Description:
The long gone predecessor to the Kahiki. I believe the year the Grass Shack burned down was 1959. I posted this a while back in the general tiki thread but thought it belonged here as well. Thanks

This from Tikiskip
"WOW! That is the place Bill Sapp and Lee Henry Had before the Kahiki!
He told me that when they got it it was a rough place, patron wise.
They got it for a testing ground for the Kahiki. They invented
And tested the drinks/food at that bar.

The place did burn down, on Bills Birthday!
He told me he went home (party was still going on)
And got a call from sondro Conti, Bar Manager/drink inventor
Who said "Boss we got a fire here"
Bill said "well put it out"
Sondro called back and said "hey boss this things getting pretty big"
Bill "are we going to be open tomorrow?"
Sondro then called back and said."Boss we no open tomorrow!"

They were going to start on the Kahiki the next day anyway.
Bill told me that they had matches with the raised boobs. I thought he was
mistaken but there they are!"

I will add some pics soon.

Being from Columbus, I have never heard a mention of this place. Love the exotic matchbooks though. Guess I was born 20 years too late...
