The Tiki Kai in Albuquerque from Modern Man magazine July 1966. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get the customers into your joint.

Uh, yeah, where is his attention… Not on that great tiki lamp!

Hey, is that a Barney West tiki? It’s definitely an OMC Surfer Girl mug!

UPDATE: I loaned these magazines to Sven Kirsten, author of the Book of Tiki a while back and he has informed me that images from the magazines (another one I have not blogged) will account for two pages in his new book coming out early next year. So, consider this a tantilizing sneak preview! When can I pre-order this new book?

UPDATE: These images are in Tiki Modern
