I know a lot of us have Elvis, in one form or another, in & around our Tiki space. I thought this would be a good day to post pics. Here he is in my Mauna Kai Lounge.


Mine is in the gararge instead, but its cool....

Atta boy! Cool frame.

This Elvis mug is one of my favorites.

one I did for a customer....

(Sorry, thought it said "Elvis in Space")

Nice, Sven!

i dig my elvis black light poster.

Big Kahuna, the next time you come to So Cal eat at Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Garden Grove. They have over 2000 Elvis themed items in their restaurant.

Naaaice! Gotta check that one out when I get back to town...

Elvis on our Munktiki Witco mug:

Thanks, Lori. I'll be there in November. That Munktiki Witco mug just went to the top of my list!

Loki-Tiki, the picture of Elvis that you chose for your Munktiki mug turned out a lot better that the glass fishing floats that I chose for mine.
Big Kahuna, those were a limited edition mug that Munktiki created this year. On one side you could have the name of your bar printed and on the other side you could choose your own picture to have printed on the mug. It was called Windows on Witco.

Hate to ruin it for you, but that's Don Ho.

I have Elvis in my music playlist, but not like most.

First, I got the video of Elvis Aloha from Hawaii, which has an opening segment of him arriving on the island, etc. and a tune I call "Hawaii USA" and I recorded it off the VCR and use that.

Secondly, there is a rare track Elvis did in his home with Charlie Hodge actually singing lead and E as back-up of "Beyond the Reef." I saw Charlie many times in Pigeon Forge at the Elvis show.

Ah. Only Elvis I knew of was the old Elviki.

Thank You!

How the heck did I miss that?

Nice, Slacks! I love those frames.

Is that the "Elviki" from Rita's in Kihei Maui. Actually I don't know if it was called Rita's when the "Elviki" was there. It closed down and recently reopened. Sadly the "Elviki" is gone.

nope.... I made that for a customer down in Marco Island, Florida... :)

Very cool.

I love Elviki!

I still have to officially start my build out in my new house - coming this winter hopefully, but here is what I have so far...

For me it started with my Velvis.

I then picked up the Elvis Pezley.

Then one day while out visiting a local antique mall I found this Elviki.

At my housewarming party a friend gave me this cutting board.

And a day after my party another friend gave me this picture that he was given on his wedding day back in the 90s.

Oh yeah... and sometimes this guy hangs out in the bar as well...

That's just the start.

Reviving this post. Found this. Thought it was a pretty cool find for a tiki room.

K

mahalo, mahalo very much.

I wonder if Elvis ever said that, I like to think so.

that opens a secret door, that leads down to the bat- jungle room?

This place is great. I am there all the time. If you like the fake mexican food like what they used to serve at Disneyland's now defunct "case de fritos", you will like this place!

Google Maps lets you explore the interior. Even the walls of the Ladies Restroom are documented...

After the loss of the Elvis Room at Mama's Mexican in Seattle I may have to visit this place on my upcoming trip.

Also, if all goes according to plan, I'll have a pretty major upgrade to the Elvis in my space topic in the coming months. Current goal is to have it done in time for the Tiki Kon home bar tour in July. The home bar tour is already sold out but I'll post pictures here after the event.

Since posting my previous pictures I have finally made progress building out my home tiki bar and have added even more Elvis elements.

I picked up a vintage decanter

Some 1980s reproduction glasses

And some swizzle sticks - including some NOS that are still in the bag - not shown

My home was on the Tiki Kon Home Bar Tour this year so I borrowed Liza's Elviki and put it next to mine

I framed a few albums and hung them on the wall - Need to get a picture of the Aloha From Hawaii that is hanging in a different area

I found an artist online that paints Elvis busts from a vintage mold. Mine is painted for Dia De Los Muertos

And I got one for Liza that is Frankenstein's Monster

And here is a replica of the Creepy Monkey that is on the coffee table in the TV Room at Graceland

I also have an entire Elvis nook that is in the basement but outside of the Tiki Bar.
