How ‘bout a little Martin Denny...

Three-Day Tiki Party. You’re Invited.
Clayton Hauck

Show me a man who doesn’t like tiki, and I’ll show you a man who doesn’t like fun.

Tiki means daiquiris. Hula skirts. The jungle stylings of Mr. Martin Denny.

So sound the conch for the return of the Chicago Area Tiki Tour — a rum-soaked guided tour exploring Chicago’s Tiki lounges far and wide — coming one weekend only this April.

Tickets are on sale at this very moment.

The three-day event is hosted by Red Palms, the Illinois chapter of the Fraternal Order of Maoi, a group of Tiki enthusiasts dedicated to all things Polynesian pop culture.

On offer: exclusive drinks and eats from five island watering holes across three days. No lines. No waiting. Vibes as laid-back as a tropical drink. Transportation included.

You’ll hit up Three Dots, of course. Dine exclusively for brunch (!) at Lost Lake/Thank You.

But it gets better: there will be fire-knife dancers at the Tiki Terrace.

And you’ll visit the most well-preserved gem of the Midwest: Hala Kahiki. So many thatched roofs. Rattan chairs. More than 100 tropical drinks. Tiki heaven.

Tickets are extremely limited. So get ‘em on today.

And bring a date.

Bet she loves a good daiquiri, too.
