New England tikiphiles have reached the critical mass neccessary to get off their duffs and meet each other. Every once in a while, tiki lovers from an area realize that there are enough of them to meet up in person and enjoy some tiki as a group. New England is following in the footsteps of the now-thriving communities in Southern California, the Bay Area, Seattle, Portland, Florida and Washington D.C., where tikiphiles meet regularly, and many friendships have formed.
New England has a fair amount of tiki to choose from; the two places that have been considered for a gathering are Hu Ke Lau in Chicopee, MA, and Kowloon in Saugus, MA. A date has not yet been set, but the momentum looks like it will hopefully happen in the next few weeks. If you live in the New England area and are interested in meeting other tikiphiles, be sure to jump right on in — tikiphiles are a notoriously friendly bunch.
