Revenge of the Tiki IV at Kreepy Tiki in Fort Lauderdale: 23 Bands, Pinup Girls, Vintage Cars, and More

By Erick Lappin

When you go to an event and the door guy takes a Sharpie and draws a happy face on your hand because they ran out of wristbands, then you know fun is on its way. And it's likely helped along by the free drink that comes with your parking ticket.

That's how things unfolded Saturday at tattoo, boutique, and bar Kreepy Tiki in Fort Lauderdale. It was the fourth edition of the Revenge of the Tiki festival, a full-day affair that stretched from noon to 3 a.m.

After a three-year gap, Monterey Club promoter Rob Stannard and Kreepy Tiki owner Jackson Valiente combined an exhibition of classic cars from the '40s, '50s, and '60s with live music and sexy pinup and burlesque shows -- in two different spots, both inside and outside at the big parking lot in rear.

"When we started the first time, my partner and I did everything ourselves," said Stannard. "Now, we have a full-scale stage. Besides growth, we have more vendors this year."
