Well I found another usage of the same clown tiki that almost graced the Hut. Doen't look quite as awful as line art but still not good. I'm pretty sure the third one actually was a clown that they added some flowers to.

Maybe this will be my last post on this thread as the Bahi Hut story is now one of careful restoration and we have left the awful clown tikis far behind in the dust. But to bring the story full circle to where it started, the owner's son is very involved with the revitalization and on Easter Sunday he pulled me aside to thank us for saving the place from the clown tikis. It seems the night before, the guy who made the big redwood shit tikis dragged one up to the Hut and tried to get them to buy it one last time. He complained bitterly of me and all the "tiki yahoos" that ruined the sale of his party city rejects and how these things were going to make a big difference if we tacked them to the front of our building. The owners politely declined and told me they were even more awful in person. They they told me to commission more real tikis, which I did. Next up a 5' Maori tiki by Patrick Vassar. Stay tuned for that in a separate thread. We came a long way since August and the work is not over yet!


By the way, all of us working on the restoration are going to get t-shirts with Tiki Yahoos proudly emblazoned on them. Hell, may even start a band by that name.

....hmmmmm.....

You may be thinking to close this thread as a way of purging your mind of the terrible struggle.

I encourage you to consider continuing this thread indefinitely to document and celebrate your efforts and success.

You might want to Open a new thread "The Great Bahi Hut of Sarasota...." to help people find the place and to share in the clean new TIKI BAR that you have helped to restore and reconstruct.

A great new thread of events, and opportunities to reward/acknowledge the owners with our patronage.

Just a Thought from the West Coast....

I racked up a good bar tab there a few weeks ago as a result of the posts by robotiki. My liver thanks you! Very friendly place with a nice authentic retro vibe. Cheers!!!

Looks like the abominable clown tikis still have not found a buyer, so they're up for sale again:

Their ad showed up in a sidebar when I was viewing the Florida Tiki facebook feed.
