Tucson’s Kon Tiki To Host Huge 50th Anniversary Celebration

If you’ve never been to Kon Tiki, for one, I’d find that hard to believe. Two, you need to get your ass over there.

According to their website, Kon Tiki is:

One of the last remaining, operational tiki temples from American’s mid-century tiki past. The interior is almost completely original from the opening day – including the largest collection of Milan Guanko tikis in the world.

It really is a cool place. And, they’ve been around for fifty years. Fifty. That’s a long time to be in business in Tucson. To celebrate, Kon Tiki is hosting a big party on Saturday, April 5th, 2014 with live music, a special 1963 menu, all kinds of merchandise, vendors, and more.

Here’s their promotional video…
