Tiki Culture History and Trivia

What Do You Know About the History of Tiki?

Lately, I've been in quite the tiki state of mind. First I waxed poetic over a scorpion bowl at San Francisco institution The Tonga Room, then I attended a tiki-themed party, and most recently, I found myself guzzling a Singapore Sling at the rum bar Smuggler's Cove. Since all those tiki-carved mugs and pineapple cocktails have been at the top of my brain, I figured I'd make the most of it and test your propensity for Pacific Rim cuisine and cocktails. What do you know? Take this quiz to find out!

Question 1 is False, not True. The Planter's Punch, Ti Punch, and the Painkiller are just three "tiki drinks" invented in the tropics. Jamaica, Martinique, and the British Virgin Islands, for reference.

Woot! 8/10! Mmmm. Scropion Bowls. Zombie's and Mai Tai's. Oh my. My favorite Tiki Bar to go to is Hula's in Santa Cruz. Awesome drinks and just deliriously delicious sweet potato fries. :drool:
