Incredible. Do you have a better image of that concept sketch? I want to read all the writing on there.

Whoa! Whered'ya..!? Man, it is so great to see other urban archeologists join in and share rare relics of lost Tiki temples unearthed by them! Mahalo!

FANTASTIC stuff!!! I'm thrilled a tikiphile has this stuff and it didn't all end up in a garbage can 64 years ago. With the ads dated from 1942, this place must qualify as Pre-Tiki on BigBro's chronology scale?

Biff, really impressive! But will you tease us forever, or will we ever hear how you came upon these documents? Was it the Frank Kent estate auction a couple of years ago, or did you tap into the Hafer family somehow?

Here's a drink menu mailer:






Does anyone know if there was any significant difference between the Skipper Kent's restaurant in San Francisco and the Zombie Village in Oakland? I'm guessing that Skipper Kent's came first and had the tusked genie motif before Zombie Village.

This small drink menu has the same drink descriptions as the ZV mailer above:



Matchbook:



I was wondering if all of the zombie mugs say Zombie Village on the bottom or if there were some that said Skipper Kent's.

All of this info is amazing. Thanks to all for sharing. You really gotta have some balls to name your business "Zombie Village". I would have gladly become the walking dead if it still existed.

Ditto! AND these pieces aptly prove my "Evolution of Polynesian Pop" theory: In all these photos and graphics there is not a Tiki in sight.
The fact that these places qualify as Pre-Tiki does not make these artifacts any less interesting, of course, they are rarer since they are older. They MUST be from a relative of the owners!...?

Got this matchbook from the Zombie Village with nice rendering of the building.




Sure wish I could have seen Bifcozz's stuff from this place
