If Mr. Chin decideds to re-open it, you can bet I will be the first one in the door, in a coconut bra and everything.

I will rock that place HARD.

It's time to bring the coconuts back to Cass Corridor!

I also have some vintage interior shots from the Chin Tiki's heyday that BigBro mailed me, if anyone is interested, I will scan those babies and post them.

Chin up, kids!

If you look at Tiki Fish's pictures of the Chin Tiki, you will notice that there are two missing Polynesian tiles on the buildings facade. Mr. Chinís son, who makes them himself, has since replaced them. If you happen to be in the neighborhood take a close look, you will notice that there are two small Mís molded into one of the tiles. Can you guess whose initials they are?
