Toxic Seafood Warning

There is much truth to the saying that we've all heard since childhood which is "you get what you pay for." Many of us, when purchasing fish and meat don't get to see where it comes from. Prices generally reflect where an item is from and often times the quality of food you're getting. Poke, a raw fish salad, when purchased at $10.99 to $14.99 there's a good chance that it's from the local waters in Hawaii, where as when priced at $4.99-$7.99 it's probably from Asia. There's places like Don Quixote (Holiday Mart) that have signs which tell you where your fish is from. Please view the video below issuing a Toxic Seafood Warning.

San Diego Spring Home Garden Show - Tiki Winners

Every industry show, we always do drawings for Tiki statues, gift certificates or our signature Tiki bar.  This past Spring Home and Garden show in San Diego, Chuck and Sheri Newton were the lucky winners of our Bamboo Tiki Bar!

Here's what they had to say.

Q: Why did you attend the Home and Garden Show?
A: We had just closed on our new home and we wanted to get some new ideas about what we could do as far as decorating the place.  This was the first Home and Garden show we had ever attended.

How to Care for Your Thatch

Thatch roof is one of the oldest forms of roofing known. Thatching is a craft that has taken many years to perfect, and has become extremely versatile in providing durable accents to any decor. The addition of a thatch umbrella kit or Tiki bar is an easy and effective way at setting the tropical tone to your landscape. Tropical thatch can be used to cover roofs, umbrellas, tiki bars, or accent other structures. Bamboo and Tikis brings you high quality coco palm thatch roof panels from Mexico (also known as palapas), cape reed panels from Africa, and thatch panels from Fiji.
