I love Wildwood, NJ
Someone on TC had a plan to have a tiki event there some day
Many of the classic motels are gone. Everyone should pay a
visit here soon. Stay at the STRARLUX or CARIBBEAN motels
Have dinner at the MAD BATTER down the road in Cape May NJ

Alameda, Ca, 'cause why else would Jab move there from San Diego?
Dunno the answer to the above question, but the fair Pacific island of Alameda has a few other reasons to be a contenduh in this debate:
 It is in fact a Pacific island, something which very few other contending cities can claim.
 Forbidden Island.
 Firetiki. Does your candidate for tikiest city have as classic a place to outfit a tiki bar and clothe its patrons?
 Of all the places thus far mentioned, it's the closest to the co-birthplace of tiki, Hinky Dinks/Trader Vic's.
 If you leaven your tikiphilia with a love of the cuisine, and especially the Rum Drinks, of other tropical isle environments, Havana is the best Caribbean restaurant, and bar, in the bay area.
 Forbidden Island again, and again, and again.
 The short drive to Conga Lounge, Trader Vic's, and Kona Club, and a shorter walk to, or stumble home from, as I did tonite, Tiki Tom's.
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes.
