Tiki Time in Maui 2017


Here is just a little photo journey of some of the Tiki's we saw while in Maui this year.

Chilling with a tiki outside the Kaanapali Grille and Tap Room





We took the kids Zip-Lining over on the road to Hana side of the island---so I really was hoping to stop and just grab a drink before we took the kids to eat at Mama's Fish House.

No such luck...you needed to have reservations at 4pm just to get in and with the kids they wouldn't let us go in the bar area.....
Oh Well here is a Tiki from just outside in the driveway.



I knew there would be some Tiki's at Cheeseburger in Paradise and with the kids it made totally since to stop and eat there the night we visited Lahaina









Over at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel sits a small outside Tiki bar that is most notable for the Giant Tiki outside of the their little outside Tiki bar called the Tiki Grill



   
It  loomed large like something out of a King Kong Movie





















                            Also in the Kaanapali area.













At The Hula Grill











Just Across from the Hula Grill there was some carving and Tikis for Sale






Tiki style in the shops of Maui from  ABC Stores to Hilo Hatties 















So long from  Kaanapali

Tikis of Oahu: The Pineappleman's Oahu Adventure: Tacky Tiki Cuckoo Coconuts


Tacky Tiki Time from Oahu.
  The last time I had visited Oahu OJ was being chased in a white Bronco.  Needless to say things had changed.   The International Marketplace so famous from the late 1980's was gone. There are now endless modern upscale shops.  I didn't come to Oahu to see stores I could visit at the Newport Fashion Island so on our trip this summer we searched for some old school Tacky Tiki.

Hidden on a random street a couple blocks in was a tini little Oasis of Tacky Tiki and a shop with Hawaiian shirts.

Cuckoo Coconuts

Our friends had visited this place on their trip earlier in the year so we had to stop and check it out. 
  It was plastic and cheesy but also a little fun.



You make your way past Giant Plastic Tikis, neon signs and giant Burgers and you will find a little hangout. 


                 Here are some pictures from our visit.




 














Since we were there I had to get a drink out of a Pineapple...
We just had fries and a couple of drinks.   All were just okay
 (what do you expect from a place with a 5 foot tall plastered shrimp at the entrance)



Here is a look at the inside of this little outside hangout. With fake painted backgrounds and everything.


I did like the little trailer/slash bar area.




I'm not sure if the entertainment is always the same , but the night we stopped in it was an odd over auto fixed collections of songs nobody under the age of 60 would even recognize.   If the entertainment had been better we probably would have  stayed and enjoyed this tacky Tiki hideaway a little more.
