The Hartford Courant newspaper picked up a Los Angeles Times' story about tiki lovers in California who've redecorated their house in tiki style.
So you stand in the mood-lit living room of Butler's suburban tract home and behold a molded concrete Tiki that bulges out of his fireplace like a colossal pot-bellied stove almost as tall as you are. With glowing red eyes the size of taillights, the Tiki breathes fire from its mouth. Intermittently, bursts of steam snort from its nose.
The story features quotes from the owner of a house with a tiki fireplace and photos of tiki-fabricator Bamboo Ben's home.
