Tiki? Tikki? Tiki Bar? Enlighten me

Kris in Beijing | Mar 31, 2013 01:43 PM

On more than one current post, CHers are lamenting the demise and disappearance of THE TIKI BAR.

At the ripening age of 44 with a completely nonalcoholic background, I'm clueless. Say "tiki" to me, and I think two things--
The Tikitikitiki tiki barrrr song from Disney
Dishes enhanced with canned Dole heated through with Heinz. and called Polynesian.
OH-- and I guess I get a "bamboo hut" image.
But that's all.

So-- definitions? Menus? Must haves? Stories? Glories? [and maybe a few horrors to boot]
