It's Tiki Time

Strap on your coconut bra and pour some rum. Tiki mania is sweeping the city.

Spear pineapple chunks with these Pearl River party picks (twelve for $3) and dunk them in a 400-proof cocktail. Even humble cheese chunks catch the spirit when stabbed with a hula girl.
tiki salt and pepper shakers!Making Faces
A woman can’t live on scorpion bowls alone. Use Polynesian-themed handmade salt and pepper shakers ($10) to season whatever you’re throwing on the grill.
mermaid bottle opener!Top Off
Eventually you’ll tire of mixing elaborate, seven-foot mai tais and just want a cold brewski. Reach for this mermaid bottle opener ($15) to get the job done in style.
otto’s shrunken head mugs!
Perfect Vessel
Chugalug from one of these ceramic cups ($7) from Otto’s Shrunken Head. Vintage shops are a great source, too, but if you don’t feel like digging, click over to the extensive selection at Tiki Farm.
pinwheel straws!Pop a Wheelie
Pinwheel straws (twelve for $3.50) fulfill the Tiki mandate that no drink shall be served unadorned. Also, they are very entertaining after three rum punches.
