SilverLine,

I have one...



Mine is from '66. Tang Lao did get a mention in the Black Velvet Masterpieces book.

I've had this one for years that eventually became named Sharon Tate With Asparagus


and this has been in the tiki space for a while and later I noticed it has a slight resemblance to the picture in Slacks Ferret's Tiki Playing Poker print.

Mark,

Are you local to the Sacramento area? The estate auction was pretty devoid of anything else pertaining to the Zombie Hut, so your story makes sense. It would be greatly appreciated if you could share any more information on the Zombie Hut, including, if at all possible, photos of anything you have related to the the place. I am surprised not more of the stuff surfaces around here.

If you are able to contact the former owners decendants for more information about the Zombie Hut and share it here, there are quite a few of us that would find this fasinating.

Thanks for posting and welcome aboard. Look forward to hearing more!

Yes, I am local to the Sacramento area. I see the family alot. I live with one of the Grandkids. We are trying to get some information. When Beatrice passed away many pieces she still had got passed down to people that have also passed away, so sadly much of the family stuff has been sold off little by little. What I think is a Tyree painting simply disapeared one afternoon and we think the daughter sold it.

We only have one tiki peice. A hand carved wooden serving platter. But we have several glasses including brown glass wine glasses that could be considered tiki....maybe. (they are all from the restaurant) As for art....another artiast that had a good deal of work is a gentleman by the name of Barrick. Jim Barrick. We have several portraits of the family. Bee's Son Teri from the early 1960s, his mother, Bee's daughter Wynona and the Grand kids. They are all from the late 50's and early 60's.

A family friend has done some extensive photgraphy of the family at the restaurant so I do have some great shots of the Zombie Hut.

I'll post some pics and scans to share. I should probably start a thread or post on a thread with a related subject for that.

I just started a Wikipedia page for Zombie Hut.

Mark

Mark,

So glad you responded back and we all look forward to anything you can post regarding the Zombie Hut. Sacramento had a few wonderful tiki establishments back in the day, and I for one, would like to see more information about all of them.

I was fortunate enought to visit the Zombie Hut on several occasions, although at the time I was unable to drink because I was underage (at least there). Fond memories of the Polynesian floor show and most wonderful food. Any pictures, stories, artwork and pieces of history via menus, glassware or any restaurant or barware would help us with connections to possibly the greatest and longest running tiki fame in Sacramento. The Locating Tiki thread is probably where you should post this, but I know no matter where you do, I will be happy to read and see the things you post!

Mahalo,

PTD

Sorry this thread has been hijacked slightly, but Mark,

If you have the opportunity to to discuss the Zombie Hut with anyone who has history about it, as far as I can document, Sacramento had four established Tiki joints:

The Zombie Hut/Freeport Blvd.

The Coral Reef/Marconi and Fulton

Tiki Bob's/Downtown Sacramento

Tiki Hut/Marconi and Watt

I have heard of another spot on Freeport, south of the Zombie Hut, yet unconfirmed.

If you have the chance to discuss these places as they were kind of competition to each other, can you find out if your Zombie Hut connections have any stories or knowledge of them?

Thanks again,

PTD

Last High jack. Just one image to follow through on this thread. Here is a great shot (well actually it's blurry, but...) that shows the stage area of the Zombie Hut in it's original form from 1962. I love the palm tree. This is the classic Tiki look from the "Golden Age" of Tiki. By 1967 the "Zombie Hut" had been remodeled and a sleeker look was given. The interesting thing for tiki enthusiats is the new floor that was put in with a Tiki mask.

I think the artist cleverly made his signature illegible, so that later he could not be held responsible for his art crimes.

Haha!
I love how the artist spent SO MUCH TIME getting the reflective blue light on her bare breast right - but completely blew off making the face look like a human's.

Guess he knew where most people's eyes went anyway...

See, now THAT is a masterpiece.
Notice the subtle sheen of the reflection of the commode on the floor.
Beautiful.
