When I was a kid we'd visit my grandfather and go to the Kowloon in Saugus MA. I loved the mugs, the food, the Polynesian-style atmosphere, which I didn't see much with my normal daily life as a New-England Island kid. (Beaches: yes. Tiki: no.) As an adult, I discovered I was fascinated. I can't explain my obsession, especially being a North-Easterner....but my family tolerates my tiki-addiction.
