Is there a Dewey Decimal classification for 'tiki'?

I'm anxiously awaiting three new titles for my library of cocktail books:

Trader Vic's Tiki Party by Stephen Siegelman; Hawaii Tropical Rum Drinks Cuisine by Don the Beachcomber; Scrounging the Islands with the Legendary Don the Beachcomber: Host to Diplomat, Beachcomber, Prince and Pirate by Arnold Britner.

I'm also the very proud new owner of Ed Hamilton's book, Rums of the Eastern Caribbean. I was lucky enough to score a copy from the Minister of Rum himself, and he was gracious enough to autograph the book for me.

  1. Have you read any of the Beachbum Berry books? They are my "go to" tiki drink references, along with the amazing Mai Kai recipes from I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Berry in Ft. Lauderdale last month at The Hukilau, and we was very nice.
    Looking forward very much to you opening in Chicago. The Hala Kahiki is a bit of a schlep from Andersonville!
