Crazy Al Evans has posted some pictures of work he’s doing on a new bar in Long Beach called Puka Bar on Tiki Central. He suggests that there’s a link to an ‘insider’ at The Lucky Tiki in Mission Hills and Bigfoot Lodge, both of which are owned by Bobby Green, but Green isn’t mentioned by name; perhaps the connection is someone else. The bar is at the location of the former K B Club. The pictures posted by Crazy Al show his work on carving tapa-like designs into the edge of the existing wood bar, and also include some shots that give a peek at the layout of the place. No word yet on when it might open.

    Well, I live behind the “new” bar.
    Yes, it’s coming.
    But, nothing opens until the Inspectors arrive.

    So, let’s have a grand Tiki toast and send out the vibes for the “approval” at the end of January!

    Oh, and if the inspection gets a green light, I will be having the first “event” there in February. So, send me your email and I will send you an evite….
