Those of you old enough to remember will recall a neat little lounge at the Villager on O Street. My folks used to go there back in its heyday. My Mom said "Your father made a fool of himself there". Boy I'd love to have been a fly on the wall then. My in-laws had more happy (ha!) recollections of Aku Tiki.
I don't recall if I've ever been there and I wish I did. The web hasn't been very gracious with even the slightest anecdote from visitors but I'll keep digging. I love the tiki/polynesian scene and wish we had something similiar in Lincoln today.
Thanks to ebay and a seller right here in Lincoln, I can pretend I'm there having a delicious Mai Tai or Sidewinder's Fang in my own mugs specially created for the Aku Tiki back in who-knows-when.
If any of you have a memory of Lincoln's only Tiki bar, please share. Thank you!
