Over in Twitter land, where I often waste entirely too much time, they have a concept called Follow Friday. It is a sort of institutionalized Rule 2 movement, wherein on any Friday that you feel like it, you tweet the addresses of other Tweeters who you recommend to others. I thought that I’d double up the concept this first Friday in Tiki Month with a blog post Follow Friday, giving the Twitter addresses of those Tiki-oriented folk I follow. If they have a (remotely) Tiki-oriented blog, I’m completing the Rule 2 circle by linking that as well.
Joe Garcia. “The most brilliant screenwriter not working in Hollywood these days” has a deep Tiki streak in him.
His blog, Basic Civilization, isn’t a Tiki blog, but it is well worth reading for assorted lifestlye musings.
Critiki. This feed keeps you up to date on any updates to the world’s best site to find and rate the resurging world of Tiki
Among his other entertaining characteristics, Snikitiki has managed to live long enough to actually be older than
Doctor Bamboo. Charter member of the Board of Tiki Idols. Official Illustrator of the Cocktailosphere™. Occasional but very skilled blogger. (I’ll be in trouble if I don’t also tell you to follow his wife, the BambooBabe.)
MikeMonello. Mike loves his Tiki, but most of his tweets, like mine, range all over the place.
ColonelTiki. Old-school cocktail blogger and owner of kicking home Tiki bar. He protects his feed, so you must be privileged to follow him or something. (He’ll probably ban me for promoting his feed.)
Tiare62. One of the first bloggers who got me into this “art form”. Also a charter member of the Pegu Blog Board of Tiki Idols. She writes A Mountain of Crushed Ice in a completely not incongruous location for Tiki, Scandinavia….
Trader Ti… BG_Reynolds. Another of the old school bloggers who started out back in the day. He’s gone and made a successful business out of making Tiki ingredients. You need his stuff, and should go order some right now so you can have it before Tiki Month is over. Start with some orgeat, and maybe some falernum.
There are some other Tiki folks I follow, but their are for the most part manufacturers, and I’ll be featuring them in the SideBlog as Tiki Month goes by.
