Looks like a brand new Tiki Room will be opening it's doors very soon (this month!) in Vancouver BC. This has been in the works for months and there have been rumblings of a grand opening weekend of March 22nd. There's an alluring Facebook thread in conjunction with this as well, promising great things to come.

A handful of leaked photos have been located in regards to the new Tiki room that looks to be opening soon in Vancouver BC. It's been a pretty well guarded spot, no one allowed in and not much in the way of announcements. These pictures come from a reputable source though and give the impression of something pretty cool it would appear.
One of the shots was taken of (I assume) the new owner buying a virtual boatload of stuff at Oceanic arts to ship to Canada.

Shouldn't the Shameful Tiki have it's own entry in Locating?

Here's something else I spied on the web:

Why yes it should, Slacks.

Thanks for posting that link. Here are the photos that accompanied the Vancouver Sun article:

I also clicked
this link next to the Shameful Tiki Room article, which is a small gallery of images of Vancouver tiki bars/restaurants over the years, including these two photos of Trader Vic's that I haven't seen before:



Trader Vic’s manager Jeff Yee, June 26, 1970.



"The famous doors at Vancouver’s Trader Vic’s, before it was closed and torn down in May 1999."
