A collection of advertisements for old Polynesian restaurants is forming in a thread on Tiki Central. Many of these ads come from old phone directories. The above 1967 advertisement was posted by thread-starter Chub, and is from the Chin Tiki in Detroit.

    Awww, Chin Tiki. I ate at it’s sister restaurant this past Friday. It’s a shame Chin Tiki’s being sold off. *sigh*

    It is sad, isn’t it? The writing was on the wall for a long, long time of course, but it’s still sad.
