There is another thread about a room key, and the hunt stopping with a phone call. When I called the number there was no answer... May have to make the trip south out of Austin to check it out.

Me neither... Could lead to nothing, but could leave to older Post Cards, Ash Trays, Matchbooks, maybe even a coffee mug.

The address at the top of this thread doesn't match what's on the postcard. The postcard's address appears to be correct.

350 E Aviation Blvd
Universal City, TX 78148-4500

These pictures are from GoogleMaps and are dated March 2013. If it's still in business, there sure aren't very many cars around.

I noticed that too... I pulled that address from a site listing the property for sale. Hoping to go down there maybe this weekend. If not I have a few days of Leave coming up, and if anything can search the cities records. Would love to find more local Tiki.

I look forward to reading about your findings. If you go, please also check out the "Pebble Beach Village" apartments next door. It looks like it also has a A-frame entrance. I wonder if it to was originally Polynesian.
