I finally found a Tiki Bob matchbook. It took me forever.



And here's another "borrowed" Bob on the back of the South Pacific Restaurant matchbook from Florida.

Here's a nice exterior shot.

And a great interior view.

Nice, Uncle Trav - I don't think I've seen that interior shot before... it really gives you a clear idea of the layout.

I've seen other "lingerie lunch girl" photos before, but not this one:


...the newscopy is *priceless*

Date: 1959 Mar. 30.
"These diners at a restaurant - Tiki Bob's - here are enjoying cheesecake provided for them by the management, but it isn't the edible kind. Restaurant owner Bob Bryant has run up his lunches from 45 to over 450 daily by providing 'fashion shows,' with heavy emphasis on lingerie. Police issued an edict to have the shows stopped, claiming 'there is a time and place for everything.' But there was no raid 3/30 as model Rene Mills displayed a swim suit.".

Found it at the SF Public Library:

I was wondering if anyone has an image of the Tiki Bob menu.

I checked Critiki and it wasn't there and if its in the Book of Tiki I don't own it (horror of horrors I know!)

Any help on this would be appreciated . Thanks!

That Tiki Bob menu cover is actually one of the handful of images that is reprinted in both, The Book of Tiki AND Tiki Modern..

Will it score a Hat Trick with an appearance in The Look of Tiki?

Naaaw...unless Tiki Kate finds a vintage shirt with him on it! Which, observing her tenacity, is entirely possible!

That, or, (if it ever existed), a 40s Don The Beachcomber blouse with the Cannibal Carvings on it...

Noticed two what look to be mugs sitting just to the left of the fish tank in the interior shot postcard. Does anyone have one of these mugs they could post a photo of? Here's a not very good closeup.
