In almost every way comparable, the German Beer Palaces of the Mid-west mirror the Tiki Palaces in their attempt to create a paradise that never was but oddly seems to linger in the recesses of human memory as if they really were reality.

I concur! (...s touched on here):

...which also brings up the sad fact that the decline and disappearance of Bavarian themed restaurants and delis in the American urban landscape almost parallels that of Tiki establishments! But that is another thread, sometime, somewhere else...

I LOVE that list! Please ad:

Hula dancing..............Shoeplattln (you know, that slapdance thing)
Mystery Girl............... Bierstein waitress

And (pardon for veering further off the subject), but there is another connection between the American rendition of German folk art and Tiki:

When viewing the 1938 Disney classic "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs" (based on a German fairy tale), I was struck by the fact that the "Bavarian folk art"-style carved beams and furniture in the country cottage began to dance and sing: This was clearly the precedent to the concept of animating the Enchanted Tiki Room's Tikis (which, in turn, became the model for all of Disney's audio-animatronics attractions).
