I'll ask my mom about the restaurant. We lived near that area when I was young.

A bizarre paralell to the old Tiki Bar Review Pages:
Hoardes of 'em, all over the US.
They're even subdivided into categories.
Do the people who like this sort of stuff think that their proclivities are perfecty natural and that liking phony Polynesian fertility gods is indescribably bizarre?
I scratch my head in their general direction, just as they must when confronted with us... or with the Owl Centralites.

my theory is that if your interests are represented in a 'zippy' strip, you cannot consider yourself mainstream or normal
needless to say, there is practically a one-to-one parity between my interests and their representation in a 'zippy' strip
