Have only driven by, but perhaps they have a tiki or 2, or not.....



Suzy~
I would guess probably not...

Yeah, they do have "Polynesian" in the name, and after looking at their Photo Gallery, it looks like they have a nicely stacked....er...um...I mean stocked bar, but the bar doesn't seem to look very Polynesian or tropical to me.

Their calendar of events for August & September are only filled with "LA Hardbodies" contests and "Martini Madness"...hardly, or I should say, not very Polynesian to me.

I'm sure the owners won't change anything if they are getting the constant crowd that is pictured in their gallery. It's probably a good Mardi Gras/Girls Gone Wild location.

Stop by next time if you can. Maybe there are some hidden tikis? See if they can mix a Mai Tai. You can report on it in the Locating Tiki Forum. Even a psuedo-tiki location needs a report so any of us traveling know whether or not it's worth the stop.

Good eye though in catching the sign and name while driving by.

Hi SugarCaddyDaddy,
I noticed those pictures in the photo gallery. I didn't check the schedule, but must confess, I read somewhere they had a a "lingerie night" Shudder.....

Perhaps I will break my Puritanical code and go in one day. Actually, I have heard their ads on the radio. And considering they are in the "Warehou$e District, well, they have sand!!!

Maybe there is a tiny tiki with it's eyes tightly closed facing the wall in protest, waiting to be rescued?

You know, between this, Aloha Sharkeez, and that new Tiki Bob's chain, I am going to have to come up with a new ranking on the Tiki Bar Review Pages or future editions of Tiki Road Trip just for these places (get ready for another 80's movie reference) - THE FINGER!

What do we call these places?

Fratiki (Frat - Tiki)?
No, I don't want to sully the holy word Tiki mixing it with the anti-Tiki itself: Frat.

Knuckhead Luau? Too clunky.

Any ideas for a convinient word to clearly classify these places?

Constants:

Girls who shout "woooooooo"! a lot, especially when doing a mostly booze-free shot.

Pineapple and grendine "mai-tais".

Lack of Tikis, few that exist afre colorful and cartoony.
Worse: a "party-animal" tiki mascot.

Techno, hip hop, or classic rock DJ.
dB level above 100 (technical term for: TOO LOUD!).

Bikini contests.

Sticky concrete floors, easily hosed down.

Tropnoxious Saloons
Luaud Venues
Hurricane Hell Holes
Imitation Crap Shacks

Since they seem to be populated with the Tappa Tappa Kegga crowd, how about "Griki"?

WABETIES
(wah-bee-tees)

"WAnna-BE-TIki-EStablishment"

The sound of this word sounds more like an African word rather than Hawaiian~Polynesian word, but all the more reason why it would be a good name...

African is to Hawaiian~Polynesian as Polynesian Joe's is to The Mai Kai. Each is very distant and non-comparative to one another in every aspect. And one will NEVER be like the other!

Say it with me now...
"WABETIES...WABETIES...WABETIES...WABETIES..."

Just my 2 coconuts worth.
