Tiki Road Trip: A Guide to Tiki Culture in North America

Tiki Road Trip: A Guide to Tiki Culture in North America

By James Teitelbaum
This book is dedicated to the faded but not forgotten cult of Tiki kitsch and follows the fad that began with an American fascination with the exotic and culminated in a drinking and dining experience known as "Polynesian Pop," complete with its own soundtrack and pop aesthetic. In this guide to the remaining U.S. and international tributes to Tiki, Teitelbaum unearths the source of the Tiki craze and preserves pop culture history by listing and rating the diaspora of Tiki bars, restaurants and sites, providing a glossary of Tiki terms and a list of classic drink recipes.
