Tiki not Tacky

Great article today in the Washington Post by Jason Wilson on Tiki Drinks and bars.

From the article:
"Tiki was a very unironic big night out," says Jeff "Beachbum" Berry, who has spent the last decade researching tiki culture and writing a series of tiki books, most recently "Sippin' Safari." "There wasn't anything kitschy about it at the time. It was an escape. In the 1940s, people didn't travel. A tiki bar was where the mid-century Organization Man went to escape his white-collar job, his big mortgage and the threat of nuclear annihilation."
