Just west of the strip, not far from the 15, lies Frankie's Tiki Room. A small, white, stand alone, single building on Charleston with a large sign out front beckoning one to enter. This little oasis far from the $18 rum and cokes, is the perfect example of a non-pretentious establishment that repels the snobbery of the dayclub/nightclub culture of Vegas. Blinded By The Light...

What would be more appropriate for this time of year than - wait for it, waiiiiiit... Pumpkin Spice! Hah, you did see...
Hula's Island Grill is a small chain of two restaurants around the Monterey Bay in California. While I had actually been to the location in Monterey, I recently went to both locations. Thought now with both fresh in memory, would be appropriate to get them both onto the Tiki Hut. Santa Cruz The Santa Cruz location, is in an area that I somewhat assume is a downtown-esque...
