Bigbro,

You must have misinterpreted my post. Clearly the 1945 Pago Pago menu was the inspiration for the Zombie Hut logo almost two decades later. I thought it was funny that the Zombie Hut version nixed the plate, bowl and utensils from the Pago Pago version that had to connote some cannibal overtones!

As for the Marysville location, I had posted some info on that in your Pago Pago thread.

Sorry, missed that little "plate & fork" comment, very observant! Just went by the date, being that the Zombie Hut started in '45 too.

THAT Pago Pago, with that great exterior mural! Man there is just too much to remember!

Picked up one of the black Zombie Hut matchcovers.




What's cool about his is they advertised a Tiki Room on the back of the cover.

Found a menu in a magazine called "Dining Out" guide from the late 1970's-I have yet to actually see an actual Zombie Hut menu, but this will suffice for now.

Looking at this I was wondering why Pago Pago, the capital of American Samoa, would be associated with cannibalism. So I looked it up on Wikipedia and got:
The village of Aua in American Samoa is well known for its ceremonial field or malae, named Malaeopaepaeulupoo ("Field of stacked skulls"). Between the late 13th century to early 14th century, the cannibal chief Tuifeai, also known as Tuisamoa, the son of Tuifiti, lived in Malaeloa, which is adjacent to the village and ancient capital of American Samoa. (Tuisamoa is the title Malietoa gave him after he was born, from the union of the Tuifiti with Malietoa's sister). The Tuifeai required sacrifices of humans as his meal everyday, this tradition is called aso, or "the king's day".

It's interesting how the Tiki bar Zombie phenomenon would then incorporate the Tiki bar cannibalism curiosity which has a deep tradition in Tiki bars as the cannibal carving trio

Pretty amazing how the original drawing is so direct in its cannibalism. A native drummer also cooking humans (human skull) and that is the iconography for a restaurant. Like the icon for a Rib Joint being a happy Pig with a BBQ grill.

I have this souvenir mailer from the Pago Pago in Marysville circa 1945 that features a very similar image to the Zombie Hut drummer...



They decided to take away the plates and utensils from the image at the Zombie Hut for less of a "cannibal" concept!





Tiki Transmission Tradition!
