Having used this book as a guide on one of the most epic road trips ever, I feel I can safely give this an emphatic 5 stars. Yes!

Excellent title with lots of good information, but not completely up-to-date anymore. Check online before you make plans, a lot of these places have unfortunately gone out of business.

It was a fun trip through tiki-ville. Glad that the distinction was made between tiki pop culture and true Hawaiian culture. A number of local places are already gone since the printing of this book but it is nice to read about them.

It's amazing the number of establishments devoted to Polynesian pop culture. If I've ever got a hankering for a mai tai and some bamboo, I know where to turn. Pleased as planter's punch to know that I've already been to one of the more authentic digs, Forbidden Island in Alameda.

I've been meaning to check this one out because it is probably as close as I'll ever get to the South Seas (unless you count Australia) and I used to know the author. The fact that the national expert on tiki comes from Cleveland makes improbable sense somehow!

I got this from the library and have enjoyed it. I will be adding a copy to my personal collection since I will want it for quick, future reference.
