Ray's Mistake, Black Widow at Tiki Ti
Time Out says
Posted: Wed Sep 26 2012
In Los Angeles, with its year-round warm weather, Sunset’s Polynesian-themed tiki bar never goes out of season. Jam-packed (like an episode of Hoarders) with blowfish, tribal masks and faux tropical foliage, entering Tiki-Ti is like taking a tropical vacation without the plane ticket. As one would expect, the kitschy bar serves brightly-colored tropical drinks—Mai Tai or Blue Hawaiian does the trick—with the requisite pineapple and maraschino cherry skewer. Surprisingly, this place generally packs a long line, not because there’s a red velvet rope out front, but because of the dive’s miniscule size.
