Happy to be of service Jab!

It just kills me to think this sign might be in a landfill right now. It would have been a grand treasure in any collection of Tiki artifacts.

I wonder if this place was ever a tiki bar or the owner just got this sign from some other tiki bar and decided to stick it up there.

If it wasn't originally made for this bar then where did it come from I wonder?

I've heard back, and according to the owner of the bar the sign was destroyed by a wind storm back in January...

I think just about any of us here would have loved to give the sign a new home! I would have been perfectly happy even ending up with the pieces after the storm It must have blown off the roof and broken the plastic panels. I think the tiki was probably hollow so maybe it was crushed when it landed...
