All I remember about this place was big tikis out front and begging my parents to go there. They probably replied with something like, "Shut up, you." It must have closed when I was in college (88-92). Anyone remember it? It's a 99 Restaurant now. (how I hate it)

From my phone book research, I think this place closed in 1987. I also found out it was a motor lodge too so if you got too drunk you could stumble out back to a room. Here's a pic.




Things must have been desperate in 1986. From their 1986 yellow pages ad: "We now have country music and line dancing in our new Hee Haw Lounge." Golly.

I do remember this place but, I never went there. I do, however, have a mug!

Hey, Pappy:
Do you have any info about the Mauna Kai in Marlboro or the Wind Tiki in Worcester?

No and almost nothing. I'm a failure. It's a good thing I didn't pursue my history degree because I can't dig up anything.

Hey Rick, the Wind Tiki is still open and really not a bad place at all. There is no actual tikis, but lots of bamboo and it IS (sort of) an A-frame building. I would compare it with the Bali Hai in Saugus. Drinks are OK, food is good, and they got a cool ceiling to floor waterfall in the middle of the "grotto room".
Ya wanna go some night?

Another place I "frequent" is the Kahula in Southbridge, MA. ZERO tiki, but there has been some nights I've walked out of there staggering with just 2-3 drinks.

The Wind Tiki may not be a bad place for the NE tiki clan to meet at sometime.

Yikes. I lived three blocks from there and I never went, not even for takeout. If we're gonna go someplace w/o tiki, I'd vote for a place that at least has good Chinese food. (My apologies to Mr. Woo.)

Pappy, are you referring to the Wind Tiki or Kahula? I didn't think the food at Wind was all that terrible. (certainly not the best I've ever had). The Kahula on the other hand......that's a "drinks only" kind of place!

Also, After talking with Rick this past weekend, he informed me that he was talking about the defunct Wind Tiki in Worcester, MA. I was referring to the one in Webster, MA. I did not realize there was another one.

Hawaii 1220
definitely worthy of further discussion.
And why 1220?

Whoaaa Nelly! That is one swank watering hole! In my mind's eye, I can see shag carpeting and chunky resin lights glowing inside a Witco land. Or perhaps it was just a standard Orchids of Hawaii outfitted Fu joint - but the outside is killer!
