Her is another funny ad drawn by Jack Davis for the Pub Tiki. Davis was an illustrator for Mad Magazine.

This ad is a take off on the "Road to" movies done by Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, the Saronged Siren.




Is it sarong... Funny stuff!

Classic! It even has that damn "1 1/2" in it. Bing and Bob sing of "double-sized potions" which does hint the 1 1/2 refers to the ounces of liquor (NOT the parking), as suggested before - but that's not double!

Those "Road to.." movies must have been the longest running Exotica movie concept ever!

Umm...talk about "just a bit too late":
"In 1977, an eighth Road to ... movie was planned, titled Road to the Fountain of Youth; however, Crosby died that year of a heart attack."

I found a few more of the Jack Davis ads for Pub Tiki announcing the opening day on July 10, 1961.

This is a great one featuring the cast and crew of the Tiki from Adventures in Paradise.





Another one with Confucius weighing in on the opening.





And this one is like the one Sabu posted but it is announcing the opening on July 10.






Another ad listing all of the freebies offered at the bar.



Somewhere along the way the vaunted 1 1/2 hours of free parking morphed into reduced parking!

Parking is no joke in Philly.

One more from Jack Davis. This time it features the crew from the old cartoon Terry and his Pirates



They got thrown in jail for trying to steal the King Kamehameha stature for Pub Tiki!
