Here are two old Detroit ads from the 1967 Yellow Pages. One for the Chin Tiki and the other for a non-tiki place, but I thought it was cool enough to post.

Wow! That "the Tikis" ad is very cool. Where is that ad from Polynesiac? A phone book? or...??

Here's a shot of an old ad for the Aku Aku at the Stardust Hotel from the Yellow Pages in a 1964 Telephone Book from Las Vegas, NV. I posted this a while back in a different thread. I picked up this old phone book a couple of years ago at my local swap meet.

It's from a newspaper. A co-worker of mine went one of those nights and kept the ad in her scrapbook.
great post idea, by the way

I'm guessing that should have said "Exciting" not "Exiting". Freudian slip?

Yeah!! good catch Swank! I never noticed that...unintentional forshadowing....

I'll have to ask her what year she went...it'd be freaky if this is from the summer before they closed!

Rejoice! The color photo that that image is based on will be in my new book. Sans the blow fish (the graphic artist must have added it to fill the empty space), but also without that sign blocking the view of the Tiki. It was taken on the stairs leading down from the first floor to the ground floor.

September 9 fell on a Saturday in 1961, 1967, 1972 and 1978. What year did the Tikis close?
