Having the Kahiki about thirty miles away from where I grew up helped me get into tiki. Going to The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disney World didn't hurt either. I finally went to a Trader Vic's in 2009 and I'm going to the Mai Kai in 2010. I'm a bit of a retrophile overall: I also enjoy drive-in movies, fondue, and most anything history-related. Aloha!
