I gotta agree with BTD - Nice, well-made huts: Not Tiki.

Yeah, yeah, I know that some Palapa structures are now called Tiki Huts, but that's an unfortunate watering down of what "Tiki Hut" used to mean and should mean:

Vintage Tiki Hut:

Modern Tiki Hut:

Palapa "Tiki" Hut:

If you can show me the actual carved tikis or how the restaurant is related to Classic or Modern Polynesian Pop, then it can stay in Locating Tiki. Otherwise it needs to be moved to Beyond Tiki.

For instance, a Chinese restaurant that still serves Polynesian cocktails in Tiki Mugs is peripherally related enough to classic Poly-Pop that it has a place in Locating Tiki.

From the Tiki Central definition page:

"Everyone here at Tiki Central is passionate about the Polynesian Pop movement. While the exact edges are blurry, we can give you a bit of insight into what Tiki Central is not about:

Itís not about the Caribbean/Key west design aesthetic
Itís not about Reggae..."

Don't get me wrong. I like Reggae and I like Palapa huts. But I don't want them called Tiki. And if Locating Tiki gets cluttered up with non-Polynesian-Pop locations, then it makes it hard to find the real ones when doing searches.

I've been there, and it's just like every other beachside/waterfront restaurant in Florida. Nice enough, I guess, but hardly tiki.
