Not much is known about the Tiki Kai location, which had been sold and changed names in the late 60s to "Brothers Two" or Brothers 2, which continued the polynesian theme. Sometime in the 1970's this location became a Pizza Hut and served up pizza until 2008, when it finally closed. The former Pizza Hut building is still there(not the A-frame), but now serves as a private practice medical building.
I came to find out by some old Hawthorne High Schoolers that:
- "Tiki Kai" was the original structure built in the 1950s.
- It was sold in the late 50s/early 60's and became the "Sugar Shack" dancehall.
- It once again changed hands and became the "Brothers Two" mid to late 1960's.
- In the early 1970's it was demolished and the property was converted into a Pizza Hut.
If anyone has any specific dates, please add them, as these are obviously loose timelines.
