I am at the Ohana Luau on the Lake all weekend. It is being held at the Tiki Motor Inn Resort on Lake George, NY, which is billed as the last surviving 60s era tiki resort in America. I am so excited — in particular because Mr. Retro Renovation adores tiki. I plan to take lots of photos, drink many large sweet rum drinks, and acquire a polynesian name. So watch for a tiki report next week.

    It’s on our list of things to do, maybe next year. I’m still recovering from the weekend, we did my Bachelor Party down in Baltimore.

    We even had a boat in the Anacortes Yacht Charters fleet named Ohana…and I still don’t know what the word means! Wikipedia here I come!

    There did used to be a squalid and sorta disreputable chinese restaurant in town here called the China Delight which boasted an even more disreputable lounge called the Rattan Room. No carved idols, but otherwise pretty much Tiki down to all the bamboo abd grasscloth on the walls, the bar, the overhead…phony palms, the works! Dated to the early 60’s and lived until the owner died about 5 years ago. You couldn’t have paid me to eat the food and I’m not sure I’d have taken a date there, but it sure was cool!
