, Bronx, and NJ tiki
review of Niagara's Lei Bar
report on historic NYC tiki (Hawaii Kai, etc)
interviews about home tiki bars, tiki bathroom, or the tiki set-up you might have in your itty-bitty over-priced apartment/residence
reports of shops which sell TIKI
music reviews (Fisherman, Tiny Bubbles Band, etc.)

If you have other ideas or suggestions, please let us know!
Thanks,
Manic Cat

Manic, what a cool gesture! I know its still a ways away but I'll be in NYC next summer (2004). Who knows what will still be there at that time, but I'd definitely want to check out all the tiki sites and of course raise a Mai Tai with our Tiki Central NYC chapter.

Will this guide be available online?

I got it covered manic cat, I got it covered! :wink:

MC

yes!! (eventually) but our first step is creating the guide in print format so that it can be where it belongs--with your home bars, mugs, and BOTs. :)
and in your pocket w/ your subway map when you come to visit!

i'll be back the nyc area this summer. can i please help? i'll certainly be hitting chan's & the lee's & hope to meet some of y'all at the nyc places that'll be new to me!

MC

we would love the help!
Hukilau is June 27, so we need to send the package to the printers in early June. If you aren't in town before June, would you like to submit something about NY/NJ from overseas?

Let me know if you need anything from Otto's (Pics, menu, etc.) also look for our Singapore Sling to be featured in this sunday's NYTimes in the Sunday Stlye section.

I'm excited to see the Sling in print.
We are hoping to use the Atomic magazine review on Ottos (which my friend Alana wrote.) Did you ever get a copy? But I'm hoping to review Fisherman as well. But sure, we'll let you know if we can include more. We might be selling some small super-cheap ad space as well.

T

I never got a copy of the atomic issue. can you see if you can get me a copy
steve
thanks!

MC

I'll bring a copy over soon.

Message to STENTIKI....

We are expecting a intro letter from the Co-Huna!

This may be king Kameamea of the dumb questions, but what is Hukilau?

Wow, that sounds AWESOME! Can't make it, but I'll definitely be there bothering Shag in spirit.
