Denver tikiphiles aren’t just sitting around twiddling their thumbs as they wait for the re-emergence of the on-hiatus Tiki Boyd’s; they’re keeping the fires burning with a “Tiki on the Town” event, sponsored by the new Rocky Mountain Tiki Newsletter.

Tomorrow night, April 1, folks are meeting up at the Twin Dragon Restaurant & Lounge (3021 South Broadway in Englewood) at 7pm for flaming pupu platters, volcano bowls, and drinks served in tiki mugs. It’s actually a Chinese restaurant, but you have to take your tiki where you can get it in lean times. Afterward, the group is heading over to Skylark Lounge (140 South Broadway, just north of Alameda) for a show by surf band The Beloved Invaders. Newcomers are welcome (just chime in on the thread on Tiki Central, so they know how many to expect), and be sure to wear your best aloha wear!

The Rocky Mountain Tiki Newsletter is a new publication by ZuluMagoo, a free and irregularly published periodical to keep the newly-percolating Denver tiki scene hip to the goings-on. If you’d like to receive the Rocky Mountain Tiki Newsletter, drop a line to ZuluMagoo at

    [...] Boyd’s that is in the works. The past year has already seen some dramatic movement in the local Denver tiki scene, and this news is the best yet. If we didn’t have Forbidden Island opening here in the Bay [...]
