Dig those crazy tikis!



Balinese-looking tikis may be vampires too.



Identical tikis with different paint jobs.



The food was great. I can't remember what I got--Bum Go Chicken or something--it was first rate. I got a drink called the Tiki Tiki which was dreadful but I think Carl and Kate liked their drinks. The place does sell some Dynasty Mugs (I think the brown headhunter, the generic tiki one (you know the one I mean) and the Fu Manchu. I wanted to talk to the owners and get their story but after a GRUELING 90 minutes whipping around Medford, lost, in a two-car convoy, trying to find Middlesex Ave. (&^#^@ Mapquest...), I just didn't have the time nor inclination. This place is the sister restaurant of the Tiki Ports in Hyannis.

You should go if you can find it.

Was it only 90 minutes? I think we were lost longer than that!

They also sold two styles of Hawaiian Shirts at the counter with the mugs!

And they had two mugs they gave away with drinks, but they were those all while Budha type ones if I remember correctly.

Our drinks DID come in Tiki mugs though, which was nice.

Thanks for inviting us pappy, even with the long drive and being lost, we had a blast!

My wife went into heart failure in that place about 15 years ago. Fortunately, her great docs fixed the problem shortly thereafter.
