That should have been called the "Party City Tiki Room"

The room decor, stunning it its own right.



Several regrettable painted Tikis.





The abstract design on the floor really saves the day!

Amazing how within one generation, the knowledge and know how was lost. Those are Orchids Tikis, of course.

It looks like Polynesian night at a community center or retirement home.

This circus clown painted big tiki was for sale for quite a long time at Warehouse 1333 in Long Beach. It still could be, I haven't be in there in over a year.



This tiki only had his eyes painted white so he got off pretty easy. He's still for sale at the Long Beach Antique Mall II.

He looks like he could have been a Mike Gildea job:

This ones been haunting me for years as it's just across the street from my regular surf break.
I talked to the guy who painted it for the owner who runs a surf school out of the building and he was SOOOO proud of his work that I couldn't bring myself to shoot holes in his psyche for this regrettable paint job on what appears to be a very nicely carved Tiki.
They have a water pipe strapped to it's back and it's being used as an outdoor shower for the customers to rinse off after their lessons.

I don't have pics, but the only Tikis for sale in my area are 100 miles away, and I refuse to buy them due to either being airbrushed, having Rolling Stones tongues, buck teeth, or a combination. Terrible disgrace....
