It's very iffy to buy tiki gifts for a tiki freak if you don't know what you are doing. My parents OBVIOUSLY knew what they were doing when they got me this giclee print of a watercolor done by a New Orleans artist, of the now extinct Bali Ha'i on the Beach restaurant. Bali Ha'i was located in Pontchartrain Beach, a New Orleans amusement park that no longer exists. In the background is the famous Zephyr, the wooden roller coaster that was a New Orleans landmark.

Today we were walking around downtown Athens and found this kitschy plaster base shell and flamingo gee-gaw. Mitch says it will look great displayed with our Trader Vic's drink menu.
Below is a chip and dip plate we found yesterday at our favorite place, Agora. We plan to use this the next time our friends Beth Rene' and Hajro come to visit.
